I have a son who was a trainie, a week before he could get his insurance he became very sick. They took him to a very big hospital in Ohio. but he now has a pre-exiting illness so he can't get insurance now. He has been in 5 FIVE majior hospitals and 3 small close to home hospitals, for not less than 10 days at a time, in the length of about 4 years. Do you know how much his hospital bills are??? They all want their money now. He finely had to guit work. Now he lives with his mother. SO I THINK THE GOVERMENT NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR PEOPLE. HE NEEDS SOME HELP. A LOVING MOTHER
This is in response to Farmer in Colorado. No one here is saying that it is bad to have Legel Immigrants working for you. We are concerned about the illegal immigrants that come in to this country the wrong way. It sounds as if the people working for you are trying to do things right. But that does not change the fact that there are a lot of people entering into this country illigally.
It's comforting to know others feel as I do. My thought is if their country is so bad why don't they stay and make it better? That is how this country was formed, by resistance and revolution, blood and sacrifice. The sacrifices made by men and women to make this great country should do be trampled on to further someone's political aspirations. May God bless America!!!
I totally agree. Someone please forward this to G.W.
It is amazing!! I live in Canada and we have had an open immagration policy since shortly after WW 2. It has done the same thing here!! But the funny thing is I long haul truck drive. After 15 years of virtually trouble free border crossing, the customs officials are putting everyone through the wringer!! The terrorists that do the damage are cunning people with access to many resources to infiltrate illegally. They must screen the people from traditionally non-ally countries, and close the door on the immagration that drops our standard of living and costs us millions(if not billions) in legal and other costs. It is time to get back to Christianity and basic respect. That is the only way to "cure the problem".
I agree whole heartedly. I am a Native American, (Dakota.) I see all of these illegal imigrants all of the time, (seeing as how I am in the military,) and personally I am sick and tired of seeing signs with english subcaptions, people speaking in other languages other than English. Also where I am stationed if you dont speak spanish people really think poorly of you, and this is what I have dedicated 26 years of my life defending their butts for. I'm sorry but I have put my life on the line too many times to feel like a stranger just going to Walmart or out to eat somewhere. These are just my opinions so please forgive me if I ticked somebody off. Michael C. Perry USNR TAR
I'm from Alabama and we are also overrun with Mexicans.Looks like they might as well make Mexico the 51th State.I cant speak Spanish & never will.
Do you think that the Mexican people are stupid?? They will come over here and work at low paying jobs until they can find higher paying jobs. They will get educations and their many children will become highly educated and take away your job and your childs job. If unemployment were not so high in the U.S. so much of time it may be a different story. If anyone commits an illegal act they should be punished for it not rewarded. The U.S. is not that nice to citizens here - citizens here are punished (even extremely harshly) when they do illegal acts.
I am half American. Can I come and live in the USA.(NO). But you let in all the other looneys. I wish I knew how to come and live. They dont like American Warbabies and we are not wanted by the USA. I was born here in New Zealand to a USMarine in 1944 to a New Zealand mother. I was adopted out age 2yrs. I searched for 27yrs for my father to miss him by 3yrs. He had comitted suicide due to ill health. I am totally devastated as his two sons. My brothers will not assist me in becoming a US citizen as they do not want to upset their mother as she is jealous of me. The US government wont have anything to do with its Warbabies and we are just told to go away. I would like more than anything to come and live in the USA. I am a good person. Not like thousands that seem to be made welcome. My husband and I have good work records and completely honest. But I have been asking the American Embassy here for about 15yrs for my citizenship. But they wont accept me even though my mother has added my father to my birth certificate. So much for the USA. It wont even take care of its own kids. Lost out here My name is Jan
WE ALL NEED TO JOIN THE SAME BANDWAGON AND STOP PAYING TAXES FOR AWHILE, THEN THIS HYPOCRTICAL SOB FOR A PRESIDENT MIGHT WAKE UP. VOTE DEMOCRAT!
