OK First off, for the full story go here.
I am in SHOCK that this is even a debate. Someone comes to this country ILLEGALLY and then complains when they are arrested and deported. I absolutely cannot believe there are groups who are opposing this.
The quote which makes me the most furious is this one:
"This unfortunately reminds me of when Hitler began rounding up the Jews for no reason and locking them up," Democratic Party activist Carla Vela said. "Now they're coming for the Latinos, who will they come for next?"
Here is who I think they should go after next... MORE CRIMINALS! To compare the arrest of criminals to the capture and extermination of millions of Jews who WERE NOT CRIMINALS but VICTIMS is just sick.
It IS NOT racism to arrest criminals. It is racism to cry that you are being persecuted because of your skin color when all that is happening is the law is being applied to you.
If I went to Mexico and worked illegally (choose your method), would it be fair for me to then scream I was being persecuted because I was white?
OK, back to sarcasm and inane rabmlings. I feel better now.
