I hear plenty of "lock that business up."

Who do Raids and Racial Profiling target? I have yet to see a business owner being reprimanded as a result of a raid.
This is government action, which is unrelated to the argument against illegal immigration.

For every thread on this forum spouting "LOCK THAT BUSINESS UP" I bet I can find 5 that cry "DEPORT" the Mexicans. I am too busy to do it though...lol but I think at least 5 could be found.

Sounds like you put too much stock in this forum. Expand your horizons, Mach.

I think pro-illegal people feel this law is unfair, so they try to justife it by saying well it is only trespassing not that big of a deal.people choose what laws they want to obey,people have always done this.people do not want to look at the big picture of things of why we have laws in the 1st place.

I mean anyone could do that I could say well I will judge illegals by what I see in Ms. which would mean that I am only looking at the little picture of things not the whole picture.here they do not make a big deal very local hard working people I have notice that they are taking away all of the factory jobs for the lower class but we only have about 50,000 so we are not effected as bad as lets say Ca. I choose to look at the big picture and see what can happen but not all people do this.

so I think these people choose to see this law as unfair because they do not want to look at the big picture of illegals.

It is just an example. However, I do find this forum to be particularly extreme anti-illegal. I wish it were more moderate.

I see the big picture, but I don't blame illegals for everything. You don't think there is a reason this government did not enforce the aforementioned laws?

I'll tell you what gets me. Illegals protesting my right to determine the laws in my country by waving a foreign flag in my face. My feelings here are not extreme, but a reflection of human nature when one is shown deep disrespect.

I blame the illegals for their crime which is trespassing. they do this because they are told their are jobs here and money to be made and there is because of big business and government I think I have always stated on the forms that I blame the government not the people(we only do what we can get away with)
I do not hate illegals, but I do hate my government that allows them to come here and take our jobs and I hate the mexican government for not taking care of their people and sending them here.

I feel the american people have been lied to and ignored for to long now they are angry and want changes so times that anger is directed at the illegals instead of the government where it belongs.

I understand your frustration, but your last statement defines my own frustration on this whole thing, those illegals are going to absorb the bulk of the impact unfortunately. Many seem to think the "racial splash" created by this ordeal towards legal hispanics in general is just collateral damage and we should brush it off which also is very frustrating considering who really made all of this happen.

Default you forgot

I would have voted but you didnt include the biggest reason this goes on...

Because judges and the White House dont enforce the laws...
Pro-illiegals are just doing what they are being allowed to do.
