You must be behind the times as Lou Dobbs is now an illegal alien supporter. He flip flopped big time.

Now, you know lefties, we have countries, with borders, with laws that need to be respected. It's time to live in today and throw your left winger propaganda out the window. I believe we should adopt Mexico's stance on illegal immigration and round all the illegal immigrants up and boot their arse back over the border.
If you're going to go that route, they were still here first.

Now that I you understand that, you can go back to hating every non-WASP.

Being first doesn't mean squat. No more than the first owner of a house or a car does.

Then it shouldn't bother you about the immigrants.

Now, who's the illegal?!
an ilegal person is some one who is in the country illegally.if your family got here in 1532 then you are not an illegal person.didnt get the memo?humanity is full of killing and war and power survivel of the fittest.the american took some land the mexican took some land the brazilians took some land and it is their now and if they want to pass laws making people who dont belong there illegal then it is their right to do so.

My family came here legally from Poland, Croatia, and England. My ex's family is American Indian and are direct descendants of Sitting Bull.

Coming to the US as a legal immigrant (means you applied for & received the necessary paperwork) is not the same thing as someone that sneaks into the country illegally, which is in violation of US Federal Law.

For those of you that may not be familiar with the language of the US Federal law regarding illegal immigration, please see below:


Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the US Code, "Improper Entry by Alien" any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
  • Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or
  • Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
  • Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;

has committed a federal crime.

Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.


This has been US law since 1929.

The subject isn't immigrants it is illegal aliens and yes we and every other country in the world has the right to have immigration laws, enforcement of them and expect their soverieign borders respected. I fail to understand how you addressed my analogy with your comment above. Whoever owns the land, house or car today is what counts not who owned them prior to that.

Should let people know you added the Committied a federal crime...

the Code goes on to describe the penalty...You should state whats in the Code.

fines and imprisionment for 6 mos is a misdomeanor. Federal crime, ok...but it a misdormeanor. And first time offenders are seldom locked up, most time they are driven back cross the border.

So if you all want some Hard ass law, the federal law isnt it.

That's nice.

There was no unified country. There were no specific laws. And no race or country has cornered the market on cruelty or barbarism.
