Exactly.

This is just another reason to let ICE do what it is suppose to do.

X-Ray and Shoreliner -- Shame on both of you fools, at least one of you is a conservative who should know better. Legal immigrants -- and a great many illegals using phone SS numbers -- are paying into Social Security. That would be OUR Social Security. And if either of your are retired, they are paying YOUR Social Security, because as you well know it's paid by current contributors, not the bogus "trust fund." They are paying income taxes to Washington and Hartford and they pay ridiculous property and business taxes to Hartford and New Haven. They are sending money to their families out of the NET. They are investing in their kids. And they're voting where the laws permit them to. Democracies are entitled to elect left- and right-wing nuts alike.

Congratulations and welcome to the opportunity available in my country. Thank you for doing the jobs and running the businesses some of our own "entitled" citizens are too proud or too lazy to do. Thank you for contributing with the taxes you pay. Ignore the nativist pigs. Not all conservatives hate latinos. Vayo con Dios.

This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for ICE to seize and deport these illegal aliens!

Just wondering how much of the money being sent back comes from the Connecticut wealfare system?

STFU you ignoramus. Most of the people there are legal. By the way, what's the problem with these people sending money abroad? The U.S. does it wholesale, sending billions in military aid to places like Israel.

Would it be possible for you to give us your mailing address? I have a clue here and it is quite obvious by your post you don't have a single one.

Didn't they lay off union workers in New Haven, you know, safe the haven city?

What kind of person advocates for a person who breaks our laws and then defends them by saying they are doing jobs no one else will? That may have made the slightest of sense last year, but with our economic problems and the number of adults competing for the summer jobs normally done by high school students, not one informed person would say that now.

Most of us are "dirty immigrants" (unless you are Native American). You should really remember that not too long ago it was some English blue-blood New Englander whining about the dirty Poles, Irish, Italians, Portuguese, Scots, etc, which were ruining the economy, sending money home, forming unions, stealing jobs, etc. It is easy to ignore history or see it in perspective if you are ignorant, which some of the posters appear to be.

America is built on immigrants coming in and working for the lazy and then displacing them, it is an age-old tradition.

If you held up your ancestors to the standards (like taking low paying jobs from "Americans") you are belching out here you would not be an American as they would have deported your forefathers!

To all you immigrants, not all "Americans" are close-minded bigots whom don't want anyone to have the opportunities that they (and their ancestors) were allowed!

God Bless America!

Do you think "Native Americans just appeared in North America.They had to come from somewhere regardless of how long ago it was. My grandparents, perents and myself were all born here. You call yourself what you want, I call myself a full blooded American. My grandparents never sent money back to any country (because this was their country and they were living here). Also, just because we may differ from your view doesn't mean we are closed minded biggot. Typical liberal vomit.

We (Americans) have to be the dumbest people on this planet. We let illegals vote in elections in THEIR country. Hope we didn't have to give them rides to the polls in taxis just to make us feel good. Keep it up folks.....just another waste of OUR tax dollars.

Migration is the movement of people to a new area when no poltical boundaries exist. As in Native American population migration to N. America over Bering Strait land bridge theory.

Emigration and immigration is the migration of people when political boundaries exist. You emigrate from a country and immigrate to a country (they differ on your point of view).

Thus, Native Americans could not immigrate to the USA as there was no country there. Were they expected to file papers with a bear at the border?

To all you illegal immigrants out there, leave! Comeback when you apply in an appropriate way!

To all you "Americans" out there. Thank God these type of fools are in a minority.

Seriously, what they do with their money is their business. They pay taxes and that's all that should matter.

As long as immigrants to the U.S. are LEGAL, they should be able to vote. My concern is how many illegal immigrants fraudulently voted in the presidential election. (Thank you very much ACORN.)

Thank Israel for keeping the 14th century, primitive Islamo-terrorists away from our borders.

They are illegal and you can bet they are using STOLEN SS Numbers. Ice has been stopped from doing their job by A@@Ho#e Napolitano and the San Fran Nan who said ICE raids on illegal alien lawbreakers are UNAMERICAN.. Who do these two represent? I thought it was American taxpayers, but I guess I'm wrong, because they appear to be protecting illegal lawbreakers, and not Americans. Something is wrong with that and my friends and I find it very upsetting. I am not a racist pig and I do welcome people from other countries if they follow the path to citizenship in the legal way.No Vaya con Dios here Amigo-- Its pug mi hone!!
