My feeling is the U.S. Government doesn't care about us, and this country isn't one of the best in the world after all.

And to run with your ball further: it would not hurt my feelings to see a modern, stable, affluent, intact Mexico as my neighbor.

FYI: those jobs that 'we don't want' are looking very good to unemployed Americans these days.

My feelings are negative. Ill-legal is ill-legal - not legal. I have the same feelings about my home when I think of the air I breathe day and night here in Alberhill Ranch, negative feelings about the FUGITIVE DUST (and more, what is in the dust) coming from Pacific Aggregrate/Pacific Clay owned by Castle & Cooke. I don't like what I don't know and these ill-legal people just like what's in my air are unknown and could harm me. Ill-legals should be booted out of our country, and sent far away so they never come back.......

Right....

any unemployed person can walk onto a farm and pick fruit - they get paid by the basketful that they pick. Your average unemployed dropout can stop by...but they never do. It's incredibly hard work. As long as there are crap jobs and people have a false sense of entitlement a 50k a year job there will always be the need for illegals. Face it: this has less to do with illegals and more to do with american greed and loathing hard work.

This topic is like beating a dead horse. Some of us are sick of hearing peoples ugly racist views. Many people who have such a stern opinion on this topic have not even been to a third world country, or traveled out of the U.S., or even have the ability to put themselves in other peoples shoes. We know what the issues are on this subject, and frankly its a moot point.
100% agree
