I think the illegals inmigrants are criminals like any other, because they are breaking the law and when you break the law in any way you are a criminal. Their excuse is that they are not criminals and they come here to work and give a better life to their families. I am so sorry for all the problems and hard times they are having in their countries, but we have the right to secure our borders and to enforce our laws the more than we can. Also, our country is not the one that need to provide them for their needs, is their countries the ones that suppose improve their life quality. What do you think?

Because something is law doesn't mean it's moral. Many people on here can remember when it was illegal for a black man to get a drink of water in a white restaurant. These are desperate people. This land was once open to them and Europeans came here, raped, murdered and plundered and we still continue to exploit them in their own country, where big, multi-million dollar corporations open shop and pay them slave wages. If we stopped illegal immigrants from working here, it would cost $11 to buy an orange. Many are here using phony IDs, and taxes are being withheld, but the immigrant of course cannot claim a refund.

what i don't agree with is letting them come over here to better their lives when it making ours worse. a freind of a family members was in jail and he said 90% of the people in it were inmigrants. so there they are sitting in our jails while we pay for them to have thing i can't afford for my self. they are in jail for a reason so why do we need more people here to make more problems for our people when we do a good enough job of that. in my home town there are quite a bit and they are taking our jobs. a freind of my husbands was looking for a job in stone and there was none open because all them jobs are being taking by others coming in to our country. yes ok there is jobs they say that our people won't do so why not make the guys that are sitting in jail do these jobs. i could go on forever about this. i say we do what ever it takes to keep them there. the more that comes here the more problems we will have. we don't need it

I think they should be reported back to their countries and pay a fee for all the laws they broke. They should not be prized with a immigration amendment! Like I heard somebody says one day: "Our country (US) is not a hardware store, where you can go and buy some things and then you just leave..."
