Maria Ruis sat in the shade cradling her 1-year-old disabled daughter, Gracie, Sunday afternoon before marching in favor of immigration reform.

Ruis, a restaurant manager and a housekeeper, said the United States is the only place where Gracie, who has Down syndrome, can receive proper medical care.

Insolent losers.

I wonder if any of them would care to perhaps rally past an employment center.

They need to go home and rally. After all, that's what brave people who love their country as much as they profess to would do.

Oops, my bad, the word "brave" disappears from their vocabulary when they cross back over to their side of the border.

In fact, most undocumented immigrants are good, law-abiding residents of the U.S., said many requesting that President Barack Obama honor his campaign promise to reform immigration as soon as possible.
This “undocumented” immigrant BS needs to stop. There is no such thing as an undocumented immigrant. If you lack proper documentation, you are ILLEGAL.

Yes, law-abiding people generally ignore laws, cheat, and steal.

Agreed. Every single one of them are "documented" somewhere, just not in the US. To continue referring to them as undocumented is simply disingenuous. The majority of them have so many identifications, they've forgotten their birth name.

They're only doing it because they're poor and because their own governments don't care about them.

What are those illegals supposed to do? Demand that their own government find ways to improve their own country? Isn't that sort of thinking wrong?

Silly me; we certainly can’t expect them to demand anything from their countries. After all, isn’t that the purpose of the US? Aren’t we supposed to be the dumping ground for the world’s poor and criminal elements?

Wrong country. They need to learn how to band together and get social attention and government help from Mexico.