May I suggest you e-mail President Bush, your U.S. Senators and your Congressional Representative stating,that you are opposed to any type or form of AMNESTY for Illegal immigrants! I was talking to a Sherrif of our county. He stated that these illegal immigrants are criminals. They are breaking our laws. I think this is causing many of our beloved countries problems! DM, Kansas
Charity begins at HOME. That's what I was taught. I'm not looking for charity. My husband & I work hard to keep are nose above water. It's very discouraging to watch these immigrants live high on the hog while we rake & scrape to make ends meet. What's worse yet, is knowing that if we ever get down, we will get zero help. Will we ever again have a goverment whom will work for the american people? If their illegal, send them back instead of supporting them. Then they can lower our taxes so we can have abetter quality of life.
hello, i have been reading some of the comments posted here. i both aggree and disaggree. i was born in Mexico, came to the United States when i was 8 years old. i speak both Spanish and English. my daughters speak Spanish, English, and French. my youngest brother speaks the same and Russian. he and i are both in the U.S. Army. i served in the war in Iraq. i believe that many of the problems in this country are home-made not brought here by immigrants...although, i don't think most of the responses here are not from Native-Americans. i wonder how they felt when the ships just kept landing and the white-man just went all over their land. we need to stop placing blame on others and start looking to ourselves. we need to take responsibility for not finding employment. can't find a job? why not serve your country? i do. and i wasn't born here. i don't fly the Mexican, or any flag, but if i choose to, the Constitution allows me to do so freely. i pay for my freedom....AND YOURS. I AM NOT THE ONLY IMMIGRANT SERVING IN THE U.S. MILITARY. MANY NATIVE BORN U.S. CITIZENS DON'T WANT TO WORK, AND THEY SURE DON'T WANT TO SERVE...I, A MEXICAN, AM DOING A JOB, LIKE OTHER MEXICANS, THAT MANY CANNOT OR WILL NOT DO. MY BROTHERS-IN-ARMS TO MY LEFT AND TO MY RIGHT, MANY FROM THE U.S., DON'T SEE ME AS A MEXICAN TRYING TO TAKE THEIR JOBS, THEY SEE ME AS A SOLDIER WHO HAS RISKED HIS LIFE AT THEIR SIDE. I SEE THEM THE SAME WAY. THE ALAMO IS HISTORY. LET'S LEARN FROM OUR PAST AND GROW. LAST I CHECKED, CALIFORNIA WAS PART OF MEXICO, STOLEN DURING THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN WAR. WE ARE NOT INNOCENT HERE. LET THE ONE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. SSG JIMMY HARRISON U.S. ARMY
ONE LAST THING. I HAVE NEVER BEEN CALLED A BABY KILLER BY A MEXICAN, BUT BY "AMERICANS". SSG JIMMY HARRISON
The reason politicians dont stop Illegal Immegration is very simple. Pure and simple, both national parties want their vote and are willing to rape this nation to do it. Both national parties from the local level up to the Congress and Presidency want their vote and will buy it anyway they can.
THE COMMENTS I AM READING. IT IS GOOD THAT THE US IS A PLACE THAT YOU HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THE LAND OF OPERTUNITY.BUT A PLACE THAT YOU CAN MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT A MEXICAN. BUT!!! YOU CAN'T A JEW OR A BLACK OR YOU WILL BE TATOOED A BIGGOT,RACIAST OR ANTISEMATIC OR WHATEVER. THE DEMOCRATS LIFTED THE EMBARGO'S. FOR THE INDUSTRY TO LEAVE THIS COUNTRY NOT BUSH.SINCE THE 1800'S THE LIBERALS HAS STARTED THIS PROBLEM AND IT WILL CONTINUE AS LONG AS THEY ARE IN EXISTANCE. MEXCIAN DEMOCRATS LETS THEM COME OVER AND DRIVE TRUCKS IN THE US NOT HAVING TO BE ABLE TO READ ENGLISH OR TAKE A DRIVING TEST. NOW IF THEY ARE CITIZENS THEY'LL HAVE TO PAY TAXES. THEN CAN LEARN THE WAYS OF THE US PEOPLE.THEY WILL GO HOME AND START UNIONS AND RAISE THE WAGES AND ASK FOR UNEMPLOYMENT, SOCIAL SECURITY, AND MEDICAL,WORKMANS COMP. BENIFITS AND ABUSE THEM LIKE THE PEOPLE HERE HAS AND DRIVE THE COMPANYS BACK TO THE US. AS FOR THE DEMOCRATS STUDY THE CIVIL WAR AND HOW THE DEMOCRATS. HAS ALWAYS LIED TO THE PUBLIC FOR THERE OWN GAIN. THEY DO AWAY WITH RELIGION AND FORGET ABOUT THE MAJORITY FOR THE MINORITY GROUPS. AND THE RICH. WELL, WITHOUT THE MONEY OF THE RICH WE WOULD NOT HAVE NOTHING. IF THEY DONT SPEND IT. WHERE IS IT GOING TO COME FROM. I DO AGREE THOU. ALL IMIGRANTS SHOULD BE SENT HOME IF YOUR NOT NATIVE AMERICAN LEAVE. GO HOME WHERE EVER IT MIGHT BE THEN THERE WILL BE PLENTY HERE. LOOK AT HISTORY IN 1859 PEOPLE THOUGHT THE SAME AS A LOT OF YOU. NOT ALLOWING THE BLACKS TO COUNT BUT THREE FIFTH OF A VOTE AND NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE THE FREE LANDS OF THE TIME. LETS ALL BE BIGGOTS RACIAST AND LIARS. LIARS ARE ALSO DEMOCRATS. I AM A POOR NATIVE AEMRICAN FROM SOUTH GEORGIA.
