Dire Consecuences...

This is just so funny...
what an argument for an open
Immigration policy!!!

It brought a smile to my face, but got me thinking!

There is a lot of truth conveyed in this image, and it is not just related to burritos. Migrants, with documents or without them provide services that our economy needs and our people demand, those that call for lower wages, more effort and hard labor ...the kind of work me and you typically do not want.

I wonder how we would manage without the laborers, fruit pickers, construction workers, nannies, waiters, gardeners and yes... the burrito makers that are so much a needed part of our society?

As the immigration debate and the persecution of immigrant families continues I wonder if people remember that many of their ancestors came here under similar circumstances!

Does the Liberty lady still say the words of welcome?

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door

Ok, al inferno con la le y la economia national. Todos se pueden quedar!
