It's got to be difficult for those who respected the laws and came the right way, especially those who had to have employer sponsors, see how the lawbreakers are greatly rewarded just for breaking the laws.

More legal immigrants need to speak out. If they did it, you could. No excuses!

Good for them! They need to know their honesty has paid off. They didn't get a free ride so why should anyone else.

I think MOST legal immigrants are royally pi%%ed off at the pro illegals stance. I know I am.

Especially the disingenous prattle re giving them a "free ride" to citizenship - I'm still waiting to save the $$ required to file for mine, why should they have it given to them gratis by virtue of the fact they came in ILLEGALLY?

If we granted free Citizenship here based on "want" we wouldn't have any place left to stand much the less grow food.

Nobody seems to want to acknowledge that fact.
