All too often we hear about Pro supporters wanting to reward lawbreakers by giving them Amnesty, but what about the HONEST I repeat HONEST people who have paid their dues and waited...and waited....and waited patiently to get into this country? The majority of the people who have waited and are still waiting actually have something to offer this country. Why dont they protest and support the HONEST people?

I'd love to see recent legal immigrants mount a counter protest to those pro illegal protesters. The thing is illegal immigrants want to be grouped in with those who follow the rules.

Illegal immigration has become the new “cause” for the bleeding hearts. Plus, it is a much more lucrative endeavor for special interest groups, such as La Raza. As far as they’re concerned, legal immigration is mundane, so it’s ignored, and it only serves to legitimize the issue. This, of course, is the primary reason illegal alien apologists continue to refer to illegal aliens as “immigrants” and deliberately conflate legal with illegal. As we all know, when they mention “immigrant” rights, they are only referring to illegals. After all, what “rights” are immigrants lacking?

They don't care.

They think we owe them.

They think they are somehow "special" and entitled to everything this country has to offer.

I feel bad for my dad who came from Brazil legally, my great grandparents who moved here from England and Canada...legally.

Illegals believe they are above the laws. They don't care that there are legal procedures to follow, they want what they want and that's all they care about.

Many illegals don't bat an eye paying criminal organizations good money to be smuggled in, or to purchase from these criminals laser visas they know full well are fraudulent, usually stolen and they know full well that these criminals work for the violent cartels destroying their own country.

They don't care what becomes of their own country, they don't care to work for reforms or to build up their country, nor do they have respect for this country and it's laws.

I come from a family of Legal Immigrants completely opposed to anything supporting illegal immigrants.

Its the people who follow the rules that get screwed over by people breaking them, its even worse when there are SUPPORTERS of people breaking the law.


It is comparable to people robbing a bank, saying they are desperate for the money and people say "well they do work hard in the jobs, and they really need the money to get a better life" It is selfish and hurts the law abiding citizens.
