hardly done in the name of religion,

America with a terrorist problem?

Let's watch our analogies and stop being naive or America
will become even more of a divided mess than it is.

To my knowledge there were no welfare programs back when the Japanese wanted to migrate here.

(i know i will not get a straight answer for these questions)
Low wage earners depend on welfare to subsidize their income. Most coming here illegally are low wage earners and have children. Obviously since illegal immigration has impacted the blue-collared workforce the most we don't need more of those types of workers especially since we have 23 million Americans out of work. Are those answers straight enough for you?

The greedy ones don't want to pay a living wage and that is why they hire illegals instead.

It's Not Gonna Happen on Immigration

It's looking real bad for illegal aliens in the US.
If CIR is not passed, what will change?

It has nothing to do with skin color. There is a large supply of illegals willing to work for peanuts and therefore that is what they pay. Remove illegals from the equasion and they would have to pay a fair wage to an American in order to stay in business.

We won't be adding millions of illegals and their families to our society permanently.

Cite me the passage in the bible where Christ says it's okay to kill
infidels and I will stand corrected.

Without getting too theological on an immigration list, can you explain
to me what you mean by "your" god? You sound like either an
atheist or someone with strong feelings about Judeo-Christian
concepts of a master being.

LMFAO! good one, glory
Who's talking about "immigrants"? The topic is illegals not immigrants. Why the reference to race? There are Americans of all races/ethnicities that have been negatively impacted by the loss of jobs to illegals. Whatever the minimum wage is that is the bottom line that an employer by law has to pay a legal worker. They can get away with paying an illegal less and that's why they hire them. To my knowledge Wal-Mart had illegals working in janitorial jobs but it was the contractor that hired them that was guilty not Wal-Mart itself. As for Mc Donald's my local one has an e-verify sign on display. So I doubt they are hiring illegals or that any of them would have the nerve to apply for a job there. Who's laughing now?

Illegal aliens WILL be more scared since it be a gut blow to them. IMHO more and more will go back home.
