I'm not saying that something shouldn't be done about illegal immigrants who continue to break laws once here, only that a a good percentage of
illegals come here with the purest of intentions. Generally speaking, we can't blame illegals for wanting to be here, even if they have to break the
law to get here. Instead, we should be focussing on the businesses who hire them in the first place. By allowing this debate to stay focussed on the
ilegal immigrants themselves, we aren't really going to get anywhere because they will continue to do whatever it takes to put food in the mouths of
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm the biggest supporter of ridding this country of illegals, irregardless of their intentions because putting food in my
own family's mouth is more important to me, but I just think this debate is going in the wrong direction by focussing on the illegals themselves
instead of the root of the problem, which is the employers who entice them to come.
If we don't focus on the business side of this equation, they will continue to hire and as long as they are continuing to hire illegals, these
illegals will do whatever it takes to get here and our problem will continue. To me, this nun's death is on the shoulders of those corporations
hiring illegals, as opposed to the whole of the illegal immigrant population.