I just heard on the evening news how MANY jobs were given to the Mexicans and how many Americans...The folks from Mexico have 600,000 jobs(new) as opposed to Americans who have 37,000+. What's wrong with this picture? THEY don't pay taxes, yet, they're taking Social Security out of their checks. Am i understanding this correctly? I then take it to mean that they can collect their Social Security?? Everyone NEEDS to tell G.W. what's wrong in this country!
I don't think this subject has anything to do with Christianity....This forum is the people speak..I have to agree with the others who said our borders should be closed. IF immigrants come in, they should adhere by OUR laws...They're given a drivers license with no questions asked...In the state of Indiana, we have to have 6 or 7 pieces of ID to even get an ID...Immigrants, if allowed in, should SPEAK the English language...Our tv and radio stations should be in English...Spanish should'nt be required for OUR kids to learn... After 9-11, all borders would have been closed, immigrants sent to whereever they came from, and Middle Eastern persons SHOULD have been detained and shipped OUT. They did it to the Japanese who were here when Pearl Harbor was bombed. No foreign trade to other countries, and especially the ones who refused to help with Iraq. Foreign aid should be eliminated, as well. In our OWN country, there're homeless and hungry people. Our citizens have to go out of the country to adopt children. What about our OWN children? They deserve LESS? I can't comprehend the government's position. We train terrorists to wipe out 3,000 people....but, let the aliens stay and learn MORE. I'll get off my bandwagon.....
I legally immigrated to this,the greatest country in the world nearly forty three years ago. I was,at my thirteenth month,drafted into the Army,fell in love with the service and subsequeuntly made it a career. I became a very fortunate and proud U.S. Citizen during my fifth year. I did two tours in Germany and one year in Viet Nam. I think that John F.Kerry is a bogus opportunist who opted to accept three purple hearts just to leave Viet Nam after a lousy four months to join the likes of Jane Fonda and cause the death of some of my compatriots by his vile Servicemen rantings. Real heroes were guys like Oliver North who were wounded four times but refused more than two purple hearts because he wanted to stay with his man the whole year. But that's another story. In recent years I have become really angry and appalled to realize how our weak-kneed politicians and beaurocrats have been allowing all sorts of lawless entries and judjes who demand support of such chaos with tax payers' money. Our freedom is in gravely threatened.
No truer words ever spoken. We have homeless, yes some by no choice of their own or low income families that can't make it, but our jobs & housing benefits or assistance is going to immigrants. Just in my area alone, churches, county & state offices have purchased houses for all. Several of these were & are illegal immigrants. Yet people who were born & raised here, that have fallen on bad times for medical or economic reasons can get very little or NO help. What's wrong with this picture!!
I cannot understand what the president was thinking, maybe he should work in the mines, on a farm, or any hard work for fifty years, then try to draw his social security and are told you are not old enough the age just went up, but these illegal people come into this country take our job's, never pay anything in and still receive things that we have worked for all our life, will someone please explain this to me. The only hope I can see for America is to get Bush out of the white house, I don't care who we elect, but he need's to go. A woman who watched her parents struggle all their lives just to survive and now we are going to give it away for free get real we need to wise up or there will be no more America!
I am a Police Officer in a small Indiana City were we are seeing an increasing population of Assian and Mexican workers. The same is happening for the surrounding communities. Many get in trouble and Many do not speak english and from what i have observed the places they work, they are almost slave labor. Someone is usually in charge of them and finds housing and transpertation and acts as their interprator. And what makes it worse they are not liked localy as we are loosing many of our factory jobs headed to Mexico "(remeber that sucking sound of our jobs headed south)". A note to our Elected Officials Help Keep Our JOBS or you might be looking for a new job soon too!
