None of that makes any difference to the majority of people that have educated themselves on the financial, social and health consequences that illegal aliens bring to our country when they enter without authorization which is a criminal offense.

So, you mean that in your area, people like the cheap labor since the taxpayers subsidize their employees with public assistance for the anchors babies, as well as, Medicaid paying for medical bills while our own citizens go without. Is that what you are saying, that exploiting the illegals and having the taxpayers make up for the low wages paid by the employer is a great thing for your area. You say this without a conscience?

From many of the photos and news stories I have seen about Chicago, the state could better use the more than $3.5 billion a year they spend on illegal aliens: http://www.fairus.org/site/DocServer...Cost_Study.pdf

We have enough of our own criminals support, so we're sending the foreign ones back where they came from per the law.

So no one in Chicago cares about illegal immigration? Stats with a link please. It's not just about crime it's about the billions that illegals are costing us in taxes. That cheap labor isn't so cheap when you factor in the above. They also deplete job opportunities and reduce wages for Chicagoans and every other city/state in the country. Someone is only fooling themselves.

Didn't the slave owners say those same things in 1860 about wanting "cheap and consistent labor"? Sorry; ANYBODY who knowingly hires an illegal alien needs to be punished. Period.

It doesn't look like everyone in Chicago supports illegal aliens bombarding their city:

Chicago outraged by Emanuel invitation to Illegal Immigrants

Who wouldn't want these illegal aliens in their city? Criminal Illegal Immigrant Gangs Infest U.S.

The illegal aliens in Chicago might be lovely -- but they still should have come here legally.

Gee, I think I'll go out and break some laws since our government apparently isn't interested in enforcing them!

So both Hillary and Sanders are just going to continue with Obama's hands off policy on most illegal aliens? Why any sensible American would vote for them is beyond me.
and so would republicans...
Listen, if they haven't done anything about it to this point in time, do you really believe they will

Remember all the Republican candidates booed Trump in the very beginning b/c of what he said he was going to do....
Now they're parroting him, just to get elected....

When 911 happened, I thought, "well, at least now they will build a fence and close off our borders, if anything good will come out of this" The American people didn't demand it be done? I couldn't believe how passive everyone was, and Bush certainly didn't do anything about it?

What he did was put the Bin Laden family who was here visiting on Air Force one and flew them back to Saudi...

So, #1. as far as I'm concerned all our politicians are responsible for any further attacks on us
and #2. Do you honestly believe that they are going to do something about it?
They will not....they are selling us all down the river to get elected....

Just another one of his many lies. Granting all Illegals amnesty is tantamount to the US losing its Sovereignty. It renders our nation no longer a nation.

Exactly.

That's why Trump is the ONLY acceptable candidate.

Indeed.

It bears pointing out that if Obama had his way, another six million illegals would be given legal status.

It is a slap in the face to all the people who took the time, money, and effort (and sometimes anguish) immigrating legally. It is a complicated process and takes months and TONS of paperwork and about a solid $2000 and that's just for a spouse. What are you saying to legal immigrants when you enter illegally and then demand that you be given amnesty? Why shouldn't you have to pay the fees, file the paperwork, have your background checks and medical exams and vaccinations etc. like everyone else?
