The message is and should be loud and clear:

If you're here illegally, we don't care what you think and you don't nor should you have a voice in *our* Government.

Only if they follow 287(g) and if ICE does not decide to cut them loose. And we all know about ICE's catch and release program...

But.....But.....Who will mow my lawn?

Who will watch my children?

Who will clean my kitchen?

Who will do my laundry?

Who will hand me my Big Mac at the drive thru window?

Who will cook my Big Mac?

Who's going to trim my shrubs and prepare my Whopper?

I'm so very upset. This just turns my world upside down.

dear Average Overweight American... Let's look at this another way. You may now give up that Gym membership you never use because you do not like people looking at you tushie shoved into white spandex and looking like a lightbulb. Instead look at the benefits.

AEROBICS - chasing wild children across the neighborhood so you do not have to pay for damages they have caused to property. Awesome wind sprints this way. Want longer distance training, take them to the zoo and find out how many miles of road you have to cover to kepe security off their tails and yours.

STRETCH AND TWISTS AND BENDS - doing dishes and laundy and add in weight lifting with baskets and bags of groceries. Whoa... By the time the summer is over you will be graduating to the heavy stuff - hauling those kids under each arm.

STRENGTH AND AEROBIC COMBINED - that lawn mower! Goal for end of fall - mowing an acre with an old push mower!

Hey, look at the benefits - you will work off that Whopper weight and save money by not paying for a gym membership or someone to cater to your lightbulb butt!

You can use the saved money to remove that extra skin left hanging after the workouts.

That is the sickest thing I have ever heard. This is, to me, like slavery way back when. No one wanted slaves to become a part of our country due to the fear of change, but they had no problem bringing them here to slave for the greedy Americans. Once slavery ended it left the poor slaves to survive by themselves. No education, no work, and to this day, very little support. Immigrants do need to come here legally and documented, but they do not deserve to be shot down as if they were not human like the rest of us. FYI there is a five to ten year waiting list for Hispanics to become legal in America, so I would sure jump that border too if my family was starving. If "America the Great" really wanted to shut the border, they would shut it and make it final. Unfortunately, shutting the border would lose all the money they receive from just talking about it.
Not only are these immigrants human, but they also have children here. Children deserve to have both parents in their lives. By deporting the parents of these "illegal immigrants," parties responsible for deporting them would be creating a spike in the criminal youth due to the child being in a single parent home. I don't know the statistic on it, but I am sure somewhere you can find that children being in single parent homes are more at risk for criminal activity. I don't like statistics anyways. I just know that I am a hard worker, "All American," but I still have a heart. I know that people are people regardless of their nationality, sex, religion or what ever else. I love without boundaries, because I guess I know what it is like to be hated. Praise God I was not hated by the entire country.
Oh and btw -- I would love to inform you about your job situation. Fast Food is always hiring, so jump in and fill out your application if you need a job that bad. At least the immigrants that work at these places are not ashamed, and they bust their tails sixteen hours a day, seven days a week. I have rarely seen an American that stays at a fast food place making 7.00 an hour, and still continues their employment through as if they ran the place. I praise God that I am an american, and I also praise God that I have a heart of understanding. Shweew. I know that God sees my heart, so when he comes back.. Ewwie. People will be judged on how it is they judge others. Praise God. Good night

To equate people who come here illegally by choice to slaves who had no choice is wrong. We owed it to those we hauled here (well not my relatives, they immigrated legally between WWI and WWII, worked hard and made a life and taught my father solid work ethics which he passed onto us children and my husband and I are passing on to our children) to make it right.

Illegals broke laws to get here. Confusing the two is an insult to those descended from Black and Asian slaves.

There are quite a few who will take the jobs. You would be shocked. I used to do long hours, hot, sometimes dangerous and physically demanding jobs (two at once for some time) while going to college full time. My husband worked for five years of more doing yard work, painting, etc to put himself through college. At one point he was working two jobs while I was working one and going to college nights and weekends.

