Do what thousands of others do, go through the legal process to become a naturalized citizen and become a damn American.

We the USA had not been using the labor of the Europeans and we have greatly benefited from cheap Hispanic labor for years on the backs of so many Hispanic families.

Who pays for the FEMA camps? Are you proposing that people coming to America for a better life be put into FEMA camps for life? Or the educated ones come out and do what exactly? What industries will they take over and lower the wages for everyone in?

My roomates? Screw'em. When their ancestors came here, it was their "opportunity to survive," (per thread title) but now, they wanna deny that same opportunity to others just because the country of origin doesn't tickle their fancy.

Well, too bad. This should be their new home. That's what America is all about.


We have half a nation that are leaches that we have to pay for. You pay for these kids and I'll be for it. I'm already paying too much already

Read my post. I gave a solution for America. We've had enough. Illegals have overstayed their welcome. They need to move on. Or we will move them on. And I feel the way most Americans feel, not the way the polls say they feel.

Except that, EVERYONE (or damn near everyone) DID choose to do those things and now deny doing so.

No they didn't. Politicians on both sides of the fence maed the call. Most regular people like you and me did not get to decide.

Now quit deflecting and answer the questions on how your plan of opening the borders will work. If you can't even attempt to answer the question then it tells me that you haven't really thought about what this would do to our country, our economy, etc.

It isn't just so easy to immigrate from a Central American country. In Costa Rica you have to pay about $400.00 to apply for a visit just to visit the USA an after your four month appointment you walk up to the window and a person looks at you and says DENIED. This happens daily to rich Costa Ricans. Poor people are really behind the eight ball.

Do you know anyone in the construction industry? You might want to ask them what the use of illegal labor has done to their wages and their job prospects.
