illegals should be sent back to where they came from. They come here with their hand out for money and health care and they don't pay taxes but we're supposed to give them benefits payed for by you and me. They're not welcome and not wanted. Anyone that thinks they should be allowed in our country should go take one home with you and take care of them your self. If they want to live here then go through the proper channels. Otherwise stay the hell out of my country.I fought in Viet Nam for this country and I'm not for freeloaders coming in like thieves for whatever they can get. The people of America need to stand up and the illegals need to step back.

not all illegals are taking any hand outs from the goverment or anyone else. a lot of illegals use fake ss numbers and they do pay taxes and can never claim taxes to get any of that money back. if they come here with a visa they dont pay taxes til they become citisen and most never do just for that reason i had a friend that worked with a legal immagrant and my friend made 2 dollars more an hour then the other guy but the other guys check was always much bigger for the same ammount of hours. alot of people come here just looking for a new life and fall in love and start families and with the way laws have changed it is very hard and expencive to become legal, even after you have been married to a citizen for several years and have a couple of kids that you support all on your own.my husband is not legal and we have been married for 7 years and have 2 kids and we do not take any hand outs at all we both work very hard for the very little that we have and we do it all alone. we have taken steps to get him legal just to be told that it is going to cost us thousands of dollars which we do not have. would you like it better if i sat at home a collected walfare and food stamps and medical covarage and section 8 then with us paying very little of our own way the we could afford to make him legal. we belive in doing it all on our own. i work 1 full time job and cut grass and clean house when i am not working my husband works 70 to 80 hours a week and only see his kids 1 day a week. we or should i say he is in no way a free loader. he is a very hard working man and takes care of his family.

Thats all well and good but it doesn`t change the fact that your hubby is breaking the law. And you are also by failing to report it to the authorities. As for what I would like? I would like the both of you to leave. Him for being an illegal and you for being a traitor to your country. You have put your needs, wants and desires ahead of your responsibilties as an american citizen.

But for us who are Christians, how do we live out a Christ-like response to illegal immigration? The Lord Jesus was an immigrant Himself in the land of Egypt. He was poor and an alien in that land, just like many of the illegal immigrants here in America. His family fled harsh conditions just as many immigrants here have. God raises up and takes down governments at His sovereign will, so who are we to say that our secure borders trump the compassion we should have for the immigrant family who is just trying to live life to its fullest here in America?

When we Christians move beyond numbers and start viewing each immigrant or immigrant family as people to whom we should be ministering the love of Christ in our own land, a love that transcends earthly laws and aspires to the greatest commandments Jesus cited (love God, love people), then the issue becomes less clear. Does not the love of God for these people render our desire for legal retribution against them null and void? When you actually talk to illegals here and listen to their plight, our commonality as men for whom Jesus died makes that phone call to INS impossible to make.

The U.S. should welcome all the little brown brothers from the south. Lets face it, they will do all the jobs that we don`t want to. We can give them major citys like Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Atlanta and Montgomery. They will displace the current residents who don`t work anyway. Then those displaced people can return to their homeland or Mexico, which ever one they prefer. Kinda like, Out with the bad, In with the good!

Not sure what you are getting at , amigo , but it sounds like you are a racist and a hater . My 3 children worked their way through college and have high paying jobs . Don't send those ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CRIMINALS to Atlanta . WE DON"T want to have to support these people who slithered across our border in the dead of night .

Ok, so we don`t give them Atlanta. Nobody in their right mind goes on the west side anyway. We give them LA instead, oh wait, thats already taken. I know we`ll send them to Omaha.

It's such a shame that this sort of racism still exists in this day and age. So you people think that anyone who is hispanic in the us is here illegaly? Wrong. And no, i'm not hispanic. I'm just someone who is tired of all this racism crap.
