My Take on the Immigration Rallies
A spokesman for the group that organized today’s protests rallies is expecting “tens of millions” of marchers today calling for immediate legalization of ALL immigrant that are currently in the our country. I have very mixed feelings on this subject. I was watching the news last night and was puzzled as people that were planning to take part in today’s demonstrations, stocked up on food, gas, and other needed supplies. Doesn’t this kind of defeat the purpose of a boycott? I do agree that our immigration policy needs an overhaul. If it wasn’t so difficult to become a citizen, we wouldn’t have the problems with illegal immigration. I believe that we are a nation of immigrants, so we need to embrace immigrants not condemn them. We also need to secure our borders, and enforce the laws that are currently in our books.
What are your feelings on this issue?
