Good job, again...now maybe we can work on reading comprehension...

So if a family learnt English, paid taxes, participated in community events...but were illegal, would they not be integrated in said community? Do you understand that integration doesn't have to mean amnesty. Amnesty has a completely different meaning. With your mastery of a dictionary, hopefully you can figure it out...

So you're just another smooth talking "de facto" amnesty peddler trying to blur the lines. Learning English and paying taxes and having anchors isn't enough to keep an illegal alien from being arrested and deported. You don't seem to get that?

Do you ever simply read what is written? Or do you go far out and find hidden meanings that aren't there...

You do know what "de facto" amnesty means don't you? Illegals allowed to stay and work in this country as if they were legal.

Read the words only...that's all I'm saying. Don't include other variables and try to extrapolate meanings. It's really a bad technique in terms of making a point...

Mincing words are we? Now that's a bad technique in terms of making a point. OK then, allowing illegals to stay in the US and integrate into the community is "de facto" amnesty, what you're peddling.

It's a no brainer, isn't it?
