Our system is ripe for abuse. You have to be politically correct up here. It hits the fan over every little thing.

They should also send back everyone who is having an illegal alien spawn in a US hospital. They should also send their country of origin the bill for the childbirth.

And don't stop at the current crop. Since the 1920's millions of people have entered the country illegally through Canada. Let's identify them and round up their "illegal alien spawn".

Like it or not these so called "illegal aliens" are already here spreading their roots... Whether you deport them or not as their family grows here in the U.S the more the chances are of them becoming citizens some day... No matter what you do the Latino population here in the U.S keeps growing by the yr...
Latino has got nothing to do with anything. By the third generation in America, the future generations will be as Americanized as the offsping of yesterdays immigrants have become. They'll be English only speakers, educated, upwardly mobile and chasing the same dreams as everyone else. Most will marry or procreate with someone outside of their ethnicity and roll their eyes as Grandma and Grandpa thump their chests about being Latino, or Mediterean, Slavic, Celtic, Asian, etc.
If Latinos think that they're any different, than they're only fooling themselves. It will be the generations of their own offspring who crush their dreams of Latino's taking over America for those who are foolish enough to think that's even possible.

If you were as compassionate as you portray yourself, you would volunteer to escort these intruders back to their countries. After you help them get settled in and make sure they get off to a good start, you might even consider staying there because they're such better people than Americans.

All of us are immigrants some how.
Are they "immigrants"?

What the difference between an immigrant and someone who has overstayed their visa or crossed the border illegally to buy firearms?

If I get stuck for three days at an airport in Mexico City, and rent a hotel room, and I an immigrant?

Mexico deports roudy Spring Break kids all the time. Where do we draw the line?

I mean, at what point does someone "officially" become an "illegal" immigrant?

The more people you deport the more people going to come in the US, their are a a ton of ways to clear the problems we have and the problems are not just cause by immigrants... Americans go to these countries and bring them here to work for a little to nothing...so at the end of the day they have gotten promises and nothing in return. I do not agree with breaking the law. But if your going to bring them here and under pay them give them some health insurance. One problem solve. Ok so deport them if the are a criminal that I agree with.

Personally I think that children conceived by American parents during Spring break in Cancun, Mexico should be entitled to dual citizenship.

That guy who produces the Girls Gone Wild videos has probably fathered a lot of children in Mexico, which is convenient for him, because he may need a place outside the US to lay low for a while.

Every illegal alien is a criminal. That is an undeniable fact. You support illegal aliens therefore you support criminals. You also support the exploitation of labor by those that employ illegal aliens and they are also criminals.
We are not discussing the work that immigrants do. The discussion is about illegal aliens and the jobs they do are often done by American citizens and immigrants when honest employers hire them and pay a decent wage along with all of the other costs associated with employing Americans and immigrants.
I am not sure what you mean by the statement “You have you Own killing people all the time.” Perhaps if you pay attention in school you will learn how to express yourself in a way that others can understand and you will be able to communicate in an adult manner some day.
I have never refused work “dirty jobs” and I used the money I made from doing "dirty jobs" to educate myself and now I do not have to work dirty and minimum wage jobs. I have worked harvesting hay, cleaning offices, landscaping, bussing tables and construction. Name just one job that Americans or immigrants won’t do but an illegal alien will.
I do have to agree that criminals are criminals no matter where they come from. I just do not support criminals just because of where they come from like you do.

well back up Hun, if you dirty you well good for you. I'm more educated than you know... And for your information you have to understand That if the Americans wanted to pay a good salary to citizen of the United States they would. Americans help to keep people here illegally than anything else. Yes they cross the borders, but trust and believe that at the end of the day we are all at fault.. I work in the Health care profession and a lot of time come in for interview and at the end of the interview they say the job is too hard. So if you are an outstanding hard working individual good for you. Your opinion of immigrants are just not understanding. Wouldn't you want someone to give you a chance at life. And again I don't condone breaking the law but would u want a chance to have a good life if not a great life. We can't all be quick to judge people. And to close this out you have more immigrants cleaning office, farm work and a lot more. You might do it all but not everybody is YOU.

Again you are just making stuff up. Unlawful presence is a civil violation. It is not a criminal offense.

Of course you know this well, but you still just spread lies because you have nothing else.

Go ahead. Feign outrage, deny you made your post and change the topic.

If you have more education that is apparent in the way you express yourself then that is sad. The fact that you work in healthcare is down right scary. I know a lot of healthcare workers. In fact there are several in my family and I have heard some horror stories about some of the minimally trained staffers that are doing jobs that professionals used to do and still should be but that is another topic.
You claim you do not condone breaking the law yet in your posts you support people who do. Your assertion that illegal aliens do jobs Americans and immigrants won’t do has been disproven time and time again. You can repeat the propaganda you have been fed butt it will not make it true. You are right that there are a lot of lazy/criminal minded people in this country but they would not be lazy if the government did not make it so easy. Legalizing millions more people so they can join the ranks of the American lazy makes no sense.
