No, actually you are ILLEGAL.

What happened to living in the shadows? Oh, that’s right. . . the U.S. is now a free-for-all. Unless an illegal gets caught committing a violent crime, they can proudly wear their t-shirt without the fear of deportation. What a country.

Coming Out shirt
"I am Undocumented" shirts, all come in black. This shirt first made a debut during the National Coming Out of the Shadows week, a time when we urge undocumented youth all over to come out of the shadows and claim their status. Be a part of the movement and get your shirt today!

Why do you care? How is this person affecting your life? I can't believe you people are complaining about T-shirts for God's sake.

I care, because it exemplifies the sheer arrogance of illegal aliens. They are here illegally, so the very least they should do is show enough respect not to flaunt their illegal status. Obviously, you are okay with their insolence, which is certainly your prerogative. I suppose next, they’ll wear an FU shirt, because that is precisely the message they convey.

That's like saying if you haven't been robbed, mugged or raped, or murdered that these crimes shouldn't matter to you.

However, anyone who pays taxes for one is very much affected.

Would you rather be robbed, mugged, raped, murdered, or live in a country where there are a bunch of illegal aliens?

You may notice that one of these is not like the others.

Anybody who looks hispanic is already deemed as a possible illegal so what is the point? I have really met people who think that all hispanic people you see working in landscaping are illegal immigrants. I do not really care about illegal immigration, I believe we should all just give the one's already here US citizenship. And I have seen way more offensive t-shirts then one stating that a person is an immigrant.

We did that in 1986, and look what it got us----20 million more. Are you suggesting that we give amnesty to several million illegal aliens every 25 years, or so? Why would you want to make citizens of several million people you know nothing about? Being illegal aliens means no one knows what their criminal background is, or what diseases they might carry. Could there be terrorists among them? Remember, not all illegal aliens are hard working Mexicans that just want a better life. There are some things we don't need to import.

I felt like that too...That we should give amnesty to the current illegals and allow them citizenship.. but this time really close off the borders...tighten border controls so that we don't have this mess in another 25 years...yes I felt like that too... until as so often happens it hit me right in the face...you see I had a job where I could literally go to any state and find a job...I never had to have a resume...my interviews lasted 10-15 minutes max and I always got the job I applied for. I loved my job..it wasn't a high paying job but for me it was ultimate job satifaction...I got to help people less fortunate then I every day..Every day I wanted to go to work..until I got hurt and couldn't do my job anymore. So, I went thru re-training. I was using alot of the skills I already had..still got to work with people but in a different capacity. But there was a drawback...in order to find a job in my new field I needed 2-5 years of experience and to be bi-lingual...the first is not so hard. My previous experience gave me at least 1 years experience and I could get a small part-time job and volunteer to get the rest. The bi-lingual part? I couldn't even get an interview if I wasn't bi-lingual...If you look on any job board in my area in my field and there are 10 jobs 8 of them require you to be bi-lingual. The other 2 require more years of experience or level of responsibility then I qualify for. This hit me pretty hard and literally sent me in a tailspin...I just couldn't relate to my situation and went into a depression for about 2 years.
That opened my eyes..then this...
Slain Arizona rancher told family illegal alien needed help - CNN

and this....
Texas seeks Mexico's help in Jet Ski death - US news - Crime & courts - msnbc.com

and this...
www.nytimes.com/2010/10/14/us/14border.html
Mexican Police chief investigating jetski killing beheaded

And finally this....
snopes.com: Mexican Flag at Montebello High School


Maybe originally the illegals crossing the border were poor illiterates truely looking for a better life but it has gotten high tech (and don't think for one minute that the drug cartels aren't involved in human trafficking)...and those poor illiterates have moved in and while they may realize what a land of opportunity the U.S. is their children (the anchor babies) have no respect for our country because they have not worked for the right to be here.. it was handed to them on a platter and it's time for the platter to go..and I say send the kids back FIRST.
