Oh those poor illegals life was so hard for them. They only want a better life for their families. I just saw on the news how a mother of 5 works 5 full time jobs for pennies an hour while her children pick through garbage cans for food. Her poor husband was arrested and falsely accused of smuggling drugs accross the border and now they all face deportation. Hurry lets move her in to our church. Lets raise money for her husbands defence. After all the news is only allowed to report the facts.
All to common gullable people fall hook line and sinker for the its a victimless crime line.

As the woman in the video said-"If you don't like Sheriff Joe-then vote him out". Of course illegal aliens cannot "legally" vote. I guess burning Sheriff Joe in effigy or defacing a mural of our flag is the way they cast their "vote'.

\.....you dont know very much.

There are plenty of protests in Mexico. Taxi Drivers down there even blocked off an oil refinery protesting gas prices recently. WITHOUT getting gunned down.

They come to the United States for the jobs and better quality of life, plain and simple.


And we dont know how much of a coward you are yourself. You talk real big, but lifes a piece of cake for us on this forum.

You really get a kick out of the criminal acts that illegal immigrants do like identify theft and using fake ids to vote. Amc, Blacknight, SassyOne, and others, look at your shining star and you all thought we were making this stuff up. Folks like this hate America and relish thumbing their noses at our laws and you wonder why the rift is growing and will get worse.

The American voting laws are archaic and outdated

Let those insolent illegals keep it up; as of late----------without fail---------they are shooting themselves in their collective feet. Read that more and more Americans are getting pissed at them and are starting to ostricize those greedy losers who knowingly hire 'em over US citizens/green card holders.

You absolutely cannot. Fifty years ago, yes. Now? Mexico has some of the strictest immigration laws in the world.

The U.S. is the only industrialized country in the world which hands out birthright citizenship. Ireland and Canada were the last to dump it, although I understand Canada is backsliding.

The only reason the argument exists is due to misinterpretation of the original intent Fourteenth Amendment--you DO know what the Fourteenth Amendment is right? The iintent was to give citizenship to the children of African slaves, not to give automatic citizenship to the children of foreign nationals.

Allow me to quote Michigan Senator Jacob Howard, one of the Fourteenth Amendment's key authors. During the push for the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1866, Senator Howard explained that the citizenship clause, intended to ensure the rights of former slaves and their children, "would not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are the children of foreigners, aliens, or who belong to families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States..."
