You mean immigration enforcement actually works?

Who would have thunk it? Now I realize that this may not be one of McCain’s strongest issues, but I still feel it is worth noting enforcement of the laws already on the books is all that is necessary to maintain our cultural integrity. It has nothing to do with xenophobia, racism or whatever other claptrap proponents of the failed policy of comprehensive reform spew. My parents both immigrated here legally and patiently waited while all their paperwork was lost twice (total turnaround time was about 9-10 years). But they realized what they cared for most about this country would rapidly diminish if they wouldn’t assimilate to the culture. It is not to say they disavowed their heritage. But there is a big difference between being proud of one’s heritage and actively undermining the very culture from which you are trying to benefit.
