I think we could all use a reminder of the "double-standard we apply that reviles others as rule-breaking intruders while celebrating ourselves a go-getting renegades who don’t let the rules slow us down."

Immigration Reform should be a Higher Priority than the Border Fence

An experiment:
Pretend you are a poor Mexican (in Mexico) with no family in the US, and no specific offer of a job in the US. You want to immigrate so that you can look for a good job and live the American Dream (TM).

Let's also imagine for a minute that you have internet access (I know it's unrealistic, but it's the only way I might convince some of my readers to participate in this experiment).

Start at and find the forms and procedures for you to become a US citizen.

This was as far as I got. Let me know if you have any more luck than I do.
