Oh, I read it. You object to the comparison between illegals and criminals. Your solution to the illegal problem is to make it so they are not here illegally. My answer to THAT is we may as well do away with all laws.

Yes, and my post which you supposedly read explained EXACTLY why that's a flawed response.

Guess what guys, your position is quickly being swept away to the dustbin of history. You will be foaming at the mouth a lot more in the future. I guess you guys can feel better about yourselves by furiously typing words like "invaders" into your computers and imagining freedom-lovers all over the internet having aneurysms while reading your hate, but in the real world, we're winning.
Yes you are winning

California poverty rate rises in 2010 for fourth year in a row - latimes.com

The number of Californians living in poverty grew for the fourth straight year in 2010

No money, no jobs, no health insurance, but Californians sure have plenty of live-in maids and landscapers.

The problem with this comparison (as has been pointed out in the past) is this:

* if we massively reform immigration so these people can immigrate legally, the problems of ID theft, unlicensed drivers, etc instantly disappear.

* if we legalize rape and robbery, the problems of people's stuff disappearing and people being sexually assaulted do NOT disappear.
WE will decide who we let in the USA. If a bunch of illegal aliens are mad bout that, to bad.

Aliens: dont call us, well call you IF we want you.

Amazingly, some people who are US citizens don't feel the need to selfishly hoard their status.

Can you explain why you feel that the USA has an obligation to citizens of other countries?

What's especially bad is the blatant discrimination against American citizens.

Why should American citizens be ticketed for not having licenses and liability insurance when a bunch of criminals from other countries can decide to break the laws to come here and are not expected to drive with licenses and insurance? Why should Americans have to register vehicles and pay those big taxes when illegals aren't required to do so?

Illegals break any law that inconveniences them. You also don't see them paying child support, their children are instantly added to welfare rolls. The politicians obviously see an advantage in winning their votes by exempting them from as many laws as they can, including the law requiring drivers to have licenses and insurance.

Eric said illegal aliens, not legal immigrants so what are you talking about? And yes we collectively as citizens of this country under our government do decide who can migrate to our country and in how many numbers. You have a problem with that? Obviously your family wasn't excluded and yet you complain.

"law abiding illegal immigrants" LOL what a concept. Let's also not persecute law abiding murderers, law abiding rapists, law abiding robbers then?
