    Attack because that's what it was, and I already told you, if you want to call me a racist, fine, call me a racist, you want to call me a republican, a conservative, whatever, fine, call me what you want. The mere fact that you called me a racist or a republican or a conservative, doesn't nullify anything I have written, and it doesn't make you right and makw me wrong, it just gives you something convenient to write when you can't think of anything more intelligent.

    I will make this my last post in this diary and take from your comment that what you consider 'bullshit immigration law' is the fact that 'it creates a class of people who cannot legally work in this country'.

    In other words, if somebody enters the country illegally, the fact that the U.S. doesn't immediately grant them legal status followed by citizenship is 'bullshit immigration law' -- to which I can only respond to by writing -- 'ummmm okay'.

      you are saying that immigration laws should not be written based on reality.

      The current immigration laws create a class of people who cannot legally work in this country, but who are working in this country anyway.  Your argument is, essentially, "lalala I'm not listening but they're ILLEGAL," which is basically saying that you do not want our immigration laws to be written based on reality but instead based on -- what is it -- the fact that you don't like people who want to work in this country but have the misfortune of being born in another country?

      Granting some form of legal status to people who are already living and working in this country is called "acknowledging reality."  It is also called "making labor and wage laws enforceable."
