Let's say I break into your house...

(This came from an e-mail forward)

A lady wrote the best letter in the Editorials in ages!! It explains
things better than all the baloney you hear on TV. Can you relate?

Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country
protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of
illegal immigration. Certain people are angry that the US might protect
its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and,
once here, to stay indefinitely. Let me see if I correctly understand
the thinking behind these protests.

Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me
in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, "I've made all the

can communicate with me.

Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?! Only in America....if you
agree, pass it on (in English). Share it if you see the value of it as
a good smile. If not blow it off along with your future Social Security
