Uh, if she came here illegally that means she broke the law. That makes her a criminal. And how is rallying going to show that she isn't a criminal?
"I want my children to know their mother is not a criminal," said the nanny who told the AP she came here illegally in 1986 from Mexico. "I want them to be as strong I am. This shows our strength."
Here's another one:
"We are the backbone of what America is, legal or illegal, it doesn't matter,"Why doesn't it matter? It's like someone saying "I killed the guy, but it doesn't matter, I work in construction!"
Then of course you have the geniuses on the other side:
"You should send all of the 13 million aliens home, then you take all of the welfare recipients who are taking a free check and make them do those jobs," said Jack Culberson, a retired Army colonel who attended the Pensacola rally. "It's as simple as that."
Yep, sounds pretty simple. Let's just round up 13 million people. That should be easy, right?
But finally some sanity:
"We understand the importance, contribution immigrants have made to the economy and the industry of this great nation," said retired Col. Albert F. Rodriguez, a veteran of World War II and the Vietnam War.
"But the difference is that we and millions of others like us did it legally. We're all here today to tell all those illegal protesters, 'You do not speak for me.' "
Finally some sanity.
