Don't kid yourselves,they sure as hell knew when they came here, they were breaking the law. Don't buy into the old "I'm a poor mexican only wanting to work." Time to get out, the jig is up. Don't forget all your wives,girlfriends,kids,husband s.Any relative I forgot to mention also.

I think the law is already in place which makes these people illegal. Its not that we hate these people who are here to work but that they came to the United States illegally. Why do we need more law's to make it even more illegal that what our current law is? Recently, they have suspended the recent GA law allowing police officers from checking immigration status which is crazy. Our police are perfect for enforcing immigration and they could use the extra work for the police department and stop giving us tickets...

Oh, suddenly 'immigrants'(aka: Illegal Aliens) care about the law. Uh huh.

So, here's the gist of it: GTFO.

Funny how the gov't will go after businesses that hire illegals, yet social services, a gov't entity will reward them with assistance?

The government let them wander into the country, now they want businesses to send them home to their drug corrupt countries(caused by our insatiable demand) Guess what Arizona and Georgia, they're not goin south, they're headed north.

So later on down the road we can make more laws to back up the new unenforced laws we are making today.

You are all missing one huge point:

Even if they are made "legal" they are coming in too numerous a quantity. You will still end up having your state become Mexico! Legal or illegal you will still in the end be surrounded by Mexicans and Mexican culture. And you and your culture/language, etc, will be pushed to the side or banned outright.

People qualify their stance by saying they're for LEGAL immigration but against ILLEGAL entry. Fine. Just know that IT DOESN'T MATTER WHICH WAY THEY DO IT...they are NOT assimilating!! Legal OR illegal, they want to transform the U.S. into a Third World spanish speaking country where Euro-Americans(you and me) are marginalized and not allowed to speak out about it. We're handing our country to them a a platter.

ALL IMMIGRATION has to be halted...not just the illegal entries. Get it?
