Immigration Reform 2010? – It appears as if the new hot topic for the American government may be immigration when the dust settles from the outcome of the vote to pass the health care reform bill. The topic has long been shrouded in controversy, and several controversial plans have been hatched to keep illegal immigrants from coming into the United States and taking jobs and money away from Americans. While some argue that they take the jobs that no one wants to do, others have said that during trying times those jobs should belong to the individuals who actually need them. The debate has raged on for quite some time, stretching back to the very beginning of the Bush Administration.

Things came to a head last week when the democratic party decided to pull the plug on an electric fence that was supposed to be placed along the border, costing the United States millions of dollars. While this plan was about as popular as the original Bush plan to place a fence along the entirety of the border, it is not clear if the Obama Administration currently has another plan in motion to ensure that illegal immigrants do not cross the Mexican American border into the United States.

Lawmakers seem poised to tackle this issue after the health care situation has been decided on. Depending on the outcome of the health care legislation, officials could start discussing immigration as early as next week. The vast majority of Americans, according to polls, feel that immigration is a huge hot button issue, but are for the most part, unsure about how they should tackle the issue. A vast majority of American’s are against the idea of placing a fence along the border to help ensure no one crosses the border without going through the proper channels.

  1. This is a great time to legalize our undocumented immigrants, something i really love about this bill is that it will act as a strain and it will filter criminals from harsd working family people, background check and taxes paid, what else do we want from this people, i mean, unless there is a racial issue going on on conservative minds, it could be, but please, be american, forget about skin colors or country of origin and start looking at peoples heart and lives, support immigration bill.

    • This would certainly help the economy. Think about all the fines that need to be paid, maybe they will stop digging out of our pockets the tax payers. Do you know how many people would love to go home to their countries, this would definitely help the airlines? They would need more workers to take on the work load. Think about the state with DMV and new drivers licenses. Even the banking system, they won’t have to hide their money under the mattress. Some people are so stupid they just keep thing about themselves. This is why the economy is in this position now. Stop being so greedy. We are all immigrants. None of us came from here. Some just happen to be the lucky one’s like myself.

    • I live here in Usa. Came from Europe. Work really hard for my money. I finished 2 university, but i had to start from the bottom. Dishwasher… now (after 4 years ) server at the restaurant. I came here with out english with out money. No family here. Really hard… usually guys work really hard girls just flirting around end got easy money. Not all!
      I Finished, english school, and study at the Collage now. I don’t get married like “everybody” else. Keep apply for new visa every year. So hard. I spend more than 3500$ per year for paperwork. I know so many illegal workers. They are really nice. Work for 6-8$ per hour. Not taking anybody’s job!

      • What the heck, dude? What do you mean by saying girls don’t work as hard? I am female. I’m a first generation European immigrant here too with no family here to rely on. Do you know how much I work??? I have two jobs and go to college full time in order to survive and eventually start a career. I am more than sure that you don’t have it any more difficult than I do.

      • WOW im a girl ok and i dont flirt with nobody and i dont have my papers plus i didnt marry anybody
        i been here since i was 12 dont judge like that..!!!!

  2. This, at least for me, is not a racism issue. I was unemployed in this, my country for nearly a year; my husband was unemployed for a year also (at different times); we found it difficult to find jobs. Everywhere we look we see people from different countries, though employed in jobs that possibly we could have had … are these immigrants legal – possibly; possibly not. If not, they certainly do not deserve health care for free; they do not deserve to have their children in our public schools that my husband and I are paying taxes for (which by the way we do NOT have children).

    In my opinion, they don’t deserve anything. They came here illegally … I understand that you have established yourselves here … but you have taken something that never really truly belonged to you in the first place. You knew of the proper channels; if you wanted to come here to work, I can respect that, but obtain a work VISA, and then go from there. I cannot go to another country and work and live without one (I checked into it when I was unemployed and when my husband was unemployed) … and it certainly would not be acceptable for me to go to that country and live there and not speak their language as well.

    • Anastasia: How illegal immigrants take social services that are paid from your taxes, if you dont work? … Go to California to pick the strawberry.

    • I am an illegal alien, my mother brought me to this country when I was just little girl; unfortunately, I didn’t know about any proper channels to come here. It was all a game to me. Now that I am older, I can understand your frustration and your reasons to say that I don’t deserve anything. I honestly don’t know why I have been so bless throughout my life! I graduated from HS and later got a chance to go to college where I received a bachelor’s degree in International Business. I know that God has blessed me because not many people like me get a chance to go to college. Some do not have the funds to pay from their own pocket college tuition. But who is to say what others deserved or not? It really doesn’t matter because God has everything under control. I think that we shouldn’t worry about how bad we have it down here and start being a little bit more concern about that day when we will have to give account of all our actions to God.

      • Thanks Paula for your great comment. I think many people don’t know what we have to go through to reach our goals and to provide a better way of living for our families. Thank you!

      • I can relate to you, my story is almost the same…my parents brough me here when I was 9 years old. I am a Certified Surgical Tech, however, I cannot work due to my immigration status. I is very sad, my mother went to Mexico six years ago and I have no seen any of my immediate family since then. I am currently married and have a son, my husband is on the same situation. We both work and we do pay taxes!!! I use my Itin number and get taxes taking out every pay period. And I know of others that also pay taxes. Taxes that go towards Social Securtiy and Medicare and that I will never collect even thou I have been paying them for 6 years.

        • sophie you are a liar! you say you cannot work due to immiigration status. But yet you claim you work and pay taxes?
          If you are not here legally you need to go back to your country. This goes for everyone, Americans do not go to your countries and work illegally, we do not insist other countries cater to us by learning English.
          You say you pay taxes toward Social Security and Medicare that you will never collect? Well that is what people who came here illegally, like you and your parents, have done to Americans by coming here in the first place. You and your illegal family and friends have used up Americans tax dollars collecting welfare that was not intended for you, and taking Americans jobs because you guys are willing to do the work for cheaper. Of course, this is not entirely your fault, us Americans should not have been so naive, letting illegals collect benefits because we felt sorry for them and as Americans, should have been looking out for eachother when it came to jobs rather than paying your people under the table for them to send the money back home to their wives and 10 kids or work under the table while collecting a welfare check. Of course you guys are willing to do the work cheaper because you all are collecting “free” money from the state. If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem. Now it is becoming apparent that the only thing to do is get rid of the problem. So, of course, you guys yell racism. We are not racist, just finally sick of catering to a plague of ungrateful users. I hope every last illegal immigrant is deported. If you work as you claim then you should not have a problem getting visa, and saving to buy your citizenship like any other immigrant from any other country has to do. I cant wait til all illegals are gone.

          • Colleen, you are so ignorant to the world of immigrants, it is funny. And you are not the only one. If people could just get a work VISA, they would. You think people want to come here illegally how they do? You’re wrong. You have no idea how dangerous it is to pass here illegally. You have no idea whatsoever. If all of the illegal immigrants go back to their countries, the only people that would be left in the US would be indians. Thats it. Who do you think you are? It doesn’t matter where you come from, the fact of the matter is that the US is one of the richest countries and its not because of the lazy unemployed people. Illegal immigrants have helped a lot with that. And it shouldn’t matter where you are from, why should someone have to suffer due to race. I have been to Mexico. And not to Cancun or wherever else people go to to vacation. I have been to the one of the poorest parts where most of these illegal immigrants come from. And let me tell you something, even the poorest people here don’t have to live like that. And it’s disgusting. And you wouldn’t last a minute there. Why should they have to? Its not right. Stop being racist and let them become legal so that there can be more jobs and more money in the US. Grow up.

          • RELAX! Collen you sound stressed…
            Yes, I do work, but not as a Surgical Tech (unfortunately). You sound very angry at the situation and I can understand that. However, some of your comments are irrational. HOw are is the goverment going to deport 11 million immigrants? Not all of us “illegal immigrants” collect welfare. Not all of us have 10 kids. My parents are no longer here, (I have not seen my mother in the last six years). I just don’t understand why all this hate! HOw about we get a chance to demonstrate we can contribute to this economy. I cannot get a visa because I came here illegally in the first place, you have to do that from your native country. You sound ignorant to a lot of issues we face as “illegal Immigrants”. America since the beginning of this nation has helped others, and I am grateful for that, why not help US!! In some of our countries there is poverty, no jobs, no way of creating a good life for our families, if you are born poor you will die poor even if you work and work all your life. Is that your problem? NO! Why all that hate?? This is why the world is full of wars, and violence. Instead of helping each other we have become selfish.

          • Colleen, let me tell you my story.
            My single mom was trying to raise us three kids. She did the best she could but we have to constantly borrow money just to eat. She tried her best to get here legally, but the embassy denied us several time, each time taking $100 dlls, which took her about 6 months to save up; that meant eating less, honey. She left us to come to the USA to work, we didn’t see her for years, but we got food on our table every day. When she left I was about 14…she missed my forming years. I continued going to school until one day I was almost kidnapped, so she decided it wasn’t safe for me anymore so she arrange I cross the border. It was awful, days without water, with thorns that sneak below your jeans and sting your skin with every step you take, not to mention the hunger. Border patrol caught us. I tried this 4 times, the 3rd time being detained for a week till my brother came to pick me up in Tijuana. I finally made it. I went to High School (my mom definitely paid taxes)graduated with honors and then…nothing, I couldn’t afford to go to college, so naturally I just worked. One thing about us is that we are very good workers, we show up on time and are very respectful of our bosses (something I see lacks, unfortunately, in many Americans)
            I met my dream boy when I was 17 and now we are married. I am 21. I never drive drunk, but I still fear I will get pulled over and get deported every single day of my life, do you know how that feels? My family left 3 years ago, haven’t seen them since (my grandma died, I didn’t get to say good-bye)Now I’m trying to be legal, which will cost me over $3000, but I am willing to pay it. I am very scared that I will get deported and never see my husband again (he is in the military)
            So you see, our lives are not the golden color you paint them to be. Thank God that you have the blessing of being born here, that you don’t have to worry about where are you going to be tomorrow, that you can drive, even a little recklessly without being afraid of more than a ticket, that nothing will separate you from your family if you don’t wish it…and above all, that you can live without fear.
            Please get to know us a little bit, you’ll see the truth, I promise you.

    • Anastasia,

      If obtaining a US Work Visa would be easy, I bet my life 1000% that people would not mind doing so. Don’t you think they know that entering the US that way would be much easier on them. Do you think they wanted and enjoy leaving in the shadows ??? But what you and americans don’t know is that the US Embassies are painfully corrupt. You go, you pay $100 for instance and get nothing, not even an explanation as to why you’re denied, EVEN if you show proof you have reasons to return. In most of the cases the consulars don’t even look at proofs. And guess what, the $100.00 is not returned not even a dime back; and remember, that might be a lot of money for those people. It’s a shame!!! Oh yeah, do it legally, but with whom?…those consulars are only after your money, go figure. And if you insist, the second time they take your money again and look you up in the computer and says, you’ve already been denied, must have been a good reason, the answer is NO. You have to wait years before again you gamble your luck. Oh yeah, do it the right way. Easy to say, close to impossible to do. Everybody fights for a better life, they know America is everybody’s nowadays, so, why keep paying the US Consulates to get nothing but mistreatment. American people should also be complaining about the money these US Embassies are “stealing” from the poor people around the world and then shatter their dreams. I am a US citizen, and I am white, but if I were in these illegal immigrants’ shoes, I would do exactly the same…”if you don’t want me, then too bad cause I want you, now deal with me”

      If you were to ask me it’s all our fault. We claim to be the best in the world with everyting and we can’t even keep a border secured, then we complain. The Emabassies are jokes, but we demand. We lose our jobs, but we blame. Enough already, these are tough times for everybody.

