Do they not realise that Illegal means illegal and stop whinging about what they pay or how they are treated. Get to the back of the line and get your residency and then you can complain. Sneaking across the border does not give anyone the right to work, live or have a say in what goes on in America.

Nope, no green card. Citizen, person, whatever you know what I meant.

Thank you. I get sooo steamed up when i hear how bad the illegals have it in America. I also get annoyed at some people on here who tell me to go back to the UK if i give an opinion regarding things in the USA. America is an amazing country but is becoming bitter because of the illegal situation and health issues etc. Makes the normal American citizen feel impotent and in the hands of elitists who only worry about themselves. The UK is now completely saturated with illegals and immigrants from Eastern Europe. It is a time bomb waiting to go off. I hope this doesn't happen in America. To have to pay for gas before filling up because Illegals are filling up and running off is just the tip of the iceburg.

actually, barack obama voted to extend social security benefits to illegals, yet one more reason I would never vote for that mentally disturbed empty suit.

McCain isn't really much better regarding illegals. One reason I will be voting for someone other than McCain or Obama.

If you're not voting for either, you're better off not voting at all.

Wow so you are actually seeing it happen twice-both in the UK and here in America. That is really sad. You think more American would be taking notice as to what is going on in Europe.

I am so glad that you seem to have genuine concern for America's future. I wish more American's would get their heads out of their a$$ and do the same before it is too late.

I can't vote as i'm not a Citizen but i really feel for the American Citizen who now has the choice between "dumb and dumber". It is such a pity that there isn't a single candidate who inspires all of America. Maybe i'm lucky not to have to choose between Obama or McCain. My wife is American and she still doesn't kinow who she will vote for.
