They aren't to blame; our system is.
The GOPasaurs want the cheap labor.
The Dems want the votes.
We entice them to come here with a wink & a nod to border security, knowing eventually they'll get amnesty & citizenship if they stay long enough.
Neither party is willing to actually stop them from coming and once here it's impossible to get rid of them.
Why should either party stop them, when we have idiots like you who give them a free pass by blaming the American citizens like myself who want it to stop.

Since when?

Are all GOPasaurs as naive as you?
Only the RINOS!

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away"

Sure it does Senator,it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 19869884

It's nearly impossible to legally immigrate to the US from Latin America, but we hand out vias like candy to any white person, just as we have throughout our history.
Why would we allow more legal immigration from Latin America when we have 11 million of them here illegally?

Illegals by Race or Country

Mexico continued to be the leading source country of unauthorized
immigration to the United States (see Table 3).

There were 6.6 million
unauthorized immigrants from Mexico in 2010, representing 62 percent of the unauthorized population.

The next leading source countries
for unauthorized immigrants in 2010 were El Salvador
(620,000), Guatemala (520,000), Honduras (330,000), and the
Philippines (280,000).

The ten leading countries of origin represented 86 percent
of the unauthorized immigrant population in 2010.

The number of Mexican-born unauthorized
immigrants increased by 2.3
million between 2000 and 2007 and
decreased by 340,000 between 2007
and 2010.

Changes in the unauthorized
population were much smaller
during either period for other leading
source countries.

"In the first six months of 2005 alone, Mexico deported more than 120,000 people from Central America back to their countries of origin. Another important group of people are those of Han Chinese origin, who pay about $5,500 to smugglers to be taken to Mexico from Hong Kong."

Thank you Mexico.
Thank Mexico for what?

They let 6.6 million "MEXICANS" cross our Southern border with a road map, including the drug smugglers!

To tolerate the continued presence of low IQ
illegal aliens is criminal.

You still haven't identified all those Americans who are going to pick strawberries in the hot California sun all day for $5....
That would be the Hispanic Americans as soon as we deport the illegal ones.

They come because they want to be US citizens, and their quality of life here is better than in their native country.
Could you show me where it says that in our Immigration Laws?

Thanks.

First liberal media said these 2 terrorists have only been here 2 to 3 years, now Fox News is reporting they have possibly been here up to 10 years, meaning they came in when Bush was at the helm.
Meanwhile how many more muslim terrorists among others are laying in wait around America?, thanks to Americas misguided immigration policies.......
The United States allows in over 900,000 legal immigrants a year, with no background checks!

We have 11 million illegal aliens that B.O. wants to give amnesty and American citizenship to with no background checks from the country they came from!

Now how many of those are waiting to do more harm to our country?

You cannot peddle that, "they are coming for the good life" anymore. They have over loaded our welfare rolls, and they are almost as lazy as our unfotunates.

Your people? Aren't Americans your people regardless of race or ethnicity? So you have a tribal mentality attitude instead which is typical of people of your culture? It is racism pure and simple when one puts their ethnic group above our immigration laws.
Please don't include loyal, lawabiding Americans in with corrupt employers and some of our politicans. So don't use the word "we".
When things get bad enough and they will soon both parties will be scrambling to get rid of them and there will be no amnesty. Read it and weep!
You're out of touch with reality if you think the Dems will drop their support for amnesty and support mass deportation.
