I really don't think any state has them any more! Just look at the local school playground at recess time, voila.

Yeah, but the 'human side' has another side- called costs we can not afford to pay or put into a budget without sinking our own nation for good; detriment for American citizens (over 20 million whom are out of work and this bill creates a hostile job market for them) you know the 'human side' for the citizens of this country??; and the bad precedence that rewarding lawbreakers creates.

You need to keep in mind that the profile of the average bush-davidian cult in the Republican shares a core of common beliefs. Besides a lower than normal IQ, they tend to agree amongst themselves that;

1. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of
homosexuals and Hillary Clinton

2. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad
guy when Bush's Daddy made war on him, a good guy when
Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush
needed a 'we can't find Bin Laden' diversion.

3. Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is
Communist, but trade with China and Viet Nam is vital
to a spirit of international harmony.

4. The United States should get out of the United
Nations, and our highest national priority is
enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

5. A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multinational drug corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

6. The best way to improve military morale is to
praise the troops in speeches, while slashing
veterans' benefits and combat pay.

7. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents
won't have sex.

8. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our
longtime allies, then demand their cooperation and
money.

9. Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound
policy, but providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMO's and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

10. Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are
junk science, but creationism should be taught in
schools.

11. A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense, but a president lying to
enlist support for a war in which thousands die is
solid defense policy.

12. Government should limit itself to the powers
named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

13. The public has a right to know about Hillary's
cattle trades, but George Bush's driving record is
none of our business.

14. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a
crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

15. Supporting 'Executive Privilege' for every
Republican ever born, who will be born or who might be born (in perpetuity.)

16. What Bill Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital
national interest, but what Bush did in the '80's is irrelevant.

17. Support for hunters who shoot their friends and
blame them for wearing orange vests similar to those worn by the quail.

They burn our flag and flip the finger to TV cameramen. They protest openly in front of government buildings. Their organizations like LaRaza and MALDEF get taxpayer money from our corrupt government, mostly against the taxpayers will. They fly our flags upside down and their houses look like junkyards. I'm not seeing any hiding at all. All I see is a blatant disregard for our laws.

The pro-illegals don't care about the human side of American citizens who have been negatively impacted by illegal immigration. All they give a damn about are illegal alien lawbreakers. Anti-American to the core!

A lot of news stations have been yelling about a new study that shows where illegals help the economy. If this is true how come California is sinking in debt because of the cost of taking care of illegals? The study shows that they pay a lot of taxes. How can the small amount they might pay offset the cost of their care? Millions of unskilled workers coming to America might be great for mowing lawns and manual labor at job sites however the cost of supporting their family in low income programs still is a loss. The schools are overloaded, the medical support programs can't maintain these illegals. California is a perfect example of this. Plus remember this the 10 or 11 million figure of illegal population is way off, closer to 30 million.

Don't forget too mention the approximately 80 hospitals that have closed. That 20-30 will triple within a year or so with chain migration.

The human side of the equation should be addressed by their home countries. The USA is a generous nation but that generosity ends when one takes advantage of a nation.

Amnesty will mean big sacrifices will have to be made by the American people. Do we really want to sacrifice for illegals at the expense of our own families? It makes no sense. This is just a corruption packed political issue.

They're not a likable culture. They are treated exactly the way they treat other's. And shadow's and amnesty...sorry. They're to uneducated too learn English, too uneducated to assimilate and very disliked by all cultures, not just the American Culture. Annoying us with desperate cry's for freebies, and everything else... Can't accept them even if they're shoved down our throat's.

Many illegals were the bottom feeders back in their own country so they came here and once here they wanted to remain as they were back home. A lot of them refuse to learn to speak English and instead try to change America to be like Mexico. If Mexico was so great why did they bring their self here? America does not need 10 to 30 million more unskilled workers and the welfare system is already full. We spend Trillions to defend a foreign country while our country is wide open and being taken over by illegals.

In 1732, James Oglethorpe was given a charter from King George II to create a new colony which he would name Georgia. This was located between South Carolina and Florida. to serve as a place where debtors in prison

People of European or Asian decent immigrated to the United States

people that could not support their family would come here for economic reasons
Europe soon became overcrowded
Poor farmers were in debt because of crop failures. It also caused them to starve
Because of their unemployment status
Immigrants looked for a place to live abetter life and they found it in America.

United States Immigration Before 1965
because the price of passage was steep, an estimated one-half or more of the white Europeans who made the voyage did so by becoming indentured servants. Although some people voluntarily indentured themselves, others were kidnapped in European cities and forced into servitude in America. Additionally, thousands of English convicts were shipped across the Atlantic as indentured servants.

there were also push factors that drove many to want to leave China. The most important factor was economic hardship due to the growing British dominance over China, after Britain defeated China in the Opium War of 1839-1842.

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
Tempest-tossed to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

That is why I question the numbers the government throws out, towns near me are covered with them. I live in the sticks and they are all over, one nearby town of 200 has 27 or so in it. Very few are working they get on state aid and wham they are set. The local Walmart looks like a border town and this area has no jobs, but we also have no border patrol. Several had gotton approved for section 8 housing, go figure!

Man you got that right, here in the hills you can't throw a dead cat without hitting a half dozen of them. The newspaper is full of reports of them for DWI, stealing, no insurance, fighting. If hanging with fat ugly women was a crime they would all be arrested. Once they spot a fat ugly welfare mom they stick to them like glue, free housing, food stamps, free medical, its like a cockroach infestation.

Exactly! That is the best description of the GOP & their corporate master that I've heard in awhile.
