nope - "self-deportation" is as absurd a fantasy as mass is.
amnesty WILL happen in one form or another - eventually.
you loons gnashing your teeth over it won't stop it.

Why would they remain here without jobs and benefits? I thought they were here to work and improve their lives? How would that be improving their lives?

Enjoy your wet dream/fantasy no amnesty is going to happen. Our stupid fools in congress will just keep kicking this ball down the road until we get some real Americans in congress and then your illegal amigos are going home. In the meantime it will just be the status quo which is better than the alternative.

The problem here is that when you guys think about illegal immigration you always think about ALL Mexican people. I do respect ALL hard working Americans & I didn't mean to insult anybody here.

Read my reply to your buddy "ha ha" in regards to your false claims of being self-righteous and bigoted. Just what facts that we have posted in here have you pointed out as mistakes? No, setting you and your fellow defenders of illegals straight is like shooting fish in a barrel. You don't have a damned leg to stand on nor any viable arguments for violating our immigration laws. All you have is stupid race card.
Now that is spot on my friend. "Ha ha" aka "frito bandito" has been saying the same nonsense since at least 2008.Every time he goes to a la rata meeting, he comes back and posts all the b.s they told him.

Thank you for your kind remarks. A welcome change from all the hate filled insults from the anti-Americans in here. Yes, my volunteer work consists of helping our poor citizens. It gives me great pleasure to help them. I will always stand up for the rule of law also and work against those who don't give a damn about us or this country for whatever anti-American agenda they have. Whether they be employers who hire illegals while giving our own workers the shaft, those who have a racist ethnocentric agenda to fill this country up with their own kind via illegal immigration or our politicians who are facilitating this travisty for power and votes. I will continue to work for America and Americans till my dying breath.
thanks Oldglory......I agree totally and you are a true patriot.

Definitions:
Alien, Immigrant, Illegal Alien, Undocumented Immigrant

These related terms are often used in deliberately confusing and conflicting
ways. Here is a set of definitions that will help you sort out the
difference.
IMMIGRANT: In popular usage, an "immigrant" is generally understood to be a
person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence.
Under this definition, therefore, an "immigrant" is an alien admitted to the
U.S. as a lawful permanent resident. The emphasis in this definition is
upon the presumptions that (1) the immigrant followed U.S. laws and
procedures in establishing residence in our country; (2) he or she wishes to
reside here permanently; and (3) he or she swears allegiance to our country
or at least solemnly affirms that he/she will observe and respect our laws
and our Constitution.

ALIEN: By contrast, an "alien" is generally understood to be a foreigner --
a person who comes from a foreign country -- who does not owe allegiance to
our country.

ILLEGAL ALIEN: An "illegal alien" is a foreigner who (1) does not owe
allegiance to our country; and (2) who has violated our laws and customs in
establishing residence in our country. He or she is therefore a criminal
under applicable U.S. laws.

The term "illegal alien" is used by U.S. citizens who believe that
non-citizens entering our country must comply with our immigration laws.

The term "illegal alien" is predicated upon U.S. immigration law
which requires foreigners entering the U.S. to comply with our country's
rules and laws regarding entry into, and residence within, our country.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT: The term "undocumented immigrant" is an oxymoron
(the parts conflict). An immigrant is synonymous with "permanent legal
resident." The old term for the document authorizing a permanent legal
resident is "green card." The term "undocumented" is derived from the
accurate term "undocumented aliens" who are often called "border crossers."
Proper terms are "illegal alien" or "undocumented alien" but not
"undocumented immigrant." Although not commonly used, the term "documented
alien" accurately refers to foreign nationals who have an unexpired
non-immigrant visa such as H-1B.

Most U.S. citizens do not use the term "undocumented immigrant"
and prefer, instead, the more descriptive and accurate term "illegal alien".

The term "undocumented immigrant" is used by those who believe in
"open borders", i.e., non-regulation of foreigners entering into and
assuming residence in the U.S., including even those foreigners who owe
allegiance to a foreign government and/or who may intend harm to the U.S.
