If we deported the parents this would not be happening.

You are also misrepresenting the facts, immigrant does not equal illegal immigrant. Two totally different concepts. You are being disingenous.
Thank you for admitting the truth. Libertarians generally vote for conservative republicans.

I have misrepresented nothing. I am being disingenuous of nothing. Illegal immigration and legal immigration are not two different things. They are related to one another.

I know you think immigrants are the wrong kinds of people. This is the what most conservatives think about immigrants whether legal or undocumented.

My wife is a legal immigrant. We worked hard and spent a lot of time and money getting her legal status. Illegals are the problem.

Indeed they will argue that the wrong kinds are coming here. That would be those who want to do thing illegaly. But again, that is not being anti-immigrant.

It is not those who come from the wrong nations, but those who come without an education and expect this country to take care of them. They are overburdening the system is so many ways.
You see, we have enough people just like them in the United States, we don't need to import more. These illegal aliens KNOW this and they simply don't care that we don't need people with less than a high school education.

Whether we allow 1 million legal immigrants a year or 1 trillion, we will still have the same people sneaking into our country.
Why is it so hard to understand that the United States does not want nor need the poor, stupid people from the rest of the world? THESE are the illegals - or a majority of them. They have nothing to offer this country, but we should let them in anyway. This thinking is just wrong.
We do not need them here taking the lowest paid jobs (and undercutting United States citizens) and other benefits. We do not need them here destroying our school systems and our hospitals.

Those who can't see the destruction the illegals have caused are the blind ones. It didn't just start yesterday.
Its not Africans in large #'s or Australians its Hispanics. They only support their group of people here illegally not any other nation that is non Spanish speaking.

If you want to get technical the Constitution prevents government supported education but since we crossed that Rubicon long ago we might as well check the status of people using government (taxpayer funded) schools.

I don't know what most people want. We are discussing what conservatives want. Conservatives don't want legal immigration expanded because they have a problem with the people who would come here legally, which of course proves that they don't only have a problem with illegal immigration, just as you admitted they have a problem with legal immigration.
