True. Every slave that was brought here was forced to work. The majority of illegal aliens do not work and those that do are not forced. My point is that those who support illegal immigration do so for the same reasons that slave owners supported slavery. They make money and gain power from it. The Amazing part is that so called liberals and "Latino Rights" groups are actually backing those that are exploiting and profiting from illegal aliens and encouraging more to come here. Reminds me of a Judas goat.
The Mexican government is sending these criminal invaders north......When a prison starts getting full the buses start running north.....

Many never even end up in prison and are given the choice of prison or a bus ride north.....

American public assistance are for it's citizens if they are in need not for illegal aliens and their anchor brats.

Everybody's got an opinion on the issue. Arguing about it on a website is not going to change anything. Are u wimps going to do anything about it or keep complaining?? In the meantime there are millions of illegals going about their lives without hating on other people. Lol

Of course a study done by a pro-illegal group is going to declare how good it would be to give illegals amnesty!!

You can't really blame the illegal aliens for coming here and robbing what doesn't belong to them. The blame has to go to the Democrats and neocons that ignore our laws and do everything they can to encourage this lawlessness.The first thing we need to do is to get rid of Obama and his appointed renegades. After that we can work on the dumping neocons like McCain, Bush, Graham, Boehner etc. etc. Any politician that spins reasons why we can't do without illegal aliens or that Americans won't do this or that job, isn't qualified to represent this country.

U folks need to stop arguing already. Hating Americans just need to accept the fact that our government will never deport all illegals. It is not beneficial! Our gov and corporations know this!
Not all but most. It'll come to a head. How long do you think California can keep their heads above water before it collapses from illegal alien debt, welfare and freebies?

The Maryland dream/amnesty act is just another tax payer supported welfare program for illegal aliens that Americans don't want.

Which will be voted down next month.

If you are on US soil... you are fully subject to the jurisdiction of the USA.
The chances of carving an exception to the 14th Amendment to disenfranchise citizens born to illegal immigrants are zero. Any federal law setting forth such preposterous proposal will be immediate challenge in federal courts and based on prior United States Supreme Court precedents it will be ruled unconstitutional (see United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898); Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982); INS v. Rios-Pineda, 472 U.S. 444 (1985). In Rio-Pineda case the Justice White wrote his opinion with no dissent stated the following: "RESPONDENT WIFE HAD GIVEN BIRTH TO A CHILD, WHO, BORN IN THE UNITED STATES, WAS A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY. Granted that this statement is dicta and had no bearing on the holding of the case. What is more important is that this opinion was signed off by seven of the Justices (Justice Powell took no part in the consideration of the case) including Chief Justice Burger, Justice Rehnquist and Justice O'Connor, the court's most conservative members. If anyone of these Justices had problems with this language in the drafting of the opinion then the language would have been stricken from the opinion in its final version. What this means simply is that Supreme Court will not overturn prior case law on this matter.
As such, no matter how vocal or hateful the opposition is to these citizens who were born to illegal parents they are citizens of this country.
well if your talking about the kids born to mojados until this point then Yes they are u.s. citizens because they took advantage of a law that shouldn't apply to them and no one is going to make a change to the 14th amendment its just going to be made clear that it should only apply to only those here legally and I'm sure an amendment can be changed as long as it dosent affect any American and illegal aliens are not Americans. No dream act no amnesty and make the 14th amendment clear. Vote for romney.

And for the record, there are "Mexicans" in this country who are here legally. You obvioulsy resent Mexicans whether they are here legally or not, otherwise you would be using the term "illegal" instead of Mexicans. Some Canadians, Asians, and Africans are here illegaly, but I dont hear you complaining about them. Picking and choosing is not good.

that's because the Canadians,asians and Africans here illegally don't even make up 1% of the amount of illegal Mexicans in this country but don't worry they have to go too
