It is unfortunate that some immigrants get themselves into trouble which affects all of us. I wish most people out there could feel stressful and hard life is for undocumented immigrants. Some go through all sorts of abuse and cannot report to the police because they are afraid to be deported, just by hearing the word "police". A typical example occured last dawn. A 20 year old African girl run into me with a swollen eye, bruised and partly naked after being beaten by her sister's husband for participating in religeous activities. He beat up this young girl and dragged her out of the apartment and smashed her phone in fear of her calling the cops. Now this girl cannot go to the hospital for check up because she has no form of valid ID nor does she has anywhere to go to because she has no relatives here in the US. It's saddening to see young innocent people experience abuse in all forms just because they are undocumented. Even with all hopes lost, she still believes in her American dreams and is looking forward to the immigration reform bill.

If a person chooses to be a criminal then they have to accept the consequences of their decisions. In the mean time honest Americans are being victimized by those you are defending. How about sympathy for the victims rather than the criminals?
If the story you related had happened in her home country would things be any different?

Never once did you show any regret for the Americans who lost jobs, or even lives to illegals. What about those whose lives have been upended by the illegals who have stolen their ID's? You make it all about yourselves, with no regard for the Americans who have suffered because of the illegal infestation. Sorry, our compassion has been trampled on by millions of lying, thieving interlopers.
