I am not sure if the recent immigration protests in large American cities are humouous or not. At least 80,000 Hispanic workers did not show up for work the day of the protest marches. My first reaction is "fire them." Long story short, lax immigration policies have put the entire situation in a bind. Congress is considering making illegal stays in our country a felony, something well overdue I surmise. One Hispanic woman was quoted as saying, "My husband is an illegal immigrant and if he is deported, how will I support myself and our four children?" Maybe you should've thought of that prior to moving in and sucking local public assistance dry. Maybe creating four mouths to feed knowing your husband is an illegal immigrant was a poor and risky decision. Time will tell.
