This is not a race issue, although Sen. Reid, in his bid to be re-elected, is desperately trying to make it one. This is about what is legal and what is illegal according to our laws. It amazes me how many of our elected officials in Washington, D.C., a majority of whom have a law degree, don't understand the difference between legal and illegal.
It quotes Reid as saying that,
Hispanics shouldn't be treated any differently than earlier European immigrants simply because 'their skin's a tone darker.'
When someone breaks the law, they must be prosecuted or no one will respect any laws.
