The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel could only write this editorial…

July 27th, 2008

implying that illegal immigrants are less likely to commit a crime than an actual citizen, cialis canada there because they’re willing to ignore the fact that, by definition, every illegal immigrant is already a criminal.

    It has been something of a broken record among the anti-immigration crowd: Illegal immigrants are running amok, committing crimes, getting arrested and jamming our prisons.

    The first sentence was fairly clear, I thought, on the intent of the editorial, my friend.

    What a crock! I don’t see any verifiable proof of these supposed statistics, nor do I believe them for a NY minute.

    Consider this: We have a judicial system that all too often let’s them off on their many crimes with either a slap on the wrist or a total dismissal – I mean, heaven forbid they might be called a racist.

    I say risk it.

    They set up their straw man, Tim, I set up mine. ;)

    Around here a high proportion of the violent criminals turn out to be illegals.

    Why is it so hard for some to understand that it is possible to be Pro-Immigrant AND anti illegal immigrant?

    I love immigrants – my relatives were immigrants. But I believe it necessary to sign the guest book on the way in, learn English, assimilate, and get a 1-way ticket back from whence they came if criminal activities are conducted while they are awaiting citizenship.
