Illegal is illegal. Why is it so had to comprehend? Immigrants that play by the rules and respected our laws are more likely to assimilate. I am prejudiced against criminal and those that believe we are not entitled to a sovereign nation, they can go back home.

You donít need a ladder when you knock on the front door and wait to be welcomed in. It's not my standards, it's the law.

Wow - how absolute you are. Are you formally trained in these matters?

One would think that with all these experts on this forum - we would have a "more perfect union".

We would have a more "perfect union" if we didn't have to support the illegal aliens who slink across the borders.

DITTO CITIGIRL! Just a nice freakin' knock will do ya!

When I was 16, my idiot boyfriend decided to be "romantic" and climbed up to my second-story bedroom window with some flowers and a tape he had made for me. My dad busted in my bedroom with his pistol and said in a booming voice, "GET THE HE*L OUTTA MY HOUSE AND COME IN LIKE A REGULAR GENTLEMAN SHOULD, DURING THE DAY--AND THROUGH THE DOOR." (Needless to say, he broke up with me that weekend. )

Though I was mortified at the time, looking back now that I am 36, I am so glad my dad did that. It wasn't about him humiliating me or making me feel like crap, it was about him believing I deserved the utmost respect from any guy wanting my attention, and that if they truly cared about me, they wouldn't be creeping in my room at 2AM.

A lot like America!

Jammie: "More Perfect Union" Firstly, perfect is perfect & you can not get any more perfect. Stop our greedy fellow American businesses from demanding the cheap labor illegal aliens provide. That would probably do it for you. You think?

Torn2pieces: Go back to where ever your people come from-England, Poland or where ever. Is that what you are saying? And although you have no reason(s) to love an illegal, the latest stats say that, in the not to distant future, 1 out of 4 American caucasion families will have a Latin marry one of their children. You think? Now what? This is not a "make-fun-of Torn2pieces" matter, it's a real issue & whether funny or not, it's going to happen, whether you or I like it or not. I don't think that's funny, do you?

Good Luck & God Bless

If American business would not be so greedy & demand & require their "cheap labor" maybe that would end the immigration problem, You think?

They seem to bring down "dollar value" everywhere they live, is this what you are saying? If this appears to be a / or the problem to you, it is simply because the illegal alien has "figured out", a long time ago, that he was being abused by his American counter-part. The illegal alien simply chose the following: What's good for the goose is good for the gender. Unless he also is buying his own home & simultaneously is having to deal with these type of remarks that come from these types of people; he functions under this particular mentality: "You pretend to pay me, I pretend to work" & is only looking for the opportunity to abuse the American system, no more or no less then the American system is abusing him. You think?

One other thing, have you ever seen poor white Americans & the way they live? Or is it something all of you just refuse to acknowledge until someone brings it to your attentions. Please, stop being ridiculous. Isn't it obvious that there are alot more of these (poor white Americans) then illegal aliens? Think about it.

If after reading this message you realize that the business of throwing rocks
back & forth will never bring an end to these types of problems, maybe, you'll also realize that American greed & interest was what started this problem, & although it may seem to late to do anything about it, one thing is certain, throwing rocks will NEVER take care of this problem. You think?

I partially agree with what you said, if employers didn't hire them they wouldn't be here...............no one is going to jump a border to a place that shuns them and doesn't let them earn a living. I think we have to go after those that do provide employment to them, whether it's our neighbor or a big corporation doing it, also those that allow them to live with so many in a dwelling, most localities have occupancy quotas on record so reporting dwellings that have more then the allotted numbers will usually result in a nice fine for the landlord, who in turn may stop renting to them when it starts to cost him more than he makes off that rent.