"I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN" My wife and I landed in the U.S.A. 47 years ago. Two months short of 5years I pledged allegiance, and and became an American. I needed enough money to last me 6 months, a job to come to and an American as a sponsor, before we were allowed entrance, with all the privileges allowed except the right to vote. We had to know the "Bill of rights" a good grasp of government procedure and speak English. I enjoyed my status, the freedom and the right to be a part of the community, because it was my duty and a chance to be involved with others that had the same vision. It does not sit well with me to have to look at areas where signs are on small business' owned by new residents, bringing their country here, enjoying the new life and still be separate. We have to many communities where residents cannot speak the language to even give directions if a true American is looking to find a specific location. When I hear "no know" I have to turn in disgust. I have heard that schools offer language courses and the foreigners think it is nothing but a party.
Illegal immigration, along with the outsoucing of jobs has been a burr in my saddle for some time. I'm retired - but stay involved for the same reason I spent 5 years in the Navy during the Korean war - for the good of society as a whole. That was not for the multi-nationals, or illegals who are in no way interested in becoming good, involved American citizens - just mainly for the wages, etc. Our immigrant parents came legally, and paid their dues - they did not join a PAC to petition for benefits. This issue represents the largest gap between the Politicians and the voters. Different figures, but something like 75 to 85% of voters against - something like 14% of politicians against. And neither party seems to understand that they are to represent American citizens first. Course, when pols represent the multi-nationals, they're just working for the ones who own them, I suppose.
I also think that Ilegal inmigration is not right, but you people have to think that employers are looking for people to work here in the united states and most of the time the americans just leave the jobs because they think that they are too hard, I'm serious peolple, low income people or unemployed people are LAZY if you don't have a job and your offered a job that would pay you at least minimum wage I think that by common sense you should take, at least to have something to bring to the table, thats why I beleive that inmigrants are important, they are not taking jobs from american, they are taking jobs that americans don't want to take why? because they know whats not to eat for days, they appreciate what is a dollar, they weren't spoiled as we were, I understand that some of them don't speak english but that because most of the time this people has to work 2 full time jobs, trust me, this doesn't leave you any time to go to school, besides that, america without illegal inmigrants wouldn't be as productive as it is now, I hope you people understand this now and instead of complaining about inmigrants taking jobs from americans take your fat asses out there and get a job, because there are tons of jobs out there, you just have to apply for them!!!!
Anyone who lives in this country sees swarms of illegals. All the have to do is have a child here and the child is "entitled" to financial assistance as in food and medical care. None of us like that. However, there is a flip side to the coin. When I was growing up we picked beans, strawberries or whatever was being harvested. Now we have youngsters who think that they are worth more than the minimum wage. Someone has to do that work. Are your youngsters out there? I heard one person tell his sons that they weren't "going to work with those ------ pickers". You got it! He simply told his kids that the were too good to rub shoulders with people who will take the risk to come here to do what some us consider too menial. My thoughts are that anyone who comes here to work should have to pay for a work permit. No Social Security # to issued simply the privilege to work here with a permit number. And while we're at it...why isn't our Social Security Administration enforcing the law...it is illegal to use a social security number that isn't yours. If you're illegal that should be enough to send you home. It you're a citizen you should be penalized. The issue is that some of our problems are our own creation. Obviously we continue to elect people who have no concern for our well-being. But, if we don't want the illegals to do the work we "won't do" or don't want our childen to do...put up or shut up!
I was just researching on the Holocaust and read a lot about it. I, for some reason, got sent to your page and by reading your comments, I realized why this page is connected to the NAZI pages. You people are just as full of hatred as the NAZIS were during WWII. You complaint so much about Illegal people yet, you don't do anything to better yourselves. You cry out loud that Illegal people come here to take your jobs away, but in reality they are just doing what American workers don't want to do. Yes it si true that problably over half a million people came into the US Illigally last year. Surprisingly none of them has done anything to harm the US. On the other side 10 people came LEGALLY into the US and killed thousands when they drove 2 planes into the twin towers.
