“Still we turn a blind eye to immigration”

From the Minnesota Star comes this must-read, a thoughtful analysis of the human tragedy that is US immigration policy. Abigail Ramirez, the guest columnist, writes:

One hundred years from now, our great-great-great-grandchildren will look back at this period and wonder why we stood silent while millions of people in our country who were contributing to our economy, fixing our food, cleaning our offices and raising our children were allowed to be treated as indentured servants — as a subclass of people we allowed to be exploited — and were forced into the shadows of society. We reap the benefits of their labor, the economic stimulus they create, the way in which they transform our neighborhoods, and their rich culture. In return, we give nothing.

If you should read the comments, one of the SIGNIFICANT realities they miss is that “illegals” are not, technically, law breakers. They violate immigration rules and regulations, but are not charged with any “law” being broken because it is neither a misdemeanor or felony to do what they have done. But that is all a technicality, right? Because what we are talking about here is so much bigger than people keeping their imaginary worlds neatly organized.

    America’s Voice TV Posted this Video ( Conservative Anti Immigration ). America’s Voice TV posts Videos of Child Murderers and Racists in YouTube. America’s Voice TV and FAIR are promoting this lowest scum of child murderers and racists, and the Minutemen too !!

    Shawna Forde, arrested as a suspect in a deadly home invasion in Arizona, has ties to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), an anti-immigrant group classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Hat tip to http://TonyHerrera.com for finding this 2006 video.

    Republicans master the art of “Guilt by Association”, they have always applied it to Mr. Obama, even if Reverend Wright has not killed any child.
