You are right they all indeed have a story to tell and it might be helpful for the pro-illegals to actually speak with the illegals and hear those
I had worked for many years at different places with illegals. Many had no sad starving stories about their home country, some were even overweight.
Many had heard how much they get here by being illegal and take full advantage especially when having anchor babies.
Many save money from here and end up moving back to their own country. They have no desire whatsoever of becoming legal. Those that did want to stay
said they just didn't feel like waiting the time to become legal so they pay for false documents and cut to the front of the line.
The children brought here through no fault of their own are constantly demanding rights. They get in state tuition to colleges saving thousands of
dollars while our own kids can't afford to go to college. With limited seatings in colleges and illegal kids taking those seats, some citizen kids
can't even take the classes they want.
It's just a mess and has been going on for too many years. You just can't ignore citizens and those coming here through proper channels and shove
them aside while catering to the whims of and rewarding illegals. We don't get to pick and choose which laws to follow, neither should they. We
don't get special treatments, niether should they.
That is where so much of the resentment builds against illegals. They break laws, get special treatment and demand rights and respect. Where is the
respect for citizens and legal immigrants?
