Barack Obama announces new immigration laws granting illegals de facto amnesty

August 19, 2011

  Note: This is an article from August of 2011, for my post on Barack Obama’s announcement on June 15th, 2012 please go here.

    During a speech to La Raza on July 25th Barack Obama admitted that “the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting,” and yesterday the temptation proved too strong for him to ignore any longer because he announced that his regime ease up on its enforcement of immigration laws.

  According to the new laws illegal immigrants will no longer face a deportation hearing simply because they were arrested for being in the United States illegally unless they have committed an additional crime. So instead of deporting illegal immigrants before they have a chance to commit a crime against an American citizen the regime will wait until an American citizen has been victimized by an illegal alien before starting deportation hearings. In other words the Obama regime feels as if it is more important to protect an illegal alien from deportation than protecting American citizens from a potential crime perpetrated by an illegal alien.

  In all reality this is not a new policy because it has been in effect for awhile now because, as I wrote about in this post almost a year ago to this very date, the Department of Homeland Security has already been granting de facto amnesty by refusing to prosecute illegal aliens and deport them unless they have committed an additional crime.

  But Barack Obama has been feeling the heat from immigration groups who feel as if the president hasn’t done enough to grant illegal aliens amnesty because this DHS program has slipped under the radar screen; so Barack Obama made a calculated political gamble and decided it was more politically expedient for him to admit to the American people that his regime is granting de facto amnesty, so he finally came clean on his regime’s true policies hoping that this would smooth things over with the groups who told them they wouldn’t support him unless he made a move on immigration reform.

  Barack Obama and the Department of Justice are sworn to protect and defend the laws of the United States–even the laws with which they might not agree–but the DOJ is already selectively defending the laws of the nation. The Obama regime has already admitted that it would no longer defend DOMA and now comes word that the Obama regime will not actively enforce immigration laws. If any president does not agree with the laws of the land the proper procedure would be for the president to go to the Congress and ask them to pass a law that he could support and defend. But the Congress has not been able to grant Barack Obama his amnesty wish so he has taken it upon himself to ignore the law, and selectively enforce immigration policy.

  Arizona grew frustrated with the federal government’s unwillingness to enforce immigration law so that state passed a law which was virtually the same as federal immigration law. And for their efforts they were greeted with a lawsuit from the federal government because it has been well established that it is within the jurisdiction of the federal government to enforce immigration law. And now Arizona’s concerns have been justified as the federal government has decided not to enforce the immigration laws even though the DOJ is responsible for enforcing these laws.

  The Obama regime did not like the laws so instead of waiting for the Congress to change the laws the president has decided to change the laws on his own.

  As unemployment rises on a daily basis, and as more and more Americans are looking for work every week, Barack Obama has decided that it was more important to let illegal aliens take jobs away from Americans who would otherwise take these jobs if they were available than to open up these job positions by sending illegal aliens home. If you are an American citizen and you are waiting for Barack Obama to come up with a job plan for you…..well, you are going to have to wait until after Labor Day because Barack Obama doesn’t think you are as important as gaining the Hispanic vote.

    More American citizens out of work and more illegal votes for obama. Makes sense to me. And one additional crime will lead to one more leading to more and leading to still more. What a policy – allow illegals to commit crimes therefore assuring their support. Despicable.

      It is a double win for Obama, he gets more people on the goverment doel and more voters at the same time.

        that cigar does not make you look any smarter…………these new rules are designed to make the job for the BCIS more efficient and still collect taxes of those here until their cases are handled by the gov…a smart solution BUT,,,,,,,you being an average citizen I don’t expect you to be able to stretch your brains to that level of reasoning!!

        I didn’t realize the cigar was supposed to make me look smarter. I enjoy smoking a cigar every once in awhile, that is all. Perhaps I should change my picture to show what I normally smoke–a tobacco pipe, that would really get under the skin of people like you.

        Steve, apparently Ron J. doesn’t realize how uninformed he really is. I guess ignorance is bliss. He wonders why we get upset with immigrants coming here ILLEGALLY and then staying until this administration can figure out a loophole to slip them thru to become legals??? I can’t imagine why anyone that has come here thru the proper channels is not screaming about this. What about the ones that can’t get their papers done because of all the illegals that cut in front of them in line? This is crazy. Also, I was not aware you were trying to “appear” smarter with the stoggie, thought you were already pretty intelligent.

      • October 14, 2011 8:57 pm

        Well thank you for the compliment Lou, I was not aware of that fact either. But I do get a kick out of it when the cigar angers people on the left because it shows them to be intolerant. You wouldn’t believe some of the comments I got on the cigar a year or so ago, it was pretty nasty.

    • August 23, 2011 12:18 pm

      Obama is not allowing them to commit crimes. what he basically meant if you know what you’re talking about is “Why take out the illegals that aren’t doing any crime and not focuse on the real crime makers.”

      • August 23, 2011 7:26 pm

        You apparently do not know what the word “illegal” means because being illegal is a crime, why wait until they commit and additional crime–which would be avoided with deportation–has been committed against an innocent American. Look no further than the recent news from Milton Massachusetts for the latest example of what can happen when illegals are allowed to stay in this country.

        I agree with Lisa. Obama is trying to make this country a better place. Steve why don’t you think of it this way (1) if illegals become legal they would have to pay penalties to the government increasing USA financially do the math of how many illegal immigrants there are in america. (2) they become legal more jobs people start working and they pay taxes its a double win for USA if you think about it. This country was built on the basis for better life of all humans. Why dont you tell me one thing STEVE when this country was made werent they illegal to come into this country and TAKE IT AWAY FROM NATIVE AMERICANS….you cant deny it since its true originally this country belongs to Native Americans you should think twice before labeling someone illegal since maybe your ancestors came to this country as illegal right? Immigrants means when someone leaves their home to go to a better place for their family. Everyone in this world is in titled to do that. SO who are we to label them as illegals cause our ancestors have done that somewhere in their life. Steve dont take me wrong bro but even though this country is free and equal to everyone we find excuses to not let that happen depending…we still label people not by the color but by a Green card or certificate. That my friend is wrong i hope you understand. thank you for your time!!!

      • September 10, 2011 8:56 pm

        Just like every other country in the world today we won our land by fighting for it. It may sound harsh but this land was ceded to us as consessions for defeat, this does not make us different than any other country. Now that the lans is ours we have set the rules for immigration; you either come here legally and are welcomed with open arms, or you come here illegally and must pay the consequences.

        Lisa, coming here illegally is a crime in and of itself. Why is that not getting thru to you? It IS a crime, plain and simple, before anything else is ever done, there is a strike against you coming here without doing it properly. Why is one person more “special” over another to be able to get away with doing this? I must be missing something in your mindset, because I can’t believe this is how you see things.

      • January 15, 2012 10:19 pm

        LISA I THANK YOU ARE VERY RIGHT,AND YES IT IS A CRIME FOR BEING HERE ILLEGALLY BUT I THANK IF THEY WERE ABLE AND ARE HERE THEY ARE VERY SMART AND NEED TO BE LEFT ALONE.AND THE GOV NEEDS TO PUT FENCE UP FOR NO MORE TO GET OVER,BUT LEAVE THE ONES ALONE THAT ARE HERE ALREADY.THEY COME HERE TRYING TO BETTER THERE LIVES AND HAS STARTED FAMILIES HERE JUST LIKE A AMERICAN AND WORK THERE BUTTS OFF TO TAKE CARE OF THERE FAMILIES.I SAY GO OBAMA YOU ARE DOING GOOD HELP THE ONES THAT ARE HERE.

        I TRULY do not care what any of you bleeding hearts say or think. You obviously have not had to deal with these illegals. They are taking our jobs; there are no jobs left for people in the home building process because all the mexicans have taken them, from concrete work to roofing. I am taking care of our grown daughter and two grandchildren because she can not find a job and we don’t believe in using the government to take care of us like so many do. We took my seriously ill granddaughter to emergency room and while we were there; we heard the people in the next room talking. The hospital told an illegal family not to worry about the bill; the government would pay his insurance for 6 months and then they could reapply for another six months. In the meantime; my husband and I had to pay cash from our of our savings which we worked hard all of our lives for. We don’t mind using our money for our children; but it is aggrevating to see illegals use up all of our government resources while we strugle to get by. We don’t get food stamps which my children could and we don’t use medicaid; which they could. We work hard for what we have and now we are having to pay for their medical bills, food and education. I don’t care what anyone says; that is not right. We live in the country and my 8 year old granddaughter was riding her horse on the back of our property when we saw her horse acting up. We went to see; and there were two mexicans out there laying in the grass eating. They had no right to be anywhere on our property. The next week there were two different ones sitting out in front of our place watching my graddaughters playing in the creek. They worked for the oil company and when my husband confronted them, they could not speak english. Now they want to take our second ammendments away. If they are here illegally; do we know if they are killers or rapists? NO! I say they go home! and I do not care what anyone else says. Are you going to sit around and let them hurt your children? Not me!!! I want someone with some balls to do something about it now.

        Steve, technically Spain invaded Mexico, they “conquered” a perfectly autonomous civilazation…the point is not even that, the problem here is that, yes Illegal aliens are getting a chance to become legal.
        Most of them have gone the USA to seek better oportunities, wasn’t that what the pilgrims attempted to do when the fled from great britain? and Spain , And Italy and Russia and everyother country that actually populated the ALL MIGHTY USA????? everyone other than africans (who were brought by force). Didn´t they come seeking a better life??
        Remember that south of the USA there´re over 20 countries,form which come bolivians, venezuelans,colombians, etc… as well as mexicans to take are jobs that no one else wants to do, such as: domestic, construction, agriculture,etc.Jobs that Italian,Germans, Russians, (and probably your ethnic group),came to do when they came seeking for a better way of life.
        Yes, I agree that most of illegal aliens are there because in their countries they lack oportunities, wasn´t that what the USA was built on, if not please let me know so I can eliminate the history that I have in my head.

      • June 16, 2012 8:56 pm

        The problem I am addressing is twofold: First, these people did not come here legally and are being rewarded while those who are trying to come here legally are the ones being hurt by this. Why do things the right way if you can do things the wrong way and achieve your goal quicker? And second, and most importantly, the main point here is that the president of the United States is doing this on his own without the approval of the Congress and the constitution was ste up to ensure one person did not have too much power. My problem is with the way the president went about doing this moreso than the actual law he created because he doesn’t have the power to make laws.

If these kids came here with their mother and Father and have Graduated High school, gone through College or University. Why should they not have the opportunity to work?

        There is a huge difference between people who came here legally as you did and people who came here illegally. I do not have a problem with immigrants and I don’t understand how you could have come to that conclusion, I have a major problem with illegal immigrants.

Do you see how coming across the border in the middle of the night as compared to doing the paperwork and arriving with everything in order might be the difference between illegal and legal? If not, then there is no use in trying to explain it. Once again, the color of ones skin has never been brought up here or their nationality, except by the “cheap shotters”. For some reason, it is so easy to drop an attack and then take off. I see how it is now. Who is the real “bigot” here?

      That is ignorant not all Illegal aliens are criminals, what about the citizens that mess up their own countries? Or are too lazy to get jobs? Or don’t even qualify to work? Majority illegal aliens that I know are earnest and do everything the legal way because they want a better life. Also, how can an illegal immigrant even vote? I know a lot of citizens that are too lazy to work & just want to depend on the government or don’t have the skills nor knowledge to do a job. Obama is thinking about the young generation that bust their ass just like any other kid in school to graduate and go to college but once they graduate high school they cant get jobs or even make it to college just because of their status in the U.S. Doesn’t that seem unfair? The poor kid doesn’t have a fighting chance even with their smarts.

        Yes this is true, I do know people that are illegal in the country have kids, collect welfare, work in meat plants as managers getting up to $22.00 an hour this is in california, they never get traced because there is no way they can be, meanwhile american citizens get punished for working even part time they dont qualify for any help if they ever need it, see illegal commit crimes like driving under the influence, burglary and assault with deadly weapon and I am saying this because i had witnessed it, they dont even do jail time they get deported and a month later the’re back again, so why do they get special treatment while american citizens are doing everything by the book?they do not come to do jobs we don’t want to do, of course they won’t take the job of a lawyer, a teacher or anything like that but they do take sooooo many jobs american citizens need and be willing to do,this is just the facts.

