Gentlemen is a difficult moniker to use in lieu of their consideration for the conservation of life
Oxford English Dictionary: Biology: An animal or plant living in a place to which it has migrated.
Anyone who leaves their normal place of residence for another (temporary or otherwise) is an immigrant by definition. If the government actually was able to penalize businesses that hire illegal immigrants, the immigrant's positions would begin to open up to US citizens. But the last time US citizens were picking produce in the fields, people were dying of starvation during the dust bowl. There is a difference between sound immigration policy, border and job security and disregard for human dignity in a police state. SB1070 blurs the lines between racial profiling and reasonable suspicion simply because of the xenophobic roots of the nature of the issue which are altered in a moment of sociopolitical insecurity. I really feel that the American Dream, as the mainstream has come to define it, has come to rest on the shoulders of predominantly Mexican and Central American immigrants. But by now, I'm more inclined to call this American escapist ideal the American Bourgeoisie.
Jim and Nick, thanks for the stellar job.
