We are a nation of immigrants

I just listened to a TV debate on illegal immigration. It amazes me how the Left continually throws up the red herring of how we are a nation of immigrants.

Of course we are a nation of immigrants. I don't know any Republicans who are anti-immigration. Imagine bill proposing to stop all immigration to America. I can't imagine a single Republican Congressperson voting for such a thing. In fact, I can't imagine anyone even proposing such a ridiculous idea--which is probably why it has never, to my knowledge, been proposed.

Now imagine a group arguing that we need to prosecute illegal drug users more aggressively, and the best argument the opposing side can come up with is that we should not go after or prosecute illegal drug users because we are a nation of drug users (i.e. Aspirin, Tylenol, Benadryl, Caffeine, Lipitor, etc.). What is it about illegal that the Democrats don't understand?

It is particularly disturbing to hear members of Congress--like Nancy Pelosi--arguing, in effect, that we should not enforce immigration laws passed by Congress!

What other laws can we ignore? What other laws to they ignore?
