Ok, my repeated requests for ANY pro-illegal to provide just ONE cogent argument for illegal immigration and amnesty, have fallen on deaf ears. The usual pro-illegal inculcation of “they are only here seeking a better life” has no validity. Nor do the other ‘excuses’ for those who willfully and flagrantly violate our laws.

Ignore your emotions for a moment, and REALLY think about this issue objectively. C’mon, convince us anti’s why we are on the wrong side of this issue. There must be someone up to the task.

Please, let’s keep it civil.

(ahem)...testing 1-2-3....am i on ?....ok..

"I think immigrants SHOULD be legalized because they're already HERE. I don't think ANY American, legal or NOT, should be kicked out of the country he's moved INTO. I don't think hard working people should be kept from working. I don't think racists should be making laws. I think we're ALL immigrants except the Indians, and they don't count. I think we're the richest country in the WORLD, and it's our duty to take people in (goodness knows, they've certainly taken US in)....and I think people who object to illegals do so for only ONE reason...they hate the Mexican race....if there were 20 million SWEDISH immigrants here, we'd be DELIGHTED. No human is illegal, and I don't want to pay $12 for a flat of strawberries and I like diversity...and Mexican cuisine beats the HELL out of McDonald's ANY day of la semana....I mean week"

there....how did i do? hope THAT gets the thread 'rolling'...

PS...we KNOW amnesty can work..it's worked BEAUTIFULLY a number of times in the past......and those who benefitted can't thank us ENOUGH !!!

Obviously, there is no defense for the indefensible. The silence is confirmation.

You haven't been around many lawyers, I take it. ANYTHING is defensible...for a fee, payable in advance. The defensible is easy...the indefensible takes a little more money. Side issues help tremendously, too (race, guilt, etc) But there's NOTHING that's indefensible.

Caution: Let's not hold our collective breath waiting for anything resembling a viable or legitimate response to the OP's inquiry.

I don't know about the rest of you but asphyxiation does not appeal to me in the least.

Unfortunately, I have been around too many lawyers; which is precisely why I couldn't be one. You're right; everything has a price in our corrupt, amoral society.

Count me out. If we held our breath, we would all be dead.

....(cough).....sniff......look at ceiling......(sigh)...



(waiting)


I have ONE thought, Benicar...maybe your WORDING is over the heads of some of us. Maybe NO ONE sees himself as an "illegal immigrant apologist", because so many people feel that "Being illegal is NOTHING to have to APOLOGIZE for.."....maybe. Otherwise, I can't explain the silence.

Sorry Benicar but I'm with 1Angry on this one.

I have a feeling we could all check back in a week and we'd still be the only posters in this thread.
