Dreamers deserve the chance to have the American "dream" because their parents dropped anchor on purpose when they arrived because they knew it was the only way they could get social assistance and be allowed to remain here.

Here's what the reconquistas are trying to force you to believe:

From the Aztlan position: You are illegally occupying a land that your ancestors stole from the original inhabitants, so 30,000,000 are coming to claim what is rightfully theirs which your ancestors stole from them. And all of them deserve it.

They're here to do the jobs Americans won't do!

****The truth is, they never should have been allowed to come here ILLEGALLY in the first place.
And here is my response to the reconquistas who spout this nonsense. The tribal ancestors of the Mexicans weren't indigenous to this country so they have no claim on the USA based on genetics. Mexico as a country only held parts of the southwest for 25 years and it wasn't stolen from them. The USA paid 15 million for those territories. Another question comes to mind. What are illegal Mexicans doing all over our country then rather than just those parts of the southwest that Mexico once held?

It's simple really-----Why are we responsible for what our ancestors did 200 years ago, but illegal alien children aren't responsible for what their parents did less than 20 years ago?

If Obama and Napalitano actually enforced the law we wouldn't have a problem. Nobody wants to take a stand... Anyone willing to crack down on illegals will win the 2012 election

It is of course simple. You are not and they are not.