      • February 2, 2012 9:28 pm

        Illegal means a law has been broken, and if a law has been broken it means a crime has been committed. And if a crime has been committed it means the person who committed the crime is a criminal. So if a person enters the country illegally it DOES in fact mean he or she is a criminal whether you want to admit it or not.

      Thank you Gracie. You know she is right. Illegal immigants do take jobs but they take the jobs that us Americans aren’t willing to do. I mean c’mon are you really up to clean middle school bathrooms. I don’t thinks so. So stop fussing about how they take our jobs because they don’t. If you actually have a career you would understand. Illegal immigrants basically do the leftover jobs while collage graduates get a career. If you fell behind and didn’t care about your education then that’s your fault. Illegals have helped us alot throughout the years. Did you know that they pay about 2 billion dollars a year of tax money. Yeah you care about there money but you want to send them back. What if you were in their situation?

Are there no jobs available in the country they/you are from? This puts a horrible burden on the American people that are paying too much in taxes as it is. Whose responsibility is it?

    YAWN. Looks just like another campaign strategy to me. Every move this man makes from now until election day 2012 will be to secure votes. He has already demonstrated his disdain for the American citizen with his economic policy. From this day until the election I want him held accountable for every person killed by an “undocumented” worker driving drunk, “undocumented” hispanic gang members raping, shooting dealing drugs, etc. But will anyone even dare to do this? If re elected as a lame duck he will try and complete his immigration amnesty policy. The Congressional Black caucus is having a fit because they think he is not paying enough attention to them. Why should he. He knows that the Black vote is 98% locked in. Even while the very policies the left practice decimate their communitys. I finnaly fled Detroit 10 years ago after a lifetime of watching the Democrats destroy the city. Detroit is a text book case of what Obama brings. What a bunch of lemmings.

I am in agreement that as a lame duck, he will be more dangerous and I think he will go all out with pushing thru everything he has waiting for just the right time to do it. I know what it is like to flee a city, did that in East St. Louis, il. in ’69. Before that, it was a great place to grow up in, but the politics were playing into everything that happened to the city and eventually you had so much welfare, well it became a lost cause. Ever so often I drive thru there and have actually had a hard time navigating, because most the buildings have been burned or boarded up, so landmarks that had been there my whole childhood are gone. The house my Dad build is still standing, but with bars on the windows. I hesitate to think if there is anyone working in that city, anymore. There will be more towns and cities that fall prey to this same blight, it is sad. However, we must want more and more government to help us out, don’t we??

        If they want to leave their countries to pursue a better life in America I have no problem with that at all as long as they follow the rules and come here legally. Just because they want a better life it doesn’t grant them permission to break the law in order to get here. Not only is this not fair for American citizens, it is equally if not more so, unfair to those aliens which have been wating in line trying to do things in the right way.

    We can argue, successfully, I might add, that the immigration laws in America need to be reformed. Our border needs to be secured. All of that is true.

      I agree, it has gotten way out of hand. The people here that could use the help (some middle-class) that have no kids by choice could use a little help with insurance, etc. Problem is, they know they can’t afford kids, so they don’t have them and THEY are punished with no help. Enter the ILLEGALS, yes I said it, and they get every available benefit, almost to the point of making them take it. What is wrong with this picture? My son was going to school full time, was looking for a job on the side, thought he would apply for food stamps, was turned down. He was told he had to be working 20 hours, to get them. He asked it everyone in the waiting-room was working 20 hours, the case worker said “no”, I am sure you can figure the rest out. He did get by on his own, found some work, graduated and is an engineer, no thanks to our system….don’t reward someone working hard that just needs a little help, give it to the ones that sit out on their front porch all day, have numerous kids and get all the handouts, haha, just venting.

Let’s face it, he has an agenda and is putting it thru at a fast pace to do as much damage as he can in a short amount of time. As for having babies here, I don’t think the law ever was meant for anchor babies, but for a different time in America’s past. There are big bucks to be made now to come here and have your baby. What a market that has become. Is it right? No, it is not. However, short of forbidding a pregnant woman from coming across the border, what else can we do. And, once again it is not only Hispanics as I am sure I will be attacked for. There are plenty other nationalities that do it, they even have hotels set up for it. What a quick and easy way of getting your foot in the door. What a mess this president has made of our country, look at all the chaos that is going on. I hope the Dems are proud of it, because they own it. I will also add a few RINOs that have assisted in our downfall.

    American citizens don’t work on construction, cleaning or other type of jobs performed by immigrants. That is the reallity. Americans don’t like to work hard. That is why we need them. But I do agree that they should pay taxes because is very frustrated to pay a lot of taxes and have them take all the benefits, like free medical care for example. That happened because they work under the table and there is no records of their income. They don’t worry about paying taxes, since they can not even drive here, they work to send money to their countries and go back after few years.

      Ash, they are driving, look how many accidents there are that involve uninsured illegals. I doubt that would stop any illegals from driving just because they can’t get a license. Isn’t there a state now that is going to GIVE illegals a license? I can’t remember, but thought it was California, doesn’t suprise me. Somehow they get plates. Don’t states ask for an ID anymore to make sure you are a citizen? There is a certain big chain store that now not only has a money-gram area, but specifically an area to send back to Mexico. All the brochures are in Spanish. For $3 they can cash their checks without a checking account. I don’t like everything that has a sign being labeled in English and Spanish and I sure don’t expect to “push 1″ for English in AMERICA. Only in America would that be tolerated, certainly not in other countries.

      If Americans do not work on these jobs it is not because they do not like hard work, it is because these illegals are taking these jobs away from them. Ask any constuction or lanscaping owner who is not hiring illegals how difficult it is to compete with those that do.

    I have been to Mexico I iunderstand why they come here. Washing laundry by hand, doing dishes in cold water, cooking outside because they cant afford gas for a stove and not to mention cold showers. It is not the life that I would want to live. Yet I spent 6 months there. They are only trying to better life there so that they can return and not have to suffer. Nobody understands this unless you have lived it. I understand that they should try to come here legally, but they dont because our laws here are so strict on who they want to grant permission to enter. It shouldnt be so dam hard for one to be granted a visa to come here and work so they can better their lives. Everyone no matter where your from should be able to better their lives. Put yourself in their shoes…..if you was there and they wouldnt grant you permission to come here, honestly would you try to cross?????? I mean really sit back and think about it. If the roles were reversed and put on my shoulders I would do it to better the life of my family and to give my children everything they ever could dream of having. Could you honestly tell me that you could live the life of poverty that they do????? I dont think so. I think that the illegals that are here should be granted citizenship of the US if they have never commited a crime and do nothing but go to work and do the things that us americans do on a daily basis.

    • August 21, 2011 9:27 pm

      Maybe they should ask themselves why their goverment does not move to improve their condition. It is not the responsibility of the United States government to make up for the inadequacies of other countries. If they want a better life they can either try to move to America legally or they can look to affect the change in their own country that is needed.

It might be those same ILLEGALS. Even worse you might have to cut their lawn. The Horror right. Just kidding…You and all of the conservatives can not blame everything on OBAMA. It is time for all conservatives to put on their Big Boy Pants and assume their part of their responsibility too. Yes and I agree Obama was not one of the best Democratic presidents. We have a real delema on our hands. What I would like to see is…naturalized citizens to actually be able to ask for their immediate family members without having to wait soo long.
        The other day I drove by the memorial and saw vets in their tents with no where to live. I asked my self why arent they at the local Labor Ready a couple of blocks down. Could it be that those type of jobs do not pay much?
        I definately think this is a strong possiblity.

Did you stop to ask the vets, if they are able to work, physically OR mentally that you say are in tents. I blame the government for not taking a role in helping them. However, our government will bend over backwards with benefits for illegals and those on from cradle to grave welfare. Where is the logic there? Our men/women go fight in wars for this country and they are thrown aside when they get home. Yes, blame both parties on this one. It appears that while we are trying to save our country, you are willing to see it taken down to a third world level, is that right? Do I detect that your think this is funny? That is really sick.

The “Aliens” can threaten you with or without citizenship. Sooo punishing those who didnt ask to be where they are because of the bad people. That makes you ignorant. Americans are also very lazy. If they wanted a job they could freaking get one. This is where dreams are made.

    This is obviously a bias view, as the author refers to President Obama’s administration as a “regime”. My personal belief is that everyone, as an American citizen or citizen of the world in which we live is entitled to an opinion, and I do not intend to bash the author’s idealism which he so admirably declares, however I do suggest that as a reader of this article, YOU make your own opinion, whether it be to agree or not, and enjoy your right as an American citizen, just as my friends who are attempting to become legal would love to have the luxury to be able to do. God bless America, and all His people in it!

    • August 22, 2011 7:49 pm

      I do not deny my bias, and I make no apologies for my bias. I agree that everyone should form their own opinions. If your firends are trying to become legal by following the rules I honestly hope that they are successful. I have no problem with immigration at all as long as those coming here follow the proper immigration procedure; if however they are breaking the law to get here it is fair neither to Americans or to those immigrants who came here legally.

        August 22, 2011 8:40 pm

        This is how I also feel. If you go thru the same channels as alot of other immigrants have to go thru, then I have no problem with that. It is when someone tries to do it illegally that I have a problem. When that happens then the ones trying to do it legally are turned down. You are welcome to your own opinion, but as I said above “attacking someone in a general way and as a whole, is probably not a good idea”. Comparing any of us here to Hitler is pretty heavy handed. If this is what is being taught now, then someone needs to get their facts straight on history.

      • August 22, 2011 8:54 pm

        Exactly! I do not understand these people who refuse to acknowledge that there is a difference between immigration and illegal immigration. We do not oppose people of other races coming to this country, we just want them to follow the rules, it seems so simple yet people like to call us racists and compare us to Hitler because we want people to follow the law.

    Steve, the name calling is when there is absolutely nothing constructive to say. Then the names start coming out. You know how that works. At my age, words don’t have much effect on me, don’t know about you, but I imagine it is about the same. It doesn’t matter what you say, there is always someone that will not listen to anyone elses opinions, they are the only right ones and take it upon themselves to change your way of thinking to theirs.
    There are those that think emotionally and those that think logically, I happen to be the logical thinker, so I really don’t let the emotions of the comment get to me. It saves having to “get over something”. Have a swell evening!

    • August 22, 2011 9:31 pm

      I agree, when a person resorts to name calling it usually means they are losing the argument and are trying to intimidate the opponent into backing down instead of relying on facts to make their argument. It used to bother me when people came here and called me a racist and compared me to Hitler but it doesn’t bother me anymore because I realize now that we are winning the battle based on facts and ideas and they have been forced to resort to name calling.

However, what you are accusing the GOVERNMENT of, aren’t the illegals doing the same thing? “If they want something they simply get it with or without your permission”, isn’t that what you said? Apparently they are very similar from what you wrote, both get what they want with or without your permission. Maybe I DID learn something from you. I will let Steve deal with being called a “boy”.

THEY SHOULD LOOK AT FIRST CRIMINAL RECORDS, INCOME TAXES AND REFERENCES. AND ALSO CHARGE ALL ELIGIBLE ALIENS A FEE, TO COVER ALL THE COSTS THAT THE PROCESS WILL TRIGER. I NOTICED THAT A LOT OF ILLEGAL ALIENS DONT PAY MEDICAL CARE, EVEN TOUGH THEY HAVE GOOD INCOMES(UNDER THE TABLE). AND WE HAVE TO PAY HUGE AMOUNT ON HEALTH INSURANCE AND MEDICARE. THE GOVERMMENT REALLY SHOULD TAKE A LOOK ON THINGS LIKE THAT. WITH THE AMNESTY THEY WOULD STOP TO SEND MONEY TO THEIR CONTRIES, BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO LIVE HERE LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. I THINK THEY SEND MONEY HOME BECAUSE THEY FELL NOT WELCOME HERE, IF THIS IS CHANGE, EVEN OUR ECONOMY COULD IMPROVE.

      You are overlooking the fact that Obama did not sign an amnesty law which was debated in the Congress, he simply avoided the debate and declared an amnesty policy.

Close the borders! This issue of letting the ones that have not done anything TOO wrong can stay, well excuse me. Isn’t coming here illegally, wrong , or have we changed the level of what is too wrong? Do we now have Really Wrong, Somewhat Wrong, Slightly Wrong, A Little bit Wrong and Let’s let them stay Wrong? Are there different levels of Wrong? I, silly me, thought if you did something Wrong, it was Wrong, end of story! I need to rethink my priorities, I guess.

