Note: The video that I attached is by the 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors. Greg, the guy on the right, actually suggested the "What it looks like in 2010" line that you see on the t-shirt. Thanks Greg! www.18mmw.com

What does an illegal immigrant look like anyways? (shrug)

Side thought: When Arizona signed it's new Immigration Law, a thought came to mind. It revolved around how seemingly black and white this issue can be to people. I have to admit, if I were to look at the idea of being here “illegally” it seems like laws are clearly drawn and therefore an immigration bill like this could be viewed as a way to help police this. Simple right? But of course things are not black and white like we think they are. An example… I recently viewed this documentary on YouTube by Michael Pollen, author of “The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and he spoke about how the USA dumps their excess corn supplies into Mexico which effectively puts MILLIONS of farmers out of business. That was certainly an eye opener to me. The food that WE grow, consume, and indirectly benefit from, by sales to other countries, has a negative economic impact on those counties so close to us, like Mexico. Their loss is our gain. If people lose their jobs, of course they are going to go where there is opportunity. I would do the same. Because I eat these foods, I am contributor. And because I’m benefiting, the LEAST I could do is think a little more critically about the things the my laziness wants to simplify. I’m sure my commentary here is just touching ONE of the MANY issues that revolve around immigration laws but I just wanted to share a different view point that I had recently gained.