We are a nation of immigrants and must never forget our roots and why we are here. It is foolish to think we can close our borders and bury our heads in the sand.I support our President. I believe in our President. I agree we need to better monitor our borders to know who is coming AND going. I believe we need to wake up.
i think that what all this people are doing isn't right and if people dont have jobs it's not because there isn't any jobs it's because they are lazy an they depend on the goverment black african americans and white people are not going to do the jobs that a hard working mexican would for example cutting grass, working in a warehouse working in hotels picking cotton in fileds in the hot weather. but unfortunately we have alot of ignorate people that dont see that but we also have the good african american and white people that have goods hearts and that help out alot of immigrants
Illegal immigration is a serious problem. Living in southern California, I see the results of this problem every day. Electing Kerry is not the solution. First, he will do whatever is politcally expediant at that moment. More important is the history of the Democratic party. In California, a state with one of the largest influx of illegal immigrants, the Democratic controlled legislature has voted down every piece of legislation dealing with this problem. That is, unless it gave more benefits or rights to illegal immigrants. Mr. Bush is wrong on this issue. There is no doubt about that. However, what is important here, is the big picture. Which of these two men is best overall for the country? Dont vote for Kerry based on this single issue.
The best action to take is send your lawmakers e-mails,faxes,or phone calls when immigration bills are coming up for a vote and let them know you are watching them and know what is going on. I sent faxes last weekend to Kentucky lawmakers because there were immigration bills coming up for votes. This country cannot continue to support the whole world as apparently we've been trying to do. How about giving illegels social security benefits with LESS quarters to work than we have too? This is another proposals our gifted lawmakers are proposing.When was Fox elected one of our leader?Everything he proposes goes on the agenda.BJWebb
All of you are a bunch of spoiled, lazy and ignorant people. Ilegal immigrants DO PAY TAXES and NEVER get them back. They take the jobs that NONE of you want. So, shut up and get informed before saying anything regarding the illegal immigration issues.
YOU ARE MISTAKEN IF YOU THINK ONLY IMMIGRATION BY ILLEGALS CAUSES THE LOST OF JOBS HERE IN THE US....WHO TRAINED ALL THE WORKERS IN INDIA TO TALK WITH AMERICAN ACCENTS SO PEOPLE WERE FOOLED INTO THINKING WHEN THEY CALLED THE IRS THEY WERE TALKING TO SOMEONE IN THE US??? WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENRON, WHO RIPPED OFF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITH THEIR OIL PRICES, WHICH COMPANIES MOVED THERE OPERATIONS OUT OF THE US BUT KEEP HEADQUARTERS HERE SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO PAY DUTY ON THEIR PRODUCTS COMING IN...SURE NOT ILLEGAL ALIENS....WHO GAVE US FALSE INFORMATION AND LEAD OUR TROOPS INTO A WAR WHERE WE ARE FOOTING THE BILLS WITH FUNDS THAT SHOULD BE CARING FOR OUR ELDERLY, SICK AND HANDICAPPED...NOT ILLEGAL ALIENS....THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE ILLS OF OUR ECOMONY BUT THEY ARE ONLY A SMALL PART...IMMMIGRANTS COME INTO THIS COUNTRY, THEY GET GOOD JOBS ARE NOT CITIZENS, CAN WORK 5 YEARS BEFORE THEY HAVE TO PAY TAXES...I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM TAXED FROM THE DAY THEY GET HIRED IN THE POST OFFICE OR GOVERMENT 'JOB....MAKING ILLEGALS LEGAL WILL ONLY HURT THIS COUNTRY...THE UNDERGROUND THAT IS SNEAKING THEM OVER THE BORDER WILL NOW PROSPER WITH ILLEGAL CITIZENSHIP PAPERS....
who do you people think you are? god!!!!! this is gods world and we are all gods children to rome his world freely. you people are like the kkk against everyone who is not a true american, well i am a born and raised true blooded american, and i welcome everyone into my homeland. maybe people would not hate us so much if we welcomed them in with open arms and made them legal so they could grow some american pride and not want to harm the land he's so proud of. all i ask is that you put yourself in their shoes, and for a moment wander what their coming from or what their going to, are their hearts breaking, are they dying and want to spend some time on soil, not just any soil but freedom soil.
Hey if the U.S.people would pick a decent president then maybe they would have a much better country....Bush is killing all the young lads and also sending the people's money to repair what he has destroyed!..God Bless America...someone had better.
