Well, I understand your point. If she came here legally and is a U.S. Citizen, she’s not that much different than you and I, except that her birth loyalty is to another nation. Thus she may be very sympathetic to the plight of people who wish to make excuses for breaking our laws and abusing our citizens.
I actually have less sympathy for those who enable law breaking as a citizen, than I do the actual illegal immigrants. And I don’t have much patience with that at all.
Thank you for the mention. It is strange to think of Mexican citizens like the one you mention, but there are actually many of them.
If she spoke English I would be a lot more inclined to accept her as one of our own. If I went to Mexico, it wouldn’t be six months before I would be fluent in Spanish and speak like a native. IMO, that would be the respectful thing to do.
By definition those who came here illegally have already broken a law. Even if they are performing useful, low paid jobs, I still am against amnesty. They should go back and wait in line just like millions from several countries around the world are doing.
Laws can not be obeyed selectively. That is a slippery slope to anarchy.
I concur with you that once one acquires American citizenship, one must be loyal to this country and put it ahead of country of origin.
