Usually, it is the Taxpayer who "gives" to cover the costs of education,incarceration, Health care and any other "services" that are made available to illegal aliens.

All of this occurs while they wave the flag of another country in my face and make their demands.........

Si Se Puede, My a$$ !

Agreed. But the US is increasingly slowly but surely becoming not the land of opportunity for illegal aliens.

What about the people waving those flags who were born here? They didn't risk anything.

I've actually never seen this before, and it was a nice read.

Default We need more Mexicans

There is a place where I’ve been told
Every street is paved with gold
And its just across the borderline
Moderator cut: shortened, copyright protection.

These are the lyrics to a song by Ry Cooder(played guitar on the Stones song “Sister Morphine”) and from the movie Borderline starring Jack Nicholson and Harvey Keitel. Download the song and rent the movie and check it out. You cannot help but be moved by this tale.

I am conservative. In some ways I am extremely conservative. But I “stand in solidarity” with the activists and liberals on this one.
I was born and raised in Texas and moved to Cali in 1965. I have had experience with Mexican and Hispanic people all my life. (Heck, the first girl I ever kissed was a Mexican girl.) I can say with complete confidence that they truly only want to come here and better their lives and their families’ lives.

We need these people here because they work their behinds off and they love their kids, and they will do the work that some of the laziest among us will not. And do it with a smile on their face and a song in their heart. This I know for an absolute fact.

Now sure, we need to keep out the crazies and the gangsters. And we need orderly and monitored immigration. But I say bring them in as many as want to come over.

I am sure the haters will come out to bash this post. And I understand their arguments. But they should walk a mile in my shoes first. Or better yet, walk for many weary miles in an illegal immigrant’s shoes.

That is all.
Goodnight and good luck.

Really? Not even 1 person born here who waves a flag? Not even 1 vet who was born here and went to war???? Not even 1 police officer, fireman,border patrol agent, not even 1 of these?
That said your argument is deeply flawed. Those people who were born here were born with the right to be here. Illegals however only demand rights they don't have.
