Obama wants to give these illegals amnesty... he says 12 million, but it's
more like 20 million. Whats to prevent another shamnesty down the road?
And then another? How about NOT allowing them to enter illegally in the first place!
Sure.. when they first sneak over, they work in the fields. But after a few years, they
get fake id's.. learn some english.. than start taking factory jobs, jobs away from
American college students who count on those summer jobs, construction jobs. They
have been caught working state, city, and county jobs using fake or stolen id's.
Yes.. these companies should not hire illegals to save $$'s, but it's like dangling
candy in front of children.. they know they shouldn't. Take the lure of cheaper labor
away to begin with by not letting them in sneak over from the start. Amnesty will
NEVER ever fix this problem.. we all know this. Obama says we can't deport them all.
Well, maybe not... but stopping them getting here is the FIRST thing that needs to
be done, so why doesn't that seem to sink in with obama and others? We can deport
them... it will take awhile, but also as time goes by and we inlarge the forces needed
to combat deportation... many will just give up and self-deport. Amnesty is NOT
the answer. Look where the first one got us. If we can bail out wallstreet.. we sure in
the he$$ can finish the fence! You want to see crime drop... finish the fence and deport.
You want to see better schools for less tax dollars, you want programs brought back that
had to be cancelled because the tax dollars went to pay for illegals.. finish the fence and
deport. The jobs that Americans are losing each year to an illegal alone.. should be
enough to wake up our politicians! Allowing these illegals to stay just because they now
have kids is wrong. They know what they are doing. That's like not sending a criminal to
prison because he/she has kids that need them. They should have thought about that
before they did the crime. Illegals KNOW how to work the system... they have got real
good at it... why should we forfeit everything so a criminal can gain....

True to form, they included a picture of an innocent child waiting for word of his mom. This was intended to tug at our heartstrings, and elicit sympathy for these poor illegal aliens who are ‘forced’ to work illegally in our country. Why, oh why, are these people being mercilessly persecuted?

Within a day, all of the women will be released from custody wearing their ‘humiliating’ ankle bracelets. Legal citizens currently incarcerated, if given the option of being released from jail (for humanitarian reasons) wearing an ankle bracelet, or remaining behind bars, would gladly choose the former. Oh, that’s right……..they must serve their sentences. After all, they DID commit a crime. Their children, or infirmed parents, don’t need them.

I'd rep you if it'd let me! Once again it shows in the leftist media how we as US citizens should feel empathy for criminals that would happily continue to take our jobs, tax money, and our very way of life. Note to illegals and their loving media: Stop trotting out your children whenever you get busted. Stand up and pay your price...you came knowing it could happen when you chose to break the law. Your children don't sway my oppinion on what you as illegals represent in the least.

I do feel sorry for the children caught in the middle but I have no sympathy for the parents. They knew that their presence in this country was illegal and that getting caught meant suffering the repercussions of their unlawful behavior. They chose to bring children into the mix.

Yep, personal responsibility sucks sometimes, doesn't it?
