It looks like they already have shown us who they prefer or more accurately who they want to rule.

The illegals came here because they value America. They broke an unjust law in order to live a free, better, richer life. In the vast majority of cases, obeying anti-immigration laws would mean never getting to live here. Itís a life sentence.

Breaking bad laws to build a better life is not dishonorable; it is admirable, provided breaking the law involves no use of force. Coming here in defiance of unjust laws is a peaceful act; it is just the avoidance of the force our government would initiate against them. It is certainly wrong to wield private force; it is wrong to take the law into oneís own hand. But these are not involved in illegal immigration.

That is the biggest load of excrement you have seen you dump here and you have dumped a lot. They come here to steal and for no other reason. They have no respect for the country its people, our laws, or even themselves. There is nothing admirable in being a thief, a liar. There is nothing wrong with laws that keep criminal out of the country and there is nothing peaceful about invading a country and steling from those who are righfully and legally there just because you are too dam lazy to work for what you want. If you are honest and follow the law you can immigrate to this country easier than you can immigrate legally in to any other country in the world. In fact over 1,000,000 people do so every year.

Corrupt people in power love ignorant masses. That is why they are inviting the ignorant to come here while turning what was once the greatest public education system in the world in to multi-lingual day care. It is why educated foreign nationals have to jump through hoops and work as virtual bonded servants if they want to live here yet the door is wide open for the ignorant and criminal to come here and do as they please.

immigration laws are good laws.

they ensure that the citizens of a country are ensured a prosperous future for themselves and their future generations.

that is why they are there.

that is why every country has these laws.

if a country does not limit the numbers that want to become citizens, then, let me ask you.. HOW many do you think should be allowed in EACH year?

10 million? 50 million? 100 million? UNLIMITED?

do you see anything wrong with uncontrolled numbers entering the usa at all?

is that all you worry about the usa turning into?

if americans don't stand up and say something about what is happening, I'm afraid that the usa will turn into "another" country.

That's a bogus reason...they could easily cut aid to some of the hostile foreign countries that we stupidly fund, knowing full well that the aid never gets to where it was intended. This was an in your face initiative perpetrated by an insolent administration. If any Americans get hurt because of this action, I hope they demand restitution.
