As much as I hate being a broken record, that is a terrible argument for illegal immigration, and not just because you're appealing to emotion. Take a further look at history, and you'll see that America was conquered. Your ancestors being here first doesn't justify your disrespect for the country's laws. If you want to enter the country, do it legally. No one has a right to illegally do anything.

I'm sorry, but my grandparents, both sets where illegals, from Ireland, different time, same situation. If it wasn't for compromise almost none of us would be here...

This is a local news video about what this thread speaks of.
Just for an added touch.
Thanks for that video, I will try to get that put into the main OP.

Illegal Immigrants need not apply...
Im pretty sure that anyone against the law is pretty much against it because its going to force discrimination. You can't just ask a person to hand over their papers because they seem to be an illegal immigrant.
The air has a pre civil war with a little bit of Nazi Germany feel to it..
