    Both sides have sold off our sovereignty for years. Ever heard of NAFTA, CAFTA, GAAT, and WTO?

    Still waiting for some Republican to present evidence of someone illegally voting in a federal election who has NOT gone to jail for it.

    That piñata needs to be much bigger.

    " I wonder how many of them could look WWII veterans in the eye and still want to sell out our Sovereignty."

    Can I ask those WWII vets if their grandparents had green cards? The waves of immigration during the turn of the prior century were much bigger, relative to the native population.

    The difference is those who came here during the 1800’s and early 1900’s were legal immigrants who were documented. Those in the late 1900’s and now into the 2k’s are those of the illegal type. It’s not that conservatives are against immigrants, it’s that we’re against illegal immigrants. Go to any other sovereign nation, without proper documentation, and let me know how that turns out for you.

    once more for d leg1
    while doing research for a city election in 2009 i found of the 70 people i know in my precinct who voted in 11/08 were 2 dead people [02/08 and 07/08] that is only 3% in order to have a case you have to grab them in the act when i found a few months later that dead had voted nothing could be done

    the senate bill is a slap in the face of legal immigrants

    It will be countered by the southern states restricting voting.

    The U.S., like Europe, is looking at decreasing birthrates. The answer down the road to pay for those folks, gee, even Republicans, getting social security and other benefits, will be requiring immigrants to work and pay those future bills.

    Not nearly as restrictive as Obamacare’s choke hold on business and Radish’s granny panties.

    Not that I ever do give any particular credence to McCoy’s opinions, but (one more time) why would I pay attention to the opinion of a person who doesn’t know the difference between a noun and an adjective?

    I’m not sure why you disagree with Wraithkin – and me.

    They have broken the law. There are procedures and protocols regarding immigrating to this country, which must be adhered to for any honest immigrants. The procedures work, if you are eligible. If you are not eligible, you are not entitled to immigrate. The procedures have actually been considerably streamlined over the last thirty years or so, but that is to bring technical workers in legitimately. Cheap, unskilled labour has to take their own chances.

    Those illegals are keeping our unemployment rolls high. The chronic whine that ‘Americans don’t want to work’ is more smoke and mirrors to hide the fact that employers have no intention of paying a living wage as long as they can use cheap, illegal labour.

    I’m with those who advocate severe punishment for businesses (and the well off) who hire illegals, and deportation of the illegals.

    Why are you so supportive of criminal behaviour?

    " … getting social security and other benefits, will be requiring immigrants to work and pay those future bills."

    Uh … so you are willing to throw the workforce we have now, not to mention the young people coming up, under the bus.

    Why?

    People are looking for work – work which will allow them to cover their modest overheads, and be reasonably reliable for at least a couple of years. Is that really too much to ask? What exactly are the industries who are so determined to use the cheapest possible labour, even if they have to break the law (and require their workers to do the same), doing for the country?

    The answer is ‘they are destroying it’. Their greed is destroying the country, and its time to call a halt to it. Why should we throw our own people under the bus to support lawlessness?

    Your contempt for your fellow Americans is quite disturbing. It would better be directed to your politicians and government.

    @Wraithkin

    The requirements for those European immigrants in the late 19th and early 20th century were for all purposes non existent. You had to have a name (and in many cases where the interviewer could not even pronounce, let alone write the name, it then became Smith of Jones. Other than that you had to be breathing (yep, being dead definitely decreased your chances of becoming an American)! The requirements for legal immigrants are now far greater. That is the simple truth, then we wanted people let in, and now we do not. It is that simple!!

    “The requirements for those European immigrants in the late 19th and early 20th century were for all purposes non existent.”

    You are being too kind to Wraithkin. Documents were utterly non-existent. No visa, no passport, not even a birth certificate. If you could afford the ticket for the boat ride, you were let in. In places like Ellis Island, they wrote down your name or as close to it as they could & waived you in. Other places weren’t even that formal.


    Generally, people arriving from overseas registered if they planned on staying for good, so they could become citizens. Many came here thinking they would eventually go home, so they didn’t bother registering until they’d been here for years, if ever.

    We’re all immigrants here, even the Native Americans. Most of our ancestors didn’t have to jump through the hoops that modern immigrants go through. Most of our ancestors had the same problems assimilating & being accepted that modern immigrants go through. Most earlier immigrants were actually slower to learn English. It was a lot easier to live in ethnic enclaves with no meaningful contact with English speakers than it is now back then, and many immigrants kept their kids away from public schools.
