My thoughts on immigration reform

I thought on this Father's Day, I'd share my thoughts on my father's immigration experience and the current debates among our lawmakers on this subject. Check out my post on Bring It On! for more.

Happy Father's Day to all you fathers and baby daddys out there.

I enjoyed your post on Bring It On. It reminded me of how my father and mother escaped China during the cultural revolution. They dreamed about a place where their children didn't have to go through such turmoil and danger just to simply live their lives freely. I've never had to experience what they've experienced and I'm very thankful for it.

I guess I don't know enough to say about the immigration dillema, but I don't think that we should stop people from trying to live a better life than they already have.

Hey, thanks for checking out the post. A commenter said that the solution was also to hold employers accountable, which I totally agree with. They hire these illegal immigrants for low wages and long hours, but then vilify them when people try to hold them accountable.

Capitalism at its finest, I guess.
