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.

Illegals were never brazen until the Government made them that way. Illegals were at one time extremely humble and a hell of alot more honest. I tell you they take their cues from Uncle Sam.
Most brought their corrupt nature from their countries of origin. They started their stay in our country on their first day by breaking our immigration laws. Yes .. such humble and honest people. HAHAAHAHA

Census of&#64257;cials raise the concern that Mexicans, and Hispanics more generally, choose racial responses that do not &#64257;t of&#64257;cials’ de&#64257;nitions of race. They &#64257;nd this so objectionable that they have sometimes argued that Latinos are ‘‘con-fused’’ or &#64257;nd it ‘‘dif&#64257;cult’’ to understand the race question on the census (Rodriguez2000).

When we consider how the Census Bureau has changed the racial classi&#64257;cation of Mexicans from none, to
Mexican, to white, to any race, it could be argued that government bureaucrats are confused.

And many do not, yet they are tapping into our free social services via their American-born. At least one parent should be a bonafide US citizen when applying for those freebies.

reform now its the only way the can tax them let them pay for school if they want to attend just like everyone else !! Lets get a new process that actually works and benefit everyone instead of us footing the tax bill !! Stop government spending when its for luxury . Give the immigrants a social tax them let them pay fines get health care coverage put the on some probation if they cant then they shouldnt be here to burden us !! All the fines that they do pay should go back to our schools and teachers !

Ever wonder what government does with all immigrants unclaim tax they take from them and get nothing back mmm it just might go to you when you start getting your social security checks because government decides to waste more and more on the border and they still get here !!! Easy to point and blame immigrants when all this has already been going on . How many americans want to work outside rain or cold very few if not any because they stay home and tax payers gives them foodstamps ,medicaid and everything else but easy to blame illegals . Let them work to contribute to the US .

My finger is directed straight at The Government of Mexico !!!

Until Americans realize that this is not our problem illegals will continue to expect from us.

These illegals are Mexico's problem!

I was reading the comments and felt frustrated how they humiliate person without documentations . The only difference between legal or illegal is only a small piece of paper or card. Very frustrating. These people are human being like us. They just want to make an honest living because they don't have that opportunity in their home countries.
