Comedian Paul Rodriguez shares his thoughts on illegal immigration, in Dallas News.com. LINK
The illegal immigration issue is a hot-button topic right now; how is that being handled in the Latino entertainment community?
I disagree with my Hispanic brothers. You cannot serve two gods. You cannot have dual citizenship of Mexico and the same for America. I am American; God forbid that we go to war with Mexico, because I know which way I’ll point the gun. “If Mexico is so good,” I tell them, “why leave?”
My parents left because they were starving. I am grateful to this country, and I will lay my life down for it. I feel that if you’re in America illegally, you’ve got two options: You fix your status and get legit, or leave. We should be more in favor of deportation than the non-Latinos, but my brothers don’t feel like that.
What part of illegal don’t they understand? Think about it: Both political parties are talking about reform, but that’s just what it is – talk. We’re a nation of immigrants, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to do things.
