. We can have no '50-50' allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.
This bothers me greatly...how as a society do we allow people to flaunt our laws? Any other country is expected to uphold their border as a sovereign right, but we as Americans are expected to allow illegals to cross our borders, and flaunt their illegal status and have no repercussion.
I am a student of history and I like to study the Roman empire, the Roman had immigration issues with the Huns for a hundred years coming over the frontier. I see signs in both English and spanish, I understand businesses doing this, I understand it is smart because they buy stuff also. I do have a big problem with government doing this however; English is the language of America and it is the glue that holds us together as a society. Now I see us fracturing along ethnic lines, the glue that holds us together is fading. We have immigrants that come over here having more pride in their former land than as Americans. They use our systems against us, our sense of fair play. I have no problem with LEGAL immigration, they come here to make a better life and become part of the American experience. Now we have people that come over here to abuse our laws and take advantage of America.
I got this off yahoo news
About 50 students walked out of class at Douglas County High School to protest Georgia's new law cracking down on illegal immigration and a policy that bars illegal immigrant students from the most competitive state colleges and universities.
The students — a mix of illegal immigrants and others who support them — walked out around 2 p.m. Wednesday, many carrying signs and chanting.
They said they want to raise awareness of the situation of illegal immigrants who have grown up in the U.S. after their parents brought them here as young children.
The school's principal, who watched the protest from a short distance away, declined to discuss any disciplinary action that might be taken against the students.
A similar protest was held last week at Pebblebrook High School in Mableton.
