So automatically agree with the "she can go back" posts. Grew up in violent Detroit but have parents that were born here...am leagl.

We must stop being lead by our emotions and see the senselessness of supporting another illegal soul here until we become a robust country once agian!

thanks for editing my post, I'm always open for correction.

It has nothing to with emotion, and I don't think the US should care for the whole world, you are just putting words in my mouth

As for the feel effects... what effects do you see??, where yu feeling those effects 3 years ago before the economic downturn

I am from Houston Texas, so I know what illegal immigration can do to a city.
I have read Studies and experience real life add that too...

Before you judge, you need to talk to a real life illegal immigrant
Are do you think all hispanics are illegals
How can you tell an illegal immigrant huh from an American citizen??? i just want to know

Do you think all low skill workers are illegals?? Because I cant tell if they are legal or illegal
So miss me with that bull****

And Houston economy isn't hurting at all.
Your above post is ladened with emotion. How can I tell an illegal immigrant from an American you ask? In my profession I talk to real life illegals EVERYDAY and ask them very personal information about their medical history family history etc. Their brazen attitudes filled with entitlement has gotten out of hand. The hand outs MUST stop now. Keep your left sided "studies" to yourself as I'm sure they are riddeld with miss information. We can't take care of the whole world, its not possible.

2005? Walmart does not hire illegal aliens today. They are also not breaking any laws with their business..........today.

They cleaned it up just as EVERY OTHER business that uses illegal aliens for labor needs to do.

If I may approach the elephant in the room...

If you are in favor of people breaking our immigration laws, drifting over the border w/ no consequence and possibly being given amnesty, what of all those who have applied for citizenship within the proper channels and have a considerable wait to become legal citizens of the country?

Why should they even bother?
Why would we have these channels in the first place?

Looking forward to a well-thought-out answer.

Correct me if I am wrong but I don't think Walmart hired illegal aliens directly. They used contractors that sent them cleaning people who were illegal aliens. Now Walmart may or may not have known the contractor was sending illegals but that is the way that I remember it.

And i buy their brand and go to their store so obviously i want them to exist

not becuase who they hire or what they do..
so you can miss me too

This thread is about ILLEGAL immigrants, which also includes those companies which hire them. You are perfectly aware of that. Quit playing stupid and trying to squirrel your way out of it.

You are correct from what I have read. It was clean up crews and what not.

I don't know why the poster would try and lump Walmart into an illegal immigration debate but I've seen plenty more far fetched comparisons. I'm starting to think that most of the people defending these hiring practices are the exact ones using illegal labor.

Maybe their clients are all illegals, so quality of writing is a moot point
