young man. And his answers to the questions were straight forward and not filled with politico-speak - quite refreshing.

The only thing wrong with our immigration system is our elected officials will not enforce it and prosecute. Why do Mexicans always think our laws do not apply to them but every other nationality? Dumb America even prints our own ballot in their langauage and schools hire teachers to speak in THEIR language. Why did Gilliland ask if they were legal or illegals which a majority of them in Estes are?

An intelligent sounding young man. Is he an illegal (excuse me the proper term is undocumented) immigrant or is he legal? I think we should know then we can decide if his answers have merit.

Would you be questioning his immigration status if he was Irish, Italian of African American? I'll stand with Reason alone and consider his words without prejudice. And assign merit thus.

Isn't the norm nowadays to question immigration status of Mexicans who were not born in this country? And what the hell is an African-American? Where I come from you're one or the other or a Negro or a Caucasian. I suppose you're one of the bleeding hearts who wants to make them all legal with a swipe of the pen.

Why is it normal to question immigration status? We suspect you of something we disagree with, and go into your house without warrant.Then again the police can't(or shouldn't) because it's unconstitutional. Probably good reason for the amendment, and rises above labeling and false suspicion.
You ask stupid questions so we doubt you.Then again,we can't take action against you because the constitution is real and enforced,yet, still up for future interpretation.Why wouldn't I interpret my neighbors words as well and of merit , no matter what their social status. The only real choice I have is to rise above my sense of prejudice and cognitive bias.

You ask questions, why don't you give us the answers? Your first question I have absolutely no idea. Your second question, Why would you interpret your neighbors words as well and of merit, if you had a suspicion. Do you just take everything for granted and assume this is a perfect world? Wake up.

Perfect? Far from it, but, why subject my life to false appearances when I may be patient and wait for a better view.Why do you believe your own flawed fundamental ruling faculty, fall back onto assuming, magnifying and dubious reasoning then ask me to wake up? you are as Socrates states ,asleep; prove me wrong thru literal argument rather than your dissertation laced with folly.

So you're saying that your cerebral images defy justification of your imbalanced views and you are tipping the scales in a somewhat lopsided erroneous assertion of facts and you stand by your refusal to weigh your imbalances. Look, let's stop kidding each other. I think we both have valid points and could continue this beyond comprehension. I stand by my views and I know you stand by yours. This is what makes the world challenging. I sign off and hope you have a great day.
