"The consciousness of good intentions disdains ambiguity. I shall not, however, multiply professions on this head. My motives must remain in the depository of my own breast. My arguments will be open to all, and may be judged of by all. They shall at least be offered in a spirit which will not disgrace the cause of truth."
-'Publius' The Federalist No. 1
Are over 125 co-sponsors wrong?I should think not.
The bill should pass without question (and questions are welcome). With all of the rhetoric and grandstanding that goes with the immigration issue, common sense in areas should prevail. Though there are many prolific factors and nuances to this issue, we should agree collectively that there are indeed prominent issues warranting obsevance, that would allow us to move forward. Naturally, the passage of this bill would a tremendous first step, this would go to discourage those immigrants that illegally enter our land and are not serious about staying within the country and contributing to our society. I applaud those that want to make a better life for themselves, that is the American dream that we all seek; however, if you are to become a citizen of this great land, we should not be forced to adhere to your way of life as much as you shoud seek to become an American. Make no mistake, this is not to say that everyone should be completely assimilated; though, there are some American ideals that should be enshrined. One common language, one common voice, is a great place for us all to begin.
