Immigration Issue Roils

As demonstrations took place in cities coast-to-coast much of America remains baffled over the immigration issue's many facets. How did we get to this point? What in the world is the right thing to do for those illegal immigrants already here, and to get control of our borders?

This Reuters story sums up news about the rallies today:

“Hundreds of thousands of people rallied in U.S. cities from Boston to Phoenix on Monday, waving American flags and calling for dignity and rights for millions of illegal immigrants. The national day of protest, the biggest in a wave of rallies that some have compared to the 1960s civil rights movement, was provoked by legislation in Congress that would turn millions of illegal immigrants into felons and fence off sections of the U.S. border with Mexico.

"Houston television reported that flyers had been distributed in the industrial suburb of Pasadena urging people to burn down the homes of illegal immigrants.”
