This is a quote from a prominent 40-something AMERICAN-AFRICAN.

YES, I'M A BAD AMERICAN
I Am the Liberal-Progressives Worst Nightmare. I am an American.

I am a Master Mason and believe in God.
I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles and believe in American products.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some
Liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican!

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart
American.
I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and
does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and
where they want to.
My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G.
Davidson that makes the awesome Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or
arguing about it.
I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any
witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you!

I want to know exactly where the churches are that Reverend Jesse
Jackson and Reverend Al Sharpton preach, where they get their money,
and why they are always part of the problem and never the solution.
Can I get an AMEN on that one?
I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're
breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.
And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license.

I think it's good.... And I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes
two parents.
I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.
I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA !
If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American

Special my foot. Once this idiot coward king obama is not President anymore then we need to start deporting all these illegal aliens.
It costs more to keep them than deport them. If not, then we need to disband the INS, ICE and Border Patrol. Just a waste of tax payers dollars. So we need to figure out whats more important illegal aliens or INS, ICE and the Border Patrol.
If they can't perform their jobs to the highest of standards then get rid of them.
This jacka$$ of a President has gotten away with way too much just because he is black. Hopefully the LAST black President!

NO..NO...NO....
NO citizenship ever for illegal aliens,they're criminals .
QUIT f'ing rewarding these criminals for breaking our laws ! Barry !
The only good illegal aliens are dead illegal aliens !
:)
“On average each day 25 Americans die at the hands of criminal aliens in the United States. Twelve Americans are murdered by criminal aliens. Another ten Americans are killed by drunk-driving criminal aliens. Finally, an additional three Americans will die because of negligent homicides by criminal aliens, such as running a red light, speeding, or the negligent handling of a dangerous weapon.” Source: F.I.R.E. Coalition.

The federal and states government is the problem. Politicians and the mainstream media know the problem and how many U.S. civilians are killed in these acts of “domestic terrorism.” By allowing the agenda of illegal aliens to continue killing vast numbers of Americans is not a big vote getter, so not a high priority to report.

The Obama administration insists that it is prioritizing its immigration enforcement to go after the dangerous foreigners first, sounds reasonable enough. But many previously arrested, many drunk-driving, sexual predations, repeat offenders of illegal aliens violent acts show the system is still as criminal-friendly as ever. They are included as illegal aliens (under age 35) that Obama advocates granting mass amnesty!

Nobody has ever suggested a "special path" for anybody. Just more wingnut BS to fuel fake outrage at something that does not exist.

So I saw this news story on TV. A illegal immigrant was speaking about the trials of coming with her parents over the border at age 4. One of the trials was not being able to enter college.

THEN, in the short bio of the illegal immigrant, the news anchor implied that she was "worthy" 'cause she had a college degree and wasn't going to be just a looser.

So, HOW did she get into college to get a degree?
I fully suspect that she paid for illegal documents, and also lied.

When this illegal alien was old enough to realize that she was actually illegal, she should have been able to do something about it. She should have been able to go to our government and without threat to her stupid parents, been able to make things right for herself.

That is what this issue is all about...making things right again. Whenever ANYONE makes things right, it is not easy. It is always difficult.

In my mind, illegal immigrants should pay for the education that Americans gave them from K-12 for free. They should pay a fine for lying and having false documents. They should be told to go back to the country of their nationality and summit the leaving docs to that country and settle up with them first. They should get all their shots and medical records up-to-date and approved for-entry in the US. And the requirement to get this done should not be 10 years at minimum. It should be however fast the individual can become settled with the homeland first.
Then they should once again make application for re-entry and have that handled within a minimum of three years.

Going back to the homeland as a requirement for re-application is important. What if they go back and find out that they really really like it back their instead? It is important to help them decide.

For the parents...same thing. No, jail for being bad....just a process to make things right again.

THE NEW immigrants, never before in this country, though, will have very strict laws to follow, one being absolute proof of non-illness...a period of quarantine to endure before entry.

I view immigration as a threat to current citizens health. Disease and virus can wipe out millions of people if not monitored correctly. THIS should be the most important security at our border.
