Are "legal" or "illegal" aliens complaining? This affects my opinion on the topic.

He's just discriminating against the people," said Avila. "He's calling people, who are just trying to make a better life for themselves, narcotraffickers. That's not right."

Bank robbers try to make life better for themselves when they rob and bank.

So does that make it right? I think not.

Illegals are robbing American taxpayers blind.

I really don't see a difference.

Illegal is illegal. The law is the law...plain and simple.

Why do illegals feel they are above the law in this country?

It's not growing hostility toward Latinos in this country. It's total exasperation with illegals. Do we care if you're unhappy with it? Nope. Take your marbles (illegals) and go home.

If they are illegal and leeching off of our governments programs that were originally intended for AMERICANS, then he is completely right on the nose. They (illegal) aliens are nothing more than thieves, scam artists, and greedy leeches who purposely commit fraud by having their so called anchor babies.

They can complain all they want, what is Mexico going to do, send their Army across the Rio Grande just like they did in 1846? It's just a big clown show there in Mexico City.

But, the illegals aren't riled up enough to leave???

And, Mexico isn't riled up enough to tell the ILLEGAL invaders to come home????

Then, they really aren't riled up.

If they don't like it, they ALWAYS have the option of leaving----before they are FORCED to leave through the numerous new laws that are being passed throughout the states.

Yeah, they need to get pi@@ed off at their OWN GOVERNMENT and quit trying to make demands here in the USA where they are residing ILLEGALLY! I'm fed up with it all, the costs of healthcare, public assistance, jailing their criminals, their drug trafficking, etc; etc. The list goes on and on. DEPORT THEM ALL NOW!

It is exasperation and anyone here illegally needs to leave. We cannot care for the entire world until we can care for our own.

We need legal immigrants. Illegals are a drain as a whole.
deport but jail first

They should just leave and teach us a lesson.
