    I have a DREAM that immigrants wanting to live and study here will abide by the laws of this Country. Laws that were in place before they got in. This is supposed to be a nation of laws.
No illegal immigrants should be given citizenship. We have immigration laws that must be followed, and following those laws is the pathway to being a legal resident in the U.S.if the Congress care about America’s immigration system. you can start by removing wet foot, dryfoot" policy, in terms of allowing Cuban refugees that racist

    Why is this anti-hispanic when it applies to all illegal immigrants? illegal is not a Race. It is Illegal!

    there is a difference between Illegal and Legal immigration.  All sides of the immigration debate need to recognize that distinction in order to hold productive debate.

    Obama is probably not the anti-christ ... he's probably just a radical, lying, ambitious, narcissist, con man, who will say, or do anything, to gain, and hold onto his personal power ... even if it means destroying America in the process !!!

    New research by Dr. Steve Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies finds that 81% of the jobs created in Texas between the years 2007 and 2011 went to newly-arrived immigrants. Conclusions were based on an analysis of data from the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey.

    Statistics from Operation Subversive. This is in Rick Perry's state, but this problem is in all states and caused by both parties.

    mr. obama and everyone in congress and the senate should live for one week in a heavily populated latino community....they will experience what it feels like...they will see how other minorities are being out-numbered, out-employed, schools are being filled to capacity and the system is being over-whelmed by the increasing number of unemployed, "disabled" and elderly illegal immigrants.

    we have wonderful people in the latino communities, however the majority of them do not assimilate....they only associate with their "families"....once they move into a community, they seem as though they are entitled and never try to embrace others in the community.
