Exactly the longer they stay the more they will drain us. Jobs are getting harder and harder to find places are starting to lay off. The new walmart out here by us got new owners. Its a couple that just got their citizenship here. They are already cutting peoples jobs and are now making it so people have to work Christmas. They also fired and laid a bunch of people off and hired a bunch of low-wage workers for the night stock.

We cant afford to keep them here they are a drain on our economy. money is being spent on them that should be used on helping our homeless families and American children that dont have parents or are living in broken and abusive homes. Instead of helping out our own country the congress is more interested in helping out other countries and that put the American citizens in a rut. We have a government that doesnt care about its own people. It would be nice if we came first maybe then things would actually get done FOR us.


Oh yeah by the way IM BACK!!!!!!!! Missed yall.

This is such a great post. And look at what the politicians in TN are wanting to do:

Have any of you watched GANGLAND this really shows how gangs are in every state. If the send home the illegals we will still have to deal with there kids. They need to change the Anchor Baby Law.

Not, sure what our government thinks will happen when they have drug crazed youth non-speaking English terrorizing our streets. And to think they are trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens.

The anchor baby law, of course, is the malicious misinterpretation of the 14th amendment, sponsored by the current left wing amnesty progressive democrats in Congress, that allows pregnant illegal alien women to break in and have a jackpot baby that then qualifies said jackpot baby, which at that point is considered an American citizen, for 18 years of democratic welfare conditioning designed to promote future hispanic democratic voters. The current misinterpretation of the 14th amendment, which cranks out hispanic anchor crop after anchor crop of 300,000 plus democratic welfare conditioned hispanic future democratic voters, is working too well for the current 202 left wing amnesty progressive democrats in Congress, who are blocking all efforts to stop illegal immigration, to ever let the 14th amendment be changed.

I like when people start talking about how we are all human beings and how that justifies illegal immigration. That's my favorite excuse for why illegal immigrants have a 'right' to be here. "We're all human ..." Yea, tell that to my state's budget and my bank account.

How about this for good ole Conservative ideology: Land belongs to its conqueror. Spain took the land in the west of part of North America, called it theirs. Mexicans took the government , and called the land theirs. Then the Americans took the land at gun point and called it theirs, nevermind that the inhabitants did not really want them around. And the half of the country the Americans conquered didn't become part of the US, but the people that lived there were not real happy about losing half their country.

Now since these folk have no where near the military capability of regaining the lost half of their country, they figure to regain it by gunless conquest. And if the Americans cannot keep their land, they cannot keep it.

Now, ya'll want to say that the Mexicans coming into the country ain't good. But what do you think the Mexicans thought when 5 American armies entered their country and held their capital city for two years and took half the country with them when they left?

When one puts the shoe on the other foot, sometimes it hurts.

As Ben Franklin said at the close of the Constitutional Convention, "Ya'll got yourselves a country,,,,, if you can keep it"

Apparently the Americans are not keeping it.

That is history.

And where is Mexico's rage over losing Guatemala? Funny how one never hears about the 'reconquista' pertaining to that nation.

Besides: Mexico stole its land from Spain (1821) and do not overlook what the (White) Hispanics did to the Aztecs, etc. earlier.

Frankly: the USA did screw up in not taking all of what was Mexico in 1848.

As for Mexico taking over the USA: try again--------------they odds are many times greater that the northern states of Mx will devolve to US control instead-----------at those Mexicans' request since Mexico City is evidently unable to rein in the drug cartels. Google Juarez and blue helmets. The writing is on the wall.
