Um no, this administration has the worst record for deporting illegal aliens.

As it stands now, scores of people could be using your SSN right now but not your name with it. The SSA won't tell you about this. You only find out when the IRS comes after you for not filing tax returns on a job you never worked. We also need to put an end to the whole anchor baby/birth tourism baby fiasco.

We don't need to push for so-called "immigration reform". We need to take away the freebies and incentives plus secure the border.

As for this whole nonsense of declining birth rate---what do you want exactly? A country with 1 billion people and not enough potable water? You know, just like India.

At one time liberals were all about ZPG (zero population growth). They were very concerned about depleting resources. Now, they've done a 180 and want to overpopulate the country, which is very, very wrong.

With E-verify being the law of the land, many (if not most) employers won't be able to get away with hiring illegals. That should either end or seriously cut down on sleazy employers who deliberately hire cheap, exploitable, illegal labor.

I don't feel "culturally overwhelmed" when it comes to legal immigration. However, I think that it is insane to allow 1 million legal immigrants into this country on an annual basis. It's also insane to base this on chain migration.
All true points. We wouldn't feel culturally overwhelmed if we didn't have so many here both legally and illegally from one ethnic group. Diversity in our legal immigration numbers would end that feeling and also ending illegal immigration.

Mass emigration is the thing that is destroying (what used to be Great) Britain, but thanks to our Political Correct Governments, Labour and Conservative, we are growing by around 300,000 people a year on average. We now have 64million people living in the UK, (if we where the size of China the British population would shadow the Chinese!) and with a housing crisis here and the NHS starting to buckle, we cannot afford to carry on the way we are! So America and Canada alike have it good!

This is one of the dumbest things I've read on here. YOU wouldn't know the difference between a person from Honduras or a person from Nicaragua ! you probably think ALL "Mexican" look the same as well ! or all "Cubans" look the same, or look like "Mexicans".....or that Puerto Ricans aren't citizens. What a poor fool.
It's the truth. I'm of Irish family with the flaming red hair and freckles. 100 years ago I'd make damn sure to play DOWN my Irish heritage to avoid discrimination, an ass kicking or worse because we had a real bad rep. Sheesh!

This is the illegal immigration forum, not hate on Mexicans and/or Hispanics forum. Mexican/Hispanic is not a synonym for Illegal regardless of how much some of you would want that.

100 years ago, that might have been necessary. Sounds like to me, you'd rather all Hispanics would just shut themselves into the closet, like the gays, don't you? Well, guess what, welcome to 2014. Nobody should be forced to go back into the closet just because they're Hispanic

It's already happening; many "Hispanics" who wanna be "American" are starting to hide being that like by changing their names, speaking English ONLY and so on so they DON'T get lumped in with illegal aliens from LatAm.

No one is suggesting that Hispanics hide in a closet. All that is being said is that they must come here legally (as should all potential immigrants) and assimilate into our society. Also, those already here legally or are citizens of our country should take a stand against illegal immigration not be an advocate for it. That is a part of the assimilation process. This is what happens when our "immigration" numbers aren't diversified. Colonization occurs instead.
