    Don't you just love how our country is getting exploited by the illegals??? (Total sarcasm if you didn't get it) We really need to change some stuff so that way the honest hard working citizens of this country aren't footing the bill. I am tired of having to pay for all these people just cause they see that their country sucks.

    Along side them coming across to have their children just so that they are allowed to get benifits from the government and the current jail and prison situation, the educational aspect is getting under my skin.

    I am all for having my daughter learn as many languages as she can. If she wants to that is. I do see it as being a good thing to know, but don't go forcing it on people. We now have to pay for teachers to teach ESL (English as a Second Language). I thought that it was a requirement to have an understanding of the English language just to be a citizen of this fine country. When did we start handing out waivers??? I also love when I go to Jack in the Box in Austin and order my food, and the woman taking my order doesn't know what I am saying. I had to tell her over three times, and still had to have the manager translate it for hher.

    It is everywhere you go now. Look at the labels on the gallon of milk. I remember a day when it just said all the information on it in English. Now it tells you in English and Spanish that it is "whole milk". It is like a reminder to me that we are slowly being overrun by people that come to this country to better themselves, but yet don't want to take the full step into becoming a real American citizen.

    By no means am I racist towards any human nor do I disagree with immigration. I just want it done legally.

    "They do the jobs Americans won't do" is another lie. Do you really think there are 20,000,000 jobs that Americans won't do? DO NOT confuse the difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien. Yes immigrants ARE the backbone of this country. They came in here legally. They did not sneak in here and steal taxpayers money and jobs. That is the lie that illegals use to confuse the two. They do not belong here, and should come to this country like everyone else did. They should also learn English like everyone else. Illegals are not special or better than you. They are backed by the corrupt government they bring with them to steal your land, jobs and money. It's all about money. They work for less than you can afford to. The companies that hire them benefit from the cheap labor, and they force you to pay for their services with your tax money. The companies "donate" to corrupt politicians who encourage lax enforcement of the very laws we pay taxes to enforce. Simple words: Greed and corruption. For example, it's what made Mexico the land of the very rich and the very poor. Mexico is NOT a poor country, the money is held by a few very rich families. Example: See who owns General Electric.

    My great-grandparents came here from Austria after WWI. They were terrified of the Nazis. They wanted a better life for themselves and their kids. I am sure they would be turning over in their graves over all the people here illegally & breaking the laws. They would be so upset that our government is allowing people to break the laws and brag about it on tv. I am so disgusted with the way our government is handling this problem I am actually thinking of moving to the UK. They have problems too but alteast their government controls its own boarders!

    Hmmmm I didn't have instant credit to buy land and property......what the banks are doing is they have tapped into a $3 BILLION dollar industry Hispanics are the Largest Minority in this country. SO hence you are sadly misinformed.......this in turn has helped the economy a great deal.

    Even thought the "illegals" don't have a SS# they do have a tax ID # which is similar, and can pay taxes, and "buy land" and have "instant credit" as you say.

    I came to this country with a dream.....had nothing, gained my citizenship, joined the U.S Army, have been deployed 3 times, and work as a public servant. OH and BTW I own two homes one of which I rent to snotty un educated people like yourself.

    Source(s): get the facts straight..........

    don't get me started ... I can go on and on and on for the next 5 years reguarding Illegals. I say any member of congress or senete or even any president that insist of giving Illegals amnesty Should be Impeached, tried and sentenced to a long prison term for treason against the country.

    confident and no. in assessment to international places with the two no/little or no government like somalia and afghanistan, it could seem as though the U. S. had much less freedom with the aid of fact we've greater regulations. yet out financial opportunities supply us freedom that maximum in those failed states have not got. whilst in comparison with totalitarian governments like North Korea, we've severely greater freedom in our on a regular basis lives, yet we are nonetheless chained to the social settlement that each and every democratic government has with it incredibly is human beings. ultimately, the question of regardless of if or no longer we are unfastened is in accordance with so lots greater complicated aspects than in simple terms how lots it expenditures to stay in the U.S.

    The fact that some people support illegals,shows they have no respect for the law . Their tired rhetoric in favor of illegals is just a smokescreen for their agenda (be it cheap labor or disdain for American citizens).

    no it's not. these boils on society get free medical, welfare etc. and working class citizens are being left out and can't get the help they need because these cowards who run here are using up the budgets.