We have a lot of teens stepping into these fast food jobs now that we have cracked down on hiring of illegals in my county. Not one fast food place closed, not one fast food place suffered. Not one restaurant in general saw prices go up, etc. We have seniors working the morning shift at a local Burger Kings. These jobs are the ones taken to supplement income, gain work skills, save for college, etc. Neighbor's daughter works 10 - 12 hours at a local water park's concession stand during the on season to pay for college.

These jobs will fill.

Please do not insult the descendants of slaves by comparing those who broke laws to get here to them. You are also insulting those who are still being brought here for slavery. Yes, still alive and well in the US - it is the majorly dirty little secret in Washington - the targeting of traffickers while ignoring the diplomats illegally bringing girls here to use as slaves and s*x slaves.

rachel you have been taught revisionist history it seems, It was black african chiefs who enslaved rival tribes, sold them into slavery to europeans, and also kept slaves for their own use, just as slavery was practiced here i8n the america's long before any white pale face man arrived on its shores
native american indians enslaved other indians from other tribes and practiced genocide as well, again before any white man arrived here in america.you need more history lessons rachel ,guess what white slavery existed right along black slavery for hundreds of years as well,black moors and middle eastern pirates sailed up to europe and kidnapped whole villages of white people, took them back to their country and sold them as slaves, and many women were sold as sex slaves as we still have to this day. the white sex slave trade around the world.and mexico is in deep into sex slave trade, as they import young girls into america, then put them in rooms locked up to sell their bodies for sex.they just broke up a major sex slave operation in 4 states indiana was one of them. all the criminals running it were mexicans.so rachel do you support prostituting young little mexican girls,cause that's whats happening to many of them when they arrive here illegally , smuggled in by coyotes.aka human smugglers.Im guessing rachel voted for obama indeed lol.typical of lefty feel good liberals,most wars we got into was mainly by liberals saying we got to help those countries, they're evil leaders are harming the people, we need humantarian mission haha.

awwwwwwwwwwww rachel p how sweet , are you mother theresa reincarnated.I'm guessing rachel is in a hot steamy relationship with her mexican gardener. oh rachel by the way, when slavery ended in america, many slaves chose to remain on the same plantations they worked.they didn't flee back to africa, they actually liked their bosses, and guess what rachel, slaves were an investment, you don't buy something that makes you a profit to mistreat it, most slaves were well taken care of, and also rachel, turn on the tv set,slavery still exist in africa , that's why many black people can trace their roots back , cause many slave owners and slave sellers kept very meticulous records of the slaves.better study up on how bad irish immigrants were treated, denied work, hung, killed, starved even in america . jobs were handed to blacks over irish catholic immigrants.let's not forget the great potato famine in ireland where 1 million irish starved too death, look around rahcel at crime rates now, look at our jails and prisons filling up with criminal illegals, you still pity them rachel as they gang infest cities with graffitti and murder.but rachel probaly lives in rural area away from the big city,one of those do good liberal looking in from the outside. or living in a gated community.so rachel you are saying young legal american kids should have to compete with illegals always.

Ok. Well I'm sorry if I offended anyone with what I said, but it is a touchy subject for me. I guess it is not easy to get my point across. Slaves were brought here. But could you imagine your family starving, and you have no way to support them? Would you go to any length to give them what they need? Would you let your sick mother die in front of you because you are unable to supply her with medicine? Is it that dying woman's fault she wasn't born on the right side of the border? Have a heart please. I've been called alot worse than that so good luck hurting my feelings about it. I stand firm in the fact that documentation and coming here the right wayq is the only WAY! I do not believe in ripping a house hold apart because Mommy was born on the other side of the border. Idk. That is just how I feel. I am deeply sorry for my uneducated way of relating this situation to slavery. I just felt as though it was a way to relate the circumstances. These humans are being treated like dirt. I do not support the creeps, but the mothers and fathers that work and support their children.. what harm have they caused you? I do believe that slaves were not welcomed into the community with pats on their backs, because America was afraid of change. I don't know it all. I'm 22 years old, married, college student, and a full time worker. I have alot on my plate too. I praise God for the blessings I have, and pray that everyone gets the same chance as I've had. IDk.. sorry for offending any one.. Have a nice day! <3 and stop being so rude. Agree to disagree!
