Instead of asking "when", you should ask "why".
The answer would be, for the same reasons the British ancestors of today's Americans did not stay in the UK and protest religious and taxation persecution, instead of fleeing cowardly to the New World. Or, why the Irish ancestors did not stay and demand their government to solve the potato famine, instead of cowardly fleeing to the NW. Or, why not the Jews stay and fight the Nazi Germans, or the Italians fleeing Mussolini, and I could go on and on. The only peoples that can rightly say they aren't here for cowardly reasons are the Native Americans.
I've telling them this forever but they're in denial.

Really, and why did the ancestors of the so-called Native Americans come here? They migrated her just like everyone else did. What makes them so special?

The early Europeans did not come here illegally. Learn to know the difference between legal and illegal. This forum is about those who are here today in violation of our immigration laws not some past history. Those people are all dead now.

OldCoward, natives were here long before YOU came here. As far back as history goes, the native American have been the earliest inhabitants of this land. It's YOU who came here thousands of years later.

I've also said this many times before, I'll repeat it here again.

When YOUR ancestors didn't like conditions in their native land, they packed up their bags, secured their one way ticket, and got the hell out of there.

Now, if you don't like conditions here, you should do the same. Pack your bags, secure your one way ticket, and gitty up outta here! Pronto!

You don't have to be here. You know that, right?

-
What make you say that the early Europeans came legal into the Americas.
-
Do you think they asked the native Americans if they could enter?
-
Do you think they had passports to be able to pass through customs?

-
You not only violated the laws of the native Americans who lived there before the early European (British convicts, indentured labourers )( white slaves) decided to come and live there, the Native Americans invited you into their homes, what did your ancestors do?
-
You started to rape their women, kill their men and steal their land.

When the USA needed the Mexicans to do the work for the Americans.
-
You could not get sufficient Mexicans, to do your work for you.
-
Some 300,000 Mexican citizens went to the United States to work in factories that produced war supplies and to help in any way that would benefit the Allies. Around 15,000 US nationals of Mexican origin and Mexican residents in the US enrolled in the US Armed Forces and fought in various fronts around the world side by side with the Americans

Thousands of year? LOL! No one was native to this continent. All of our ancestors migrated here from somewhere else including the ancestors of the so-called Native Americans. They didn't just sprout up out of the ground like corn.

There were no immigration laws back then. There are today. Learn to know the difference! Yes, I am allowed to be here because I am a citizen. Illegal aliens have no right to be here and I join the fight to get them out of here. I am not leaving my own country over some illegal invaders that are going home sooner or later.

You gitty out of here if your a citizen because you're a traitor to this country. If you're here illegally then should also gitty out of here as you have to right to be here.

The early Europeans migrated here just like the so-called natives that came here over the Bering Strait. Again, there were no immigration laws back then.

"You" aka "me"? I wasn't even born back then so WTH are you talking about? As for my ancestors they didn't even come here till the early 1900's well after any conflicts with the indios so you were sayin? The U.S. had already been established as a country in 1776!

"I" raped women and killed their men and stole their land? My, my that would make me hundreds of years old, wouldn't it? Or am I just guilty by skin color? You're an idiot using the past as justification for ignoring our immigration laws today and making stupid statements about those of us alive today when those involved in the past have been dead for hundreds of years. Grow up! It's 2014 now!

Whenever I see on TV an American show called border patrol and you have these cowboys hunting Mexicans, when you see their last names on badges more often than not these Americans have Spanish sounding names as in Gonzales or Enrique.

It just makes me laugh.

How the fck does this border patrol guy thinks he got his last name.
Maybe the father of the border patrol police officer was an Irish man with a sense of humour.

Only 3% of illegal aliens are picking crops. The growers who hire them just pocket the profits while passing their social costs on to us. So what was that about our food being more economical? LOL!

Some american citizens prefer to have their work done by mexicans bc they are hard workers and bc most of people who could do it legally prefer to live of welfare..

Given the current unemployment rate, isn't it funny how some politicians and special interest advocates talk about the "labor shortage" in the United States?

When is the Millennial Generation going to step up?

Why should the American public continue to subsidize your university education only to subsidize your unemployment when you graduate?

You guys suck. You're the lost generation.

