Fernando Cruz, a construction worker, came to the United States 12 years ago by walking across the border near Douglas, Ariz. He said that it was a different atmosphere then and that he wants to make sure he and his family can return to Mexico by plane if they must leave. Otherwise, he, his wife and three children face a three- or four-day bus trip.

"It's important if we have an emergency and need to go home to Mexico, we can go on the airplane," Cruz said. But he'd prefer to stay in the United States where he says his children can be better educated.

Of course he wants to stay in the U.S. so the taxpayers can continue supporting his three anchors. And of course they can be better educated here for..."free."
The entitlements and benefits are what's keeping them here.
As long as they've got the American taxpayers feeding them, housing them, giving them free medical care and eduacating their kids for free...they'll stay right here.
Don't finance them or feed them...they'll leave!

Fernando Cruz has been reaping the benefits of AZ, while a legal immigrant and/or US citizen hasn't had the employment. He's taken advantage of AZ and every federal tax dollar. I don't care about his children's education. He should have been a responsible person, before having children. Their education and welfare are HIS responsiblity in HIS country, not ours! Too bad Cruz hadn't used his knowledge of how to enter our country legally 12 years ago. He'd most likely be in our country legally! Go home!

if they are illegal, there is only one thing that needs to be considered - DEPORTATION.

We have a rampant illegal immigrant problem. Large sections of where I live, Washington DC, have become huge slums in the past five years.

These slums have had surges in the amount of crime (see links below). In Fairfax county, approximately 50% of all criminal activity is now by Latinos, many of which are here illegally.

Thanks to the way that the USA is run, no matter who comes across any border (not only hispanics) are entitled to their constitutional rights. Thats just the way the government has their rules. Why does everyone say that all illegal immigrants live off the government and never pay taxes. That couldn't be futher than the truth. If a mexican and a white girl both work at Mcdonalds fipping burgers they both pay the same taxes. Most immigrants are employeed in factories or resturants where they get a pay check that has taxes taken out of it as well. Also DSS will not allow illegal immigrants to recive medicaid, foodstamps or housing. However their US born children can, thats who recieves benifits just the same as the other americans. Why is it okay to try and blame all our problems on the immigrants and not take action for the irresponisble americans who are also to blame for the economical problems in the US? The american crack head who lives in the projects on welfare is just as responsible for the drugs and debts in the USA.

Hi Fed Up , glad to see you again. You still have my deepest sympathy having to live in the first state in America to give a drivers license complete with the North American Union logo and oversized photo for facial recognition in the NAU data base. A state with one of the highest fuel taxes in the US. A state that has a state income tax that is out of control. A state that has "ILLEGAL ALIENS" and "ANCHOR BABIES" causing a tremendous burden on the legal taxpayers. A state that places a fee on every thing they can. I have given this example and cited it in my letter to your governor when I told him everything I have said here and more. If I had filed the same tax return for 2007 in Georgia that I filed in NC, I would have received over $1400.00 more in a refund. To me that is a lot of money and I sure did not see anything in NC worth paying that much more in State Income Tax for.

North Carolina is a state that has some of the best folks I have ever worked with, but are totally ignored by the idiots in Raleigh who will not even allow a vote to come to the floor if it deals with getting rid of the invaders from Mexico and other countries. Yes, NC is a beautiful state from the mountains in the West to the waters and beaches of the Outer Banks. I spent several summers in the late 60's and early 70's at my relatives home on Lake Norman. I have spent lots of time in the mountains of NC. Nevermore. I will go elsewhere until things change in NC.

It is the idiots in Raleigh at the State Capital that hurts NC appeal to many. Especially those who want the "ILLEGAL ALIENS" and their "ANCHOR BABIES" gone.
