"His battered 20-year-old truck needs to be coaxed to life from frequent stalls. On a regular route, he pulls boxes from dumpsters using a tool made from a broom handle and a nail."

Didn't make a go of it where you came from...doubtful you can make it here!

These people knew full well the consequences awaited them for what they did. When we get ready to weld the hammer, it, oh how could you?! This will go on forever until we put out foot down. Yes, there will be some snot nosing, but it will only be temporary if we act as if we mean it!!!

"Should a comprehensive overhaul clear Congress and be signed into law by Obama later this year, coming out of the shadows would mean different things to each of them."

Illegal aliens are really that stupid? No amnesty fixes the problem of illegal aliens coming here. No amnesty bill will ever pass the House.

"According to Ronald Reagan himself, as told to his trusted long-time friend and U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, the biggest mistake of his presidency was signing the l986 amnesty for what turned out to be more than half the five million illegal immigrants in the country."

"For the first six months after the amnesty there was a modest fall in illegal immigration, but within 12 months illegal immigration was breaking all previous records, rising to 800,000 per year. Friends and relatives of the newly legalized immigrants began to pour into the United States. They were followed by more illegal job seekers who saw continued opportunities for more amnesties. In fact, the 1986 amnesty resulted in six more amnesties from 1994 to 2000, awarding legal status to another 3.0 million illegal immigrants. By 1997, the number of illegal immigrants in the country was already back up to the 5.0 million in the U.S. before the 1986 amnesty. Amnesty has proved to be a slippery slope. Amnesties beget more amnesties and more illegal immigrants. Can you imagine the consequences of amnesty for the 11 million or more illegals now in the United States?

There were 5.0 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. in 1986 because we had allowed cheap-labor special interests to dominate immigration policy to the point of non-enforcement. We had become lax on border security and had ceased to enforce immigration laws at the workplace. Lack of enforcement at the workplace was by far the more important of the two chief causes of illegal immigration, as it is today."

"Didn't Mexicans take over in Mexico"

Obviously. That's what's wrong with the country. Hell, it was better off when the French were running it and we all know how they suck at anything other than making bread and wine.

another way of attacking the retired citizens who used to collect and recycle for extra cash.

also shows that illegal aliens are of no help to the country.
