Juan, I see that you and
thousands of other protesters
are marching in the streets to
demonstrate for your cause.
Exactly what is your cause and what
do you expect to accomplish

the border at night
with seven other friends.
Why did you come?
Juan: For work. I can earn as much

a year in

children can go to school free, if I
lose my job I will get Welfare,
and someday I will have the Social
Security, Nothing like that in

our immigration laws
when you came?
No! Why should I feel bad? I
have a right to be here.
I have a right to amnesty. I paid

Security and Green Cards.
How did you acquire those documents?
From a guy in

Did you know that those documents
It is of no matter. I have a
right to be here and work.
What is the "right" you speak of?
The right of all Aliens. It is
found in your Constitution.
I have read it, but I do not
remember it saying
anything about rights for Aliens.
Juan: It is in that part where it
says that all men have
Alien rights, like the right to
pursue happiness. I wasn't happy in
Mexico so I came here.
I think you are referring to the declaration of

unalienable rights ... Not Alien

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A
young patient sauntered into a medical clinic
Friday morning and got prompt treatment — a
tranquilizer dart and a quick trip back to the
wilds. But again, this patient was the
four-legged kind: a young black bear that was
probably hungry from a winter of hibernation.
"He did not have an
appointment," said Todd Sandman, director
of public relations for Presbyterian Health Care
The 125-pound male bear,
perhaps 2 to 3 years old, wandered into the
Presbyterian Medical Group gastroenterology
laboratory around 7:15 a.m., Sandman
The bear got in through an automatic door at the
lab, a stand-alone building off one the main
drags in Rio Rancho, north of Albuquerque.
"There were just a handful
of people there, before the time when it was
really open for appointments — I think a nurse,
perhaps a receptionist and a patient and
spouse," Sandman said.
"I think the person in the
waiting room was pretty surprised."
Everyone was safely evacuated, he said.
"Apparently, the bear was
very calm and retreated into a side room and
then further into a bathroom," said Dan
Williams, a New Mexico Department of Game and

is this fair?
So, you really don't want to

I just want my rights!
Everyone has a right to live,
work, and speak their native
language wherever and whenever
they please. That's another thing
we demand. All signs and official
documents should be in Spanish.
Teachers must teach in Spanish.
Soon, more people here in
will speak Spanish than English.
It is our right!
Jim: If I were to cross over the
proper documentation, what rights
would I have there?
None. You would probably go
to jail, but that's different.
How is it different? You said
everyone has the right
to live wherever they please.
Juan: You Gringos are a bunch of
land grabbing thieves. Now
has its rights. You Gringos have

is no free medical service,
schools, or welfare there for
such as you. You cannot even own
land in my country. Stay in the
country of your birth.
I can see that there is no
way that we can agree on this issue. Thank you for your
