    I retired from the US Customs and Border Protection, 35 years. Early in my career I tried to explain what I actually did in my position to my grandmother, I related an inspection where I discovered over a hundred passports hidden in a fake bottom case. She then told me how my great grandfather sent back his passport to be used by his brother. It put so much into perspective. Most of us have similar histories and don’t even know it. Ignorance may be bliss but it’s still ignorance. We need to deal with issues, I support the Dream Act.

    so…your story makes this illegal practice alright? The law and constitution which you swore to uphold is subject to tales from your grand mother?
    I suppose you are also receiving a pension… what does that say to all the people who came here the right way? my mother included?
    You should have declared a conflict of interest and resigned.

    So we are going to spend billions more educating these people so they can vote Democrat and people why the Right is up in arms.

    The Dream Act in its current form should not pass. I agree that the young people who were brought here by their parents are a special situation. Giving blanket amnesty to them and their parents will not fix ANY problem. In fact, that will simply encourage more people to sneak themselves & their children into the country.

    Two wrongs don’t ever make it right. Ronnie Reagan showed us how well blanket amnesty worked, not.
    The children that were brought here illegally should be given a chance to EARN their right to stay, as for the parents well, they broke the law, screw them.

    So you’re saying even an immigrant with a minimal education can see the Republicans are wrong?

    “fennec”…….Your question is meaningless,unless you count the current Hispanic invasion.Prior to this the mass immigration events of the early (1900’s) were handled with authority and efficiency.Those immigrants became Americans,my father was one…and contributed.The current invasion must be seen for what it is and stopped…“DREAM ACT”…? NO…!

    Spanish, English, Irish, Italians, Germans, Poles, all “illegal” immigrants over time, but they came with guns. The folks crossing the Bearing land bridge at least didn’t kill anyone to take the land, they waited until their populations grew enough to encroach on each other before even they started wars over territory, or cultural “differences”.

    Anyone of you righties know whether it’s even practically possible to get here legally? Thought not. Poor Georgia farmers are losing their crops because right-wing jerks are trying to score political points, and the people who want these jobs are being hounded out of the country. With no legal method of getting here and doing jobs we don’t want to do. Fortunately, the taxpayers will cover the farmers losses, so I guess it’s all okay.

    Alrighty Owie (and every other Regressive out there). Please name one illegal immigrant who has voted in a major election and has not gone to jail over voter fraud. Thanks.

    In other words, you have absolutely zero proof to point to. What a surprise.

    @femi okusami

    My story was to show that none of us, with the possible exception of you and your mother, are perfect. My great grandfather’s brother never made it over here. You say I had a conflict of interest and should have resigned…hmmm, since when is understanding what another person is feeling a conflict of interest. I enforced the laws and regulations to the letter, however understanding that anyone, given the right conditions, could find themselves on the wrong side of the law, I treated them with respect.
