I think the real question begs to be answered. Why do some people feel that it s acceptable for people to enter the USA Illegally and put americans out of work?
I have heard the excuses. They come from a terrible country.
They just want a better life. They do it for their families etc.
One answer works for all the above. Not our problem, not our concern. Our concern, our focus should be on Americans and how do we protect them.

All the more reason to eliminate birthright citizenship unless at least one parent is here legally.

LOL High School and college kids. Is there an answer they don't have? Adults still hanging on the parental teat are another issue all together. Well they are just well you know losers.

john i read your profile its pretty blank.jes trying to figure out where you are coming from, im guessing. but we dont have slave wages john
that is why they come here. there are some people that would not work here no matter what the wage and benefit package. i know lots of them. the thing is the illegals got work ethic that is why DC did this under the table NAFTA with los pinos for last 30 years but they ran outa work ethic all they got now is gang bangers they dont want in mexico so they come here. that is why homocide convictions are down 30%, no DNA data base on mexican people. but that is guna change soon.
the bad news they wont just track mexicans they are guna track everybody you and me too.

I think I can live with that. As a vet my finger prints are on file. It would be nice if every citizen had to surrender the prints as well. That would make catching bad guys a lot easier. LOL

We have a word for people that sneak in and take these services they aren't entitled too.

It's called a thief.

Uhmmmm I ah uhmmm have been arrested once but wasn't finger printed for it. The chief of police's son through an M-80 out of his car window and it hit my car. I chased him down and put the boots to him. It would seem the Chief didn't appreciate me using a firm hand on his punk son.
$300.00 fine disorderly conduct. No regrets I paid the fine. The year was 1986. The day was July 4....
