^The last time I checked, illegal immigrants were not the only ones "lying, cheating and stealing." So instead of you clearly just blaming it on illegal immigrants, you should do some research so that you do not make yourself look like a fool.

The difference is that we can't remove American liars, cheaters and thieves from our country. All we can hope for is that they are caught and incarcerated for their crimes. They still have a right to be in this country. Illegal immigrants have no right to be in this country nor to be working here and our immigration laws dictate that they be deported. Therefore they can't lie, steal and cheat in this country anymore and we will only have our own home grown criminals to deal with.

Talking Perfectly stated

Your response was just perfectly stated Old Glory! I feel exactly the same way, I detest our own home grown criminal element but they are citizens and we have to deal with them. I don't think we should ever have to support or deal with another countrys criminal element or give them any social services that should only be afforded to the citizens of this country who have worked for them and gone to war often to defend this country and keep us free.

One of the first U.S. Marines to die in combat going into Iraq was an illegal alien at one point...

EDIT: Correction, I remembered his parents wrong, they had died in Guatemala before he came to the United States, more of the story in my next post...

So does this justify his and his parent's illegal presence in our country at one point? I don't think so. Hopefully he wasn't here illegally when he joined the military as that is not allowed.

Oldglory, the legality of his joining any branch of the armed forces wouldn't matter one bit to such a person, they have already demonstrated that by the fact that they invaded our borders without proper documentation. They try to justify that action by any means they can and use any excuse they can dream up. But the facts are still the facts and they can't escape them, they have absolutely no respect for us or our laws and they demonstate that each time they advance over another countries borders without following that countrys rules and procedures for entrance, they are strictly out for themselves and no one else!

I think all of our fallen heroes deserve to be honored equally. IMO, this soldier doesn't deserve special recognition just because he came here illegally and joined our military after becoming legalized.

Does make you wonder, huh ???? Today our glassy eyed leader (Obozo) said, and i quote "I don't pay any attention to our debt, it's OK for the short term" . With leaders like this, how can it ever get any better ?

Of course they aren't. However, with the exception of small children, ALL illegal aliens lie, cheat, and steal to live in this country. That is certainly not true for most citizens and legal immigrants. In other words, no adult illegal alien is law-abiding, and none should be here.
