IMMIGRATION: Who’s the real problem?

Two Southern states, Georgia and South Carolina, are currently dealing with “immigration” issues (TNT, 7-3 ). Obviously they appear to be aimed at one particular ethnic group.

Maybe it’s time therefore to revisit a humorous yet thought-provoking quote by comedian Pat Paulsen: “All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian.”

  1. Excellent quote!!!

    Norman adjective-deficiently declares –
    “Obviously they appear to be aimed at one particular ethnic group.”

    Norman, Norman, Norman…please rein in the incomplete mantra “immigration”
    and engage enough intellect to supply the missing component “ILLEGAL”
    which has nothing to do with race, ethnicity or cultural background.

    Here, let me help you and those utilizing
    ambiguous/
    confusing/
    dishonest/
    incomplete description tactics…
    one more time, the pivotal term was never “Immigration”, get it?
    The word that you flee from in your PC global village little world is : ILLEGAL.
    Hope that enlightens your vocabulary compass…

  3. Pat Paulsen eh? Now there is a person to model yourself after. If you want to start quoting comedians, there’s not enough space on this page to list all of them who may have a different take on illegal aliens.

  4. Did the Europeans know the laws of the land upon arriving on the Indian soil?

    NOPE. They made their own.

  5. The real problem is with the companies and individuals that hire un-documented workers.

  6. Pass the eye-rolling popcorn…..Kardnos ( leading by example ) is about to …..
    drumroll…..
    self eject…
