Illegal immigration is a hot topic, particularly in Southern California. Listen to talk radio, and you're bound to hear the hosts and callers venting their feelings on the subject--pro and con.
Dr. Laura, as it turns out, has strong opinons about illegal immigrants. I found that out a while back when I listened as she advised a distraught caller, a man whose wife's sister was engaged (or married--I can't recall) to an illegal immigrant.
"I'm worried about my sister-in-law," the man told Dr. Laura. "What if the authorities find out?"
Dr. Laura's advice?
Turn the guy in to the INS.
"I don't see how I can do that," the caller said. "My sister-in-law will be devastated. My wife will never forgive me. This could ruin my marriage."
Not a problem--at least for Dr. Laura. What was more important? she demanded, chastising the caller. His obligation as a citizen of his country or his personal situation?
"I guess you're right," the caller said.
