I've decided that anyone breaking the law to get here, DOESN'T BELONG HERE. If you can't come here legally, then you need to get your arses back to your home country and make the proper arrangements. I say that every single illegal immigrant and their kids need to be shipped back to their country with severe penalties if they are caught illegally re-entering.

This is getting ridiculous. These people and the H-1B visa Indians are displacing a helluva lot of Americans. No wonder unemployment figures are through the roof.
As you stated.

Let the pro illegal fans spout off their fading rhetoric---------it is blowing up in their faces big time.

And the ICE hammer continues to fall---------catching both illegals and their enablers.

I know alot of gun ho americans that wouldnt pass that citizenship test, these people dont have it eazy, theyre just trying to feed their families, guess what? like all of us are.
I'm sorry but millions of legal immigrants had no problem coming up with the money to enter legally. Why is it that illegals can come up with the cash to pay a smuggler to transport them accross the border but not for the applications? Could it be that the illegals would rather cheat than play by the rules?
That said lets address another issue. Why should the USA allow people of low means, unskilled to enter? Most countries have even more strict requirments to immigrate. Thailand requires a minimum of 50 Grand in a thai bank if you want a perm. visa. Australia is more strict than the USA also. So once again why should we make it easier, cheaper and less restrictive than other countries? We don't owe anyone a free ride nor should we grant it.
THe illegal issue is a simple issue quite honestly. They entered illegally. They should each and every one of them be deported for failure to obey our laws. They have proven themselves unworthy of residence by default.

If your job gets undercut by an illegal I hope you sing the same tune. Do you have a job? Do you pay taxes?
I am noticing more and more that many of the more insolent pro illegal posters on this Forum are/were either illegals themselves or the Anchor Baby children of the above.

Not wise for someone of Aztec, Mayan, etc. 'SOB' heritage to play the 'race card' against someone of Cherokee, Navajo, etc. background when it pertains to living here in the USA
