Quote of the Day: the Judge Alan Jordan edition

"She followed all the rules. She is an example to everyone that you can do it the right way, and it will pay off for you."

-Judge Alan Jordan commenting on Cherokee County State Court Clerk Lucia Nerio, an El Salvador native, becoming a U.S. citizen.

A lot of folks think the debate on illegal immigration is about race; that illegal immigration opponents don't want hispanics coming across the border.

Those people are wrong.

Opponents of illegal immigrants are not against immigrants. They are against the individuals who broke the law to get into this country.

Illegal immigrants are a punch to the gut of legal immigrants like Lucia Nerio, who followed the rules and came to America the right way.
