Oh but surely, aren't the immigrants responsible for every little thing that goes wrong in your life? Come on now, let's hear the hate...

Did I say that? Have I ever said that? That answer would be no.
As to what I have said, in this thread is my disgust that someone would criticize a government agency that is supposed to uphold immigration laws, but do it in their native language! A bit, oh....ironic? Perhaps stupid would be a better word.

If you noticed, I wasn't quoting you, I quoted someone else.

I think you'll be hard pressed to find anyone on this forum who blames LEGAL immigrants for anything. Many of us are a byproduct of legal immigration.

Now, repeat after me.

Illegal immigrant: a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country's authorization.

Legal immigrant: a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence, who has fulfilled all of that country's requirements for legal residency.

Legal immigrant = good.
Illegal immigrant = bad

Do we understand the difference now between a person who obeys the law and a person who does not? I know it can be a difficult situation to differentiate, what with all of those who seek to justify criminal behavior by minimalizing its consequences, but you can do it if you try.
