Anybody who thinks they can has never had to check people's papers. (Somebody ought to create a game show called "Pick the Illegal" and we could see how many people actually pick the right people.)

The ability to speak English IS NOT a good way to determine if someone is here legally or not since there are a zillion reasons why a non-English speaker can be here LEGALLY. A person can be here, legally working in the USA, if they have a work visa. They do not have to speak English. I had a Polish scientist who spoke about 10 words of English and he was here legally working!!
Well said, I agree....

Now, I've seen my real birth certificate around every now and again (because I've found it before packing to move). It's only a one sided document so it doesn't have any of that stuff on it either.
That is strange.. Maybe there is, or was when you were born, a different requirement for Vital Statistics on the birth certificate in the state where you were born. My certificate has all "The Vitals" on the reverse side, with only the hospital, Dr.'s name,etc. on the front..

Mine has no doctor's name on it either. It has a space that reads "Is Residence on a Farm?" and spaces to check yes or no.

That is definitely alot different than mine!!!

Why would that matter ??? Although, living on a farm would definitely not be a bad thing in my opinion !!!

Many illegal alliens justify the breaking of the law on financial reasons.
Does having financial problems justifies tax evasion?

What kills me about this justifing crap is there are alot of US citizens that are broke and for whatever reason rob a store or bank or commit other crimes, do they get the same justification as well?

Tax evasion is a domino effect of crossing the border illegally. They are not registered, therefore do not pay simple things such as healthcare and taxes.

I can attest to this. When summer comes around and I spend most my time out doors I get REALLY dark brown, and I can see people starring at me like I'm some kind of weirdo in a store. Then when I buy something and speak or something they're like huh?

Iroquis,

Your a cool guy, once you've got the respect mechanism down, you will bond better with those you don't agree with.
