Have you ever heard of equal protection of the law?

Obviously not.

So if I happen to support illegal immigrants according to you I should pay more taxes?

If this is the case then I should not have to pay taxes for lets say the 100's of thousands of Anglo-Americans on welfare or the Iraq War.

You see, your open up a can of worms.

We don't pick and choose what our taxes goto, our elected officials do. That's why we elected them.

You should be proud that your taxes are going to improve the lives of todays young American citizens. I guess you have a problem with that.

You clearly don't see a difference between endorsing support to people here legally (welfare specifically for "Anglo"-Americans - again, it's all about race for you) and our country's foreign policy (which is neither here nor there, actually) vs. paying for people whose mere presence in our country is a crime.

Good idea but let's not be racist, let's say ANYONE who supports unlimited immigration be the first to be unemployed and give up their life saving to pay for their illegals.

No more taxpayer provided services. Let the pro-illegal and open borders crowd volunteer to provide the free education, free health care, and provide all that their beloved illegals need and want.

That would be a great compromise solution. Don't deport any illegal, or limit them from coming over the border by the tens of millions as long as the bleeding hearts keep chipping in from their own bank accounts for them.

Why shouldn't you pay for them? You want them, you pay for them. As for Americans, if you don't want to pay for Americans then you're free to return to your own homeland. Otherwise pay up.

And you just proved you're nothing but a racist because an American is an American. You should want to pay for any American - black or white or whatever because racial background isn't what's important.

We're talking about American citizens or foreigners here illegally in case you haven't realized. Not races.

Do you think it's time to start deporting all Hispanics, even the ones born here?

It's best not to assume "hispanics" are a monolith, and not to assume they all insist on very massive immigration in spite of very high unemployment rates in the USA.

Some hispanics like others believe that immigration should be orderly, fair, not all about unlimited cheap labor and desperate servants for everyone.

If you can read Spanish, it's interesting that Spanish speakers have similar discussions on this issue.
