not many citizens support illegal aliens. usually family or employers,no one wants to reward criminals for crimes well done.

other see citizenship as up for sale as do the supporters of illegal aliens.

Nancy Pedro described the "challenges" she faces daily as the mother of "two undocumented children and one citizen."
Even that struggle, Mrs. Pedro said through a translator"

You just can't make this shot up! She and her brood should be deported immediately. Oh, and on the way out, tell the Sri Lankian that getting good grades does not a citizen make. Vamoose! Pathetic!!!! The biggest joke was the people who were holding the signs in Spanish! Haven't they gotten it yet, that's the biggest turn off. Oh well, I guess they just crossed the border.

We have immigration laws now that aren't enforced.

What's going to be different about the new set of immigrations laws that will get me to expect that they will be enforced?
