And then, around 200 kids have to audacity to take to the streets demanding respect.

Evidently, they’ve forgotten the images of thousands of pro-illegals marching through American streets waving Mexican flags.

Perhaps they haven’t seen the news reports about the damage done to Santa Cruz businesses by stampeding, crazed pro-illegal protesters, or the people being hauled off to jail for breaking the law during demonstrations, or the pictures of riot police in communities around the country attempting to keep the peace.

You want respect?

Start with recognizing that there are millions of Americans who are fed up with rampant illegal immigration.

You want respect?

Appreciate how Arizona lawmakers are listening to their constituents and doing what they can to pick up the pieces of a broken, failed, federal system that sees millions pour across our borders and fails to allow anything to be done about them once they are here.

You want respect?

Recognize once and for all that illegal immigration is an explosive, powerful issue that is uniting Americans who will go to the polls and cast out wimpy politicians who don’t have the guts to defend the sovereignty of the United States of America.

Respect? The people supporting illegals don’t know the meaning of the word.

I’m so glad to hear that the families of the boys who wore the American flag tee-shirts to school have no intention of apologizing. They have nothing to apologize for.

The apology needs to start coming from the lawless, reckless, irresponsible voices in our country who are blindly defending illegal immigration and attacking any and all who dare to stand up for the rule of law.

But don’t hold your breath.

These angry activists have no intention of backing down. And their protests will become louder and angrier as their side faces the reality of the situation, as they get closer to realizing the truth -- that it is wrong to defend the indefensible.

Our only hope is with the elected officials and the judges who decide these things. And if politicians don’t get it right, we’ll find the ones who will.

That’s the American way.
