Immigrants' Hunger Strike Ends With a Die-In

Jun 11, 2010 | Posted by: Agent of Chaos | Full story: cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com

For 10 days, a group of illegal immigrants had staged a round-the-clock hunger strike in front of the building in Midtown Manhattan that houses Senator Charles E. Schumer 's office, calling on him to take immediate action on a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants.

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.
And you are an a$$,the illegals rob,rape and steal in addition to breading like roaches.All you see is knocked up skanks pushing strollers and their bellies hanging.

“it's somehow their fault that there no opportunity for them to make a legal living so they decide to work illegally”

That’s right, they decided to do things illegally. They are to blame for their situation. Let them starve to death.

“think about what your family did before they were so called citizens.”

They had an education, marketable skills, trades or professions before becoming citizens. They proceeded with the immigration process legally. They also had to prove they were immunized against certain diseases. They learned English and assimilated into American culture. By the way, they had all their documents in order. They did all the things that illegals can’t bother themselves to do.
Sure, they were disliked as all groups were upon entering this country, but they quickly assimilated and contributed to this country and didn’t stand around looking for handouts at taxpayer expense. I hope you can understand why illegals are hated and that’s why there are many of us who could care less if they die or are deported.
