Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, after 50 days of causing amok on the web, the guys and/or girls behind LulzSec have called it quits last night. After hacking into the systems of various Arizona law enforcement agencies and releasing countless internal documents, they published a statement on Pastebin yesterday, dumping yet another boatload of data on The Pirate Bay, and announcing their disbanding.

You mis-understand. It is not poor people crossing the boarder for a better life. It is cheap, no good employers that hire them. The employers only pay half or less what the job should pay. I still say it is a simple form of slavery.

I also don't feel bad for anyone in Mexico. They are a member of OPEC. If Mexico were to get honest people in charge they would have Americans sneaking across the boarder.

By the way, millions and millions of poor Mexican and Central American's have become legal citizens based on blanket policies that simply allow anyone in the country to be a citizen.

Only a small fraction of immigrants are from wealthy backgrounds.

I fully agree. This is modern slavery. They did the right thing in Spain when they gave papers to all the "illegal immigrants". Then they went after the employers and forced them to enforce the safety rules and to pay them according to their legal worker status. That is the democratic thing to do. Ousting them is definitely not democratic and should not be confused with democracy.
