" She came here in 2009, slipping across the Rio Grande with no immigration paperwork, "

Which is a slap in the face for the Immigrants that are waiting in their own country to enter here the "LEGAL" way!

Fani was lucky that timing wise she fit into clown barry's "weekly kiss some illegal mexihole azz for democratic votes should the illegal mexihole get amnestied" campaign, characterized by blatant constant hispandering.

We don't hate them because we are prejudiced. We hate them because they once committed a civil violation and have no respect for the law.

Oh wait. This woman worked closely with immigration officials within the legal framework to resolve her situation. Well now we have no choice other to hate people who follow legal procedures too.

The point is that no should be allowed to adjust their status from within our borders if they came here illegally in the first place. Those who do it the right way come here legally in the first place which is what "immigrants" are supposed to do.

WTH does hate and prejudice have to do with it? Just more insults by the pro-illegals.

Oh I see. Following legal procedures only counts sometimes.

What is your take on traffic tickets? These are also a civil violation. Should we just confiscate their cars and never let them drive again or do you think there should be a legal procedure where they can pay a fine and move on with their lives?

Please don't compare citizens and their rights to those of illegal aliens. Getting a traffic ticket is not the same as jumping our borders no matter what terminology you want to use. If we went by your logic then illegals would be violating our borders even more and then expecting to adjust their status after coming here. That is why we have a legal process to come here instead and the penalty for not doing so is deportation. The penalty for a traffic violation is a ticket. There is no law that says one's car has to be confiscated unless it happens repeatedly. In other words, the penalties fit the crime for both offenses.

Feigning outrage and changing the topic. How predictable.

Some laws are important and apparently in your world others are not.

WTH? Where did I change the topic? I addressed all of YOUR initial remarks. Feigning outrage? WTH does that mean? Are you kidding me?

Actually, your last sentence fits your mindset not mine. You obviously don't think our immigration laws are important or the legal process to come here legally in the first place.

Well there are about 32,000 traffic fatalities a year in the US, but you do not think traffic laws count. OK.

What other laws do you have no respect for? Or does it all begin and end with immigration laws?

Speak to the thousands of legal applicants waiting patiently in line to bring a wife or husband here legally. Memo. Tell them she with all her grandeur deserves to break in line in front of them. Yes defend the lawlessness as usual, it doesn't make any good sense to allow millions of under-educated skill less people to break in , in place of qualified educated legal applicant's. People with a sense of right and wrong simply understand this concept.

I agree with you Juan. I have 2 sons with a Mexican immigrant and he has been a law abiding, tax paying, land owner in our community for 20 plus years. He is here legally and has always followed the laws required of him thru immigration. I would die if my sons could not see their father. Hell I would die if I could not be with him and raise our family together like we want to. If he were ever deported I would go with him to Mexico to live. I would never return to this country , that began as immigrants, but now hates them. I would denounce my citizenship and apply for Mexican citizenship. My sons will have their father no matter what I have to do to ensure they do.

I don't hate them. Only those that come here and rape, murder, molest children and bring others with them to sale on the streets for whatever they can get for them per hour. The others I u;nderstand why they want to leave Mexico if they live in a war torn town. Like many of us move to safer areas to live. Many Americans move to the country and commute to get their families away from the worst of the crime areas. Why can't they do the same instead of breaking our laws. I have no problem with people immigrating here legally. They become American citizens. If they break the law, they suffer the consequences just like any other American that get caught. Why should those that come here illegally be treated special? I don't know. I haven't figured that one out yet.
