Only a racist person with an IQ of 1 (one) would draft such an unclear, strange and stupid remark.

And I hope while he's at it he enslaves the white race, its what we deserve for our centuries of bigotry!

you know it's people like you pacifist that don't realize that the illegal people in this country do not pay taxes, that makes you and everyone else who pay taxes and this country struggle through the hard times we have now. If everyone put in their fair share "fair tax" we wouldn't have to put another number on the deficit counter.

They pay taxes every time they go in a store and buy something. They may not pay income tax, social security and medicare, but their employer is at fault for that.

"In His Name", I agree with Wounded and Tom. It is misguided people like you who do not think past the end of the week and end up handing over whatever country they live in to any old invader who comes along and asks, or not even asks, they just show up.

Listen to me: without a country to protect your rights, you will lose the right to worship as you see fit. No one will be around to protect you or your rights. Because you sold the rest of us out so you could be "nice" to the invaders, the rest of us won't stick around to help you when it finally dawns on you that you have made a big, big mistake.

Reading all of these posts just makes me wonder how many people out there feel so unsecured of themselves. The unemployment rate has always been there, illegals or no illegals. Also, the jobs are there, but U.S. citizens are so demanding of everyone and everything that they overlook good paying jobs because they feel they deserve more. And, from looking at this, unless you decided to misspell every other word in these posts, there are illiterate U.S. citizens, too.

You don`t seem to get it. No one wants the legal mexicans to leave. Just the illegal ones. Yes, part of the country used to be Mexico. The Mexican leaders of that time were infringing on the freedom of the people that lived here. If you will check I think probably half of the defenders of the Alamo were mexicans fighting Mexico.

As you all know, there is corruption, racism, bigotry, intollerance, and plain old hatred everywhere. The majority of the worlds population is just trying to survive. It takes all kinds to make a world. We currently spend BILLIONS of dollars each week trying to prevent a small portion of the worlds problems from affecting our way of life. There must be a better way. I say let immigrants come to this country just as they have since humans walked the earth. Historicaly immigrants have done the work that "Americans" have felt was beneath them or simply refused to do. Let them as well as the illegal ones already here apply for special citizenship which requires them to learn the language,and history, and requires them to work, and pay taxes at a rate much higher than natural citizens.(Freedom isn't Free. They can contribute to Social Security with lower and limited benefits, again helping to rescue a troubled government service. They can contribute to, rather than be a burden to, the federal budget. Most wage earners have the taxes deducted from thier paychecks, this means more money for communities to offset the problems that the illegals currently pose. No amount of money spen or effort expended will stop non americans from flocking to this country, we might as well profit from them instead of wasting money in a losing battle. That's my 2 cents.

Yes, the immigrants have been coming here for years and doing the jobs that need to be done. BUT, up until the last few years they came in by legal means and followed the rules to get in. There are still rules, and still legal means to get citizenship. Those who use them are still welcome here.

i am all for the legal hispanics to be offered every right as everyone else. But there are plenty of illegal hispanics that do not have any intention of getting citizenship. I worked with a girl whose husband was illegal and she said it was easier for him to cross the border if he was deported than it was for him to get his papers. Meanwhile he is working and not paying income tax. Granted his employer is at fault. But most of the time illegals can buy a fake SS card and employers don't know until they file their own taxes. Then when the illegals found out, they get another job and leave the employer holding the bag. They are given free medical care, free education and don't want to pay income tax. I wish the government would just make everyone pay only sales tax, then we would all be treated equally.

And then I would just LOVE to see what you "majority" of Americans will do when you have no one else to do your construction or pick your oranges or work in what little factories you have left. Just face it, you and people like you just want what you can't have while you can't have it. Say they were to deport them all as per your wish, then you wouldn't give a rats ass about the jobs that they once had even if they were practically begging people to take them.

I as well as my boyfriend both work at a pilgrims pride chicken plant.There is blatant racial bigotry everyday.Wetback run the entire plant.All the easy jobs are given to mexicans.If a mexican refuses to do a job instead of getting sent home it is passed off on a white or black.Let a mexican say a black or white did something and it is believed and changes will be made whole lines shut down if that be the case.Blacks and white are ingnored or sent home foe complaining.Some even suspended.Supervisors cuss people out in spanish and know they dont understand and refuse to speak english most of the time even on radios.Then fire and suspend people who did somethimg wrong out of not understanding.Only mexicans get supervisor jobs and thne they dont do shit.Just yell and talked messes up to people.Dont these companies realize they have dumbed them selves down and flushed their and that of their employees wellbeing down the toliet.
