CAUSA seeks to return immigrant issues to forefront
Members of CAUSA, an immigrant-advocacy group with offices in downtown Salem, rallied last week outside the district offices of U.S. Rep. David Wu and U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley in Portland.
Francisco Lopez, CAUSA's executive director, said immigration reform would help keep families together, bring employers and workers out of the shadows and ensure a more equitable tax system for everyone.
Marchers will be back at Merkley's office at noon Friday, Lopez said.
You know what else would "keep families together" and "bring people out of the shadows"? Not arresting anybody for anything.
Instead of feeling compassion for criminal aliens who break our laws we should feel contempt for parents who put their children in this position. What kind of person marries someone who could be deported at any moment? How do a couple arrive at the decision to have a child when they don't have a legal home here?
Illegal aliens know what the law is, they break it, they involve children and then expect us to feel sorry for them.
As for employers and workers who are in the shadows: let's turn on the light and watch them scurry away like the cockroaches they are. Letal workers and their ingenuity will step in to fill the market void.
