    Like the issue of slavery of 150 years ago, this is our irrepressible conflict. When you read Seward's great speech of 1858 in the context of the illegal alien you will find many similarities. It has political and economic undertones and religious organizations are involved. And the concept of human rights comes into play as well.
    Once you stray from the rule of law you are dabbling in anarchy. The power vacuum sucks in activists. Laws exist to arbitrate such contests, and when the law makers wink and nod and ignore the statutes, it is anyone's game.
    I'm OK with the DREAM ACT, under certain conditions.
    1) The parents who brought them here need to self-deport.
    2) The home country loses a green card spot for each student.
    3) We repeal the nonsense about anchor baby citizenship.
    Of course, none of the activists want to give anything in return for our largesse.

    More editorializing presented as "news" to push the pro-amnesty agenda of the Deseret News.

    Note the at the Supreme Court there were both demonstrator FOR as well as against the Arizona law.

    And, that they Supremes seemed skeptical of Obama's Justice Department's claims that the Arizona law is somehow flawed.

    I support the Arizona law and so do millions of Americans. And, so do many of the LEGAL immigrants who have come here.

    Opponents are largely those here illegally, and those who urge them to disobey our laws.
