Respect of Law

America was not only founded on the rule of law. We use to have the expectation that there would be respect for law. Although undocumented workers do have good reasons for justifying crossing a border without permission, the act is a flaunting of rules.

Anyway, I just love the following quote to describe the mass protests scheduled for April 10:

'"We're flexing our muscles to send a message that we are not criminals," said Juan Jose Gutierrez, director of Latino Movement USA.'

Senate struggles with immigration overhaul by Donna Smith.

Translated, we are engaged in thuglike behaviour to prove our civility. Let's hope the demos don't turn into riots. I suspect, however, that these mass protests will become a regular thing like the yearly student protests in France.
