Saved By Jesus!
Incrediable story out of the Arizona desert. I just feel really bad for the kid in all this. And wonder how both sides of the immigration debate will handle this.

Yesterday in New Bedford, Mass. an immigration raid
netted some 300-350 illegal immigrants who were working at a factory that made (primarily) leather goods for the U.S. military. Mostly women from Central America, they were rounded up and sent to a detention facility 60 miles away...without their children
, many of whom were stranded at daycare or school and are now in limbo. Meanwhile, Congress begins debate on immigration reform

Illegal immigration into the United States from Mexico is, for the people coming across, a dangerous
and not always successful
method of trying to live and work here. The Mexican government has published a booklet (english version)
which is distributed with some popular comic books and is designed to both discourage citizens from crossing over and offer advice on the dos and don'ts of safe crossing. Reactions
north of the border to this are predictably mixed

Utah politics you don't know whether to laugh or cry.
From Paul Rolly's column in the Salt Lake Tribune
"The Republican state convention delegate was discussing with a prominent Utah GOP elected officeholder the issue of immigration when the delegate whined that a fence should be constructed to span the entire USA-Mexican border to keep out illegal immigrants.
"What happens when they climb the fence?" asked the politician.
"You electrify it," said the delegate. "Then they won't touch it."
"But what if they touch it? You would let them die?"
"It would be their choice," said the delegate.
"What about a mother with a baby strapped to her back? You would let the mother and the baby die?"
"It would be the mother's choice to kill that baby," said the delegate.
"Then you're in favor of abortion?" asked the officeholder.
