I hope someone beats them to death first. If that doesn't happen, let 'em all starve to death.
Funny story.

You'll be right next to us for aiding and abetting felony theft of services from American citizens.

These illegal immigrants would have no need to pull this "hunger strike" stunt if they just had the integrity to take the steps to become legal citizens of our Country.

But then again, their lack of integrity, morals, and personal strength is what makes their Countries of origin the third world cesspools that they are.

Oh well, maybe these illegal immigrants should hold an "illegal activity" strike...

It's too late one of our own border patrolers was forced in killing one of Mexico's youngins. He was just minding his own business hanging out with friends. Yeah right. They were "stealing" their way across the border and started throwing rocks at our border patrol. Death happens when you break the law. Too bad so sad. Next!

A fake "die-in"??
That impresses nobody, especially Chuck. Give him the real thing!! "Drop dead for reform!!"
PS. There is a difference between a hunger strike and a sensible diet. Just because you passed on the greasy pork for a salad plate doesn't impress anyone either.
You might be onto something here. Now if we could just get 20 million illegals to "die" for reform, we could solve the problem. LOL!

I've heard of sit-ins and love-ins, but die-ins...that's just beyond weird. So this means I take it, that people are dying to get into America. Juke, crude maybe, but still a joke.

Curious...the one that died...legal or illegal because if that person was legal they were a nimrod to boot.

Perhaps we need to remove people like you. I've seen some of your posts...you'd rather drag America into the pits than stand by her laws.

What a bad joke. The illegal invader has no greater champion than Chucky and the rest of the swine in the US Congress. Let them starve. Good riddance. And ask yourselves, "Is revolution the solution"?

Funny how the papers never report they are breaking the laws of a country that isn't theirs by being here.In Washington are our law makers, and the President of the United States who swore an oath to uphold the laws and to protect this country from foreign invasion. Well I call it illegal invasion when millions and millions of citizens from another country cross our borders in violation of our laws, they are illegal. And when the people we elect decide to not only not do the jobs we elected them for, but try to give amnesty to these hoards of illegals in payment for votes, it is time to replace them. Makes no difference what party they belong to, time to get rid of them. If we American citizens allow them to give amnesty it will forever change our country, and not for the good. Look what they have done to their country of Mexico, look around you in your city's and see what they have done to the areas they have settled in. They make it a second Mexico.People who have come here the legal way for a better life can't believe we are allowing this to happen, and are afraid they will see this country become what they left behind . Hidden in the AMNESTY BILL, which American citizens have stated by a large majority they do not want is a clause allowing any illegal who is in this country when amnesty is granted the right to bring their family into the USA. So let's see anywhere between 12 to 30 million here, according to whatever report you read, now add at least 4 to 6 persons for their family, now are you ready for the over whelming flood into this country ?? We have 15 million legal American's unemployed, another 15 million under employed. While millions and millions of illegals work. I am tired of hearing jobs Americans won't do. That's a load and we all know it as we see wages go down to less then what they were 10/15 years ago as more and more illegals are hired after American's are laid off.It's time Americans stood up and demanded our laws be enforced. Obama and our elected officials should not be allowed to give amnesty to pay for the office of President. Obama and McCain both spoke to the group La Raza and promised to give amnesty in exchange for votes. So now the Democratic party stands to gain at least 6 millions voters if they can get it passed, well I call that selling America. Please stand up speak out before it's to late.
In 2009 there were 650,000 applications by U.S. "Permanent Residents" for immediate relatives to immigrate to our country.
There are already 30 million LEGAL foreign-born residents of the U.S., our country does not need any more immigrants.
The "Immigrant Rights" groups are trying to change the image of the Illegals in front of the Television News cameras at the demonstrations against the Arizona law they are staging:

When will the madness Stop! We need to Protect these illegal immigrants! SO let make ICE do their JOB and DEPORT all these poor illegal immigrants back to whatever country they came FROM. CONFISCATE ALL their WORLDLY POSSESSIONS and Sale their Possessions at Public Auction and use the Money to Help Deport more of these poor illegal immigrants Back to their Homeland Broke. That way it will discourage their Homeland People not to come to United States without PROPER PAPERS.

Lol, it's always fun to see how fast ignorance and unprovoked anger can spread. Just like every other ethnicity it's now the Latinos turn to come into a land where no ones gonna accept them, where it's somehow their fault that there no opportunity for them to make a legal living so they decide to work illegally doing things most americans don't want to do instead of making up all of the crimes committed. Every group were immigrants(especially italians, chinese, Negroes and the irish when they first arrived, in fact most europeans when they first arrived. No ones saying it's not a crime or that they're right, just simply saying think about what your family did before they were so called citizens.
