In my opinion, Latino's should be allowed to stay in this country and work. The people that would mostly be hurt are the children of the immigrants. What I think that congress is afraid to say is that they want to keep Latino's here freely and only gear the laws toward nations linked to terrorism. Sometimes I just wish that people would say what they mean and forget about the politics of it all, but I understand their need to keep their prestige and position.

Itís basically an every man/woman for themselves kind of world. Mostly everyone is selfish or if they do decide on a whim to help their fellow man they do it and make sure that others are aware of it. It is wonderful the way everyone did rally around the Katrina victims. Many churches organized trips to help in rebuilding and feeding the New Orleans residents and workers. Many of the workers that are helping to rebuild this great city are Latino's. Everyone plays a part in this rebuild. If you brought out your mad side when FEMA and the government took so long to get into action, then you helped. It is crucial for us as Americans with rights to enforce those rights with our voices.

When you lay your head down at night think about those children of the immigrants and that feeling in your stomach you get around lunch time. Try going without lunch. See how it feels to these children everyday that their parents are not working. See how long you can stand it. We should support legislation that keeps children safe and happy, and that keeps their parents with money in their pockets to support them.

I have to agree with you. There is a lot of worry coming from many sides. Certainly the children of immigrants, who have long since assimilated to the American culture, must be considered. It may also affect those who are actually waiting for green cards and those who wish to come to this country legally. It would affect our employers who would need verification from the rest of us to prove that we're citizens. It would also affect the minimum wage itself, and certainly how the government would handle its border control.

There were times in the past when immigration laws were created strictly to prohibit certain races from entering the country (ie when it happened to certain Asian races).

This is a complex problem that needs to be addressed. In my opinion, this was a problem that was growing over the past decades and they are suddenly going to "fix it" by making them criminals. It just doesn't seem right to handle it this way.

You are right it would affect not effect. lol I am the grammer queen. :). The government also needs to lower the price that immigrants have to pay to go the legal way. It cost $800.00 just to begin the process to get a workers Visa. Immigrants are some of the most abitious people that I have ever met, but when they come here they are not rich, how can they afford to pay that much and why is the price even that high?

.___fect up

I'm glad you caught the affect/effect thing. Little stuff like that can reduce the effectiveness of your article. It's the effect of the affect/effect effect.

I hope I haven't fect it up.

p.s.- I somewhat disagree but I may post on this subject myself.

I'm thinking 'whom' here but I'm not so good with this one. I usually go with my ear here 'irregardless' of any rule.
