A disgusting piece, but a piece nonetheless.

Can you comprehend that simple fact, or is that too much of a stretch for your pinhead? I'd really start telling you what a POS you are right now, but your own post proves my assertion without me having to say another word!

Wow, thats a whole lot of personal attacks, Guy, haha.


Anyways, my point is, where theres a will theres a way. Life ain't fair.
I agree, Americans who are qualified deserve to be hired before an illegal immigrant any day. But the problems there, and for your sake, you got to adapt instead of being a bitter government cheese eater.

You seem smart enough, Guy(at least smart enough to turn on a computer and register for city-data). If things were to get rough for your current job situation, whats stopping you from going back to school and getting a better trade?

I bet a person could chill their drink with what flows through your veins. You, amc, are the personification of hate.
It keeps me cool in the Cali heat.

What is stopping those illegals you love so much from going back home, their country of origin, and bettering themselves there instead of just taking from our country?

No, it is the fact that they are not a moral person in that they have no regard for our laws and no respect for the people of our country.

BTW, the employers should be tarred and feathered in my opinion.

Well take it up with them.

Easy as 123. Stop hiring illegals, they'll stop coming.

Its not about morals. Theres nothing immoral about crossing man-made lines to get a job, or to live in another country without documents.

Its against the law, and yeah, the law is there for a reason. But its not a moral issue.

I have nothing against illegal immigrants solely for being illegal immigrants. Its an issue that needs to be dealt with, but I'm not going to be angry and hate a group of people for what our own government has allowed, and for the employers doing the hiring.

It is a moral issue, especially when you know damn well that you just being in this country is causing the problems it does for the citizens here. Oh yeah, it damn well is a moral problem. I would never dream of going to a country illegally and then break any and all laws I wanted. In the first place Mexico is not starving.
