"'We're not talking about criminals here, . . .' said Tony Baez, president and CEO of the Council for the Spanish Speaking."
No, they're not criminals. They broke the law with their very first act in the United States, but they're not criminals. No. And they continue to break the law with every day that they spend in our country illegally, but they're not criminals. No.
And the people who steal from you are not criminals, either. In fact, all the people who break all the laws all over our country are not criminals. No. They and what they do may be technically "illegal," but they're not criminals. No.
What a dolt I am to think that breaking laws makes you a criminal. Boy, my parents sure screwed up when they taught me right from wrong.
