AMEN! Those of us who are screaming about this *have been* affected personally (and probably still are).

It's not that people hate illegal immigrants, it's just that it seems they all are being supported by our money and hard work. I think thats what people resent.
And please don't misunderstand me, I don't hate immigrants either. As you've said, they only want to improve their lives and the lives of their family.
I think the danger lies in thinking of all immigrants as belonging to a group. In my experience, it's very hard to dislike indivuals, while very easy to dislike groups.
Great post. S&F.
Sorry OP you left out a very important word, Illegal...This changes the whole thread. Not many hate legal immigrants,
ok, so, i'd like to take a minute to explain my problem with the illegal issue.
