Even if America is wealthy which we no longer are wealthy. That wealth belongs to Americans, should be used for Americans only.
Your entitlment mentality disgusts any hard working person.
It not only disgusts me but it makes me wonder what kind of drugs your shrink might have you on. You really do need to see a different doctor.

How can one pardon somebody for a crime they have not been convicted of?

Also, all I hear from these La Raza-type organizations is that they are not breaking any laws anyway...tough to pardon them if they are not even breaking the law...

And it's that mentality coupled with their arrogant attitudes that has turned a lot of the American people against illegals.

Anyone who knows our laws don't need to be told which ones are being broken.
On the other hand,,,those who ignore them do.

Your logic is way off.
I don't think they should use anyone's ID, here or Mexico. Is that your job or mine to take care of it? No, it is not our job and I have no plans to take the law in my hands to deal with it.

AMEN, Tinman.

The only way to appreciate a better life is to WORK FOR IT. Over the centuries, any form of a "Welfare Lifestyle" has proven to FAIL.

We have more than enough "handout hungry" citizens in this country without importing those from other countries.

You're correct, it's our govenment's job to take care of it...and they aren't doing it. So if we, the legal American citizens, want to call out not only the government on it's failure to protect the people it should but also the criminal activities (that are hurting us) of the illegals, that is not taking the law into our own hands. That is the American people exercising our rights.

Have you ever checked to find out what it would cost them to come here and the wait time?
I have heard up to 20 years, long time to wait to do it legally and the cost is very high too.
I'm not saying it is right how they go about it, but it does not change my feelings on the people themselves.
