Immigration 2007: Congress’ failure to act did not end immigration debate – MSNBC

Though this article is somewhat unbiased it basically applauds the local efforts to punish undocumented migrants in many of our communities by calling immigration raids a “gain” for immigration reform. Though voters have shown they are not, in most areas, putting politicians in office simply for their vehement anti-“illegal” positions it seems that the trend of the day is finding people to demonize and scapegoat for problems that have nothing to do with them. This is most easily pointed out by the fact that nobody can offer a real solution or get to the hard facts of why we have so many undocumented migrants in this country. I guess it doesn’t matter why there here as long as we can make them go away, or at least leave or quaint little community; and don’t worry – they’re not really human beings they’re just “illegals.” Now when somebody says “illegal” without a noun to modify they’re most often speaking of a human being. Simply terrible.
