Why do celebraties think their opinion matters to people? As if they live in the real world.

Are their children forced to attend public schools in piss poor schools where all the funding is spent on providing interpreters and teaching children of illegals english? Do they realize there are no music, art or band classes left due to no funding?

Do they have to search for a open emergency room due to closures of their local E.R.'s.

Do they live in neighborhoods ruined by illegals? Graffiti, crime and litter in our streets?

Do they have to dodge unlicensed illegal immigrant drivers just to travel in their own community?

No, they live above the people like us, the U.S. Citizens that are forced to live with this problem. It's easy for them to impose their belief on us. It will never affect their lives. Must be nice.

I have read your posts before and it looks like you have issues with Mexicans regardless of their legal status. Get it through your small brain they will continue to come regardless of how hard you work at trying to make them look bad and how much society hates them. They are here to stay so get over it wannabe.

No where in my post do I even mention Mexicans, you made that statement not I.

Also how am I a wannabe? I don't run from and abandon my homeland,. I don't demand rights I am not entitled to from a country I reside in illegally. That's a wannabe. They wannabe treated as though they are here legally, yet they are illegal. That's a wannabe. Hahahaha!

The only political opinion from any celebrity I follow is from Alice Cooper.

"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."

And this quote can be paraphrased for ANY political agenda.

But we can also let our wallets do the talking. If not for us paying to see concerts and but their products, would they be stars?

Excuse me to jump in but it is a known fact that most illegals are from Mexico. It is on the news whenever a group of illegals are caught or whenever there is major news about an illegal getting shot it is always a Mexican. They are mentioned everywhere on this thread But the bigots dont refer to them as Mexicans they always hide their racism by calling them illegals so that they can hide their bigotry. Nice try at trying to fool others, you cant fool me. I would run from my country too if my family was at risk of getting killed or if someone threatened to cut off my head because I ratted someone out to the Federales. You know nothing about Mexicos problems and why they run. Mexicans/illegals same think okay?

All illegals do not come from Mexico. The majority of illegals do.

That must mean Mexico has issues that need to be resolved. Therefore if you know so much about the reasons why Mexicans choose to abandon their people, their homeland and come here illegally, then maybe you should go to Mexico and help their people overcome the problems in Mexico.

However, I will continue to fight illegal immigration as it is destroying my country.

That's what people who love their country do, they fight to save their country. They do not abandon their homeland running illegally to a foreign country and demand rights they are not entitled to.

I am going to jump in for a sec too...

Yes, for many of us the frustration is the sheer numbers of illegals coming across the southern border. And the number are large and why are they not working to fix their countries like other people who cannot get here illegally as easily are trying to do?

Now, this aside... Illegal immigration or staying here illegally after a visa expires is also a security issue. Check 9-11 and see how many were here illegally (visas overstayed). My husband passes the Pentagon every day. He lost clients of the medical facility he works in and had the FBI contact him to see if they had any tissue samples left so they could have DNA to help ID remains. I have friends who work at the Pentagon as well as clients. Luckily none of my friends or clients were killed or hurt, but people some of them knew were.

For me the frustration with the illegals from south of the border is the sheer numbers and the demands being made - demands they have no right to make because they are not legal citizens. Demands that if other groups wanted to make, they could really make things tough and they would have a precedence for it because we are catering to illegals from South of the border. We have a HUGE population of Korean immigrants where I live and not one of them have demanded everything be biligual. Their businesses are but they do business in English and Korean. I have gone into Latino managed businesses and had one McD's server mumble that maybe we should learn Spanish. I was P*SSED - she came to the US, not the other way around. If I went to Mexico, I would make an attempt to use the Spanish I learned - not to would be an insult.

But in reality, I have had it with all illegal immigration from any country and for any reason! Border hopping or visas. We have policies for people who seek asylum. Apply for it.

If legal immigration had to be good enough for my grandmother WHO DID NOT SPEAK ENGLISH as a first language but learned it before immigrating here as WWII was ramping up, then it should be good enough for others. Had she and her husband (who died before I was born) stayed, chances are she would have been killed. She married a Brit and England was bombed pretty hard...

I know legal immigrants from South of the border who lived in abject poverty - but they had enough respect to come here legally and learn English. And many are outraged at those coming here illegally. One woman who used to teach where I sub sometimes has relatives she will not speak to because they border hopped. She has no idea where they are living and wishes to keep it that way.

You think people are bigots for wanting immigration laws enforced due to the fact the majority of illegals are Mexican Citizens?

The majority of white collar crime is committed by white people. Am I racist for wanting the white people who commit these crimes arrested?

Enforce the laws the race, country of origin, skin color of the alleged criminals is irrelevant.

Get over you fake racist allegations, people don't fall for it anymore that's why the majority of citizens want our immigration laws enforced.
