"We are tired of being dehumanized in our own communities," the group said in an e-mail. "We are tired of politicians who classify our children as less than human. "

I beg to differ. They have no community. They are here illegally so it is not "their" community at all

I say if the shoe fits then what can you say, their actions speak louder than words. In 2008 it been estimated that 340,000 anchor babies were born to illegal alien woman here in the U.S.. That's just in the year of 2008. This is now the last 2 months of 2010, how many more have they popped out since then? These are the offspring of illegal aliens who are not citizens of this country and yet we're stuck paying for them and paying for them. How Many more?? I'm not PC and don't give a rats ass whether they like it or not. Don't like it? Go back home where you're comfortable in your own land, language and culture. Continue the coddling and you get more of the same.

If you can't take the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen! Guess what, we're tired of PAYING FOR THEIR SORRY ASSES! They abuse our hospitality and burden our social services and law enforcement with their irrisponsible, reckless, and crimminal behavior! It is unsustainable and is costing us BILLIONS! IDENTIFY AND DEPORT A.S.A.P!

Should have used "cockroach" instead?
