I doubt they have a home and probably are milking the system, actually, program 8 and all. Nothing to lose situation. I bet they're also used to riding public transport with scabies and lice on the seats, so those brought on over the border in massive amounts (read up the recent news) will not be anything new.

This is another example of democracy by and for the corporations.
Agreed and it is by no means just San Diego. Both parties are selling out the middle class by giving all the high paying jobs to foreigners. It's disgraceful.

The American Indians lost the war, just as the Mexicans did after them. That means nothing now, nice try though.

The bullying of young, scared children in Murrieta was particularly disgusting and eerily reminiscent of the South in the 1950s or even Nazi Germany.
I had the same thoughts when I watched what happened. Scared the H out of me.

It's disgusting and pathetic that illegals get free healthcare while our veterans who fought wars for this country die waiting for treatment and are not taken care of. How about we spend money on our own citizens first?
Omg -- I actually agree with you.

Here we go with the same idiotic argument about racism. "It's white people!" Please. There are people of every race outraged about this. And it's ILLEGAL immigration, not immigration. You sound like a racist and the same as the dopey media that try to twist the issues.

They are far from lazy. They are doing what it takes to get a better life, even if it's still not a great life.
Another disingenuous post. They don't just take the "crap" jobs. Try actually doing some research or talking to someone that used to make a good living in the construction industry. The illegals have decimated that industry and driven down wages. People who used to make a good living can't now because of the illegals.

You talk about welfare and ignore the drain on resources the illegals cause. Hospitals, schools, social services. They are illegal and don't belong here.

Why were we so concerned about the Iraqui people a few years back and not these children today? The Iraq experience had a far more profound effect on taxes.

I blame them all. Reagan started this mess, Bush II was Vincente Fox's hand puppet and Obama welcomes the invasion.
