Do you think that our country (USA) supports illegals too much? When a middle income family, barely making it, can't get any support?

Absoutley NOT. and it sux that it happens that way. I am a middle income family. The only assistance we can get is rental assistance. Please understand I am totally gratefull for the help. But I think it is wrong that these imigrants get to come over into our country and be given homes, cars, and able to open restaurants, and gas stations with NO money. It is very wrong. We need to take care of our families who have been here since the begning and need the help.

oh good ?;) well at the risk of sounding MEAN , but you have to understand i live in TX so this is what I see every day ..... I see them on the news flying OUR flag upside down and trashing us cause we wont give them MORE , I see them proudly flying the flag of mexico thru our streets and well its great to be proud of you father country , but have some respect ... I see familyies like myself barley making it and getting trashed cause we apply for the benefits that we as citizens and taxpayers are entitled too , yea im all for wanting better for your family and such but if you really wanted that why dont you become a citizen and pay taxes like the rest of us ??I know its touchy but I live an hour from houston tx and they are still recovering from the last cop that was killed by an illegal immagrant, but then sadly we really dont have anyone to blame because WE keep hiring them for day labor etc ..... if we stopped doing that them maybe things would change ..... ~M~

Outside of a fair trial, I don't think they should have any rights. If they want rights, then become a citizen.

Yes, I belive we give too much support and sympathy to those who are here illegally and ignore our own people who are in need of just as much help if not more.

if they are not citizens then they dont have rights, so i dont get why our country keeps giving them our rights. If you wanna come to our country, become a citizen and Learn ENGLISH

I think they should have rights but not be allowed to excplote the U.S citizen who pay taxes and everything. I know that illegal immigrants comes here and have 5 to 6 children and do you know that they get money from the state to raise them. So imagne who pays? YOU who pays taxes and everything. They come here and some of them do not work but live in welfare and monye that they get for the kids. So my point is: They must have rights like evryone in this country but they have to work and not to profit from the American system.

I think immigration is a good thing for our country. America is all about diversity. It's one of the things that makes this country great. However, I do feel that any immigrant should be legal. Allowing too many rights for illegal immigrants will only hurt our economy and take jobs away from the people who actually deserve them.