I hope his mother is alright, but it is not the tax payers of the USA that should be paying for her care, it is the tax payers of Mexico. No one is running their mouths, as you say, but we as a country are not responsible for anyone else. However, the USA is one of the most generous country in the world when it comes to helping out other countries. Our tax money is sent all over the world to help out, yet we have so many of our own citizens here that are in need of help. There are plenty of US citizens that need coverage and cannot get it, but you expect it to be given to others, where is the logic there?

    If you were born in another COUNTRY and raised with no education. With no means to take care of your self other than hard physical labor for a few pennies a day. Barely enough to eat not alone no way to pay for medical or put in indoor pluming.then one day you hear about your neighbor who walked a week in the desert was robbed and beeten and forced to proform sexual acts as well as promise to work for someone for a year without pay to cover the cost of crossing the boarder. Oh and hid in the trunk of a car for a day with no light or food and water.and you think wow that is better than my life here…… I think I’ll try it. Only after risking your life do you realize once you get to America its not all true illegal immagrants CANNOT get free medical or food stamps.but what you can do is work your ass off under a fake social security number to pay full single taxes without ever filing for a return for fear of being found. Oh and did I mention that you would have come legally if it didn’t cost more than a couple thousand dollars to get a visa.more than you could make swinging a machete 12 hours a day six days a week in FIVE years and that’s if you didn’t eat in those five years.. you would learn English if you werent too affraid to go to classes and get deported. …….What makes you so special that you were born here?? That is something that you have no control over but I can guarantee if you were born somewhere else you would come here too. Yes things need to change but try to put yourselves in their shoes. You say you love America – they love it so much they risked their lives for the same dream that have. And they don’t even get a fraction of the benefits you do. Not that’s patriotism …

I am tired of my taxes being spent on people other than US citizens, it is not only Mexico, take your pick of any country around the world that we send big bucks to. We are BROKE (unless you want to count what is being stashed away in accounts, but that is another subject to be dealt with), the USA is borrowing money from countries and giving it away to others. Guess who picks up the tab? The people. We are spending money that is not in the checking account, if you can understand that. Pretty soon in the near future, the middle class is going to be taxed to death and no longer exist. You did bring up a valid point, yes I was born here, special, no, but I WAS born here. There is the difference. By crossing the border, anyone coming here without going thru the right channels has broken the law. Are we just supposed to overlook that? Steve mentioned above that the DOJ and DHS are ignoring the federal laws, last time I checked we are a Republic that has laws, don’t we? This whole administration has decided to just do what they want, haven’t they? Ok, so if you do move here and the economy tanks, which it will if it is overloaded, what have you really accomplished? At that point, you have become part of the problem, not the solution. Is your suggestion to just open the borders and let anyone in that wants to come? Does Mexico do that (I am only bringing Mexico up because you seem to think that is the only country we are complaining about)? I will answer that question for you, NO THEY DO NOT! There are very bad consequences if someone comes across their southern border, but, hey it is ok if someone comes across ours! End of discussion. Do it the right way or don’t do it at all. Change your politics there, don’t expect us to change ours to fit you.

      Ok, I am glad you are saying this only one time….ufff!!! because I am tired of hearing that missconception, HELLOOOO!!! If you are “illegal’ you can NOT receive help from the government! OMG! all your taxes are acctually going to all these wonderful americans who have 7 kids by 7 different fathers who live in section 8 have food stamps and do nothing all day!! Oh, not to forget all the people who receive a monthly check for them and their children for SSI or SSD because all of the sudden no one can work if their child has ADD, ADHD, ODD, OCD..etc…and of course if you are Bi-polar, have depression or a broken nail you are not able to work either…SO why don’t you ask yourself where all the money that the government take out of the “illegal’s” check every week (not all), but again remember you don’t know what I do for a living….so there are a lot of them that acctually get a check and taxes taken out and they don’t file return at the end of the year there for they don’t get the refund, so the government keeps the taxes that they take out of the ck all year long plus the refund. Now we are all learning something new….awwww

        V, if you are paying into the system as you say you are and then don’t file at the end of the year you KNOW you have done something illegal. If that is what is happening and you have not learned from it, that tells me you are not making a wise decision. As for the government/state paying out on illegals, all you need to do is see the problems hospitals have, and insurance companies that pay out (after we pay the deductible) on uninsured accidents. I could bring up more, but you are incorrect. Yes, you are correct about people taking advantage of the system here, we have generation after generation doing it. Our government allows it, those are the people that vote as told. If you think I like my money going out there any better than for illegals, you are wrong. So, you have told me nothing I didn’t know.

      • September 28, 2011 9:08 pm

        Yes there are plenty of people here legally who take advantage of the system, nobody is denying that and if I had my way these programs would also end. But that is not the point of this post, this post was specific to this one issue and the fact that you are trying to change the argument is proof that you have already lost the argument.

    second thing what are their circumstance to become illegal , i give you nice example of my self my doctor represent me alien when i am legal tourist visa that time i paid them $ 200,000 cash before coming here just to save the life of 4 yr daughter ,i just need a letter from doctor for immigration to show them all the fact why i required to stay here , for survival i required work authorization also but doctor hide all the fact and not give letter represent me as Alien , put my daughter life into danger so i don’t have any other option right now they doing her other surgery and this surgery is required because that time she thinks that we are alien not human , what did other body do in place of me , not option their is matter of life not the matter of alien would any father on earth able to see their kids to die when the treatment is available .,

    most confident president of USA is Mr Obama , he clear all the previous mistake of other president , gave new platform to USA , you see you will get the benefit of his policy in long run , fact is that human nature they feel the worth of thing when they lost it . this very common human nature , i request don’t losse the Gem like Mr. Obama he the right person

    Why do you all suppose illegal immigrants are criminals? yes it might be a crime they are in US with no documentals BUT, who said their intentions are to be criminals? Many come to seek opportunities, to make something better of themselves, to life a good life and you called them criminals? If so, then you also, are a US criminal.

    • September 5, 2011 7:40 pm

      By definition coming to this country illegally constitute a crime, but nobody here is suggesting that all illegals will commit additional crimes once they get here. Having said that, if one additional crime is prevented by deporting illegals before they have a chance to commit another crime than that is a plus in my book. They may have good intentions for coming here, but that doesn’t negate the manner in which they came here. It really isn’t that hard to understand.

      Excuse me? Last time I checked I am NOT an illegal. Where are you getting your information that I might be an illegal, too? Like Steve said, no one is suggesting that just because the illegals came here ILLEGALLY that they are going to do something criminal. No one SAID that! But, the fact is they broke the law when they stepped across the border. Why is that something that you don’t understand? No one can blame them for wanting to get out of the hell hole that they call home, but not at my and the US citizens expense. I have enough bills, I don’t need to pay for someone else. It is wrong for you and anyone else to expect that. Trying to discuss this subject rationally is a lost cause, I see that now. You don’t want to hear it and it is useless to try and explain it.

        I think he is trying to say we are all illegals because we took this land from the Indians. It is he who doesn’t understand that all countries border in the world have been decided through wars, we won this land through war and it was ceded to us upon terms of surrender. It seems harsh, but that is the reality.

No One is From here…stop all the hate! this is so ridiculous, with this crazy tug-a-war of who belongs here and who does not, instead of arguing about that, why don’t you and Steve the almighty put your strenght to helping a local charity….maybe that will teach you a little bit about people in need, and what they are willing to do for their children….and I mean just a little bit! tsss…its really sad how we all forget that we should all help eachother not like crap

    It’s so sad to hear Mr. Steve and Lou222 talking about illegals, putting them all in one category: Criminals. Unfortunate we think you know all, but you have such a narrow understanding of the situation. Not all illegals come here illegals, but things can happen beyond their control that can make then end up staying here illegally.
    Take my situation for an example. I came here legally to visit, met someone who decided to hire me and sponsor me, I’m a Biologist. I would take the animals and do some recycling projects for the farm. They rescue animals. I paid the lawyer, stayed here 6 years legally trough this job, when was time for me to finally apply for my green card I decided to hire a lawyer form my city. Guess what , he got my money and the money of other immigrants, and later on just send us some letters saying the he moved out of town, and we should find new lawyers, he did nothing but kept my money. Then my boss died, very sad, great person. I got another sponsor and paid another lawyer $6000.00 dolars, I would call and e-mail him often, he never would return my calls, I always had to ask my brother-in-law who is an american to cantact him, because the lawyer only would answer him, even tough I’m the one who paid him. And you say that it’s no racism! After 3 years waiting I recieved a letter form the Labor department saying that they were droping my case because the lawyer never gave them the information they required. All this time I was saying to the lawyer that I want prove but he would say, to my brother-in-law, don’t worry evrything is O. K. I’m working on it.
    After we find out that, he promissed he would star all over again, yes, because, my brother-in -law put pressure on him he’s starting over, but while I was waiing for my case to be approved, I had a baby. I did not had Medicare, I had private insurance, paid evrything out my pocket, etc. Every year I paid my taxes, I paid insurance for my kids, etc. Every thing you said illegals don’t do. My unfortunate, my daughter was born with a rare syndrome. BY the time I found out the my case was being droped because of my lazy lawyer, I said :I’m going back to my country, because I don’t have any more money to give to lawyers, being robbed, and have no rights. But them we found out that in my country they don’t know almost nothing about her syndrome, and that she would not receive the treatment that she needs. We decide to stay and wait to see if this time the lawyer will do what it’s right wnd what he been paid for.But now it’s the best thing: I need to drive my daughter to so many specialists, Don’t worry I pay insurance, I don’t get for free like you suppose we all do. But I can not renew my license, because my lawyer fail to do his part. I don’t have a drivers license, i don’t have a green card, so I believe that qualified me as an Allien, but That should not be the case if my 2 American lawyers had just done what they been paid for.
    I believed it never crossed their mind that I was a person, I was just some money in fornt of them, even though when I hired the second one I was very pregnant (it should tell them that I am a person, who has a family, to take care, etc). It never crossed his mind that his actions would afect my daughters life, that so desperely needs treatment, and may will end up not being able to received because hers parents are Illegal Alliens, even tough we did everything by the book. I guess that is life, shit happens, but because I’m the one on the other side of the fence, I’m the only one who should paid for, oh no, my daughter too.
    Just so you know I contact the Bar Assotiation, do you care to know what they said? That is nothing that we can do to help you.
    So, since it looks like that I know so much about Immigrants, what do you think I should do?
    Maybe I should sue the lawyer and leave, and them you are going to write abou how we come here sue you all and leave with your money. Maybe I should be here and wait on the mercy of this lawyer to do what it’s right now, and the mean time don’t drive my daughter to the many specialists that she desperely needs, because I don’t have a License.
    Thanks to God I found people that unlike you can understand that sometimes even tough you do everything right, things still go wrong and not by theis own fault. So I’m here waiting to see if now my case will be approved it can take 3-4 years, in the mean time I need to wash batroons for living, even tough I have a bacharel degree, I’m a realtor and a Mortgage broker, just because I can not renew my drivers License. Do you know what i ‘M THINK? I think that is a crime!!!
    Do you know what Mr. Steve, I’m not at all mad or upset about or point of view, everybody it’s entitled to his opnion, but I just believed that befor anybody decides to go out and about on their point of view, the should get a better understanding of the matter. Yes, this Immigration situation it’s very complex, but I just believed that your nation it’s so wise, that they could find a way to resolve this that could benefit some of the immigrants and a lot this country. Have a good one.

  32. September 24, 2011 2:15 pm

    I agree with Lisa….I’m sure there are a lot of Germans, Irish, Polish etc….that comit crimes…sooo just because they where lucky enough to be born here then its ok, but if an Illegal Immigrant defends himself against one of the so called “Americans” they are criminals??? I think that all is fair…if an “illegal” immigrant has to be deported for being “Illegal” then all other immigrants born here or not should be shipped back to their country if they commit a crime. That sounds fair to me….and just for the record the fact that “Americans” want to get a payck by doing nothing and the “illegals” work day and night just to provide for their families does not mean that they are taking all the jobs…there are plenty of jobs out there, but I guess that “Americans” are just too good to pick fruit or build cages for chickens or clean toilets…lets call it what it is “Americans” think that they are better than everyone else, love to complain, but they are not the ones to get their hands dirty.

