I do care about many institutions going bankrupt, most are not do to the influx of Illegal aliens. People seem to forget that the entire United States are suffering a horrible economy. Figure out how much it is costing us a
day to continue the war in Iraq. If you wish to throw a stone, toss it at President Bush, this administration has been horrible, and when was the last time you heard him say he was going to do something about IMMIGRATION ? No one wants to touch that one period. If your government has no inclination to do something about immigration, there is no answer.
I pay taxes just like you and I don't like it either, but that goes along with being an American. I don't want the hospitals to go bankrupt,along with
school closing, banks folding up.

Don't come over here with the Democrat bashing. Bush's missing backbone on this issue is why it's gotten even more out of control and don't get me started on the Arnold, another Republican with no backbone. He won't even acknowledge that CA is millions of dollars in debt (and can't even get a budget passed) because of the illegal immigrants draining the economy. Should I name the other Republican states out of contol like Texas and Florida? Also, I haven't heard a lot of talk about Hispanic Americans living in fear, only a small few here and the radical pro-illegal groups.

Amen, wish I could rep you. The ridiculous "logic" of IA's and their cheerleaders never ceases to boggle the mind. I wonder if anyone is keeping track of the billions being spent to treat these invaders better than they deserve. The fact that they are being treated better than citizens simply serves as a reason for them to just keep on coming. Treating them with kid gloves is draining all of our resources in every way imaginable.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, if we started treating them like their respective governments treat them, I guarantee you we'd be illegal alien free.

My feelings on that segment will never change, and like I have said before, I will never turn them into the border patrol and if they make it through, more power to them.
Nice. And the legals they hurt dont matter .

What a silly question you know nothing is ever their fault. They're just here looking for a better life . . . . at the expense of the lives of far too many of our citizens.

Sigh I keep forgetting that I shouldn't care about legal citizens more than Illegals. As long as its not me getting hurt I shouldn't care.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what they think.

Like a few here in Texas have. And others have said they will if something isn't done.

Some fear check points might target illegals?
I would wager that some fear that DUI check points might target drunk drivers. I would imagine that it would be drunk drivers who are afraid.
make life as difficult as possible for illegals and force them to self deport...
