When did "illegal immigrant" become anyone who is hispanic or looks like it? This is basically racial profiling because it seems that it is only about hispanics. Wouldn't an illegal immigrant be anyone who is from another country (remind you, not just hispanic countries) that are here illegally? Hispanics are being targeted and there are other undocumented immigrants from other countries here just as well. If that being said, then why hasn't anyone else brought that subject up because they are doing the same thing that all of these "lawmakers" seem 2 be saying about hispanics!

Yes there are many illegals from all countries but the Mexico border crossings are the biggest threat to this country because they come over by the thousands. We are all immigrants from another country but hispanics come over and due to the numbers cost states and federal tax dollars in the millions to support them, free medical services, taking jobs from Americans, thinking they have rights here in America and protest burning and crapping on american flags while flying the mexican flag thinking we owe it to them.
Yep, it sure is profiling - so what?

I am all for sending illegal immigrants back to Mexico because of the financial burden. BUT if we are going to do that, we need to stop footing the bill for Americans (white and black) who are simply too lazy to work. Just because you were born here doesn't give you the right to drain the system. I would rather give benefits to a working illegal than to a lazy American. At least they aren't sitting on there a** whining and complaining because they can't get a good paying job sitting on there a** doing nothing!!!

We only need one law to end this problem. Go after the people that are the real reason this problem exists. The employers. They hire illegals because they don't have to pay them much, and because they can't complain. Fine employers $25,000 per illegal on their payrolls per day, and the problem goes away. No jobs, no illegals. If the greed merchants would pay a fair, living wage, they could find employees in this country. Don't want to hear the Americans won't work crap, properly motivated and fairly paid, Americans will still outwork most anyone else.

Since when is it your employers job to motivate you to do a job that he is paying you to do? I guess an honest days work for an honest days pay and providing for your family isnt enough motivation for you. Americans that don't want to work which are MANY work the system getting gov't benefits to which they think they are entitled to! Sorry, it doesn't work that way. How long has it been since Made in the USA meant something? Quite a few years.

I agree with you, what I meant by properly motivated is decent working conditions and a fair living wage. There are alot of people that are too sorry to work, and if we get rid of systems that reward such behavior, this could also go away. Having said that, I also know many people that lost their jobs to illegal workers for no other reason than cheap wages. These people showed up on time, and gave the honest days work. This is nothing more than Greed.

Get them FKERS out of the US... do the math at how many cockroaches there are... and convert that to JOBS.... the Job market would sky rocket OVER NIGHT. Good riddance, the whole lot of em needs to vamanos back over the boarder... Swim, Hop, Run, Skip, or Jump.... I dont care how them wetbacks go just leave. Its hard enough for us folks to find work cuz of them. And a side note, screw the "racially sensitive", you dont get anywhere in life by being sensitive.

I worked for a large company who hired hispanics. They pay taxes, work hard and are paid decent wages like everyone else. They have credentials showing their legal (social security card, etc.) "Last Screename Left" said it best!