      V, being born here means we live here “legally”, what nonsense it is saying they should be deported if commiting a crime. We have a legal system to handle that. As for the illegals having to defend themselves against us big bad AMERICANS, I think if you did your homework you would see in most cases that is not correct. I do, however agree with you that alot of people want a check for “doing nothing”, that needs to be changed, but the liberals like it that way, keeps them in office. There are plenty of Americans that do those jobs, there are just alot less jobs because the illegals take them.
      I guess you have justified why the illegals need to be here, so don’t let me try and tell you anything, apparently you are in “the know”. I enjoyed reading it, however.

        No, Lou222 the fact that we are born here means nothing, b/c none of us are in fact owners of this land…and as for me knowing what I am talking about in regards to JOBS that the AMERICANS are too lazy to do, you are right I in fact know what I am talking about….see thats the funny thing about this…your on here stating your opinion and automatically no one else knows what they are talking about…without knowing what I even do for a living….soooo with that being said, I am right! Immigrants are able to get jobs here because those positions are open! wow…would that mean that no one else would want to build chicken cages, or pick strawberries all day???, yep again I am right…if the americans would be working the “Illegal Immigrants” would not have a chance to get those jobs….tsss

        Steve, I am going to have to be fair here! Maybe IF they are reading OUR history books, they are not getting the full picture. We know the books are taking more of a liberal slant year after year. I think it has been brought to parents attention that his has been going on and alot are now speaking up. When was the last time you looked at your kids books? I did not, I am guilty of assuming the information was correct. Apparently we have people making decisions on what the context is and it has not been in favor of America. Is it any wonder, if that is what they are reading that this is what we have become as a nation? Shouldn’t our children know the real truth and not a watered down version or a plain lie? So, if this is where V and her friends that post here are getting their information, is it any wonder they have a one sided view of America? If we change our history books, will they go home when they are out of slinging ammo? Just a silly thought, I know.

      • September 29, 2011 8:44 pm

        A very good point Lou, it might not be that our children aren’t learning history. It might simply be that our children are learning a perverted and anti-American version of history. Here in New Hampshire it is a little different as the different school districts have more control over the lessons than is the case in most states, and that is the way it should be. I have looked at what my boys are learning in history and in Kingston we have a pretty good history class. I suspect it is much different in other parts of the country.

        I have told you before that name calling doesn’t work with me. As I stated above, the “contempt” that comes out on some of these posts makes me wonder why not only are they on this post commenting, but why are they in America???? You’d think they would want to not get all worked up, wouldn’t you? No amount of cheap shots are going to change the fact that if they are illegally here, they have already broken the law. The small 2,900 round up of illegals this past week (drop in the bucket) turned up ALOT of bad people. I would say it was over and above the “norm” of what a certain amount would have in it of repeat offenders and felons. If, as V has stated before they are only here to take the jobs we don’t want, why then do they already have records and WHY are they still here doing it over and over again? Isn’t it amazing? I thought from what V said, they just want to earn a living and live like we do. V,V,V, maybe you didn’t get the memo that a big majority of the illegals don’t want that white picket fence. And, before I get hit with being a racist, let me make it clear, I am talking about ALL illegals.

        “No amount of cheap shots are going to change the fact that if they are illegally here, they have already broken the law”

        This is the part that they don’t seem to be able to grasp. COming here illegally means they broke the law getting here, and if they broke the law they are criminals. It seems so simple, yet they just don’t get it!

I will unload trucks, stock shelves, clean bathrooms, pick strawberries, mow lawns or do just about anything I can to earn money. I worked in the stock room for minimum wage in the wee hours of the morning while most of you were enjoying your sleep.
      When my family came to the United States from Italy, they went through all of the necessary steps to become citizens including undergoing numerous medical tests, and completing all necessary documentation to become legal citizens. The first thing they did when they arrived was LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH and adhere to the culture. Is this asking too much? When did this prerequisit change?

        It must be so frustrating to be a legal immigrant who worked hard and got a degree by doing thinkgs the right way, only to see people come here illegally and he handed everything. This simply is not right and I hope that you will be able to finde work soon.

I sEE so many Latino, and Asian people on welfare as well more than black and ehite people stop bringing race into it to fight your battles bitch. I see so many racist people saying bad things about whites and blacks but the u turn around and suck our presidents dick for a green card lmfao. I love all people shit I have fucked every damn race! But I can’t sit here and let you throw my people under a damn bus to prove your point! Just cause your mad! It would be the same as me saying I hate all illegal aliens because my daughters father used me for citizenship!

    At steve you’re absolutely an ignorant person talking about Americans won the rights to this country through war .How could it be a war when the Indians had only spares and the americans had guns in my opinion it was a slatter. I’m and american just like many of you all who’s being ignorant on here talking about the mexicans and how they’re taking your jobs.I wonder why the American’s employers choose to hire illegal aliens rather than americans?From the age of eighteen years old i’m working changing many different jobs and never have I been out of a job for a couple months .You know why that is?because I work hard and will do any job to take care of my family and yeah I know you’re thinking right now that I must be hispanic or a mexican but you’re wrong I’m and african american and proud of it .Everybody in this country comes from immigrants even white america which most of you all family tree is from Russia ,Italy ,Canada and so on.So you guys need to think about all the kids who will be affected by deportation…cause obviously if you deport a family that also means born and raised American kids .So think before being ignorant If a man commits a crime it don’t matter where you come from you should pay the consequences if its and illegal alien who commits a crime ,well yeah deport them …..but let me tell you many illegal alien work hard and accomplish many things than many born americans ….I believe it’s just jealousy seeing these people living in america and doing good for themself and thats our problems.I have a lot of thing to say but this is all for now.

    • October 12, 2011 9:41 pm

        Thank you Karen. I never brought race into this but those who attack me are the ones who mention race. I have no problem with anyone of any race who come here legally, it is those who don’t that I have a problem with.

    Why don’t you go tell your fellow citizen lazy butts to get up and get the job ‘immigrants’ are taking away from them ? The jobs are there because they need someone working them. A citizen will be preferred over any illegal any time. It’s a job waiting to be worked, not a job taken from a citizen.

    Pardon my previous Reply. I was flustered. I still agree with it but that sounded a bit harsh. Being illegal makes life impossible and it is illegal in the first place but the only thing wanted is to be legal, but that costs a a lot of money, which is why immigrants are here in the first place ( money to provide a better life for one’s family ) . What is wrong with wanting to provide for one’s family. Immigrants run risks by being here, but they are willing to do that in order to give their children most importantly, a life they deserve. Look at the story behind all the constitutional terms and what not. Because everyone has a story. Making at least 10 times more money for 100 times the work to have money to treat loved sick ones, or children left back in their home country, or wanting a better life, or being brought into the country at a very young age against the child’s will (not even remembering a memory of what was before being in the U.S) and being raised and educated here but getting to the age of needing a job or a simple college scholarship and finding out you can’t get one..Graduating in the Top 10 of the best educated schools of the nation and still know that after college, finding a job will be almost impossible..
    Everyone has a story.

      Alex, it is still illegal what they are doing. I think you will find, if you do some research, that it is far harder than what you may think to get citizenship in other countries. That is all we, as Americans, are asking. We want people to go thru the proper channels to become American citizens. It has never been that we don’t “want” them coming here, but do it the right way.

    • November 20, 2011 9:38 am

      You are right the law should be changed. We need to stop misinterpreting the 14th amendment; this would eliminate illegal aliens from having anchor babies in the US and then we could send the parents AND the children back home.

    Every state that has high unemployment that has outlawed illegal immigrants now finds themselves with continued high unemployment, and no immigrants to pick their produce. Jobless Americans still want minimum wage, which is fair. But Americans don’t want to pay for produce that’s marked up to accomodate those prices. Our economy needs immigrant labor, and that’s a sad fact of capitalism and our minimum standard of living that we’ve imposed on ourselves.

    well it isn’t the illegal immigrants fault that the Americans jobs are being taken! most Americans are lazy !and feel no need to have a higher leveled resume that would capture the employers eyes, they feel cause they are Americans they have the right to take all the government money and just sit around while many immigrants work hard, when they do get a job and work even harder because they know where they came from isn’t easy ,so they are more appreciative when they do get a job. don’t hate on the work that immigrants are doing cause they don’t force or threaten the employers to hire them they were just chosen for the jobs!. maybe if Americans had BETTER qualifications for better jobs they wouldn’t have to worry.so let them enjoy they life here cause they experienced hardship maybe send Americans to the immigrants country and maybe they would APPRICIATE they country more.

    Personally, i agree with what Obama is doing. Yes, there are illegal immigrants who only come to the US to cause harm and traffic drugs, but there are many who just come here to better their lives and work. they harm no one, and honestly, so many americans just throw their lives away and do nothing with it. Americans are citizens, they dont have to be watching over their back for immigration patrols or cops, they can get jobs almost anywhere, get aid to go to college and make something of themselves, pretty much, americans have it made but most dont take advantage of it. They spend their time living on government assistance. Not all, but most citizens do and these immigrants just want to work to provide for their families. Its a shame that these people cannot recieve a simple card just to be in the US. Everyone sees them as a threat, when really the majority of illegals are just here to work and want to live in peace with no problems with anyone, but no one sees that. just put yourself in that situation; it would not be a good one. consider yourself blessed!!!!!

    • December 1, 2011 10:08 pm

      They can receive a card and come here legally, but they choose not to, they should not be rewarded for this. And as for hurting nobody; they have stolen a social security number if they are paying taxes and I would ask you to ask the person who is the rightful owner of the SS number if they were not hurt by this when they went to collect what was rightfully thier’s.

    I agree with the fact that laws should not be ignored and they should be changed (not that it’s possible to change anything when congress can’t agree to anything).

    What I don’t agree with is the following paragraph “So instead of deporting illegal immigrants before they have a chance to commit a crime against an American citizen the regime will wait until an American citizen has been victimized by an illegal alien before starting deportation hearings. In other words the Obama regime feels as if it is more important to protect an illegal alien from deportation than protecting American citizens from a potential crime perpetrated by an illegal alien.”

    Sounds to me like it’s being assumed that the illegal aliens will eventually commit a crime. This is not a fair assumption. Many illegal aliens left their countries in search of a better future, better jobs and stability and SECURITY. They are not all here to commit crimes.

    Second of all, the jobs they take up are not always jobs Americans would do.
    Most of the illegal immigrants don’t have a higher level education (if they did they would probably have less of a problem staying in their own country).
    The majority of Americans do not face a significant competition for illegal immigrants.

      @sami3101 ~ Damn straight! Innocent until proven guilty. Unless your an immigrant. Then deported until proven innocent.

      This is not a fair view at all and it is absolutely right to allow a person to remain in-country until they have been proven guilty AFTER they commit a crime.

      Well said!

        So, what you are saying (and it amazes me), is that after coming here ILLEGALLY, allow that illegal immigrant to stay here unless or until he/she commits a crime and are proven guilty. That is the only time they should be deported? How do you think that would work in ANY other country in the world? The same? Doubtful. You might ask Mexico what they do with illegals, just for a start!

        It just seemed to me that deportation was being presented as the right thing to do based on avoiding future crimes and not on the illegality of crossing a country without being cleared by customs and immigration.

      • January 9, 2012 7:50 pm

        The point I was trying to make was this: Once it is known that the person is here illegally they should be deported, I didn’t mean to suggest they be deported before they were found guilty. We must not forget that coming to this country illegally is a crime and if found guilty they should be punished under the law, just as every other crime should be.

    America is a melting pot of so many different kinds of people. Why must americans who started as immigrants from different countries always hate on some kind of race or ethnicity. If it isn’t native americans than it was women, if not women than it was arican americans, if not african americans than it is those that physically looked like those from iraq, and if not from iraq than mexico or of latin origin. Do you really know what you are talking about or just being a judgementalist. Do you complain about those people that are americans and don’t need welfare but still claim food stamps abusing the privledge that others should be taking advantage of? Or how about those americans that complain that others are “taking your jobs” but in actuality just sit on the behind they should be working with. No body is taking your jobs away. Don’t blame the people that are harder working than you just to make a life of peace and happiness for them selves. People that are americans abuse their rights to be called americans sometimes… do you hate on them… no of course you wouldn’t you are so one track minded you couldn’t see what’s happening. Think outside of the box next time.

