There has been a lot of talk lately about a 'path to citizenship' in the new immigration reform law, but a new study by the Pew Research Hispanic Center says most immigrants from Mexico, who make up the bulk of illegal immigrants, are not interested in becoming U.S. citizens.

"The number one reason cited is language barriers,” researcher Mark Lopez said.“Many of them are not English proficient.”

Just another excuse they use to not learn English,they are to damn lazy and they expect America/Americans to lern spanish and they get translations on every thing.

"Lopez says the nearly $680 cost of going thru the citizenship process is also a barrier to many immigrants from Mexico."

Yet they can pat thousands of dollors to some coyote to lead them over here!

Sign petitions to enforce immigration laws,impeach Obama and more!

I'm not buying your charade that every illegal pays thousands to a coyote either. You watch too much Nat Geo Border Wars.
Actually, I never watched that program. Come on, how many times have we read articles telling how at one time or another they got deported, and hired another smuggler to get back here? I don't have to make this stuff up. I stand firm, the money they spend on coyotes would be better served feeding their families, instead of leaving them with uncertainty and no other prospects.

I love to read all of this postings, It is interesting to know how much hate there is between different races. It only makes me want to comment and defend my own race (Mexicans) but in the other hand I don't want to lower my standards because neither the white race or the brown race are right.
Mexican is a nationality, not a race.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, On Friday announced plans to examine the refunds.

“The disconcerting findings in this report demand immediate attention and action from Congress and the Obama Administration,” Hatch said in a statement..“With our debt standing at over $14.5 trillion and counting, it’s outrageous that the IRS is handing out refundable tax credits...to those who aren’t even eligible to work in this country.”

"They can't even talk proper English !!!!"
I like that. You do not see enough irony in political discourse. I appreciate somebody who intentionally uses terrible English while commenting on other people's ability to speak the language. It is positively Dylanesque.
I am puzzled by your comments about "my tax dollars going to the illegals attending the University I decided to attend".
What does that mean? As you know unless they are living in a tent somewhere illegal immigrants are paying the same property and school taxes as everybody else. They either pay it directly or through their landlord. Do you really think they should be required to pay these taxes, but still be denied an education? If that is the case then all you are really doing is asking them to subsidize you.
Try working,taking care of an elderly father and juggling other things on an every day basis,,, you would be tired,half asleep too, instead of sitting on this forum for hours criticizing others.

Those were certainly some pointed questions you had for the poster. Inappropriate and based on your own prejudices, but pointed never the less.
Here is a question for you. What did you do to earn your US citizenship? Please describe your naturalization process in detail. We would all like to hear how you did it.
Simple, I was born here from parents who were American citizens, whose parents were American citizens, whose parents were American citizens...My lineage goes back seven generations in America! Answer you question?!!!

Yes, I am a proud American of Mexican descent that will never support the invasion of our country. I and millions more like me will never support the illegal invaders and their cause. My parents were from Mexico but I am in no way Mexican. You illegals think that American Latinos support you but you are mistaken. Typical, you don't even take the time to assimilate. Maybe if you learned how to speak and write in English things would be better for you. Americans are tired of your brazen attitude. You wave your Mexican flags everywhere and put our country down and at the same time you take as much as you can.

OK. So it is not like you crossed an ocean or a desert to come here or even passed a test. You were just fortunate enough to be able to draw your first breath here.

On one hand is is good to hear you are in favor or birthright citizenship, but on the other hand it is sad that you have to take credit for things your ancestors did.

I am not clear about what you mean when you say, "...it is sad that you have to take credit for things your ancestors did." Your response makes no sense!!! I was directly responding to someone who had "called me out" on how I got to America! What are you smokin'?

Oh, and as far as drawing the "first breath" crap, where you came from could be just as nice if you put your energies into making it so instead of living a criminal life in America?

P.S., Where did the birthright citizenship come from? I never said anything about it!
