OMG, showing up stating I'm here does not warrant citizenship nor amnesty. It's called applying for citizenship, what thousands of immigrants legally and proudly do every year.

Now these people completed THE journey.

To all ILLEGAL aliens or so called "undocumented" immigrants. Here is YOUR reform.

My sorry ancestors were born here. We are from Seattle Wa. How about you, oh ya you snuck over from Juarez Mexico. Why do think "Illegal" means legal Citizen?Go through proper channels? Is it because you refuse to obey our laws, like the rest of your people?

So your ancestors were Native Americans from Washington state. Interesting.

If you have such a profound dislike for Mexican people why did you decide to move to the Mexican border. The US covers about 4 million square miles, but you have chosen to live on the absolute edge of the landmass.

It is kind of like the person who gets a sweet deal on the house next to the airport and then complains about the noise.

I'm not a native American. German and Norweigon. My father was in Government and we wound up here. We haven't weather, we watch it on tv. But yes its boring and 3/4 mexican. Right now I'd rather be here than in your state. Have they found out if the guy has Ebola or not.

Really??? How silly of you to assume that all who post who didn't have generations of family members who were born HERE, in the USA. I did a family tree, and found that one branch of my family lived about 100 miles from where I live today. They are DAR and predate the Civil War. It really doesn't matter where our people came from, what matters is we ARE legal citizens who pay taxes and demand that people like you leave. If you want to be here so badly, go through the process and show us and our laws respect.
