The immigration debate is tainted by a sense of entitlement from illegal aliens that they have some kind of right to illegally cross our border and work in the United States......The primary argument is that there is no work or opportunity for them where they live, and in order to feed their families they must go “al norte”.......The second and related argument is there is “trabajo”…work…waiting for them in the US.

They forgot there are legal channels

There isn't a legal channel available to everyone who wants to come here because we have annual quotas that keep in mind population growth and the availability of jobs and resources for immigrants so as to not negatively impact our own citizens. Those who don't make the cut have no right to come here illegally anyway regardless of their reasons.

Yeah but those legal channels take too long and anyway if someone wants to hire them for three bucks and hour you're just a big meanie if you don't let them come. You're also a bad person for using daring to imply that illegals speak Spanish. Remember it is your responsibility to provide for the world's poor. If that means that your schools are overcrowded well or your taxes go up or you get underbid for a job that you needed to feed YOUR family that's just too bad. Employment laws are racist nonsense perpetrated by evil white people.



Hey, I thought I'd save some people a bit of typing . . .

LOL.

If I made a post characterizing all anti-illegal arguments as "they're all rapists and murderers" (even though some posters have basically implied EXACTLY THAT) you'd be all up in arms about "twisting words". But you don't mind just wholesale fabrication - as long as it's YOU doing it.

Illegals don’t even have a “right” to be here. So, how on earth could they possibly have a “right” to work?

They are being treated better than citizens.

Obama even admits they work at jobs we Americans don't want which is a lie.

Sadly, yes, they are being treated better than citizens. In my opinion, Obama is a wimp, a panderer, and a liar. And, before I am accused of being a right-wing Obama-hater, I am a moderate Independent (recovering liberal Dem) and I voted for him. But, unless he changes his stance, he most certainly will not get my vote in 2012, and I have lots of company.

So like, they are only here because the rich people want them to work because they can exploit them and pay them what you guys refer to as "slave" labor and at the same time they are living better than U.S. citizens?

Gold Jerry! Gold.
