Bender's Immigration Bulletin links to Gen. Colin Powell on immigration. This wonderful speech highlights immigrants and immigration as the foundation of the US and speaks against those that seek to close the borders to "protect" us from "invaders."
Not withstanding this positive experience, this great immigration experience of ours--we are an immigrant country--people sometimes forget this. There are too many of our fellow citizens and leaders who want to focus on a discussion about protecting America from the dangers that our immigrants pose. They worry about American culture being overwhelmed by an influx of people who don't speak "our" language or who worship in a different way or dress in an unfamiliar way.
While Powell applauds Obama in his speech the truth is we're still seeing things like Border Bonanza: SBInet where buckets of money are being thrown into "border security" technology. (From Border Lines)