I think that immigrants from all over the world should be screened. If they follow the religion of ISLAM they should be banned from the US. We should not allow our nation to be taken from the inside out by these cowards who profess peace but bring only HATRED and DEATH. Currently in America there are mosque's (Islamic churches) that preach hate against America and Americans! Against the very country that gave them religious freedom. Find it hard to believe? I did too!! I used to be the good American who believed in religious freedom and I thought ISLAM was a good religion (I mean, how could a 1400 year old religion be bad??) ISLAM is nothing but a perversion of religion created by the great pervert Mohammed. I don't know why, given the current world situation, you would not believe me, but if you think I'm just spewing hate check out WWW.FAITHFREEDOM.ORG for a more articulate view point. How many people, not from Islamic countries, become terrorists? I'll tell you...Not very many!! You will find a disproportionate number of islamists become terrorists. Ever wonder why? Read the Koran, read the Hadith's. It's all about hate! It's all about converting the world to islam. It's all about killing those that refuse to convert to islam. I'm a Christian and a soldier. I defend America and our beliefs, but I will not defend ISLAM as a religion.
This email is to webpage admins: I see you didn't post my comments from yesterday. I wrote the anti-Islam email. I don't know why you didn't post my message and I guess I never will. But before you edit/delete posts like mine do some research on your own. Be very careful what you censor. Visit the web site I sent (www.faithfreedom.org). It will open your eyes to the real reason terrorism exists. I thank you for providing a forum for us to talk. Please be fair in what you post. God Bless you!
I read this in a post. "Immigration is good, it is what created our Great Country. Yes everyone is welcome. Do it the legal way !!!! I have a commment about that My mother tried for 5 years to do it the legal way at the US embassy in Mexico, they denied her everytime she tried, all she wanted was to get a job and help my sister, brother and I to get a better meal. She struggled for many years because our father died and we had no one to go to. She even thought about going to Canada and become a Canadian citizen so she could go into the States easier, I guess Canadians are more welcome than us. She had to make up fake documents to make the US govt think she had a stable, well payed job in Mexico and finally they gave her a visa to visit the United States. She stayed instead, work her ass off as a nanny and got my brothers and I here a year later. Without insulting anyone I think people should worry more about those terrorists over seas than us mexicans. It's good that you worry about illegal immigrants but all I hear about is mexican people instead of terrorists from the middle east. During the first months of the 9/11 tragedy I saw on the news how 4 of the Alkeida terrorists that were in the jumbo planes even received their residency a few weeks even after they were dead, that's the sort of thing that just makes you go "WOW". My name is Luis Mendoza. I am 29 years old. And I am a Los Angeles High Way Patrol Officer.
Mexicans this, mexicans that!!! come on guys, is that all you can come out with? My background is jewish and I was borned in California, I'm reading all of your comments and you sound like nazi's no offense, you really do, that's how it all started in Germany when they blamed the jews for everything. My grandfather migrated to Mexico to get away from the Nazi horrors, his plan was to later on move to the States but he fell in love with Mexico and his people so much for helping him out that he stayed there. My father moved to the states in the 70's so I was born here. Ari Agbabian Illegal Aliens are American People Main Page too.
Wow!!, this is very strange, i was looking for something about the Holocaust and i was browsing and browsing reading about it for my term paper and i was taken here, wow.. you people are scary! and I'm sure most of you are decent folks but everything you are saying about illegal immigrants the Nazi's said about the jewish. That's creepy and scary at the same time.
Lets give the Mexicans a break for a second. I don't know of a single American losing their job to a Mexican. And regardless of the Mexican "threat" to our country don't you people realize the bigger threat? You all just glossed over my comments and kept bitching about some Mexican menace. Wake the hell up from your slumber!!! Mexico isn't trying to kill us. Islam is trying to kill us. YES, THAT INCLUDES YOU! Please, Please, Please do some research on why the middle east hates us. I'm posting my earlier comments again for those who glossed over them. Follow the link to the website and learn. Learn America learn!!! Earlier posted comments follow: I think that immigrants from all over the world should be screened. If they follow the religion of ISLAM they should be banned from the US. We should not allow our nation to be taken from the inside out by these cowards who profess peace but bring only HATRED and DEATH. Currently in America there are mosque's (Islamic churches) that preach hate against America and Americans! Against the very country that gave them religious freedom. Find it hard to believe?

Illegal is illegal. There is a right and wrong way to do many things. Entering a country illegally is wrong; but let's not forget. Most people in America are from other countries unless they were Native Americans or their ancestors were living here before we even became "America." We need to celebrate our diversity, along with trying to control our borders. The problem is one of control and legality, not discrimination. I hope we can all keep this in mind.
I am totally against illegal people coming across our borders, I say if there pg when they come across then send them back, that is there way of staying having a baby and becoming legal citizens,, i think that stinks....they get our welfare and money and medical and a person who lives here cannot get help at all.....They need to take care of the Americans first.....
