Amnesty is just the right thing to do and a matter of time.

Mexico has declared war on America. Bring our troops home and push this sub human filth back

ask a politician before you give money or vote
1. does Israel have the right to exist,(then get out of their way when they salute and click their heels)
2.does the White race have a right to exist , then watch the grand sniveling and groveling begin.

your nation is in the hands of foreign parasites

It's only the "Right" thing to do because it serves your interests! Suppose the situation were flipped and we wanted to takeover Mexico? Would it still be the "Right" thing? As far as it being just a matter of time, we see it differently! We see it as just a matter of time before we send you all back. We can find you easily enough. We can do it! No matter what law barrack Hussein puts on the books, it can be repealed! And it will be! You will always have semi-fugitive class.

How stupid is the neocon leadership of the Republican party to think that supporting any form of amnesty could possible help their future electability.

Maybe true, Butt What about the 15 + Million who are UNINSUREABLE? Where do they Get their health insurance?
They wouldn't allow them to Get into MEDICARE ?
They Won't allow them into anything else?
They either have to Pay for everything ThemSelves or Be Poor to Get MEDICADE and That Doesn't work either.!
I was one of those 15 million UnInsureable People with a Disease I Was Born with, called T1 Insulin Diabetes.. I paid the ave of $5,000 a yr to take care of it Myself ! this since the 80's and that's over $15k yr Now ! May make $50k yr, but only have ave of $35k yr to Live on! All they had to do is lets us into Medicare and we'd even pay Tripple the Premium!
Still have HOPE that Obamacare is going to HELP you get inexpensive health care?

Think again.

Your $50,000 a year job isn't going to qualify you for a subsidy.

And you're going to have to pay MORE THAN $5,000 a year to get insurance. And then you have to first satisfy a large DEDUCTIBLE and then your insurance kicks in.

More and more information is coming in on how those who HAD insurance are being cancelled by the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS and are being offered policies at TEN TIMES what they had been paying.

This health INSURANCE scheme cannot possibly help MOST PEOPLE and still remain AFFORDABLE.

Obama would rather change the subject to immigration, rather than face the music about how EXPENSIVE Obamacare is going to be for so MANY who WERE able to afford insurance BEFORE all the MANDATES required by Obamacare.

It's funny how he's trying to divert attention away from his anti middle class healthcare plan by pushing an equally anti middle class amnesty. He makes Dennis the Menace look like a genius.

I just read a book about the extinction of japan. They are selling more diapers too old people than babies in your Country. You have 30-35 year old men and Women that do not want to procreate. EVER. And immigration in Japan is forbidden. The fact's and figures you list may be economical stats. But your Economy has been on the skids for 10 year's. Statisticians trying to figure out how to help you guys, isn't working. And Gene Otawni is a friend of mine and being from Oregon, has watched what illegals have done to his home State.

Nothing personal Juan! But look around you. We American must deal with the incursions of millions of illegal immigrants from all over the world, China, Africa, south east Asia, Jews from Russia, and central Americans, Mexicans being the most prolific. You don't know a thing about our govt except how to protest something to change it. To weaken or destroy something you may think of as an obstacle. Because you are Mexican, you think like a Mexican. Mexican thinking produced that f**ked up country to the south of us. You know the one where everyone wants to get away from! They bring their F**ked up thinking here. They want to remake us in Mexico's image. Can you blame us for not wanting this here? Please go back and help other Mexicans to stay home.

You should APPLY for the privilege of being in this country, just like everyone else.

Until you are part of the solution (legal documentation), you are still part of the problem.

Illegal immigration violates the laws of the United States.

Get in line with everybody else who wants to become a LAW ABIDING resident of this great nation!

The why doesn't Mexico allow poor Guatemalans into their country.

And btw--Obama's made such a mess out of this non-recovery and more and more jobs are going from full to part-time because of ObamaCare.

Mexico now has a LOWER unemployment rate than the US.

How about you put your money where your mouth is?

If anyone feels like moving into your home, let them--no door locks or window locks allowed. You also don't get to decide how long they stay or tell them not to come in because they are criminals or crazy or have a contagious illness.

They can stay as long as they like, and in exchange for their washing your dishes, in addition to shelter, you will provide food, clothes, education and healthcare. You used to pay your neighbor to wash your dishes, but you can pay this new person far less because they pay no taxes.

And, if they pop out a kid or two on your sofa, you have to add the kid's names to the house deed.

OK, now go outside. There is a long line of people who have asked to enter your home, and have been waiting and waiting because they followed the rules. Tell them they have to wait YEARS while those who just waltzed in without your permission can come and go as they please (as long as they vote Democrat).

To answer any of your concerns, the undocumented worker has been exploited by Americans. We work hard to support our families both here and in Mexico. I was raised in San Antonio, my father worked for the city and mother worked at a local hotel. They have both retired and returned to Progresso because of the hatred in the U. S. toward Mexicans. We do not ask for anything we are willing to work for everything we have. Many of us have earned citizenship and deserve the benefits that go along with it. Many of our children are citizens of the U. S. and should get what any other citizen gets.

Go Back! Go back! Go back! You all love to get smaltzy over the "Hatred" you've overcome in your time here as an illegal alien. But if you look closely, you'll realize that we Anglos don't really hate you, we just don't want you here. That's not hate! I like my neighbors, but I don't want them in my home forever, especially when their homes aren't so good. Mexico is a catholic, socialist, police state. Why in heck would anyone want to live there? Why would anyone want to have anyone from there living here? The outlook of Mexicans scares me. As I said, you'll want to remake America in Mexico's image and unknowingly cause all the same problems. Study The history of Spain and you'll know the fate of Mexico!
