I saw this comic in the paper and got a good laugh! I am not big on politics but, I do care about the debate over immigration laws. I think that Tee summarized it perfectly in her post, The Great (Immigration)Debate. I couldn't have said it better and I agree that America should be open to all, given that they follow the proper steps and laws to become legal. The freedom that we experience as Americans did not come to us freely. I believe that anyone who resides in this wonderful land needs to appreciate and honor that fact.
Having said that, I was at Home Depot with Sterling a couple of days ago. I had decided to wait in the car while he ran in to grab some stuff. While I was waiting, I saw several families of Latin decent getting out of their cars. As I watched them, I couldn't help but wonder how they were feeling these days. I wondered if they felt like everyone was watching them or judging them. It made me sad because I thought that our country was far beyond the racism issues that we had known in the past. While the immigration debate is not necessarily a racist type of issue, it does deal mostly with one particular group of people.
I just realized that some people have thrown themselves into this debate and perhaps let emotional factors and opinions govern their behaviors. That makes me sad. I believe that the issue is just one of abiding by the legal system that we have established, whether you are white, black, purple, or green!! So, I just wanted to put my little opinion out there and let everyone know that we are all equal in the eyes of God who did, after all, bless us with this wonderful country.
