>Arizona and California

What did Arizona do to cause such a furor? They passed a law that requires non-citizens carry papers showing their legal right to be in this country. Evidently, this was actually the law already. What is the big deal? And now people are crying “RACISM!!!” because the police are stopping Hispanic people to check their papers. These are the same people crying about racial profiling when some people wanted closer scrutiny paid to people of Middle Eastern descent. I wonder why? I mean, when is the last time a 60 year old granny blew up a building in a terrorist plot? I refer you to http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/ where you can see the worldwide death toll that has been enacted by Muslims from 9/12/01 up to today.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again: I am pro-immigration. I think the United States, while imperfect, is still the best place to live on earth, and I welcome those who wish to become a part of our country…LEGALLY. I know that becoming a citizen can be a long and difficult path. Nothing worth doing is easy. But these people that assume that becoming a US Citizen is a right every person should enjoy? Insane. We are a nation of laws, and part of that law is who gets to be a part of our society. People shouldn’t be able to cross our border with impunity and belly up to the trough of public assistance.
In the past day or so, I have heard people argue that we should accept these people because they are poor, they are starving, etc, and they have no other choice but to break the law and cross our border illegally. While I can understand their reasons for doing so, does it change the fact that what they are doing is wrong? What do you call a person who takes what does not belong to them? A thief. See the attached picture for a Mexican protestor’s opinion of what the United States should do to illegal immigrants.
Some of these people successfully cross the border and then start to get “entitlement-itis.” They think the world owes them. I read a news article yesterday about a school in Morgan Hill, CA (which is still part of the US, last I checked) that sent some students home for having the gall to wear shirts depicting the US flag’s colors on May 5th. That’s right, boys and girls: they wore United States colors to a United States school on a day celebrating the independence of Mexico. The principal stated that he asked them to turn their shirts inside out or go home. He told them he didn’t want any fighting between Mexican-American students celebrating Cinco de Mayo and the student who were wearing American flags. Well excuse me, but this is America, and American students should be able to wear patriotic shirts supporting our country on ANY day of the year, not just on days that are also patriotic days of other countries.
