I am no doubt against illegal immigration. For obvious reasons and common sense.

I am also TEMPORARILY against legal immigration. We don't have enough jobs for people HERE let alone bringing more people here. Forget that. Let us stabilize first. Ban immigration for at least a good 15 years.

You've nailed them...how could you tell? Good detective work...(you 'read between the lines' pretty well).

Not only do MOST of these zealots fail to distinguish between 'legal' and 'illegal'; (they pretty much hate 'em ALL), a good number of them don't even like SMALL PUPPIES. (One guy I know doesn't even trust the GRANDCHILDREN of legal immigrants !)

I think you've nailed the 'anti-illegal' crowd pretty well. They REALLY hate everybody....Jews, joggers, artists, those who drink bottled water, the 'educated', Catholics, single Moms, the 'crazy', the 'crippled', blacks, those who can read, women, and vegetarians. Some of them hate EVERY state except Arizona. Their 'illegal' stance is just a cover....these folks are PLAINLY out of control....I know...I can tell...they don't fool me one bit.

Thanks for pointing this out...

We need to put a temporary moratorium on legal immigration until we can create more jobs. We don't have enough jobs for 15 million Americans and now the Dems are talking amnesty for 12 million illegals. Uh...are there 27 million available jobs somewhere in this country I don't know about? Then we keep bringing in more people, thus creating more competition for the unemployed American. What is going to happen to the unemployed when the government can't pay for anymore extensions? Let's get our own people back to work first.
