Anti-immigrant group shows ugliest of colors

The people on the anti-immigrant side are really feeling free to show their truly ugly colors now.

Take this report from CNN this morning. Petty Officer Eduardo Gonzalez is about to be deployed to Iraq for a third time but is worried about his wife Mildred who faces deportation. Imagine this; a US sailor is off to Iraq for the THIRD time and he may lose his wife and baby son while he risks his life serving this country. Everyone quoted in the story, including army officials, is sympathetic and seeking a resolution.

Everyone, that is, except for the blinkered ugly folks from an anti-immigrant group.
That's just fine, (if Mildred gets deported) according to Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which lobbies for tougher laws on illegal immigration.

"What you're talking about is amnesty for illegal immigrants who have a relative in the armed forces, and that's just outrageous," he said. "What we're talking about here is letting lawbreakers get away with their actions just because they have a relative in the military. ... There's no justification for that kind of policy."

There you have it. According to Mark Krikorian, those brave young men and women serving in Iraq deserve to have their wives and husbands deported. This kind of sentiment is beyond despicable.

I have never heard anything so ridiculous in my whole life.This man is risking his life for AMERICAN people and yet america will not accept him and his family into normal society. It just does not makes basically tells him he is worthless " yes you can die for our needs but we will not help you with yours"
i cannot understand the reasoning in this.
