130. Equality under the law. Excellent.
As a gay man married to my partner in Massachusetts, I am personally pissed about this whole immigration issue. The right wing WANTS these illegals here. A vast majority of them are social conservatives. They are against abortion, equal rights for gays, etc. It angers and upsets the hell out of me that these illegals are breaking the law and one day could have more rights than me. My family has been in this country since before there WAS a country here.
During the Constitutional Conventions here in Boston when the legislature was debating same sex marriage, I was surrounded by non-English speaking religious fanatics who were fighting against my equal rights. That pretty much did it for me. If it were up to me, I hate to say it, but I would gladly ship them either back to where they came from or at the very least, out of Massachusetts. Call me what you will, but that is how I feel. Right or wrong in others opinions, that is how I feel.
I know that they work very hard. I know that many of them are in industries or services that I and many other probably would not want to do. I know that they are here trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. I WANT them to succeed. HOWEVER....they need to follow the law.
