illegals should be more than just a federal/state issue, it should be an issue with every tax paying/legal citizen in this country. If you were in the work force supporting a family I think you may see things a little different.

Hear Hear! I only wish they just spit and urinated in the food! I read something in our newspapers immigration forums that made me so sick, I wish I had never read it. ( insert puking icon ) I'm gagging just thinking of it.

I believe Mexicans can do this as well, but heres the ongoing question.. who will be the Mexicans after the Mexicans 0.0
What I am about to say will propably not make me very popular but one of the smartest, hardest working immigrants I ever knew was from Cuba. He worked for me for several years and then went back to Miami. He used to tell me horror stories about the things that he used to endure in Cuba. I can totally understand the "wet foot/dry foot" policy. He tried escaping once before he finally made it to America and spent two years in prison for his efforts. How he got here was pretty amazing. He actually build a boat out of an old 56 Chevy. To me, this is the kind of immigrants that this country needs. He LOVED America with a passion!

Who says immigrants don't love America? Those illegals you see at marches-- they don't know what the hell is going on. They're just there for the free taquitos and horchata.

StSmith,

What does anti-immigration exactly have to do with "God Bless America." Many anti-illegal immigration activists use patriotism to justify their positions, which they support in their eyes, but this is to funny. Many illegal immigrants waived the American flags wanting to become legal Americans, yet I don't see you mention that small piece of information.

Plenty of Americans burn the American flag. Americans who believe in communism that is.

I have no problem "debating" the issue with anyone providing that they use facts, not emotion to support their position. I have read your posts; it is abhorrently obvious that you are pro illegal immigration. So be it, but don't criticize me for my love of country!
