There are three kinds of people in the United States of America. Citizens, legal residents, and illegal aliens. I have a problem with the third group.
This said, I have received a lot of flack over that position. In fact, one old man, the grandfather of a friend of mine, read my post about Mexico's plan for the American Southwest, and swore that if he saw me on the street and recognized me, he'd kick my racist ass. This gentleman is Mexican.
One of my sisters in law, my wife is Mexican as well, calls the illegals "my own people."
Everyone knows my position. Illegals are a serious problem, and are a part of a larger agenda. Agree or disagree with me, that is your perogative. Before you decide against a stronger fence along the border, however, remember this:
The problem at the border goes way beyond the Mexicans crossing into the country. My main drive for how I feel is not the illegal aliens. My main drive is what might be crossing over the border with them - - specifically, terrorists that have one motive in life - - to kill us.
Secure the borders, if not to stop illegal immigration, at least to stop another terrorist attack on American soil. I just wish Bush and crew agreed. The amnesty thing is such garbage.
