Are you comparing law breakers who bypassed our immigration laws to taxpayer AMERICANS like me, ChicagoNut and etc?

You need a reality check.

So if I walk into a house and live there (without the owner's permission) I can say it is my house because I am present there? LOL

Don't try to argue things you don't understand.
and your saying you understand the situation and how? Just from it own opinions I'm guessing

What would you do if you were an illegal immigrant or you parents were legal immigrants?



I would kick our a$$es out of the country and apply for legal citizenship.

you didn't answer the question, how do you know so much about illegal immigration, is it just from your opinions

I worked illegally in China for awhile. I didn't know it at first, but the company I was employed by (purposely) brought me in on a visa which did not permit me to be working there (but it was cheaper and easier to get). Kinda figured it out when immigration showed up and they hid us (the first of several such incidents)!! Even then the company tried to claim there was "an electrical problem". Urgh. I was not ready to leave yet and I was making money, not to mention immigration was more than willing to take bribes, so I stayed and worked anyway. Eventually the gov. started to crack down on employers who did this (also the people I worked for were awful, morally corrupt individuals), so I left a couple of months before my contract ended.

I don't think I would want to do that on purpose, though. Immigration visits at my apartment were nerve-wracking as well (stupid company told me I had to pretend to be an exchange student, immigration did not believe me...)

Part of the reason I didn't feel too bad about working illegally was that the immigration authorities, the government, the companies there, etc. were all very lax and hypocritical about the rules. The government lets businesses do whatever as long as they are paying up for the priviledge (only reason they cracked down on us was because we were in Beijing and they were putting on a good show before the Olympics). If I had thought I'd get into trouble or actually deported, I'd have quit the job.

Hm, I live in America. That is how I know. You don't need to be friends with an illegal alien to know anything. You don't have to be related to one.

All you have to do is go hang out outside the Welfare Office for 20 minutes. Or go to any hospital in the Boston area....Go to any construction site.


My father came here LEGALLY.


Illegal aliens get no sympathy from me or any of my family members.

How do they pay income taxes?

They can only pay income taxes by using Fake or Stolen IDs.

How noble of them.

LOL

I'm not trying to defend the illegal immigrants that came here, I'm trying to defend the children that were brought here, they didn't make any decision
