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.

Will you stop with the violins? We have Americans that are already HERE that need to live, make a wage, provide for their family. If they love America so much BECOME A CITIZEN!!! Don't break our laws and expect us to be welcoming.....We cannot afford it.....How many mouths can we feed? There is only so much space in the USA, we cannot invite the whole world.


If I moved to another country I would expect to abide by their laws & if I loved it there enough to stay I would become a citizen....Its that simple....Quit making excuses for people. you cannot want more for them than they want for themselves

If you moved to Japan or China would you expect them to change their language for you? My grandparents came here and couldn't wait to speak English. Its part of integrating into the country.

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.

Only 2% of illegals are picking crops and for those jobs there are unlimited visas for legal, foreign workers. It's not a career job for an American and is only seasonal work. Who do you think were doing the rest of the blue-collared jobs such as construction, landscaping, hotel and restaurant work, etc. for a fair wage before millions of cheap, illegal aliens flooded our border? So your claims that Americans won't do those kinds of jobs is utter BS!


You need to stop bashing Americans and stop defending law breakers. As for welfare usage illegals cost us $113 billion a year and then send billions back to their homelands not spent in our economy. -

OP I have a question for you.....All of this sympathy for illegal immigrants, don't you feel that it is unfair for the people who come here and become citizens LEGALY? It seems unfair to think that we should treat someone who abides by the law the same as someone who ignores it and wants all the perks of living in our country without making the commitment to become a citizen. How about some sympathy and what is the incentive to do it the RIGHT way if you can just come here and stay a lifetime with no consequence???

The overwhelming theme seems to be everyone loves legal immigrants but when Congress wants to talk immigration reform then all you guys flip your lid.

It's not reform it's amnesty and that is about rewarding illegal aliens for violating our immigration laws not legal immigrants. The former has broken the law the latter has not. Legal immigrants don't need amnesty so why are you even mentioning them?


Our illegal alien population has at least quadrupled since the last amnesty. It has reached critical mass now and it's not just white people losing their jobs to them. They are now costing us $113 billion a year. When does this BS end?

I used to do this work. In fact, did it for many years.

If he's here illegally, he's a criminal. It matters not how good he is at his job.

Oh, so you're not an American. Are you here illegally also?

We have laws. They are to be respected and enforced. Illegals should be deported. Period!
