Illegal aliens have no rights to invade this country whether they think the risk is worth it or not...stay home....we don't want you here illegally..

It's too bad that those legally waiting in line can't sue..

Reasoning: They just have to make it to US, and everything will be fine (freebies, etc.).
If we stopped employing them, if Obama would stop teasing them with imminent amnesty...this wouldn't be happening.
Also, Mexicans must learn to change their government. They have certainly learned protest skills, working with elected officials, now have a good K-12 American education, and playing victim so that anyone who is against them is racist. I agree with Norris' statement, "...problems develop, people begin to resent things, people begin to defend their rights, to defend themselves, defend their property and their livelihood."

I am sorry so many deaths occurr, however, Mexicans need to do what Booker T. Washington suggested to newly freed slaves, "Lay your buckets down where you are!"
Change Mexico, Mexicans!

No truth in that statement. The problem has existed for many years. President Obama is not teasing.

Easy for you to say, do you not see the violence going on in Mexico due to the U.S being #1 DRUG CONSUMERS? people are terrified and migrating. Especially those in the Northern States of Mexico and FYI look at a map of the AMERICA'S and count how many countries are below Mexico because most that come here illegally from the caribbean or Latin America usually come here through Mexico and many come here faking to be Mexicans so if they get deported they wont get deported all the way back to their countries. Just look at the recent massacre of 72 immigrants in which all were mostly central american and then brazilean & Ecuadoran.Inform yourself before you opinion. U.S is #1 reason why people are migrating here in the first place.

Have you been to the border zone? The water stations are out there. "Desert Angels" looking out for the illegal migration of criminals and slave labor. Outstanding.

OK, Just trying to follow the logic:

(Out of one side of the mouth) We are bad bad Americans because we consume a lot of dope and are causing Mexicans to be violent against each other and kill foreign migrants.....

(Out of other side of mouth)...even though we are such bad people, everyone wants to come here to live among us.

These people are poor individuals. They risk everything to come to the land of the free. The opportunity to raise their children and bear their fruits of thy labor.

Only problem is that 99.9% clearly understand that Welfare and other government giveaways and benefits are the best means to their properous life.

These Individuals who are fighting for the rights of equal-ness are only fighting for their right to get the benefits of taking.

Lets not b ull s hit each other. Everyone here knows that this is what it is all about. Taking the Government for whatever it can. And yet most employers are doing what they can. To take advantage of these immigrants so they can pocket more money.

Too bad, people do not hire contractors, who hire legal qualified craftmens.

So be it. Don't come crying about the illegals when you want to hire people at sub-strandard wages. I can prove to most people that hiring the qualified craftsman will save you money.

Time and Labor. But when you hire a person who put 1000 bricks at $100, d amn it sure ain't going to be straight.

I am a craftsman, the few of a dying art. Today, it just, put it together and make it work for 90 days.

It wouldn't be worth the risk if our super-corrupt govt officials would take away the govt benefits and job opportunities for illegals.

Illegal Immigrant's Heart Transplant is Covered. Her Rent is Not.
By Shefali Kulkarni, Tue., Aug. 31 2010 @ 12:17PM

In June, the Voice wrote about Julia Amparo-Alvarado, a 42-year-old illegal immigrant from Guatemala who faced death without a heart transplant. The mother of two was navigating a complex path of gaining insurance coverage despite her immigration status.

Three weeks ago, Julia managed to get fully covered through Medicaid for a heart transplant. Her insurance will cover the surgery, physical therapy, and even the cost of child care while she is recovering.
