    Thanks Bill aptly put. With this blantantly racist approach to illegal immigration
    the only people who look illegal, are those who appear to be Latino.
    Great use of haiku stating the obvious with an artful question.

    I agree with Michael. The poem says it all. Nice work Bill!

    Bill, I like the way you use border state juxtaposed to the idea of illegal and how to define it, recognize it. It is the between, the border, between legal and illegal that is at stake and there really is no clear boundary to mark it, which your choice of words underscores well. A fine, thoughtful senryu. The poem has a good deal of poignancy.
