May 6, 2013 Read more: WAFF-TV Huntsville 20

Jam the phone-lines. Call your Congressmen,demand that they listen to "We the Citizens",those who are negatively affected by this massive numbers of Illegals in our States/Cities and the cost they incur. We can not continue to ignore the facts. People are being taxed to no end to support these people who should not be getting preferential treatment. They need to go home and start the process/path to citizenship like everyone else did and continue to do.

Obama wishes to dilute America in every way. New findings on Benghazi may prevent him from doing anything at all.

and yet,the bigots continue with their BS barking.But in both sides of this battle for reform,even the opponents should hope it to pass,or having 40 million of people living and here,but still with no papers or being accountable to contribute more to the country,paying taxes,etc.Keep ignoring the elephant in the room until they will ignore you when their kids(U.S Citizens,sons and daughters of Hispanics,Asians and other ethnic immigrant groups,not given "authorization" to be here)outnumber the population of angry conservatives,mostly elder whites.And then comes extinction of the GOP bigots..

I called my elected officials and told all the illegals to vote for amnesty and paths to citizenship. Viva Mexico.... go back to Europe white racist.

The southwest will once again belong to Mexico.

My head is about to explode(migraine),but I will answer ur comment.
Listen it's better to plan and be able to support a child,then to have all these children as Illegals do,unable to feed them,depend on other(taxpayers) support them from birth thru their eighteenth BD. Need I remind you even tho these women breeder may have it made now,the money is soon to run out.
Taxpayers are tired of supporting Mexico's responsibilities,so this massive cost will eventually will be realized as that..... expensive and unsustainable.

Legal immigrants are welcome and all of those qualified potential immigrants who wish to apply legally are encouraged to do so.
We will not let illegals cut in line, take their place or otherwise spoil their opportunities.
your anger towards other people it's coming from the fact that your wife left you for a hotblooded Latino ... Size does matter bubba ;)
