If you can do better at home go and don't let the door hit you on the way out. I am glad to see an illegal alien admit that the talk of amnesty is keeping you here and most likely attracting more people to come here illegally. That just proves that enforcement not amnesty is they way to solve the problem.
I do take offence at the fact that you call yourself an immigrant. You are an illegal alien. The term immigrant applies only to those who come here legally and honestly. It does not apply to those who violate the sovereignty and laws of our country.
For your information, I'm a us permanent resident. I'm not illegal in the US. I'm fighting to get this done because it's the only way to make us economy stronger than ever. It will also help the illegal immigrants to live a good life here in the USA. Don't be racist because immigrants are coming from somewhere else. Open your eyes and use mathematics to see how much this is benefit. Go back to school to learn more or be quite. Thanks !

Oh yeah ? Haha, that's right. But just open your eyes to see what will go on if all immigrants go back to their country ? Ask yourself why USA is the 1st powerful in the world ? What makes a nation strong and powerful ? What immigrants accept to do in this country, you won't, right ?

Don't be a moron.illegal aliens lower wages and if legalized, they will no longer pick fruits, vegetables or clean toilets like they're supposed to.That will without a doubt lead to another massive wave of illegal aliens that will also demand amnesty.Even the cbo report claimed amnesty would lower wages for about 15 years before the good things in that report BEGINS to show and that just doesn't cut it.unemployment and famine might be acceptable in africa, but not in this country.

That's just another false belief amongst illegal aliens and thier supporters.If you believe this country would fall apart without illegals then go ahead and leave, teach us a lesson. Lmao

A selection of various dictionaries' definitions for _immigrant_:
- "a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence"
- "a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence"
- "a person who leaves one country to settle permanently in another"
- "a person who has come into a foreign country in order to live there"
is there a selection for the word illegal?that comes right before immigrant?no well find and show that word stupid

Be honest and ask that question. Have you ever been somewhere else, outside USA ? There is no homeless in Africa. There is no lazy people in Africa. USA accept immigrants here because people like you don't wanna work. You like easy money. In Africa, school fees are very expensive but people still ask for more school. But US government give you free school but you don't wanna be educated. The smart intelligent people who work in the NASA are not American. They all immigrants. So, if those people have to leave NASA because they're from somewhere else, what will become USA ? All African-American are from Africa, right ? All the white American are from Europe, right ? We all immigrants.

I just want you to take a look at the US story before you say something. One more thing you need to know is to ask yourself WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF ALL THE IMMIGRANTS TAKE OUT THEIR GOODS to leave USA ? Are you sure you're okay ?

This is just gibberish.There's plenty of educated americans that can't find jobs right now and I want a link backing up your nasa claim.By the way, I wouldn't consider living in a hut as having a home.
