Can you imagine if this article were in sympathy to any other criminal group?
Let's pretend that this article were about the situation of families left behind due to the arrest of drug traffickers, murderers, burglers, or even pedophiles? We'd all say that it's part of the cost of breaking the law.
But noooooo, for some reason those who enter this country illegally and steal our identities aren't criminals. And when they get caught and leave their family out in the cold, the government becomes the bad guy for enforcing the law that they so easily broke. If a citizen steals another's identity and gets caught, they deserve prison, but if an illegal does the very same action and gets caught, the government becomes the bad guy.
It's amazing, the citizens of America have become 2nd class citizens while those loyal to another country get preferential treatment.

The key to this is the word Illegal. If you are in the USA illegaly you should be deported and maybe even marked somehow so we can track you. Maybe a gps implant so we know they where they are.This would allow us to stop illegals. Bush says they are working job Americans won't WRONG they are working for wages Americans know better than to accept. Corportate greed is what this is about. If we still had unions in the meat packing plants NO wetbacks would be able to get the jobs because they would pay enough for an AMERICAN citizen to live on. So I say kick the illegals out and lets get a union so Americans can once again get paid a fair wage for a days labor not let illegals work for a 1/4 of what an American should be paid.

Is it illegal to provide for your family? Is it against the law to do whatever is necessary to feed your children? No one is arguing that these people aren't criminals because they are doing something illegal just like traffickers and murderers. However, unlike traffickers and murderers, their crimes are necessary for survival. What would you do if your only choice was to allow your children to starve or commit a crime that is obviously not that big of a deal since where are over 10 million illegal immigrants in the United States and more being allowed in everyday?

5 million of our older Americans have not signed up yet for their
Medicare, Part D, drug plan------they are old and confused.
We are NOT going to grant them an extension.
However, 12 million illegal aliens are in our country and we are
going to allow them to stay, protest, procreate, receive support
monies, attend schools, avoid paying income taxes, have our
teachers take 300 hours of ESL(English as a Second Language)
training at our expense, etc.
WE MUST REALLY DISLIKE OUR OLD PEOPLE......
OR WE MUST REALLY LOVE TACOS!!!
If it ticks you off, pass it on!!
Don't forget to pay your taxes......
12 million illegal aliens are depending on you

So, if you need to get to work to feed your family and drive 100mph to get there, that's to be permitted?
If you are short on money and the heat bill is due, and you steal some money to get the bill paid, that is permissible, right?
Most thieves claim that they did their act out of desperation.
The plain fact is that those aressted in the raid actively and intentionally put their families welfare at risk by doing two things:
1.) coming here illegally
2.) using false documentation to gain employment
Had they not done those two things, they would not be in the position they are in. I am sympathetic for the families (inasmuch as I would be for any familiy whose members are incarcerated), but to rationalize their actions as necessary is fallacious. It was a combination of bad choices.

I am not in agreement with you on unionizing the labor
I'm not sure that if someone gets through school and their early life and only acquires enough skills to pick lettuce, I don't think they are entitled to $25.00 an hour.
The axe needs to fall hard on the companies that employ illegals. If it hits them in the wallet, then this will slow down dramatically.

This is the kind of thinking that chaps my hide. I have no sympathy for these illegal invaders or their families. We need to take care of our citizens first. For everything given to them, it is taking away from needy Americans. I would rather our poor citizens get this assistance in a heartbeat.
And lets forget the 10-12 million illegal alien number we have heard for the last 2 years. The census bureau just released their latest estimates, and they now say 37 million. Common sense will tell you that is a low number, because there is no way they can count illegal invaders. Do you really think they will come out of hiding to be counted? More the likely there are upwards of 50 million here.
