What to muse about today?

 no irish need apply

Finally! Something about non-latino immigration! Not that I mind, but there are other people out there than latinos trying to get into the US. And it’s nice to know that there are more people creating a ruckus.

Just a few paragraphs that struck me:

The immigration debate has swept through Mexican canteens, Argentine bakeries and Caribbean music shops in the United States. Now, it has a new home: the local Irish pub.

Thousands of undocumented Irish immigrants, including many in Florida, are joining the drive to grant legal status to some 12 million immigrants residing illegally in the United States. In their most vocal demonstration so far, some 6,000 supporters are expected to show up at a Washington, D.C., rally today organized by the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. They’ll sport “Legalize the Irish” T-shirts and cast the bitter and polarized immigration debate in shamrock green.

 ~ Of course they need to be shamrock green. They’re IRISH! <snip>

Under the current system, advocates insist, the Irish ancestors of Presidents Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy would not have been able to legally enter the United States.

Those working to reduce immigration to the United States said no group should be singled out for special treatment.

“The Irish are no different from anyone else,” said Caroline Espinosa, a spokeswoman for the grassroots group, NumbersUSA. “It doesn’t matter where you’re coming from but how you came here, and if you came here illegally, you broke the law.”

Although, it makes me wonder if we’ll be seeing the NINA signs around…

Today’s list of inquisitors (no one could look at the sign, as the cube isn’t mine anymore, and the sign isn’t up):

  1. Veronica
  2. Broc
  3. Matt S
  4. Matt M (yeah, and they do work with eachother)
