They don't deserve any privileges unless they return home, go through proper channels, pay all applicable fees like other immigrants, and thousands of dollars in back taxes, fines, and penalties for their unreported wages. They should also be banned from this country for a specified period for their deliberate violation of our laws. Moreover, those guilty of ID theft and fraud should face the same penalties as citizens or legal immigrants, including being required to pay restitution to their victims.

Our government has shamefully allowed illegals to thumb their noses at our laws and our sovereignty, and then rewards them by allowing them to go to the front of the line ahead of law-abiding immigrants, coddles them, and considered their "cause" a civil rights issue.

Their arrogance, sense of entitlement, and total lack of appreciation for our incredible generosity, just makes my blood boil. I would still oppose them, but if they showed just a modicum of humility and gratitude, I probably wouldn't feel such overwhelming disdain.

Uh; why give illegal aliens anything? I'd def Ok with giving then free transport to where they come from and that's it. How'd you like it if someone busted into your house and stole your stuff that you worked for? I'm be pissed off if that happened to me and I'm being nice. Sheesh!

If a group of folks wanting to legalize marijuana, lit up a few....on the steps of the capitol, I have no doubt they would be arrested. Even blind folks with glaucoma, and chemotherapy patients.

Yet, illegal aliens can hold signs stating they are illegal and want rights and everyone cheers.

Anyone see the irony?

What we need is a few good raids by ICE on these demonstrations. I know, I kinow, it ain't gonna happen, but I can dream can't I? I remember a day when cries of 'La Migra, La Migra' rang out, and everyone ran and hid.

There are people living in this country that come from all different backgrounds where english is not their first language, and they get no special treatment. Yet, a spanish-only speaking illegal alien can waltz into any public service office and be catered to like they are God's gift to the free world. In fact, I don't think you can even land a state job with the Department of Human Services in Oregon if you are not bilingual (English and Spanish only, of course). Occasionally they look for people bilingual in Russian (for Woodburn residents), but 90% of the time they look for spanish speakers only.

Who can argue with the truth ditchlights;

everything you have written is really true. It is true that these people we do cater too, in a way we do no other.

In doing this, we contribute, to their way of thinking, there way, of putting one over on us all.

Is this the future we want for our children, their children, what will the Country look like should they take it over. Far fetched, not really, think about it.
So many employers will not even interview you, if you do not speak spanish.

This is what happens to an empire that needs cheap slave labor, when the native citizens become too good to work hard & make their place due to cultural degeneracies & supposed economic inequalities. Everyone wants it now without earning it so they sulk and say "It's all good!" as a mantric justification in adopting laziness.

Only the greedy employers want cheap, illegal labor. Most Americans do not and in fact are having to compete with them for jobs in this country at less than a fair wage. It is nonsense that most Americans are too lazy to do those jobs. Who do you think did them before the arrival of illegal immigrants by the millions? Cultural degeneracies? Are you saying that Americans are inferior?

If you're stopped by police and they find a roach in your car, you'll be arrested. So, I think we all know what would happen if anyone dared be so brazen. They would be arrested and locked up post-haste, and there would not be one "civil rights" group demanding their release. Nor would anyone be accused of "racism" if they opposed their demonstration.

Illegal aliens are the only group of lawbreakers in this country that are treated like innocent, mistreated victims.
