You see, America wanted workers. What we got were people. How sad we cannot tell the difference.
I don't know one single person that has hired an Illegal, you?

Of course she still likes the USA, the land of easy welfare handouts. She's not supposed to like Arizona, that's the whole point of Arizona enforcing the laws.

Then, when every other State adopts the same law they won't "like" the US! Change your own Country, not ours!

Please allow me to correct a few points in your post.
1. Some Businesses have hired illegals. Not all and not even most.
2. Some Americans employed illegals as nannies or yard workers. Not all and not even most.
Illegals believe we were ok with them? Then why the ID theft? Why the skulking in the shadows? Why the need to use false names, false addresses?
No they knew perfectly well that they were living a criminal life.

You see, we wanted legal assimilated citizens that can contribute to our society not wreck havoc.See that's how we had done it before the laws were held in disregard, thus displacing millions of Americans.WE CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE!

Why do Americans need to look in the mirror about this? When did I employ an illegal immigrant? When did I have confirmation that an undocumented worker produced a product I am using? So, please, again, why do "Americans" need to look in the mirror?

Yup. That's the start of the changes happening: people not being politically correct anymore or polite and letting undocumented people know that we aren't OK with them coming here having children that will attend our public schools, receive free and reduced lunch, or working the jobs that legal residents could work. I believe that the illegal immigrant community is starting to feel that we really don't want them here causing the effects that they cause. The jobs-that-Americans-won't-do were filled up by undocumented workers a long time ago.

Oh yea, I do believe that we don't have to verbally assault people because they are undocumeted. I don't like to see people ridiculing someone when the conversation can be done in a peaceful manner and opinions can be exchanged peacefully. Am I pissed when I read accounts of illegal immigration or know of it in my community, yes. I do believe in telling them how I feel when I find out that they are here illegally, have three kids all under 5 and they are in the Wal-Mart line paying for their groceries with a WIC check or EBT card (food stamps). I will tell them how I feel as a US citizen that was born and raised here. I will be bluntly honest and let them know what they and the millions other like them are doing to our state and federal budgets.

Our silence and lack of action is their go-ahead nod that we are OK with them being here illegally and using our resources. I've spoken to some women who are under the impression that the assistance that they are receiving for their 5 children is meant for them. I will talk to them, ask them if this is available in Mexico (they tell me no) and they smile as they realize that they are getting a good deal here. Some of them have been here 10 years. Ten years and they are receiving government assistance and in the mean time had 5 or 3 children. Does it look like they get the picture? Nope. They think it is OK, acceptable. Once the American people who are bothered by this speak up and express their problems with this, illegal immigrants will get the picture.
