When my wife got her British residency, she had to be in the UK two years before qualifying. We went to get her full Visa from the Immigration office in London and the guy who sorted out our papers couldn't speak English Properly. He said because we were two papers short of the full quota he would trat the visit as a "decline" and we would have to come back with the papers ( just proof of Clubs Societies she belonged to etc) I very nearly asked him how the hell he got in, but thought better of it. She got her full Visa on the next visit. Could you imagine a situation in America where what you do will be decided by an Illegal Immigrant?

You have some nerve making these statements. I do not feel sorry for immigrants on any level. We are all born into this world, with free will to choose what kind of choices we will make in life. These so called "illegal" immigrants are people who are choosing to enter and live in a country without doing the necessary legal steps to reap what they sow. So, as a result, the do reap what they sow. Yes, many of them do an honest days work, but they are not in our country honestly. i sure as heck don't think that Mexico would let Americans come in, work, live, and pay them social security if the americans refused to follow mexico's laws- we all now this!! Its a double standard. Everyone thinks that America is the land of obligated opportunity. And that everyone should have what they want. My grand parents were immigrants, who went through the proper legal steps to live and work in America. They follow the rules and laws of the country they live in. They assimilate, they made a life for themselves, and they are reaping the benefits of being an American because they truly are!! I have no sympathy for illegals who feel the system is unfair, because they are not even signing up to be an honest part of the American system. basically, follow the law and then you can have the right to complain. As far as who the states of the SW belong to? They belong to all people who live there. Again, its insecurity, lack of intelligence and small man syndrome of people complaining that US stole part of mexico. last time i checked, its was mexico's own demise, greed and lack of compassion for its citizens that lead to the loss of that land. And its much better off with the US now. maybe we should compare the countriesif Mexico is so great, why areinsane levels are all of its citizens fleeing to the US???? Last time I check Americans weren't racing over the border to live in Mexico for free. Check yourself. Its no wonder why some mexicans complain about the poor "illegal" immigrant. They don't want to work hard and do whats necessary- they are looking for and easy way out and they think america should just give it to them. We all have opportunity, its just making the decision to use your brain, research, and take the necessary opportunities to seize the opportunities. I welcome any people from any country- just respect the laws and abide by them in the country you live in! Simple.

i think this guy is a troll. and he probably isnt brown either. he said "la raza" in one of his other posts. only the anti-illegal crowd says that. others would say the name of an actual organization.

it sounds like he is jus tryin to start stuff, whether to incite more anit-iilegal sentiment here, or be funny, who knows.

but dont let this troll drag you under the bridge.

he has nothing real to say. actually a lot of you dont, but this guy especially. achury? what the hell is that?

Yes you can work here without being a citizen legally.
All you have to do is pay taxes. This is why amnesty is important.
Its not right to say no citizenship to those who contribute so much to America.


America should pay Mexico back taxes for CA-Texas and Arizona but since they do not amnesty is a step in right direction.

Why leave what actually is ours ? When amnesty comes within 2 to 3 years maybe you can leave back to Europe .

You are welcomed to stay but if uncomfortable than leave . There will be a new "guard" at the gate soon enough.

It is counterintuitive to assume that someone can sneak into the country, obtain a fake Social Security card and/or counterfeit birth certificate, obtain a driver license, falsify employment applications to illegally obtain work in the United States and then become a model citizen. In fact, these illegals become the unwitting pawns in a host of illegal activities that are only possible because they are illegally here in the first place.

Maybe he/she was thinking this when they came up with their name?

But you're right - does not pass the troll test and I hope someone notices soon.