      Then you have not been reading the posts further back, if you think that there is not anger at free-loaders in this country. I resent my money being given to someone that will not try and help themselves! Yes, we know that there is abuse that happens here with the welfare system. The issue is coming here the correct way. If they want a life of peace and happiness, then do it the right way! Our families came here by doing it the right way. Has that become a thing of the past? Do you think it is right to just come in ahead of people that have been waiting years to come to this country? By allowing this to continue you are putting the welfare of one group of people over another, don’t you see that? Is one person more important than another, just because they choose to step across the border instead of doing paperwork? Not crazy about your “think outside of the box next time”, either. I am getting tired of justifying why it is not legal to come across the border without the proper paperwork. Maybe they should start justifying why it IS legal to do it. I think that would be pretty hard to do.

What you are saying is if I commit a crime, it is alright and should be overlooked? Or, is it just select crimes?

        Hum, For Mexicans to enter legally? Hum let’s see. First they would need to apply at the American embassy. Wait about 5 years for the application to be approved, the once approved then they would need submit another application with NVC and wait for that to be approved of course they would need to provide proof they have money an education and have a job. So now 10 years have have passed his application will probably be denied because he has no education and no money and no family members that can sponsor him so this Mexican person probably has a starving family, lives in a town controlled by thugs, drug dealers, and when he goes to the police he gets beat down because the police are owned by drug cartels. So he goes to work every day making $4 a day debating weather to cross that border… Hummm ME IN HIS SHOES HELL YES.. What would you do Steve? I’m not saying that crossing the border illegally is right I’m just saying the immigration is to strict against Mexicans and Mexico has this problem because of U.S corporate America and the cheap labor. As long as Mexico is controlled by drug dealers these American corporations will continue to exploit the Mexican people. We help the nations overseas more then our neighbors.

      There are alot of people that work for minimum wage in the US. It still boils down to being illegal to come here without applying to do so. The problem with Mexico is Mexico’s problem, however we give alot of money to them as well as alot of countries around the world. Where does that money go? In some fat cats wallet? Is there a written law somewhere that says the USA is responsible for every country in the world that can’t or won’t take care of themselves?Just look around here and see we have our OWN problems. So, we are still to blame and you think it is their right to come here and take what they want in this country? What about people applying the correct way? Do they have to sit back and be put on hold because we just don’t have any more money to take care of more people? By the way, I worked thru highschool to pay for my gas and insurance and clothes, etc, for $3.25 an hour, I was darn glad to have the job. I didn’t have much of a social life, but I had a car and learned some skills and had self respect, so “lazy”, I was not. That being said,
      the people that criticize the lazy Americans and take jobs here illegally need to work with their government to clean up the act in their own country so they CAN earn a living wage. If you allow something to happen it will happen. And, by the way, the cheap shots are just that, “cheap shots”! You say those things when there is nothing factual to back up what you are saying. “You” meaning whoever is stating them.

    Being illegal is not a crime for everyone. Some come here to do bad things and I see that as a bad thing too, and they don’t deserve to be given US citizenship; but that doesn’t entitle everyone to denial. There is a lot of people that come here illegally to have a better life, just because you are born in a country, doesn’t mean you have to stay in it for the rest of your life, especially if there is no opportunities there. People that want to better themselves come to the US to make a better living, have a better quality of life, and for the most important; to provide their family with the best. I came here as a child, and my parents are good people, unlike a lot of citizens that are greedy and don’t want to give people opportunities just because they stereotype. My parents have not committed any crime, either here or in Mexico, they simply came because they were tired of not having enough food to feed my two sisters and myself. Did they want to? Of course not, they loved the land where they were born and raised in, but like I said; there isn’t opportunities there. Therefore, you have to find better ways to live life. They are both working in a non-criminal way. By this i mean, they don’t do anything illegally that will harm society. They both work in factories, and they both get TAXES deducted from their paychecks and see almost nothing back come 2k time. People like my parents and myself should be granted legal status. People should be investigated so not just any criminal that sells drugs in the streets gets legal status. People should be investigated and found either guilty or not guilty of crimes such as drug trafficking, DUI’s, domestic violence, or any other felony. Not all people are the same… You can’t compare the devil to an angel. A lot of us are good people. The whole immigration laws should be re-written. It will do America a big big big favor, and bring the economy to a better stand.

I have been through that situation before. Let me tell you this some of those illegal aliens did not come here illegally some came here the legal way but stay here longer than they were suppose to, then they become known as illegal. I’m sure some one in your families generation came here or stayed here illegally, what if that person was deported ? then you wouldn’t have been here right?!

You think that just because you or someone that came here illegally are not doing anything wrong and paying taxes that it is ok to stay here? That the US should re-write our laws? That is so wrong, I can’t begin to comprehend it. No one is saying you are not “good people”, ever. But, you are taking away from people that have been waiting in line for years to do it the right way. That this should even BE an issue is amazing. That this president and a few of the others before would want to grant amnesty is wrong. If they do, they are not abiding by the law and if that happens why shouldn’t all laws be thrown out?

You work with what you are dealt and they need to stay in their own countries and change what is happening. We have our own issues here, to add more to them is not the way it should work. Apparently we can no longer even question if someone is here illegally, unless there is another crime committed. When does it end? What about all of the homeless that are legal citizens, do they get the same kind of help that illegals get? The answer to that is NO! Our homeless vets are treated horribly, surely they should be helped for the service they did for their counrty? I don’t see it happening. But, as usual, the USA will bend over backwards for others, but not for their own. This is a sad state of affairs.

    Steve Dennis, I know my parents could have gone about it a different way. But when your desperate for a better life, you just do things. You don’t wait to be homeless like LOU says, there is a lot of homeless citizens in the streets, even VETS. But why DO YOU think that is? Because they don’t strive for a better life. They could very well look for a job, even if its minimum wage and work themselves up. There is no such thing like that in Mexico, there is only jobs that will pay you 500 pesos for a whole weeks job, that’s the equivalent of 40-45 US dollars, even if you wanted to have a better life you can’t unless you never slept and had six. 8 dollars an hour stretches a long long way, people just don’t see it like that. Every time I see a homeless vet I give them at least a dollar or two. I can name a few on the top of my head, they each have their little spot. My point being is that these homeless people decide that they are going to live their lives like that, you don’t need the governments aid to live a liveable life. And yes Steve, they did commit a crime for us. Wouldn’t you do the same thing if you only had a glass of milk and a couple cookies for all three of your kids. I dont know if you have kids, but imagine yourself in the worst case scenario, where you are trying so hard to make it to the next day. The only food you have is for your kids and you go to to sleep with nothing in your stomach because you only had the least amount for your kids. I’m not saying it was right for my parents to come here in the illegal way, but it was the right thing to do morally. We did not have an easy life as children, but now almost 20 years later, is a different story. It’s true when they say you make your life story based on your decisions. Because if my parents wouldn’t have decided to come here, who knows what would have become of our lives. There is a lot of people suffering of hunger, and violence all over the world, not just Mexico, so I am GLAD my parents made that life decision, otherwise I don’t know what would have become of us. Seeing all these opportunities laid out for us is how it was supposed to be, you can’t say we did it the wrong way morally. Life is Life and we can live it freely, and go where ever we want if it means it will better our lives. Now I am waiting on my RESIDENCY, I will have to go to MEXICO and go through all the legal work. It took me a while after I got married to decide that I want a legal status, because I didn’t see it important, I went back to school a year ago, and now I see I need it, not to go to Mexico, since I was raised in the US i feel like I belong here, I don’t have any desire to go to Mexico. But I know my parents do, therefore, I will become a citizen afterwards and fix their legal status as well. And yes Lou your right, its dumb for the US to re write the laws. I understand what your saying. This is a topic that should be understood from allllllllllll sides and angles, & from different perspectives.

        I worked at a staffing agency and the number of LEGAL AMERICAN people that walked in there to get jobs was BIG! but they were only doing it to keep getting their unemployment check ( Check in at random jobs to show that they were TRYING) but when a job came available they would ask what it paid, what does it entitle, is it on the weekends, can i show up at 10? Really! And when it the job was handed over to a Mexican (legal or not) they would not question it just go for it! So really – The AMERICANS are the ones that are NOT taking the jobs that are being offered to them! SO NO Mexicans are NOT taking ANYONE’S JOB they are doing what NEEDS to be DONE!!!!!

I am all for people coming here from other countries to make a better life for them selves if they do it legally. This is the only country in the world you can enter illegally and we will give you a job housing and health care. But yet there are alot of Americans that cant afford the same luxuries.

    It is crazy. Why should we accept people coming here illegally and getting jobs and gov assistance when there are people here that cant get these things. I have seen in some of the earlier posts someone said that they come here illegally for the sake of making a better life for their families and that should not be a crime. Well with logic like that Should I be able to come break into your house and live there just because your house is bigger, in a nicer neighborhood, and has better schools? Because that would be better for my family in my eyes. However that is ILLEGAL so to get these things I go about it the right way and work for them.

        Monica, if you think I base my opinions on thumbs up or down, you are wrong. No, I am not a racist, that is about the only thing you wrote I agree with. As for the ability to do hard work, you don’t know me. I do not need your sympathy or your shame. You might also want to take the time to spell words out. I am not sure where you went to school, but that is totally unacceptable to post such as that mess. Might it just be too “hard” for you to do? Be sure the next time you stop by to put a thumbs down on my posts, then I will know I have made my point.

        Steve, I guess we should follow Monica’s comment about the thumbs, now that I have pondered on it for a bit. We spend so much time actually trying to post a well thought out comment that we forget to give people the thumbs up. I imagine Monica and people with her same opinions come here only to criticize and give us the thumbs down, don’t you? So, take a moment out of your day and give each other the thumbs up, that way Monica can see not everyone is as bigoted as she is and some just might think what we are saying is correct.

    Chad I strongly disagree with what you just said. It’s like your saying that, you are going to work a whole 40 hrs this week, and I’m going to steal your check and cash it out. Do you see anyone doing this anywhere? No i don’t think so. No one is stealing your money, no one is stealing your food, or sitting on your couch watching your TV, that is just plain wrong and illegal, that’s greed and pure laziness.. No illegal immigrant would do that. We all work for what we get, and need. Your comparing two whole different things. If someone ever those that to me, or you, the thief should go to jail because that is not something a human needs. What I human needs, is open opportunities, and jobs. remember what happen years a go, when the US was manufacturing their own supply and had the American people working for very low wages? That is the reason why everything we use in our daily lives gets imported into the US. Because of the very good point Monica ^^^ was trying to get to you, the American people don’t want to work for 8.75 an hour. Before minimum wage was a lot lower than today. But 8.75 is nothing to the American people, especially if they have to do labor and have to wake up at 4,5 AM everyday in order to get to work. That is why the US is fucked, yes I said fucked.. Nothing but imports and debt debt debt, greed greed greed, corruption corruption, no exports, no money, Don’t go blaming the illegals for the Doom the US is in. America and the greed it carries, is what got it to this point. Illegals only get scraps. GO TALK TO THE RICH PEOPLE! Don’t start trying to blame the people that actually want a better life. Take the blind fold off yourself. Do you think the big rich banks, rich people, big companies care about fucking people over? Minimum wage people are the ones that keep this country running! My point is, illegals don’t come here to steal your house and your money. Illegals come here to work the jobs that require you to get up at 4/5 am. or work night shifts from 2pm-3am or the ones that work in the very yummy restaurants that you go dine in, or the mcdonalds drive thru that you go to, or the lady that cleans your house. All clean money. maybe .012 percent of what big businesses make a year, who else would do it?? YOU??? .. Whether you like it or not… that’s a true story. What ever happen to sharing?? Not talking about wealth, I’m talking about land. and freedom! O yeah People are greedy. Reality check.

    Hey Steve, check this one out.. I was deported and am sitting in TJ Mexico, brought my small manufacturing business here, and have suffered a lot because I was separated from my two Children, and US citizen Wife.. Fortunately, turns out that is a good long term experience, since My wife has put a petition for me, and am about to come back to the US legally with a green card so I could come in and out of the US as I feel like it.
    I did commit some crimes (Felonies)..Thats why I was deported, but I found out all “your Country” (the US) wanted, is a sum of $2200 Dllrs, and 6 Months out deported before they could allow me to come back LAGALLY.. wow.. it was a good thing after all then (for me of course) not for you guys that are complaining that we “the Hispanics” take your Jobs and all.. so neither you or your country are ever going to end your disconfort with “Illegals” since they deport us, and give us a green card 6-8 Months later..

