I am currently rereading ¨The Four Agreements¨ by Don Miguel Ruiz only in Spanish. The agreements are:

- Be impecable with your Word
- Do not make Assumptions
- Do not take anything personally
- Do the best that you can

Works for me...

The legal status of immigrants from Mexico is a recent state of concern. In the past (prior to 1960) our relationships with our neighbors to the south was far more conciliatory than the current racist attitude of the American people. In fact, during World War II we encouraged Mexican farm workers to harvest our crops whilst our boys were fighting the war.

In the 1860's we encouraged Chinese and the Irish to immigrate so that the transcontinental railroad could be built. The force immigration of Africans to our country was often illegal and seldom transported through Ellis Island.

The fact remains that when our economy requires immigration the political status of the folks willing to work and strive for the betterment of our country be damned.

Free Enterprise is the ultimate form of Democracy in that the market determines the supply and demand for both products and labor. The 12 million currently illegal immigrants in our Nation are here because our markets demand their labors. Without these individuals providing their efforts the costs of goods created and sold would increase to a level of which many "Americans" would not be able to afford. The economy would constrict, as would our global economic condition.

I have yet to touch upon the humanitarian history of our Nation. The majority of our so-called legal immigrants since 1519 (Cortez's landing in New Spain) have arrived to realize economic and political freedom. From the Pilgrims, to the Germans and Irish, to the Italians, and other Europeans, our History books honor their plight to our borders. Nary an American politico does not emphasize an ancestor whose courage and hard work is not the basis of the American Dream.

And yet those immigrants of color: Africans, Asians, Hispanics ~ are not honored for their like quest of instilling the American Dream into their lives and lives of their families. No, these hard working and courageous individuals' stories are discounted in the case of the African-Americans (forced immigration) or ridiculed in the case of the Chinese, Vietnamese, and Mexicans.

This alternate attitude is Racism.

This alternate attitude is not the Christianity of Jesus' "Love Thy Neighbor"

Economically, this racist anti-Christian right-wing political hypocrisy is more debilitating than its cost. Were the current 12 million illegal immigrants given social security numbers, their income tax contribution would completely out-weigh the cost of services the government of our Nation provides to all Americans.

Additionally, their labors would continue our economic growth thereby benefiting all Americans. Rather than expel these individuals we should grant these courageous hard workers immediate citizenship. (Their actions are far more representative of our ancestors).

It is the Christian thing to do.

It is the historically right thing to do.

It is economically the smartest thing to do.

And lastly, it is the Politically savviest thing to do.
'Cause we Latino's aren't going away.
We "legals" are growing in numbers.
And we do vote.

"Imagine"
John Lennon,
October 9, 1940 - December 8, 1980

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Love Conquers Fear
