Why or why not?

This country was built on immigrants and those with such a zest for deportation might not have been able to make their argument as American citizens if it weren't for their illegal immigrant ancestors. We truly have bigger fish to fry than worrying about this topic.

These people are illegal, are not Europeans, and will not assimilate. Their increasing presence will only bring about greater cultural, social, and racial strife, and will help destroy any future robust economy of the U.S. That is, if we ever get back on our feet. Oh, they broke the law, too.

The US is already deporting illegal immigrants:
Deportation of illegal immigrants increases under Obama administration
I find it hilarious it's been done by someone who can't even prove he's American The better question:Should the US deport itself and leave this land to its native people

My parents LEGALLY immigrated to America. These illegal immigrants can come....if they do it legally. I say deport all of them, BUT fix the system so It'd be easier for people to acquire citizenship.

I support laws like SB 1070, and the similar laws in AL and GA.

Some liberal who lives in a homogeneously white area away from the problems caused by illegal immigration, who likes to fancy themselves enlightened on issues related to people of color and diversity, even when it is of the illegal variety.

Others who vote no are mestizo and Indian "hispanics" who are gleefully happy with the U.S. not stopping more of their people from coming into the U.S., all so their people have more clout.

Get rid of them. We need to take a stand and show the world that anyone can't just walk right into our country.

we need control over who and what is coming in. Or at least make it seem like we do
