<quoted text>Thanks! YOu keep reading, I'll keep writing! Y'know, I can't help but question if all members of Black Eyed Peas are legal citizens. Just imagine, people, they came here illegally. Paid for music lessons with our money and now after years of living off us, they're f**kin' fameous! God bless America! Black Eyed Peas- Good food, lousy band. You notice how Ozzy and Rob Zombie aren't stooping to that level? Perhaps because they don't need any help selling their music! "I GOT A FEELING, THAT TONIGHT IS GONNA SUCK ASS!" Especially, if yer illegal. Justice always prevails sooner or later.
Imagine how upset the Black Eyed Peas would be if instead of paying for their music people just copied it illegally. After all don’t all people have the “right” to listen to their music? Why should people have to pay to listen to their music? Especially poor people who just want to make a better life. Should they be denied the pleasure of music just because they cannot afford to buy it?

That is so true! Great point! Why should the taxpayers pay tax dollars for law enforcement to enforce the laws to stop illegal downloads of Black Eyed Peas music?

People are entitled to listen for free we just want to better our lives.

The same goes for Rage Against The Machine and Kanye West. Let them feel how Americans feel, screwed.

In my opinion, anyone wanting the illegals to be allowed to stay has an agenda. Or they are truely clueless to what is going on.

MOST DEMOCRATES.......votes and globalization
SOME REPUBLICANS..votes and globalization
CORPORATIONS....Cheap labor and globalization. Free movement of people.
MANY LATINOS........ INCREASE THE LATINO POPULATION = RACIST REASONS
CHURCHES....... Fill the pews = money. Some humanitarian reasons but mostly money.

BLACK EYED PEAS AND CELEBRITIES... Mostly clueless or to sell tickets.

Very good analogy.

It makes my head when illegals demand rights, and people for some reason think America belongs to the whole world. They think everyone that wants to live here has a right.

It is THE AMERICAN CITIZENS that decides who gets to stay IN OUR HOUSE. No one else.

What the hell? Why all the negativity? Blackeyedpeas are a cool band who cares if the oppose AZ laws? It doesnt make em less american or in any way ilegal it just means they are humane and compassionate. I dont agree with legalizing those who broke immigration laws but if the president legalizes them im cool with his decision and will respect it all the way. BLACKEYED PEAS yeahhhhhhhhhhh

That's your opinion and your welcome to it. You agree that famous people who are not affected by illegal immigration should give their opinion regarding it, even though it does not affect their lives one way or the other. Celebrities don't send their children to public schools and they don't live in neighborhoods invaded by illegals. This issue doesn't create hardships for the rich it does however create hardships for lower and middle income households.

We will not purchase music from them. I don't appreciate the fact they use their celebrity and this issue in an attempt to make themselves look compassionate to get fans. IMO well informed would be more attractive.

You respect the fact that they totally disrespected the immigration laws of the United States. We are not Mexihole, and never will be. Look up the work treason and it will apply to most of our politicians and so called American celebrities that yell the loudest.

Because they are gutless and take the easy route, they just want to look compassionate. But IMO it is fake or they would try to help those people.

Who cares if the Black Eyed Peas support criminals who attempt to gain through illegal actions, steal from homeless children when they fail to pay taxes, and aren't even intelligent enough on the whole to successfully adapt to a new environment or learn the native language? They can support them all they want, and sell them all the records they can sell to them IN MEXICO. If they don't like it, and they go through the proper channels, they can MOVE to Mexico. PROBLEM SOLVED. No AMNESTY...how about AMTrak? Trains move much faster than buses...

And you felt you needed to respond to the post, why? The poster made it quite evident what they were saying. If you don't agree with the post, then state why. But, in my opinion everyones opinion matters, even yours.

The opinion of the black eyed peas,lady gaga,shakira do deserve an opinion just as you and I do.However discussing it as though it is more important than you and I is ridiculous and a waste of time. You probably,like me "read the bill" and I doubt these people know as much about immigration as you an I do,so there for I don't think their opinion is worth any more discussion,merit or weight because they sing for a living.

Good! Maybe they will play some of their "music???"at the protest. It's enough to send even the illegals running for the border.
