Immigration & Racism....


In recent days, there have been protests over a law (Which didn't pass. Read about it here: http://www.infowars.com/articles/immigration/gop_leaders_drop_felony_for_immigrants.htm ) that would've basically made anyone who's an illegal immigrant a FELON.

Now my thing is this: Do I think that Illegal Immigrants should be put in the same category as Arson, Murder, and Rape? (Read about the definition of felony here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felony)


Now, do I think that they should get a "free pass" and granted "instant rights" like other American citizens?


I know what you're gonna say: Damn Ken, WHY?

Well, maybe because I look at it like this: Anyone that comes into this country, no matter who they are or where they come from, should do it through the proper channels. If you need Amnesty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amnesty), then go about it the right way. If you need to come here for a better life, then go through the proper channels so you can be properly served.

Also, there's an undercurrent of racism, ON BOTH SIDES.

Basically, this is a law against Mexicans, and other Latinos. America is becoming more "BROWN," and that makes some people real nervous. You also have a development where racist KKK-like Mexican groups are using this to stir up support for their various organizations and causes.

I can easily see this becoming a test for the new "Anti-Terrorism" laws that are now in place. I wouldn't be surprised if this leads to camps, like the ones that Japanese citizens in Cali went through during WW II. Read more about that here: http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/march2006/300306raceriots.htm

The measure was defeated for now, but a up surge of anti-immigration sentiment has surfaced, with people down at the Border States, like Texas, burning Mexico's flag.

This does not bode well for America...
