I like football because it incorporates everything. You can run, pass a ball, catch a ball, kick a ball, run with a ball, run after who has the ball, throw the ball.
Soccer is just too slow and boring. Hispanics are too slow, weak and not smart enough to play football.
Soccer is a nice game, and you have to run by 45 minutes in the first half and another 45 minutes.

Soccer is not easy game.

Mr. Spytheweb never say it again because it is sport not war.

There are millions of immigrants living under the same conditions in other countries so what's so special about someone that can wade or walk across our borders?
It's true there are millions if not over a billion people living in extremely poor conditions but most of them do not have a developed country near them.

How many plans do you want to give them?
"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."
-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986
That was then and this is now. Since 1986 there has been an exponential growth in technology so there's easier and more efficient ways to enforce the laws, to keep track of all visas, to improve the border security etc.

These people live here already and they are so deeply integrated in our economy ( not so much in the society ) that it would really hurt USA if they don't get their documents.

My kids played soccer and enjoyed it. It's a simple game that requires great skill. Young children enjoy playing it among the other sports in their repertoire. Women also play basketball, and what does that indicate??? It indicates that they enjoy the sport. People like soccer.

So if it's being taken out of payroll and they don't have fake ids but are ILLEGAL immigrants they are using a federal tax id number? Other sales/use taxes what other taxes do ILLEGAL immigrants pay if they are not committing fraud or lying.
See Post #40.
It's called an ITIN number... And it's issued by the government to undocumented people to pay taxes.

The little tax they do pay is nothing compared to the Fraudulent Child tax Credit they receive.
There is a man here whose wife receives welfare for her two American born anchors while he works landscaping and fraudulently files for Child Tax Credit for three children he claims he left behind in Mexico with his sister/relatives.

Sad but true.

"I'd say realistically 70 to 80 percent of what we were seeing was fraud. And blatant fraud," said Antelis.

Antelis was not the only one who saw a problem. The inspector general found the IRS refunded illegal immigrants $4.2 billion in child tax credits in 2010 alone. They suspected fraud." Since they suspected fraud, what did they do to curtail further fraud???

For many years I was here " TOPIX IMMIGRATION FORUM " and many of you said " deport, deport , deport..." And now what we see:
Republicans do not have received enough credibility in their legislative body by the American voters, and democrats are more volatile to deal with this matter.
Republican can not offer human solutions for this domestic issue (11 million undocumented people ).
now Republicans need reorganize their base after Amnesty bill be sign, and open opportunity for young republicans and their vision about NEW AMERICA.

You still haven't said what you base your support for giving Citizenship to 11 Million illegal aliens?

That's why we have immigrations laws so people that live near developed countries can't cheat to go to the head of the line!

Then 20 years later demand American Citizenship.

Well its Saturday Feb 9th 2013 and my question is if its available why isn't it being used?

They're fighting in Washington right now over Border Security first before amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens!

Why is that, if your comment is true?

So if you can come here illegally and hide out for 20 years without getting caught while sucking our welfare system dry, then the United States will make you an American Citizen?

That sound about right?

I've read our immigration laws three times and can't find anything about what you recommend!

How can they be "undocumented" when they have stolen or false Social Security cards?

If those laws had been enforced we wouldn't have had 11+ illegal alians living and working here. So you can basically say that USA has allowed them to come here since it's in human nature to try to live better even though you have to take some risks. Anyways you can't turn back them time so a solution is needed now.

For the same reasons the existing laws are not enforced. Now they realized there's already 11+ million illegals so that's why they are discussing about actually using them.

No, that should not sound right but, the thing is that the government allowed them to come here illegally. What do you do now with so many people ?
