You think illegal aliens will stop committing felonies? They will be deported because it's their culture to break the law.

4 years from now Obama will be out of office, in his lame duck yearhe won't be allowed to pass anything, then the real fun begins.

As you well know there are a large number of illegal immigrants who were either brought here against their will, see human trafficking, or were brought here under false pretenses and did not know they were illegal until they were already here.
You suddenly seem to be a huge fan of black people. Will you be extending your largess to all people who were brought here against their will?
I said "illegals chose to break our laws" WE AMERICANS didn't go snatch ANY ILLEGALS to bring them over here from mexico. Their illegal parents choosing to also bring in ILLEGALLY THEIR mexican born kids....MAKES THEM ALL ILLEGALS breaking AND TRESPASSING OUR LAWS AND BORDERS. NO WHERE NEAR THE SAME AS OUR AMERICAN BLACKS and they way they were introduced to our country AGAINST THEIR WILL. b/t/w.....this "huge fan of black people" you speak of IS IN YOUR MIND....YOU'RE MAKING IT IT A RACIAL THING. I AM COLOR BLIND to Americans and (legal-immigrants) of any race, color, or religious beliefs. GOT IT? DON'T YOU FORGET THIS, don't expect me to see things your way and advocate in behalf your illegal counterparts....illegals are illegals NO MATTER WHERE THEY COME FROM. ALL LEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE WELCOMED in my country and more so when they are finally ready to become citizens and get sworn in (loyalty to the USA).

Huh? I thought you were familiar with the illegal immigration issue, but I was apparently mistaken. I turns out you are just pulling shit out of your ass. If you were knowledgeable you would know that untold thousands of people are brought into the country against their will. I doubt you read much, but if you are interested I would recommend the book "Nobodies" by John Bowe.

It is ironic that you live in Texas and have never heard of anybody "snatch ANY ILLEGALS". There used to be a Congressman from Texas named Tom Delay. Some day try looking up Delay, Jack Abramoff and Saipan. Thousands of people were tricked into leaving their own countries to work as virtual slaves in Saipan. It was a popular vacation spot for right wing lobbyists. Especially with all of the free sex slaves.

I guess you would actually be OK with that though because Delay did "get sworn in (loyalty to the USA)".

America is not different then any other country with their bigotry. I live in Mexico and the bigotry is everywhere. People get upset when things are forced upon them. Do you really think it is OK to break the laws of another country and that is the first thing they do in coming to the USA.

America has had bigotry since it's inception. Remember black slaves? Japanese internment camps. If you knew your history you would not be making things up like, this was not the America you know. Bigotry is worldwide. You need to get over it. It will never go away. Extremist politics. That is why they call it politics. I have seen men in government buildings in other countries go at it with chairs and fists and have all out brawls in their congressional meetings. It happens all the time. Now that is pretty extreme. Because it is like no one ever agrees is the reason they call it politics. Some governments are more extreme in their politics then others. Look at things that are going on in Mexico where I am. Talk about an extremist government. But I do not pretend it does not exist her or in the USA.

But you do live in the USA I am guessing. You do realize that all countries in the world are hurting. Even the rich countries have people that want to escape, because in reality the people are dirt poor. Look at the people trying to leave China for a better life. Strangely they come to the USA. Also you do not hear quite the uproar from people about the Chinese. They come, they assimilate, they learn English quickly, they do not picket and protest for rights they do not deserve. They open their own business and stay below the radar. Not that that makes it right either.

With all the bigotry and extremism you speak about why are they people trying to get here. They must know something that you do not know? If you are in the USA why do you stay?

So you cannot call law breakers illegals without calling it racism or bigotry. If you break into my house it does not matter what color you are. I will defend it and speak out about it. But someone will make it a racial issue if he is not the same ethnicity as me. Look at the Blacks verses the Hispanics in California. It is all out war against each other. They are segregated and do not live together in the same neighborhoods in many areas. You have not seen that going on forever. That is also bigotry that you apparently did not know about. Where have you been? Segregation is all over the USA and the world.

By my standards your family got to the party a little bit late, but they are still pre-revolution so kudos to you. You mentioned that your family came here legally. Please explain the grueling immigration process they had to go through.
I know you will not because until the 1920's there was no process at all. People simply got on a boat and arrived here unannounced. It is precisely the same process that illegal immigrants use today. Now how is it that you are morally superior?
You're right, in the 1700s there was no "system", therefore arriving on a ship and entering the country was not "illegal". It may come as a surprise to you but now we do have "immigration laws" here in the U.S. If you enter our country illegally you should be deported not showered with gifts of welfare, foodstamps, etc. We have a fiscal problem here. Obama just sees more Democratic votes with all the Illegals. The present Democratic party is the most corrupt political party in our history.

Gee, do you haters ever get tired of repeating all the lies you hear? Illegals do not have the franchise and cannot vote. The assistance you claim they get - far more than they SLP in reality - is dwarfed by the corporate welfare given to companies like ADM and Monsanto. Just cut the military spending the Pentagon does not want but that Congress insists on as earmarked pork and you've more than paid for the medical assistance. But you'd rather hate the other. Your attitude towards Hispanics is starting to match Germany's attitude towards Jews in the 1930s and your attitude should sicken any American with a shred of human compassion.

You lump the other Hispanics from other countries into the so called hate for Mexicans. In reality the Hispanics from other countries hate it if you ask them if they are from Mexico. It is the massive amount of illegal aliens from Mexico that are drawing attention to all Hispanics in the USA. I do not see anyone talking posting in these forums including all Hispanics into their conversations. They are talking about illegal Mexican nationals here in the Mexico forum. Most people you perceive to be racist are actually not. Remember the recent incident in California where one Hispanic group was saying the Mexicans coming in to the city were ruining everything and trashing it. It was in the Mexico forums. Someone will remember as they were there working in the wine fields. Nobody likes to be walked over and used. They said it because it was true, but someone could say they are racists, and they were not Americans. They Hispanics that complaining were there working with work permits. They did not like the illegals coming in and trashing everything for them either. Kind of ironic that you would include all Hispanics.

I am guessing the people you are calling ignorant are the people that are not breaking laws and believe in respecting another countries laws. To speak out about it does not make anyone ignorant. If you support illegal immigration then you would be the ignorant one. God would not support people that commit crimes. If I have it backwards and you are referring to the few on here that just hate everyone then I apologize. Immigrants are people that come legally. So if that is what you are talking about I will agree 100%. If it is about someone attacking any ethnicity that follows laws, then I agree with you also. I know they are on these forums also, but not many. Which is it? Who are the ignorant ones you are referring to?

People do know what the country would be without immigrants. But not illegal migrants. I am here in Mexico and I follow all the laws and do everything right. I would guess that you could say that I am not ignorant.
