Answer this question, wetbk: if you and the other wetbks are so valuable, so hard working, so full of family values, then how come your own people, mexiscums, encourage you to move to the US rather than help you find jobs? Here's the answer: you are lowlife, uneducated, vile, vulgar leeches.
Thanks, and we are eating at the same table for around 27 year(1986-2013) last amnesty.

Thanks

You are not even close to understanding what the article said. Try to block out the voices in your head and read it again.
There are laws in place that impose very stiff penalties on undocumented people who want to LEAVE the country. It is very strange that action has been taken that will remove the penalties for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to leave the country and for some reason you have a problem with it.
It is pretty clear that illegal immigration is not important to you. It is just old fashioned bigotry.
Laws. Penalties. Let me get this right. They are here illegally and you say that if they just leave, on their own...They will again be breaking the law..Wow! We are spending millions to ship this crap out of here but, if they try to go back to the third world on their own dime...their in trouble...Brilliant!
The three and ten year bars are very strange laws. It was imposed in 1996 and was meant to punish illegal immigrants, but it has had a much different effect. If somebody is in the US illegally for a year, they are automatically hit with a ten year penalty if they voluntarily leave the country to try to legalize their status. If they are here for more then six months and less than one year the penalty is 3 years.

Basically what it means is that if somebody tries to do the "right thing" and return home and try to come back legally they are barred from even applying for a visa for ten years.

On the other hand if they lay low and stay out of trouble they could probably stay here illegally forever.

The worst part of it is that if they do get caught in the US and are forcibly deported, the bars do not apply to them. They can apply for a visa right away.

It really is backwards logic and does not give anybody an incentive to leave. This new policy change allows the spouse of a citizen to apply to have the bars waived while still in the US. That is no easy feat, but it is better than nothing.

People talk about our "broken immigration system". There is a lot of truth to that and this is a good example.

I am an American citizen and with that I have the right to live and be with whom ever I damn well please, you may tell me to go back with my husband to his country, but he is not on welfare, he takes care of me so that I can raise our children, he pays his taxes, wants to buy a house and car, he wants to spend his money on our broken economy.. My husband was brought here as a child by his father he is well educated by our classrooms and has nothing to go back too there. As a citizen why would you want to send someone with an American education to another country to make money for them. Bigotry will not matter in the end.. When you die your hate will mean nothing to anyone. We just want to be a family an American family..

Well of course there is no free healthcare in the US, but in Mexico free healthcare is Constitutionally guaranteed for everybody.
I bet you did not know Mexico has a more modern healthcare system than the US. You learn something new everyday.
If the Mexican health care is so great, why are they dying to get into this country?

You make $80K a year and can't spell "welfare?"

You're more of a criminal than your husband. His is a civil offense. Yours is a felony.

A business graduate that can't spell 'outrageous?' Did you go to the same college as Linda?

Outrageous laws..... shall we repeal all the ones you don't like? How about the ones that send rapists and murderers to jail? They're outrageous too, aren't they?

Oh, and those pesky laws regarding fraud and identity theft too. If we get rid of those, nearly all the illegals would have nothing to worry about.

You illegal sympathizers are worse criminals than the illegals. You are all unconvicted felons.

You fear something. I thought it was your job, but maybe you are afraid a Mexican will take your woman. Maybe it already happened.
