One man emailed my church to do an ICE sweep after the "dia de la virgien de guadalupe" (day of the virgin mary). I was stunned..

It wasn't until the protests and walk outs and demands when I got really pissed off about it I was always irritated but not to the extent I am now.

I never have seen illegal Europeans speak against us, and there numbers are extremely small so it is hard to include them. But same should apply, go home and wait your turn. They have no excuse, I checked it out, it costs about 1500 to become a citizen. Those here for years have NO EXCUSE. If they can pay a smuggler, they can pay there way here legally.

South America as a whole is our neighbor, that is why there is more immigration from those countries. there is less immigration of europeans and asians because it is so far away.

good point!

some do pay.. they sneak over here, have some anchor kids, get on welfare, apply for citizenship, pay for it via Uncle welfare Sam.
Then some sneak over, steal a job, apply for citizenship, pay for it via stolen job.

You don't need to try to school me on the reasons, I already know. Both sides of my family are immigrants.

I do and I dislike any illegal no matter where they are from. BTW, the majority of illegals in this country happen to be from Mexico. Sorry to tell it like it is.

SO does that give everyone a free pass to be discriminatory or something?
Majority = Mexicans, means we have a right to single them out and lay our prejudices upon them.


I never understood why people repeat this comment, unless it is for that purpose alone.

In fact: I have never met an illegal from Europe that I was aware of.
I have met many illegals from Europe; Ireland, Britain all the way to Croatia. There are a lot of them in NYC and Miami.. definitely more on the East Coast.

Mach50 that is true, we had a freind from Poland who came here on a student visa in 1990. He got a college degree in the IT field and was making a very good income. In 2001 he flew home to Poland for Christmas like he had done for many years but since this was post 9/11 upon his return to Miami he was detained at customs for having a expired visa. He contacted my family and they put him back on a plane. We had to settle his affairs here since he had a home, car, personal property, and finances to attend to.

We of course didn't know he was here illegaly and came as a huge shock but what was amazing is how much money he had in stocks! He cashed everything out to the tune of $150,000 and didn't pay a dime in capital gain or income taxes!

Those assets were gotten illegally and should have been forfeited!!!
