The US government DOES welcome immigrants with open arms, I'm here, after all. You want the statistics on how much crime goes on in the US because of
illegals? Let alone that they are here illegally in the first place.
Gang bangers don't need amnesty they need jail and deportation. No one who breaks the law deserves anything. They are not contributing to the economy
as they don't pay taxes and they are, indeed, a drain on the resources of several states particularly those states bordering Mexico. I can't be
kicked out I'm here under a permanent refugee status, and will be a citizen by this time in 2010.
Don't talk to me about the hardships of illegals. I got here when I was 4 years old and we were broke and homeless pretty much for the first 2 years
we were here. My mother, brother, father and I slept in a ford festiva for 6 months in LA. But we clawed our way out of that mess and have become
productive and contributive members of American society. I have a brother serving in Iraq who is not yet a citizen.
My family and I sacrificed a hell of alot to be legitimate Americans. Just because I'm an immigrant doesn't mean I should have sympathy for those
who break the law.
I am not blind to their sacrifices either. But they do NOT pay the same as I do, and there are broke and hungry Americans that could use the jobs they
are pilfering. Instead of Mexico making Mexico better, the government there actually ENCOURAGES people to come here illegally because it is our
dollars, and our medical services, and our education, that suffers the expenditures. And it is our police and border patrol that have to deal with the
ridiculous crime rates.