      • THIS A THE REALITY OF LIFE. PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING FOR BETTER ALTERNATIVES TO LIVING A BETTER LIFE. THIS IS THE WORLD THAT WE ARE LIVING IN. I HOPE A BILL COMES INTO PLAY TO SOLVE THIS SITUATION. PRES OBAMA IS A VERY INFLUENTIAL MAN. HE HAS THE POWER TO PERSUE A BILL THAT WOULD HELP THS COUNTRY GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AGAIN. BY GRANTING IMMIGRANTS WHO LIVE HERE THE RIGHT TO LIVE HERE LEGALLY WOULD BE GOOD FOR AMERICA. THAT MEANS LESS UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS, AND MORE DOCUMENTED FUND. NOW EVERY BODY WILL BE HAPPY. INCLUDING THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA. THE SONG SAYS “WE ARE THE WORLD WE ARE THE PEOPLE, WE ARE THE ONES TO MAKE A BRIGHTER DAY SO LETS START LIVING” . INDEED WE SHOULD START NOW BY MAKING A “CHANGE” FOR THE BETTER. BY HELPING THE MAN WHO IS WILLING TO WORK TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY A BETTER THAN IT ALREADY IS. GODS GREATEST GIFT FOR MANY IS AMERICA.

    • For your information there are several people that do pay taxes even though they don’t have a SS# they make up a number which they present to the employers and if they hired they will get taxes taken out (which is my case) I have had taken 6 years worth of social security and medicare…and I know I will never be able to collect that, which is Ok. I know that coming here illegally is wrong, but you can look to it in a human way. People come here because in their country there are no jobs and no help from the goverment at all. Is that your problem? NO But, this is a country of immigrants how about sharing the wealth? We have been here for years, we have been part of this ecomomy, nobobody seemed to say anything before the recession… so why don’t give us a chance to demonstrate that we can be productive to this country that we made our HOME.

      • Just the thing a user would say!! Share the wealth? What happened to working? You all expect hand outs and now that your “free” money is being threatened you claim how “american” you are. If you were a working “american” you would not be defending your tax dollars being leeched on. Before the recession you were still a problem, it is just now people are realizing what the real cost is of cheap labor. The only part you have played in our economy is consumption!!

    • Well Anastasia, What you and some other people fail to realize it that immigrants will do almost anything or take any pay amount to make end meet, While most people are to proud to accept such. Now if the government would realize that if they made those immigrants legal it would make a great difference in America because all the paper work that has to be filled would require fees which brings income and then they gotta travel home to visit their country, more income, people with special skills, they can open their own businesses…more income and will be able to create more jobs. People will go to school…more income… Shall I go on? So I think it is ridiculous people keep running their mouths complaining about immigrants taking all the jobs. That’s a lie. Immigrants are people too and so many people are separated from their family because it is so hard in their country. People please have a heart

    • something i learn in this years of bad economy is that if you lost your job, you have to get up, turn off the tv and look for another job, most people think that staying home they get a job or that next day they will have another job earning the same paycheck, if they find a job that pay them a couple of bucks less then they won’t take it, i know people that lost their jobs, some went out and got new jobs, some others stay home and well… they did not get a job, two of them took a whole year to get a new job, cause they were not looking for it, like anastisia,

  3. JUST AMEND THE 1986 IMMIGRATION CONTROL & REFORM ACT

    The administration had better take notice of the American people, specially in border states that have been invaded by illegal trespassers. That is not saying that a hundred percent of illegal alien families that have poured across our sovereignty fence line Millions of other law breakers have either thrown away their return airline tickets, or just let their entry visa expired to take up illegal residents here. None of this should be tolerated? If it was in my power I would implement Mexico’s strict immigration laws, which are–ENFORCED Unlike our country, that has been jettisoned by years of greed. Politicians have remained the lap-dogs of corporate welfare, even as they play lip-service to pacify the people who have urged physical enforcement through many Presidents. Unfortunately if Amnesty gets the votes, E-Verify, local police detainment, ICE raids and everything else in the enforcement arsenal, will become obsolete. Those already here can then bring in their extended family, which mean just calculating the numbers already here and it will at least triple.. And before the CIR is even signed millions more will try to to dodge detection and will become the next layers of illegal immigrants, who will bankrupt every state and county looking for free handouts. We need superior skilled workers, not people that end up in the welfare line or on church doorsteps. IF AMNESTY PASSES, FAMILY UNIFICATION WILL BRING INTO THIS COUNTRY IRREVERSIBLE MILLIONS MORE. SOMEWHERE IN ACCESS OF 60 TO 70 MILLION.

    America is in crisis mode, from the unceasing flow of destitute foreigners who have swamped the welfare system. Proponents keep repeating that their-ONLY-here to work, “Jobs Americans wont do..?” It’s proved to be a bitter lie.This has just been pure propaganda by just noting the sudden appearance of US citizens and residents for vacant jobs. Shown after the raids at meat packing plants in the hinterland. It’s been repeated time and again, that Americans cannot survive on the pittances that greedy businesses will pay illegal hiring.

    I don’t know how the Amnesty is going to go over should it pass, as out-of-work Americans might turn ugly. For sure all Democrats and Republics will be sacrificed, at the midterm and in November elections Any kind of pardon for people who ignored our laws, could cause unrest and even riots of millions of Americans, before they march on Washington. When 15 million Americans have lost their jobs with no ending in sight and cannot put food on the table for their kids and spouses it might cause massive protests The population are seething with anger over health care, an illegal US census, which enumerates illegal immigrants who should not even be here? Then we have this Amnesty travesty, that will give an absolutely free reward to people who ignored the “Rule of Law”. Those who have a right by birth to be here, or by the generosity of THE PEOPLE are allowed to immigrate here. But illegal immigrants are allowed to give the finger, yet given a golden stipend. For the same vilolation Americans would be imprisoned for breaking the law in Mexico or other countries

    Even industrialized nations have no leniency for people who shun the law. Politicians–our elected civil servants are supposedly acting in the name of the majority of the American people. When in actual fact, they enact laws on behalf wealthy businessmen, who can pay them the most money. It should be remembered that this clump of mostly corrupt legislators were attorneys, before they joined the wolf pack in Washington. They may have had sincere intentions, to originally carry out the publics wishes. But somewhere down the line they were corrupted by the lobbyists, swarming by the cartload on the Capitol buildings like copious flies, their wallets stuffed with money and favors? Only Americans and legal residents should have a right to assemble, not foreign nationals in rallies demanding rights. Its a sure to infuriate the millions who have waited years patiently to receive an entry visa.

    They are probably are asking themselves why bother with laws, when you can slip through a non-existing fence in some places. Perhaps they should recognize, that they don’t have to cringe in the shadows, because they didn’t violate the immigration laws. We have become soft as a nation and have let the business community and open border groups intimidate us. Its not these entities that pay for these people that they hire? Its the American taxpayers who carries the the whole and complete financial weight of the extra subsistence for these illegal aliens.

  4. I have no problems with anyone immigrating into the US looking for work, as long as they apply for citizenship, or have a legitimate work visa.

    What I extremely detest, is people receiving taxpayer benefits without ever having paid *any* taxes.

    Also, I don’t think that children born within our border should be “automatically” considered US Citizens, receiving all the privileges and benefits just for being born here – unless their parents are *already* US Citizens, or have started the process.
    (Sorry, I just don’t think that’s right…)

    As far as taking jobs away from Americans, this happens because most employers (particularly the construction business) try to increase profits by intentionally hiring “illegals” – those that are desparate, willing to work for next to nothing, and don’t have to pay taxes.
    Which means the employer doesn’t have to pay their fair share of taxes, too – like Social Security, Medicare, etc… the exact crisis that we’re facing now on these issues, due to insufficient funds.
    (Guess what doesn’t help….)

    Make them legal – make them pay taxes.

    Then you have addressed *all* concerns…

    • It is mentioned in the Constitution, First section of the Second article, regarding the qualifications for the Office of the President, that only “natural-born citizens” are elegible. What did the founding fathers mean by “natural-born citizen”?

      It means that any person is granted citizenship due to the virtues of the circumstances of his or her birth. It’s really based on English common law, which stated that each person born under a king’s rule was subject of that king. Similarily, any person born under the rule of the Constitution of the United States owes their allegiance to the United States.

      Regardless of the situation of their parents, anyone born in the United States has the RIGHT to their “natural-born citizenship”, as decribed by the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.

      Have a great day.

  5. The countries in deep problems, if the immigrants in this country are legalised make them pay back taxes or serve in the millitary(if they are of millitary age) also check their criminal background. i do think that if illegals have children in our borders that the kids should be given citizenship(as our ancestors did) but if the parents get deported the children should be taken with them and should be able to return at age 18 when they are ready to take advantage of their American priveledge. This issue is endless..lets face it..they’re going to legalize them and then we’ll deal with it in another twenty years and on and on…hey its the american way..lol my great grandparents came over hear on boats from italy with nothing and they make up the mixing pot.

  6. Illegal aliens are destroying this Country, and one would have to be almost blind not to see this. How much longer do we have to support these illegal aliens? How much longer do we have to school their illegal alien children? How much longer are we going to let them have our jobs? How much longer are we going to put up with all the crime, stolen identities, forged documents, fake green cards? How much longer are we going to allow these illegal aliens to send money out of this Country and bring our Country down? Oh, amnesty will correct all this. WRONG! Nothing will change except we wouldn’t be able to call them illegal aliens any more. Let’s get rid of these illegal aliens! Let’s get them back to their own Country where they belong!

    We gave amnesty once before. It DIDN’T work! Look what we got now. If EVERY state would crackdown on these illegal aliens, we could do what Homeland Security can’t seen to do. They are almost worthless what with that Janest Flintstone!

    I’m from Delaware, and we are pressing to get the Oklahoma State Illegal Immigration Law, HB 1804. passed here in Delaware. Three years ago we had about 32,000 illegal aliens here. Today we have about 68,000 illegal aliens here. We have had it! We want our State back!

    • That is very very wrong…
      so who is going to do the job that all illegal people do?Are you gonna have 3 jobs?I am very disapointed in Americans…At first we are not aliens…we are just the same people as you…the same…
      and if you look around yes it is a lot of us but can not be with out us we are everywhere…
      it would be our pleasure to live in our countries but if we are here that means it was very hard for us there…
      you are a very rude person…good luck to you!
      hope your child will married illegal alien so then maybe you will see we are not bad,we are just looking for a better life.

      • What about people like me who were brought here as little kids? Ive lived here my whole life graduated school with a 4.0 have a daughter now how I’m I to give her a better life? I have been here for twenty years stayed out of trouble while theirs a lot of American citizens where I’m from off doing bad y do people like that get a chance to pursuit the American dream but I can’t when they’re the ones draining the economy and all I want to do is become a teacher and do better for my daughter this whole system is messed up reform needs to happen asap. This is a form of slavery we r suffuring we are being rid of our right to the pursuit of happiness how can I give my daughter everything she needs cuz its seems that the only way I could make good money is drug dealing but I wont go down that round but I know a lot of people in my shoes that the government have lead down that road. This has to happen for the many kids that r in my shoes this needs to happen for my daughter American born citizen who I want to give her a better life but 8 dollars n hour ain’t gonna cut it.

        • Well look “jp” right now I’d be thrilled to get a job paying $8 an hour!. I’ve been out of work since April 2009 and they’ve begun forclosing on my damned home. I have tried to secure employment at many firms only to be told I must be billingual! What a bunch of crap, to be told I must speak Spanish to get a job in my own country!! Go back home, don’t want you here. By the way learn to speak English if you must stay, god forbid.

          • 8$ an hour???? The “illegals” as u call them work for 5$ an hour and never complain! U keep ur lazy a## on unemployment spending that money probably on beer and weed, so stop crying and start doing something for urself.

          • Bilingual???? in your own country????

            You’re ignorant dude and you don’t deserve a job, if you only know one language.
            Go back to school, learn french, spanish, italian, portuguese…
            Educate yourself and maybe you can keep your house.

