Why would anyone want to encourage breaking the law?

But when they come here illegally, they broke the law.

Because it means more votes for the politicians who support them

It's probably from dumb pseudo-religious instinctual sentiments about helping the poor (whom Jesus said he was) worldwide.

This issue has nothing to do with hate and I for one am sick of hearing it. It's about our laws and the damage that illegal immigration does to our own citizens.
I think his point was that the GOP is espousing hatred toward the illegals while GOP business owners hire and profit from them. Democratic business owners do too, but there is not quite the same level of hypocrisy there. Dems are not leading the charge against the dreamers.

So what?


They BROKE our LAWS.


EVERY country has immigration laws.


FOLLOW the laws.


Apply for entry, get in line and wait your turn.


I KNOW, a terrible concept!


How about as we find them put them in YOUR HOUSE.
Where does this counterargument concerning putting them in our homes coming from? Nobody is advocating forcing anybody to take anyone into their homes.

It is most mainstream Republicans who want illegals gone, it's not hatred and they don't hire them. You are confusing GOP owned business people with mainstream Republicans and I have never heard the former expressing hatred towards them either. Wanting them deported as our laws state does not equate to hatred.

Can you tell the difference between one who is here legally and illegally?? I live amongst our hard working field workers and I can't.

I have had them in my home before!! And in time, there children will be like me.

100% American, working in an office for a fortune 500 company and being totally thankful my grandparents came to America when they did. :-)

So??? Then come over legally, then. Too poor to do it? Then that's Nieto's responsibility, not ours.

There are many problems with illegal invasion, but .. we're FULL!! I think every state in the nation is complaining about too much growth, and this crap can't keep up.

Yes. The US is completely full. And why do we want more immigrants and illegals heading for the work in our already overcrowded cities? US families are struggling to find affordable housing. Meanwhile, the illegals and new immigrants are willing to live in overcrowded conditions in expensive rentals.

I don't support DACA's because that only encourages making more of them.

And I also resent that illegals and newer immigrants don't bother to learn English. In the media, I've noticed that every illegal and parents of DACA's that are interviewed, always need a translator when they are interviewed in front of the camera. How can you live in this country for 20 years and not know how to speak English? Why do we want them driving on our roads?

SEND THEM ALL BACK!!!
