    How or why is it that we (our military) can help Iraq protect it's borders, but we're called racists and fascists for wanting to protect our own?

    Anyone?

    Why should we even concern ourselves with other countries such as Iraq when we're broke and our own borders are spread so wide?

    Because the people in Iraq are not potential Democratic voters like the illegal aliens are that sneak into our country are.

    Deart asshole , you are only ONE member of the military and dont speak for them all.

    You see there are plenty of people in the military who think this law is a piece of shit, not all of them are Latino either.


    Here is what will NO DOUBT happen.

    Some latino military guy or gal will come home on leave and be sent to la migra for not having their "being brown in Arizona" papers on them.

    I agree! But we're there! And we continue to send $$$ to other countries instead of keeping it right here!

    And let's add, why are we racists for wishing to have similar immigration laws to the ones in effect in MEXICO?

    Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:
    - in the country legally;
    - have the means to sustain themselves economically;
    - not destined to be burdens on society;
    - of economic and social benefit to society;
    - of good character and have no criminal records; and
    - contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

    The law also ensures that:
    - immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
    - foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
    - foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country's internal politics;
    - foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
    - foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
    - those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.


    Immigration Reform? Let's Try Mexico's Immigration Law!

    This talk of stakes has me a wee bit concerned...

    It cracks me up because of all the noise people are making about the new law in Arizona. The thing that you don't hear mentioned, is that if you are an alien you are required to carry your green card with you, on your person, at all times. That's a Federal law. So, why is everybody all up in arms about complying with Federal law?

    Motive.

    What is our motive for fighting and defending Iraq?

    What is our motive for keeping "illegal" aliens out of this country?

    That is what I think it all boils down to.

    I've a mixed feeling on the illegal alien situation. I think the only reason they come is because we make it profitable for them to come. As long as we do, they will keep on coming. As for those who bitch and moan about the illegals, well, I think they are not thinking about what would happen if they didn't come. Personally, I think we need and want them here. We just won't admit to it.

    As for Iraq, I'm told if we were not there the government of Iraq would collapse and something worse would fill the gap. Not being an expert on Middle Eastern politics, I suppose I have to accept that statement.
