Huzzah to the immigrants' rights marchers. If virtual solidarity counts for anything, count me in.

'In New York City, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, together with half a million Latino, African and Asian immigrants marched into the heart of Manhattan.'

What about Irish?

Irish indeed.

The Irish don't all agree, except for how it fits their agenda.

Not all poets agree with illegal immigrants protesting in our streets when what they are doing would be illegal in their own country. There, they would be felons.

Many legal immigrants take great offense to the sense of entitlement exhibited by illegal immigrants marching in the streets of a country other than their own.

That is because legal immigrants went through our legal system to gain citizenship, and they believe that it cheapens the processs to open it up to people who simply feel entitled because they gained entry to this country illegally.

I do too.

And their equating their protest with the Civil Rights Movement is a little bit insulting and disingenous.

The whole organizing phenom smells of marxism and of people who are of our country but who hate our country.

But it's totally just for the U.S. to profit off the cheap labor of other nations? Borders are porous. Nationalities are porous. Why do we think our country's extra-territorial exertions of power are not reversible?

I'm fairly certain protests are legal in Mexico.
