Well, according to you and those of your ilk, they are stepping out of line by sending all their supposed illegals and you aren't doing a darn thing about it.

You're the clueless one. You're just misinformed and displaced from border affairs.

Getting rid of the illegals would lessen the financial burden of the Legal US citizens!! No more Medicaid, food stamps, or free prison housing to the illegals would definitely help balance the budget!!
Even though their children may be US citizens, they should return to their home country with their parents. The parents are the ones who chose this life for their child.

I doubt the even half of the applicant's will qualify. They simply do not want citizenship in this Country. The ones that do, want dual citizenship with their homeland Country including Asians. Identifying them and finding there true identity in the first place will be a feat. South Americans cannot and will not assimilate to American Culture, isn't in their blood. DACA applicants in many cases will not qualify do to lack of education, or criminal records. Immigration reform doesn't promise Mexicans any future here, it's only in their minds. And Obama's deceit.

If by legally you mean taking away the Native Americans' land and killing them then yes.

You have a point there. Our military did get a lot of practice bombing Vieques over the years. That may come in handy.

It was fortune that we had a place that we could bomb for 60 years and nobody would care.

Start packing your cardboard boxes, wetbks.

I feel sorry for you. I am an illegal and I have just graduated in mechanical engineering and I just started my graduate school in aerospace engineering. I am not going anywhere. I will get my citizenship through Obama and I will work and make more money than you do. Get a life
