I was pretty amazed by ModernAcademia's post. Mostly because he doesn't live in America and obviously hasn't been dealing with the impact of the illegal problem in this country. As far as I understand he lives in Canada and is an Indian immigrant there.
I am more confused by his statement about everybody being illegal immigrants. I suppose he never heard of Ellis Island?

Whether you want to remember or not, whether you think it's currently important or not all white caucasians in North America are the sons and daughters of not only illegal immigrants but crusaders that came here with Genocide as their passports.
If you went to the future and read this story in a book you would look at these people as horrible human beings. Before reading on please take a pause, close your eyes and pretend you are looking back at this as so.
You want to say that we are not our ancestors?
Fine say it, but don't forget it.
And even if you refuse to remember it you still cannot call this your land.
So people should be able to go wherever their feet takes them.
It's so unfair, your ancestors invade this place and today you call others who come here illegally yet peacefully and you call them what you are but are exempt because of amnesty.
Your govt. sells guns, arms, puts a dictator in place in foreign nations, the people riot and you call them savages.
Your govt. imperializes, installs bases in foreign land and the people retaliate and you call them terroists.
Many, none here i'm sure, but many tell black people to go back to their country when it was their ancestors who brought them here in the first place against their will.
It's all so damn backwards, but you refuse to empathize because of the side of the fence which you reside in will hurt your conscience once you acknowledge it.
This is hypocrisity in it's highest form!

THE BULLCRAP is when some 3rd World FOOLS come to this country with the expectation of sucking our tits for free (no meaningful contributions to the economy), don't assimilate, don't speak English, have 8 babies, can't pay for their house, charge their CC like it's free money, etc...
That's THE G-DAMN TRUTH.

Why single out recent immigrants?
You have way more ammo to blame neocons, globalism, offshoring, this welfare state, corporate accounting fraud, bailouts, stimulus packages, charity fraud etc...
Illegals are just a needle in the haystack as far as this strained economy is concerned.
So again, why single them out?
They are just trying to settle and feed their families.
