Wherever there's money and educated, developed society, there will be free loaders trying to break in and take advantage of this. The European country's are more blunt about it than the wimpy Americans. In Britain they aren't afraid to call it what it is and remove them ASAP.We could take lessons from them.

The correct term is "Registered Provisional Immigrant".

Learn it, Know it, Use it.

"Illegal" is just plain tacky and low brow.

I'm legal. Matter of fact, I bought my citizenship papers in Tijuana before crossing the country legally. Got a great deal, too. So I don't worry or look over my shoulder and I'm here to stay. Bwaajajajaja

Either America sends them home, or America becomes Mexico. It's really that simple. I don't remember the Roman Empire dying on account of fear of impoliteness. You send the scum home, or you die. They are parasites, the Jews sent them to you. Read about the Immigration Act of 1965.
