The word "discriminate" is not a bad word. People discriminate all the time about all sorts of things. It is the cognitive and sensory capacity or ability to see fine distinctions and perceive differences between objects, subjects, concepts, and patterns.
What's that? We use our senses to perceive things. And yes, we have a multitude of senses.
In addition to our five senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch, we also have other senses which include that of our ability to discern temperature, keep our balance, feel pain, acceleration, and of course reason.
It is our ability to reason that enables our sense of right and wrong, and good and bad, to function. We discriminate when we recognize a distinction and differentiate.
Why? Well we have an Immigration Process for those want to want to become American Citizens. They are not breaking the law, instead they are doing what is legal. On the other hand Illegal Aliens are Law Breakers.
They are Criminals.
Being here illegally is a "Criminal Justice" problem, not an "Immigration" problem. Obama fails to distinguish the difference between Legal and Illegal.
My great-grandparents, and one of my grandfathers, were all Legal Immigrants.
I've worked with many people who were both Legal Immigrants and Illegal Aliens. Many, if not all, are great friends still to this day.
The problems with Illegal Aliens are pretty simple really.
My suggestion to fix the first problem is to fix it by changing the Laws to reflect a need for a common sense approach to the problem of this hidden society of Illegals. Fix the Immigration Laws to allow people to be here to work, and then allow them to either go home or establish a probationary period of say 5 years so that they can good record for themselves.
Once it has been established that they have been good candidates for citizenship, then have some sort of program in place to enable them to join us as good American.
"Done everything that was asked"? Who's he kidding!
May 10th was Obama's first time ever visit to the U.S.-Mexico border since becoming President. And yes, that's despite being asked numerous time by local officials and the Governors of the border States over the last two and half years.
