Okay I get it im a american (white) female. I am married to a illegal mexican. Have been for 6 yrs. We have two beautiful lil girls. I own my own business, he works 6 days a week brings own 350.00 a week been there for 7 yrs.
We dont get assitance and he files his taxes.
But I live in fear everyday that they could just take him from me send him back and my kids would lose their father. Did he do wrong by crossing(absolutely) but he is from juarez the deadliest city in mexico. He wanted a better life like we all do. I guess I feel like americans fuss because they say alot of illegals dont pay taxes but if they had a social they would have to. If they had license they would have to pay insurance. Right?. I know there are some bad ones but hell their are bad whites and blacks to.
Hell most americans barley support there family. To lazy to get out and get a job. You can find a job of you really want one. My husband works 70 hours a week makes 350.00 and doesnt complain. So my question is what about the ones like us?
We do everything right and are still threatened everyday:(

Not everything, as he is still here illegally and instead of trying to rectify the situation, you put your girls at the risk of losing their father by doing nothing.

Hey teddy4me. I've recently had something of a change of heart about the proposed immigration reforms.

Not that I'm ready to outright oppose the bill yet, but I am not going to be out here trying to support it anymore until I see how certain issues are resolved.

The path toward citizenship has been a sticking point I had decided I would probably just have to live with, but now there's an issue that hits closer to home for me.

I thought this would be as good a place as any to post it and irritate both sides of the debate in the process.

I'm putting it in a reply to you because frankly, you're just about the only person that opposes reform that has ever shown me even the slightest bit of respect.

Not that I expect you to agree with what I'm about to say, but here it is...

Rubin Navarrette can kiss my gay a*s

Ruben Navarrette recently posted an opinion piece on CNN suggesting that including legal protections for gays and lesbians in the immigration reform package was really just a clever way for opponents of reform to kill the bill.

Until I read Mr. Navarrette's long winded justification for discriminating against the LGTB community I was a supporter of reform.

Not so much now.

Excluding a specific group of people from legal protections that are being offered to everyone else in order to get what you want for a group you favor is prejudice no matter how eloquent your defense of that discrimination may be.

"Adios, immigration reform" works just fine for me Mr. Navarrette.

Bottom line, no inclusion, no support and Mr. Navarrette can blame his own bigotry for that change of heart.

Below is a link to the article on CNN and the comment I left....

www.cnn.com/2013/05/10/opinion/navarrette-imm...

Ruben Navarrette can kiss my gay a*s.

"...The votes will vanish. And so, for the sake of the estimated 40,000 same-sex couples that would be affected by such an obscure change, an estimated 11 million people will be out of luck. Adios, immigration reform."

So now we're willing to look the other way and pass one more law that discriminates against gay people just for the sake of what...immigration reform?

Undocumented immigrants get a green card and a path toward citizenship and gays get thrown under the bus one more time?

Do the right thing. Put the amendment in, fight to get the bill passed and if you fail at least you didn't sell your soul for some hollow, morally bankrupt "victory".

I'm tired of LGTB equality being something progressives only support when there's no cost and no risk to what they believe is "really" important.

Do the right thing Ruben, support equality for everyone or admit that you're just as big a bigot as the people you've made a career out of complaining about.

I have always respected your right to voice your opinions and concerns, and I thank you for treating me with respect as well. One of my best friend's son was gay, and I watched him grow up from a darling little boy into an amazing young man. He recently died from an inoperable brain tumor, and that has left me with yet another hole in my heart. You know that whether I agree with you or not, you can always direct a comment to me and know I won't ever go for your jugular. Fight for what you believe in. This initiative has many sticking points for me, and I don't see them ever getting rectified, and I think what will result is another crush of illegals. Nothing with change.

If your husband is working 70 hours a week for $350.00, then he is part of the problem. When employers can get Mexicans to work for that kind of money, it brings down wages for all Americans.

I see it all the time in my industry of truck driving. Employers don't want to cough up the money to pay workers a decent wage. Without these foreigners, they would be forced to increase their pay scale or benefits in order to attract workers. Now, they just get these foreigners (not just Mexicans) who will come here--work excessive hours, and get very little pay. Why hire an American for much more money?

If you married an American man who was wanted by police, and years later they finally caught him, should we let him go because he has a family? Of course not. He knew what he was getting into and so did you. It's something both of you should have considered before having children.

I don't know, but what I do know is that everybody suffers when this happens.

We have the same thing going on up north. I can take care of your lawn for $30.00 per cut. My competitors are around the same price give or take a few bucks. But now somebody comes along and takes my customer away because he can do the job for $18.00 per cut. My competitor is using immigrants and paying them nothing.

Soon, many of my customers are leaving for the same reason. How does my business survive? Simple: Do what my competitor is doing. Now the other companies have to do what we both are doing. It spreads like wildfire.

Politicians tell us we need to bring in people to do the jobs Americans won't do. I say we need to bring in people to do the job our politicians won't do. There is no job an American won't do if you pay him or her enough money. You need the toilets cleaned in your business and pay $16.00 per hour, you will not only have clean toilets, but the cleanest toilets on the street.

They say it's impossible to deport all the illegals in the country. BS. Make a law that states anybody caught in this country illegally faces a 10 year prison sentence, they'll deport themselves in less than six months. Problem solved.
