Confuscious never said that the key to good government is to name things honestly. I doubt that you have read or studied any philosophers.
Danny IS an undocumented american.
the article states "I showed them photos of events where Danny's artwork had been distributed, posted on The Dream Is Now campaign's social media pages. I showed them my driver's license, and explained why he didn't yet have one. I didn't share any new information. But my citizenship and skin color made everything I was saying credible—even though Danny and I both spoke to the officers in English, using the same words, and were able to produce the same photos and anecdotal evidence....this doesn't bother you? do you know why this happened, police believing the white guy who said everything danny said, and that made it ok? that is just one aspect of racism, ask any black teen or black young adult if they have been in a similar situation.
You said "If you want to talk about "undocumented Americans" I know a young man whose parents brought him over from the Ukraine in the early 90s. Grew up here and did a tour in Iraq but owing to his parents mistake in filing some paperwork 20+ year ago, he's not a citizen. I never see anyone trying to fix those kinds of mistake and the "Dream Act" seem utterly indifferent to them... After reading this tidbit, i had to stop and find out if undocumented americans are allowed to join america's military and the answer is no. the undocumented immigrants can get a card to let them work in the country, and want obama to expand the definition of work to include serving in the military. i'm not sure how this ukranian young man without documents served in the military. did you make this up? according to your views that entire family deserves to be deported, in your eyes they are not undocumented americans but illegal immigrants, criminals. they broke the law by immigrating to america without papers and in 20 years have never applied for citizenship. i swear you make no sense at all.
"The Dream Act is about importing Democratic voters." Really?
The democrats did not invent jim crow. How are you connecting jim crow with immigrants? You know nothing of the history that caused jim crow. Jim crow had nothing to do with immigrants and you sully the memories of those who fought for civil rights.
Do you know the difference between immigration and emmigration?
Do you understand the bill of rights? You can't pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, so what is emmigration exclusion?
The Democrat philosophy is that " America is a hateful place where only the Democratic party protects you. Are you really going to say that democrats think America is a hateful place? So what are democrat children going to war for? Why would you want to defend a hateful place? This was a very stupid comment.
"The Dream Act is also racist a hell. You never see any Hispanics saying, "Hey, its not fair we get automatic citizenship just because we can walk to America. Lets say everyone, African, Asian, Indian etc that can hop a boat or plane can come here." Nope they pop an artery at the thought. Yeah, its all the great American dream until some other people of color start immigrating in numbers". Sorry, but this paragraph makes absolutely no sense. You really do not have a clue about what racism is.
"Not to mention the whole, "Jobs Americans are to lazy to do," is really just code for "jobs black people are to lazy to do." Are you saying that blacks are not american? Being a migrant worker is not an easy job. Working in the hot sun, doing back breaking work so you and your family can stuff your faces. Again you show an amazing lack of knowledge of history and politics.
" If Danny is to be rewarded for breaking our immigration laws, how can we punish anyone else?" How and what is Danny being rewarded for?
"Just open the borders to everyone who can stagger across. What's so special about Mexicans? Why not ship load after ship load of Chinese? They're hard working, don't eat much and there is apparently an infinite number of low skill, low paid jobs available here." They don't eat much, isn't that a bit stereotypical?
Then you go and blast the housing project bill. That too has nothing to do with immigration
I read the entire bill. It doesn't mention political parties at all.
Please explain what upper class democrats are?
" It traps everyone else in at the bottom of the income scale because there an infinate supply of cheap labor always flowing in to keep wages down. No matter how hardworking, illegal immigrants or their children will be forced to depend on the democrats for public assistance and vote robotically Democrat or starve." Where do you come up with these ideas?
Repubs have a big problem with comprehension of any article. To read and understand 20 pages of double spaced type is difficult for them. The last two plus pages are references. References back up your facts, and we know that repubs don't operate on facts and truth, you'd rather make things up and distort history and thump the christan bible to make yourselves feel good and righteous. You get your news from fox news, not from reading many articles on the situation, both sides of a story and different perspectives. You are vastly uneducated.
Your last paragraph shows how you feel about people with intelligence. you would prefer that we all be mediocre thinkers like you. face it, people with intelligence scare the hell out of repubs because repubs only live in the here and now, cannot think outside the box, are not well read, have little minds and are extremely racist from lack of or poor education.
Last of all, repubs blame everything under the sun. If Danny's predicament is a fault, it's because of uneducated, small minded, racist people like you in our government.
