You missed the point of course. Yes, we already have enough of our own homegrown citizen criminals so we don't need to add illegal alien criminals to the mix.

I stand by what I stated: virtually anything an illegal alien does in the USA is a Felony. Such acts may be misdemeanors at most for a US citizen or green card holder. Needless to say: said illegals need to be punished severely up to an including seizing all of their assets prior to deportation. Besides: getting caught a second time crossing into the USA illegally is a Felony unto itself.

That wasn't the point the OP was making at all! They were saying that illegals are horrible all around people!

I'm glad to know that you make the law.

And I was replying to you who made the remark that there are also citizen criminals. I wasn't replying to anyone else or their remarks.

More proof illegals are SAVAGES with no regard to human life.
And he was so drunk on Corona that after he started the fire he took a siesta up in his room in the same building.

And of course where's the NYC department of buildings? Bloomberg is a huge enabler and pretty much allows buildings over occupancy to further his pro-illegal alien agenda.
Okay, illegals are savages. The victims were in the country illegally. So, more proof that illegals are victims.

Last week an American shot and killed an illegal immigrant who was attending a birthday party of his 5 year old niece. He worked in the fields for minimum wage, dedicated his life to his family.

Should we say SAVAGE Americans?

When will people learn that there are violent criminals everywhere and that legal status has nothing to do with it. Statistics show that at least 1/4th of the US prison population are psychopaths. This mental illness does not descriminate gender, nationality or ethnic background.

Yes, we have our own home grown criminals but we we don't need to add illegal aliens to those numbers. Not saying that they are all violent criminals by any stretch at all but even if a thousand were those are crimes that could have been prevented if they weren't here illegally in the first place!

Chicagonut, I'll never understand the argument that goes, "some Americans are criminals/using social services, etc., too."

It doesn't matter that some Americans are criminals. Every single crime committed by someone here illegally in the country is one crime that shouldn't have been committed because that person should never have been here in the first place. I just do not understand why this is such a difficult concept. Of course, all groups have good and bad in them. That's not the point. The good and bad people of any group should be in their native country if they are not here legally.

Another voice of reason. Thanks!

The whole POINT of criminal and background checks run on LEGAL immigrants is to keep out foreign criminals. Why all the apologists for criminals who are here ILLEGALLY?
