I read the comments, I listen to the countless media points of view its good to talk but when peoples lives are affected every day by this then we have to focus on the problem. We need to legalize our Irish that are here, for whatever reasons they are here, they want to be here and have stuck it out through thick and thin. So now we know they are here and they have no available way to get legal can we not all just put every drop of energy into legalizing them.
If a bill exists that will do that then no hodge podge that is the bill for us. Get on the phones, that is the effective way to lobby and insist that the newcomers are a vital part of America. Solidarity is the key and hidden agendas won't help. The only agenda is to "legalize the Irish" no other t shirt will do, this is not about individuals it is about the group and the group must stick together and support one another. The Irish immigrants have always strengthened America and not weakened her this flock will be no different. They are more educated than their ancestors and they choose America for a better life, it wasn't war or fear or famine that brought them here they wanted to come to America, it was their desire for America that motivated them.
America will always attract immigrants it always did, please stop pretending that the elephant is not in the room. They cut off the Irish quota and they kept coming anyway time is well overdue to reinstall the quota and let the Irish stay.
