    Why, because we'd be smart and resourceful enough to take you over in less time? ;) (just kidding)

    A lot of immigrants do have jobs where Social Security taxes are taken out, so a lot of them pay taxes for benefits they won't receive.

    As far as them taking services such as education and hospital, you could say the same things about anybody who is poor. In fact, people DID say the same things about blacks in the 60s and 70s and even later.

    the current rants against immigrants are no different that when my grandfather came over from Italy in the early part of the 20th Century. And save the "but they were legal immigrants" stuff, because in 1924 they changed immigration rules to prevent people like him, Jews, and other people from southern and eastern Europe from coming over.

    They're still saying that which is, as you say, another big reason people are against immigration in any form. Never mind that many of the immigrants work harder than many Americans (myself included) who have grown up in relative comfort.
  5. Wow, an actual realistic discussion on immigration.

    Congratulations to all here on being quite possibly the first Americans to conduct one.

    Amazing, not even one fraudulent lament about the "illegals" breaking "our laws."

    When, of course, they're not really our laws.

    At least not to our businesses, who:

    1. run our country
    2. essentially have invited all 12 million "illegals"
    3. bear 100 percent responsibility for this "crisis"
    3 1/2. if indeed it's a crisis.

    Thank you. I have refurbished hope.
