"The nation of immigrants has a problem older than Ellis Island. Who should be allowed into America and who should not?"

Immigration has never been a problem, we are a nation of immigrants.

WETBACKS SNEAKING ACROSS THE BORDER ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS.

THEY ARE AN INVADING ARMY OF CRIMINALS THAT MUST, MUST BE STOPPED !!!

Yes, CRIMINALS, as soon as they illegally step foot on American soil they have proven that they have NO respect for our laws.

Get rid of the unconstitutional prohibitive drug laws and welfare laws and there won't be any immigration problem. There wasn't before. In earlier times they came here to work - now they come to get on the dole! Whose fault is that?

They are not more criminals than the "dry back" (a new term here used for fun) that arrived via a boat from Europe, or from migrations from Canada way back when. What's the difference? Well... it was "us" back then that were (as you put it) the "INVADING ARMY OF CRIMINALS".

How to you reconcile this position that essentially says it was OK since that was "us"... but it's not OK any longer, since it's "them"?

You are obviously one of "those" that are unable to differentiate between 'legal immigration' through proper channels and sneaking across the border under the cover of darkness.

It is NOT OK it has never been OK.

You are right when you say that 600 years ago the land now known as the USA belonged to other peoples. If we go that route, however, I - here in the Netherlands - would be kneeling to the Spanish king,as this country was under Spanish rule at that time.
When 300 million people have melted together with one language, traditions, religions etc.,they have become a nation. And others, who are sneaking their way into that nation, are ILLEGALS and should be deported.

Estimates of undocumented immigrants here usually number about 20 million. That is about the number of people in NYC, LA and Chicago COMBINED. Nothing short of war could deport that many people.

My ancestors were NOT criminals. They came to America, obeyed the laws, and became LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS !! They did NOT bring loads of illegal drugs. They did NOT shoot at border agents or police. They did NOT expect a handout from America. They were immigrants....NOT an invading army of criminal like the ones coming from the south. And yes, they ARE criminals !

Big difference: Then, for immigrants, it was do or die from starvation, or disease; now its,'go down to the local welfare office'. That is also the reason why Canada and USA have built their country up while Mexicans are destroying their country. Mexicans are alway looking for an excuse, to be made an exception. Once we give in to that, then we will step on that slippery slope downward.

He knows, and quite frankly doesn't care. What he does care about are the potential votes coming their way through illegals voting in 2012. Thats why he is telling the border patrol not to pick any more illegals up. Obama is a fraud, killing our economy, jobs, and bringing this country to a severe energy crisis. I heard gas will be $6.00 a gallon by early summer. How is that Hope and Change working for you folks all over the USA. Vote this bastard out of office in 2012. Restore America and put the skids to Obama's ideology.... Socialism.

But but but...the democRATS love him. He's everything they've ever dreamed of.

Politics and party over country and honor. The epitome of the communist-aligned democRATic party.

ONEnation, NetRoots, CodePink, MediaMatters, the Joyce Foundation, the Woods Foundation, Annenberg, the DSA, SEIU, ACLU, and every anti-American communist subversive extant are not gonna be happy if their great black kenyan fake, phony, and fraud is exiled back to kenyan, impeached, or jailed.

Not to mention his entire support contingent of anti-American radical, marxist, communist, corrupt subversives, terrorists, felons, union thugs, lobbyists, and paid shills.

Vote democrat if you can't bear to see this happen...or wish for the complete and utter destruction of the USA.

Did they come here legally? Were their intentions to become productive AMERICAN citizens, or were their intentions to work enough to survive and bring the rest of the family over later, meanwhile learning how to milk the system? Do they fly the AMERICAN flag in their yard? Mexicans are here to live a better life. I cannot blame them for that. With everything going on in Juarez, who can? Just do the right thing and be LEGAL to be here, and be LOYAL to the country you have chosen. Don't come here just for a handout....We give out too many already.