      • Well said Cristina. My husband is illegal and I am a US citizen and all I have to say is this… myhusband works 12 hours every day and has always paid his taxes. And he does nothing wrong. And we have a 19 month old son and I am currently pregnant with our second son. What would I do if my husband would be deported? I would have to get government hand outs that every one is complaining about. Illegal immigrants can not claim government hand outs. That is the truth. And if all of these illegal immigrants are deported, all of the tax money that they are paying that is paying for these government programs would run out but more and more people would need them, like myself. So, people, stop being so racist. We need this reform to pass and the sooner the better.

    • first when Pre- American civilization started, Americans migrated from England and Invaded an un-charted land. NOT AMERICA but a land mass!!!then massacred and humiliated its race of ORIGIN.. if u so feel that you’ve reached your turning point , then you can always do what was done in the 1800’s.. migrated somewhere else and take over somebodies else’s land.. now by stating this i sound aggressive and stubborn,, but i not.. Americans have every right to make this action.. as i recall it was “THEIR” manifest destiny..

    • Ur labeling all of us on your experience what about all the whites that r in jail they stole and many did even worse that’s were ur taxes r going buddy to provide for low life people like that.

    • then all must go justified??/ should it not, Americans are thieves for raping and stealing Indian land… they must go as well no?? or how can u justify this action??? Manifest destiny?? couldn’t illegals use this same ideology to justify their actions??

  7. Why do people think that all mexicans dont pay taxes? I know a lot of mexicans that do… I also know a lot of them who dont use government help because it is “too embarrasing” and I do know for a fact that the mexicans do take the jobs the americans DONT want! if you wanted the jobs you would have been there instead of where you were or where you are, example: cow farms, chicken farms, just about any kind of farm. what about the mexicans who came here, and now have families with americans? do you really want the KIDS to suffer not having their mom or dad because of them being mexican? come on, be real and think please!

        • And obviously you really need to look at reality. I am a US citizen. I am white, born to two white parents with no illegal family on my part and I completely agress with them. You are ignorant and need to really see the big picture. We need these people here. And if we deport them all, watch all of the ignorant people like yourself, suffer the consequences. You will see.

  8. Imagine someone breaking into your house and demanding that you make them a part of your family. America is our home and I do not appreciate anyone breaking in to it and demanding anything. The whole illegal alien attitude is wrong. There’s no real understanding on the part of the illegal aliens that lets them see what they are doing to this country: the overcrowding of our schools and hospitals: the crime and lack of respect for the laws of this land, the over-burdening strain that their presence places on every part of our society: the negative impact they are having on our wages and our own ability to find work in our own country. All of this and we should welcome them into the American Family simply because they broke the law and placed their own selfish desires ahead of those who have waited for years to lawfully immigrate to the United States of America. I think not. Illegal aliens don’t kid yourselves. We really don’t need you. We can cut our own grass. We can raise our own kids. We can hang our own drywall, paint our own houses and work in our own factories. We’ve been doing it for over 230 years. Your unlawful presence here profits only those who seek self-enrichment at the expense of a hard-working and honorable people and nation. Do what’s really right. Go back to your true home.

    • If you can do all that stuff yourself, how come you aren’t? Don’t you kid yourself, illegal immigrants are just important to this country as you and I. Think about it. What would happen to all of the families that were formed here? I am a US citizen and have 2 children with my illegal husband. My children would lose their father. How is that right? If he is not doing any harm, what is the problem? He pays taxes. He can’t claim any government assistance. He will never have anything because it is almost impossible to have your papers legally to be here. Trust me, we know. It takes years and money and hurts our children. My children are American. They are my children, and they were born here. Should Americans have to suffer because of ignorance? I don’t think so. If my husband is gone, that is exactly what is going to happen. My children are going to suffer. And thats unacceptable.

  9. Americans are lazy….they dont want to work….they just want someone to blame for their american nightmare….im an american…toughen up and actually look for job cause sitting at home on your damn computer aint gonna get you a job….

  10. Why you people only think about Mexicans as illegal. There are a lot of different nationalities who came here for better life. You can’t blame them. They came here to help their families. You should respect those kind of people, they work so hard to support themselves and their families. They are not that much spoiled as we, Americans. Try to imagine if you would be born in poor country, what would you do? If we are blessed to have it all, why not to share with others? Don’t be greedy. And don’t forget that America was always different from all other countries, because of the freedom. Even your ancestors came here “illegally” more than 200 years ago. People created borders, passports and restrictions. Why you think we have more rights to be happy then them?

    God bless all of you.

  11. It will be a good idea for the economy but what annoys me most is when are they gonna accept the fact that we dont speak Spanish in america. If they learn English and stop been rude thats o.k. other than that they should;nt be allowed to live here period!

    • How about u learn Native Americans’ language then cause u live in their country. Don’t be fooled by thinking that this is UR country just cause ur ancestors massacered the natives.

  12. Well, as i see it, one of the biggest misconceptions about illegal immigrants is that they are not paying taxes.. for those how are not eligible to get a social security number there is such a thing called ITIN number which is a name that the IRS uses to identify taxpayers who don’t have a social security number. Even people using fake SSN most of the time do.. that been said, i would say around 60-70% illegal immigrants who work do pay taxes.

  13. and yes, i am an immigrant who came from Guatemala, and i agree that this country has to enforce the law.. and i totally agree that if an immigration reform occur people have to meet the requirements to be eligible, such as: LEARN THE LANGUAGE as i did.

  14. I am a mixed Italian, Irish, and Latin American. My family has been here for several generations and as an American I definitely feel privileged and proud to be blessed by God to live here. A majority of our families did not originate here and a good many of us come from ethnic backgrounds that at one time or another were considered less than worthy. Immigration is part of our nation’s foundation and is intertwined in our culture. We are stronger for it and we must remember that. We do not make our country stronger through isolation or hate and the events over the last many years should make that extremely clear to us.

    I as a proud American embrace my patriotism. My recommendation to every American is to let your wishes be known at the poles and write your representatives. This is a democracy and we must participate in it to maintain our freedom regardless of which party we are affiliated with.

    Participate in patriotic events and teach your children how privileged they are to be Americans. Teach them the Pledge of Allegiance, about the meaning of our flag, and about the countless lives that were lost to establish and defend this great nation. Show them the value of hard work and education.

    I think that it is a blessing that we live in a country which so many people around the world can only dream of living in. It means that there is something of value here. If we do not build a prosperous future for ourselves and our nation then maybe someday we or our children will be looking to emigrate elsewhere for a better life and we will no longer be complaining about the countless number of immigrants that are living among us.

    It is up to us as the citizens of this great nation to keep it proud, free, and just.

  15. i agree with byron. ITIN numbers are issued by the IRS for people who don’t qualify for an SSN. so why would the government issue these numbers to “illegal aliens?”. many undocumented workers do file taxes, because they feel that it is their duty to so, just like any other american. but at the same time many americans don’t file taxes either. there are billions of tax dollars not claimed, both by americans and undocumented workers. we should all pay taxes, i always do and im american. we should legalize all “illegal aliens” that follow the rules and pay taxes.

    • You are right, many illegal immigrants pay taxes, But because generally they earn small salaries and generally have 3 or more Kids they receice a check back from the Government For Earned Income Tax Credit,or EITC sometimes as much as $ 5.000. Then we have the ones that get paid under the table, those do not pay any Income Tax
      So in reality how much tax do they pay?
      And how much do they cost to the taxpayers?

  16. The whole thing about the reform is a good idea but the concerns i have is those those with criminal records should not be accepted period they should be singled out and sent back to their country of origin thats fair to us and also make English as a demand language to be spoken here not any other language

  17. People need to understand the visa process is NOT easy and very expensive. My husband is going through it right now as we speak. We are seperated since last November. I am an American and we have 4 children.I await in the US as he is waiting in the most dangerous part of MX (Ciudad Juarez)But the time apart could be anywhere from 2 to 18 months (immigration told us) the expense has been about $5000+ total w/o a lawyer and its not over yet. If immigration could try and make the Visa process not so difficult then this could have ben avoided. I trust that God knows what he is doing in this workd. But horrible comments that children dont deserve to be in “our” school system is just plain mean. Every child deserves an education regardless of where you cam from. Its NOT their fault. Please try to understand that not all are drug trafficing but just simply want to be with their families and live the American Dream. I would do anything to have my husband back..he is a hard worker and has always provided for his family. He doesnt deserve anything he is going through with immigration but trying to do the right thing. I would have to say I regret going this route because of the loss and pain myself and our children are going through. The unknown of when we will see eachother again. The broken immigration process needs to be fixed so it doesnt seem so impossible to get a Visa/Grn card and sscard. God works in mysterious ways and never doubt what he is doing. Be still in the time of worry and uncertainty be still and you will feel God’s tug in the direction that is meant for you.

  18. I’m an old lady over 80, alone and got my family in europe. in the early 40s i married my husband. he was a born american citizen and served in the air force. my son, his wife and my grandsons all can’t get a green card. they’re all over 21, of course. even my son has to wait at least ten years until he MAY get a green card (that’s how long it’ll take…at LEAST).

    so what about my grandsons? forget it all together! they’re not even eligible for a green card! all they can do is playing the so called “green card lottery”…and the chance to win is minimal.

    to sum it up: since my husband passed away, i got nobody here anymore! nobody! no matter with how many immigration lawyers i speak, nobody can help me. but i need my family here, i got no help here without them! who knows how long i will remain here on earth.

    but yet, the hispanics get green cards, working permits, the so called “dream act” which our crooked government tries to push through once in a while and so on and so on.
    yes, even when you go shopping or try to call customer support…they offer everything in spanish as well! or look at our president. he only talks about “hispanic family reunion” when he speaks about immigration reform…everything exclusively for hispanics! they come in illegally and get rewarded! and what do our european allies get?! NOTHING! they’re just good for sending their military men and women to die for us (iraq and afghanistan), to send money and tourists…but never get something in return! and you wonder why they don’t like our government any longer, why some of them refuse to cooperate any longer…

    • Mrs. I’m sorry to hear that about you,wish i could help:( But the reason they offer Spanish a lot,is because that’s a really common language here Mrs. But i also think that Americans should also learn at least a second language,and no it doesn’t have to be Spanish, but many countries have mastered their second language by the end of middle school, I myself,currently know English as my first, Spanish as my second, and almost will have mastered my french by the end of this year:) and I’m thinking of taking either Latin or German,when i go to collage:) its not as hard to learn a language Mrs… so i think people should not complain a lot of people needing Spanish, if i remember right,Mexico lost the Mexican war and the Texas revolution, and their were already Mexican people living their,and they let anglo-americans to imigrate to Texas, and did Mexians say anything? I’m sure they had to learn the english laguage too in order to interact with the americans. as so the americans had to to learn spanish. but my point is,their were already spanish/mexican people here in texas,and they lost the War,they couldn’t just leave, it was their home. as a result of the treaty of Guadulpe Hidalgo,and the mexican war, the USA, aquired many land that was once spanish speaking,and had mexicans in it:) So that probaly one of the reasons theres alot of spanish.to prove my point,than why is some of californa’s state,influenced by spanish culter? like the mission houses and stuff? Thats why spanish is common and some southern states such Texas and New mexico, and just for my advise, if u feel unhappy of being seperated from your family,than u should just move to where ever your grandsons are..it’s simple as that Mrs. If you really want something, you’ll do the impossible to get it:) that’s something i learned. Have a good day Mrs. and sorry if i sound rude, i wasn’t trying to be. ciao!

