Obama supporters agree that Illegals should have as many rights and privileges as American citizens at the direct expense of the loser American citizens. Elections have consequences. We lost and the La Raza Racists won in November.

I ask myself what did the indians think when we invaded their territorios? We are all immigrants if we think about it. Don't say we did it legallly because we didn't. We even spread a plague to wipe them out on purpose in my opiniůn that is unhuman. Why did we decide to take over? What I'm really trynig to say is that we're a nation of immigrants to start with. After all who are we to take over land should't the world be for all of us. I bet god laughs of how stupid we can be.

I forgot. English is not your native language. Try looking up the word "amnesty" and learn the meaning. Nobody has proposed amnesty since Reagan. You can look him up too. You might be surprised to learn he was not a Democrat.

you know, rico.
if every illegal alien came into the usa with a million dollars to spend, I think I would not be opposed to them coming here.
from what I read, the numbers show that most illegal aliens coming over don't fall into that category.
and that's a big problem. wouldn't you agree?
we the usa cannot save the world. and providing an amnesty to an unlimited number of illegals just doesn't make sense if you think about it.
imagine if 100 MILLION or 200 MILLION illegals showed up on our doorstep when/if we offered amnesty?
there are over 6 BILLION non-usa citizens out there, rico. did you know that?
countries with billions of people in them are not doing so well. look at china and india. learn from what's around you.
for the usa to survive, we need to maintain quotas. that's the logical way to deal with immigration. that's the way most countries deal with immigration.
otherwise, you will have chaos.
Well... with that kind of mentality... why don't you tear down the Statue of Liberty since that Statue goes against your poor need not apply ideology.

this whole post is about amnesty. YOUR post is about amnesty.
imaginery amnesty?
like they say.. if it looks like a democrat, talks like a democrat, then, it must be a democrat. right?
immigration reform is just another way of saying amnesty.
as for weird idea of 200 million undocumented workers. lady, they don't know how many "undocumented workers" there are. so, if everybody in mexico and china or anywhere else just happened to want usa citizenship, what's to stop them from just flying over and getting it if there is an amnesty?
you idiots haven't even thought out what would happen if the numbers are higher then 11 million...now that is the honest truth.
get off the drugs already... they are making you stupid.
How many undocumented asian work for you for cheap labo now, and how much you have to pay after this amnesty.

You not showed reason to be against Amnesty.

Nobody invade this land for sure and we know that you worry about your commercial busyness.

Well then, it's also logical that the 2nd amendment has been made obsolete by rapid fire assault rifles like the AR-15. Is that what you're saying? Lets see you back paddle on that one.

why are you so against guns?

yeah. every now and then, we get some crazies shooting up the place.

but when you think about it some.. we have at least 11 million illegals in my country causing more damage then what a few crazines did with guns in the last year or so.

these illegals are taking away jobs from americans. the government is spending our hard earned money on these non-citizens. BILLIONS are being spent EACH year.

and our authorities are not doing anything about it?

you illegals are so funny.

obama says we cannot deport all these illegals, and then, he says he can force all of us to disarm?

if he can't deport 50 million illegals, how in the hell can he disarm 300 million americans?

if he wants to continue on this mission of disarming us, then, he should first make it law that politicians don't need bodyguards with guns anymore.

what's good for the goose is good for the gander. right?

obama is really stupid. I believe it is the result of many years of drug use. he's brain dead.

I was using that controversial issue as a statement of logic to attack your stupid thinking about illegals. I'm actually a gun owner. You like embellishing things, don't you? Now it's 50 million illegals. Last I checked, it was between 11 and 12 million. What makes you so right, when your stats are so wrong?

Whatever Obama did, it sure helped win the election. You and your horde are just sore losers. 2016 will be another repeat. With some hope, they'll reactivate the Chinese exclusion act and get you out. You're infecting my country and genome.

This guy has many chinese worker with a low wages, and them help him to save a lot money, and after this amnesty the Asian guy will pay $15 dollar an hour not $5 .

This is the truth, and Many nice chinese will come to help our economy with a fair commercial competition, not slave like this do.

Let's started with USA sex ratio men to women due to idiotic legal and illegal migration. Is no state in yea that has more women then man.
In some states as Alaska and Hawaii for etch woman 6-8 men.
It was more women in USA then men just 30 years ago. The legal emigration favors men as working force, tenth of thousands of Latino crossed the borders, Cuban, Chinese and oriental men came by boats.
San Francisco has not enough women. Many strait men becoming homosexuals because prostitutes asking high rates and police caching men who wants to pay for sex with women, but not men or masturbate in the sex shops. If you want invite a Russian or Ukrainian girl to vista you and want to pay there ticket it is almost impossible. If you want to marry a foreign girl you have to make at lest 50,000 a year. On the other hand Mexican men that crossed border will get residency from this bill.
Why we need women for a good economy. Ask Ausralians when was a shortage of women economy was dow. Men just was drinking and smoking.
British asked what AusrLians need the most. The answer was more women.
The ships with women from prisons and prostitutes was send there. Economy become very good. Men was getting married working hard and buying housing. Business was booming. You can read it on the history web.
USA styrene do not study history of other countries much.
This immigration reform does nothing. Giving some contractors $ to put additional fences( Mexicans digging tunnels under). Border patrol personal was cut, now they add some people. What back taxes. This illegal do not pay and worked on cash. How you cab ask them to pay is you cB't price they eared anything. They spend most of it on beer. Without changing rools more and more men will cross border and USA economy will collapse.

hey. guy. I think it is more than 50 million illegals...

but if you say it is just 11 million... think about it. that makes my argument stronger.

if obama cannot enforce the laws where 11 million illegals are concerned, how the hell is he going to force 300 million americans to turn over their guns?

we could use the same bullshit that you illegals are using to stay in the country... to prevent any of us from having to adhere to some bullshit law on gun control. you know... declare rights to privacy.
