But isn't that your problem?

You chose to have children with an ILLEGAL ALIEN.

How "messed up" is it that you expect us to pay for your choices

You broke the law by aiding and abetting an ILLEGAL ALIEN to come to or remain in this country.

The deal is that we who work for a living have been busy with our own lives and haven't been paying attention to the beggers and theives. We have guns and know how and when to use them so we dont get ripped off and the democrat beggers and theives are pissed. They got their pos in the Out House and they think that all is theirs. NOT. I hope they Fup and run up my driveway. I will call the sheriff and tell him to bring bags.

only Americans dont get deported for breaking laws in America. Doesn't Mexico have the same laws for its citizens? That's a pretty dumb point you were trying to make.

You are so right, so what is stoppig the family from leaving with the deported member? Could it be their dependency on our free social services? Greed is a terrible character destroyer.

illegal daddy is responsible for his nest, right? take YOUR FAMILY them where he is from and legally re-inter the country respecting that country's laws. You mom, are the illegal's wife follow him to his country and stop griping about our laws you should have been aware of, making sure BOTH YOU AND HE WERE LEGALLY HERE. You're only making things miserable for the whole family, you two did it ti yourselves and your family.

How do you think Mexico would react if they had the opportunity to get you and your family back? That's right, they don't want you. My question is, if your own country doesn't want you, why should my country want you especially when your presence in this country is hurting it?

Hey peeps no use in arguing, they will never understand the facts because they don't live it. Look don't stoop to their level with ridiculous comments we are better than that. You know they say that illegals are taking all the jobs.INDEED!!! Because no one wants to work for what they pay... Immigrants do not care so much about the pay, they care about supporting their family not wearing Abercrombie, Tommy Hilfiger, and driving BMW's... I agree it is the government that has caused all this... There is not a good system put in place. But it's not only Mexicans that are here. And for the 100th time illegals do pay taxes it's called an ITIN #- LOOK IT UP!!! There is not 1 100% pure American here.
Yes I have stated that again and again but they are so raciest they can't see past the color I have had people tell me your lucky your husband dosnt pay taxes really people if they have a check which most do they are paying taxes and just so people know you have to be citizen to get benefits people just don't like the facts they just talk without checking it out first

<quoted text>That is not entirely true, if the "renters" happen to be comprised of three or four families crammed into a single family abode, now is it? This is a common ploy of many illegals.
And why do some live like that oh my they don't get benefits like you can think about it or can you think
