The issue is illegal immigration.
And what I'm referring to is the disconnect between what we're seeing on the ground and what our leaders are pushing down our throats. The pabulum coming out of congress and the White House about illegals is maddening to those of us who patrol the streets in large urban areas. We see what our "enlightened" leaers are blind to: the violence, the machismo, the rigid need for "respect", the incessant demands for entitlements and the blatant disregard for our laws, our language and our national sovereignty. When public officials decry that illegals are forced to "live in the shadows" they never say where these "shadows" are. As far as I can tell, illegals aren't in any shadows - they're out in broad daylight. They purchase cars, open bank accounts, obtain easy credit, buy homes (multiple properties), go to the movies, rent movies, take vacations, go to emergency rooms when their kids get sick; in short, they're enjoying the life of a typical American. They even have dozens of their own spanish-language cable stations to choose from.
