Whatever. You broke a law. You knew it was wrong, but you decided to take the risk and hoped you wouldn't get caught.

Well, you got caught. Time to pay the piper. STFU and take your lumps. If you truly don't want to be separated from your family, take them with you.

Some of them didn't ask to break the law so there is no reason to be so nasty a lot of them been here since a child and that was stupid to tell them take there family that would be a crime too.... so before u speak u should hear the other side not all of them should stay but the ones who try to make a honest living to take care of the kids they have here that are citizens...

Let me put this plainly:

I could not care less about the sob stories of illegal aliens.

If they had never come, they would have no kids here. It's a pathetic attempt to attach themselves to the country, by dropping an anchor baby. In my opinion, the kids and the parents are not US citizens and I hope we address the great wrong of automatic birthright citizenship soon.

Short of that, why don't you go home and work on making it a better place?

So let's go back 50 or 60 years! Maybe even less or more! Your ass should not be ether so get out and take your family with you as know you not a Native Indian American! Native Indian Americans are the only people that should here! Think before you start to judge and if you don't know your own family history at lest learn about the one you live in!

The Obama impeachment is overdue. It's beyond me why nobody has organized a massive rally to show this president that We control government not the other way around. Oh and by the way I am Hispanic and I dont condone rewarding those who break the law. A nation that doesn't enforce its laws is no nation at all.

Lot of them??? You mean all of them - at least that's what they claim. All these illegals have learned to claim their parents brought them here when they were an infant and you dumb liberals believe them even though they never have a shred of evidence.

You're wrong, actually. Native Americans are just the group that has been here the longest. Their ancestry traces back to Northern Asia. They are not indigenous. They migrated here and displaced whatever culture was here before them.

Colonists came here - there were no laws to prevent them from staying, so questions of legality were and are irrelevant.

Mexico declared war on the USA and lost. Mexico sold the USA all their useless desert land to the north and took the money for it. Done deal, legal. No land in the USA belongs to Mexico or Mexicans. That's just propaganda designed to try to justify the illegal invasion of the USA by Mexico. You need to study your own history better and not the La Raza variety. It lies.
