    To Observer, I do not support any illegals coming illegally. I speak from experience. Not every country is as gifted as the U.S. Understand their reasons for wanting to stay here legally. Let them wait in line to get citizenship..if thats what they want..

    To To Nukem; 25.4% of the illegals in the United States are on welfare and food stamps. Another fact, 93% of all street homicides are perpetrated by illegals. These are FBI stats!

    Hey LodiChica, if farm labor is so hard why don't the illegals become brain surgeons? do something where they can make some money! Or Tax accountants, or attorneys. don't complain about how hard their job is. Become a citizen legally and do the job you want!

    I do not have a problem with these brothers being here, they contribute to this country like every single one of us. I do not understand why Mexican people are the only ones being targeted when immigrants are of all kinds.

    Working illegally and complaining about low wages, is the same as, breaking into someone's house (Illegally) slipping and falling on the floor, then turning around and suing.. If you had not been there in the first place, that wouldnt have happened.
