Immigration reform is necessary. I don't buy the garbage that 70% of Americans support this law. If they do, they are ignorant of the facts when it comes to UNDOCUMENTED immigration. Immigration has always been a part of United States history. Many folks look down upon immigrants today. Yet, many of them are the descendants of immigrants who were part of what believed to be the scum of America. Italians, Greeks, Romanians, and the Irish among others were considered the garbage of American society at one point. They underwent the same process many Mexicans are currently undergoing. How many of you (and I ask this in a polite manner) knew that the first anti-immigration laws were racist and targeted certain folks? I'll let you guess who they targeted in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
