Teen immigrants want 'illegal' dropped from immigration debate

Oct 10, 2011 | Posted by: Agent of Chaos | Full story: charlotte.news14.com

"Illegal alien" is the proper legal term for those that are here in violation of US immigration law.

The 21st annual Latin American Festival in Charlotte featured live music, local business offers, and lots of food. It was also the venue for an effort to change the way people discuss illegal immigration.

Loan Tran, a student activist with the Latin American Coalition's youth group United 4 The Dream, said they're helping a national campaign called "Drop the I-Word."

Maybe if you would become at least LEGAL...... it might help solve the problem in the US wouldn't it. YOU'RE a big part of the problem now aren't you.
It cost alot of money to become legal. Many american lawyers take advantage of poor undocumented workers. Being a citizen would not really help me, I would take it if amnesty were given.

I work and have a good job, matter of fact I worked 10 hours overtime yesterday and made $140, I would not be able to make that money in Mexico.

Now's a great time to arrest the employers of the illegals... in fact a better time now than any. The illegals steal the Social Security numbers and the ID's of AMERICAN CITIZENS so they can ILLEGALLY work... and the EMPLOYERS ILLEGALLY HIRE THEM. American Citizens and the Legal people are the ones that need the jobs in this country.
Brian... you tell me... WHEN is a GOOD TIME to arrest the employers of the illegals?
You should not arrest employers, they cannot find americans that will do the job we do.

You say you would become part of the Citizenry if Amnesty were given to you.

Question. If you were given Amnesty... and an illegal were then to steal YOUR Social Security Card and YOUR ID... what would you be saying about the illegals then when you are told to "pay up" on your credit card because an illegal had stolen all of your information.

Brian...
What would you suggest we call them? Legal? Citizen? The headline says "Teen" so yes it is about their age and yes them being of that age they want the word illegal dropped from their status. It's not gonna happen. They are what they are. They are illegal. Their ethnicity means nothing in this. They could be white and be illegal. Not all illegals are Mexicans Brian.

It costs a lot of money to a mansion and I can't afford it. That doesn't give me the right to sneak into Beverly Hills break into a house and move in.

You and every other ILLEGAL ALIEN are nothing but criminal squatters who are here to steal from citizens and legal immigrants.

Not all undocumented workers are criminals. Most of us are hard working and provide no harm.

Horseshit- "undocumented worker" is a worn-out phrase. You're an illegal immigrant, a criminal. No exceptions.

he's not an illegal alien of any type, he's a fake that can't keep his story straight. the only reason he posts here is to try and antagonize those that are against illegal immigration.

Juan...
You're all criminals because you're illegals from the day you step foot in the United States until you either become Legal or become a United States Citizen.

Once you get here... you show such disrespect for our country by thumbing your noses at us and our laws by making "demands" which you have no "right" to make and even going so far as getting our laws changed in your favor. That goes to show even more of your criminality as a whole.

Want to be looked at as law abiding? GO BACK HOME and come back when you want to think about coming to our country the LEGAL way!!!

illegal immigrants don't keep prices down, taxes are raised all the time because of those animals. They come here, make money and send it home to mexico. The money isn't spent here, therefore we spend more to make up for it. We also pay the bills for when those dirty illegal mexican biotches give birth to their offspring of rabbid boar.

Enough is enough, we are tired of paying your bills you filthy POS's
