I just wish more Legislators would listen to their conscience. Undocumented doesn't HAVE to mean illegal: legislation has made it illegal. For HUNDREDS of years we and Mexicans have ignored the different borders between New Mexico and Old in order to find work. Why do we have to arrest the people who wish us no harm but wish to feed their families (keep the drug cartels out, but that's a different argument)?

Well said. in the 70s, 80s, and 90s I spent a lot of weekends in Baja while living in San Diego. The border was peaceful and crossing simple. Drugs and 9/11 made our borders with Mexico what they are today. We haven't built a wall separating us from Canada. Wonder why?
