It seems like a lot of these passionate anti-illegal are people that resent their own failures and try to blame it on illegals. Essentially, the "illegal immigrant" has become the boogeyman for people that are failures in life. Geez, I feel so threatened by someone who does not even speak English and has a 4th grade education. Irrational!
Since you are not the only person in this country, the fact that they have had no impact on your life means little to nothing. There are millions that they have impacted and most not in a good way. But, they have impacted your life, but you refuse to see it is all. You pay higher insurance rates because of illegals and other idiot drivers. You payer higher healthcare costs because of illegals and other welfare asswipes. You don't even realize that our resources are being used up faster because of illegals and over immigration to this country. YES, they have impacted you.

Eh Junky, save it bud. For some reason there are people out there that think we are making up the illegal immigration problem to be racists. Yep thats it, I am so racist that I think that LEGAL immigration is a good thing(once we get our house in order again). I mean, how dare I have a problem with people coming here illegally and stealing peoples identities and using up our resources so fast and tearing apart the hard work that the immigrants of the early 1900's put in to make us a great nation. Those people did it legally. They assimilated. They loved this country. You would never have seen another countries flag flying higher than the American flag. Yep we are racist.

I am not surprised with this militia mentality from people like him. Now that they realize that Obama is seeking openess and good relations with our neighbors, including a humane comprehensive amnesty, they are very anxious.

What about corporations who have broken the law, here and abroad, what about them? What about the impact that they have on a country when they break the law, and do so VIOLENTLY, by crowding out the population away from the land which feeds them, and forcing people to take low wage jobs because now, what else is left? What about killing any people who revolt from this treatment with protests. What about assassinations of leaders that try to remove the leechlike corporation from their midst. Oh yeah that's right- We don't look back we're moving forward.

Humane to the illegal criminals but not to the American citizen. BTW, you must be an illegal lover and as such have low morals.

If anything, my guess is he'd be more humane to his fellow citizens than you would.

I wish I had time to give you the long answer to this, but I must get back to work. So I will leave you with this: The article is full of purposeful ambiguities. It only cites welfare roles and does not even address the cost of educating their children and taking care of their medical needs. I dont know about your state, but my state spends $18,000 - $20,000 per pupil per year in the poorest school districts. This is where most of these children live and the tax burden is astronomical. Even the few who do pay taxes are not paying nearly enough to educate one of their children on a person per person basis.
The problem is the radicals/intolerants like you, only want to see your side of the equation, thanks god that most people in our country are "trainable" , and can think and reach conclussions.
