If they are legal immagrants, more power to them. Welcome. However if they are not legal, then they are criminals, and should be deported.

I truely understand why people want to live here instead of Mexico. The thing is:what if floods of people from China India, and other countries, instead of just Mexico, started flooding over our border? We here in the USA can not employ all of the people who live here now. We have 10% unemployment, with our current population, so with people constantly comming unchecked that 10% will only grow. Then our hospitals and schools as well as prisions, which are all overburdened, could easily get much worse.
Are the legal citizens living here now willing to see those systems colapse? I am not.

It is NOT a matter of race, but practicality, and survival.

Maybe if the US would put more pressure on the Mexican govt. to wipe out the drug cartels, their country would be a better place to live, and more Mexicans would stay in Mexico, and build it back up.

In recent Testimony of District Attorney John M. Morganelli before the House
Subcommittee on immigration, Border, Security and Claims he stated:

"Unfortunately, the majority of illegal aliens who are here are engaged in
criminal activity. Identity theft, use of fraudulent social security numbers
and green cards, tax evasion, driving without licenses represent some of the
crimes that are engaged in by the majority of illegal aliens on a daily
basis merely to maintain and hide their illegal status.
In addition, violent crime and drug distribution and possession is also
prevalent among illegal aliens. Over 25% of today's federal prison
population are illegal aliens. In some areas of the country, 12% of
felonies, 25% of burglaries and 34% of thefts are committed by illegal
aliens."

Give it a rest.

He knew he was illegal.

I'm so sick of the "I should be given citizenship after breaking the law because my spawn is defective".

Wilmer Maldonado, was gassed out of his home and arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement without any prior notice that he was wanted for deportation.

Without prior notice? Really?

I don't know how things are done in other countries, but here in the good old USA, law enforcement generally don't give advance notice when they're coming to arrest someone. Sounds as if he was found to be illegal and given a specific date to be gone back to (Mexico?) or face "forced deportation". Why else would you expect notice.

What I can't understand about our government (and id didn't just start in Big Ears administration)is why, when they have an illegal in custody, whether he/she has or hasn't committed a crime, do they let them go with instructions to return to court for a deportation hearing. Why not just hold them until the hearing is held and deport immediately if found to be illegal in the eyes of the judge? No, our bureaucracy lets them go and trust them to appear as directed(even my 5 yrs old grandchild could figure that out).

IMO, we need an "Arizona Immigration Law" passed in Georgia. Now here's one problem we will face. Can we get the dead-beat American, who don't have a job, to perform the jobs the illegals are performing? In my 39 yrs of public service, I have dealt with many of the poor, uneducated, lazy, unmotivated and unproductive imbeciles who only want a paycheck, not a job. Until our socialist government(again, this started way back in the 1940's, not during Big Ears administration)to quit rewarding laziness with welfare, food stamps, free school lunches, free health care(Peach Care, Medicaid), then they have no real motive to work for a reasonable wage. If you paid them $25/hrs, they'd still complain about something and go back into their lazy,thuggish, criminal environment they love so much.

To the Maldonado family: I wish you well on your journey back to Honduras. I admired your manners in thanking the American people for the last 10 yrs you have been here. I suspect you're not the normal illegal who thrives on our govt and preys on the people, both mine and yours. I hope you make application and can gain "legal access" back to our country. I pray for your success if this remains your goal. God will always be near. Just call on him for comfort and strength. Please, come back soon. Peace.

People on both sides of this issue should watch the show, "border wars" on nat. geo. The border police, are almost all hispanic, and they are always asked, "Don't you have sympathy for these poor people" They always answer the same way I do; Of coarse, we do. The facts are that they stop at most an estimated 20% of illegal drugs and other contraban comming over the border. We can NOT allow our country to be taken over by criminals. We have enough criminals here already, of all races.

The US used to be considered the horn of plenty. Right now we are hurting like the rest of the world. Maybe not as bad, but if left unchecked it will be.

People who have no real argument always say it's a racial thing. For me and most it is NOT.
