Did the 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently in the United States do something wrong?

YES.

-- If we can agree that they did, shouldn't they have to acknowledge the wrongdoing and make amends?

YES.

-- And, if they are allowed to remain in the United States legally, isn't it only fair that they "go to the back of the line" because millions of folks are playing by the rules and trying to enter the country the right way?

DO NOT REMAIN BECAUSE THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY. ALLOWING THEM TO STAY JUST SIGNALS FOR MORE TO COME AND CROSS THE BORDER. DON'T GO TO THE BACK OF THE LINE, GO TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BORDER AND APPLY FOR A VISA, JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD DOES.

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

Illegal aliens will not acknowledge they have done anything wrong, nor will they express gratitude for what they have received. They just want more!

I read a recent comment from a laraza person who said something to the effect to a congressperson who was outspoken about NOT giving Obamacare to illegal aliens. She threatened them by telling them that their vote would be remembered by latinos in the next election!!!

Imagine! They have gotten so arrogant that they think that if you vote against Mexicans, they you are doomed in America! Get rid of this scum!