  19. I just want to say to all those who think that we undocumented aliens don’t pay taxes that i’ve paid taxes for well about 8 years, and im only 24 years old. Furthermore, I know a great deal of undocumented aliens, both asian and hispanic that also pay their due taxes. I would also like to point out that it is much harder for us to collect an income tax refund on the grounds that we do not have an SSN, rather we have the aforementioned ITIN number which is a nice gesture by the government that doesn’t want us here but is always up for taxing us, pretending we are citizens only when it is convenient. Please dont misunderstand, I am not against paying taxes, I just find the hypocrisy and duplicity amusing.

    On a more professional note, I am writing this in between classes in a college that I attend, I am fluent in 4 languages, am an avid programmer and cyclist, obey most laws except for the obvious ones and I consider myself a generally good person, yet in spite of all that, i have to live my life as a criminal on the run would. I wont sit here and pretend that all undocumented aliens are in the same position as I, but as a matter of basic human rights, why must we be hunted down like animals when all we want is to live out lives in peace? Why is is that I am not allowed to drive a car legally? Sometimes I wonder if perhaps Canada or New Zealand would be more welcoming to hardworking people such as us but in the end, this country is my home, this is where I will live out my golden years and whether you xenophobes like it or not, I am proud to be a Texan and even more proud to be an American, even if some piece of paper says that im not.

  20. This country is made of immigrants from all over the world we all share one planet. Now for those of you who think that (Illegal Immigrants) don’t pay taxes you are wrong. Illegal immigrants who obtain a visa with a tin # pay taxes but do not get any benefits from any tax dollar they pay. When we do the math on how much money illegal immigrants fork out to the government it is in the BILLIONS. Do your research and still illegal immigrants don’t go around complaining. Do your research and understand the hardwork any immigrant puts into getting to the top. This country speaks for itself. It is a land of immigrants and they have worked hard to get where their at.

  21. I am an Australian and i had lived in USA for 17 years. I came to the states when i was 16 after a short visit to US with my family. But then somehow i decided to stay and therefore i overstayed for 14 years. I realized that i was living illegally in United States. Every time i applied for a job i always told the interviewer that i was an American citizen. And I got a good carier while i was there, good salary and great insurance benefit, etc,. A couple years ago i decided to go back to my country. US had blessed me so much with money and jobs and educations. I think people who overstayed their visa must be allowed to have some kind of legalization. Send them back home to their countries first and let them apply there and let the overstayed immigrants come back when Americans get job first. I realized that I was there with all the benefit i received i did it at the expense of American tax payers. I know it is hard for america to deal with 30 million illegal immigrants spread across the country. Unless USA is broke enough that they would seek donations by having the illegal pay the fine. Best to you guys!

  22. Do any of you have a clue of the number of illegal aliens that are here with criminal records? The numbers are out of control. The agencies that are responsible for immigration enforcement within the US only go after the aliens who have been arrested and or convicted of CRIMES… Last year alone there were close to 400,000 and a majority were criminals. Get a clue… they are not all here just to work. The average american is so misinformed.

    • YOUR comment is very true, some are criminals. NOT ALL, that’s why the immigration reform that will be proposed states, you will only get a “legal status” if you have been a good resident, this means they will do a criminal background. You have good moral character (no criminal record). And I am very sorry to inform you but not all the scum, e.g. pedofiles, thefts, killers, etc. are here illegaly. Sorry to break the news to you 🙁

      • Your not breaking news to me. The question about this bill is what is considered a “criminal record”. The Obama admin. has gone on record stating that you must be convicted of a felony to be considered a criminal and that includes aliens who have already been deported. I don’t agree with that at all. There are states that classify Assault-domestic violence and all DUIs as misdemeanors. That is just a couple of crimes. Listen, I understand those who have come here to provide for their families, the problem is there are a lot fewer of those than people realize. This country has become soft in my opinion. (which I know doesn’t count for much). When are we going to stop with the handouts and worrying about others..i.e. illegals.. and start to worry about americans? google immigration posts about illegals in the LA times. (a very liberal paper by the way). They did an article about the crazy numbers of illegals in LA county. For instance.. 60% of HUD homes are taken by illegals… 95% of people wanted for murder are illegals… over 50% of the state pens are filled with illegals.. and it goes on. Do the research this is true and only represents on county. Now, tell me that isn’t a big reason that Cali is going bankrupt. Go Nancy Pelosi….

      • Oh and by the way…. NO CRAP!!!! I know not all the scum is here illegally. However, using your point at hand, don’t we have enough scum running around to deal with? I don’t think we need more in a system that is already overloaded with ciminals. Oh, and believe me, there a lot of illegals here who have been convicted of the “scum” crimes…..A LOT…. If you don’t believe me look it up. Watch america’s most wanted this weekend. Listen to the stories. You can make a put the pieces together to realize atleast three if not more of them are here illegal. Oh, and don’t give me that crap about judging a book by its cover. When they say after the crime the subject may have fled back to mexico. What do you think that tells you?

        • DEAR DWILL,

          I am going to do some research beacuse your numbers sound crazy! On the other hand, I would like you to put in my shoes for a second. I was deported when I was only 15 years old, and honestly I did not know the consequences back then. Now that I am 10 years older I wish I never signed any papers I was a minor!! and very ignorant to the immigration laws. I have been living in this county since I was nine, I have been to MExico 2 times since then. I have learned to love this country, why I don’t want to back to mine?? Because, I like it here, I come from a lower class family, and with my hard work I have accomplish so many stuff that I would have never accomplish in my country. If you are born poor you will die poor…even if you work and work your whole life. I mean don’t get me wrong there is people who have improve but it is extremely hard. My biggest wish is that I can get a green card, first so I can go see my mother and grandma (have not seen them in six years), than I would like to do a master’s degree as An Registered Nurse. Even if I went to Mex know I will not be able to afford my education. I have an Associates as a Surgical Tech, however, I can’t work as that because Hospitals are very strict with SS# laws. And like me there are a lot, we have dreams, we have hope. Yes, I wish some of my people didn’t do what they do, it makes people like you generalized us and even hate us. I, like you wish they weren’t here they frighten me! But, unfortunately that’s imposible anywhere we go in this country or other we will have to see the consequences of their acts. Plese don’t judge us like that.

          • So you know I’m not judging I’m stating facts. I’m sorry the truth hurts. Also, were you a criminal when you were deported? I ask because juvies are only deported if they have been convicted of crimes. If they are not ciminals then the get a voluntary return to their country. SO where is the truth in your story? Sorry to be so educated on the matter.

          • DWILL,

            NO, As far as I am concern, my only crime was entering this country illegally. When I came here I was 15 a teenage girl…there are different ways to enter this country illegally, my mother didn’t want to risk my life therefore, she paid extra so I could pass through the “line” which is what you would do if you were coming from Mex via land. I used somebody’s resident card that the “traffickers” had given me (at that time neither my mom or I were educated or informed about the consequences, this means you are stealing somebody’s identity!) My mother was ignorant, and since she did not want me crossing the dessert or any other dangerous path she picked that one. Consequence…they noticed I was not that person and deported me, the traffickers told me before hand to say that i was 18 so I could avoid being held at the mexican border until somebody from my family were able to get me so I did, consequently, I was treated as an adult and was deported I signed papers without knowing what they really meant, all that I knew at that time is that I wanted to be by my mother. When I as 18 I went to Mex ( I hadn’t see my grandmother in three years). Came back did not use anybody’s papers…they found out what had happened when I was 15 and Deported me(again). Honestly if I would have known the consequences of my acts I would had never done it. Hopefully, someday I will be able to come and go to my country without having to through all that I have no seen my mother in six yrs and that really hurts…
            You might be thinking why don’t you go back and stay there?? Well, I have stablish my family here, I love the security of this country, I have been here since I was nine this is all I know….

          • So, were you 9 or 15 when you came? You said both a different times in your statement. What your saying is you were deported or you were allowed to leave on your own? You made the choice to raise set stake here ILLEGALLY so I’m sorry you don’t see your family but that was your choice. You stole someone’s identity to get here. That is a crime as I’m sure you know. I don’t wish you well in your life but the law is the law, so if you are caught then you must go back.

          • So you know i did not mean to write that I don’t wish you well. That was an error, I do wish you well.

  23. Obama is smart enough to make great decisions, Since he took the seat at the White House in little less than 4 months he made a great health care reform that actually will help everyone, even new jobs for those who are in medical billing, nurses, etc…
    Now i`m confident that everything is in God’s hand and if someone convicted for a crime this is a good way to find them. I know that when you go for an interview at the immigration, they have a book of your life where you used to live, that tells EVERYTHING about you, so can’t miss if you are a criminal. now also this will also help our economy, i`m sure there will be a fine to be paid by each application like they used to do before (looong time ago) $1000 sorry letter.
    And also when immigrants came here everyone has its own story, own goal and we just cant judge the book by its cover, not matter your color size the cloth you wear.
    I know immigrants that they worked hard and went to college, graduated and they still work hard. not to “take jobs” but to desire a better living. I`m a citizen and I`m married with the most wonderful, blessing husband that i can only thank God for him and we have 2 beautiful kids, but who knew that he was the one? thankfully i meet him, and i couldn’t be happier.

  24. I hope the justice will win over this immigration issue. Immigrants who come to overstay in the US are just looking for problem for themselves. Paying taxes and other good things or being a good citizen don’t get you automatic legality in the USA. What happens when stranger comes to your house and start doing going all of a sudden? Of course you will tell him/her the rule or law of how to be accepted in you house by not entering the house without permission if they do they gotta be jailed for breaking in. Illegal and overstayed immigrants know that there would be consequence for breaking the law of the immigration. Here in Australia the government deports all the undocumented and illegal immigrants they can find but give the deportees chance to be legal by going back to the countries of origin and doing all the required paper works there for re-entrance to Australia.

    I think America should do the same thing by sending them back to their countries and have them file for their work permit or green card or what not there.

    • DEAR ANDREW,

      I think this issue does not concern you! You are in Australia… Now it seems like your country is more acceptable when it comes to immigrants that is good! Since a lot of people are not in our shoes is not easy for them to understand. EDUCATE YOURSELF!

  25. It does concern me. If you read my previous comment i wrote that I lived in US illegallyfor 17 years. I came on a tourist visa but i overstayed and decided to live and go to school and work also. I left US 2 years ago and from my personal first hand experience as an illegal immigrant. i loved living in the US because i had a good job with good benefits and stuffs. But on the flip side of the coin, i knew that i was there breaking the law of the land by taking all the benefits that weren’t supposed to be mind. I paid taxes all my working years but still that doesn’t mean i deserved automatic entitlement for legal status. I decided to go back home since it’s much better to be at home than being a foreigner living in a shadow of the INS. I hope the illegals deserve humane treatment but on the other side they must know that they’ve BROKEN the law in the first place no matter how you cut it.

  26. Two things happens in this scenario.

    1=deport all illegals.
    2=make all illegals legal.

    case no.1 Deporting all illegals out from U.S.A-
    A.12 millions illegals in U.S.A
    B.approximately $6000 spent on illegals to deport them.
    C.$$$$ spent on ICE agents to locate these aliens.
    D.$$$$ Misc.. expenses to carry out the procedures how to handle these aliens like prisons,lawyers etc..

    now lets calculate all these..

    12M x $6000 x C x D=?

    that much money is going to be spent..
    whose money tax payers money
    who tax payers-all peoples who paying taxes in U.S.A illegally or legally..

    Can we all handle this thing..

    now

    case no.2 Legalize all illegals.

    A.12 millions people
    B.approximately Fines-$5000
    C.Pay back Taxes-$$$$
    D.immigration fees and paper works- app. $2000
    E.lawyers-$$$$

    lets calculate

    12m x $5000 x C x D x E=?

    So i am asking what is the best for U.S.A

    spend more money
    or
    Get more money

    • Jay,

      I will be willing to pay up to 15,000 to get a green card and see my grandmother, mother and all the rest of my family. This is all I can afford :(. And I am sure many will try to come up with the money its worth it.

    • OK… So what about the percentage of the 12 million who are criminals???? Take there money but let them ran havic. Yeah that’s a good idea.

