Debating The Immigrant March
April 11th, 2006

The immigration debate has brought people out into the streets in a way that has not been seen since the anti-war protests and civil rights marches of the `60s and `70s, writes
El Diario, which labels yesterdays immigrant demonstration a loud and powerful call for fair and just immigration reform. The Daily News says the outpouring should give pause to those politicians who have taken the hardest anti-immigrant line. No, illegal immigrants cannot voteBut America’s Hispanic citizenry is a growing and engaged segment of the electorate. Post columnist John Podhoretz argues just the opposite, saying the massive demonstrations are a mistake politically: Whatever illegal aliens are – and I think they are, on balance, a positive presence – they are still in violation of the laws of the United States. The more people demonstrate on their behalf, the more the illegality of their actions is highlighted.

    The days of immigrants wanting to learn our language and get a job are over. They come here to sponge our benefits. The percentage of illegals who actually come here to work is seriously overshadowed by the ones who are sucking up our tax dollars with welfare, medical and housing costs. Have you seen washington Heights? It looks like a third world country.
    They have no incentive to learn our language because they have created their homes and villages right here in America.
