A Tad UnAmerican

I've been trying to stay out of this immigration debate.  Mainly because I don't blame Hispanic people who want to come to this country.  Oops..... I guess you're supposed to call them Latinos now.
If you believe the anthropologists, we are all immigrants on this continent.   Even the Indians... I mean.... Native Americans.
But we are supposed to be a nation of laws... not of men.   That is one of the hallmarks that keep us free, and keep us from falling under the dictatorship of a particular person or group.
And we have a specific set of laws regarding how people can enter this country as a legal immigrant.   If we don't like these laws, we have the legislative ability to change them, but to look the other way while others break them, or to condemn those who seek to enforce the laws.... this seems to be a tad Un-American.
So the story that I saw today on ABC News (yes.... I am a glutton for punishment)... about Latinos who feel threatened because they are on a list of illegal immigrants, and make a critique that they feel like they are being hunted, has me stymied.
Tell me the problem with making a list of people who have broken the law, and tell me why they shouldn't be apprehended and forced to comply.   If you don't agree with the law, then follow the Democratic process and change it.
I guess I'm just one of those narrow minded conservatives.
