Then where did the term "illegal immigrant" come from if they are not criminals? Illegal immigrants also bring TONS of drugs and gangs into this country. The one that the border patrol agents shot (that the US gave amnesty to) was carrying hundreds of pds of drugs into this country. Are you telling me this is OK? And that is much worse then breaking into any home. If they are not criminals and they broke the law, I think that alot of people in jail would like to also be let off.

I am glad to know that being a hard worker makes it OK to break the law. Oh and have you looked at health care cost lately, that has alot wth illegals using services that they dont pay for.

i have a yes or no question for you:
Did an illegal break our laws by coming into the country illegally?

For everyone in the 'poor illegal aliens' crowd, here is a definition that should interest you - especially the example cited by the writers of the dictionary:

il·le·gal (ĭ-lē'gəl) Pronunciation Key
adj.

1. Prohibited by law.
2. Prohibited by official rules: an illegal pass in football.
3. Unacceptable to or not performable by a computer: an illegal operation.

n. An illegal immigrant.

1.Do you refer to all U.S. Citizens who break the law as "criminals?" It seems like you should, if you take such a strong stance against illegal immigration. They broke the law as well, in many cases their offense is much stronger than trespassing a border. I think you folks are taking an illegal immigrant's illegal crossing and turning it from on ant hill into a mountain of a federal felony.

2. Generalization, Stereotype, ignorant statement. There are Americans involved in meth labs and prostitution rings, does that mean all Americans do this? Your blowing up the problem to fit your stance.

3. You can sit there and whine, or be fortunate of what you have and what less fortunate people are receiving.

4. An illegal has broken the law, and should receive a fine or imprisonment. This is not the issue, the issue is the respect and political correctness towards an "illegal immigrant," "a person."

So that must be why your governor is a republican then?

Wow.. Never knew, they should just abolish part lines because republican means democrat now.

Yes, many of them made quite a bit less.

Then maybe the Mexican government ought to get its corrupt, socialist head out of its ***, and enact policies that allow for job growth and economic prosperity in Mexico!

Then the Mexican poor would be productive, happy and have no need to sneak into the U.S. anymore.

There may be many that do. But many will also conceal that fact, if pressed in a situation that might compromise their precarious status. Such deceptive behavior is not the hallmark of "decent" people.

I have no problem with that. So why don't they play by the same rules/laws that every other wave of immigrants to the U.S. had to play by? Fairness, anyone?

Nice!
I can not even begin to comment about this post. Is this person trying to tell us to act educated? I’m glad to see that the "20 Fckin years" that your mom has criminally been in the United States she found the time to teach you how to properly write. "Some sort of ID" did she show them her subway card? What are we suppose to "GO READ"? I know what we can read...the law that states your mom is a fugitive for illegally entering the United States. It must be nice to be a fugitive for 20 years and still be able to become a citizen.

This is a book that I believe you need...desperately need
