You speak like you really don't know anything about conservatives. We celebrate those immigrants who come here to build a life and contribute to the country in positive ways. Those who come illegally and then expect to take resources for which they have not contributed are the source of our concern.

Thanks...Red Spot, I understand your handle...I hail from Illinois where county electoral maps show the real story...almost the entire state is RED except for those dang urban areas (as Chicago goes...). I cuss and grumble every election, but I go out and vote anyway!!!!!

Maybe you should try restating this. The libs certainly aren't going to understand it the way it's written. It makes too much sense and is WAY too clear.

Jim Diep escaped from Vietnam when he was 11 years old. One of his brothers gave him this guidance: “If they ask you where you want to go, tell them America.”

From Townhall Magazine's April feature, "Escape to America," by Kathy Jessup:

Heavy nets infused with the stench of salt and fish concealed the 11-year-old boy hidden in the bottom of a rowboat as it pushed silently away from the dark South Vietnamese shore.
