Immigration

You know, all of the marches against revisions to our immigration laws is a little unsettling. Today, thousands of high school students protested in Los Angeles and 1,500 or so protested in Dallas. There has not been so much passion on American streets since Vietnam. The issue is all over the talk radio stations and the tone is, well, in a word, racist. There are so many calls referring to "those people" and "them". We have a problem we need to deal with. Anyone who thinks we can (and should) simply scoop up millions of illegal aliens and send them back to Mexico lives in his own fantasy world. And as President Bush said today, "“If you are doing a job that Americans won't do, you're welcome here for a period of time to do that job.”
