Diaz friends rally at Capitol to change immigration laws
Diaz family supporters took their case for immigration reform to Salem last week and returned with a sense of hope.
(I sure am anxious to crush that hope)
Luis Diaz Sr. and his 12-year-old daughter Jennifer met Friday afternoon with state Sens. Avel Gordly and Ryan Deckert and Rep. Suzanne Bonamici to discuss possible legislation that could reunite families like theirs, torn apart by broken immigration laws.
Gordly is sponsoring Senate Joint Memorial 4 that urges Congress to make family reunification a priority in federal immigration reform.

I for one am very worried about families torn apart by pretty much any of our laws. Millions of "otherwise law abiding"* husbands are in prison just because they wanted a better life for themselves and sold drugs, robbed a bank or killed a person or two. Think of the children. Don't they deserve to have their "hardworking" fathers freed from the oppression of living in a society where there are rules?
I for one wish the Diaz family the best of luck... in Guatemala! Good riddance.
*when I, or the media, say "otherwise law abiding" we mean "they break tons of laws"
