Yes. For 'Murica.

I think if the GOP wasn't so hostile to anybody not white, you probably wouldn't have so many liberals defending immigration. Too me, its simply, if one side is for it/against it the other side has the opposite opinion.
That's a thought, but Asians overwhelmingly vote for democrats.

We are not liberals.

We are not ethnocentric racists.

We don't support illegal immigration nor amnesty.
Then the descriptions don't fit you so why the need to mention all of the above about you and your family?

I didn't make any sweeping generalizations. I gave a few different catagories of those who support amnesty.

Geez, where is this supposed hatred by the GOP for anyone who isn't white? What a ridiculous and lying statement to make.

Then you're clueless. Even a Democrat politician/rich business person would not interview and hire domestic help and landscapers they have agencies that take care of that.

The favor it because they and the elected representatives are just plain lazy. There is to much work involved in processing people - government workers will avoid doing any heavy lifting. It has nothing to do with political belief - it is just that some Americans do not want to do the work that illegals do...and Americans higher up the food chain do not want to do the work of getting illegals under control. The problem should have been dealt with 20 years ago...kind of too late now.

It was a part of the deal he struck with the Democrats in Congress. He later regretted it.

Yes, Reagan made a mistake no one is saying otherwise but how does that justify making the same mistake again especially when there are at least quadruple the number of illegals today with 23 million Americans out of work? Pro-illegals will use anyone and anything to justify their stance today on this issue.

So Reagan passing Amnesty was the Democrats fault??

Proof that Republicans dont give a crap about integrity or personal responsibility.

Supporting amnesty = racism and treason!!!

What about Reagan? well uh, duh, that was different, he was a White Republican.

Let me guess, White Republicans are exempt from your generalizations.
That argument is so old and overused. This was a different time and the future of America wasn't hanging in the balance. Anyone who supports amnesty should be deported as well as the 12 million illegals.
