Obama welcomes the undocumented. We will continue to demonstrate and demand citizenship and the benefits that come with it.

We are fighting the same battle that blacks fought in the 50's and 60's, we will not be denied.

History has show that America is a melting pot. Immigration is what has made this country great in the first place. We have a mesh of cultures, languages, and different ethnic backgrounds here and that is actually what America is known for. The immigrants that have come here in the past were hardworking, focused, individuals that actually brought us out of recessions. The funny thing is all the people above seem like white Americans, in your ancestry YOU WERE IMMIGRANTS TOO! American English is known as such a mix of different languages because of America being such a melting pot. The racial diversity we can find here is hard to replicate any where else. Some people come here for refuge and an escape from the tortures that occupy their homelands. We have taken the role of "big brother" to the world and as such we should be more open minded to the suffering here and elsewhere. Given that we are slowly becoming overpopulated, but still the immigrants that come to our land often do jobs that American citizens will not do. There have been studies done offering an American citizen who works in an office an opportunity to do any of these jobs that the immigrants willingly do, and most American citizens said no. So for the argument that immigrants steal jobs, NO they do not- as a matter of fact they keep our economy up because the jobs they do are necessary to keep our crops up and our rates for these crops down (preventing inflation). Also, learning other languages benefits our kids. They will be much more accepted overseas and will help more people because when asked everyone prefers the comfort of their home language. The educational purpose of having our kids learn multiple languages is such a blessing, because in the long run it helps for our future politicians to engage in meaningful conversations overseas. This way we can stop being known for being FAT Americans and we can gain the respect of being well-read, well-versed, and especially cultured Americans. Americans are not respected the world around, because we see ourselves as the best. I believe this is the best country however our opinions of our fellow man need to change. The simple way of referring to outsiders here is even de-humanizing ("aliens"). How would we feel if we went to some other country and were treated like that, like "aliens".

You are wasting your time and depleting our oxygen as you sit and type these worthless words. You are swaying no one into thinking as you think. The damage illegals have done such as hospitals closing for the lack of funds resulting from unpaid bills by these people who have arrogantly stated they came only to receive medical attention because they can't get it in their messed up countries is insulting to our country not to mention taking advantage of my country's generosity! hospitals can't stay open if bills don't get paid! To hell with YOUR GENEROSITY....TAKE IN AS MANY AS YOUR HOUSEHOLD WILL HOLD.....lets see how long you can provide for each and everyone of them, from school supplies for their kids to breakfast, lunch and dinner FOR ALL. Don't forget bus money that is unless your heart is set on taking them where ever they need to go including doctors appt.! using your gas and wear & tear on your vehicle. Oh yes they're clothes, EVERYTHING, toothbrushes, etc, etc. If you helped the country this way JUST FOR 1 MONTH.....it would HELP the country reduce some of the money lost on these undesirables who's women illegally cross over to literally just drop their liters of anchor kids for you and me to feed and clothe! just imagine the droves coming in daily because the word gets around that hospitals TURN NO ONE AWAY!!! you must be one of these or your family must be in these circumstances for you to be crying your eyes out for them. Why don't you look into adopting some of these families? if you care so much.

will not go to another country and the point is they come here to live off our government you know all their public assistance should be stopped no medicade,food stamps,wic, or any other kind of assistance they come here in labor and leave the hospital with their newborn and all kinds of assistance their hospital bill is paid by medicade they have food stamps and wic to buy the expensive baby formula with and the medicade on their newborn up until the age 18 we cannot even take care of our own people much less them never have I heard of one paying their own hospital bills or their childrens medical bills or buying their own food or baby formula that is the only reason they come here for the freebies they do not care about or have any desire to defend the u.s. just the freebies they would all run if the draft started back up they have no respect for America so why should we cater or care about them as far as escaping their own country does not seem like they have the guts to defend their own country so do you really think they would defend the u.s.

That myth has been dispelled time and time again juan. When hispanics are forced to eat at their own lunch counters, have their own water fountains, their own bathrooms, sit in the back of a bus (other than one being used for deportations) then you might have an argument. Since blacks were having that happen and hispanics are NOT, you have no argument. All you have is more la ratza propaganda being fed to you like a mushroom in a dark room it's all chit.
