Stop dancing around and answer my questions, please.
Sorry but all that I have read in here it seems the pro-illegal people only know how to dance around and out and out spin and twist things that we post. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad at the same time.

But you assumed a whole lot, wouldn't you say?

Anyways, all you can hope for is a tighter border, and immigration reform.
I pay taxes too. Its not just you, believe it or not. My life isn't miserable though. I dont blame any of my hardships on people who have it worse and are trying to make a better life for themselves. Not as many people are stealing benefits as you think.

You know that whole stereotype of 20 Mexicans sleeping in a house? You think they'd do that if they were al draining the system for welfare? The projects only charge like 20 bucks a month for a two bedroom.

This has been happening for decades ,as long as youve been alive (unless youre over 60).Has your life always been miserable?
I live in a ****ty neighborhood, I dont make a whole lot of money, I'm not getting a whole lot of money for school, you don't see me taking trips to Europe, and should I blame all of that on illegal immigrants?
The people who are maddest over this are the middle class people who are being affected the least by this.
Its acceptable if she struggles and makes it, and her kids grow up to be productive U.S. citizens, which has been the case for many generations.

What a load of BS!!! There was no assumption on her part, the fact is that this newborn child, conceived in another nation, is automatically a US citizen and entitles it's mother to cash in on the gravy train of benefits andreabeth listed. It takes no false Social Security numbers, no identity theft for this woman and her child to suck at the teat of the American taxpayer for the next 2 DECADES!!

The welfare cheats with their anchor babies don't live 20 to a house, that's done by the single men who've taken jobs from low-wage American workers.

Stay on subject. Is is alright for anyone anywhere in the world to come to the US whenever they please, have an anchor baby and basically have the American taxpayer subsidize them until the child reaches adulthood? If the fictitious border crossing pregnant illegal woman's child grows up and joins a gang, then we have wasted alot of money and benefits, haven't we?
If these individuals hold Americans in such low regard that they have no qualms about screwing us over with this scheme as long as they get their freebies, IMO these are hardly the kind of people we should be considering for citizenship. They have clearly demonstrated that they are unconcerned with the fact that other people end up paying the price for their behavior in many ways.

Manny, this is one of your best posts ever. I know that we often disagree, but I endorse this one 100%. Two thumbs up

I've been living in "sanctuary cities" (Miami, Boston, Madrid, New York) my whole entire life and have not experienced any substantial adverse effects of illegal immigration.

Busy bringing illegals into my beautiful "sanctuary city." Don't you remember that the few times per year I come down from my ivory tower I am a warrior for La Raza?

I'm sorry you've experienced the adverse effects of illegal immigration and I agree that I'm lucky to be in a position where low-skilled illegal immigrants will never compete for my job (because they'd need seven years of expensive, post-secondary education to be licensed and they'd need to be fluent in English in order to perform it). I won't dodge the fact that this DOES play into my view of illegal immigration. If I were personally being affected maybe I would feel differently.
