Legal immigrants should be expected to assimilate; and everyone should endeavor to be a “decent” human being, and raise productive children. How is this relevant? Had she been a staunch anti-illegal, and supported more stringent enforcement of our laws, I doubt you would be heralding praises.

Furthermore, why do you have this compelling need to obfuscate? My issue (and the majority of anti’s), is not legal immigrants. Nor have I read one post accusing legal immigrants of the “invaders.”
Probably because the pro illegal crowd realizes that time is running out for their morally bankrupt cause and are screaming in impotent rage as the USS Amnesty is sinking.

MOrning Mums............. I cant and wont disagree on the other aspect of her cursade.
She looses credibility by helping the illegals, I was meerly commenting that she at least tried to do it right.

Its a slippery slope..................what is enough and what is to much?

Good morning Convert I hear you. It is indeed a slippery slope. More each day it appears that you can't give them an inch unless you are prepared hand them the extra mile.

I was merely agreeing with a member and saying why I personally thought this woman deserves credit(without attacking anyone on here). If you don't agree with me, thats fine. But keep your snarky and condescending attitude to yourself or save if it when someone really is attacking you.

As far as my "compelling need", there's always going to be people in this world who don't see things like you. And you're going to hear from them. I've come to terms with it and life is so much better.
Snarky? Condescending? Wow! I didn’t consider your post to be a personal attack. I simply highlighted your pattern of juxtaposing legal with illegal, and your embellishment of anti-illegal comments. If you don’t want to be ‘called out’ on hyperbole, perhaps you should refrain from using it. Your agitation is duly noted.

There was nothing snarky or condescending about your post. Apparently, the ticking time bomb creates agitation in some.
