Warning: I have yet to fully dissect, respond, and actually DO the activities in workshop. At this point, I will simply comment on the exercises mentioned and include my thoughts on the subject. At a later date I will compile all aspects of the workshop in a static page. It is that good.
I am admit that I am a horrible procrastinator. I love to plan, but it seems to go nowhere. I need to get out of the planning stages and actually implement. I am getting there – slowly.
I came across this letter thanks to one of my favorite bloggers, Bookworm Room. She wishes that she could voice her feelings on the subject as well as Dennis Prager in this particular letter, and I largely have to agree. I’m just not sure if Dennis Prager fully understands Mexican politics. He claims that the PRI that dominated Mexican politics for 70 years is similar to the Democratic Party in the United States. While I have studied a little of Mexican history and politics, I would never go so far as to make such a claim. I just don’t know enough about the subject, and the letter above doesn’t go into enough detail to confirm or deny the statement.
I’ve long wanted to write about illegal immigration, but I never felt as though I could adequately put my feelings on the subject into writing. That alone should tell readers just how conflicted I am on the subject. I traveled extensively in Mexico and saw firsthand the disparity between various segments of Mexican society. I fully understand the reasons why illegal immigrants make the choices that they do. At the same time, as the great-granddaughter of legal Ukrainian immigrants, I do not understand the unwillingness to work within the system. I can’t imagine how any legal immigrant to the United States can support illegal immigration.
