Default Barnidge: Immigration reform would be their dream come true

Dream on or wake up and go home, your choice.....

http://www.contracostatimes.com/colu...nclick_check=1

The redundant rhetoric of a select few have now fallen on deaf ears...

Anyone else see the ridiculousness of these pleas? "I'm a criminal, please reward and pay me". Shush, it's just too embarrassing for yourselves anymore...

Coming here and demanding everything sure beats working hard and working to improve your own country. The problem is, it's very selfish because the rest of the people back home are worse off, only the illegal and his extended family benefits by coming here, the rest worse off.

It would be better for them to go back and build the infrastructure and economy for their people back home. Or -- do they really expect that the entire country can just pack up and move to the USA?

Nothing worth attaining is easy but having the courage to do it rather than taking the easy way out that changes nothing in the long run is not akin to the human spirit. Changes have occured by courageous human beings throughout history that made this planet a better place. If not for them, where would we be today?

Considering that Mexico's per capita income is above $14K a year (with a lower cost of living); let them step up and help their bottom feeders AKA illegal aliens in the USA once such have been deported.

Well, that didn't take long.

Chicagonut, everything isn't as rosy as you make it sound. It sounds so Mickey Mouse of you, to just assume that they can go back there and their hard work will pay off. Everything is controlled by a vast caste-societal complex, there is no such thing as a "Mexican Dream". For some, the "easy way out", is better than starving to death, or living a life in extreme poverty.

ArizonaBear, you'd have to reform Mexico's system for that to happen. Again, a pipe-dream. You assume that Mexico's "haves" have a reason to care about their underclass.