    • The problem is coming later if they get legalized. Chain Migration would swell this country about 60 t 70 million more in this country. Most of them are uneducated,and would be able to apply for welfare, The infrastructure is not prepared for that kind of influx, tha water would get more scarce , particularly in some of the Southwestern states.
      A real nightmare!

  27. Dear Andrew Lou,

    Congratulations!!, Now, that you are on the other side you are judging! You are like most people, once they have it made they start looking at this situation differently, why did you stayed that long? Why did you take “advantage” of this country? Now that life has given you the oppurtunity of a fresh start at your country you are feeling guilty… what you are is selfish!
    Unlike you I don’t receive any benefits, I paid my own education (college) and I also pay taxes. I hope that I nver become like YOU! I hope that I never forget where I come from and what situations I have been through. OH, but, wait maybe I will go back to my country someday…and start judging all illegals!! After I have gotten from this country what I NEEDED!!! SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA?

  28. For those who are citizens and don’t have a job, don’t you just “hope/wish” someone would go through your resume and admire/value what you’ve accomplished and hire you?

    For those who are illegal, don’t you just “hope/wish” immigration would see how hard you’re trying to make something out of your life here in the U.S, where you have to live under the shadows, and help you get those 9 numbers that will make you part of this place you call home?

    We’re all alike no matter where we live or what situation you’re going through. We all want the best for our families. We all have “hope” and “wish” and isn’t that what America is all about? Chasing your dreams! I’m an immigrant and I can’t fix my status eventhough I’ve been hear since I was 4 but what am I to do? Blame my mother for chasing a dream. I am grateful for that because I now live and love this country. I would love to be given the chance to prove my loyalty and knowlede to this country but since I came here illegaly, Im unable to. I haven’t been to my country, therefore; I literally don’t have any type of records or history. So where am I from? I can’t be from here and if I go back to where I was born, I will have nothing but “hope” and “wishes”.

    This immigration reform should atleast be given to the youth because it’s sad when you’re growing up and you have so many ideas and plans but all of a sudden you hit 18 and you realize that you’re different from all of your friends. Nine numbers prevent you from driving and pursuing your college carrier due to insufficient funds.

  29. I think the majority of the illegal immigrant must be legalized providing they pay a fine and have no criminal record.It would do a great benefit to this country.MAke it a 10k fine, who cares? People pay more for a “fake marriage”, so let the country finally benefit from the process.

    • Vandim,

      I you are a citizen and can vote you can help our dreams come true, the proposal that they are wanting to pass includes, fines, payback on taxes etc.. Trust me it will help the USA and it will help us to make our dreams come true!! Please Support a Fair IMmigration Reform. YOU ARE THE VOICE!

      P.S. VOTE FOR SENATORS WHO SUPPORT THE DREAM ACT AND OR A FAIR IMMIGRATION REFORM.

  30. Sophie, I paid taxes for 15 years. The only benefits i got was that, i worked as a physician assistant at some hospital so of course part of the deal when they accepted me in the position were all the benefits. I paid tax almost $2000 dollars a month for 6 years. Now you count yourself how much the govt took from me. I paid my attorney for a green card which has been pending since 2004 almost $20grand. What doesn’t make sense is that giving illegal free pass to citizenship is a suicide to the United States. I am not asking for a all out mass deportation. But hey would others countries like mine, Mexico, china etc give you the same chance. I was offered to go to Mexico to do a seminar about health but since i didn’t have all the paperwork the govt didn’t me to go there because they couldn’t pay me if i didnt have the needed paperworks. So yes i know how what it felt like to be an illegal immigrants for 17 years. I just happened to work my butt off to get my degrees. My suggestion is that US should be selective in legalizing the illegals. Get the ones which the country will be most benefited and deport the rest but make them eligible to re-enter US once they get all their paperworks out side. So you know my stand on this issue that I am for and against legalization 30 millions illegals. That’s why i said earlier that i hope justice wins and the illegals get treated with JUST! Best to you guys

  31. Dear,
    Andrew Lou
    SO far NO immigration proposal is offering a :”free” citezenship. The proposal they have will cost; fines, pay back taxes, processing fees etc. And it will have many years of probation before you can even apply for citizenship (which I think is fear).

    PS I AM GLAD YOU DID NOT GATHERED YOUR PAPERS TO GO TO MEXICO, I LOVE MY COUNTRY, HOWEVER, I COSIDER MY COUNTRY DANGEROUS…TRUST ME YOU WOULDN’T HAVE FELT THE PERSONAL SECURITY THAT YOU FELT HERE IN THE USA. THAT IS WHY I WANT TO STAY HERE. MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY HAD BEEN ABDUCTED AND ROBBED. IT’S SAD, IT’S AN EVERYDAY THING…

  32. OHH! ANDREW LOU AND I ALMOST FORGOT, now you see how my country is still in the bureaucratic era?? They make everything so difficult…and the more money you have the more you can get away with. TOo bad I was born to a poor family :(. But, that’s ok if my dream of becoming a legal resident here comes true, I will change my luck.

  33. I am in construction and sines the 1990’s slowly they have taken my work,till we have what we have. I have been on unemployment for a year and all most a half!
    Every one wants to say this and that about the economy but, what about all the Tax money they don’t pay. And all the money getting sent to Mexico? Where is my tax exception?
    And as far as illegals it is what it is Illegal!
    (that means braking the law)as far as the ones here illegally they need sent back. And as far as the ones sneaking in well the U.S.A military should put snipers in training on the border and well that speaks for it’s self. It would take only a few and the word would be out.You sneak in like a thief then you get treated like a thief.(smoked)and who said it was only Mexicans? I bet there’s been a few tarriest walk across that border too!Better wake up people. I don’t think we have learned anything after 9/11?

    • It sucks to hear about people not having jobs with the depression but I’d just like to point out your reasoning behind illegal immigrants is very flawed. If the law is as black & white as you say, why do you think there are amendments and bills still being passed? Would you have been on the law’s side when slavery was “legal” and slaves did not want to be slaves anymore? These “laws” are all man-made which is why they are being patched up all the time. Now I don’t know the perfect solution to this mess but I’m almost positive it isn’t the way you’re approaching it. Please don’t argue a point because it “legally” favors your position and actually think things through.

    • JIMI, I honestly feel bad for you. And I can see sharing your point of view if i where in your shoes. However, have you tried hard enough to get a job? Even if it takes a paycut? Or are you just sitting at home waiting for things to happen…
      How about doing side jobs to your neighbors, friends etc. THat will help too. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, at least you problably get unemployment 🙂

  34. first and for most, we need to protect our border…it’s really not good that we don’t have control over who is entering the country ( criminals fleeing from prosecution in their countries)…

  35. Thay have cost us a lot of money in many ways. and not much is sead about it.
    And the borders are a joke.
    And Jimi I think you mean ( where is my tax exemptions )
    and mine?
    And that building a wall,fencing come on man get real!
    That’s like tape on a flat tire.

  36. Shilah is your name nancy pelosi?
    It has nothing to do with race! I dont care if they come from MARS. Thay are not paying taxes on there jobs that’s the bulk of there money and yours! Lot of money not coming back.
    Come on go through the proper channels I cant break the law why should they?

    • TIM,

      What do you mean we don’t pay taxes, I pay sales tax, property tax etc. OH! and by the way I also get almost 100.00 taken out of my check every 2 wks. Yeah, there are exemptions, some people get paid cash, however, that is why the GOV. will make them pay back their taxes, check criminal records, charge fines, we will have a probation period before we even get a chance to become a permanent resident. (which it totally fear and needs to be done). THis is why I have a hope that my situation will change….if a reform is approved.
      Furthermore, if i were to get a green card I would invest my money in this country, maybe open a small business or something like that. NOw my future is so uncertain, I try to keep my spending to a minimum (don’t go out to eat, or buy unecessary things). And I know many people are in my situation pay taxes, etc etc.

      • Sophie, I don’t feel sorry for you. Illegals complain about having to live in fear; well that is becasue you are hiding from the law because you broke it. It is your own fault and that is why you don’t get to see your family. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and deal with the consequences of your actions. You come here illegally then ask for more handouts. What gives you the right to think you can come here and then all the sudden deserve status and the ability to stay? For all the illegals who say they have come here and become educated then go back home with your knowledge and make the place better. You’re always quick to say I’m Mexican or represent the countries your from and wave your flags in pride at rallies; so be proud, go home, and make the countries your from better.

        • DEAR DWILL,

          I don’t feel sorry for myself… I am glad for what I have acomplished in life. NOw like I explained to your before(and you don’t seem to get it) I did not know the consequences of my actions, I was ignorant, I was a minor. My story is longer than that… It will take me days to tell it to you. When I came the first time I was 9 and I was not caught by immigration. NOw do u get it?? when i was 15 i got caught… As far as I am concern I don’t receive handouts, I work, pay rent, paid my own tuition etc. I do feel sorry for people like you who are full of hate and are unable to feel compassion for others. I tried to make you understand!
          PS Yes I am proud of the place that saw me born, however, I am also proud of the place I feel my home and that has given me the oppurtunity to go to school and get a job that permits me afford my education (USA).

  37. If all the law breakers who broke the immigration law is like you Sophie I wouldn’t mind if the gov would be legalizing you to be a legal resident because you speak English and you seem to be aware of what’s it all about America. But sadly most if not all illegals don’t have the conditions worthy to be legalized because they are just simply a huge burden for the country. America wants you because America needs you. America needs me that is why i return to my country to file the paper works in the right, true, and legal way.

    So i hope you dont think of me as evil who smile at people’s suffering. I always encourage my friends who are still without paper works in the States that they gotta go to school while they havent been caught by the INS but if they don’t wanna be valuable assets to USA than they should just return quickly to their countries of origin.

    My solution is always feasible, deport the unwanted and keep the once crucially needed in this country to compete with the world. I let go of my good carrier as physician assistant so that Americans can get the job i had first. Then when my turn is up than they can invite me just as they already did.

    Best to you all,

  38. Why dont you fix your country?
    Why invade this country?
    Fix your own problems, your problems are becoming are problems and that’s not the way it should be..
    And as far as bill passing and goverment? We got health care shoved down are neck.Get real.

  39. I just want to remind everybody one thing! EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY CAME FROM A IMMIGRANT FAMILY!

    • Yes you are right, every single person in this country came from an immigrant family, including the native Americans that came from Asia. But this country like all the rest of the countries have immigration laws, and people need to have an authorization or Visa to come in, the same that it is in Mexico , Canada, or any other sovereign country. You just cannot brake in because you want to

  40. Well that was before there were 309,042,000 people in this country.
    AND NO NOT EVERYONE IS A IMMIGRANT.
    The Native Americans were here FIRST and thay let people in and look what happen to them!!

    • John, 1st The so call native Americans were also immigrants, they emmigrated from Asia through the Straits of Bering when it was land. . So they are not really “native” Americans. 2nd When the Pilgrims came to this the Indians were nomad tribe without any union
      and had no immigration laws. Comprende ?

  41. Good point John.

    And what’s that got to do with mexico taking responsibility to fix there country,thay should..
    we have had Civil Wars,Racial Riots, Wars , to make this country what it is where were you and your family back then?
    I HAT WHEN PEOPLE CUT IN LINE.

  42. Not everyone are immigrants.
    and the native americans were here first,and let people in and look what happen.
    We should take mexico and call this country and mexico
    AMarico

  43.

    I HAT WHEN PEOPLE CUT IN LINE.

