International Amnesty

Dear Mr. President,

I understand you have taught Constitutional law. I would ask, therefore, how you reconcile pending amnesty proposals for illegal aliens to Article 37:

Citizens of other countries and stateless persons living here are guaranteed the rights and freedoms provided by the law, including the right to apply to a court and other state bodies for the protection of the personal, property, family and other rights.

Citizens of other countries and stateless persons, when living here, are obliged to respect our Constitution and our laws.

Does the requirement to respect our laws apply only AFTER arriving here, and not to the manner of arrival?

Does being foreign born, and having a contempt for our laws, entitle one to preferential treatment, treatment not available to the law abiding?

Please speak, or write, frankly, but civilly. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan we can disagree without hating one another.
