What a load of crap. It was so one-sided. They had the lone anti-immigrant former INS agent and about a half dozen on the pro-immigrant side. The audience also appeared to be very pro-immigrant, not a minuteman, tom tancredo or sheriff joe in sight.

G-d msnbc.

It's very one sided. Everyone on the panel is Pro-illegal.

MSNBC has always been pro-illegal immigration. What is surprising about that?

I had hopes after Obama became president the war between Republicans and Democrats would at least partially simmer down, the situation got worse.

Now with the awesome victory and takeover of Congress by the Republicans I hoped MSNBC would tone it down some, but this show and Rachel Maddox tonight brings bitter disappointment and just more of the same. Don't know about CNN, whether they have toned it down a bit. Fox doesn't seem to be letting up either.

I know I'm stupid but I hope Congress can work together and start to do some good for the country and it's citizens. This partisan politics is killing this country....

I got very frustrated and went to bed. Maybe I'll watch the end later.

I'm so sick of illegals being called 'immigrants'. They are not immigrants they are criminals. My grandmother was an immigrant - I know the difference. I'm not insensitive to the plight of the kids brought here, but don't blame us. It's their parents fault.

I think I'll send them a letter too. I'm ticked!

It was totally disgusting. Although I needed a barf bag, I watched the entire program because I wanted to see just how low they would stoop. The few anti-illegals present were interrupted each time they attempted to speak, and it was nothing but a huge load of propaganda crapola.

Of course they featured DREAMie sob stories, complete with crocodile tears. One of the arrogant DREAMies appeared onstage with the panel, proudly proclaiming his illegal status. True to form, he even wore a pin which read, “No Papers.” When asked if he would return to Mexico if the DREAM Act and CIR fail, he stated, “I’m not going anywhere!” If they think their little charade will garner support, they are sadly mistaken. In my opinion, this in-your-face defiance will backfire like the massive marches.

The illegal-fest can be viewed at the following link. I recommend watching it on an empty stomach.

NO, they're not immigrants, they are UNDOCUMENTED immigrants.

If there was any justice or semblance of law in this country, they would have handcuffed that little smartass and shipped him and his family back to mexico. The illegals know that the INS is wimpy and won't do a thing to harm them.
