    This was sent to my homepage. We Do Not Hate.
    American Citizens of All Ethnicities First
    I am a Democrat and this is why I bother.

    Please Read Below,

    “I stumbled on this blog by way of a comment on Boston.com . My observation is this: Directing your hatred and frustations towards a certain group of people is easy to do, looking in the the mirror and admitting that the problem lies within is much harder. Is illegal immigration an issue? Yes indeed. Is it worth the time and effort of one individual from Revere MA who is in the construction industry, an industry that exploits illegals everyday, to blog about it? No. You are fighting a losing battle, and you are a very small player in a field of giants. Amnesty will pass and the country will be better off. Then you'll probably wish you hadn't spent hours blogging about it. AMERICA IS A COUNTRY BUILT BY IMMIGRANTS, MANY OF THE IRISH & ITALIAN WHO IMMIGRATED HERE IN THE EARLY 1900'S WERE ILLEGAL. THEY BECAME AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE NATION'S WELL BEING. This blog is full of hypocrites! NEWSFLASH: There are illegal immigrants who are fighting US wars abroad for the promise of a Green Card, they fight for America! TOO MANY HYPOCRITES ON THIS BLOG! Stop watching FoxNews, stop drinking the KoolAid!”

    I feel really sorry for posters like SW2SILVER.

    The anger and frustration this issue makes him feel are simply beyond description. Illegal immigration seems to consume him like a cancer. Anyone who has already read at least one of his posts will attest to what I'm saying.

    The guy makes Angelhair and granny sound like staunch supporters of illegal immigration.

    It's really sad to see a fellow human being wasting his life in so much bitterness, sadness, anger and frustration.

    Why bother? Why care?

    Ask California and their billions spent on illegal aliens in the Hospitals and other social programs.

    As for Amnesty it does not help. Reagan made that mistake in the 80's and what did it get us? An even larger number of illegals inside the Country demanding amnesty.

    Neither major party cares and that is a shame and a disgrace. It costs this Country BILLIONS of wasted dollars on illegals every year. Dollars we do not have and can not afford.

    Enforce the laws and kick the illegals out, fine the shit out of Companies and Corporations that hire illegals.

    You want to be an American? Come to the Country legally. A hell of a lot of the current illegals have no desire to be Americans anyway.

    If I had it in my power to do one single constructive thing for America it would be to have all of the illegal aliens deported.

    You do realize that I am the one alone in Revere fighting against illegal immigration and the Quote was one who was attacking the fight.

    See my home page. How are you fighting the illegals?

    There are no illegals fighting wars for us. You have to be legal to join the military. You don't have to be a citizen however. You don't get promised a Green Card for fighting. You are promised full citizenship.

    Learn the difference.

    Immigrants = One Subject.

    Illegal Aliens = Another Subject Entirely.








    You cannot mix the two.

    Why not?

    As you can see below the definition of immigration/immigrant do not encompass their legal status:

    Imigration into a place (especially migration to a country of which you are not a native in order to settle there)

    immigrate - To move into another country to stay there permanently
    en.wiktionary.org/wiki/immigrate

    The act of immigrating; the passing or coming into a country for the purpose of permanent residence
    en.wiktionary.org/wiki/immigration

    immigrant - a person who comes to a country where they were not born in order to settle there
    wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

    immigrant - A person who comes to a country to permanently settle from another country; A plant or animal that establishes itself in an area where it ...
    en.wiktionary.org/wiki/immigrant

    immigrate - introduce or send as immigrants; "Britain immigrated many colonists to America"
    immigrate - come into a new country and change residency; "Many people immigrated at the beginning of the 20th century"

    In other words:

    Both legal and illegal foreign born residents/citizens of America can be called immigrants.

    No problem at all.
