I think it great that Average Gay Joe will be marching tomorrow (after work). I also like the fact that we can disagree here at this blog on various issues. There is quite a split on immigration over at Polipundit as well.
AGJ outlined some good reasons and also articulated the right immigration policy and on those points I completely agree. But I have to disagree with him marching as he will in effect be lending credence to those who wish not to IMMIGRATE but to INVADE. The groups organizing these marches are not interested in becoming Americans, but well-paid Mexican workers in a place that happens to be called America. Frankly, I’m surprised Jesse Jackson isn’t waving a sign saying “Illegal Immigration = Slavery”…cuz it seems that way to me. But this round of slavery is self-imposed by the illegals. Bizarre.
AGJ… let me suggest that after you march you then do what I’m planning to do. Wearing a very large USA flag shirt or lapel pin and going to a restaurant of my choice and waiting as long as I have to for service (assuming there was a walkout at the establishment). Then after dinner I will thank them and tell the owner he or she doesn’t NEED illegals to have a successful business in the United States.
My family came here as immigrants too. But they didn’t break the law first and expect to be given a pass. They followed the rules and then became AMERICANS. That is not the agenda that AGJ will be helping with his voice tomorrow night.
So my fellow Americans, do your part tomorrow to COMBAT the boycott. Go out and spend money. Hell, if it can work against al-Qaeda.. then it can work against the pro-invader illegals.
