If this issue means nothing to you then why are you posting in an illegal immigration forum and complaining about a minority of Americans opposed to illegal immigration that you deam as racist?
You're tryin to argue with me and make assumptions about who I am or who I know just because I'm not all heated like you are over the subject matter?!

Dude...come on.

I am not a dude. I don't need to make assumptions. Your words speak for themselves.

Point is, you don't truly know if someone is legal or illegal just by looking at their ethnicity.
Alot of people jump to conclusions on that one.
Racsist? I dont like white people either who are illegals. I dont like Black people who are illegals. I dont like Asian people who are illegals.

I dont like ANYONE who is illegal.

no didn't know that, are you saying it has just been the obama admin that has refused to deport illegals that don't have a criminal background, or has all past admins not made this a priority?

that doesn't answer the question if either bush's or clinton admins were deporting illegals without criminal back grounds.
post 66 only says that prior to 08 we were less "touchy feelie" doesn't sound like any admin has given this much a priority??

There have been topics started in this forum about this subject. Please search for them. I just know that since Obama has been in office he has instructed Homeland Security to make criminal aliens their priority with a "just release them" policy for the rest. Here is an interesting article about it.

That's because for the most part, the American government fails to convey the fact that we actually need immigrants (legal/illegal) to help maintain the economy and our way of life.


I believe that's the point driven in the article chicagonut posted about them no longer deporting, just releasing them if they have no criminal history- the laws are changing due to changing times.


Here's an article on the Bush administration:
Why Bush Needs "Illegal" Immigrants | Civil Liberties | AlterNet

"In the end, the business interests still win, for the American people will either blame the Mexicans or the President but never the economic system that perpetuates this Punch and Judy show of pitting classes of working people against each other to see which group of puppet masters will gain the temporary advantage in either profit or power."


This is also an interesting read:
American Needs Illegal Immigrants


"Forcing workers who are in the country illegally to leave could create an economic disaster. It would be the equivalent of killing millions of workers."