  45. wow. . . zpa and castells. . . you are so selfish. . . stop worrying about yourself and see how so many people are starving in the worst conditions, and you guys can’t even give them a bone. . . its obvious you guys never struggled

  46. All of you illegals should leave. You have not paid your dues in this country,and illegal is what it is! The govermant needs sued for not doing there JOBS, We pay them to inforce are laws and thay are NOT! And if you think this is going to stand YOU need to know YOU GOT A FIGHT COMING. American black/white are not going to stand for this much longer. It’s already started and it will get more intense! BET THAT…
    Fix your own country! FIX YOUR OWN COUNTRY.
    And we mite all be immigrants and we had the come on in policy,
    but that was when this country was new and growing.
    But now ther is 309,042,000 + people in here. And the geographic footprint is not getting any larger.

    You ever herd my cup runneth over?? FIX YOUR OWN COUNTRY, WHAT YOU HAVE NO PRIDE FOR YOUR COUNTRY? We have fought,argued,Went to WAR for
    over 234 years,where were you and yours? I heve a deed uncle laying in vietnam somewhere he gave his life for this countr,I dont think mexico was 0n his mind at the time, MY dad made it back from there and I know mexico was not on his mind!
    My grandpaw was a world war 2 hero I dont think fighting for mexico is what the man did! I got one cousin in iraq and two in afghanistan. THAT’S PAYIND DUES!!! EATHER COME IN THROUGH THE RIGHT CHANNELS OR STAY OUT.Jim I love your ideal on border patrol that would keep the terrorist from coming over the fence. FENCE WHAT A JOKE THAT’S WHAT’S PROTECTING US FROM TERRORIST JUST STROLLING IN,WHAT A JOKE WHAT A JOKE You know thay have found quran in the desert next to the borders. YOU BETTER WAKE UP 9/11 WAS NOT A JOKE AND NEXT ONE WILL BE WORSE..And Sophie you pay no whare nere the taxes me and my family pay and have payed we have far more invested in this country then u..FIX YOUR OWN

    • You FTW, this world is created for everybody, and everybody have the right to live in any place they want.
      Your parents came some time ago from abroad as immigrants. At least you have to realize that. All your thoughts are wrong. If a reform for immigration will be done, all immigrants will pay their taxes by the rules, and in the results will lead the economy get better. Immigrants who came here are the people who struggled in their country and they want to build a great future, and you should learn how to spell the words right before ignoring somebody.

    • My dear patriotic countryman- I think it is very dangerous to assume you have invested more in this country than anybody else- just because you are paying more taxes? All it means than you are making more money than other people- and that is wonderful for you, but just because your family fought in all the wars you have no right to dictate anything. Did you ever hear of democracy?
      And by the way ,what did you do personaly,not your cousines, to deserve to be our leader?
      One more thing- as a patriot you should work little bit harder on your English spelling, because it is pretty poor…Now and then use your spell check.
      Best regards
      Abby

    • Why should I leave, I’m smarter than you, look how you spelled some of your wordings (mite) hey it is might!!! stupid (ther) it is there!!! moron, (herd) it is heard red neck, (I heve a deed uncle) It is I have a dead uncle. What kind of education do you have? Before you make comments about us Illegal Immigrants better go first go school and study your english. And by the way we pay our taxes, we are law abiding people and very respectful to law and others.

  47. Ashley no one gave us a bone! Nothings free you don’t understand that. That’s the hole problem with the way you and illegals think! You think you can jump on in and join the party.(you are not invited)You are like parasites!
    FIX YOUR OWN COUNTRY what’s wrong with that idea anyway?
    Don’t you think Mexico is worth fixing? That is your home land.
    And don’t think Americans have not had struggle.
    (THAT’S A SELFISH WAY OF THINKING)you never heard of the grate depression? I suppose all the wars we have had was a cakewalk? Ashley you jest wont something for nothing!
    castells/zpa I’m right with you brothers.I HAT WHEN PEOPLE CUT IN LINE TOO.And FTW I got nothing but respect for you, you mad a heavy point!
    Come in through the proper channels or get out,if I cant brake the law then why should you?

    • I hope all the undocumented people become legal!!! You sure enjoy your house, the roads, bridges built by illegals. You have no problem with that right? Oh and what about the AMERICANS out there pan handling, why aren’t the AMERICANS standing outside of Home Depot looking for work, like the illegals, you don’t see them pan handling, looking for the easy way out like most AMERICANS. AMERICANS are always ready to cry wolf. There are plenty of AMERICANS that don’t pay taxes, members of CONGRESS at that! Get over it, theres not a damn thing you can do about it. Be mad at your government, not the people. Who wouldn’t take advantage of the fact the government is willing to help you illegal or not??? Has it ever crossed your mind that maybe they have tried to fix their country without success??? I sure would hate to be you come judgement day!!! I hope GOD makes you kiss an illegals ass before getting into heaven!!!

  48. Beatrice you are a Moron a parasite and a failure.
    And you and your kind will see in the long run.
    Americans are not going to keep tolerating this, you will see you will see..
    your half the reason our economy is in the toilet.
    And if you loved your home land you would not have gave up on it.
    And you can kiss my black ass to boot.

  49. parasite parasites invaders brown hord
    stay out stayout get out
    YOU ARE NOT WELLCOME.
    This country needs an EXORCISM,you brownys need flushed!

  50. My father and all my uncles came over here illegally some 30 odd years ago, they are all legal now. It sickens me to death to see all the hatred in this world. I honestly must say that americans are jealous of the fact that the so called “illegals” are getting paid for doing the work americans are too LAZY to do. You sit around whining and crying about “illegals” taking all the work, you go about hating on them and where they come from well why don’t you get your fat asses out there and sweat a little, do a little REAL hard labor, oh but then you’d be ready to SUE cause you “hurt your back” doing a little work, or it got too hot. Don’t get me wrong i am an american and my mother as well, and i appreciate my country for all it’s done for myself and my family but gosh cut some people some slack, you don’t even know why they even had to come over here in the first place you just assume you do. Americans say why not get permission to come over here legally? well if it were that simple, we wouldn’t be having this issue in the first place, would we? And beatrice, you are right about judgement day….jesus loves everybody of all colors, races, shapes and sizes. “He even loves all those who pass judgement, and have an open heart”

  51. Bacteria I built my own home?
    And beck (you have the right to live in any place they want)
    You are in some other world.
    I can’t stan you treehuggers.
    I think we should take mexico and let them join the U.S.A
    and work there problems and our out too.
    But you see how mexicans are with the give me give me,
    is it free Atattooed. YOU PEOPLE ARE GREADY.
    AND YOU ARE BREAKING ARE LAWS,Disrespecting us right from the start.And you sit back playing stupid and wondering what the problam is.ENJOY THE ADMINISTRATION IN OFFICE IT WILL BE SHORT LIVED,HE IS A ONE TIMER.YOU WILL SEE.

  52. AMIE
    I Hung drywall for 17 years pease working that means the more I do the more I make me and two other men average 20+ sheets a houre (48″*144″&56″*144″sizes)
    I resent you calling us lazy.I know what hard work is.
    I dont think you know the defantion of illegal , you are building a house on a crooked foundation.

    • james: I understand you have experienced what hard work is, and i commend you but there are a lot that haven’t even done half of what you have in those 17 years their whole life and yet are so quick to pass judgement and show their greed. I do know what illegal means- contrary to law or official rules. like i stated previously, the majority of the people do not know the real reason why others immigrate to the states, in most cases they have no other choice, have you watched the news lately? my dad, a mexican, taught my siblings and i to respect one another, and to be greatful that we were born in a country where we have tons of educational choices, rights, and a supportive government that has alot to offer americans. Of course my father hates the fact that he had to come over here the way he did but he had no other choice. He lost a sibling to pneumonia due to they had no money to pay for doctors, medicines..etc. he is the oldest of the siblings and took it upon himself to come over here to work and send money home to help his family get what they needed to live. Don’t get me wrong, minimum wage then was not even close to what it is now so even what he sent wasn’t much but was enough to help keep put food on the table, and essentials to make sure they had clean clothes to wear, and atleast one good pair of shoes for each of his brothers and sister (there were only 4 of them), that didn’t have holes in them, so that they could wear them to school. They don’t ask anyone to feel sorry for them, only to see that they struggle too and things aren’t offered to them in mexico like here in the states.

  54. U.S.A Borders
    First off you have to remember this is ower first line of defenc against on comeing invasions, infestaions, contamminations ECT..

    We have to matinee the country’s security.

    Amie It is hard living in alot of places in this world.
    We can not take in everyone.
    I do understand were you are coming from.
    I admire your Dad.But what he did was illegal,you sound like good people.
    You have to understand not everyone that comes through are borders are good people.Look at 9/11!
    Everyone wants to make it personal,but thay are forgetting why we have these laws anyway.

    • But depending ont the reform they put out their will be no problem, i’m talking about how in order for you to get close to becoming a citzen they will check your full background, to make sure your good person…

  55. Well all those terrorists coming from Muslim country. No other religion or country wants to harm USA except those muslims, If u guys r so scared that terrorists will get papers or cross the border then just cut the muslim fuckers. There u go everyone happy ever after, But u guys do understand that there is not only Mexicans but also african, polish, indian … etc.

    • thank you steve….point made! they worry about MEXICANS crossing borders, when they really should be worried about the one’s flying over here blowing things up

  56. You people go back to the same thing everytime.
    We have no idea what’s up next! And as long as the doors are wide open you never know who could come in.

  57. amie
    Your so smart why don’t you and Steve go to Mexico and fix that country,then no more debating and as long as every ones got a point keep your sombreros on and no one will notes!!!!!!!
    And why not let everyone one on the planet come over and live here.And all the generations of black&whits go some were Else and you people can have it all ! I mean in the long run is’ant that what you want any way.
    You need to grow some balls and say it like it is!
    I got a friend from ecuador and he told me his grandma had mexicans for helpers and he sead she told him don’t let them
    in the house thay will try to take over and boy she is so right!

  58. You dont think the drug dealers and the drug war in mexico is not terrorism?
    How about the rancher that got shot in arizona what you think about that.
    Ya that’s real good people ant it?
    Look we dont need any more loosers in this country we are full of them all ready.(case in point look at are childish greedy government)
    The american people do not want all these people pouring in to this country.
    And we do not care what the government says, after all it’s we the people right?
    I and others do not know why you do not fix your country?
    You want to ruin this country jump on in get that free money get them grants the tax exemption get that welfare take them Jobs why we the people get to pay for it with the taxes we pay and have payed for generations to build this country.
    If you think we are going to sit here and let this happen
    then you are ignorant!.

  59. You see how the mexicans are acting in arizona? You see them on the news throwing things on the police acting like animals!
    Now I understand why mexico is in a mess!
    And we do not need that mess coming over here.
    And what I can’t understand is over half the people standing in the street are not even legal?
    But I am glad arizona is making a stand on the insanity.
    We have these laws for a reason GO THROUGH THE PROPER channels!
    OBAY ARE COUNTRYS LAWS OR STAY OUT.
    You dont have any respect for this country then stay out…

  60. ordalayeay vatos

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT WANT THIS Invation.
    AND WE WILL TAKE A STAND!YOU WILL SEE

    • Being a 15 year old girl that was brought into the United States at the age of 11 months, I believe I am a good person. I have done nothing illegal but live? My grades in school are above average, my GPA almost a 4.0, if I can’t stay then I have no future… I am the only child in my family who was not born here, my family is uneven! And all of it is not my fault… People need to be realistic!

      I don’t understand why those who dislike illegals so much can’t spell correctly or even speak proper English. If you want to fight for your country or whatever you think you are fighting/standing for at least draw attention to your comment by being aware of the grammar mistakes you make. Why should this country be run by stupid people who just like to argue and build up walls?! I had no choice, I’m here because this is where I grew up, I don’t even know what Mexico looks like. I can’t “fix my country” if I know nothing of it.

  63. california is a queer state anyway.But that’s what you get when you have nancy pelosi as a rep for them she has the IQ of a terd.I really like the way this administration picks and Chooses the laws thy inforce,but that’s ok thy will me one termers you will see that too!

