This is the personal opinion of this writer.

First off, I do not have anything of harboring ill feelings about any person who goes about it the correct way of obtaining documentation concerning becoming a United States citizen. Now observe, I think that those people who obtain documentation are within their rights, but that is where I draw the line. People who want to sneak into this country, who do not have any right as to obtaining documentation should not be allowed entrance into this country for any and all reasons. For this reason I have written an article in which I thought the LULAC program was at fault for the reasons specified.


Copied from 'LULAC council hosts My Heritage, My Legacy Grand Gala' which are at odds my presentations thus do not want me to express my presentation of personal beliefs.

This is the personal opinion of this writer.
Copy: 'Torres explained LULAC’s mission for the Latino community.' End of copy.
If there is a dividing line as expressed here, that line should fall on the side of 'Americanism'. If in that instance, or any other means of deployment, I say 'We are Americans first and foremost and that thought should be ingrained in each and every American's mindset'.
Copy: 'Torres said first generation Latino immigrants should be able to stay in this country, referring to the DACA program.' End of copy.
Are these DACA recipients Americans first and their native country second???? Do they even have a legal right to be in this country???? If not, I say goodbye to all.
Copy: “If a young person who is already here and all they know is America.' End of copy.
But in what state did they arrive here in this country, how long have they been living in this country, illegally, and to what country do the hold homage to. These are essentially the questions on the oath.
I see news reels of South American children and adults going against our national culture, morals, and culture. I don't want someone entering into this country and 'changing things' to fit their mold of what would make America great. I think that America was at it's height/zenith and it's because other people have flocked into America and started 'changing things' we now have a diluted form of 'just what it is to be an American'.
Copy “If a young person who is already here and all they know is America, they don’t know what it is to live in Central America, or Mexico, and these children have proven to have been contributors and they want to continue to go on to college; they’ve been productive all they want is that opportunity,” End of copy.
How can you say that 'if a young person who is already here and all they know is America, that they don't know what it is to live elsewhere???? Then you've made an invalid argument because of the terms of the question; They haven't lived anywhere else. You've made the point already that 'they have lived their lives under a form of government, so how can you say that 'this is the only form of government that they wish to live???? I say again, that this turmoil is the direct cause of trying to live under the American form of government and it's being rejected.
@TexaSoldier: I applaud you for your comments to this article, and I will endeavor to answer just what is social verses civil Justice.

Copy: 'Social justice is the equal distribution of resources and opportunities, in which outside factors that categorize people are irrelevant.
Social justice is a concept of fair and just relations between the individual and society. This is measured by the explicit and tacit terms for the distribution of wealth, opportunities for personal activity and social privileges. In Western as well as in older Asian cultures, the concept of social justice has often referred to the process of ensuring that individuals fulfill their societal roles and receive what was their due from society. In the current global grassroots movements for social justice, the emphasis has been on the breaking of barriers for social mobility, the creation of safety nets and economic justice.' End of copy.
I think the last sentence is the key: 'In the current global grassroots movements for social justice, the emphasis has been on the breaking of barriers for social mobility, the creation of safety nets and economic justice.' Therein lies the basis of Social Justice, Socialism.
Copy: 'Legal Justice
1) fairness. 2) moral rightness. 3) a scheme or system of law in which every person receives his/her/its due from the system, including all rights, both natural and legal. One problem is that attorneys, judges, and legislatures often get caught up more in procedure than in achieving justice for all. Example: the adage "justice delayed is justice denied," applies to the burdensome procedures, lack of sufficient courts, clogging the system with merit less cases, and the use of the courts to settle matters which could be resolved by negotiation. The imbalance between court privileges obtained by attorneys for the wealthy and for the person of modest means, the use of delay and "blizzards" of unnecessary paper by large law firms, and judges who fail to cut through the underbrush of procedure all erode justice. 4) an appellate judge, the Chief Justice and Associate Justices of the U. S. Supreme Court, a member of a Federal Court of Appeal, and judges of any of the various state appellate courts.' End of copy.
This is what our court system has deteriorated to, a jumble of deciding who the appropriate court should be; an equal value of what should be the relative importance of the court to what weighting factor should be assigned; and in my opinion, we have too many laws that equate to the same thing so that the justice system can no longer function correctly. Go back to what the Constitution and Bill of Rights say and start there.
From there you can see how these terms 'Social and Legal Justice dissolve and we would have what that court system would be.