    America was built by immigrants. I did a research project with the initial stand that illegal immigration was wrong, but by the end of all the RESEARCH and project part, I had changed my stance. Illegal immigration work being cheap and efficient is economically savvy. And, saying that an illigal immigrant will commit a crime is like saying every Middle Eastern is a terrorist. Very ignorant. Go work in a field yourself, and see why Mexicans and other Latinos are the ones doing the job instead of Americans.

      Marina, no one is saying that they are not hard workers, no one has ever said that on this blog. No one has ever said that they WILL commit a crime, just because of being here illegally. However,the fact still remains that the first thing they DO coming across the border without the proper paperwork, IS an illegal act in and of itself. Yes, America was built by immigrants, but you don’t see the word “illegal” before it, do you!!! I am really getting tired of it being justified with “they do the work the American people are too lazy to do” attached with it.

        Tito, this just didn’t start with our present president, but he has taken it at a very fast pace to ruining our country. There is plenty of blame to go around with a number of our past presidents. The language used by Rickstage is not what this blog is about, nor has it ever been. However, he, like you is entitled to his opinion. Name calling is pretty petty and serves no purpose. Obamas “color” has nothing to do with the poor job he has done since he has been in office.

      • February 1, 2012 8:38 pm

        Bush started the illegal immigration problem, really? Bush was a disaster when it came to illegal immigration but he did not start the problem, he did nothing to solve it. You claim that we are racists but it is you who used a degrogatory term–colored–to describe the president so you are the one who is bigotted. You obviously haven’t read my previous posts on Bush’s failings on illegal immigration and are throwing out accusations which simply are not true.
        Lou is right, this blog is not about using the language Rickstage used but he is entitled to his opinion and I let all comments stand on their own as the voice of the person writing them–this does not always represent the views of this blog.

    Sounds to me like it’s time for the United States to make a few law amendments so we can stop calling them “illegals” “criminals”. The United States has always amended mistakes within the law we do it all the time. Since the beginning we all know our history let’s see the white man enslaved African American people for generation so the law was changed. Segregation for generations so the law was changed. And now we call people coming to this country for a better life “criminals” and “illegals” because they broke the law.. Ok I get it.. It makes sense, so then let’s change the law. I agree with the fact the we need to control immigration and have accountability but facts are facts the more we try to criminalize migration of human necessity the more we hurt this country economically and morally. Something needs to be done I don’t even like calling them “Aliens” really? Is that the new “N” word?. America needs to wake up we need to enforce our borders enforce our security I get that more then you know! I fought the Taliban in the rigid mountains of Afghanistan and went house by house in Iraq looking for our enemies I’ve lost some long life friends the sacrificed their lives for this country so security is everything but truth be known I felt safer walking the streets of Iraq then crossing the border in to Mexico. We need to help these poor people in an organized and lawful matter we know the rich can get in to the United States but what about the poor? All they want is a better life for their families, and because they are willing to work minimum wage in America’s industrial and agricultural jobs it makes it so the Unites States continues to grow as the economic super power we are. Think about it ever since we started mass deportations we are now paying almost $5 dollars for milk and other produce that normally would be way less. Let’s change the LAW lets track our migrant workers lets influence legal migration seasonal migration that way both party’s win. let’s enforce our borders to keep the real criminals out Terrorist’s being number 1, drug dealers, Gangbangers, child molesters, rapist, drunk drivers. Make everyone that enters this country finger print identity just like the DMV does. If we track legal migration it would be easy for police to assist Homeland Security in immigration law basically if you get stopped and have no valid I.D then you will be turned over to INS if they investigate you are a criminal where ever weather in Mexico or the united states your out. Automatic deportation but if its someone that just wants to better their life they are working and provides proof give them a temporary seasonal visa, don’t brand him as a “criminal” because he didn’t get inspected upon entering the country. We can learn a lot from migrant workers how they enter without inspection to enforce our borders. Tons of drugs get in to the country on a daily basis that’s what we need to focus on.

    Thank you Celia90, I only wish United States government understood. September 11 2001 changed The United States for ever because the attackers were immigrants a lot of hasty immigration decisions were made for which I understand and agree with [at the time]. Now technology has changed and The Department of Homeland Security was formed A Border wall was built and it’s now 11 years later and hasty immigration decisions that were made now need to be ratified to fit today’s time. America is slowly falling in to a recession unemployment rates are up even with jobs available in the agriculture and industrial fields. Why don’t Americans want these jobs it’s simple really! Americans receive more from welfare, food stamps, and that unemployment check then if they were working minimum wage 8+ hours a day under the sun or a hot factory making Oscar Meyer hot dogs for 8hrs a day. So you gather those facts and of course they don’t want to work unless a job pops up paying them more then food stamps, welfare, and that unemployment check, hell I would stay home to and “look for a job” collecting American tax payer dollars until I found that perfect job NOT MAKING MINIMUM WAGE. Americans are ignorant to the fact that an UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT (CAN NOT) receive welfare, food stamps, or unemployment because they are UNDOCUMENTED! They have no I.D and no social security number without those important documents they are denied almost all American benefits except emergency care and education which is why they work in America’s most unwanted jobs. A lot of undocumented immigrant workers use fake social security numbers or a relatives social security number to work so that means at the end of the year they can’t file any taxes? So what happens if the government owes them money? Or if they owe the government money? For which I highly doubt; I don’t think you will owe the government much at the end of the year if you’re making minimum wage. I remember in high school and college working fast food at the end of the year I’d still get back about $200. Back to the point America causes their own economic crashes those politicians are at sleep at the wheel or what’s going on? American Education system has taught us to strive for the best I remember my teachers telling me not to end up at a job working minimum wage. So how do we get Americans to except minimum wage jobs? When we teach from the very start not to end up at a minimum wage job?, Cut their unemployment check, cut their welfare, and those food stamps then maybe in the middle of starving to death, losing their homes, and losing their family’s they will except that minimum wage job but if they don’t then we won’t need to worry about a recession and walk right in to another great depression probably worst today then in 1929 just because there is more people. So back to those immigrants, that America loves to blame for everything!. Today it is estimated that over 30% of the U.S workforce are immigrants and 8.3% of Americans are unemployed. President Barrack Obama will implement a plan to train these Americans in skilled jobs once again SKILLED JOBS! These jobs don’t make minimum wage! So who will cover minimum wage jobs? That 30% you see above which are immigrants and right now 11% of those immigrants are undocumented all I’m saying is give them credit give them a face we are way to advanced to continue to live with people working for America under false ID’s give them their Identity let them have Temporary visas to work then after 10yrs of paying taxes and working for the U.S they can option to stay as residents let them earn the right to be a permanent resident. Another fact we need to consider and a very important fact! Most immigrant’s pay big money to bring their families in to the united stated unchecked undocumented which according to today’s laws makes them illegal immigrant’s the reason why is because these migrant workers who cross the border to illegally after years of working here begin to miss their family’s so they they bring them kids wife sisters everything! So they begin new life here living under the radar and the family continues to grow these family’s now have children here American born citizen kids from undocumented immigrant family. If America makes immigration changes legalize the workers then they can cross the border legally after seasonal jobs are done and visit family without the need to bring them all to the United States illegally. They can’t do that now because the minute they cross that border back in to Mexico or what ever country they are from then they will not be coming back. Kind of reminds me of the Berlin wall in Germany. I wrote all this because as I scroll up I notice a lot blame put on immigrants for Americas recession and unemployment rates.

    Steve,
    I just want to say that I think its funny that you keep reminding people that all lands or territories were fought for and rightfully “WON”. So that makes it ok to be from an immigrant family but still not want immigrants here in the U.S.. ( I know you say immigrants are o.k., just not illigal. Even though we all know its too difficult to go through the proper chanels.) Anyway back to point …… if all the immigrants and immigrant supporters got together and decided to fight. They would whip your sorry ass. Then I wonder if you would say “well they won, thats fair.” I’m sure you would still just be whinning about how “wronged” you have been done. Just wanted to point out that not all the ways or laws of the past are still the right way to go in this country. Not the immigration laws that need reformed nor the ways land was occured. Thanks for your time

You say no more anchor babies “JOSE” but you’re an anchor baby yourself! It’s hard to argue with stupid so I will try and keep it simple for you. Half the things you said contradict each other and have no reference or educated presumptions. Making the Marine Corp look bad bud! Some of the things you said suggest racism against your own which is hypocrisy don’t you think?. It’s amazing but I don’t think you realize that some of the things you said even suggest turning America in to a socialist republic America is being invaded by foreigners? Really? Please! On a serious note I thank you for your comment because I’m using it in college in my ethics class as an example of failed American education! I’m going to school you a little though, America needs minimum wage to run the capitalist economy and to remain competetive in world trade I hope you understand that! If we do way with immigrants even if Americans except minimum wage jobs and force American companies to pay higher wages with benefits the country will fall in to “INFLATION” yes I know that’s a big word for you! Now if that happens that means you will get your big raise but everything else will go up also! Like the food you buy at the grocery store, toothpaste, shoes, clothes all that. Now companies will be forced to take the price down so when that happens companies move out of the country and take those jobs to Mexico, South Korea, South Africa, China where they can pay $2 hour to make you that shirt you’re wearing at those low low prices you love at Walmart. Wait only one problem now guess what where back to the UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM! Wow how do we fix this!!! LOL Jose you need to back to school bud.

Wouldn’t you strive for something better for your self and kids? I’m pretty sure who ever has a heart, would strive and risk their own lives and their kids, for a better place.

    There is always a price for freedom no matter where you live or migrate to. If there are people who will risk their lives and family’s lives to prove that they deserve to live here then they should do so. Those who think they can get away with anything cause they are basically nonexistence should be sent away. The Laws will not go away but they can be changed or modified to accommodate the changing times. So whether you are for or against the new immigration laws, or go on a rant on how you are disappointed with the President or how relieved that it passed; it doesn’t matter because we all have to live with it. If you don’t like it, don’t worry it will be news for a hot minute (like obesity, health care, and social security) then we forget about it until the next national drama. We’re human.

So back to those immigrants, that America loves to blame for everything!. Today it is estimated that over 30% of the U.S workforce are immigrants and 8.3% of Americans are unemployed. President Barrack Obama will implement a plan to train these Americans in skilled jobs once again SKILLED JOBS! These jobs don’t make minimum wage! So who will cover minimum wage jobs? That 30% you see above which are immigrants and right now 11% of those immigrants are undocumented all I’m saying is give them credit give them a face we are way to advanced to continue to live with people working for America under false ID’s give them their Identity let them have Temporary visas to work then after 10yrs of paying taxes and working for the U.S they can option to stay as residents let them earn the right to be a permanent resident. Another fact we need to consider and a very important fact! Most immigrant’s pay big money to bring their families in to the united stated unchecked undocumented which according to today’s laws makes them illegal immigrant’s the reason why is because these migrant workers who cross the border to illegally after years of working here begin to miss their family’s so they they bring them kids wife sisters everything! So they begin new life here living under the radar and the family continues to grow these family’s now have children here American born citizen kids from undocumented immigrant family. If America makes immigration changes legalize the workers then they can cross the border legally after seasonal jobs are done and visit family without the need to bring them all to the United States illegally. They can’t do that now because the minute they cross that border back in to Mexico or what ever country they are from then they will not be coming back. Kind of reminds me of the Berlin wall in Germany. I wrote all this because as I scroll up I notice a lot blame put on immigrants for Americas recession and unemployment rates.

    Listen, most of the illegals, and I say most, come here to seek for a better life for their families, they are working people, who some of them leave their families behind, they go through loneliness, uncertainty, and fear of a new place, but they are taking the last chance of survival. That is not a crime, I do not think they are thinking they will do something illegal at that moment. That knowledge comes to them when it is mentioned to them after they have already entered. Are there some crimes committed by illegals, yes, so are there crimes committed by citizens and residents, there are rotten people in all levels, you cannot possibly kicked them all out. On the other hand I think some people are spending too much time into something that is not actually damaging the economy or the lives of others; yet all the terrorist that have killed people by the hundreds are LEGAL. Focus on the right track, while the terrorist that are planning to kill people in our backyard are in our schools, workplaces with the proper documentation, some spend their time persecuting normal people trying to survive.

