If illegals are employed, they are taking a job from an American, illegals contribute to the unemployment problem. If illegals contributed positively, their own countries wouldn't be as hell-bent on getting rid of them.

This President, and his minion administration. They don't get what illegally means either, or they do, and don't give a damn, because how they get their votes don't matter.

Don't get me started on illegals driving. I could get into something i rather not, too painful. But believe me there are illegal drunk drivers out there, killing innocent people, and nothing being done about it.
What about the one about 8 months ago in L.A. who drove over a man on a bike, and drug the man to his death, people were hollaring at him, but he did not stop. He was on his way too Mexico, Mexico is only good to them, when they are in trouble.

Any one from L.A. know what happened in that case. I would be interested in knowing.

Would it be better that she were unable to drive at that time?...
Did you wife ever live in the US illegally? I'm lead to believe from your posts that that was never the case, that she did everything by the book to be in the US. Yet, in spite of her doing everything necessary - law and procedure - to become legal in the US, you strongly support illegals. How does that work? Doesn't supporting illegals go against everything your wife did to obtain her legal status? If I was her and went about going by the law to get legal status, I wouldn't be happy with someone who supports illegals, or is it a matter of not wanting illegals to have to go through the trouble of becoming legal?

I would think she would want everyone to follow the law and procedures to obtain legal status as she had. Keep in mind, I'm assuming (from your posts) that she was never in the US illegally.

Nice cover up.
Most do NOT pay taxes because they work off the books.
You must know that.

If they are here by breaking the laws they should be given a break from being jailed and allowed to go back where they came from.

Our schools are overcrowded. Our kids are not learning what they should because the teachers are too busy translating, our hospitals have been closing because they cannot afford all that free medical care.

Our compassionate system is met with 'gimmie more, gimmie more'. Nope. Go back home, illegals. You don't belong here.

Would those roads that are going to be paved be the current dirt roads that they travel on to get into the US?
