I heard about this man, it was atrocious! Not only did he have a cognitive delay basically the mind of a child but they deported him all based on assumption~! I guess he was found roaming around! Can you imagine how awful it must have been for him? Not only were his personal rights violated but with his disability and in a foreign country, ugg makes me want to vomit..

This statement is inappropriate on so many levels, shame on you, you could have made your point w/out adding this.
And it is funny how these government hand-outs are only given to illegal immigrants! Right! Let us sweep under the carpet the reality that there many able bodied Americans who sit on their fat asses and collect a check every month, wouldn't want to bring this up!
What strikes a nerve is how all other social ills have taken a backseat since Immigration has become the latest topic to ***** about! I wonder sometimes if this was not an issue what other group of individuals would be on the chopping block! I think I have an idea....
Those Americans who abuse the system always asking for a hand-out
African Americans
Gays and ther continued demoralization of this country!
I wonder if some posters ever take a break from bashing and degrading others enough to enjoy life a little.
I don't see race when choosing friends, so whether one is black is irrelevant to me.

I support gay marriage.

Next question?

What strikes me are those bleeding-hearts, to whom illegal immigration is a non-issue, are angered by those who hold different opinions.

There will always be mistakes. These two examples you've provided are just that; mistakes.
Ignorance and mistakes are two different things. They could of easily went to this mans house and got his birth certificate. But "No, were never wrong".

*pet peeve*

It's "could have," not "could of."

So, are you claiming these weren't mistakes? Seems to me that ignorance can lead to mistakes. (Such as your ignorance of English grammar, as noted above, resulting in the mistake: "could of.")

lol! You took this too literal I was merely stating examples! Easy Tiger, you know nothing about my stance but I will say this I loathe hypocrites!
And as far as anger? I am actually smiling because we actually agree on something, everybody has an opinion, it does not make it right or wrong it is what it is.

It's not spelling. Your spelling was impeccable.

It was the word "ignorance" and the term "could of" that prompted my lesson. You're welcome.

Now, are you claiming that the examples are more than unfortunate mistakes? Are you claiming systemic abuse of rights?

This was an analogy genius, do I need to explain to you what that means?

That's right, we already have CITIZENS collecting welfare, you condone importing more welfare recipients, ones that aren't even citizens? That's brilliant!

Newsflash: THIS IS AN IMMIGRATION FORUM. THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE COME TO VENT THEIR FRUSTRATION ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. If what's being said bothers you so much, then why are you here reading it?????

I didn't realize it was time to play the assumption game some of us hold dearly in our hearts.

Thats DEFINITELY what its not. People have just turned it that way. This is an immigration forum where people come to discuss immigration in general, not just illegal immigration.
