This whole Arizona thing must eventually come out to be a blessing.

It just has got to. I don't know if I am overly emotional right now but this whole division of people who are for or against immigration is just breaking my heart. What I don't understand is that 99 percent of all Americans are born from immigrants. Even if it was a few hundred years ago there are immigrants in your family. Whether you are brown or pale truth is, unless you are not 100% pure native american your family at some point immigrated to the US.

Most people have no idea how hard it is to come to the US. I was on the train the other day, and a lady was chatting away and somehow the issue of Immigration came up. She was saying how her mother was a deputy in Washington county, Oregon and that it is really sad how if they pick up someone for a minor offense and they are hispanic AND alot of people just never got around to doing their paperwork and even if they have 5 kids and have been here 27 years, even if they don't have any famiily in Mexico they are still deported.

I appreciated her caring tone, but she made it sound like that same old story.... people say, get at the back of the line don't sneak in. WHAT FRIGGIN LINE? for mexicans it is vitually impossible to immigrate legally. and up until about 2008 there were plenty of jobs for everyone.... anyway... that's wants been bouncing around in my brain.