FICTION >>
11. Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare- <<<<< that is Fiction!
-
The U.S. department of Labor said that the number of farm workers who were undocumented in 2013 was 52%. <<<, this is more like the real percentage
-
Regarding welfare, most illegal immigrants are not eligible for welfare except for elementary and high school education and emergency medical care. Children born in the U.S. are citizens and qualify for certain public assistance. But what is generally thought of as welfare is available only to citizens or legal immigrants..
-
Americans are under the impression that Illegal Aliens suck more money out of the social security system than put back in.
-
Think about such an idiotic believe you Americans have, you are living in a country illegally, you are earning money, you are sending money back home to your family, every one is happy the man who is earning a small income, his family back home and his employer is happy.
-
Do you really believe this man will ever go to social security and say to them guess what I am an illegal migrant in your country, please help me!
-
He will not even go to a medical center he be to scared someone will report him.
_
And guess what he pays taxes, may not be in the form of an income tax, but he is paying a consumption Tax, whenever I visit the USA every retail shop I paid a visit to has a price plus sales tax.
If he is driving a car he is paying road taxes.
-
The illegal Aliens are
Taxes contributed
Most arguments against illegal immigration begin with the premise that the illegal don't pay income taxes, and that they therefore take more in services than they contribute. However, IRS estimates that about 6 million unauthorized immigrants file individual income tax returns each year. Research reviewed by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office indicates that between 30 percent and 50 percent of unauthorized immigrants pay federal, state, and local taxes. Illegal immigrants are estimated to pay in about $7 billion per year into Social Security. In addition, they spend millions of dollars per year, which supports the US economy and helps to create new jobs. The Texas State Comptroller reported in 2006 that the 1.4 million illegal immigrants in Texas alone added almost $18 billion to the state's budget, and paid $1.2 billion in state services they used.
The Social Security and Medicare contributions of illegal immigrants directly support older Americans, as illegal immigrants are not eligible to receive these services. The Internal Revenue Service issues an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) regardless of immigration status because both resident and nonresident aliens may have Federal tax return and payment responsibilities under the Internal Revenue Code. Federal tax law prohibits the IRS from sharing data with other government agencies including the INS. In 2006 1.4 million people used ITIN when filing taxes, of which more than half were illegal immigrants.[29]

The two things you should be doing is stop sending your hard earned money to China <<think about what I said.
-
(1st) Stop buying Chinese made products, with every Chinese made product you buy, you are making China rich and the USA poorer.
-
Stop bringing into the US those that do not have the same ideology as you, they are the one who are sucking your social security dry, they avoid working, they tend to tell social security they have 4 wives and need financial assistance.
-
The commit more sexual crimes than any other ideology
They are breeding faster than you are in less than 100 year the chances are that the USA flag will look like this >> http://arabsinamerica.unc.edu/files/2012/05/M...

Oldglory last but not least.
The day China thinks it is a superpower and take on the USA, you are going to need an Ally like Mexico with a 120 million people and it ores in the ground (Oil)
-
Oldglory and that is going to happen one day, not in my and or your life time.
-
China already has either the second or the third most powerful armed forces after the USA.
How long are you going to be able to say you are number 1
-
Remember this as a trivial knowledge, of all nations and races in the world the Jews have the highest IQ and the Asians have the second highest IQ, White people run 3rd and to be able to win a war when you have all the best weapons you need brains.
-
Without the Jews and the Asian, you be still shooting native Indians and playing Billy the Kid cowboy games. that is how backwards of a nation you are.
=
Asians overtake Hispanics as largest US immigration group
Asians recently passed Hispanics as the largest group of new immigrants to the United States, according to a survey on Tuesday predicting a demographic trend bringing powerful economic, social and political changes.
-
Asians More than 4 million of the American are 100% Chinese.
Japanese nearly 1 million
Korean nearly 2 million
Vietnam nearly 2 million
Total Asian population in the USA is nearly 20 million.

More than 50 Million American have Asian genes.
-
Those few Mexican are not going to do you any harm, it is those that believe in a different God than you do are going to fck your country up
-
I am one of the lucky ones I am convinced that each one of us are a God.
-
Remember that Asian is not only those that come from mainland China

You have Vietnam, Korea, Japan
-
Do not feel hurt for the same applies to the country I live in, if it was not for the Jews and the heavy Asian migration, we would be still shooting black fellows and eating kangaroos

Oldglory just read the article and make your self wiser.

The only thing the Church cares about is finding little boys to feed to their priests.
