"Unfortunately philosophical single sentences do not address the reality of dealing with 60,000 illegals and the additional load they place on our
system. America is truly exceptional, but it didn't get that way letting our system become overloaded with illegals and ignoring the citizens of our
own country. So many like to talk legality of illegals, and what as human beings we should be doing. None want to face the reality of what this cost.
At 17 trillion dollars in debt we are way past affording it.
Like most that want justice, caring, and jobs for illegals, they also want the homeless taken care of but not one will have the homeless stay at
their house. This is the difference between reality and fantasy it always sounds good, until its your wallet they reach into. Love to hate me, hate to
love me it doesn't matter, supporting this is just thinking with your heart and not your head. I am waiting for my dinner invite.. The whole
famdamily is packed."
Either you made a mistake, or you created a fantastic new word "famdamily"! I love it! Either way, you raise a bunch of critical points. We need to
take care of the problems we already have, like homelessness, unemployment, hunger, etc.
I heartily agree. But, but, what does that mean? Extending unemployment insurance, or food stamps, or WIC, or welfare, for example? Perhaps you
lol Famdamily has been around forever... Extensions wouldn't necessary if every time we dealt with illegals we just followed the law. I have a few
friends that went through Ellis Island they are very insulted by this nonsense it treats them with little respect for their accomplishments, efforts.
and citizenship they worked hard for. This seems to be the way for everything anymore, no personal responsibility, always having an excuse, and take
from others for your existence.
This was unimaginable when I was growing up, if you needed government help, in my family you were looked upon as lazy and not willing to work. My
first venture in business was a total failure from mistaking and trusting the wrong partner, I threw papers at night to make ends meet, while I worked
the business. I didn't ask for anything, this was my decision to do this, nobody created this problem but me. Any aspect of this concept is missing
today. Very sad really, and this attitude that something is owed is what will bring us down, because government will oblige to get the vote.
