"Government officials, whether elected or appointed, have a particular responsibility under international law not to advocate or engage in discrimination. In recent years, though, elected officials and candidates for office have made statements equating Islam with terrorism."

Government officials have a responsibility to insure that the laws of the land are enforced. If that appears to be discriminatory, well, just tough.

If you're here illegally, or your chosen religion has a reputation for violence, lack of basic human rights and endorsing terrorism, don't blame our government. Go someplace where you're more welcome.

Is this just another attempt to make something wrong right? It is wrong to be in this country illegally. Right! The Government's job is to protect it's citizens from abuse. It is not their job to turn a blind eye to the violence and corruption of those here illegally or those who advocate violence against America.

The only discrimination I currently witness is the discrimination against the tax paying law abiding citizenry of this nation - they, despite whatever their race, whatever their religion, whatever their income, where ever their family originally came from are being told to bankroll (subsidize) this molly coddle of the illegal aliens so they can ride the entitlement train and freebee express. Plus we have to listen to this PC rubbish that makes the tax paying law abiding citizenry out to be the bad guys.
Once the Muslims and illegal aliens (NOT undocumented immigrants) begin to show some respect to this nation and show the ability to work with us, rather than make demands, our opinions of them might change. If both groups continue to act as if this is their country and we must appease them then trouble will abound.
I'm willing to share this country will all law abiding, decent and respectfull people, don't come here making demands - that will get the door closed in your face quickly from me.

I don't care what the illegals or legals think I always pay attention to the fact they come here with this work harder and we can stay no I do not want no more of no one from another country here we are full go flock somewhere else go to Egypt they have a open law now sneak there and demand the people of their rights and citzenship issues. AND if americans don't work as hard as illegals so what that is a right we earned that's what made our nation great in the 90's when jobs for everyone was at it's peak keep our border, inlands, waters and air closed I am sick to death of illegals and legals it is to many of them yes I really don't care for none of them.
