want legal status ONLY for the benefits which no one has anymore.....because it's all been used up paying hospital bills each time they drop their anchors in our hospitals, food stamps, section 8. Enough is enough, it's all gone. NO MORE TO HAND OUT. Our citizens can't even get help and they deserve the help....they deserve my tax money NOT ILLEGAL FOREIGNERS. I will gladly help my fellow Americans and I do my share of this through my favorite charities.

every job an illegal alien has means an American citizens is out of work.

there is no need to import more people there is plenty of reason to remove all illegal aliens aliens and those who have over stayed their visa.

we do not have a labor shortage we have a job shortage only a fool would think pushing citizens out of work is good for the country.

I've been telling you all for two years, the conversations with the employee's my family employs have never, never wanted U.S. Citizenship. They always wanted to go back and forth to mexico and send money home. The work permit has always been the answer. They don't assimilate, they don't become Americanized, even after generations that have come here and lived and worked. They want what they can steal or take freely, then return. BTW, on the Utah news tonight, a classroom full of student's received there annual Christmas's. The class of 30-40 kids only one white little girl was there receiving her's. Every other child was Latino. Everyone. New boot's, shoes, coat's gloves, toys books. More than many hard working American family's would ever be able to afford. It made me sick to my stomach. Today cops were playing in a homeless shelter with two American blond headed kids. They were making snowmen. The American kids were living in the shelter, while the Mexicans were picking up huge bags of Christmas present's. What's going on.

are these illegal aliens so stupid to think we will fall for that? Legal status and what's next? Citizenship. They will be crying we are legal why can't we get citizenship?

Give them nothing but a ride home.

Who cares what these parasites want? When I was in college, I lived in a very old building and roaches crawled around my kitchen. Do you think I asked them what they wanted? I crushed them or sprayed them. Sic temper vermes.

If they have legal status they can still be deported, they want citizenship so they will never have to go back to the cesspool where they were born, they want to stay in the cesspool they create here.

Uh, huh and the American trash you mention are among the minority in this country and that still doesn't negate our immigration laws nor our right to enforce them. That American trash still has the right to live and work in this country and illegal aliens do not. We have always had a large blue-collared workforce in this country and most of them aren't lazy. Nice try, but no cigar.
