Oh gawd, seriously?

You're assuming that they have a RIGHT to come here. They don't. This is our country, not theirs. WE get to decide who immigrates, NOT them. If they can't come legally, then they do have an option: don't come at all. They are not wanted.

And, your response, as usual, is they lack an education. Newsflash: An education is available in Mexico and other countries. If they truly want to “earn” the right to live in this country, they will delay childbirth, get an education, or develop marketable skills that will benefit us. Obviously, their preference is the illegal route. It requires far less effort.

You of course are right, Benicar. If these Mexicans and others south of our border did all of the above there would be a legal way for them to come here.

Then you are misunderstanding the whole problem with illegal immigration...

No, we know what it is. It is as Benicar puts it. They won't put forth the effort to get an education and delay childbirth to make themselves more desirable for legal immigration into our country. They don't care that we have quotas for legal immigration and that we cannot admit all immigrants that want to come here. They don't care how negatively the added numbers above our already reasonable quotas affect our own citizens. In short they are selfish and immoral.

I wonder how many of those students would be able to say what Memorial Day is for? I wonder how many illegal aliens will celebrate the point which keeps America as GRAND as she is?
Not to get off topic but
it's Memorial Day weekend and we all stand up
for America.

They are practicing the 1st Amendment - Free Speech.
Not a 1st Amendment issue. They left class during school hours and should face the consequences.
