My son is a senior at USC and I had a long discussion with him about Illegal Immigration. He sat quietly and listened and when I was done he said "dad although I agrees with all that you have said, immigration is a big problem in our country but there is a big statue in the middle of a harbor that represent the entry to our country and in her arms is plaque that says. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..." I for once in my life was speechless. :)eh:):)eh:):)eh:)

Our country's problem to date is Illegal immigration but we have a sign on our front door that doesn't specify. How do argue that one.

Coming to America and assimilating into the country as a true citizen is entirely different than coming in under the radar, fraudulently using the system, and sending the earnings back to the home country where they intend to one day return.

It isn't any different than sneaking into your neighbors garage and stealing half his cold beer each week.....;)

And it was given at a time when America NEEDED more people. Besides, as stated, it's a legal issue. The words emblazoned at the SOL aren't the law.

It was not me.......:D:D:D


It's like the Live, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness......Pursuit does not mean you will obtain it but you can pursue it......Hence all the liberal pet projects like gay marriage. Pursuit is not a guantee of happiness just that you can work toward it.

pur·suit
Pronunciation: \pər-ˈsüt, -ˈsyüt\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French pursute, from pursure
Date: 14th century

1 : the act of pursuing
2 : an activity that one engages in as a vocation, profession, or avocation : occupation synonyms see work

Besides you know Tex has Lonestar or Pabst in his fridge!:)devil
:))eek:)):))eek:))

I'm a micro brew man.......:D

Lonestar has been replaced by Shiner Bock as the Texas "go to" brew. I don't honestly believe I've ever saw Pabst sold in TX?????

You will find a couple Abita types in the old fridge on occasion. Brewed on the north shore in Abita Springs, LA .;)

Easily..... just tell him the French gave us the statue and they knew that in some-point in time common since would go out the window and the meaning would be interpreted in such away that the United States would get screwed by it.

Ask him if you have a door mat that reads " Welcome" does that mean everyone walking down the street can barge into your house?

Does the plaque mean that we should take people with illnesses of all kinds or should we screen those who are coming to our country?

You need to tell him it was never meant to be interpreted that we didn't care who came here it has only been in the past few decades that people have become so intellectually lazy that they refuse to distinguish between legal and illegal immigration and you would hope that someone who was smart enough to get into USC could recognize the difference....... And if not we are Doomed as a Nation. :)bulb

Good advise:
Ya he understands that. But with the Liberal teachers and professors at his school and most schools for that matter, they don't teach both sides only the lib, or the politically correct side. Sad
