This is apples and oranges folks!
I am not against immigrants. I am against all people who break the law. No human is illegal, unless they do something illegal.
But riddle me this...have you noticed people are are conveniently leaving off the "illegal" part now. I see signs a-waving, t-shirts, and shout-outs about "immigration", but "Illegal" is never mentioned in conjunction with it.
I am against "illegal immigration" and any other illegal activity - don't lump me into the wrong category by default that all people against illegal immigration are against immigration. Not even the same. It's like answering your door. Somebody knocks or rings the doorbell, you peak to see who it is before you answer. You want to know who you're letting in your house. It's not rude. It's normal, right?!
And yes, my family was once immigrants.
The immigration process is different now. So is EVERYTHING else. I bet my ancestors didn't have to fill out a 10 page form (plus fingerprint) to visit their child during school lunch breaks.
This is the 21st century- all things have changed...and so has the process for immigration. You can't pick and choose your progress. When one thing changes, many others do too. Rules and regulations are established in every aspect of our lives, more so than decades ago, and centuries ago.
If you think that's harsh, try cutting down a cactus in Arizona. You could be sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Everybody needs to express themselves in some form- mine happens to be written form...with an opinion. Strong opinions can be useful to others. Those who were undecided or ambivalent can just adopt your stance or gain an ability to formulate their own. Those who disagree can solidify, defend, and empower their stance.
