POV at immigration article[edit]

Hi. Welcome to Wikipedia, but I noticed serious POV problems with your edits at the article on illegal immigration. Specifically, you misrepresented source material in order to make it sound more favorable to illegal immigrants. Please understand that Wikipedia is expected to remain neutral, and you should not seek to shape a Wikipedia page to your personal political views. Source material must be faithfully represented, not molded to a particular point of view. All are welcome to edit Wikipedia, but please take greater care with your edits in the future. If you must edit at a contentious topic that is likely to be the subject of disputes, please take extra care to ensure that your edits are not biased, and seek feedback from other users before making major additions to the page.

Some advice and some help[edit]

Remember always that Wikipedia is not a venue for original research; indeed, one argument for removal of an article will be that it contains original research and synthesis.

But for other research in the area you describe, for use outside Wikipedia, I strongly recommend "The Deportation Terror" by Rachel Ida Buff, which appeared in American Quarterly Volume 60, Number 3, September 2008. --Orange Mike | Talk 12:46, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
