Spending time with my wife

I know it has been a slow past few days. Enjoy the archives. I'v been giving my wife more time, and getting geared up for Accounting finals in two weeks. Thanks to everyone who has been visiting the blog for the last few days, despite the absent updates.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Executives, workers arrested in nationwide move against pallet maker

Don't forget: the victim is the immigrant, not because he lost his job, but because he was being exploited. He was being exploited, not because he could not get documents, but because the system allowed for him to come in illegally, and the company had every incentive to hire illegals. This is good. It's about time!

I am sorry for the immigrant who will have a hard time starting over back in their home country. It was wrong, but I understand how life in Latin America can be--very difficult. But this does not excuse illegal immigration.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested seven current and former IFCO Systems managers on charges they conspired to transport, harbor and encourage illegal workers to reside in the United States for commercial advantage and private financial gain, said Glenn T. Suddaby, the chief federal prosecutor in Albany, N.Y., where some arrests were made.It sounds like they are feeling the heat from the voters--you know, those citizens tha…

Next time you hear Presidente Fox demanding fair treatment for illegal immigrants...

Ask him about this:
The level of brutality Central American migrants face in Mexico was underscored on Monday, when police conducting a raid for undocumented migrants near a rail yard in central Mexico state shot to death a local man, apparently because his dark skin and work clothes made him look like a Central American. It is this sort of rampart corruption from the government, and the police the is supposed to represent them, that is destroying Mexico's economy. It doesn't have to be that way. It's time the U.S. started speaking out about the truth in Mexico and in other third world countries. Until there is real reform, we will continue to see millions escaping the mayhem and crime of Latinamerica.

Blogosphere '08 straw poll

Hugh Hewitt is hosting another '08 straw poll. Make sure to head on over and Vote. Results for Latino Issues readers' votes are collected here.

What do you all think about Guiliani or McCain? I like McCain's military background, but he is a media-playboy. He has been inside the beltway much to long. Guiliani would just not stand a chance--to much of a social liberal. Though, its to bad--his leadership skills are great.

Let's make sure our voice is heard.

Happy Easter -- Death Conquered!

Have a blessed and happy Easter. From today's Daylights:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

The greatest challenge facing anyone on earth is how to face his or her own mortality. The good news is that death has been conquered. Jesus, God in human form, died as a substitute for our sins. We now have the choice of accepting Jesus' death as payment for our sins or dying for our sins ourselves. We now have hope through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus promised (John 8:51) that those who believe in Him, though they die, yet would live. Acts 2:42 said that God raised Jesus from the dead putting an end to the agony of death. We know that death is no longer a master over Jesus (Romans 6:9) and that the death He died He died to sins once for all (Romans 6:10).

Death cannot separate us from God (Romans 8:38). Because we've been freed from the shadow of death, whi…
