There has been a lot of talk lately about a 'path to citizenship' in the new immigration reform law, but a new study by the Pew Research Hispanic Center says most immigrants from Mexico, who make up the bulk of illegal immigrants, are not interested in becoming U.S. citizens.

All the americans are scared, all the jobs will be taken by illegal immigrant. Bacause they just want easy job, not hard job. But they want to get pay good.
Actually once illegals are legalized and employers are forced to pay them and treat them fairly the employers will get rid of them and replace them with new illegals.

This is not that interesting, but today Limbaugh was talking about an incident, regarding entitlement's and the National Debt. An illegal alien was stopped in a Department Store for stealing. When the cop's went through her purse, they found $800.00 dollar's cash. Several credit cards. And several hundred dollars in food stamp's. It hit me harder than usual. The idiot's in Washington simply don't have a clue what's happening out here in the real World. I'm sure that story is played out over and over again in every State in the Country, all the while the Obam, will not investigate the abuses of entitlement's and keeps borrowing and printing money. Our Children futures are simply pure chit. And the Pres. Doesn't get it what so ever.

Im an undocumented immigrant and I love this country so so much. But my life is miserable without documents even though I'm intelligent. However I'm really just asking please for a permanent legal status even if it doesn't include a citizenship. I just wanna be able to work, make my dreams come true and come our of these dark and painful shadows. I already pay my taxes even though I'm illegal and never asked for welfare or food stamps. I don't even want any special benefits just a way to work here legally

I work in a major metro school district. There is a mexican guy at a school who I tried to have a dialogue with about illegal immigration. The conversation never got past a couple of sentences because he was compeletely convinced that MEXICAN WAS A RACE!!! NO KIDDING!!! HE IS ABOUT 50 YR OLD AND FIRMLY BELIEVES THIS!!!
P.S., HE IS A NATURALIZED AMERICAN CITIZEN!!!! Do we need more of this crap?
Oh, yeah, he only works with bilingual children...scary!
He believes mexican is a race, he drinks his own pee, probably thinks the world is flat, so what? Leave him alone and mind your own business!

I love to read all of this postings, It is interesting to know how much hate there is between different races. It only makes me want to comment and defend my own race (Mexicans) but in the other hand I don't want to lower my standards because neither the white race or the brown race are right.

Yet some of them pay coyotes thousands multiple times after having been ejected from this country multiple times. I am not buying into this charade.
I'm not buying your charade that every illegal pays thousands to a coyote either. You watch too much Nat Geo Border Wars.
