You broke the law....first and fore most. You took Americans job's....worst of all, you want what we have, for free. Listen my friend. This Country got like this through sacrifice, and believe me you, nothing erks Americans more than watching people invade this Country when so many died to make this Country great. The millions invading this Country do not love this Country. They only want to take from this Country. If Mexicans wanted to be American, they'd come legally, learn English, assimilate, and show a deep appreciation to this Country.

The Feds should concentrate on illegal gang members & other crimminals here illegally first. I believe the States should be able to Enforce the laws on the books too. This Lady seems to be the kind of illegal our country should give a Green card. She has worked hard & started her own business. That means she can support herself & her family. As long as she didn't commit fraud by getting any type of welfare while she was here, letting her stay would be the smart thing to do. The biggest problem illegal immigration brings is welfare costs. if you want to come to America you should be able to support yourself without citizens having to pay more & more taxes so welfare for illegal immigration keeps growing.

Mexico & The Scalp Industry

Between 1835 and the 1880s, the Mexican authorities paid private armies to
hunt Native Americans, paying per kill and using scalps as receipts. The
practice began when the Mexican government could no longer provide adequate
protection to its citizens from the marauding Apaches and Comanches.

Speaking of "Breeding Ground"

(CBS) It was 5 a.m. and CBS News national correspondent Byron Pitts is with
a woman who is nine months pregnant. She's rushed to a south Texas hospital
to undergo a C-section - a $4,700 medical procedure that won't cost her a
dime. She qualifies for emergency Medicaid.

She gave birth to a healthy, 8 1/2 pound baby boy - born in America. His
Mexican mother gave him an American name: Eliot.

Eliot is one of an estimated 300,000 children of illegal immigrants born in
the United States every year, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. They're
given instant citizenship because they are born on U.S. soil, which makes it
easier for their parents to become U.S. citizens.

That's because those babies can eventually sponsor their parents - when they
turn 21 years old.

It would appear that you don't know there's a difference between Immigrants and Illegal Aliens,let me help you out.

Definitions:

Alien, Immigrant, Illegal Alien, Undocumented Immigrant

These related terms are often used in deliberately confusing and conflicting
ways. Here is a set of definitions that will help you sort out the
difference.

IMMIGRANT: In popular usage, an "immigrant" is generally understood to be a
person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence.
Under this definition, therefore, an "immigrant" is an alien admitted to the
U.S. as a lawful permanent resident. The emphasis in this definition is
upon the presumptions that (1) the immigrant followed U.S. laws and
procedures in establishing residence in our country; (2) he or she wishes to
reside here permanently; and (3) he or she swears allegiance to our country
or at least solemnly affirms that he/she will observe and respect our laws
and our Constitution.

ALIEN: By contrast, an "alien" is generally understood to be a foreigner --
a person who comes from a foreign country -- who does not owe allegiance to
our country.

ILLEGAL ALIEN: An "illegal alien" is a foreigner who (1) does not owe
allegiance to our country; and (2) who has violated our laws and customs in
establishing residence in our country. He or she is therefore a criminal
under applicable U.S. laws.

The term "illegal alien" is used by U.S. citizens who believe that
non-citizens entering our country must comply with our immigration laws.

The term "illegal alien" is predicated upon U.S. immigration law
which requires foreigners entering the U.S. to comply with our country's
rules and laws regarding entry into, and residence within, our country.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT: The term "undocumented immigrant" is an oxymoron
(the parts conflict). An immigrant is synonymous with "permanent legal
resident." The old term for the document authorizing a permanent legal
resident is "green card." The term "undocumented" is derived from the
accurate term "undocumented aliens" who are often called "border crossers."
Proper terms are "illegal alien" or "undocumented alien" but not
"undocumented immigrant." Although not commonly used, the term "documented
alien" accurately refers to foreign nationals who have an unexpired
non-immigrant visa such as H-1B.

Most U.S. citizens do not use the term "undocumented immigrant"
and prefer, instead, the more descriptive and accurate term "illegal alien".


*The term "undocumented immigrant" is used by those who believe in
"open borders", i.e., non-regulation of foreigners entering into and assuming residence in the U.S., including even those foreigners who owe allegiance to a foreign government and/or who may intend harm to the U.S.

And ironically, it was mostly Americans who took up the offer. And, they (Americans) slaughtered and scalped mostly peaceful Indians. Ordinary Mexicans deplored the scalping of their fellow natives and didn't engage in such disgusting behaviors.

The use of "illegal alien" is rude, tacky and low-brow.

Funny that the illegals don't want to be identified by their general nature. Guess that they should have stayed in their country of origin rather than breaking our laws to come here are steal jobs and benefits meant for Americans.
