I was just as curious, but thought I would reassure pondering that the squeaky wheel gets the grease with respect to the code violation. Regardless, the new city hall rant is one of the oldest and silliest rants in existence. Lilburn's latest design was scaled down from a single entity to a shared complex with a Library (which is actually a worse compromise).
If you are going to use prisons as a metaphor, the crimes most illegals are committing are more like traffic violations. I do not know of many traffic violators that are in prisons (though some just very well may be for DUI or vehicular manslaughter).
My point is, the rhetoric is that they are somehow as bad a murderers simply because they are in this country illegally. It should be more like traffic court. Yes, you are caught illegal. Pay a huge fine and be on your way. If you want to avoid another huge fine, become a citizen. Does that sound like a driver's licence? Driving without one (or insurance) is subject to a fine.
I believe that for the most part, the reason that one portion of the debate is often omitted is because it is something both sides could agree on. If the children are here due to their parents, what fault is it of their own. None.
*You mentioned those "released from their pimp" implying that these came voluntarily * that is not exactly what I was implying. However, the goal behind the message was to use other sources than what would otherwise be considered typical avenues for research.
I would challenge you to do more research than just press releases from research papers and opinion articles. Why not interview those in the trenches. Yes, interview illegals themselves, interview ice enforcers, interview those who went through legal channels, interview those who have been released from their pimp who had promised citizenship after they have 'earned it'.
If you are an illegal from Cuba, you get refugee status automatically You forgot Elian. He was tossed back into the country like a too small fish to fry into a pond. Even though his parents wished him to be free. So now the policy of wet feet, dry feet.
Your assessment regarding the Tea Party is false. It has more to do with paying for illegals when we already cannot afford those already legal immigrants or non-immigrants!
As far as the south of the border... I've spoken with plenty of those who have arrived from the south. I do not care of their status either way. Most come here because they want a better life and are treated poorly due to their race (yep, some are related to American Indians - north, central and south american Indian). Some even flee due to fear of the powerful drug lords who have killed family members. Why are so many drug lords nearby? They are close to their customers, yep our hungry for drugs united states citizenry. To deny that the drug world and sex trafficing world has no influence on immigration is far more naive than your perception of racism. I'd suggest you research it, but many are in denial of such a world exists and do not want to research it. They are content taking sides and simply blaming conservatives or liberls.
Then keep writing until they do care. Be that squeeky wheel that gets the grease. As old as the city of Lilburn, it is sad to compare it to the downtown of Norcross, Buford, Suwanee to name a few. Yes, it was burned years ago during the civil war but seriously. Is no one committed to building a new future to this city?
So if you feel that passion, write and keep writing. They will get tired of your letters and actually do something. If nothing - run for city politics. I along with many others would support you!
It can be explained simply to family and friends. If you are late, you do not get in. This is not a nightclub where some people leave the club and the bouncer let's others in. It is a graduation ceremony. People yelled in the past for their scholar and they will in the future. The key is to simply mind your manners.
It's like church at Christmas time. If you arrive when service begins, don't expect a good seat let alone any seat!
Actually, it will fair better at Jimmy Carter. However, this is what you get when people deny the second outer perimeter and deny a second airport. Where? It doesn't matter if it is in Cobb or Gwinnett. Atlanta needs a second airport and an another outer perimeter. If not, your other choice is MARTA in Gwinnett.
Potsiemaj, it was good while it lasted. A few people were using that to avoid part of the jam on I-85 S by using the access and then going straight onto 85 S again. Now those coming from the east going towards the diamond bridge will not have to wait as much.
Those HOT lanes, I tell ya...
I believe his point is that there was more than 1 or 2. For example, if there was one donated bible left behind by a volunteer that is ok. The basis is that there is more than one, hence a possible bible study group or intent to facilitate a bible study group.
However, a bible study group might have had a function there and failed to return the bibles to their original locations. Then who is at fault with that? The state?
