The american people are fed up with no action from our leaders..If they wont get the job done..WE WILL. Soon the illegals will be dealing with some guns in their faces and being arrested by citizens doing the job 'that no one else wants to do" lol

How about you and the number of them you know? What does knowing 10 or 20 of them have to do with them expecting all the goodies that citizens get just because they are here?

So you are advocating committing illegals acts, en masse (""we"). Wouldn't that make you a criminal?

Please tell me, as an everyday citizen, how you would be able to distinguish an illegal immigrant from a legal immigrant, and how would you be able to prove it? Are you talking specifically about Mexicans? Would you be able to tell the difference between an illegal or legal immigrant from say, Sweden?

According to many of the posts in this forum, a lot of illegal immigrants are drug dealers, rapists and murderers. You must have they ability to pick them out as they drive down the street.

Call the FBI, quickly! They need your x-ray vision and mind-reading abilities fast! lol.

And you wonder why some people call individuals like you racist? What other opinion could one draw from this statement? It's insulting, racist and crude. Not to mention embarrassing, since many people who are 'against' illegal immigration are none of those things.

Let certain individuals call me 'racist'. Being there is NO Hispanic race----------such a label would NOT apply.

The cold reality is with the possible exception of Chile: all of Latin America is a basketcase----------and, Argentina is 97% White.

Needless to say: if said Latin American nations were socioeconomic powerhouses; their citizens would either be staying put or moving to stronger Spanish speaking nations---------NOT the English speaking USA. The proof is in the pudding.

This is absolutely correct - Saul Alinsky said it best: "Power is its own justification"

You are correct. They aren't entitled to anything but deportation. That said they sure do demand a lot more than that. A free pass for their immigration crimes, a free pass for their acts of fraud, a free pass for tax evasion, and a free head of line pass for a green card.
What do we really owe them??? Certainly none of the above.

Because our government allows them, because our local governments aid them and because everyone smiles in their face instead of telling them how they really feel out of fear of being viewed as racist.
