“I agree with you entirely. But if we need to secure our courthouses, legislatures, white house, and now our schools with metal detectors - aren't we already in deep deep fear? When we can't protect even the most vulnerable in our society - shouldn't we be in fear?”
“I missed your point. What does the ACLU have to do Gun Control? I am not aware that they have argued either for it or against it.”

“The 2nd is the only amend the ACLU does not support. The point is, that labeling an org that defends a civil liberty as "evil" or a "killer" just because you do not like their strong postion on a civil liberties issue.. is ignorant.”
“Why is it always lost in these discussions that we invited these people here? We invited them because they are on the whole, family oriented, committed to education and self improvement, hard working, honest, ethical people who don't ask for anything contrary to popular myth. Many many many of them pay taxes and get nothing for it - ZERO. Instead of deporting them why don't we deport pedophiles, welfare sloths, tax cheats, bankers who cheat and defraud, and politicians who tweet body parts.”

“Somehow you think that the American People in general are responsible for Illegal Immigration. If anybody “invited” people to illegally immigrate to the USA it was people who wanted to exploit them. Per the Pew Center and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 7.3 million people residing and working in the USA are employed in the same professions where most of the 19.5 million currently unemployed Americans used to work. Should we believe the 19.5 million unemployed Americans “invited” people to come to the USA illegally?
Harvard Economist George Borjas stated, "In dragging down wages, immigration currently shifts about $160 billion per year from workers to employers." The Rich get richer and the Poor get poorer. Should we believe that the Poor “invited” people to illegally come to the USA so that they could move closer to the poverty line?
Unemployment insurance and welfare paid to 7.3 million people who are unemployed while 7.3 million people work illegally in the USA costs Taxpayers $100 billion per year. And that does not count the other costs engendered by illegal immigration. While those people in the USA illegally contribute only $11 billion to the tax coffers annually. Should we think the American Taxpayer paying the bill for all this “invited” people to enter the USA illegally?
The only people who “invited” anyone to come illegally to the USA are exploitive employers and people who seek political power.”
