    "THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

    THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

    THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    THEN THEY CAME for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up."

    "No", then don't. But I never expected you CG to actually think beyond the emotion of the moment. Hate, Fear - works everytime with 'your kind'.

    Funny how these lefty dimmies want us to be like every other country out there but they don't believe we should enforce our immigration laws as thoroughly as other countries do.

    Do some research on how tough it is to move to another country.

    You have no idea what 'your kind' is, moron.

    I don't hate anyone. No one is that important that I should waste time 'hating'. It is the accusation of the moronic. What you don't understand, you must label. That's because you're a fool.

    They came first for the Illegal Aliens
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't an Illegal Alien

    Then they came for the Non-Living,
    and I didn't speak up because I was living

    Then they made me show ID when I voted,
    and I didn't speak up because I had a valid drivers license and only voted once.

    Then we had an election
    And Democrats lost every single race

    I love that poem, WryCatcher. I can appreciate the suffering of Latinos (legal, illegal, residing in other nations but hoping to move here, planning to remain on where they are -- and anyone else I have forgotten to list). I truely can.

    But it is the AMERICAN Southwest. It is not a no-mans-land where people of any nation can flow freely back and forth across the border. No other nation's residents view themselves as having some "inalienable right to American citizenship". The idea is absurd.

    People used to cry when they first saw Lady Liberty as their ships sailed into NY Harbor because coming here was a dream of theirs and it had come true. Is is so terribly wrong to ask a Latino who does not live here -- or does not live here legally -- to address himself to the same immigration laws and processes as any other immigrant? We have turned away Canadians we thought might have AIDS. Why is it so wrong to impose restrictions on Latinos for health or safety or even economic reasons?

    I think Latinos are growing more vitriolic in their rhetoric about immigration because they are desperate to get out of their own nations -- and who can blame them? I'm not certain what all foreign policy initiatives the US should adopt towards Latin American nations. Repealing the US drug laws seems like an obvious first step, but much more is clearly needed. I hardly know what is happening in Mexico (except that it is terrible) and have no idea what is happening in other nations...but there are people who do.

    We should be regarding Mexico as an essential ally whose well-being we will protect in the same way we view Israel as such. If we don't address this soon, Americans in the Southwest are golng to begin fleeing themselves...and where the hell is that going to end?

    Boycott Arizona? Why add to the suffering of Americans caught in the cross-fire? What have they done, apart from try and defend themselves?

    I just cannot agree with your call to action.
