I'm not saying this is all perfect, but I'm pointing some things out to those forever bashing PEOPLE from other countries....and yes many are illegal and many live in our country all their life....I had a swedish friend who went back and forth, mostly lived in the U.S. and never got her citizenship and died here at 90something.

For that matter, I don't know if my italian and polish grandparents ever got citizenship.

They are all people trying to live.

Many americans drink and kill etc etc etc etc.....I won't buy into that one.

You think hispanics are the only people willing to pick food?

And if they pick food then we should just ignore the law?

Why yes, that IS what you think.

Some one repped me as being ignorant. I don't think so. Not as mean as so many here.

We have a lot of produce from Mexico and other points south and people from their countries pick their foods. No americans picking anywhere...just picking them up and eating..

You don't have actual information, an informed point, or even a reasonable argument based on emotion. You need to go back to the drawing board and come up with something if you want to be part of a discussion.

Our landscaper/gardner works around our bldg twice a week and does me favors and I will give him a little cash now and then, which he refuses but I push it in his pocket. He is the best person and never a complaint.

Then, just talking to my neighbor who has to be in a rehab facility now going on a month as she fell and broke her shoulder. Who do you think works around the clock in those facilities, people from so many parts of the world...doing so much dirty work that WE do not want to do. Cleaning up s**t, changing adult diapers, helping people walk....You want to do this kind of work?

Then there are a ones who are hired to clean houes, clean toilets, take care of children.

Stop and think about this all you spoiled americans and STOP the bashing. Be thankful when you spend your unemployment and welfare checks and spend your food stamps.
All what people?
any exceptions?


How does their government treat americans south of the border? Should be reciprocal, but it isn't.


So who has the bigger heart and the most compassion? the US


Of course the OP is baiting responses which then are charged with racism and xenophobia if they agree or disagree with the flaming ethnocentric rant and racist littany.

In the first minute she claims Texas was once Mexico and the border crossed her 9th generation American family. She has no clue about naturalization and thinks 9th generation immigrants is who Trump is speaking about.



The left knows who Trump was talking about.......yet, as you see above, the left uses a celebrity to enforce the wrong facts of history. After all, America didn't win the war or buy territory, America crossed the border of Mexico. Now Americans are in Mexico's territory, according to the Democrats.

Parts of the U.S. that were claimed by Mexico at any given point were just seconds if it was all crammed into a 24 hour clock.

They soak up resources that could be used for American citizens that need help, education, and other resources. That's what I think about. And these are the decent people...

There is a legal way to do things. No one wants to deny them an opportunity to work and earn a living. However, there are not two sets of laws in this country.
Nothing more needs to be said.

Democrats say Republicans hate immagrants.




fact is that's not true at all.


Republicans like obeying the law and see the utter unfareness of a system that punishes those that follow the law, and rewards those that don't.


illegal immigration is the issue. NOT LEGAL.
in fact in ALL cases, republicans have called for a review of the process to make it easier and to include more people in LEGAL immigration processes.




Dems don't tell the truth about this.
