The argument that *we* (those whose ancestors came over on a boat) are all "anchor babies" is emotionally flawed. Rather then think, you decide that
history is not about an aggregate of past events. Any argument stating that "you're an anchor baby" is lost once you bring past events into play.
Wars with the Indians.
Wars with the Mexicans.
Wars in the Caribbean.
Claiming of territories.
Defeat comes with a price.
None of the people who lost the wars were happy about it, but they must accept it. It is how the past has defined the present and future. The original
poster must forget that boundaries have been formed and even Mexico knows where that boundary is, as international treaties stipulate.
This is NOT just happening in the United States. People in UK, France, Germany are being bombarded by people entering their country and taking
advantage of their socialized systems. These people are not only from Eastern European countries, but Middle Eastern and Asian countries also. With so
many of these foreigners entering these countries, a shift occurs, creating "compassionate" policymakers and thinkers.
Compassion *is* the problem and existing laws are not being enforced to a certain extent. In some cases it is, but most of the time it isn't. Just
recently, Schwarzenegger has said he would like to send the "illegal" prison members back to Mexico. What's the reaction of the "compassionate"
crowd? Thinking is lost once people try to play on your emotions. It's the same with many other arguments:
What about the children?
Health care is a right because people are sick.
Those people have $40k in debt and we need to stop the bank.
Just insert any red herring here.
Policymakers are meant to be thinkers, not emotional. Emotional politics creates entitlements and votes and that is why many take that route.
Don't be dumb any longer. Start thinking over your emotions.
