Getting Caught Up

Man, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted here.  A  big move, a new job, and a new city to get used to makes a man…hard pressed for time to do much of anything else besides adjust.  Anyway, this is going to be a ‘catch-all’ post:

LightContrast: Hey, thanks for your comment (go read The Great Debate of Immigration).  I’m not exactly sure what to think about that bill.  To be honest, I’m not sure what the current state of it is.  On the one side, I think that fine is so high, that most immigrants won’t be able to pay it, forcing them to uproot families and move back to their home country.  On the other hand though, if they are hear “illegally” then that implies they have broken some laws, for which there are (and should be) repercussions.  Yes, America is the ‘Land of Opportunity’, but we’re not supposed to be operating under an open-door policy either.  The government’s main charge is to provide for and protect the people who elected said government.  In America, that means legal citizens of the United State.  We have no formal, legal or even moral (in my eyes) commitment to provide shelter, housing, health care, education or anything else the government provides to people who are not a legal part of our nation.  Now, if they want to become legal, by all means let them, but I find it highly disturbing that a group of foreign people can march into another nation and demand that the nation changes it’s laws and way of life to accommodate them.

    Too many conservatives were against it as well as liberals. Everyone found something to hate about it. Ted Kennedy said bitterly that people just want the status quo, no change in border security.