    I was born and raised here in America, and I am very proud to be an American. No doubt about that. My family is from South America, and I have to say that I get the best of both worlds. I experience both cultures equally. One of my family members came to America illegally through Mexico and arrived here with just the clothes on their back. Their first job was cleaning disgusting places and things for less then what minimum wage is today. Their objective was to work for a couple of years and do nothing but save money and eventually go back to South America to live a somewhat of a better life. Yes, it is true a lot of people come to this country commit crime and do illegal things but that’s everywhere you go. As Americans we can go pretty much anywhere in the world, with the exception of Cuba. Yet, these people don’t complain of us going and in some cases living and working in their country. I get it. THEIR ARE A LOT OF ILLEGAL immigrants here in the U.S. But they’re people as well in other countries where the government is terrible and does not care. We are very fortunate and blessed that we live in a country where we have great opportunities to work, eat good food, and be successful if we want. What these people want (IN MOST CASES) is the same kind of opportunities to provide a better way of living for their families or themselves. I understand it is the law for them to not be here. Like I was saying, my relative(s) arrived here with just the clothes on their back and not a dime in their pocket. Today he/she is the owner of a business that takes place in NYC, NJ, and in Boston, MA. He/she can now vote. This is the dream of an illegal alien. To succeed, and have a better life. Not to destroy American’s lives or steal the work of Americans. After all this is the “UNITED” States of America. Everyone should be treated equally. should we accept criminals? No. Just like American criminals should not have the privilege to be free and out in society doing what’s wrong. How many homeless people do you see out in the street everyday, every hour begging others and shaking a cup of coins while you walk to work or to school in a city? Where I live it’s a lot. And I guarantee that these people are Americans. My point is that they are not here to do any harm. For those that come here to commit crime, yes they should not be here or they should be deported. What about Americans going to another country to commit crime?.. Yes they should be deported as well. I have many acquaintances that are immigrants and I know for a fact that MOST of them are here to work and then go back. They send money that THEY WORKED FOR to their families or save for whatever cause. Most of them work 2-3 jobs mostly at restaurants, construction, or any other lower cost labor jobs. Someone that comes to mind that I know goes from one job to the others and has about 4 hours after to eat and sleep before he starts again. Im not saying there isn’t but it’s rare that you see and American work like this. I don’t know of any. The bottom line is we should acknowledge the hard work that these people bring into this country, and what they are really here for. I love America and I am truly proud to be an American, but that doesn’t make me better than people from other countries.

    oh! and sorry for writing a book haha =)

    First of all illegals can not vote…. so the comment below is just dumb (think before you speak). Also they are not takeing our Jobs they cant get jobs like us because they do not have social securtiy numbers there for there under the table doing jobs that most Americans bitch about doing they do the hard work no one else wants to do & make very little money doing it. Yes there are many illegal criminals but theres just as many american criminals so there is no difference what do you think sending them all back will make it any better here crime wise? No I dont think so. There are many illegals that work just as hard as any american that are not criminals but are here takeing care of there familys following the rules trying to make lifes for them selfs especially the ones brought here as kids they had no choice it is not there fault there here & you want to send them back to a place they have never known with no family how would you like to get ripped apart from your familys & have everything you know taken away from you. People really need to get a grip you’s your hearts for once instead of you racist minds your views are disgusting, thoughtless, & careless. Dont get me wrong I know there are illegals out there that break the law I know there are ones that are violent & alot of gangs but those people are being taken care of & delt with accordingly. I dont think that just because there are some like that out there that every single illegal should be punished for the actions of others that they can not control if that was to happen to americans half the American popullation would be locked up & half would be people who have done nothing wrong. Dont blame the illegals for not being to get a job either thats a damn joke get your ass off your couch & work hard every day trying to find one & take anything you can get without complaining infact I dont even know why your complaining because your probably getting a fat unemployment check every month like most out of work people & you can thank Obama for that the man you all love to hate! All he’s trying to do is make things better with illegals,jobs,healthcare,life in general & you people are to blind & racist to see that. Obama came into presidencey with it already being a mess thanks to bush & hes tryin to fix it & no one will let him. Blame your selfs for that not others. (RANT OVER) p.s before you think im illegal or anything like that because I know thats what you fools will already think… think again I am a American & I am white.

    I would Like to start by asking all the mouth runners “Dennis” ,How many People do you employ??? I employ about 45 American,Mexican And several Different Asians,,I will take a Mexican worker over most Americans any day, they do the job and don’t cry about everything they have to do for the money they agreed to do it for. they don’t stand around and talk on my time when they should be working, so that I can keep getting jobs to pay them, And I would Take an Asian over a Mexican any day they work even harder, I don’t cheat any of them, I pay them equal to the American worker, Dollar for Dollar, By the way the Americans are the only ones the are continually having to ask for pay advances because they drunk their pay check, they didn’t have the sense to save some of it, the average guy for me makes over $700.00 weekly, So before any of you run your mouths about any one go hire someone and pay they out of your own pocket.

    After reading this article, I just wanted to say that this new immigration law is not only going to affect the Hispanic community, It will affect the Jamaican, Asian, Hatian etc. I am extremely happy about this new law and I am an american citizen! by the way a lot of jobs that are open right now for americans, most refuse to take it as though it’s beneath them, so why not allow the illegal immigrants the oppurtunity to take them, work, make money and pay taxes and not live off the country for free! stop being selfish.

      Your classification of Americans is quite bigotted, but that isn’t the main point. The issue here isn’t the law but rather the manner in which the president instituted it.

      • Svet permalink
        June 17, 2012 2:27 am

        I strongly believe that the president, on his own, does not have the full power to make any laws. The constitution was build this way so that can, “Protect common people so as to protect individual liberty.” Early Americans, “Wanted to ensure the survival of a republican from of government,….” The reason it was build like that was, so that the people can have the right to vote as well as given full power to one man can cost strong distraction for the hole nation. When one man have full power, he becomes selfish. The people no longer have the freedom that our founders build in the constitution. I grew up as an orphan from the time I was born. I grew up in Europe during the time when the communists people took everything from the hard working people and gave it to people who did not wanted to work hard or at all. I have seen how one man who has all the power can change very quickly and become selfish and dangerous for the nation. Dear Americans, I am asking you to not bite the idea of Obama doing the right thing about the illegal immigration in America. What I am trying to tell you is that the bigger problem is not about the immigrants/immigration, the bigger problem is that Obama is making a law by taking a full power that has not been given to him by the constitution or the articles of confederation. Obama is using the immigration debate to take fully the federal power. In the book, America a Narrative History, the authors, Tindall and Shi, wrote In November 1777 a committee headed by John Dickson produced a draft constitution, Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. “The central government envisaged by the Articles of Confederation had little authority. Congress was intended not as a legislature, nor as a sovereign entity unto itself, but as a collective substitute for the monarch. In essence it was to be a legislative body serving as the nation’s chief executive.” (p169). Like I said the case is no longer about the issue of immigration, the case is about Obama obeying the federal constitution. Going to the topic, I am for hard working people and honest people who respect every individual equal and with respect. I do believe that there are people who are illegally here, but at the same time they have no mind set to harm anybody, but to help their families, which is the right thing to do. But the issue has to be taken in the right way fallowed by the articles of confederation. I pray that all Americans will see the real issue. The real issue is that Obama wants to control with full power, which is against the federal constitution.

    I own a restaurant and it seems that no legal Americans are willing to work at this job that is beneath them. It pays well above minimum wage. Too many people are staying home for unemployment rather than taking a job. Take this from someone who is hiring 7 days a week. 365 days a year.

      I wish my son lived in your state and could work for you because he has been trying to find a job and he worked for minimum wage as a dishwasher before the place went belly up thanks to Obama’s economy. He worked hard for his money and he is not collecting a penny from unemployment, all he wants is a job and he can’t find one.

    alright guys enough with the hate leave good old Steve alone hes only making his point of view on how he sees things. i personally agree with what obama is doing with this, i honestly dont like him as a president and think he has just hurt the US this whole time hes been president but this is actually good bc if all illegals ended up going back to mexico or whatever the came from then a lot of companies would close bc honestly its kinda late to send them all back when they have become a great part of our economy, yes it is unfair for the people that got here legally and have to wait but all this plan is doing is just giving a permanent permit to work legally its not giving them citizenship so technically no one is gonna have to do extra waiting on their paper to go through and in a way that would help keep some of those mexis under control bc to be able to qualify for one of those permits they need to have no criminal record even a simple DUI would hurt them and would just put them in deportation if the even tried to apply. So i dont agree with you Steve on saying that they need to be sent back bc even tho i feel bad for your kid having a hard time finding a job i have worked with mexicans or every other latin american comers that work harder that most of my friends and i do and i mean manager of restaurants see that and of course theyre gonna go for the harder workers we just need to work harder than they do but we give up too easily and thats why no one hires a white over a mexican in most cases. so let them stay and make a good impact in this country i mean its only gonna affect a very small portion of the illegals anyway bc most of them wont be eligible to even apply for one bc of their history with the law and the ones that do well they will be watched very closely and will be sent back at the first mistake that they make bc even if they have a permit to be here a minor misdemeanor against the law could set them in deportation and their permits would be taken away from them.

    So Good Job Obama in finally doing something that might help the country and Work harder my fellow mexis and show this country why you have been given this great opportunity and dont waste it.

      What many of these people fail to realize is that I am upset with the process more than anything else.

      What you fail to realize is that I am talking about the systm used to pass this law and not the law itself. We have a constitution and the constitution sets up the proper proceedure to pass laws. The Congress has to pass the law through the House and the Senate before the president can sign it, but that isn’t what happened here. Obama just decreed new law on his own and that is where the problem lies.

    I am in favor of passing things like the DREAM act. I think if an undocumented immigrant wants to come over here and fight for your country to show their love and dedication to us in exchange for ‘papers’. Why not? I have served in the Army with some amazing people, and let me tell you they are not all Americans. They are Africans, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans. Canadians, etc. I feel that being as we are ALL here as a result of ‘illegals’ that we should ALL be required to ‘earn our keep.’ I did my time, I served my country, I broke my back and was given a maximum of 15 years to walk. What have YOU done? I will support any law that they will put in front of undocumented aliens because EVERYONE deserves a chance for success and not all of them knowingly commited a crime. What about those who came here as babies, kids, or pre-teens. Do you think they should be ‘punished’ for an adults dumb mistake? Let me ask you one more question. Would you like to live in Mexico? What would you do if the shoe was on the other foot? Have a nice day you self-centered, selfish, ignorant A**holes!!

They used up all their cash assistance and are living out of government housing because they do not want to work harder to earn more money to get a better life or place of their own. haha i mean come on who pays 25 dollars a month for rent anywhere but government housing?!

      • July 3, 2012 6:58 am

        And I think you are ignorant, so what’s your point? This is about the president not following constitutional procedure and making up laws all on his own. The only people who are bringing up race here are people like you who have no other argument.

