Incorrect:

We need to see those illegal immigrants (children or otherwise) deported post haste.

As for the US born Anchor Babies; either they go with legal friends/family members or they have to accompany their illegal immigrant parents back to the latter's homelands--------be them Irish or 'Hispanic' (or any other race/ethnicity).

Besides: with the crashing economy; more and more illegals will self deport anyway------no jobs tends to do that.

They were star students, Viers said later, excelling academically in English with dreams of contributing to society.
"I would much rather the illegals who are here to improve their educations and work to assimilate into American culture than us to shut the door in the face when they're trying," Viers said. "I'm one of the strongest supporters of illegal-immigration reform, but we have to have a balance."
It may not be the most popular thing, but it's the right thing," Viers said. "They are just as much Americans as you or I
propaganda? they give two ****s about being american and this is common.

I stand in total agreement with you on both points. The longer they remain here demanding free, instant everything while contributing little to nothing the more obvious it becomes.

The vast majority are Mexican nationals, it is possible that the second largest population is from S. America. I've read more than a few stories regarding the torture and inhumane treatment of illegal aliens from Guatemala at the hands of the hypocrits known as the Mexican government and its police.

Immoral and illegal?? You do realize we are talking about illegal aliens here don't you? I don't give a damn how they got here. They still should have no right to services that are for the citizens and legal residents of that state and/or county. Tell them to go back to their home country and ***** at them for their damn college education.

All you and the illegals do is breed resentment among the citizens of this country. Either way, there is going to be resentment and I much prefer for the damn illegals to have resentment than our citizens.

They most likely register with Individual Tax Identification Numbers specifically created for non-citizens/foreigners who donít have SS#s but file taxes in the US. Anyway, it is nice to see that people do in fact assimilate and try to better themselves.
They are illegal and it matters not how much the damn illegals assimilate. They have no right to be here in the first place.

How about a testimony from a poster who lives 20 min from PW county and reads the wash post everyday? Prince William's quality of life is really starting to improve no matter what the Washington Post and their bleeding-heart agenda says.

BS!!! I know and have seen plenty of poorer students that were not able to get into college, especially if they were c-d students, which by the way, they shouldn't be there anyway if they had that bad grades. The illegals have no right to be in this country. They should be mad at their parents for making them criminals.
