"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

The preceding quote sums it all up for me.

If you want to come to this country do it like all the rest of our ancestors did through the regular process or go through today’s equivalent of Ellis Island. If you come to America speak English, owe no allegiance to anyone else (I see a lot of Mexican flags at those rallies), and PAY TAXES like the rest of us. If you disagree get OUT!!!

With perhaps 70% of Americans demanding action on this all we get from Washington is the usual blast of hot air that is empty rhetoric and BS.

The reason why Bush and The GOP can’t find the balls to do anything about this problem is the fact that Big Business that controls this administration and the GOP. The corporate masters of these lying scumbags want cheap labor to fill the jobs that they say no one else will do ..this is BS!!! This is merely an excuse to bring in cheap labor to take American jobs, crush any type of collective bargaining and in the end depress wages for all American Jobs.

I live in the West and have seen it first hand. First the illegals came in and did the jobs that truly no one wanted and then they began to take the Construction jobs that paid decently for unskilled labor. Now that has continued to happen across the board with all other jobs

Don’t expect anything from the Democratic Party either as they will do everything to attract the Latino voters that the GOP is losing. They will merely look at this as a wedge issue that will get them votes for 06 and 08. They may win in the end, but the American people will lose as the Average Middle Class American finds his wages depressed and gets stuck with the bill from the cost of the overburdened system that is used by these non tax paying Illegals.

Truly, if you look at the record, with the MILLIONS of jobs that have been off shored under Bush and GOP, as well as, the depression of wages, the Globalization of the economy that was supposed to level the playing field for the Average Stiff all over the world has done nothing but take us one step closer to GLOBAL FUEDALISM with the few super rich and the Corporations calling the shots and the rest of us lowered to the status of mere SERFS to serve the machine for a pittance of our once middle class wages.

In Washington THEY ARE WHORES ONE AND ALL. It is time for a third party that no longer feeds at the trough of Special Interest and Lobbyist and SERVES THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

You make a couple of really valid points about the immigration issue. I believe this is not only the front line on our national security debate, but also an serious economic issue we must all look into. This, however, ends the points in which we share a similar view. It's obvious that you dislike bush, and his administration, however, you are mad at him for not being conservative enough, something does not make sense. For a right-winger like myself, the immigration debate is an open and shut case, if you committed a crime, in which many have by simply being here, you either go to jail, or go home, it's that simple. We fund the worlds biggest prison, on Mexico soil, and store repeat offenders. If this does not work we sanction the Mexican government until they do something, and they will. What troubles me is the angle which you seem to want to take. Instead of making the point that it was a national issue, affecting every American in this country, you narrow the burden down to a middle/lower class one. This seems to reek of politics, rather than immigration. Also, you speak of all the jobs that bush has sent offshore, or the good paying, unskilled labor jobs that are being taken over by illegals. Instead of whining like the unions have for the past 50 years, why not move people away from these types of jobs, and increase the education requirements of all lucrative jobs. The answer should be education, not bush's fault for a lack of unskilled labor. In closing, it's safe to say that every American has a stake in the immigration debate. To slap those in the face that have waited years and years to obtain their citizenship legally, would not only be wrong, it would be un-American.
