All i'm saying is if someone supports some legalization for some undocumented doesn't mean they are pro illegal immigration just as you say you are not anti immigrant but anti illegal. The options given in the poll implies that even if you want the borders closed off and illegal immigration stopped and supporting legalization for some undocumented makes one pro illegal immigration.

The only "thing" I, and millions of other Americans support is, for those here in this country to return to their countries of origin and then, let them apply to enter the United States legally.

When someone fights every argument with you are anti immigrant, or racist or bigot, yea it makes you pro illegal. And they dont deserve legalization. they are no better than those that waited the right way. And they are no better than my family which faced death to get here legally. So why should they be given the right to become a citizen when they do not respect our countries laws or people?

Exactly. They are not better than those who have been waiting the right way for years. Back of the line people.

IMO, if those here Illegally were allowed to stay and get residency, it would completely demean those immigrants who did it legally - it would, in effect, penalize those who chose to obey our laws.

I, for one, will not demean those efforts -

look, i really don't care what name pro-illegals or pro-legalizers want to call themselves. All I care is that if the pro-illegals get their way they will have just the same amount of blame as the illegals themselves of letting our country be damaged beyond repair by this illegal immigrant invasion.

And, it would anyones guess because MLK is dead and no one can ask him!

You should have had a third choice - "I don't know"
Yea.. I agree.. who cares? He was a civil rights figure. There is no argument because quite frankly, illegals have no rights. Per say..

Exactly.

Those who have been waiting patiently and have completed their paper work and all that --- trying to respect our laws should have second dibs for the jobs vacated by the lawbreakers -- right after American citizens.

Why should law-abiders be shut out --- because if amnesty is given and the big family chain migration gets rolling big-time, there will be no need for the other legal immigrants for many years.
