To all illegal aliens: 2014 offers you a chance to start anew. Take a close look at yourself and the life you have chosen and answer the following questions. How could you have a any pride in yourself? You have abandoned your homeland rather than stay and try and make it better. That makes you a coward. What can you offer America? You have no real skills. You are uneducated and ignorant. What kind of respect do Americans owe people who defy their laws, steal welfare and other government benefits to which they are not entitled? When you were so desperate, you simply had to sneak into America to a survive, why didn't your own Mexican people help you? Could it be they despise you and your kind? Could this be because you are parasites not worth the time and money? Why can't or won't you learn to speak English? Every other ethnic group who immigrated to America did. Are you better than them, stupider than them, lazier than them, what is it? Why do you drive drunk, without licenses, cause accidents and then flee like sissy cowards? You have already shown you are spineless by leaving your homeland, why don't you wait for the police and face the consequences? How could you think for a minute you are a superior race to Americans as Juan, Rico as other wet back pieces of shit have posited on this forum? Wake up! It's 2014. Face facts, your unwashed asses are going to be deported soon. Save your cardboard boxes, you will need them.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"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.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in.
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and.
into the sunshine of America".

May 17, 2007.

Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts.

1965 - Ted Kennedy Lies

Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters,[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think."

Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

"The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)

Where is Cesar Juarez's efforts to put his country on the right track so his fellow citizens don't have to flee it?

These illegal aliens are fundamentally flawed that's why they flee their country but they can not flee themselves. No matter where they go, there they are with the same screwed up reasoning they left home with.

"I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators—they fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What's to be ashamed of?"

When are liberals going to fight for the rights of U.S. citizens in regards to illegal immigration? When are liberals going to honor our immigration laws?

correction Mayela......the republican party was formed to fight slavery under President Lincoln who was republican and who we should thank for having abolished slavery. He believed in all men having been created equal, blacks, jews, asians and whites. So you really should be thanking our forefathers who saved the black people, yes President Washington had his slaves but he was different in the way that he treated them with respect and when slavery was abolished he gave those slaves he owned pieces of land and some money so they could go about making their own living with their families. Don't get me wrong, but Lincoln has hardly ever been given the acknowledgement and credit he deserves for what he did, having established everyone EQUAL in our country. True there will always be those who will never abide by our laws, but if they continue with their stubbornness they will pay dearly as this Texas teen has learned. All LEGAL CITIZENS DESERVE EQUAL RESPECT. And we need to work together to keep it this way no matter if we're republicans or democrats WE ARE ALL CITIZENS of this great and beautiful nation. Happy new year to you and yours.
