Most of them came here legally, but they hung around on these expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years. Now, compare that to Blockbuster; you are two days late with a video and those people are all over you. Let’s put Blockbuster in charge of immigration.

A Crisis of Faith, an American dilemma
This is a film presentation in association with the White River Institute, set for 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Eagle Library. This is not aligned with any specific religious belief, this film will take us to a deeper level of what it means to be truly human. Spirituality means many things to many people. In “A Crisis of Faith,” theologians and authors address the state of spiritual crisis the West finds itself in. There is a clear danger in the discrepancy between the rate we in the West have grown technologically vs. spiritually. This film looks at this chasm as it attempts to move us out of the intellect and create an experience through the use of powerful imagery and soundtrack as a backdrop for the speakers.