  64. Why dont you go to canada we could build a High-speed rail.
    It would give us all a job shoot you mexican american whantabees right into canada at about 300mph or 500mph let them deal with you!
    What you think of that?
    where is that spelling bee champ Smart Illegal Immigrant?
    WHAT’S WRONG ARIZONA GOT YOUR TONGUE?

  65. Everyone has their individual stories (Sophie) but you cant use those in this case…What about my family…my husband is doing the right thing and waiting in Mexico for his Visa to be completed…so we did all this for nothing? I feel there should be a incentive for those who are going through the process and doing the right thing by getting their papers. We arent taking the easy way out…our 4 children ages 9,6,4,3 ask for their dad everyday the last 8 months..and I tell him he is waiting for is permission ticket to come back to America and its in God’s hands. I hope the gov comes up with something fair for those who have been apart from their families waiting for their visas. We got a letter from immigration and they said he has passed everythiing (apts/medical eval) and now we have to wait 15 months for his visa because of all the people before us. So again he is not here enjoying his family,working etc he and I and the kids are suffering and desperate to be a family again. Again I hope America is fair on their choice…towards the ones who have paid lots of money and spent time away from the family to go through the proper channels and have a better secure future…

  66. Funny how that word is so over used(racist)
    It would not matter if you were from canada or any other place
    you do not get it.?

  67. They would if they had a country worth staying in.

  75. Mexico, which annually deports more illegal aliens than the United States does, has much to teach us about how it handles the immigration issue.
    Under Mexican law, it is a Felony to be an Illegal Alien in Mexico.
    Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

    in the country legally

    have the means to sustain themselves economically

    not destined to be burdens on society

    of economic and social benefit to society

    of good character and have no criminal records, and

    * contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

    The law also ensures that
    * immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor

    * foreign visitors do not violate their visa status

    * foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics

    foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported

    foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;

    those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

    The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens — and the denial of many fundamental rights to non-citizens, illegal and illegal. Under the constitution, the Ley General de Población, or
    General Law on Population, spells out specifically the country’s immigration policy.

    (Why is our great southern neighbor pushing us to water down our own immigration laws and policies, when its own immigration restrictions are the toughest on the continent? If a felony is a
    crime punishable by more than one year in prison, then Mexican law makes it a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico)?

    If the United States adopted such statutes, Mexico no doubt would denounce it as a Manifestation of American Racism and Bigotry.

    Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

    * Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)

    * Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34)

    * Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37)

    * The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.” (Article 38)

    Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:

    * Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)

    * A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual’s identity. (Articles 85 and 86)

    * A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).

    Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:

    * Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)

    * Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)

    Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:

    * Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)

    * Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)

    * Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.

    Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says,

    * “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” (Article 123)

    * Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)

    Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported. (Article 126)

    Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law

    A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)

    Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)

    All of the above runs contrary to what Mexican leaders are demanding of the United States. The stark contrast between Mexico’s immigration practices versus its American
    immigration preachings is telling. It gives a clear picture of the Mexican government’s agenda: to have a one-way immigration relationship with the United States.

    Let’s call Mexico’s bluff on its unwarranted interference in U.S. immigration policy. Let’s propose, just to make a point, that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member nations standardize their immigration laws by using Mexico’s own law as a Model.

  76. I worked in Mexico as a journalist and saw how Mexican officials continually mistreated and extracted bribes from Central Americans who flew to Mexico as their first step to crossing into the U.S. by land. ‘Coyotess’ organized these trips.
    Our borders need their own satellite to photograph document every inch of movement at all times.

  77. Is the US CODE UNCONSTITUTIONAL?

    US CODE TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER II > Part VIII > § 1325

    § 1325. Improper entry by alien

    TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER II > Part VIII > § 1324a

    § 1324a. Unlawful employment of aliens

    WE DO NOT NEED IMMIGRATION REFORM. WE NEED IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT.

    ENFORCE THE LAW!!

    We should treat immigrants like Mexico does:

    At present, Article 67 of Mexico’s Population Law says, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal … are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.”

    That would simplify things.

  78. Our great congress persons need to attend the University of Mexico law and political science schools. It is our misfortune that we are stuck with a bunch of power hungry political hacks!

  79. Let’s use Mexico’s immigration law as a starting point for a new US immigration law to be passed by our congress, while we are inforcing our 1986 law.

    did I spell everything correctly amie My little SPELLING BEE buddy!!!

  80. yes boycott california,you know thy cry about everything.
    and every time thy crap all the other states go a sniffin.
    (does it smell like something we should do)?
    we need to quit putting career populations in charge,these people do not have our best interest on their gready minds!
    that’s what got this country in the shape it’s in to start with.
    look at these clowns in office now!
    I know one thing if you keep them border doors open NO ONE IN AMERICA IS SAFE!
    including mr.ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT!

  81. Look boycotting any american state,will only hurt the economy more.
    What we need is a real president,the man we have definitely
    dont have are interest at heart.He has raised the deficit 3*
    more then bush,and bush was in office for 8 years.
    If we do not get some good people in office this country will not stand for long..

  82. You now thy find a bomb in time square new york,and they still have no interest in protecting our borders?
    california school kids wearing american flags on their shirts and mexican kids protesting it? This is America
    people have died for our flag,THAT IS A MAJOR INSULT!!
    And amie saying your dad is an illegal immigrant to better the family,is like saying I only sold heroin to pay the rent.We have laws in america for reasons beyond our comprehension.There is no argument to any of this.
    THIS IS NOT MEXICO

  83. Look at south carolina/pennsylvania thy will be passing bills also,like arizona.
    This is not mexico.
    And you will not get what you want illegals you will see.
    And you will be shown.
    And you say what you want about white people but black people are not on your side you will see that also.
    your costing us all money and that will not be tolerated.

  84. Call For Mexican Revolt In U.S surely part of the Zionist Agenda
    YOU WILL NOT WIN
    This is the United States of America.
    THIS IS NOT MEXICO

  85. I DNT UNDERSTAND WHY IS THERE SO MANY RACIST PEOPLE LIKE FOR EXAMPLE TH EDUM IDIOT THAT LEFT THE FIRST COMMENT….THAY SAY THAT IMMIGRANT COME TO THIS COUNTRY AND DNT PAY TAXES AND ALL THIS SHIT BUT THATS NOT TRUE THE TRU IS IN EVERY COMPANY WHERE U GET [AID BY CHECK THEY ALWAYS TAKE TAXES AN THEBAD THING IS THAT THEY DNT GET THAT MONEY BACK SO U SEE THAT A LOT OF EXTRA MONEY THAT IRS KEEPS AND THAT WITH OUT COUNTING THE BENEFITS THAT THEY DNT GET SO U SEE THE REASON THAT THIS COUNTRY RUNS THEY WAY IT DOES IS BECAUSE OF LATINOS LATINOS NOT SOME LAZY ASS PEOPLE WHO IS ALWAYS DEPENDING ON THE GOVERMENT GETTING FOOD STAMPS LIKE THEY ARE DISABLE OR SOMETHING U ARE A DISGRACE FOR THIS COUNTRY PEOPLE SHOULD REALLY TAKE IN COUNT WHAT ILLEGALS AS THEY CALL THEM HAVE DONE TO THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE MY PEOPLE BUILD THIS COUNTRY NOT THE REST OF U LAZY’S THAT DECIDED TO WORK FAST FOOD INSTEAD OF DOING THE BLUE JOBS

    • Before you call people lazy, you need to get the facts. Even though I don’t have a problem with Mexicans in this country, the truth is that the people you call lazy also helped to build this country and experience the same racism as you are experiencing now. These people also died, fought and educated themselves to be able to make decent wages for their families so they wouldn’t have to depend on welfare. Illegal aliens work for far less than the wage scale and have caused a backslide in the economic stability of this country. Wait until you’ve educated your children and another race enters in and starts taking your jobs and see how you feel then. I have no problem with you working in this country but try to see both sides of the picture before you spill your racism against people who have worked hard at trying to make it in this country despite racist individuals. Also go to school, yourself so you can be educated and learn how to write correctly.

  86. (U CANT DEPORT US ALL)
    We can do anything we want this IS OUR COUNTRY.
    latinos DID NOT build this country you ARE FULL OF SHIT.
    And you are called ILLEGALS because if you dont have a green card that’s what you are!
    Funny how that word is so over used(racist)
    It would not matter if you were from canada or any other place
    you do not get it.?
    AND IF MEXICANS ARE SO HARD WORKING WHY IS MEXICO A CRAPPY PLACE TO LIVE? Why come here?
    Do not think you use the word racist that you have black people on your side, we are not.
    We did not jump a wall to get here!
    And no one has built more of america then us.
    Let me go embellish my will on you country and see how mexicans behave to that?
    You are the the racist thinking we have to take you in!
    You’ll get no support from the black community.
    JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A TAN DONT BUY YOU MUCH.
    Your taking jobs,your costing us money,we do not want this invation no more then whitie.
    YOU WILL NOT WIN

    • and yet you guys are hatting on immigrants but you forget that this country was made by immigrants witch makes you guys nothing but immigrants with privileges…

    • let me get this straight!!! You are defending how blacks built this nation and you don’t stand by a latino that is hence doing the same thing only 400 YEARS LATER(kep in mind all hardships). So, with that cleared do you stand by ILLEGAL HAITIANS,JAMAICANS, or anyone from IVORY COAST-Africa..and etc,etc,etc. They are not tan and are taking money from you too!!! So, deport them too ??? White folk..should they be upset at illegals from Europe hint: Albanians, Czech, Russians, etc,etc,etc. This country needs a reform..because believe it or not, there are ILLEGALS here for 30yrs and no rights to work or remain here even if they have built their lives here!!! Stop being hatefull and afraid….because the latino will be the majority before the next decade.

  87. U.S.A Borders
    First off you have to remember this is ower first line of defenc against on comeing invasions, infestaions, contamminations ECT..
    We have to matinee the country’s security.

  89. I agree with an immigration reform to those that only reserves it, many people have lived here for many years and it’s time to make them proud americans and fixed their illegal status. Their only sin was to come here without the proper permission to enter the U.S. legally, do you think if good people that only wanted to come here and work and have a better life and support U.S. economy and enter the U.S.legally they wouldn’t have done that, they actually make easier for terrorist from the middle east to come here legally and for what. All you guys that don’t agree with an immigration reform are nothing but racist just because you are lucky to be american and lived well don’t think other people reserve it too. You should take a look in the mirror and look the ugly inside of you. We all are humans and reserve the same rights.

    (immigrants estimulate this economy …)How do they? by coming over here and sending our money to Mexico?or coming over here 7-8 months pregnant and letting the U.S.A. pay for the birth giving health insurance welfare…ya they stimulate it all right in the wrong direction! AND it’s stimulate not estimulate

    (mexicans, are fkn breaking their backs so they can feed their family) That’s what all most ever middles class American
    is trying to do for there family but illegal keep getting in our way! What’s wrong with fixing your country your so hard working it should be a snap!?….

    And it would not be any different if you came from MARS
    YOU DO NOT GET IT AND YOU ARE
    WRONG AND WILL NOT SUCCEED.

  100. I challenge anybody who is against immigration reform to come to the southwest for 10 hours a day in 100 degree weather and start pulling weeds and pick fruits and vegetables and all the other work needed in the agriculture sector! Middle class america doesnt have the guts or the will to even try! They sit in their air conditioned work places and complain about job securtiy when the non-legal immigrants have chance at taking their jobs without a SS#. The economy is fueled by our people. They pay rent, gas, electric, and water bills every month like everyone does in this country. They buy clothes, groceries, and cars. So they to pay their fair share of taxes. 70% of illegal workers have obtained an IRS number which allows them to file taxes like every working person in the country. Tell me do they see a big refund check? NO!!! The IRS keeps it because they do not have a SS#. Let me tell you what the IRS does with it, THEY HELP FUND THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM, WIC PROGRAM, AND MEDICARE. So dont you sit there and tell me that we are a drain on the economy. Go ahead ARIZONA and pass your racist law so all your agriculture production and construction work can come to a screeching halt and you can start begging us to come back and finish the job because Middle and High class America do not want to leave their air conditioned work place!!!!

