Stupid beaner, no amnesty for you. It's time to go Viva Mexico IN Mexico. Not here. This is America, we don't Viva Mexico here.

But you are right, we aren't treating you right. In most nations, Illegal Invaders are shot on sight. Injustice is paying for Illegal Aliens on the American taxpayers dime. And guess what, we are sick of it, standing up and saying No More!!!!

Or...No mas!!! Comprende!
Illegal Aliens are NOT welcome here....time to go.

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Arizona welcomes immigrants, legal immigrants. Do it the right way thru the front door.

10% unemployment and the sec. of labor just put out an add inviting illegals to call and complain about low paying jobs? How about throwing the lawbreakers out of the country and letting citizens take the jobs?

The only question that really needs to be answered is -why are the illegals children, not also illegals ????The question as to the interpretation of this law being a question as to if the illegals are under the jurisdiction of the laws of the U.S. at the time they are here. It seems to me none of the illegals could be considered as under the laws when they are breaking the law by entering!!! So---have to agree with the Az.Gov .on this!!!!
You young persons and the ones looking at retirement in a short time====Think you will have any SS#???If 20-30-50-million illegals are granted amnesty, they will be collecting the SS# you have paid into all your working days, and they may have only several years. You know SS# is broke now, what do you think it will be then???

heres also some food for thought!

Taxes
The Social Security Administration believes that about half of unauthorized immigrants pay Social Security Taxes. A 2005 New York Times piece reported that over 9 million W-2 wage forms with incorrect or false Social Security Numbers were turned into the government in 2002, a reasonable benchmark for the number of undocumented workers. These represented some $56 billion dollars in earnings,$6 billion in Social Security taxes and $1.5 billion for Medicare.

Naturally, the exact tax numbers for illegal immigrants are hard to establish, but at least it is clear they are paying into the system.

Consumption
Something else that many opponents of illegal immigration forget or choose to ignore is the consumer power of this group. UCLA's Raul Hinojosa is quoted in BusinessWeek estimating that "the total goods and services they consume ... plus all they produce for their employers, is close to about $800 billion."

Some argue that much of what illegal immigrants make doesn't benefit the U.S. economy because it is sent back to their families in Mexico and other countries in the form of remittances. Even considering the $42 billion that the World Bank says left the United States (in 2006) as remittances, that is only about 10% of illegal immigrants' wages, says Hinojosa. That leaves about $400-450 billion of that is consumptive capacity staying in the U.S.

"I'm not an oscar wilde follower but his quote is pretty true when it comes to people like you.
and if someone legal does get pulled over and asked, they wil probably only have a drivers license. and that isnt enough proof so they will be detained probably a couple of hours until they can prove it.
and who do you think would be "detained" ...**not whites***."

you sais it.you Prove it. Or shut up on thing you know nothing about. PROVE IT!!!!
