Shame on us? Wrong. Shame on the ones that have no respect for our laws, our citizens, our way of life and shame on the ones that support such ignorant, selfish behavior.

Does anyone have any figures on how many illegal aliens participated in Reagan's amnesty?

I think if we could find figures, we'd be able to prove that they are illegal aliens and not Immigrants. I was in CA at the time and not many of the ones I knew wanted to get amnesty and a path to citizenship. They wanted to reap the benefits then return 'home'.

you are correct on 1 point ,not being born here doesnt make them monsters ,..coming here like a thief in the night,with no respct for americans rights or laws ,with the arrogance to think we owe them somthing,to steal rob rape murder does.maybe if you were to bring this point to your fellow illegal wetbacks and your pres.caldronee. maybe,they all would realize THIS IS NOT YOUR COUNTRY .YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS HERE.!SO GO HOME ,COME HERE LEGALLY OR DONT COME AT ALL.!!!
