>But I damn well am going to oppose anything I believe will harm this country, whether its proposed by a Democrat or a Republican.

To my eyes, by far,
most immigrants are decent
and play by the rules.

Immigrants that don't
play by the rules seem to be
a minority.

It is troubling that
conservatives seem to see
immigration as

defined by the small
(comparatively) number
of the illegals,

rather than all the
law abiding immigrants.
None of us accept

liberals when they
define gun control built on
criminals rather

than law abiding
gun owners. We should judge by
the good, not the bad.

Sorry, there are no law-abiding illegal aliens.

You are confusing anti-illegal immigration with anti-immigration. I am not opposed to immigration; I am opposed to ILLEGAL immigration.

As for "judging by the good, not the bad," I'm afraid we'd have no laws at all in that case. No need for them.

You mean most *illegal* immigrants play by the rules? Is this what you mean? Surely I'm misunderstanding.
