This was a nation of smugglers. What happened to you? Did you lose your teeth? Many of you here were born in the USA, but if this is your conduct you have no right to celebrate the 4th of July. That date is reserved for rebels who see unjust laws and aren't afraid to break them. In this sense that woman is far more American than many here.
This is 2012, NOT 1776. Most Americans DON'T illegal aliens in the US. Sheesh!

So were Asian slaves in the Marianna Islands.

I note in all the sob stories of anti immigration camp sibling rivalry excuses that justify their abusive behavior. All in their minds, of course. It's an excuse. It's permission the give themselves, the license to deny they had a hand in anything negative or neglectful that's been going on for most of the last century.

Jasper, if you've made a career out of dodging responsibility for your country, your state, your community... you are the problem. Not immigrants. Not the gubbermint you've emasculated by handing authority over them to corporations.
I'm speaking out against illegal aliens and their friends. Can you say the same thing? Sheesh!

I am going to assume you meant "DON"T WANT illegal aliens in the US."

You may be right, OTOH, the MAJORITY of Americans seem to think that illegals immigrants are just taking jobs other americans do not want.

As for 1776, there were no ILLEGAL immigrants since the quota law wasnt established until 1921 (which btw specifically exempted Mexicans). According to our founding fathers, the "illegals" here now, wouldn't have been an issue. And make no mistake, Mexicans were INVITED HERE as late as the 50s during the Bracero program.

I don't hire illegal aliens.

This is 2012: it's time for all illegal aliens to leave and take their Anchors back home too. Your link's from 2006: things have gotten MUCH worse in the last 6 years. I'm willing to bet MOST Americans want illegal aliens OUT.

Well, unfortunately for you, this is a democratic republic, not a populist democracy.

And fortunately for those AMERICAN citizens you want to throw out, constitutionally, you cannot deport people who are NATURAL BORN CITIZENS.

Maybe, the constitution is nothing big to you, for some Americans, it is nothing to trifle with.

Now being a friend of an illegal alien is something that requires speaking out? Well hell, sign me up.

My brother in law was an illegal immigrant for nearly a year. I don't just call him a friend, I love him. Granted I am sure you wouldn't count him or his "anchors" since he is a nice, white, former Irishman.

Good for you! i myself have turned illegal workers in. And would proudly do it again, infact would love to do it again. All i got was a thank you for being a concern American.

Americans unemployed are out there looking for work, some who been on their job for 20+ yrs. They want to support their families too, but they want to do it right. And nothing illegal.

Illegal in my book, has always been as i was taught when little, wrong, cut it, slice it, dice it, any way you choose, wrong is wrong.
If these people truly cared about their families, they would come to this Country the right way, as any loving caring, nurturing parent would do.

Uh; I'm of Irish family and I don't like illegal alien Irish either. They're NO better than illegal alien Hispanics. Sheesh!
