    I’m sorry but Immigration is no business of the churches in this country, that is why our founding fathers put a separation of church and state in our constitution. Leave the goverment business to the goverment.Also the majority of americans polled do not want any amnesty for illegals.

    Annually, on the 13th of November, people from all walks of life congregate to celebrate World Kindness Day. It is a time to look beyond us, step out of our comfort zones and emphasize the importance of humanity. It is a chance to offer quick loans from the heart, without thought of return. There’s too much blessing in giving, especially those coming from the heart! Many people nowadays have a tendency to make excuses not to help one another. Race, culture, sex, gender, religion, social class, and even convenience have been a source of justification commonly used. Nonetheless, once you choose to take the time to give a helping hand, whether through money or time, big or small, you’ll find out how easy it is. You can’t imagine the rewarding feeling you get when you help restore hope and happiness in another person’s life. Maybe you don’t have the money to donate to a charity, but would like to contribute some time. Websites like http://www.actsofkindness.org are a great source for ideas in that case. On the other hand, if you really do not have the time and want to donate money but don’t have the liquidity at the moment, quick cash loans can help you create the help someone out there might be desperately in need of. Let’s make this World Kindness Day a special occasion no one will ever forget. How quick loans have helped many during difficult times represents the way we should show acts of kindness.

    An immigration reform is rather important, as for me. I can even say that it should be done earlier. Well, illegal immigrants became a problem for the government, though, for some businessmen they seem to be cheap workers. But still, it is the breach of human rights. They are the same people in any case and should be defended. They work for a low salary and have no rights to apply for installment loans.
