they don't believe in abortion but they do believe in using your tax dollars to support their offspring and themself after they have them. it is they who are the abusers of the citizens. the federal government aides them. cheap labor.

Obi, I know in a perfect world, that would be the case. Without sounding like a xenophobe, hear me out. However, the people in question aren't even loyal to this country. Think about that. 99.99 % aren't even familiar with our Constitution, so how can they aspire to what we do? They really don't want to assimilate and the one kid wants to get one of our daughters pregnant(out of wedlock, no doubt). do you think he would support said child like a real man? I don't.

So God given unaleinable rights stop at the border? We are a country of laws, people should not break those laws. If we don't like the laws, then we need to lobby our elected officials, and change those laws. Rascim is not the answer to the problem. I do support Arizona's anti illegal immigration law, the Fed's aren't doing their job, so it's up to the state to enforce the laws. I wonder though, what scenario we would be going through, if our economy was booming, and everyone had jobs right now? Just remember, that the illegals didn't approve the bailouts, the illegals didn't shoot down the Audit the Fed bill, and the illegal immigrants didn't put us in two undeclared, unconstitutional wars. The illegals also didn't force people not to go out and vote. Just because life isn't perfect right now, doesn't make it right to spew hatred towards people you don't even know.
