mexico is a big country. if she was having problems in one city, she could move to another.

another thing, mexico is not a poor country. it is one where the rich there do not want to help their poor brothers.

bottomline, why should america and americans be forced to assist her?

why isn't that the responsibility of her home country?

the world is full of poor people who need assistance. why are we being forced to sacrifice our needs.. the futures of our own children to save these people?

that is not right.

Great story… it is pass time for immigration reform; these people have been here long enough and they deserve legal status.
The right is nothing but hate-filled bigots and when these people become citizen they will not forget who was against them.

so, tell me, genius. how many of these foreigners do you want to allow in all at once?

20 million, 50 million, 100+ million?

you say I hate these people?

I'm just wondering how many the usa can support when we are already bankrupt and have double digit unemployment?

another thing, you make it sound like these people are entitled to stay in the usa. explain.

American immigration laws need to be enforced!

An AMERICAN could have been working for Mary Kay, but they gave the job to an illegal Mexican. Mary Kay Cosmetics should be imposed a penalty for hiring illegals. How many MORE are in their employ?

Part of the immigration problem is the LACK OF ENFORCEMENT.

If you sneek INTO the country and get caught, you should be DEPORTED. <period>

The rancid left long ago recognized the potential in pandered to POS illegal mexiholes to be future demoratic voters. And greedy illegal mexiholes who certainly have no love for or allegiance to America are very amenable to being bribed for their votes and should they ever be amnestied would have no problem voting for socialist communists. The rancid left has no problem with policies that are clearly bad for America as long as it helps keep rancid leftist quislings in power. Low/no knowledge obama supporters are saying, "huh?"

Ronald Reagan amnestied 3 million of them.

Peter Robinson, a former Reagan speechwriter, agrees. "It was in Ronald Reagan's bones — it was part of his understanding of America — that THE COUNTRY WAS FUNDAMENTALLY OPEN to those who wanted to join us here."

You mean the Simpson-Mazzoli Act.

Perhaps you should read it, and explain to the forum why the Democrats blocked the enforcement requirements of the law then, and now.

When you get done with that, you can stand up and parrot Ted Kennedy's "the borders will be secured and there will never be another amnesty" speech.

You are an ignorant tool. Phony Marine Corp Patty. What don't you understand about illegal, dumbass. I don't give a shit if they've been here for 50 years, if they are illegal they need to be deported. No more votes for the Dumbass Democrat Criminal Party. That's all the left wants, more votes from these non English speaking pieces of shit.
Pieces of shit! Really! And what do you think you are a golden turd? Let me tell you something you have no clue what it's like to live these peoples lives and I hope you never do. I have seen first hand why they leave their own countries. We all are immigrants to this fuckd up country, unless you are a full blooded Native American.

if you think this country is so fuckd up, why don't you leave?

frankly, it's people who think like you that makes it look fuckd up.

if somebody is illegal, they have absolutely no business being in the usa. PERIOD.

I don't give a hoot that these people are not happy with their home countries. it doesn't mean we are obligated to help them.

your compassion to help them is out of place.

it is obvious YOU would jeopardize the future of our own children to help foreigners.

Glad you brought up Reagan's amnesty, moron. Reagan considered it to be his biggest Presidential MISTAKE, because it turned out not to be the original 300,000 as intended but for more that half of the 5 million illegal aliens in the country, close to one third of the amnesties given were based on document fraud. Reagan thought he was trading a SMALL amnesty for all important workplace enforcement and increased border security, which didn't happen because of the open border treason lobby killed it along with Congressional betrayal.

More BS! Reagan never articulated or wrote anything to the effect that his amnesty was a mistake. It was actually that crook Ed Meese that tried to channel Reagan. Get educated, for my (Jesus) sake.

Just what have they done to deserve legal status? First, they had no respect for our immigration laws, came here took jobs they had no right to, committed either the felonies of stealing ID's to work or tax evasion by working under the table. They gave birth on our dime and drained our tax coffers in many other ways also.

If anyone is hate filled it is illegal aliens to do this to our own citizens. There is nothing hate filled or bigoted about wanting respect for our immigration laws and enforcing them. This isn't just a right wing issue. We collectively as Americans are obligated to respect our immigration laws and not reward those who break them.

You say something about their character right here. They will seek revenge against Americans just for wanting our immigration laws respected and enforced? Yeah, we really need to make these hate-filled bigots into citizens....NOT!

I guess if a bank robber manages to hide out long enough with your logic he should be able to keep his ill gotten booty and not be prosecuted for bank robbery?

If these mostly Mexicans were truly so bad off in Mexico they would come here and claim refugee status but they don't because they haven't a leg to stand on so they just jump our borders anyway. It isn't our responsibility anyway to fix Mexican lives nor any other illegal alien's life at the expense of our own citizens.

No, most Americans are NOT immigrants. They are citizens of this country. Just because their ancestors were immigrants doesn't make them "immigrants". Are you really this clueless? The so-called Native Americans whose tribes were indigenous to THIS country are all full fledged U.S. citizens today. It is only whiney Mexicans crying over the past when their tribal ancestors weren't even indigenous to this country. Try taking a history lesson and stop living in the past.
