My suggestion to anyone who wishes to aid the illegals would be to assist them in making the trip home. Perhaps purchase them a bus ticket, and provide a little spending money for the trip and the subsequent search for new lodging. The issue is not complex at all.
Amen to all that you have stated. What makes them think we owe them anything simply by virtue of accomplishing their goal of breaking and entering successfully? Mind boggling isn't it?

Compromise? The punishment for crime is clearly spelled out, why should there be a compromise? Does a bank robber when caught get the option of giving the money back and simply walking away?

Extremists? How so? If you consider it “extreme” behavior to want our laws enforced, and to oppose rewarding those who violate them; then I guess I am an extremist.

In the eyes of the La Raza types: you ain't 'brown'-----------if anything; despite you being a Black woman, said advocacy groups would all but call you a White supremacist.

Amazing how from the Bull Connor era to the Sheriff Joe one (less than 45 years) that American Blacks are now equated with the hated Anglos.

Today, yes.....that is, in fact, one definition of an 'extremist' (There are, of course, many OTHERS, depending upon who's doing the labeling)...but what you describe is definitely one of them.

Anymore: who cares?

Legal immigrants are welcome here.

Illegal aliens need to leave and take their minor age Anchors with them.

There can be no compromise on this. We need to enforce our laws, pure and simple. When Reagan tried a compromise, it blew up in our faces. Now the illegals KNOW that the U.S. speaks out of both sides of its mouth and they exploit our reticence in every way.

It entirely STINKS that illegal aliens have more powerful and connected lobbying groups than U.S. citizens do. This is what it's become. If a country starts to acquiesce to the demands of whoever cries "HATE!" and protests the loudest, then we're in big trouble.

Whats your agenda? Anytime anyone calls out the burden of illegals you call out its not their fault. You find an excuse every time for what they do.
For just once try to be honest and say it. Illegals are criminals, they need to be treated like criminals.
A compromise to me would be self deport and we let you keep your assets. make us deport you and we take everything to cover the cost.

I totally agree! As for your last sentence: I seriously think that just this issue is what got us into this whole mess to begin with... we too often give in to the loudest voices in too many aspects of our lives. What's that phrase? "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one."? I think somewhere someone twisted this and hasn't figured out how to untwist it.
