Nearly a hundred people were in Elks Park Tuesday evening to support the reform of immigration laws, which they said were too tough, hurt the country’s economy and kept them from living out the American dream.

“I came just like many of you, and I don’t need to repeat what kind of endeavor that was, but it was a horrible endeavor,” Alvarado said in Spanish, speaking obliquely about the trek through the desert that many undocumented immigrants go through. “I’m an immigrant just like anyone else who goes from one place to another.” All he wanted, he said, was “to be part of a place, part of a family, part of a community.”

Of course, there was some irony in some of their stories. Leonardo, a Norwood resident who didn’t want his last name used, said he loves America because it has a solid system of laws, instead of the corrupt system of bribes he said exists in Mexico. But America’s laws say you have to have papers. It’s a law Leonardo breaks every day.

I get cross eyed every time I read things like this. The lack of any type of intelligence scares me, there really are a large number of people out there who think this way AND want to be a part of this country. Boggling

It is mind-boggling. And to think, they walk among us.

No, Mr. Alvarado you aren't an immigrant. You are an illegal alien. So you didn't come here like "immigrants" do. You were already part of a family, community and place in your homeland but you chose to desert them.

And Leonardo if you want to be a part of a country who respects the rule of law then why did you choose to break those country's laws as your first action? America isn't the only country who demands papers to come here. Your own homeland does also and every other country on this planet.

Talk about delusional thinking.

Despite the fact that the Rule of Law obviously does not apply to Mexico/Central America with the possible exception of Costa Rica------that does not give the likes of Leonardo the right to pull that crap here in the USA.

When in Rome: do as the Romans do.

Reminds me of the congressman who objected on the house floor about his state not needing 5,000 illiterate peasants - wasn't he also from Colorado?

Mandatory IQ testing for all illegals who want to stay on in the US if any sort of accommodation is to be made. We have enough of our own home-grown morons to go around - no need to import more.
