It is odd to me that some people, no matter how many times they are told, just cannot get it through their heads that conservatives, including Republicans, are pro legal immigration.
I have never heard a single one of my conservative friends say anything else. They feel many people who come here illegally are often unskilled, needy and a burden to our social safety nets. Can you say Arizona?
They feel that illegals often do not always share American values and are here to take advantage of our easy-to-circumvent laws. They do know that the legal immigration system that they support is set up to help America as well as the immigrants coming here legally. The only reason to say anything else is for political gain and to divide this country. I say shame on those people.
It might help if we did not use the phrase “illegal immigrants,” as that’s an oxymoron when it is “breaking and entering immigration.”
In fairness to my liberal friends, I should point out many, if not most, of them also want legal immigration.
An old Chinese proverb says, “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
