Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column:
Eva Longoria: Desperate For More Immigration
In Guzzardi's article about Longoria, the pampered
Hollywood star and immigration activist laments the "hardships"
of illegal aliens and offers the following opinion:
"It's an exploitation

support them once they're here.
- Their language:
If Longoria thinks that Mexicans leave their
language behind, then why must I
press 1 for English?
- Their life:
Metaphysically speaking, it's impossible to leave "your
life" behind. You live your life wherever you
religion: This is an odd one. The last time I

they have left their country behind. That's what
happens when you leave your country. Is Longoria

Mexico and carry it into the U.S. with them? That

I thank Ms. Longoria
for her remarkable insights. Now she can go back to her
elitist schedule of
sipping cocktails, getting her
hair done and calling her publicist.
In the meantime, the rest of us will return to our 9

Longoria supports so much.
