Arrest them. If not legally here, give them to "La Migra".

How far we've strayed when this gets people out of shape

You'd have to believe that they were all citizens, or here legally otherwise. The law strengthens the ability, maybe the requirement, to establish their valid presence in the US.

You justify the news spin on this non issue by acting outraged and hot linking it online

Eh. I'm dead-set against sanctuary cities. We have laws for a reason. Don't like 'em, get them changed legally.

Don't block streets and throw a tantrum because we have laws and you don't like 'em. Legal immigration = good. Jumping the line and saying "eff you" by coming in anyhow even if it's not legal is not good. No other country is stupid enough to do things like this.

It's easy to say that til it's something YOU care about. Civil disobedience has a history going back to when we were colonies.

Should the African Americans in Selma just have "voted?"

I'm sure they inconvenienced a lot of people with their marches.

You can claim that this is totally different, but it isn't, at least not to those lying in the street.

It amazes me that (mostly) the people who are shouting to enforce the laws are the same ones that have so much disregard for our constitution.

A lot of people have strayed a LOOOOONG way from the values this country was founded on. I guess it's no longer convenient....

One of the protesters was interviewed on the news and admitted she was an undocumented immigrant. Her daughter confirmed, concerned that she would be deported. I believe it was only one of the five or six who were undocumented.
