McCain makes a stand

After a period of relative silence from Senator McCain on immigration, the presidential candidate and long time ILIR supporter, made his position clear during a speech in California today. Read the full story from the AP here.

In other media clippings, Lou Dobbs has finally been taken to task about his infamous comments about immigrants spreading disease and pestilence!!
Read the full story from the NY Times
Also read John Duddy comments on the Irish community and his support for the ILIR.

And, just in case you're in need of a little more encouragement to call your Senators and Congresspeople again this week, have a read of
this editorial and remind yourself that the nay-sayers are in the minority and that, as last weeks NY Times/CBS poll found, 75% of respondents supported a path to legalization.

Keep the pressure on and keep up the good work!

Absolutely ridiculous. Legalize the Irish...and the terrorists, blacks, Mexicans etc...too! You let one group of immigrants in, you have to let them all in. Go back home and do it the legal way, like my parents and so many before. How dare you come to another country and demand change...go demand change in your own country and leave us alone, we don't want you here if you can't do things the legal way. Have respect for the laws of this great nation.
