There is a widespread perception that illegal immigrants– primarily from Mexico – are decent, hardworking people and we should give them a break. Many illegals no doubt view themselves this way. They are wrong. Every person who walks across the U.S. border in an attempt to gain the benefits of U.S. residency or citizenship without paying the price of legal entry is a thief. He has stolen the most valuable commodity that any of us possess – our birthright and identity as American citizens.

Not only has the illegal stolen the identity of native-born Americans, he has stolen the good name of the legal immigrants who daily help to build this nation in the tradition of all Americans – for we are all immigrants. The difference is that whether our families immigrated while standing on the deck of the Mayflower, or by trudging past immigration officers on Ellis Island – our families paid the price being asked of those who wanted to become Americans.

Illegals chose not to pay that price. Instead, they saw U.S. citizenship sitting on the shelf, tucked it underneath their coat, and walked out the door with it. Their thievery must be especially poignant to those who have invested their hopes, dreams, sweat and tears to pay for this great prize.

Why all illegals are thieves

Well..it took decades and thousands of ( 1 sided) SOB stories to convince our GOV, that Illegals were above our Laws.
All I can say is this.......within the next 6 months there wil be the biggest fight over "Illegal Immigration" this country has ever seen. And it will be heard. The voice of the people
Now a fight this big should say something to our elected officials

Have nothing against anyone wanting to come here to improve their life and the lives of their loved ones..................legally

Illegals are criminals. The media and liberals changed "illegal" immigrants to "undocumented" workers etc to help camo the fact they are ILLEGALS.

They broke the law just by being here in the way that they are. Therefore ALL of them are criminals

Sorry, High Springs . . .

The mere fact the Illegals had absolutely no respect for our Immigration Laws as well as our Border Patrol Authorities while entering this country speaks volumes for their ethics and character!

I do think that most illegal immigrants don't really appreciate this country. They usually pride themselves for their country that they left and criticize all the Americans. It doesn't really make sense???? If I were to flee from this country with similiar measures as they risk you better bet your bottom that I wouldn't be putting down the place I chose to flee to. Why would you ever leave in the first place if it were so great???!!!

Most folks do not know this.. but,
being here.. caught here illegally is a misdemeanor but,
the ACT of entering our country illegally in itself is a felony.

Not only can they be deported under Immigration and Nationality Act provisions for breaking the law, but a great many of them could also be prosecuted for illegally entering the country under 18 U.S. Code Section 1325.

Laws against harboring illegal aliens have been on the books for decades. Of course, they have been unenforced, but they’re there.
House Immigration Reform Caucus, H.R. 4437, the "Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005" was approved by the House of Representatives on December 16, 2005.

It is also a felony to harbor any illegal... weather they are related to you or not.

Ice will now start to investigate those who are committing a felony by harboring...
weather it's a business, friend, relative, or other.

The laws are there folks.. we just need to start using them.
