Meh. Even if that is true (the real number doesn't scare me), that really just means the actual percentage of them committing crimes and causing other serious issues is even lower.

How did you reach that conclusion? Remember, we don’t know who they are, and many flee to Mexico to avoid apprehension. Furthermore, one rape or murder, is one too many. Let’s not forget the crime of ID theft, or the BILLIONS borne by taxpayers annually to support illegals. Wow! The pro-illegal mindset is astounding.

So you're of the mindset that if one legal immigrant commits murder, the other x million need to go? lol

See, there's the rub.

Legal vs. illegal--an indistinguishable difference in the world of the illegal alien apologists.

That's the rub? That's funny since I"m just asking a question. Meanwhile we have Eleanor talking about how we can safely categorize any Spanish speaking person as an illegal because hey more than 50% of illegals are Mexican and.....if they were a citizen they should know English. Legal immigrants apparently don't even exist in her world.

Apparently, you have turned down the wrong street. You need the Legal Immigration Forum.

Shame on her. She should do her research.

The number of Mexican illegal immigrants is actually over 62% according to the Pew Hispanic Center (and everybody knows that they tend to underestimate when it comes to illegal aliens from south of the border).

How bigotted can a person be? Expecting those who immigrate legally to be able to communicate in the lingua franca of the country in which they are now residing! Nevermind that being able to adequately comprehend and speak the language is a citizenship requirement!

Shame! For shame!

to gain citizenship yes, not to be a citizen. They should do away with the requirement.
