MURRIETA, Calif. — Rumors had swirled among anti-immigration activists near a U.S. Border Patrol station in Southern California that the agency would try again to bus in some of the immigrants who have flooded across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Instead, they got dueling anti- and pro-immigration rallies Friday.

    The Bible is very clear on the subject. We must obey the Laws Of God but we also must obey the laws of the land as well. These illegals are just that ILLEGAL. They broke the law, they knew they were doing it. America needs a fast resolution to the issue and that means suspending the mandatory court hearing law, immediate deportation, and seal the border with troops. Also sanction on mexico until they also seal theirs side of the border as well Swift deportation and no detention no matter the age or sex of the person.

    As a Christian-leader, a mixed-Latino, and an American,
    I can empathize with both-sides.

    Again, from a socioeconomic perspective, the human
    exploitation dynamic cannot be ignored:
    "Corporate America" i.e Tyson, Armour, the fast-food industry, et al,
    needs a vast reserve of unskilled and under-paid workers.
    Meanwhile, political-entities needs a future "Low-Information" voter base.
    None of the above, are better than the greedy and soul-less "Coyotes" who
    specialize in exploiting human-beings.

    For decades, Latino-AMERICANS -not unlike Native Americans-have been systematically marginalized, reduced to a "worker ant" and Fourth-class citizen status.
    As another ethnic-group, has long been given endless Cultural, Economic, and
    Political advantages (See: The "White House").

    My late, beloved Grandfather emigrated to Lincoln Co., NM, in 1908,
    legally. All four of his sons would serve in the military,

    Be sure, illegal-immigrants cannot have both "Criminal" and "Citizen" status,
    this would only sentence more human-beings, to a D-grade
    "American Dream":
    White Collar? Blue Collar? No Collar.
