<quoted text>What does it cost to edcuate and provide free meals for just one child of illegals??? Look into that and get back to us. Deporting the parents would save the taxpayers mucho dollare for just those two items that run us in the red o the possible twelve years that one child would be in school. Next, multiply that number by several million. In the end, deporation is cheaper. I didn't eve touch the cost of free social servces, ER care and incarcerations. We can't afford them.
They pay taxes so they pay for it and they pay more in the system then they use they leave in More then they use so don't whine about taxes they pay too

You have been brain-washed into believing the hype. They live multiple families in a single family abode, they send 5-6 kids from that dwelling to our schools, so how do you figure that their minimal share of the taxes pays for the entire cost to educate them and provide them with their free breakfasts and lunches? I can't begin to tell you how muh a teacher shells out of her own pocket to provide these kids with the needed pencils, paper and other school supplies that the need. Get it in your head, illegals do not pay their fair share for the services that they receive.

However at the time Reagan was totally behind the bill. He said he would refuse to sign any immigration reform bill that did not include legalization and a path to citizenship for over 3 million illegal aliens in the country. He also said it was "the right thing to do".
It was "the right thing to do" in the '80's. But Democrats weren't Orwellian Anachists who plan to use the Newbies AGAINST American families like they are today. Once the "progressives" took over the Democratic Party they became America's Enemy Within.

These politicians can aid, and abet the illegal aliens all they want, but they will be replaced in the next couple elections. It isn't just Republicans that want people to obey the law, Democrats , and Independents will join Republicans in replacing the people who do not respect our laws.

We have an adequate guest worker program that farmers can use to bring in workers to harvest their crops. The problem is farmers won't use it because they must provide housing, breaks and a decent wage for the workers.
By the way only about 3% of ILLEGAL ALIENS actually work in any form of agriculture. The balance work in housekeeping, child care, car washes, factories, construction, gardening, auto repair, restaurants, fast food, casinos - the list goes on and on. Many of these jobs are jobs housewives and students used to do.
Housewives that's a term I haven't heard in a while yes your right they do a lot more jobs then picking fruit but they are open to anybody who goes in so you just have to look the guest worker program is too completed with this form and that it needs to be simpler

They wouldn't close down. They would have to pay their new American workers more, that's all. Massive illegal alien deportations would be good for the economy all the way around.

Frankly, I'm beginning to think that the orwellian progressives will demand that obama be crowned Dear Leader for life. The American people proved to be too stupid to handle self government when they astounded the World by re-electing Obama in November.
We are already seeing the transition from "God Bless America" to "All Hail THE Obama".

Eleanor"]Family unity: If you are here illegally, get OUT!
... and TAKE your family WITH you!!

Eleanor \e-lea-nor\ as a girl's name is pronounced EL-a-nor. It is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Eleanor is "sun ray, shining light". Variant of Helen. Also possibly from the Greek name "eleos" meaning "compassion", or from German "ali" meaning "other, foreign". History: Eleanor of Aquitaine (12th century) was heiress to a large part of France, wife of two kings and mother of two more (Richard the Lionhearted and John). Her powerful personality, intelligence, and energy made her unique then. Literary: Jane Austen's Eleonora Dashwood in "Sense and Sensibility". First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt; Italian actress Eleonora Duse; actress Elinor Donahue; women's rights activist Eleanor Smeal.
Hmmm I do not see you name anywhere that it says "US originated " so you shouldn't talk ELEANOR

They can bring in all the illegals the government can find. They will have their own neighborhoods, like the AA do, and they will vote as a block. The rest of America was busy watching American Idol to see the the take over coming, and the Democrats helped it happen. So go reelect them as they welcome you to your new America. Make sure you give them all your guns first. This is what the greatest generation fought for, and died.

Now the Illegals are rallying to DEMAND even more than a pathway to citizenship. NOW they demand that millions and millions of their relatives still in their OWN countries be give a FREE PASS to the Land of the Freebies too.

Are American cowardly and self loathing enough to stand for this insulting nonsense. What pass for Democrats these days will.

???? Why would they close down? There are millions and millions of citizens who cannot find jobs. Are you trying to say Americans are just too lazy to work? Are you suggesting Americans would rather go hungry than put in a day's labor?

I don't bash the immigrants, why bash the citizens?
