Without our consent, we are being royally screwed by illegal aliens. Thus, the word “rape” is apropos.

Illegal immigrants come from all over the world, with differing intentions and expectations. The only thing they all have in common is that they entered the country without proper authorizatrion or remained in the country past their athorization. All other generalization on the positive or negative are conjecture.

Let your personal contact and experience be your guide. Many on this forum have little or no dealings with illegal immigrants or illegal immigrant communities. Their information is second-hand at best; with conjecture and mis-information as thier souce knowledge. Many mistakingly equate latino with illegal alien. Many base their "experiences" in dealing with persons they cant even positivly...be for sure, are American citizens, naturalized citizens, visa holders, illegals, or foreigners on vacation.

Assumptions abound on this forum...
Please explain why it is necessary to have firsthand experience with illegals to understand illegal immigration? Do we also have to have a family member killed to understand the crime of murder? Can only victims of theft condemn thieves?

You are either here legally, or you are a scofflaw. No assumptions are necessary.

Well yes they should because you were stereotyping them in a prior post.

Sitting on a chair for 8 hours in a AC room... these people here work and are pleased to work for a minimum wage because they are hard earning people.
They are honest and that is why they say that they are here illegally because what other way are they here! duhhh
The latino community is big and alot of the illegal immigrants do the jobs that the "us citizens" wouldnt even bother at doing.

I am a US Citizen born and raised in CA and i just get so disguisted to see people talk about hard working individuals.

Some people are just self fish and self involved

So, How many living next door to you? How many do you work with?

ILLEGAL IS JUST THAT ~~ ILLEGAL.

Bleeding Hearts just make it harder for others!!! Get your head out of the sand.

Pro illegal should really be changed to pro law breaker. Bleeding hearts don't seem to understand what the word illegal means-contravening the law. It has always been illegal to enter this country illegally, yet bleeding hearts completely ignore this. If I were to illegally enter Mexico I would be deported or imprisoned. The U.S. is the only country that ignores the laws regarding illegal immigration. Pro law breakers just want to take care of everyone, except those that are actually here legally. Despite what the pro law breakers would like to think, illegal immigrants have brought over a lot of drugs and gang activity. I don't see why so many people want to reward someone whom broke the law. There are also many people whom migrated here legally. They work hard for their families and try to give them a better. Bleeding hearts want to make an exception for illegals though.

As a LEGAL migrant I am very offended by your willingness to equate lawbreaking push to the front of the line illegals with those of us who are striving the RIGHT way towards eventual citizenship............

And yes some people ARE just selfish and self involved and yes, I AM looking at you.
