Look at everything that you and your wife had to go through. You did the right thing. Illegals break the law just by coming here and stealing social
security numbers and paying for false documents. They get rewarded?
#1. My wife came forward and said: "okay I'm illegal"... The penelty was she had to go back to Mexico for One Year and wait for the court to make a
decision. We did this.
#2. When I say enjoy the same rights... let me clarify... I'm not speaking for ALL Illegals in general... I mean the ones that have already built a
life here in the U.S. and can proove that they have been living here for 10+ years and have broken no laws. Those are the people that I'm defending.
Why would I defend them for breaking the law in the first place you might ask? for crossing our border? Because Mexico so F'ed up to begin with that
I'd do the same thing.
#3. If today's economy in the USA kept repeating it's self like Groundhog Day (just the economy) you'd find many Mexicans going back to where they
came from... I know a few that did just that because the economy in America is no greater than the economy in Mexico (as of now).
I admire you for your honesty
What a dilemma to have to deal with.
I could possibly agree with you regarding illegals that've been here 7-20+ years living life as a law-abiding, tax paying person(s)....This should
certainly carry a significant weight when the time comes to make their presence legal. However, I feel there should be some sort of amends to be made
for breaking the law in the first place. Personally, I would forego any punishments that would cause deportation or imprisionment. Perhaps a fee
should be assessed for every year of illegal status. Nothing so great that payment couldn't be met.
Encourage illegals to come clean and live here without fear of reprisal.
Now, let's deport the politicians that can't make this work!
