quote: I'm pretty unpopular with my viewpoint but here goes...
quote: We all immigrated unless you are a native American. Some will argue, "but, we all immigrated legally," and this would be correct. Most of us did. The majority came through New York and were processed through the system like everyone else.
quote: But, what I do know, is many of them bust their tails like any other American trying to make a better life for themselves.
quote: I guess, but doesn't "trying to make a better life" include going through the formality of getting U.S. citizenship, opening up bank accounts/credit cards (and not only paying for things with cash) to build credit (to qualify for a car loan or mortgage), becoming fluent in English, and pushing yourself academically & professionally up the career ladder to provide more for your children?
quote: This is the amnesty argument: We can't get rid of them so let's let them all stay and legalize it. This is an incentive that encourages illegal immigration.
quote: Amnesty is never a one time thing. The US will get a flood of illegal immigrants when word gets out that it's coming.
quote: Why not reduce the dollars we spend overseas and spend some getting Mexico in line since it impacts the US?
quote: Whole cities are routinely massacred in Mexico. It's horrifying.
quote: This is why you don't announce it prior to passing. You just do it.
quote: Now my friend's new wife is attempting to set me up with her many single friends from abroad but it's not gonna' happen as I fancy American girls!
