immigrant blues

A propos previous post; The Washington Post Magazine does an interesting story on illegal day laborers. With a personal touch, it sidesteps the political issues giving us a personal snap shot of what it's like to be one of those illegals. They are for the most part, simple men who want to feed their families and have had the bad luck of being born in pits of poverty like Nicaragua and El Salvador. They are men who want the same for their children Americans want. And these are the men that for whom the bill the House passed, is targeted. These will be the felons to be chased down for the "crime" of wanting a better life.
