Why do liberals/open border people keep talking about immigrants as if there is some kind of problem with immigration (which there in my opinion there isn't) and lumping them together with illegal aliens while conservative separate legal and illegal using the correct terms of immigrants which they have little problems with v Illegal immigrates/aliens which the law says they are law breakers.

It is a fact illegals cost more to the American taxpayer then the amount they pay in taxes, such as schools and the health care system.
That Brazilian Mello lady's a Dream Act person; they CAN be deported.

Why is it that people feel that only the United States is wrong for enforcing our immigration laws?
I am quite certain that these illegals would want laws enforced if they were robbed, raped, cheated, or wrong was done to them.

Because the US is one of the easiest countries to get in to with the most benefits. I guess its no secret that North Korea is hard to get into....

"Law-abiding illegal immigrants" is an oxymoron. There is no such thing as a law-abiding illegal. If they were law-abiding they would already have left the country.

Why should we legalize the illegal aliens? The US takes in more than a million legal immigrants each year. What makes the illegals so special that they get to cut in line and skip the vetting process?

Many overstays skip the vetting process too with in country adjustment of status.

What she is doing is standing up for OTHER people so they can have the same opportunities that she had (and that you and I have).

Contrary to what you Trumpees would love to think, most of these people are not "rapists, murderers, and drug dealers", even though you have been brainwashed by a man with orange skin.
I don't want an illegal alien indoctrinating my child. I don't care if she is a "dreamer." These people brainwash the youth of this country and have been for a couple of generations and what did we get? Snowflakes. All willing to give up their rights, my rights and your rights and tax dollars so these savages can be here illegally. These people drain the economy more than they contribute to it. No more illegal aliens, ni more anchor babies, no more dreamers. Like Martine Luther King said "I have a dream.....that this country can be free of illegal aliens and, liberals.

I totally agree. They may not have a police record but that doesn't mean they aren't rotten citizens. Go to the beach and watch them with there overweight wife and four kids while they gawk at your wife and every other women. Have you watched their TV shows. Can you leave the resorts in Mexico without a warning.

There may be a handful of good people but the trouble makers spoil the bunch.

“We grew up here,” said her friend, Diana Chavez, as she nodded, an immigrant from Mexico who moved to the U.S. in 2000. “We belong here. It’s important to let people know we’re part of this nation and we work hard and pay taxes."

Immigrants rally in Atlanta: 'Not one more deportation' - LA Times

If you people are legal aliens: why are you protesting about maybe being arrested? I'm thinking your kind are ILLEGAL aliens, ALL Dream Act people are def illegals.
Exactly. Probably illegals. Otherwise they have nothing to fear. Illegals don't "belong here." And I doubt they "pay taxes."

No one who is a legal immigrant needs to fear being deported. That is a lie of the Democrat Party (known for their lies).

It must be odd how my parents who were LEGAL IMMIGRANTS never had to fear deportation or hold rallies. They came here legally, worked hard and then became American citizens. No immigration reform was needed. Funny how that works well when you do things legally, wait your turn, and don't sneak across a border thinking you're special.
