Many of the people that were spoken to were not natives to our country, so asking them their point on illegal immigration is pointless, that's like asking a illegal to stay and while your at it finish draining the economy. What a crap of bull article, send the kids packing right alongside their parents packing!

They are not "undocumented"...the y are ILLEGAL...as in "illegal aliens"...and they are not immigrants...the legal definition of an immigrant is someone who LEGALLY immigrated to this country and has a valid green card, valid social security number, and a valid driver license or valid state id card and they have rights...immigrants don't need rights as they already have rights...and illegal aliens are NOT immigrants...an immigrant is a legal alien, and an illegal alien is an alien who is illegal and has NO rights here...especially an illegal alien has absolutely NO right whatsoever to be here and shouldn't be here in the 1st place...federal law SAYS that illegal aliens are to be deported; not rewarded...no rewarding people who broke the law...we are NOT responsible for them...their home countries are responsible for them and their parents...we owe them NOTHING...we did NOT force them to illegally cross our borders to invade our country or to overstay a visa, and steal our jobs and benefits...we are NOT responsible for their predicament and we do not owe them legalization...they belong in their home country...they are trespassing on U.S. soil and are job thieves...they are criminals

The powers that REALLY control our government have decided that we will be merged with mexico. They see great profit from allowing cheap labor to be subsized by the American citizen.
The Bush family has been working for an NAU since G.H.W. Bush was President and once Rubio gets a foothold it will accelerate the process with Jeb Bush and his mexican sons taking powerful roles in the merger.
They all knew that the American citizen would never agree to having their standard of living lowered and having US sovereignty destroyed, so they have all been working without the American citizen and flooding the country with hispanics.
They are the true enemy of the American citizen.

So, why the people that you voted for don't deport them by the way? Maybe because you don't want to be a dish washer for 7 per hour, isn't true?

EXCUSE ME???!!! I've done farmwork and fieldwork, factory work, warehouse work and convenience-store-cashier work...you can't tell me that U.S. citizens,[and I am NOT talking about anchor babies, but REAL citizens], will not do field work and farm work...I did field work and farm work for 12+ years...until I got a better job...I was not ashamed to get my hands dirty to feed my kids and pay the rent...illegal alien criminals come here illegally because they have ZERO respect for the laws of the U.S. and to steal our jobs and sell drugs and freeload off U.S. taxpayer dollars in the form of the benefits that these criminals steal...I know what I've seen and experience...I worked elbow to elbow with these criminals in the field and other places...I've seen the crimes these criminals commit and the anchor babies they deliberately and intentionally have on U.S. soil just to get welfare and food stamps and public housing...and they laugh about it and make fun of us Americans as being too stupid and gullible to stop them...they ALL need to be deported and permanently barred from this country for the rest of these criminals lives...deportation, not legalization...for these criminals...

My hubby at the time was part of the 1986 IRCA amnesty...70%+ of the applications were FRAUDULENT...we saw CRIMINALS get the amnesty...after that, these former criminals called all their friends and relatives south of the border and told them to hightail it up here illegally and to lay low until the stupid, gullible gringos would give them another amnesty...that is WHY I am dead-set against another amnesty for these ungrateful criminals...deport all of them and their anchor babies too...

Arizona's economy also went down After signing sb1070. Did you know that.
Arizona has lost $217m in spending by conference visitors and $388m in economic output.

So are you trying to convince us that conference visitors stopped going to Arizona because they don't want illegal aliens?

illegals have brought what was fairly decent paying jobs below living wages, why in the devils hell should anyone work for below minium wage??? Clearly these certain set of people have surpressed our economy so bad many working class people have lost homes due to americans who can not get a livable wage job, illegals and immigrants are now being explotied for cheap labor who lives like that??? But a bunch of uneducated, undetermined and demoralized people not to say they are bad people but the wave of them is crushing the nation. For you to call americans lazy your crazy why in the world should we now start settling for less because of you??? Just know the spot light has been put on the issue its just a matter of time american will be heard first, this is insane
