Yes, there are some talented and wonderful people who some how made it to America and are illegal aliens. They want what every one in the world wants- a better life.

BUT there is not room for everyone in the world who wants a better life and are living in poverty and want a part of the American Dream. We can not look at individual situations and make an exception because they did well in school or cry for the camera. There might be a billion people on earth who would do the same and cry for the camera and try to get us to make an emotional decision on a tough issue.

Agree?
And then they talk about how Americans are too lazy/unwilling to do the jobs the illegals do. They disparage Americans while painting illegals with halos and ignore all the harm the invaders do to American citizens.

This Country sad as it is, no longer cares about the plight of Americans and the American worker. If they did, we would come first before the need of all others. Especially law breakers.

Oh for pete sakes cry me a river. And what about the sad stories many Americans born in this Country could tell us about their families and their plight.

Ones who have lost jobs, companies closing down shop, a mom and pop store no more. A grave illness, not knowing where your next meal with come from for your family. Sorry I have no pity no matter the sob stories. Who will take our homeless in, and treat them with the dignity and respect that we treat illegals with.

Since this thread was started by a previously banned troll, with an intent to.. well, troll, I'm closing it.
