Agreed. I posted an article yesterday and the illegal had been here 11 YEARS and still needed an interpreter.

That seems to be the norm. I was shocked that this illegal could actually speak English. Generally, English-speaking illegals are DREAMies, such as some of the incognito posters here.

This guy believes he should be rewarded for having broken the laws.

Yep, their English is pretty decent. Their comprehension skills (or lack thereof) leave a hell of a lot to be desired though.

He claims to be an electrician. I'm sure there must be work he can do in his home country. He could probably start his own business with the money he has 'earned' here. However, I doubt he would be able to receive the freebies he receives here thanks to his anchor babies.

Agreed. They all seem to think that the "real laws" don't apply to them. I guess part of the lure of being an illegal alien in America is that there are no serious consequences for your crimes. If you're from SOB and deported, you can hop, skip and jump right on back.

I guess that would be too much to expect. Don’t forget, it’s stressful being illegal.
