You bet they'll lose their "cultural protection!"

This all makes sense to me! People come to America basically out of greed! They want more! The gang of 8 bill says nothing about feeding the hungry, they just want to accommodate the current masses because they are here! Well, sneaking in and consuming the American dream is back firing! Ask me if I care?!!!

They feel American in every way except the paples...well, this proves it! Bought the kiddies for a better life...you betcha'

More proof that immigration and more specifically illegal immigration is not only bad for the country and its citizens but for the immigrants and their families. The do gooders who want to bring everybody to the U.S so we can decrease our standard of living and improve theirs, all of course while not affecting the standard of living for our rulers, do not consider the over all effects of what they promote. Illegal immigration only ensures an unlimited supply of cheap labor. Naturally the exploitation of illegal immigrants and the change in life style are detrimental to them yet so called “compassionate” people encourage them to keep on coming.
Bringing well educated people in from other countries drains brain power and economic power from their home country. There is a shortage of doctors in third world countries but not a shortage of doctors from third world countries in the U.S. While bringing in skilled workers from other countries will make some wealthy people wealthier by reducing the wages of skilled workers it also makes their home country poorer by removing much needed talent from their work force.
Would it not be better for the world if those who came here and received an education they could never acquire in their homeland returned home and helped their country to develop rather than staying here and improving?

You should see the documentary on this case. Big business made it into a "frivolous" law suit, but the woman was SERIOUSLY hurt, 3rd degree burns on her thighs and private parts! Loosely placed top! They had been warned several times about the severity of the hot temp of their coffee. Looks like big business succeeded in turning this into what it wasn't, and that was a frivolous law suit! Had it happened to you the way it happened to her, you would have done the same thing!

I find it amusing that Mexican Pride called me a coward. I'm not the one who had to leave my homeland because my government thinks so little of me they literally threw me, like garbage, over the fence into the US. I'm not afraid to tell my government that I want all illegal aliens rounded up, violently if necessary, and deported. I'm not the one in a foreign country screaming for rights to which I an not entitled. I'm not the one who screams racism if I don't get want I want immediately. Instead, I'm the one who has ICE on his speed dial and who is personally responsible for having at least 11 wet backs deported. I'm the one who is telling you leeches to pack your bags. There well never be amnesty or a path to citizenship. The next president will be a republican and he will throw your asses out. Adios, pendejos!!!!!!!!#
we will just see maricon we all know the out come coward! Viva mi raza puto!

I rather think that those who use their American-born kids as pawns and shields and as a means to raid an entitlement system in which they hardly, if ever contributed, are the real cowards in the scheme of things.

Blaming the US food supply for eating till she got diabetes, what a joke. I guess we can sue mexico for gas from beans n chile then. If you ever go shopping in an area with a large immigrant populace, the number of 2ton annie welfare mommas towing 5 anchor shoplifters with them pushing a basket full of chips and soda answers the question as they whip out their ebt cards to pay for it. You are what you eat, a proven fact.

Amen! Yet they manage to wedge their tubby butts into their brand new vehicles as they drive off with their fake licenses. If they can afford to buy the car and put gas in it, how is it that they even qualify for the EBT card? Oh, wait, I already know. They NEVER tell the truth on their entitlement applications. The little tidbit about all the income that comes into the household is never truly revealed. What gives anybody the idea that giving them legality, will suddenly turn them into patriotic, loyal and law-abiding Americans???
