You just said a mouthful. But hate to say it true, not going to start lying now. Dems do prey on the very weak of weak, and uneducated, keeping them afloat in a moving backwards direction, keep throwing the entitlements at them, will get me the vote.

They need to wake up, and not be a part of this, make a dent by stating, this is not ok anymore.

The guy claims, Not the America I want. I don't want him have it either. His America is further South and it's called Mexico.
Evidently the person you are replying to doesn't read all the posts in here where we do blame the employers and our politicians for this mess. However, the blame is three-fold and that would include the illegals also. These kinds of people won't blame the illegals at all though, only the first two.

Indeed. Illegals don't just "cross" they also steal identities and other niceties that pro-illegals want to ignore. The laundry list of crimes per the ordinary illegal is usually long.

Why do they scream racism when hispanics are targeted as the largest illegals in the country but its fare to target them for votes?

Because they are growing in numbers and are the fastest growing race in America right now.

I generally favor stricter enforcement of immigration laws through e-verify, but I don't know...I think there needs to be some sort of remedy for children who come here illegally at an early age and grow up here. They're pretty much Americanized after a while, and it's not fair to just send them back. Ideally, illegals would be caught early and repatriated immediately, but it doesn't happen like that always. And what do we do to people who've come to call America 'home'? I think if they've led a clean life here they should be rewarded with citizenship - in these special cases, but not all.
But, if we allow them to remain, we will be rewarding their parents for breaking our laws. Unfortunately, children often suffer due to their parents' unlawful behavior. We don't make special provisions for the children of citizens who choose to flout our laws. I see no reason the children of illegals should be the exception. Plus, most Dreamies are adults who practice the same lawless behavior as their parents. Some even flaunt their illegal exploits on their website.

Hispanic growth is slowing down between dropping birthrates AND many Mexican and CentAm illegals going back home since things here are still bad, even for Americans.

Agreed, and you expressed it well. I would only add that we don't need these Dreamies remaining here competing for college seats/tuition, resources and later competing for our jobs.

Maybe in your state but not here in Texas. Whites became a minority in 2010 only they are not called "minority". The term is majority-minority.