    • That’s a lot of bullsh*t. Farming and agriculure has been in this country for centuries way before you came on board. Moreover, the people you call lazy farmed those lands for a century without pay. These same people, who fought for equal pay rights today are denied those same jobs because your people will work for less money. The people in this country are not afraid to get their hands dirty, or sweat to make a living. They just want to make a decent living and not have their way of life taken from them again. Nevertheless, there are many aliens that have been in this country for years and have made substantial contributions to this country. Those people deserve the right to stay here just as many other aliens from other parts of the world entered this country. But please stop generalizing that all Americans are lazy – that is not true.

  101. EZEKIEL That’s wright!
    It’s the same song and dance,every time thy open there mouths.
    We know what there going to say!
    WA WA You you won’t let us take over your country WA WA

    (after all you have done such a good job with yours!…)

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NOT LAY DOWN ANY LONGER.

  102. Obama, Reid & Pelosi took oaths to support the laws of this once great county. Now, the illegals are more important then you and I. Carter let 3 million in and said that this would never happen again. Again the Dem’s are looking for future votes and again you and I do not count in the future of this county. I do know the system, having gone through it for my wife and she is proud to show her resident card for ID. She is latin and does not feel profiled when asked, she is proud to be in America.
    Funny how everyone wants to tell America how many and what kind of immigrants it should have.

  103. Enrique
    I Hung drywall for 17 years peace working that means the more I do the more I make me and two other men average 20+ sheets a houre (48″*144″&56″*144″sizes)
    I resent you calling us lazy.I know what hard work is.
    And yes I have hung that shit in 100+ degree weather.
    And I don’t even have air conditioning in my truck for the ride home.
    You are making assumptions.
    We survived how long without you?!..
    And the ARIZONA bill you speek of is the federal law not being enforced by our slack ass government,laws like this have been on our books for the last 60years who are you to say it’s unjust?
    And I got news for you arizona is only the beginning the first of many states to make a stand.
    The bill is only racist because it goes against your agenda!
    I dont think you know the defantion of illegal , you are building a house on a crooked foundation.
    U.S.A Borders
    First off you have to remember this is ower first line of defenc against on comeing invasions, infestaions, contamminations ECT..
    We have to matinee the country’s security.
    Some of you people are getting the real issue twisted,what makes it illegal anyway
    It is hard living in alot of places in this world.
    We can not take in everyone.
    You have to understand not everyone that comes through are borders are good people.Look at 9/11!
    Everyone wants to make it personal,but thay are forgetting why we have these laws anyway.
    And for you to work 10 hours a day in 100 degree weather pulling weeds and picking fruits and vegetables working for pennies a day is slavery,who ever is getting away with paying anyone that kinda wage SHOULD BE DEALT WITH ! That’s the lazy air conditioning slob you speak of…!
    NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  104. the only reason they get away with paying sub level wages is because there illegal to start with.
    If our government had been in forcing the law that exist for the last 50 years + we would not be having this problem!!!!
    The bottom line is that all governments do not care about the people they govern and we all get to deal with the shit they cause!
    And illegals your all being played! Like everyone of us.
    it’s the people that make a grate country and the government has forgotten this.
    we are all after the same thing a better way of life..
    we should not be taking this up with each other we should take it to the people casing this mess to start with.
    and that falls in line with fix your own country!
    And leave us to fix this one!

  105. Almost nine years after terrorists murdered 2,751 people on Sept. 11, 2001, the U.S. is still facing a major threat as hundreds of illegal aliens from countries known to support and sponsor terrorism sneak across the U.S.-Mexico border…

    A Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy was shot in the stomach Friday by an undocumented immigrant off Interstate 8, according sheriff’s officials…

    Shaws say a tough immigration law like Arizona’s could have saved their beloved Jamiel who was killed by an illegal…

    Time for you go…..

  106. Illegal immigration lets face the true United States had and have the power to change any law,,if there r illegal in this country its all because the goverment know they need the immigrants 2 do the dirty jobs,,, job that americans dont’ like 2 do. I do Understand been illegal isnt right…but this has been going 4many generation that they got use to it, now they cannot control and start point all against all immigrants…Seriously people after all of this year nothing have been done dont blame immigrants 4shit.

    And who says black and immigrants r on the same side,,u guys r declaring war or what? and dont come and say immigrants r taking ur jobs, jobs that u refuse to do it face it…

  107. We want the invitation to stop.
    Secure our Borders, Enforce our Laws. All the way around canada side too.

    (now they cannot control) No they CAN control,they choose not to..They are using you as a pon,in a political game of chess.
    Sounds like you are looking for an excuse to break the law.
    I only sold drugs to pay the rent?

    And as far as jobs Yes you are taking jobs it’s simple mathematics more people looking for jobs = less jobs..
    Especially when you will work below minimum wage which is against the law all so, in most circumstances.

    (jobs that u refuse to do it face it)There is no jobs we refuse to do! WE HAVE DONE THEM ALL!..

    (And who says black and immigrants r on the same side,,u guys r declaring war or what?) ? who said this anyway? The Last Thing You Want Is War..

    (I do Understand been illegal isnt right) At least you Understand!

  108. man u guys r full of funny stuff and if mexicans didn’t build america let me guess ur mama did?? no cuz u guys like to talk alot of stuff we r all immigrants americans weren’t invited here they just took over wat right does it give u guys to be calling those ppl “illegals” “wetbakcs” and “go back 2 mexico” please dnt make me laugh u guys think living as an illegal go ahead do the dirty jobs they do I challenge U! anyone see if u gonna stand that crappy job and hold it long enough a year or more get in line to be doing those jobs they dnt live off Social Security and Getting free stuff from any of U! so shut up.. my parents worked hard and u knw wat im proud of them we r all illegals if we look far enough in time they didn’t choose to be born in that crappy corrupt country that’s called mexico but atleast they have more dignity and work hard to maintain their families.. i hate the racism that u guys got going on man we all brothers and sisters they got a nose like u a set of hands and feet and their only cirme is to come without permission to a country that knws where they live and dnt do shit because they dnt wanna admit we need cheap labor and guess wat ever since we started with this issue America has gone down ,yes whether u like it or not we need them so please dnt make me laugh cuz most of the biuldings we live in right now and we shop at are made by ILLEGALS! so please be more gratefull and show ur ignorant selves it’s embarrasing to hear u guys talk like that

    YOU ALL ARE racist YOU WANT LET US INVADE YOUR COUNTRY cuz
    Your ARGUMENT is tired cuz

  111. Nancy Pelosi spent $100,000 on food, booze and “partying”

    Nancy Pelosi travels from California three times a week on a private jet (200-seat size) at a cost to the taxpayers of $60K per flight? If so, this would total $480K per month or $5.7M per year. This comes from taxpayer money!

    Jun 15, 2010 … House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has more than quadrupled the rent on her San Francisco district office, making the $18736-a-month cost of her new office more taxpayer money!

    HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO TAKE THIS SH*T?

  112. Hillary Clinton’s The clintons are a joke.
    Bill opens the door for 9/11

    Hillary left the White House, but later had to return $200000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork she had stolen. …
    what a joke!

  113. why is obama giving $2 billon to Petrobras for off shore drilling ?
    Petrobras is a Brazilian oil company that will be drilling
    14 thousand feet below sea floor.
    BP Has a leak at 5 thousand feet below sea floor and it’s still leaking 64 days later.
    And obama has stopped all of americas off shore drilling.
    And it’s going to cost more Jobs and we will pay more for gas..
    And the republican party has hijacked the TEA PARTY will we ever be free of big business career politicians???…

  114. You know if your as loyal to this country as you were to yours
    We dont need you deserters!
    Americans dig in and deal with our problems we ride out the storm,we dont up and run! All throughout history it’s been like that,that’s what we are about!
    I do not see why you don’t fix your country?
    Your making problems in this country because you will not deal with the problems in your country.

    • Don’t be selfish. Don’t always try to build your house while your neighbor’s houses are burning. I bet u r a fat guy with nothing to do except blaming poor people.

  115. When are you people going to be satisfied when there is not enough room in this country to breathe?!
    unemployment rate at 10%+ all over this country and you people want to bring in more workers?!
    YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND

  116. YOU PEOPLE SAY WE DONT TAKE ANY JOBS, IF ONE ILLEGAL TAKES ONE JOB THAT IS ONE JOB AN AMERICAN CANT HAVE. IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT……………………………………………….

  117. My wife’s an RN. This morning she was busy at work shooting up her fellow workers with the booster for whooping cough caused by the illegal workers and patients she has to work with everyday.
    illegal workers bring disease to this country..

  118. Ken everyones house is burning you are a Moron
    You must not work for a living
    I would like to wipe my ass with your face

    • CHECK NORTHERN STATES LIKE OHIO AND IDAHO..NORTH DAKOTA…THEY HAVE FAMILIES IN WELFARE SYSTEM FOR 20 YEARS. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!!

  119. Jesse, I hope all the illegals go away too. If you want to bring history up, your people were invaders as well, who lost out. The native americans and the vikings were here before the spaniards and portuguese. The illegals need to become legal or leave, bottom line. Then those who refuse the available jobs should not receive any gov’t help. Americans are tired of illegal aliens and deadbeats.

  120. haha its funny how you white people say this is america and you guys are the main people making it…if it wasnt for illegals taking the shitty jobs that you lazy ass “AMERICANS” dont do we’d be in a worse shit hole than mexico..americans aint americans they are immigrants from europe and brittain so all this talk about america is for “AMERICANS” is bullshit cuzz its native land and “AMERICANS” took it..ok it shows u guys have power but noone gives 2 fucks if u have power… all this racism bullshit needs 2 stop cuzz isnt america supposed to be the land of the free and home of the proud and brave not land of the racist ass white people..were the hell is the core democrative values coming in now? weres diversity? weres freedom of speech weres just plain freedom? that wall was made to keep mexicans out of america ok but if every other country in the world put up fences so “AMERICANS” couldnt go through wtf would u do then?…think about it if your cut off from everybody else ur fucked…our economy would go worse then the great depresion…we would live a nightmare cuz you racist mofos dont want to lift a gate to let HARD WORKING immigrants in that get paid 1/14 of wut u do a month..”america” is benifiting all these other countries like china n japan by sending these so called american made items to be MADE in mexico china japan tawain etc…point is you guys are so confident that you have control over everything that you dont notice you need everyone else to keep yourself stable! “america” has the dumbest inhabatants lol…

  123. If mexicans are so hard working? why is mexico in the shape it’s in? Why are so many mexicans leaving?
    And mexicans are not the only one’s coming into this country
    (they are the majority)but knowing this who else Terrorist?
    And there coming across the mexican/canadian borders,(mexican border being more prevalent)This is the reason all our borders need guarded..Look the country of america lost 3000 people on that September 11 2001 attack..Mexicans and other nationalities and Americans WERE KILLED on that day..Knowing that you illegals are at risk for the next attack and there will be one,especially as long as the borders are wide open..
    You act so surprised that obama and his administration are lying to you,I got news there lying to us too..That’s is what career politician do!(You want to talk about LAZY these people have never had a JOB!)!and never will!AND THAY ARE RISKING ALL OUR LIVES FOR VOTES!POLITICS AND GREED WILL KILL THIS WORLD AND EVERY ONE IN IT..Everyone needs to stop screaming racism that just davids us as people (we are all human),and that’s what the politician want.If we all stood together there could be no more lies because THE CONSEQUENCES WOULD BE MORE SEVERE..There is racist on both sides of the fence/But it is time to stop the bull shit!
