How exactly is this Amnesty again?
They have to pay 5,000 dollars, no small fee for the working poor, and they have to go back to their country and reapply. Its actually just short of
mass deportation, at least their giving them a chance to come back...
The thing with Americans is: Americans think that Americans are the only people that really matter in the end. THAT IS NOT TRUE.
These people are coming to create a better life for themselves and their families, they are here to work and contribute. This bill is not even
Amnesty, and what is wrong with Amnesty anyways? Have you people no hearts? Do you care only for yourselves, you couldnt give a damn whether poor
spanish people need to come to America to survive?
Do you know whats happening in Central America? Its turmoil over there. The corruption is so bad over there, people are suffering. They are starving,
theyre being killed in the streets, especially in Mexico with the revolution and drug cartels (funded and protected by Washington, thats why theyre
not doing anything about it). Of course your gonna have masses of people rush over here. So what are you gonna do? Turn them away? Force them back to
their country to DIE?
If we really cared for each other like were supposed to, we would let them in here, give them aid and comfort, let them work here to support
themselves, as we speak out against the corrupt governments who are responsible for all this. If our governments did what their supposed to do, they
would work to end the corruption and evil of the Mexican government and others, and help raise the standard of living, so THAT THE ILLEGALS HERE NOW
CAN GO BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY, AND NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT DYING. We are in Iraq, supposedly, to help the people from corrupt government, right? Well
what about right next door in Mexico? They need our help more than the Iraqis, the Iraqis want us out of there. If you really cared for other
countries, and for your own for that matter, youd end the corruption in Mexico first, and not worry about ending it in Iraq, which doesnt effect
I havent heard anyone here or in Washington speak out against the corruption of the Mexican government, and all the countries in Latin America, these
people are being raped by their governments, forced into slave labour where they work for pennies a day. Of course theyre gonna rush over here. But I
dont hear anyone speaking out against the sweat shops, and drug cartels, and all of that. Instead, they speak out against the poor victims of all
this, the poor people who only come here to work and survive. Its so heartless, you people should be ashamed of yourselves.
For those who dont agree with this bill, I ask you this: What is the alternative???
It seems to me that anything that is not mass deportation will be called Amnesty. YOU CANT MASS DEPORT 20 MILLION PEOPLE OUT OF THE ECONOMY, YOUR
COUNTRY WILL FALL IN RUINS AROUND YOU. You cant, its just not realistic, in fact its very dangerous to your livelihood. And whos gonna pay for it? YOU
ARE! The taxpayers will have to pay for the finding, and rounding up, detaining, prosecutions, and deportations of these people, all 20 million of
them, cuz thats the real number. You cant afford that. The worst part is, once you deport them, theyre still gonna come back anyways! They always do!
Youll have the same problems to complain about all over again.
Its not realistic to deport these people, it just isnt. They are here, you mays well find a way to integrate them. This is NOT Amnesty anyways,
Amnesty is giving them a blank sheet, saying "oh you can be a citizen, have a nice day" thats not how it is. These people have to pay large fines, I
dont think I could even pay a 5000 fine, Id go in debt. They have to go back to their country and reapply, at the "back of the line" as it says.
They can apply for temporary visas that expire after 2 years, where then theyll have to go through the process. This is not Amnesty at all, in fact,
it seems to me this is just short of total deportation, again, at least theyll have the chance to come back...
So, grow hearts people. Have sympathy for these poor families who only want to live in peace, and support their families, and live a comfortable
lives. That is the right of every human being, and all the great Masters have told us, we are responsible for each others welfare. We are all one
human family, so we all have a responsibility to take care of each other. But we dont, we bomb each other, kill each other, hate each other, show
complete apathy to each other, and are so selfish we only care for our well being, the hell with everyone else. I think its time for a change.
