I just don't understand why the pro-illegal crowd can't get this simple fact through their skulls. Instead, they have to be lazy and toss around the 'bigot' label when they encounter an argument they cannot rebut.
If their position had merit, they wouldn’t need to resort to baseless accusations of racism. But, since it doesn’t, that’s all they can do. After all, there is no defense for the indefensible.

Illegal is illegal, based on how they come and/or stay here from Mexico, Dominica, Ireland, India, or Nigeria...

The ´bigot´ label tends to be used when someone has said something about immigration in a lazy way, without getting the phraseology or general concept quite right...

The county isn't over-populated.

Are you worried about how many babies "we allow" citizens to have?

I am not worried about it.

Americans WILL decide if the USA has to many people, NOT Mexico, India, etc. so there words mean nothing.

Take away illegal aliens an there anchors; the birthrate in the USA is maybe 2 kids per woman.

Yeah, I guess we can always pave over more farmland to build more houses, and watch our cities get more and more congested.

What exactly is ¨laughable¨ about it?...

Didn´t I get a definition more correct, without anybody else picking up on it?...

I ask again whats the limit? because if we were to open the borders for unlimited immigration it will exceed what we can reasonably support. We aren't over populated? according to whom? So what do we allow 50 million 100 million?
Unemployment is over 9% already with no hope in sight.
An estimated 1 million homeless. No hope in sight.
I am worried about how many babies we have that the parents can't afford. The burdon always falls upon the tax payer. Lets face it its not the skilled and educated having 5 or 6 kids. Its the under educated and unskilled.

Our cities are much, much sparser than cities in Europe. Huge numbers of people could be added without paving ANY farmland.

You're not worried about how many babies WE have. You're worried about how many babies THEY have. And you're only worried about it if THEY have them HERE. If they stay over there, you suddenly don't care anymore.
