The immigration deal...

If I may step in with some federal level rant. Immigration has been all the talk in DC. It infuriates me to my core. First of all, we need to have a much easier way to let people in, "give me your tired, your hungry" is not passe.

Then this struck a nerve.
The first soldier to die for the United States in the current war in Iraq was Marine Lance Cpl. Jose Gutierrez, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala.

He died for you.
Somos todos Americanos. Todos Americanos.

Jose Gutierrez got his green card in 1999. He was not illegal immigrant when he joined U.S. Army.

This struck a nerve: Three Salvadoran immigrants living in Virginia, two illegally and one as a lawful permanent resident, were found guilty of helping four September 11 operatives use fraudulent documentation to obtain Virginia identification documents ... In all, the five hijackers based their Virginia identification documents on the residency information of one bribed Salvadoran.
