OK I know I haven't been on CD long but can somebody please tell me something?

The topic of this thread is "tell me how immigrants are ruining this country"?

But I am mostly reading posts about how illegal immigrants are ruining this country.

My previous post on this thread was giving examples of ways immigrants are ruining this country. Shouldn't this thread be talking about immigrants instead of illegals?

Just wondering.

From reading the initial posting, it appears both angles are legitimate discussions within the context of the thread. Discussing the legal immigrants would be acceptable too.

I'm quite new here too and this is the problem with groups interchanging the term "immigrants" with "illegals"...I don't think anyone has a problem with immigrants (who are legally here)..I think the topic was meant to be about illegals and the problems they cause, but then I could have just misunderstood...I've been known to

Unless you're a resident, you probably can't get drafted by another country - there may be different rules for different countries though.

When I posted this, my point was to show that in some cases being an "immigrant" will usually throw you in with the large group of people who are "illegal", it has come to the point that the terms are used interchangeably. I was also pointing out that there are different types of illegal aliens (those who are in the process of becoming legal).

point well taken dude...the question then becomes: Just what is the LEGAL process for becoming a LEGAL IMMIGRANT?...Once again if they're not following the LEGAL process to become a legal resident I just can't support them. And to my knowledge running over here covertly, and out of the view of U.S. Border agents, isn't part of the legal process of becoming an immigrant. But I do understand your point.

The pro-ILLEGAL supporters like to use the term "anti-immigrant" to try and make the anti-ILLEGAL people like myself look "prejudiced" against ALL immigrants. It's a very sad attempt to fleece Americans.

All ILLEGAL Alien INVADERS need to be put on a Deportation bus IMMEDIATELY.

I agree. Legal immigrants are welcome, illegals need to go the hell home.
