You're only half right.

No, they don't keep the "American dream" alive. AMERICANS do that!!!

There are LEGAL immigrants in this country. Yes, they have brought a good deal to this country that is positive.

There are ILLEGAL immigrants in this country. No, they have not brought anything positive to this country.

Can you be more specific? How have they kept the American Dream alive; and how have their cultures enhanced our country? Immigrants generally do benefit this country, but we arenít discussing immigrants. Weíre discussing illegal aliens.

I get tired of hearing people say things like "I know it's against the law for anyone to enter the US illegally. I'm all for securing our borders to prevent further illegal entry, but what should we do with the illegal aliens that are already here?"

I have a solution. REPATRIATE THEM WITH THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN!

That's like saying: "I know home invasion is against the law. I'm all for putting better locks on my doors but what do I do with the home invaders that are already in my house?"
You reward them by giving them a set of keys to the house, along with free room and board. Of course, you will also be obligated to pay for any children they may have, and their K-12 education. Anything less would be mean-spirited and racist.

I agree with you 100%!

That's why more people need to do the research as to whether or not their candidates have voted for or against bills that benefit illegals. Folks need to make their votes count and get rid of any politician that supports illegal immigration or bills that benefit illegals and/or anchor babies.

In your opinion. You asked a question, I gave you an answer. What's the point of this thread?

They are immigrants regardless. You can separate them from a legal standpoint, but this does not take away from the fact that legal or not, they bring the positive attributes of their culture with them.

In other words, a shoplifter is the same as a shopper. I donít think so. In any case, you still havenít listed anything specific. Exactly how do they benefit us?

They bring their cultures and tradition to our country. They increase church attendance. This helps many denominations. They contribute to these churches through tithing.

When they mix into the greater community, people experience different cultures. Their children are more tolerant than their parents/grandparents of previous generations as a result.

They do almost all the farm work. Americans don't like to pick the fields. This has been proven for generations.

They have children. Many of these children join in the military and help fight our wars.

The catholic church is running bankrupt now for two reasons,dirty priests and catering to illegals who put in less into the collections.

legal immigrants contribute to the american dream. illegals take away from it.

They send most of their money back home anyway
