Brisa, not her real name, grew up in Apple Valley and did not learn until her teenage years that she was not an American but a foreign-born child of undocumented parents living in the U.S. Neither did Julio, not his real name, a 20-year-old from Minneapolis who was smuggled over the Mexico-U.S. desert border near Nogales, Ariz., when he was 10.

With all due respect Juan,I think it's YOU who do not quite understand. Let me explain something to you. Birth Right Citizenship being granted to children born to NON-Citizens won't see another 3 years if that,it WILL end soon friend. Now as far as your children go,if they already have U.S. Citizenship then they have ot for life but so too will "Chain Migration" become a thing of the past,and soon.
What people like you fail to see Juan is this,at over 309 Million people the United States is now the world's 3rd largest population behind only China and India. You see Juan in the next few years it isn't going to make the slightest damn what Democrats or Republicans either one wnat as far as amnesty,it ain't coming and you know what else??? It's not a Political thing my friend...IT'S A MATH THING!!!
Within the next 2-3 years my friend,MATH and MATH ALONE will determine who is allowed access to United States Citizenship and brother,you can bet your ass it won't be the hordes of poor and uneducated from Latin America that get to stay or be allowed to obtain United States Citizenship. This sin't meant as a slur but let's face facts,not ONE other nation on the planet is rolling out the red carpet for Latin America's poor and uneducated masses and as for 2011 and the 112th Congress,well you can bet the house that life is about to get anything but easier for those living and working here ILLEGALLY!!!
They are already citizens, maybe in the future those born here will not be, but they can't go back and take that away. We are only here to work and provide for our families. We work hard and do jobs americans don't want to do. We keep US prices for food and housing low.

And one other thing Juan. Just in case you're one of those who like to say that MY ancestors were Illegal,I say bullshit brother.
You see here's what separates MY ancestors from most of yours. You see MY ancestors could not just show up here in this country prior to the passage of the 1964 Food Stamp Act and drop anchor(have a child) and through that child obtain Tax Payer Funded Welfare. You see that's what distiguishes so many of OUR ancestors from the Hispanics who flooded in AFTER 1964.
My girlfriend has two US born kids, shouldn't the government take care of them, they are citizens and deserve it.

Tell me this, John (English for Juan, in case you were wondering) if you have so much electrical work to do in the construction trade, how come you've also got the time to be on topix 24/7. Liar.

fiction juanita fiction...that argument has been disproven time after time..the average cost of a tomatoe would rise a few cents..money that Americans will pay from the savings of not paying for the schooling and care and feeding of illegal aliens!!!

Don't you have some electrical outlets to put covers on or maybe some homework from that 3rd grade reader?? Try to concentrate jaunita, putting covers on electrical outlets is child's play even for someone with a 3rd grade education...in fact a monkey can be taught to do it...

They are trying to weasel into the construction business in NYC and there are plenty of gringos willing and available to do the work. The only thing that these illegals do is depress wages to unamerican levels. Them and their anchor babies are killing our economy. They all gotta go in the name of fairness to the unemployed and overtaxed people of America.

I would be more than willing to back that bet. Juanitto is just like the Phony Father. He is a prick here to piss people off. He gets off on it. I am starting to see his MO on a few posters here and I think he is one and the same.

Certainly they need help. Perhaps your body parts can be sold to help pay their upkeep in your native country.

Juan,I have stated that not even the most extreme right wing advocate would be in favor of trying to revoke citizenship of those who already have it. Ending birthright citizenship is aimed at FUTURE BIRTHS. As far as your children go,they won't be able to petition for any more family members inside of the next 2-3 years because chain migration is going away as well.

As far as doing jobs Americans won't do Juan,you seem to be leaving out the most important part of that statement. Americans won't do the jobs for the wages you people will. You see there is a 10 to 1 exchange ration that separates the U.S. dollar from the Mexican peso.

13,000$ anually is considered to be "Poverty Level" by our Federal Government,well when you take that 13 thousand American dollars into Mexico it becomes...30,000 Mexican pesos!!! That 30,000 pesos will go 5 times farther in Mexico than 13,000 dollars will EVER go here in our country. That gives the Mexican worker a very unfaid advantage,and you're not even a f##king citizen,you by Law have NO RIGHTS to even hold an American job. It's the threat of actually ENFORCING our current immigration laws that sends groups like la raza screaming RACISM!!!

Here's something else you need to be aware of friend,it's the fact that many of your people can be worked 50-60 hours a week without being paid overtime....work for sub standard wages and in conditions that are not up to OSHA safety standards that is the ONLY incentive for hiring you.

What do YOU think is going to happen if all of a sudden those people were "legalized" to work here....I'll tell you straight up what would happen the very second any of those folks could come in to work and LEGALLY DEMAND any of the following:

** Higher wages
** Health Care benefits
** Paid overtime
** Improved safety standards
** Fair treatment

THEY'D BE FIRED!!! As in out there on their asses and they wouldn't have a legal leg to stand on as far as bringing a Law suit. They're all UNDOCUMENTED,Remember!!! They're basically a "phantom" work force and if they DID use a ss#,it sure as shit wasn't theirs!!! Ya think any of them are going to go into court and admit using a STOLEN SS#!!!

No, actually, he's right on. You're nothing than some brain dead, ignorant kid who get's off on pissing people off enough to respond to your BS because you don't have any friends (male or female) and no one will talk to you so this is the only way you can get any recognition. Pathetic troll
