With one-third of unauthorized immigrants living in poverty and reports showing that legalization and citizenship would increase immigrants' earnings 13 percent or more, immigration reform is an important hunger issue.

It's a form of modern SLAVERY as well...

Undocumented immigrants are left with no choice but to get a job that is most often abusive.

As they are treated as a second class human being...would often be threatened of being reported under the risk of deportation.

I myself has gone through this...
i worked as a caregiver to this old man, basically working 24 hrs a day and paid for $65... he needed a lot of care and hands on procedures from the moment he wakes u at 7am until he goes in bed at 11at night.
I remember having to ask them of a break and I went for two hours walk just to unwind, later I known that I would not get paid that day because of that break I took. The daughter treated me like a slave and not even allowed to take break. So in the interval hours that the patient sleeps, I do chores i.e., cook for the whole family, do the garden, clean up and even told to paint the whole house. The wife old lady would have her called ma'am and would watch me do chores and see to it was done in her way,... Until she felt we were in. A relationship ans she started to act inappropriate and kiss me in appropriately, this Norma is a old whore and bitch...I'm sorry I just feel so disgusted right now recalling all the things this family did to me., specially what the daughter and this old lady. Worst is that this old lady would take money from insurance for his husband and her care and use my name but never gives the proper compensation. And would say to her family and relatives that she gives me big amounts of $,...
Until one night the two sons came over in the middle of the night and kicked me out the house at midnight. One son threaten to call the police and the other son had weapons with him.

I never reported anything to the police because the son threatened me that they're gonna report me and deport me...

BOO HOO, POOR YOU, MISERABLE "ILLEGAL "INVADERS"!

Here's an idea to correct your MISERABLE, ROTTEN, SLAVING life here in the United States ~~~

GO BACK HOME!

Every "illegal "INVADER" who is in YOUR country ILLEGALLY is in PRISON! Perhaps OUR government should STOP ALL WELFARE benefits to every illegal INVADER and just send you all to PRISON and treat you like the prisoners are treated in YOUR country?

Our government NEEDS to STOP ALL WELFARE BENEFITS to every
"ILLEGAL "INVADER" and call in the military to round you all up and ship you back home where you HAVE TO WORK to support yourselves!

I, like the majority of Americans, want all illegal aliens and all of their family deported back to the country they came from. It may take many years, but it is the right thing for or government to do since over 40 million have been allowed to invade our sovereign nation since 1986. We Americans need to contact our elected officials and let them know where we stand on this issue. If they then vote for this "reform", let them know that we will do everything in our power to vote them out of office.

What a shame that in today's world we still have such narrow minded people who hate someone just because they are not white or have an accent. It is so hypocritical to want to kick hard working people out and act like they are animals on the one hand and then turn around, abuse them as cheap labor and reap the benefits of their need to work. I never saw a foreigner begging on the street for change. They beg for work and they get screwed by xenophobic souls like the ones who commented above. It is very easy to blame immigrants for any little problem. No, immigrants are not taking up jobs. Ditch digging and picking vegetables is not a very popular aspiration among people that can work legally in this country. But someone has to do it. Give me a break.

Nobody told you to come into this country illegally! These people who break into this country know exactly what they are doing when they break into a country! They get no sympathy from me!

OK....how about I try going into Mexico illegally with the Tb disease that I have and see what happens to me! You think we have "strict immigration laws"? Go to China, go to Mexico, go to any other country and Check their immigration laws....see who is "strict" then!

They menace me. I work in a doctors office and these illegals request everything from translation services to Medicaid and public housing.....meanwhile NYC has 600000 homeless people who are sick citizens and we can't take care of them....but yet we can take care of some illegals that have no business being here in the first place?

About an hour ago you said there were 40 million undocumented people on the country and now there are only 15 million. Either they are being deported very quickly or you just pull numbers out of thin air.

So you come ILLEGALLY disrespecting our laws thinking you are above them and get this kind of treatment and whine? You should be deported, as far as the way they treated you, that should not have happened and if you reported it they would have been in trouble. Sure you might have been deported then but just think another sucker like you must have replaced you and is now living that nightmare. So go back and enter the LEGAL way and get a job without fear of reprasals.

Oh good. Another supporter of comprehensive immigration reform. Yes it would be good if people could return home and apply legally, but of course under current law there are very stiff penalties for anybody who wants to do that. The proposed legislation removes these penalties. Make sure to contact your representatives and tell them how important this is to you.

Fortunately your "The majority of Americans want illegal aliens deported" and the "40 million invaders" exist only in your twisted mine.
