And the Irish stole jobs from Americans back in the day.

I mean, you're up in arms about people speaking Spanish, which is not at all a characteristic limited only to illegal immigrants.

The Irish didn't come here waiting for an amnesty to forgive them for coming illegally. They came the right way in the first place. Yes, I do oppose another amnesty. It is wrong for this country in so many ways.

You do realize that things were done differently in the past, don't you? So many things have changed since then and one is that we do have quotas and criteria to meet TODAY.

What is up with none of you guys understanding how hypotheticals operate?

It's about legal status, not race, but the accusations ARE ALL EXACTLY THE SAME.

Yeah, you know more than the experts. You even ignore the fact that millions of Americans are of work but you think these illegals should stay and keep these jobs that Americans need and then import many more immigrants to add insult to injury.
