Yeppers, you will feel a lot better once you move. Good luck.
You need to move to some poorer state where the citizens NEED the jobs and would riot if illegals were given them.

Many towns in Mexico don't have police and the citizens have to ban together to protect eachother (like a neighborhood watch). They come here and think there are no laws....and in fact we really don't punish criminals here, not like they do in corrupt, third world nations like mexico.

How sad. I wonder how long it will be before we just change the name of our country from The United States of America to the Un-united States of the World and loose our identity all together? There will be no Social Security, the Government will be even more bankrupt than it is now, no government funds for any programs like our military that was designed to keep Americans safe and the rich will move out of this country and it will look like the streets of poor Mexico and Haiti does now with its majority of poverty stricken people. We will become a third world country. So sad.

needless to say. i'm getting the hell out of here.
Makes me sick! I'm not in Alexandria but live central, outside of Richmond, VA. We too are moving ASAP too. Liberals are taking over this state. Let them pay for their illegal friends without us. Maybe a whole bunch of the illegals will buy our house. Our Democratic Governor Kaine stinks too. He won't allow state police to take training to help with ICE. Several VA counties are trying to crack down on illegals only to be met with lawsuits from the lovely illlegal advocates.

Well come on down to Georgia..we've passed some strict laws here against illegals..I "hear" they are leaving the state in droves, although I couldn't tell you one way or the other...dosn't really look any different...
Illegals are like cockroaches, turn on the light, they scatter...start deporting, they move states.

^^the part where you compare human beings to cockroaches wasn't very nice. However wrong they are to be in our country, they are still people. I'm all for deportation and closing our borders, but let's keep things humane.

There's no need to patronize, it really isn't necessary. My point was to stop de-humanizing when speaking about illegal aliens because you lose quite a bit of your audience and the meaning of your message when you refer to a group of people as cockroaches - and I stand by that point.

Too late; we are already a third world country and in many American cities the streets are just exactly like Mexico and/or Haiti. Sadly, most Americans are so mired in our government fostered guilt about being an American that we don't know how to revolt and take our country back because we are so worried about hurting someones feelings. When brave people and towns like; Irving Texas, Farmers Branch Texas, and the great state of Oklahoma, try to make a stand suddenly that overused but popular word of the socialists appears; "racist". I am still holding out hope that many more American towns and cities and states will have the guts to stand up and fight for America.
