I'm a tax payer and I'm forced to play the game, so I'm in it. Of course all tax payers pay for it. Who's gonna pay for all them babies being born? Who's paying for the welfare and disability? You think that all of them will work and pay taxes? And again with the blame game; If the CIA has wronged Mexicans then they need to file a law suit.
Seriously. But blaming all Americans is just uncalled for. Absolutely ridiculous. We owe them nothing. Illegal invaders have no rights here that Americans enjoy.
It's a complicated issue. It really is. There are no easy answers but we can't hand the keys to the place over to people who're breaking and entering. Tens of millions of illegals are here right now and many sure to follow. It's even happening in my little town. A bunch of them came by way of the Mexican restaurant. But ICE caught 50 of them, thanks to tips. Not to mention the shootouts, rapes, stabbings and murders that have occurred where they're all held up at didn't help them either.
Like it or not, America has borders, formed by settlers, wars and laws. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into the forming of America(do not apply your "native Americans" and "slaves" here for your argument).

As I said, hero, you do with your crap what you will, but you won't drag it onto my land or my families and you and your friends certainly won't just waltz in on it, either. Guarantee you that. I'll keep mine. And you're nowhere near beside of me as most the land around me is family-owned and will stay that way like it has for many years.
Adam who? Never heard of him and neither did anyone who WOULD KNOW that I asked. He had # to do with the ground that I own or the mountain that my family tamed and made the biggest industrialized boom towns in the US for a while. Maybe he was standing on top of the mountain watching? lol
If TSHTF, I'll give my life for what is right. And my life won't come easy. Do you like buttered or plain? I have a field of corn.
You're the one strutting around here with your arms bowed out claiming that you've paid your dues and that nobody else has. You've got some nerve....
Sure. A big hero like you knows everyone on this board personally and have it all figured out. Maybe it is you who hasn't "wandered far enough"? Some people are late bloomers. Some people wear bloomers. Some bloomers never bloom.
You obviously have a horse in this race. I don't. My mind is uncorrupted on this issue. Illegal Invasion of the United States is a crime. It hurts Americans in many ways. There's so much proof of this in any town or city that has an illegal alien problem. You may like that, IDK. You can spin back whatever convoluted crap that you will but it matters not. You've made your stance very clear; that you aid and abet criminal invaders. I will not.

While i detest what my government does, i have to admit that I willingly continue to pay taxes to fund them doing what I detest. I have consented to their behavior with my silence.
I believe we owe them. We pissed on their rug, and owe them a new one.
