Let me see if I've got this right...........

If you cross the north korean border illegally you get 12 years hard
labor.

If you cross the iranian border illegally you are detained
indefinitely.

If you cross the afghan border illegally, you get shot.

If you cross the saudi arabian border illegally you will be jailed.

If you cross the chinese border illegally you may never be heard from
again.

If you cross the venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy
and your fate will be sealed.

If you cross the cuban border illegally you will be thrown into
political prison to rot..

If you cross the u.s. Border illegally you get

1 - a job,
2 - a drivers license,
3 - social security card,
4 - welfare,
5 - food stamps,
6 - credit cards,
7 - subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house,
8 - free education,
9 - free health care,
10 - a lobbyist in washington
11 - billions of dollars worth of public documents printed in your
language
12 - and the right to carry your countrys flag while you protest
that you dont get enough respect
13. Free legal representation at great cost to taxpayers

i just wanted to make sure i had a firm grasp on the situation

Right On dallasdon !!! Our country definitely has gone down the wrong path concerning this issue. I'll add this one -- The expectation of illegals/legals to have government employees speak their language, instead of English. My father and his parents emigrated from Italy when he was 12 and his parents were in their thirties. They didn't expect people to speak Italian. They LEARNED ENGLISH.

I agree totally. I am so tired that I have to be politically correct but it is ok for mexicans to use the term "brown pride." If I used the term "white pride," then I am a racist.

And it is ok to have a United Negro College Fund. But if there was a United Caucasian College Fund, you could just imagine what would happen with that.

My point is this country is way to sympathetic on some subjects. With this huge "melting pot" we have in this country, it is no wonder why nothing can get accomplished.

We (the US) became a great nation by having somewhat open borders. About 100 years ago all of my great grandparents arrived. So, the problem isn't relatively open borders. And, I can tell you from personal experience a large percentage of the Latinos that I know (mostly from Mexico) are extremely hard workers. So, don't be to fast to throw out blame. "We" are the dumbasses that somehow created a system that allows some of the folks that cross the border to abuse the system. How about we focus on sending the folks home who don't want to work? How about we get the folks who were born here, who don't want to work, back to work (if at all possible)? Last, how about a whole bunch of new lawmakers and laws that aren't so silly liberal???

their Constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to

Yep, that's it

The country you risked life an limb for from the enemy you battled. Is now giving it to them free of charge with a bonus.

I am sure the founding fathers are rolling over in their graves!!!

I just have to ask who votes for the idiots that run this country. We need to scratch every single one of them and start with a clean slate.

We need to remember, there's a big difference between "immigrants" and "illegal immigrants". There are plenty of ways to get here legally.

Sarcasm is a privilege.......not a right.

I agree.

if you think of a bank account, all of our ancestors have sweat and died to make deposits into the strength of the country.

Illegal immigrants come to the country and make withdrawls from this country without ever putting anything into it. that makes for a very empty melting pot of gold!!

I like the American melting pot idea...but in a lot of cases I think it does'nt really happen 'till the 2nd or 3rd generation....illegal is just that..ILLEGAL... JAIL 'EM FOR A WHILE(some hard labour maybe)THEN SHIP 'EM BACK!!!.....In Canada we don't(supposedly) have a melting pot so much...we have MULTICULTURALISM...which IMO...means the gov. bends over backwards to #!-speak your language#2provide literature in your language..#3 provide a lawyer to fight the system for you#4 Wile you wait for your lawyer to do his job for you we'll pay you and put you up in a hotel....I DO TRULY BELIEVE CANADA IS THE BEST PLACE TO BE...BUT I JUST HAVE TO CRY WHEN I SEE NON-CANADIANS HERE THAT HAVE MORE RIGHTS AND PRIVILIGES THAN WE DO...SHAME...Too many distinct societies in one place...IMHO
