Obviously the Amnesty/Immigration Reform advocates are forcing this down our throats when we cannot afford it.We cannot afford to continue to support these hordes of people taking up tax dollars that are need for our own children,elderly,Vets/disabled and the homeless. Americans out of work and going through changes under Obama's Policies. This is insanity, this is unrealistic. Keep granting Amnesty and expecting a different outcome.It will only be the same results.Illegals(most) will end up sucking off the Gov. teat and more will cross the border for free everything. It's like a cycle.
The solution would be to have Mexico take responsibility for her people. Create jobs,set up welfare programs,etc,,,,, Learn from us/take our example,for we once were able and willing to easily take care of our own less fortunate. The more we are burdened with Mexico's(poor/uneducated) illegals and illegals from other countries ,the less we can do for our own/our country.

i see it as the traitors in office pushing this not the citizens who have a legal right to vote,we need to bring this to a vote and make sure only legal voters are voting before trying to push all citizens want it. a legal vote would show facts. what we have now is being forced on us with their words saying the people want it. we all have seen we cannot take the words of any in office.

The advocates are our traitors in office, such as the Traitor in Chief and his Adm. who are being lobbied by the Corps, the ones getting richer while we tax payers foot the bill for their welfare,medical care,etc. These useless Politicians are the advocates along with La Raza,Mecha,etc.

oh i cant wait for us humans to be classed and united as one just as the caribbean has introduced (csme) caribbean single market economy so should the rest of the world live as EQUALS and look at the bigger picture. what difference does it make we are already in this country so why not adhere to its rules and be recognized, why all the division or different shades and classes? at the end of the day it is what it is immigrants still come here and live just as any american only difference they dont get the opportunity to contribute because of restrictions but who are we to judge when everyone has individual characters and is held accountable for their actions. whatever laws that are put in place there are rules for everyone. SMH!GIVE THE IMMIGRANTS A CHANCE. why is the rich so selfish when the bible clearly state what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his only sole. arent our kids going to enjoy this earth without or are we going to take it to our grave why cant we enjoy every moment. well for what its worth hats off to President BARACK OBAMA for finally making this happen.

They don't want to become Americans and many will never qualify. They are just making it a big deal in Washington and the media. Forcing illegal Mexicans to chose whether they want to be Mexican or Americans eliminates millions. We are not teabagger's either. We want our Sovereighty protected by our Government... that's all
