It seems to me that the operative word in the immigration discussion is ILLEGAL. Since our inception the United States has welcomed immigrants with open arms. We are truly a nation of immigrants. We are also a nation of laws so I am surprised at the position of those who would condone law breaking in the name of what they like to call social justice. A cynic might conclude that Democrats want amnesty because it means more votes and the opposite for Republicans. The US Catholic church wants amnesty because it means more members. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton need new constituencies as the African-American community grows in affluence. The labor unions need potential new members gullible enough to join. It is discouraging that these and all others supporting amnesty are willing to abandon the rule of law for their own gains. We are rapidly becoming a nation of laws, except for the ones I dont believe are correct. (Apr 27, 2010 | post #81)
Congrats to Mayor Conley and council for their foresight in expanding the water system. Now the door is open for Mitch and the UCDA to sell the benefits of locating more new businesses in the Airport Business Development Park (Mar 29, 2010 | post #1)
