Our European ancestors Took or Conquered this land and made it our own, are you suggesting the Hispanics do the same?
I'm not racist but If we didn't make is so easy for them to come here, they would have no choice but to fix the problems in their own countries.
Our ancestors conquered the land and have made it into one of the greatest nations in the history of known civilization. Unfortunately, our luxurious
lifestyle has given rise to a large number of people who suffer from a collective guilt that tells them they don't deserve to enjoy the fruits of
their ancestor's work. They funnel their guilt into all sorts of programs and ideals that pretty much mean anybody who hates the American ideal is
entitled to feel that way while simultaneously exploiting that ideal for their own gain. Their collective guilt also leads them to believe that
anybody who DOESN'T feel like handing over what their ancestor's worked and fought for is somehow unenlightened or uneducated.
The simple fact here is that this is America. Everyone here has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To suggest that the
pursuit of the American ideal of happiness somehow extends to people who sneak into this country is criminal. There are many metaphors for the
invasion we're experiencing. Suffice to say that if the guy eating your dinner isn't you, you'd probably expect him to at least have the courtesy

I don't feel guilty because I was born in a country founded on ideals that made it great.
I don't feel guilty because I have more opportunities than someone else.
I don't feel guilty because I have made the most of the opportunities I was given.
I don't feel guilty because you think I should.
An illegal immigrant is a criminal by that very definition.
An illegal immigrant is NOT less than human and should not be treated as such.
An illegal immigrant should also NOT be allowed to stay in this country.
Any person who wants others to conform to their ideals (language, culture, etc.) should be prepared to enforce that mandate by force, physical or
Any person going into a situation where they can not enforce their own cultural mandates should either adapt or leave.
Standing up and shouting for "equality" that favors ignorance and criminal activity ignorant and criminal in itself.
This is neither democrat nor republican.
