    Research ... Facts!

    Once amnesty for illegal aliens passes, the percentage will be much, much higher. Why is the misleading term "unauthorized immigrant" becoming popular all of a sudden? If I rob a bank, is that an "unauthorized withdrawal? It's ILLEGAL folks. Get with reality.  ...

    Mixed Feelings

    Another Side Of The Illegal Immigrant Story

    You know, like a lot of Americans, I am conflicted about the illegal immigrant issue - I mean, on my father's side of the family, we are Native American, and Scots - his family traces it's roots back to Stone Age nomads that walked here across the Bering Land Bridge in the last...

    My Story And My Opinion

    I am part Hispanic, and my physical features seem to say so too. Some people come up to me and start to speak Spanish to me, but I do not know Spanish, I was born in the U.S. and I take pride in being American. Listen, not ALL illegal immigrants are Hispanic, and not ALL...

    I Do Think We Need to Keep That From Happening

    I have nothing against people comeing here from a differnt country if they do it legally.It is when they  do it illegally that  they should not be allowed to stay.They need to be sent back and have to go through the process of  getting here legally.

    FACTS Need to Be Considered. the Average Liberal Attention Span Is Measured In Nanoseconds.

    We Are The World

    I am a very rare person, a Republican in favor of amnesty and easier immigration to the USA. Let's take a step back and look at how we got here. The Spanish invaded north and south America and killed natives as if they were animals and took all the gold they could find back to...

    It's getting chaotic in Europe with it all!

    I am sympathetic to migrants plight (or refugees as they now prefer to be called, to win support perhaps) especially from war-torn areas like Syria and parts of Africa as in their position, I'd probably do the same. But like Greece said, you have to draw the line above those...

    Illegal Immigration????
