Illegal is something that only partains to real americans. The rest get to do what they want and we make that legal. This system is getting worst every day.
Its sickening. These liberals have no conscience or soul. Anything for a vote! Political gain is their only concern.

You know it, I know it, and they know it "Biggest Loser". Yet, those freebie given Libs do know how to buy the souls of the freebie-taking losers that you & I pay for. Once those folks get on the government teat, they tend to stay there demanding more & more.

Its a crying shame what these liberals are promoting & doing to this country. Our founding fathers are rolling around in their graves over this lunacy!

What benefits have you earned? When is the last time you worked a full time job? If earning your keep was the criteria for citizenship you still wouldn't be a citizen. You should just say thank you to the rest of us who support you. You should say thank you to the illegal immigrant who works so that you don't have to You owe us all. My time to watch TV and eat will come come quite a bit later in life than yours did. Your generation has seen to that!

I wonder, Mr. Sanchez, if it were Canadians sneaking over the border in huge numbers and expecting support, medical care and an education at our expense, would you be so cavalier?
I said that I prefer a country that people try to sneak into. The operative word is "try". The federal government, under President Obama, has increased spending on enforcement along the southern border to $18 billion per year, which is three times as much as what is spent on all other federal law enforcement efforts combined. That, along with a struggling economy that makes jobs scarce (the Republican contribution to the effort), has reduced undocumented immigration to levels that are lower than at any time since the 1960's.

By the way, you make a foolish mistake in drawing the wrong conclusions from seeing my surname. My ancestry and heritage is entirely European with the exception of my great-grandmother who was a full-blooded Cree Indian. Her son did immigrate over the Canadian border from Montreal, and earned his American citizenship by dint of serving in the U.S. Army Signal Corps during WWI where a dose of mustard gas damaged his lungs leading to his early death. He did, however, have a daughter who grew up to become my mother.

Even postulating Canadians "sneaking over the border in huge numbers" is an absurdity that I am still laughing about, but I am grateful for at least one individual Canadian having come to this country.

No Sir, what happened was they forgot to close it.
No system, new or old, will work until the border is closed and states are allowed to enforce the laws.
Please allow me to direct your attention to Article I, Section 8, clause four of the Constitution of the United States, which endows the Congress of the United States with the power: "To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States."

This makes immigration and naturalization the exclusive province of the federal government, and combined with the Supremacy Clause in Article VI, binds the states to accept and enforce, to the degree that they do, federal law.

Your point argues that the federal government has the right to make the naturalization laws. I see nowhere where it says they have the right to ignore it.

Actually it was quite nice. A little girl with learning difficulties who I have been working with for several months got her first A ever on a spelling test. She hugged me and said thank you. I am really proud of her but the best part is that she is proud of herself.

Plus nobody coughed, sneezed or puked in front of me today so all in all, it was a pretty good day.

Thanks for asking.

That is nice. Let's be real here. It's not a full time job. If someone had puked you would not have cleaned it up. The hard work is always a job for someone else. Have you seen who cleans the school at night?

The point is you don't want to work very hard. Unfortunately, there are too many Americans just like you. That's why illegal immigration is not discouraged to the extent you would like it to be. As I've said before you are the problem. You know most the women cleaning the schools at night in both Dist 122 and 210 are not born in this country. They commuted 2000 miles to get a job you couldn't be bothered to do. It's not silly, it's sad.

Not buying it.

I do not know the women and men who clean in Dist 122 and 210 because I do not work for that district which should come as quite a shock to someone who thinks he knows everything there is to know about me. If they are legal then good for them. If they are not, then I have an issue with the employer.

Where I work, the amazing maintenance crew is comprised entirely of hard working Americans, you know, those people you claim do not exist. It might also surprise you to know that early in my life I worked maintenance to make college money. Tough job but I was up to it and it was a stepping stone to a better life.

You seem to think that illegals do the dirty work because no one else will. Maybe they do it because as illegals, it is as far as they can go.

Besides, the entire idea is irrelevant to the economic disaster we face regarding illegal immigration. Your argument is nothing more than a "but, but, but" that has nothing to do with the issue.

I see the reality of the situation EXACTLY as Appalled's hero Ronald Reagan did when he granted amnesty to illegal aliens. The brown people will rule this country in 40 years. They want it more and will work harder for it.
