Sucks to be illegal.

Well, THAT'S bit of good news! And as it should be! Illegals should have never felt "safe" living here.

Sounds like a big ole Boo Hoo to me!

Notice, no mention as to how much they stole during their three year illegal visit.

Gee what a shame. A criminal feeling nervous about being caught breaking the law.

"Self deportation" I have heard of day laborers marching to the capital, picketting business who complain about their loitering and chanting "we can do it in Spanish. I have heard of illegal workers and their supporters going on strike to teach Americans a lesson. I have even heard of illegal immigrants publically voicing they have a right to be here in the U.S. because they are good workers and have high numbers, but "self deportation"? Now that's funny. Who would consider such a thing when the U. S. is rewarding illegal immigration with benefits like free medical/dental, food stamps, welfare, other social services, tax free wages, free education in Spanish and immediate citizenship for all babies born to illegal immigrants on U.S. soil?

It's not impossible to imagine you wouldn't be able to make unfounded accusations on a public forum if the ACLU hadn't worked to protect your rights to free speech.

Can't help but notice how the bleeding-heart "journalist" who wrote this piece went out of his way to drum up sympathy for the lawbreakers.

"Awww, poor widdle eemigrants...and it's almost Christmas...who are we to insist they go home...we're such a cruel, heartless country full of bigots...we're not being sensitive enough...we should feel ashamed...blah blah blah, *** *** ***..." Right, Tim Gaynor??

Man do I despise the mainstream media.

The Atheist Commie Lawyers' Union?!?! Puh-leeeze...

So you're telling us there was NO free speech in America from the time the Bill of Rights was adopted (1791) up until the ACLU came on the scene (1920) to "protect our rights"?!

LOL...

The ACLU had nothing to do with my right to free speech. I, and a million of other Army, Air Force, Marine, Navy and Coast Guard Veterans saw to that.
