Re: loadstar, -- It is INSANE that ignorant, poor Hispanics want to embrace America! -- I don't understand your sentence, your grammar not being up to par (maybe those Amerikan Pulbic Skools Dat Teech To Reed an Writ muddled your brain). Do you mean that it is insane for "ignorant, poor" Hispanics to embrace America, or that the notion that they want to embrace America is insane? -- Assimilation is NOT the goal...reconquest is! -- If there is one true thing in life, is this: Even paranoids have enemies!

-- In order to have any immigration policy serve any purpose, the border must first be secured. -- The securing of the border will depend entirely on the cost of such enforcement compared to the perceived benefit that it may bring. But remember one thing: The reason people risk corssing the border is because immigration laws have made it exremely onerous to even try legal immigration, the US government more or less treating those that request a visa like invaders from another planet. When you RESTRICT the supply of something, you get a BLACK MARKET. This is economics. I don't understand why you want to look at this issue as a POLITICAL issue instead of an ECONOMIC issue as you should.

-- Crossing the border from Mexico is by no means the only way such women unilaterally confer American citizenship on their children. -- This is one of the biggest of myths perpetuated by conservatives, Mr. Sowell. I am surprised that you would continue to peddle this myth. While it is true that Latin American mothers cross the border to have their children in the US, those women do not become American Citizens any time soon nor maybe ever. The reason is because the child must be 21 years old before he or she can request to have his or her parents brought into the US, and that only with a Green Card. So that's a LONG TERM investment if there was ever one. So much for "anchoring" oneself to the US with children!

Re: loadster, -- Oh, and I am a Ronald Reagan small guvment conservative all the way.-- I don't think you're being honest, load. -- What was Reagan's deepest regret per his former Chief Of Staff baker? -- Actually, his biggest regret - in his own words - was raising taxes after Tip O'Neall had promised him that he would work with him to lower spending. Amnesty did not cause the problems you say caused, as immigration did not explode until the housing bubble of 1990-2007, when many people were traveling to the US to work. And it wasn't until the US made it more onerous to obtain valid visas that illegal immigration really took off.

Re: loadstar, -- Hey, are you stealing quotes from Old Mexican Rancid Taco?! -- I see that you still keep it classy. I couldn't get in with my normal nick because of some error with I.E. -- I am all for them--AS LONG AS they obey basic laws -- What a way to spin things - "basic" laws. The ONLY basic laws are those that protect our life, liberty and property, not those that purport to limit people's desire to engage in free and voluntary trade. You may LOVE the state, loadstar, but that does not mean you have license to spread lies and misinformation about these issues.

Re: loadstar, the Progressive troll, -- The biggest winners from immigration are owners of businesses that employ a lot of immigrant labor and other users of immigrant labor. -- So the problem is giving any advantage to business owners because they happen to be... what? Martians? The above is nothing more than an argument based on an appeal to envy. Why, those businesspeople are not being patriotic! (As if patriotism trumped economic law or made us all richer) Many Townhallers here have proven to be extraordinarily clueless about economic matters but YOU, loadstar, take the cake. You can't be THAT clueless, therefore you MUST be a Progressive troll. Agitator, at least, does not hide his credentials.
Re: MisterD.NY, -- There is no possible scenario that allows the federal government to suddenly shed its unconstitutional powers without causing unrest and violence here and around the world. -- Do you really think that what keeps people from killing each other is the TSA, or the Department of the Interior, or the NSA, or the Department of Homeland Security, or the FAA, or the FDA, or the EPA, or the IRS, or the GSA, or.... you catch my drift?
Re: Rich Grise, -- What if there's some 15-year old girl that's been getting raped by her mother's boyfriend -- If the product of that violation is so offensive and outrageous for your sensibilities, why not kill all products of violations? There are plenty to go around. -- If a woman's body AND ITS CONTENTS aren't her own property --- A woman's body is her property, but a fetus is an entirely different body. The analogy is that my house is my property but that does not make the child's body inside it mine to do my will. The fetus should not pay for the sins of the father. Besides, freedom to choose =/= abortion.
-- While libertarians have been tamping down on the idea that Paul Ryan is even a small win for the limited-government crowd, Kenney thinks it's a step in the right direction. -- This despite the fact that Ryan's record does not show him to be a "limited government" advocate by even the most liberal interpretation of the concept. Nor is he a "fiscal conservative," as his budget shows, which only slows down the GROWTH but makes no real cuts. Ron Paul mentioned to Neil Cavuto on Tuesday that the reason Ryan is seen as some sort of "libertarian" budget-slasher is because the Democrats, in their infinite stupidity, exaggerated his fiscal "conservatism" and made him more attractive to conservatives in the GOP.