    I love how it is always people in the upper middle to upper class who are championing the right for illegal immigrants to stay, citing “they have done no wrong.” or my favorite, “They are only taking jobs no-one wants.” Anyone who doesn’t have a college education (People with college degree’s are not generally competing against Illegals at an interview) or an ivory tower to observe to world from can tell you that illegal immigration hurts the working class the most. Only 4% of illegals work picking crops with the majority working service industry, construction, or production jobs. Jobs that used to be that back bone of the non college educated American work force. So really, they are only taking the jobs that rich people don’t want, not Americans.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=768h3Tz4Qik Check it out LOL… THEY TOOK URRR JOBS…. they took urrrrr jobs.. They toooooook eerrruuurrrrr job.. LOL you guys are fighting a losing battle. This entire website is based on racism and hate. Like Arizona other states will follow in their racial profile of immigrants but it’s too late were here to stay! Our children and our children’s children will run this country! Woot Obama and the democrats. Even Steve is ignorant to the FACT of U.S interest’s abroad. The United States like most Americans are mostly about me.. Me.. Me.. Even my people the Hispanic population sometimes fall in to that wave of me.. Me.. Me.. But you forget that the United States is the most corrupt country in the world. The same way they took Arizona, Texas, and California from us they do this in other ways today. C’mon Steve how can a third world country fight against a super power like the U.S and I mean that in political terms. Truth is, this great country is responsible for its own immigration problem- THEY WANT THAT CHEAP LABOR! As long as the Unites States supports the drug cartels in Mexico-Mexico will never grow why because the Mexican Government (the rich) sit in spa’s with the Unites States Government (the rich) and talk about where their next vacation spot will be. It shouldn’t matter whether you came to this country undocumented or with a visa, you’re HUMAN…. it’s all that should matter! People are dying on the border trying to get to this great Nation.. Why is everyone ignoring this? http://www.nctimes.com/news/local/article_d7ecde47-4489-5eec-8807-5e355e73bbb6.html check out this link! Why are people ignoring this?? And many deaths and rapes that go on that we don’t even know about WHY IS THIS NOT AN ISSUE!!! WOMEN AND CHILDREN PEOPLE!! WOMEN AND CHILDREN..!! It’s sad that this country has come to this worried about THEY TOOK UUUURRR JOBS rather than the human beings that are dying trying to get to this country!!!. I already know what some of you may be thinking “no one forces them to come here” “they make that choice”. Ok so do people that decide to stand on a ledge and commit suicide but are you going to let him die? What about the anorexic girl that refuses to eat are you going to let her die? What about the kid that overdosed on drugs are you going to let him die? They are human people!. Hispanics come to this country and risk their own lives for the same reason you will not cross that border in to Mexico today for a vacation. THE VIOLENCE, THE RAPE’S THE ABUSE WORKING FOR $10 WEEK. If I were a Mexican Citizen I would risk everything to bring my wife and kids here to the U.S for a better future away from criminal cops of Mexico and the violent gangs and cartels like the Zetas http://articles.cnn.com/2012-05-14/americas/world_americas_mexico-bodies-found_1_zetas-sinaloa-cartel-mexican-official?_s=PM:AMERICAS well I’m done.

      You read one post and you have concluded that this entire blog is based on racism? Pretty shortsighted on your part if I say so myself. To think that asking the president to actually follow the law is somehow racist? Well that is a stretch.

      • July 4, 2012 1:04 pm

        Steve, I only say this because in general people that comment on this subject are not really thinking about the consequences of immigration border enforcement. Most people when you mention the word immigrant the first thing they think of is “Mexican” but there are Mexicans, Chinese, Korean, African and so on. Most professional high paying jobs are taken Chinese, Korean, or Arabic immigrants so why are “Mexicans” being focused? And when I say “Mexicans” that is not even a true statement, I mean hipanics-lantinos it’s sad that they are being less than humans because they are crossing the border as in my own perspective as refugees because of mass murders going on in Mexico! http://latindispatch.com/2011/06/03/mexico-debates-drug-war-death-toll-figure-amid-government-silence/ it’s really sad that this is happening to our neighbor and The Unites States is looking the other way. I wish Mexico would launch in to a civil war so you will what the Unites States does next. Because I am educated in history The Unites States will begin to give asylum to Mexicans to avoid war and begin propaganda to stop the war. Why would the Unites States do this? simple because all GMC and Chevy parts are built in MEXICO at low cost paying factory workers in Mexico $10 a week then the parts come to The United States where they are assembled paying American workers to do the easy job of assembly about 25 to 30 dollars an hour. So you see Steve a Civil war in Mexico would not be beneficial to the United States. I made a reference to Chevy and Gmc because they are sister companies but there are thousands of companies that do this not just these. And Mexico isn’t the only country being held down from progress all though Mexico is the focus because their current drug war and corrupt government. Business is good for the United States on both ends if Mexico remains a 3rd world country cheap labor in the states and cheap parts made by Unites States Company’s in Mexico.. sad .. sad. sad.. I read an article about how immigration round up is now starting to affect The U.S Agricultural economy because farmer don’t have workers to pick the fruits and vegetable I LOL so hard I so whish this going on so The American People can see what happens when inflation hits hard!! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/04/agriculture-industry-e-verify-illegal-immigration_n_871391.html LOL yeah go for it America go work in the fields they will pay you $20 an hour ROFL lets see how much we will paying for lettuce, carrots, banannas, ROFL INFLATION INFLATION!! and they dont even see it coming. They say it will help the Economy to deport Nooooo I dont thins so, they say it will stimulate people to enter the U.S the right way Noooo I dont thind so. Currently the U.S only offers Student Visas for the Rich in Mexico so the Rich Parents of Students can pay for their schools here in the U.S. Currently The United States SMARTY’S in congress do not offer Work Temp Visas.. woot woot were headed towards Industrial Economical disaster first starting with inflation and then go from there. One American farmer even said he switched his crop so he can by machines to do the work so he doesn’t have to depend on workers. But running these machines is expensive with the price of fuel going up everyday he had to raise the price of his goods.. wow. wow its alrady happening.

      • July 4, 2012 1:53 pm

        My problem was with the fact you called my entire blog racist based on one post on illegal immigration in which I did not even mention race other than to point out Obama was talking in front of laRazza when in fact I cover a number of current events and illegal immigration is only one–that was quite the generalization.
        Most of the people who brought up race in the comments are people on the left who try to use that to paint me and other supporters of cracking down on illegal immigration as racists when in fact we are talking about all people who come to this country illegally.
        THis is not a matter of race, it is a matter of the rule of law and I don’t have a problem with anyone who decides to make a better life for themselves in this country regardless of their race as long as they do it legally. This post was about the rule of law and about how Barack Obama didn’t follow the constitutional process to implement this new law. We can have a debate about how to deal with this issue, but Barack Obama did this own his own, bypassing both the Congress and the debate process and that is where my problem lies.

  120. July 5, 2012 1:12 pm

    I see your point, but your blog still has a lot of in-accuracy’s starting with the base statement of this blog. As of today July 5, 2012 only one law has the president skipped congress over immigration law and that is the dream act for minors living and going to school here in the United States. The way I understand it, undocumented minors living in the United States that have no criminal record and have been going to school here for longer than 5 years will be able to apply for a temporary education visa starting Aug 1, 2012. Since Sep 11, 2001 that is about the only immigration law that has changed. The rest are just political promises and propaganda for immigration reform. Steve I understand your point about the people that cross in to this country illegally to not to award them for crossing illegally but understand one thing this country is run by the rich people and the only people that go through the proper procedures to get in to The United States are the rich the people that really have no desperate driving force to risk their lives to cross that border illegally. Another important point that your blog misses on the very first statement you made in this blog “It is a double win for Obama, he gets more people on the government doel and more voters at the same time” you said this as a response to someone’s post, but if you do your research you will find that in order to vote you must be a U.S citizen with a valid social security number and I.D and Voter Registration card. All these things are un-obtainable by an undocumented immigrant even immigrants with resident alien cards cannot obtain a voter registration card because they lack U.S citizenship. The United States needs to focus on saving lives on the border and stop the prejudice in-justice going on at the border specially in Arizona http://www.nctimes.com/news/local/article_d7ecde47-4489-5eec-8807-5e355e73bbb6.html people are dying kids are dying woman are dying. Then there is other factors the U.S interests at home, our agricultural economy is beginning to hurt as I stated above. I am not saying for the U.S to allow undocumented workers to continue working these jobs all I’m saying is for the United States to grant a seasonal workers permit. Let people do this and you will see less deaths at the border and more people going through the proper channels to get in to the United States. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/04/agriculture-industry-e-verify-illegal-immigration_n_871391.html

    • July 5, 2012 8:23 pm

      I think you misunderstood what I meant about Obama gaining votes by this. I did not mean the illegals granted amnesty would be voting (although with no voter ID laws it is possible for some of them to committ voter fraud) what I was referring to was the fact that this was an attempt to gain the votes of more legal Hispanic voters by making a move with which they will likely approve.

    May our amazing Lord heal those hearts of hate. Love your neighbor, If we increased LOVE, homes would be much healthier as well as each individual. We would all be ABLE to lay our heads in our pillows every night and sleep in peace. But others worry about hating, shame on you AMERICANS! I am an AMERICAN and I do sleep in PEACE at night, I am in perfect health, wealth, etc. I do grant jobs to immigrants, my best friend is one, none have failed me to this day. THIS COUNTRY IS MADE OUT OF ILLEGALS. Look at your chairs, spoons, even underwear, MADE IN CHINA, TAIWAN, ETC. WE kill little children everyday when we purchase even a chocolate bar, next time you purchase ANYTHING, do your research and how we contribute to child slavery, how we kill others everyday, WE are the murders, abusers, rapist, because all those children that work for 50cents a month go through that. WHY CAN’T WE OPEN OUR EYES AND LEARN TO BE KIND SO OUR COUNTRY CAN CONTINUE TO BE BLESS LIKE IT ALWAYS HAS, BUT SOON IT WILL END IF WE FORGET HOW IN GOD WE TRUST!

    My political views are conservative and I have not voted for Obama and will not, but… But, the ignorance of these people, posting here, makes me sick!

    Simple as it is:

    1. Illegals CAN’T vote! PERIOD!

    2. American citizens are not potential employees for the positions taken by illegals in this country! If we send them back home, we simply either have to take those dirty jobs ourselves, or we’re screwed! American lazy asses, are you going to work as slaves, 25 hours a day for $5-$6 per hour? NO, you are not! You’d rather be on welfare or unemployment! Small business owners, what will happen to you, if these illegal immigrants are sent back?! You’ll be fucked! What will happen when small businesses are fucked? Keep guessing yourselves… This is a political policy to keep these illegals as cockroaches, and if their being in the country is not beneficial for us, I believe, they would be exterminated long ago! This process is more controllable, then our political leaders draw it.

    i think if you are a united citizen and your husband is not legal here but you are married for over 5 yrs and you have kids with a illegal alien i think they should not be able to deport them if they have only committed one crime and has a steady job for over a 3 yr period i think it would be wrong unless the crime was rape, or murder or that person is being in the court system every other month then yeah but at least give them a chance they do us.

      First things first, I don’t care for your language, but you are entitled to post that way. What negative comments you have put. The world is NOT a pretty place to live anymore and we do NOT owe you (if it applys) OR the children brought here ILLEGALLY anything. Their parents are responsible for this and they need to take them back to the country that they were from. The USA has become nothing but a big country of entitlements to and for people that don’t deserve them, this includes alot of citizens as well as the illegals. Do you realize how many people (American citizens) are out of work and then you think it is a good thing to bring in millions more illegally to take the small amount of jobs that there are? So, while we are talking about stupid, you must be in that “stupid” catagory and I can’t tolerate stupid people. As for your comment about the Chinese people coming in thru Mexico, if you think that is ALL that is coming across our borders, you are wrong. I am sure that the government of Mexico is well aware of them coming across and are allowing it to happen. If you check, Mexico has a zero tollerance of invaders, so they must be welcomed guests, just passing thru. Mexico doesn’t have our best interest at heart and they sure as hell are not watching our back. You need to bring yourself into the real world and stop the pity party, no one owes those DREAM children anything, I resent my money having to go towards that.

      • August 10, 2012 2:04 pm

        Lou222 you are an idiot! First of all the dream act is not just for Mexicans it’s for all non-documented children of every race! African, Chinese, Hispanic or whatever. But they need to qualify for it according to the standards put forward by Homeland Security. And Lou222 you are very ignorant also because everyone pays taxes and these kids have been living here for years some are in college now so think about it AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS paid for their education why would we send them back to their country. Another thing to think about smart guy, is the fact that in order to qualify for the dream act you need to graduate from high school! So think about it buddy… Most Americans that don’t graduate from High school usually end up on SSI, welfare, or prison if not living off parents so we need to fill in the gap of these losers. Here is a little bit of education for you Lou222 you ready? Dream act is not permanent so if someone breaks the law under that status guess what? They get deported.. so unlike the some of our loser American kids we have running around getting DUI’s and getting arrested at Marty gross, drinking in public at the beach, beating their girlfriends or whatever. Dream act participants will get deported for any reckless 2nd class misdemeanor or any felonies at that. So quit your crying Lou222 and use your brain to get at the real issues like health care and how our government embezzles millions of dollars on foreign companies that export to the United States instead of employing Americans. Or maybe we should look at the American war effort in apghanistan and Iraq and how American Tax dollars are being used to rebuild those two war torn country’s.. If you ask me they war tarn before we even got there. How about all the free medical American gives those countries.. And what about S.Korea occupation and Guatemala WTF are we doing there? And Germany, Japan, Kuwait, Egypt, Check. Rep. and on and on…..
