That's what I am saying - if we want to be colonized we should have a choice. I am not against any legal immigration. There are many that have followed our laws and entered legally. There is a middle age Pakistani woman that I work with that was very proud to go through the process and finally become an American - that is the way it should be. Any immigrant into our Country should be willing to accept our laws and customs - not bend us to their way. I am not saying that they should not be proud of where they came from - they should also attempt to embrace our lifestyle or show us the benefits of theirs.

We are one of the few countries that also support those that entered illegally. Most would quickly deport them back to their home country. This idea of issuing millions of green cards to people that never followed our laws should be an impeachable offence. The illegals that show up to receive the cards should be deported on the spot.

Yes, well, you might as well face the fact that "your" government apparently disagrees with you.

Forget immigration reform. Federal government reform is what's needed.

It's because they know it is an out and out lie to say that there are 9-11 million illegals in this country. Many people, for quite sometime, believe that the number is about 30 million.
