That's not what they are saying at all. They are saying just because something, anything doesn't affect them does not mean they don't have an opinion on it. With that said, illegal immigration affects everyone.

One guy I worked with, when we did the sweep and found out who was legal and who wasn't, got caught up in it. We give all of them 72 hours to either produce legal documents, or not come back. This guy produced legal documents. Come to find out, he had went through the legal channels and filed everything. But in the interim, he had went to work using a fake name, drivers license, SS card and was afraid to go down and get his paperwork because he would look stupid coming to work and saying, "I have a different name." but once he was called on it, it only took him about 4 hours to round up all the proper paperwork and show up. Course, then he had to go through and get everything straightened out through HR. But he could of had legal paperwork for over 2 years and just never picked it up.
Isn't falsifying information on a job application grounds for termination? If it had been you or I we would have been let go.

Dmitry Paniotto just another of those who takes advantage of new to the country peopleDuring the representation of my asylum case as homosexualDmitry Paniotto reveal contempt to me, used jokes which sounded like a personal threat'people who has complaints at our office do not stay in this country anymore'When he received my documents from the russian authorities he refused to sign any paper that he is receiving them.He1) collected $3,0002) he does not know and never asked what was the reason of my first entry in the US3) he represented my persecution as gay, but he does not know and never asked the name of my first lover.3.5) his activities were consistent of receiving money and providing me with 3 pages document, after that he was almost non-responsive and completely forgot about me.4) he was absent (on vacation) during my court hearing on 14th of May.5) he did not send most of the documents, I provided to him or copies to Anaheim, but only the asylum petition and a couple of documents, so my application referred to the absent documents, which made me look stupid before the US authorities, while I was instructed by him represent myself on my own on the interview.5.5) he sent some documents which I never had a chance to see before the Anaheim interview, so I could not represent them during the process of interview.6) he refused to give any of my documents back when I visited him in person on the 8th of July (more than 2 months after the Anaheim interview). I can prove the existance of the documents (I made the notarized copies), first he approved that he had the documents and have forgotten to send them, but promised to return them to me later, now he claims that he never received them from me. He has some of my documents but refuses to return them and offered ridiculous discounts for continuance of my representation in the immigration court.

The problem I have is the completely unwinnable position illegal immigration puts upon the US and everyone living in it. If they sneak in and fly under the radar long enough to have kids and raise them here who form lifeline connections it's near impossible to just say "leave". Yes, I know some people do say just that, but anyone who thinks about it and the effects it has on those who know nothing else BUT life in the USA (and may not even speak their native language all that well) isn't sleeping easy at the thought.

I don't like that we feel pressured to take responsibility for people that should not be here. That's the bottom line.

Suffice to say: if you or I were living in Mexico illegally--------the Mx authorities would not be as 'nice', shall we say.

1. Sanctuary cities. . .I live in one and hate it.
2. Never ending volleyball games all week, along with the cars, the noise, and the trash after the games. (Does this only happen in NJ?)
3. My real estate tax dollars paying for illegals in schools.

I understand that but it still doesn't make me feel good. It's like I said, you can't win.
