  1. It is very heartening to a citizen of the US born here to see immigrant blogs such as this just as upset (perhaps more so) as guys like me are about these protests and what they are trying to accomplish.

  2. Chris, we’re Americans too. Cuban Americans are living, breathing proof of how great the American Dream is. But here’s the kicker: When we see our brothers and sisters escaping on rafts from Cuba, risking becoming shark bait, returned to a brutal communist dictatorship, and then we see our government possibly offering 11,000,000 illegals amnesty, we know there is something desparately woring. That’s how I feel. I’ll let our readers make their own peace.

  3. There’s so much hypocrisy involved in this issue it’s staggering. First off, what’s wrong with our current laws other than the fact that they are not enforced? Passing more laws, along with amnesty does nothing to solve the problem. The real question is does the United States have the right to determine its immigration laws? Listening to congress and the media, apparently not, and then there’s Mexico’s hypocrisy- have you read their constitution?

    Article 32. Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable. In time of peace no foreigner can serve in the Army nor in the police or public security forces.

    In order to belong to the National Navy or the Air Force, and to discharge any office or commission, it is required to be a Mexican by birth. This same status is indispensable for captains, pilots, masters, engineers, mechanics, and in general, for all personnel of the crew of any vessel or airship protected by the Mexican merchant flag or insignia It is also necessary to be Mexican by birth to discharge the position of captain of the port and all services of pratique and airport commandant, as well as all functions of customs agent in the Republic.

    And, from Aritcle 33 of the Mexican constitution: Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.

    Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.

  4. I have no problem with any number of Mexicans moving to America *legally* but people who are willing to break American laws before their second foot is even in the country are people we don;t need.
