I don't hate anyone, but if you're here illegally... you need to leave and come back the CORRECT way! File the proper forms, get your green card or work visa; not fair that some people do it the correct way, but just because they "look illegal" they get hassled. I'm so damn tired of them protesting that they broke the law, but they should not have to go back or go to jail. And all this while they chant about how much they love their home country and wave that country's flag; then go the hell home!

Everyone is welcomed in America, but we are in a post 9-11 world and there is a reason for the procedures one must go through to get to stay here and use government resources. And just because you're an illegal that pays taxes doesn't change the fact that you still broke a many laws, probably several laws since the company you work for it committing a crime and someone approved housing and got you an ID.

i think that yeah, many have been doin the wrong thing, but its sooo easy to judge these people when we know that we were born here and never had to suffer what they have!! my parents are hispanic and yea they came the "right way" and i've judge the other who didnt do it like dat but the times i've been back to where they are from, i finally understood why they are here and the reason why they did it like that. i've been witness of the hunger and poorness of many and i admire the courage of them to risk their life and their barvery and guts that people need to actually cross that border, i want my people here, but i want the ones that want to work, that are eager to be better, not those idiots that just come here to be a gang member. so, please think a lil bit, and don't be ignorant because, the comments here come from ignorant people, if YOU had the option to came here on a plane, relaxed drink some soda, or to come walking your butt off in that dessert, riskin your life and being affraid that you'll get caught, which one would you chose?? think and please, don't be ignorant, beacause this land isn't rightfully yours in the first place!!

You say you discriminate against people who come here illegally? Do you know how your family came to this land?
America belongs to the brothers and sisters of my ancestors. The white man Spanards and Negros have desicrated our once beautiful land and garnished it with fences and signs... Our once fertile soil burned by ashpalt.
And the call it the land of the free.
You are an ignorant fool and I can only hope that one day your eyes will be open.

Bottom line, everyone here illegally should go back where they came from. There is a house across the street over loaded with them... and they drink everyday! Tonight one was urinating on the sidewalk in front of my home and theirs. I have no pity for them. My ancestors came into this country legally! They certianly didn’t go around committing crimes, raping woman, burglarizing homes, drink and drive and killing innocent home grown AMERICANS! I have seen this myself first hand. This isn't a story passed from one person to the next. These things are really happening and these ruthless and uneducated people pose a great deal of danger to our communities in the United States. What is wrong with our goverment and what about the communities we live in. Our elected officials have not stepped up to the plate and dealt with this issue. Enough is enough they have to GO!

Look, I don't care if it's ME who's "suffering"!^%&* () it; it's MY problem; not society's! Get OFF your duff and do what's right! We have NO sympathy for you. It's funny; our own CHILDREN would have to suffer before you did. You think YOU deserve special treatment. GO HOME to Mexico or wherever you came from and get some humility and responsibility why don't you?

You are so ignorant you have swallowed activist's lines hook and sinker. You are baited and caught.

You are also the most demanding, arrogant whiner I have ever ran into.

Man if I caught a person urinating in my front yard I'd call the cops. That is thoroughly disgusting behavior.

I agree. Preferential treatment of this group of folks is totally UNACCEPTABLE.

If it were me, I'd be arrested for indecent exposure and raked over the coals on the night's news!
