with all due respect...i wonder , why you have not become a member of this forum? yet you would like to spout off this sort of attack.
you have strong opinions on just who is criminal here, yet ,i wonder, if an illegal immigrant killed, or injured someone you love, how would you feel then?i have personal experience with that, so i feel i have a right to feel the way i do aboputt illegal immigration.
now, as for the idea that anyone who came to america 250 years ago being here illegally, then maybe you are the one who should read your history book , because there was no form of immigration control back then...and my family immigrated here in 1639 from england and we didn't kill or injure anyone doing it....i also have indian blood in my family tree, choctaw and cherokee, and i don't think you really know how all of us feel about the "whites" coming to america...in fact the choctaw nation actually lived and still do with a great respect for the "whiteman"
this forum is about illegal immigration, doesnt matter what the race....doesn't matter about the nationality...seems to me you are the only one pointing out one race....so what does that make you?
illegal immigration is a crime....whether you want to believe it or not.

Great!!... Perhaps we'll see some home grown terrorists in the near future or have some come in as an indian but is actually a fundamentalist muslim wanting to harm the US again?. When will they ever learn? unless the US government wants this to happen so they can make up another reason for a war with iran in the expense of having a few thousand american lives 6 foot under? And when they take the high end jobs and business then america will be screwed left right and center, take england for example.

As I have posted in the past:

To whom it may concern:

Yes; atrocities were committed against all 'races' by all 'races' during history.

Get over it!

If the Native Americans were the only ethnicity who were massacred, etc. there would be cause for redress. But they were 'merely' one group who suffered-----and, not just from Whites------some American Indian nations/tribes were quite warlike against other bands.

Witness what the English did to the Irish not so terribly long ago: 150 years ago the Irish had the rep of being drunken fighters who were 'worthless'------today; that same ethnic group (in Ireland) has a higher per capita income than either Great Britain or Germany. And the stereotype of an Irishman today is that of a genteel, folk music loving, hardworking, sober individual.

No too shabby for a bunch of formerly 'Shanty Irish'?

Spain and Italy are two other lands that have changed dramatically for the better since even just WW II.

The three above examples are now dealing with immigration as well------with Spain asking the EU for logistical help in controlling their maritime borders due to the influx of illegals from Africa.

Talking Logic

Immigrants have come to the U.S. for years. India immigrants included. The came Legally. We have no trouble with legal. It is illegals milking the government out of Billions of dollars. You did say Indians were in high paying jobs. Good for them. They aren't on welfare. We need more of them. They are legal or they wouldn't be in high paying jobs. That draws attention.

It is sometimes hard to figure their idiotic mentality, but they will be sure to let you know, LOL and I imagine they will tell you that it is ALL Illegals.

I would watch the choice of words sassy - this is not the right forum to use the word idiotic. It might be considered a personal attack. In reality, it contributes nothing to the discussion. But keep firing away the ad hominem attacks if that's what floats your boat.

I personally do not support any kind of illegal activity - whether it is a person from Guatemala or Guinea, if they are earning $10/hour or $100/hour - they are here illegally and have no business being here.

I couldn't care less where they are coming from. I only know that they need to get out of here.
