Having lived in Arizona for 25 years, I've seen a lot. There are many 'angles' to the whole debate.
One statement I've heard is that we do not have an illegal immigrant problem, we have an illegal employer problem.
I've seen where a cleaning contractor calls INS on payday in order to skip out on paying the workers.
I've seen an illegal that has been deported multiple times shoot a cop in cold blood.
I've seen a law enforcement agency commit blatant racial profiling.
There are no absolutes in this debate. Anyone that only looks for a 'back and white' take on the issue does a severe disservice to the issue, all parties involved, and themselves.
I sometimes wonder whether those who look at issues with a 'binary' mindset are intellectually lazy, or have been frightened or manipulated into complacency.
Or is it that only simple minds see simple solutions.
Anyway, milfy and jhawk, you really need to stop watching Faux News. You'll find yourself hanging out on the Free Republic, listening to Limbaugh and Hannity, and trying to score Meth or Oxy at Denny's until you get busted.
