The ancestors of illegal immigrants were NOT born in the US. For this reason, their descendants (the illegals) are NOT American citizens.

ALL of our ancestors.....mine, my wife's, the illegals'....(and, I presume yours)....are dead now. And some of us, today, are U.S. citizens, and some of us are not. Those who are NOT, can apply to become so, legally. But illegal entry does not make one a 'citizen'. He may be a fine person, and a nice guy...but he's not an American citizen, and has no claim on the benefits of that position.

The reason I made his thread is because, looking ahead, if something isn't done, the amount of welfare dead-weights will eventually overwhelm us and drive us into bankruptcy. Is that something we really want?

I say drive them all out. I would welcome the first chance I got. I love to make Houston an American city again.

Futhermore, he retroactively strips citizenship from all descendants of illegals, and their children as well, and authorizes anyone to arrest and/or kill them should they be discovered.

If finally given the opportunity, would you yourself use force to finally drive the invaders and their spawn out of our land for good?
I would send my family overseas or across the border for their safety, and then take up arms against the illegitimate dictator who had seized control of my homeland. I would fight until dead or until the constitution and system of government created by the founding fathers was restored. It would be every patriotic American's duty to do the same thing.

Naturally I would ignore any edicts from the illegitimate dictator.

What an easy question!

Oh..so are you planning on driving out the poor whites and blacks who make up the majority of the welfare recipients in this country?

It's just further proof that Americans vote with their hearts and not their minds. It's all about image. You like the good ole boy rancher from Midland, TX so he can do no wrong in your eyes
Where you've been all this time, I have been trying to tell our friends in this forum that the migrant workers are here to strengthten our economy from the base, agriculture is still our number one economy sector, and with all the technology and manufacturing jobs leaving us, we better make sure that our agriculture is strong, we should tend a red carpet across the rio grande for our migrant workers......

I have a better idea: how about armed US military personnel with authority to use their weapons if someone crossing the Rio Grande refuses to stop when ordered to do so.

Maybe we can whack a few narcos as well.
