Activists undaunted on (illegal) immigration

The Oregonian--

Robin’s Commentary
Well the daily dead fish wrapper as Lars Larson calls it has done it again by making it sound like Americans are totally against "immigration" in general.
After a year of pickets at day-laborer sites and marches that filled downtown streets, Oregon activists on both sides of the immigration debate are preparing for Round Two
the issue that they are referring to is citizens like Daniel{Daniel's Political Musings}-- and organizations like Oregonians for Immigration Reform{OFIR}-- who are actively protesting illegal immigration, not immigration in general as the article sounds. there is a major difference.
....But the biggest obstacle might be what some see as a boon, The Portland Immigrant Rights Coalition organizer Marco Mejia said. Thousands turned out last year because they were outraged by a House bill sponsored by U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis. that would have criminalized illegal immigration and those who assisted.
"That was upfront anti-immigrant sentiment," said Mejia, a program director for the American Friends Service Committee in Portland. "Now, people are confused by the compromise legislation. It has created a little bit of a division."

"Criminalized illegal immigration"
Think about that phrase for a minute... "Criminalize"... "Illegal"
Although immigrant-rights advocates say there have been no large-scale raids in Oregon, they have noticed pickets photographing or taking down license plate numbers of employers at day-laborer sites.

If it were gang activity going on (not that I'm associating the two together), there would not be anyone criticizing someone for taking pictures of license plates of the vehicles involved.

The point is that there is a major difference between "legal" and "illegal" immigration being that one went through the process and expense to come here legally, while the other bypassed the process altogether.

I, too , am tired of immigration and illegal entry being grouped together. What other connections can we make - making a withdrawal or robbing a bank? As a student I am constantly told to define my terms FIRST. Maybe the leaders of our country need to get the dictionary out and start over. Under the word illegal, as a definition is "illegal immigrant"!

If you go against your group interests while black you're an uncle tom, if you do so while white you're open-minded. If you express group interests while black you're standing up for your people, if you do so while white you're racist.

"Liberals and respectable conservatives say there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries."

"The Netherlands and Belgium are as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them."

"Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites."

"What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?"

"How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?"

"And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?"

"But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews."

"They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white."

"Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white."
