Same here. I don't think they're lazy, dirty, or bad people.

However, their presence here is a burden. Simple as.

I'm also in favor of ending work-based immigration for white collar professions.

At the DNC they allow an illegal alien to take the podium with no fear despite breaking the law and the liberal media eats it up.

Clinton is pandering to the illegal aliens and it shows who she is really for.

The brave patriot dies and the law breakers are held up to live a good life.

It is insane times we live in and it is sick.



Good post, and I agree.

Has anyone considered that allowing an illegal to speak at the DNC speaks to the state our country is in, ie laws are for some, not all? The DNC builds a 4 mile long, 8 ' tall fence around the convention center which blocks legal citizens from entering the facility yet the illegals are welcomed with cheers and open arms.
Pathetic.

You all are exactly right, those of us that work in Law Enforcement are very frustrated, and ashamed of the U.S.
To violate Federal Law and let illegal immigrants speak at a National Political Convention is a travesty. The people or party that had these guest speakers have no respect for the Laws of the United States! Furthermore; they will have Parents of U.S. Citizen criminals speak too, which is another travesty and another topic. This is slap in the face of our Local Police in the U.S. and shows lack of respect for the Police in the United States. I hope enough people, like myself, want a Sovereign Nation again! Make America Sovereign again should be Trump/Pence's new slogan!

I only wish ICE - Immigration & Customs Enforcement would have appeared and arrested the illegal immigrants on the scene. It's sad because of the current administration and Obama, ICE can't do their job, they are restricted from enforcing the Federal Laws now. ICE sure had the authority to come in there are arrest those illegals, but they are being held back from using their authority currently. It is a shame!


I will not watch the Democratic convention because they will have illegals, pro gay people , and criminal's parents speaking. I stand for everything they don't want.


I have hope we can return to be a Sovereign Nation soon!!
Nothing wrong with gay people. We are Americans too! It is hypocritical of an illegal child to talk about the supposed fear of having her parents deported on National TV and at an official DNC event. Couldn't be THAT scared, obviously.

title of this thread pretty much sums up what's wrong with our country.

They resent what they did legally, went to interviews, payed $1000-$2000 dollars, and waited for approval.

I don't think the legal immigrants will be voting for Clinton! And, the illegals can't vote. And, they better be sure to not allow the illegals to vote.
Unfortunately, I think that is precisely what they will do. Why else would they be fighting against voter ID laws so much?

I thought it was a disgrace and shut it off. It was an insult to the millions of immigrants that have come here legally. Including my own family that came from Ireland to Boston. I never see them mention anything, about legal iimmgrants. People that immediately needed to ft in and adjust to life here. People that had to wait their turn to come here.



A country that can't maintain its borders, and stoops to the level the DNC did. In my opinion doesn't care about its law abiding citizens at all.

Pathetic.

The Dems are the definition of a Hypocrite.


I saw a photo this morning on facebook from Mike Pence from the DNC that read " Attention All Delegates, photo ID is required for credential pick up, Please have photo ID out and ready"

Pence commented "If the Dems think that to require a photo ID to vote is racist, why do they require a ID to enter the convention?"

HYPOCRITES !


I think it is terrific that the Dems want to champion the rights of the little guy and give them a voice at the big table BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE REST OF US !

We have laws for a reason and the Dems seem to think nothing of bending or even breaking them.

The DNC willingly harbored an illegal alien at their convention. What will they do next bring a member of isis to the podium to let him tell us all how great islam is and how we are all infidels?
