Im not signing this . I dont condone any illegal immigrant coming here and getting things handed to them . Americans work hard to live the American dream . If these people want to prosper and give their families good lives , they should do it the right way and stop trying to beat the system . I work hard for everything I got , so should they . If u can sneak your way into this country then theres no excuse for you to get anything handed to u .

Nothing wrong with that. Illegals don't ask for Americans' jobs to be taken away..close minded Americans ask for illegals' jobs to be taken away. Besides if illegals were to be eradicated from this country you should be the first one to start picking our tomatoes Eric! Andale!

Illegals DO ask for Americans' jobs to be taken away! Every job an illegal gets should have gone to an American. by "taking illegals' jobs away", as you call it, we're returning the stolen property to the Americans.
And yes, if illegals were removed, Americans would go back to picking tomatoes or whatever else, but at American wages, not Third World wages.
Also, look up the DREAM Act. Picking tomatoes does NOT require a college degree, so why do illegals want their betters to pay for their college?

That is unless by America you mean Natives and by illegal immigrants you mean white Europeans, then they think they should recieve the exact same benefits they whine about Mexicans wanting.....hypocritical fools.

Just like most non-native or non-hispanic peoples dont remember or dont realize that the Native nations have not only been long time neighbors and even friends with Mexicans/Hispanics but that many of them are one in the same blood, the same is true between natives and canadians.

Gill & Santiago either u havent read the bill or are hiding some facts. Its not called amnesty, but in reality it is. Certain groups or classes will get citizenship within 5 years; that's specified. The unspecified is the vague wording whereby the DHS secretary can determine other groups or classes do not have to wait the 10-13 yrs. What is also unclear is whether that determination grants authority to waive the fines and other requirements.

IMO the bill is smoke and mirrors to appease both sides.

Also, as these invaders send much of the money they make here back to their families in the "old country," it removes wealth from the US (it is the second greatest producer of income to Mexico for example). There is plenty of justice. It is justice for people who break the law to be punished. Being sent home is a punishment which plenty of US citizens in prisons and jail would gladly accept.

Please note that just about every criminal commits the crime in which he/she is involved in order to "improve their lives and those of their families" in some respect or another. Thieves steal to get money to improve things. Drug dealers do the same. Drug users do it to feel better. Murders kill in order to remove an impediment or just to feel good. Therefore, using that as an excuse for the actions of the invaders for breaking our immigration laws does not work.

I have answere the garbage excuse about "coming here for a better life" above by saying, in short, that is why almost every crime is committed. The crime they all commit is the one of breaking our immigration laws. They also are stealing jobs and benefits. They also put a drain on our public education system by sending their kids to schools that are paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Their children need more time and attention from the teachers, in most cases, than the US born children because they cannot speak English.

Liberty and justice for all applies to US citizens. The US cannot - no matter how much some would like us too - support the entire world. We are broke. Part of the cause for our financial situation is trying to support and protect the entire world. STOP. Take care of US first. Then, if and when anything is left, help others.

The immigrants are not looking for any charity they are looking for a chance to survive and live just like the rest of us. Half the American people take for granite what they have handed to them we are born with the papers and tools we need to succeed they aren't. American people have become very ignorant judging and lazy. Most Americans wouldn't do the jobs these people do while hidding in the shadows. None of us are perfect and until we are we should work on whom we are before we judge another human being. Everyone will have there own judgment day and it will be when you are standing in front of god, so choose

Please stop saying things like: "Americans wouldn't do the jobs these people do while hiding in the shadows." The sad truth is that Americans are very happy to do these jobs - at FAIR wages. But the problem lies with the organizations that continually seek cheap labor. They purposely seek to "hire" illegal immigrants to perform these jobs, since they can pay them “off the books,” at very cheap wages - illegally cheap wages. These same organizations actively turn away legal Americans from...

These same organizations actively turn away legal Americans from these jobs because they do not want to pay legal wages.

If these same organizations were to hire legal Americans, they would be required by our laws, to pay them a LEGAL MINIMUM WAGE as set by our federal and state laws. Organizations, such as restaurants, hotels, farms, etc, perpetually break the law by hiring illegal workers to perform tasks at wages well below the legal U.S. minimum wage requirements. Thereby, denying Americans access to jobs, and contributing to our national unemployment crisis.

Break the cycle and keep it legal. LEGAL immigrants; LEGAL workers; LEGAL wages.

No, kick them out, and make them either seek fair wages IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES, or else seek to come into America FAIRLY, as in wait in line with everyone else.
Besides, the last 8 Amnesties we've had, as soon as the illegals got legalized, their first act was to demand American wages, and their second was to demand American unemployment! What makes you think this bunch will be any different?

And when my child was STANDING UP IN CLASS RECITING THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE..THE MEXICAN CHILD BEHIND HER is saying FUCK THE UNITED STATES..AND YOU WONDER WHY I GET PISSED?

Wrong, Americans could do better with the jobs and resources illegals take up, there would be less pollution with fewer cars on the road. The money does NOT stay in America, it gets siphoned to Mexico. God didn't make a difference in us, they did. How many cannot speak the language yet, then demand we translate everything for them at OUR expense?
If YOU want to help them, go ahead, but don't make them EVERYONE ELSE'S burden! Eventually, you'll see how expensive and ungrateful they are, and you'll want them gone too!

It also burns me that Connecticut wants to give them drivers licences I thought that was a privilege ( so they say ) If our lieing politicians that support these company’s that hire illegals start enforcing the law and fine these company’s to pulling there licences like they should we wouldn’t have this problem in the first place. now what about these nail parlers and restaurants owed by immagrents that don’t pay all there taxes.

Are you implying Mexico doesn't contribute 60% of our illegals, and the countries south of Mexico don't pump an additional 20% MORE? (Which IS Mexico's fault, by dint of Mexico not stopping them), but I guess all Mexico really wants is for the Third World poor and violent to be America's problem, not Mexico's?

When my dad was married to my mom it was durring a time when you automatically could get your papers for being married to a citizen but that not why he married her! He told my mom not to help him he was gonna do it on his own i am 25 now and that conversation took place before i was born! My dad is still not a citizen! He works hard to support his family! Has never gotten any assistance! In paying bills, supporting kids and a house who in the hell has money left to pay for the paper work to become a citizen!!!???

I don't know, but they seem to have money to pay the coyotes. And they have the courage and energy to fight Americans and the American government in OUR country...Why can't they either use that money to come in LEGALLY, or go back to Mexico en-masse and fight their fellow criminals to take Mexico back from them?
Maybe because it's easier to fight Americans who won't kill them for breaking our rules?

Or are you just glad your illegal relatives are making our country worse instead of making theirs better? And why do illegals have to wave it in our face, "We're here and you're too law-abiding to do anything about it" or "We Will Not Comply"? What would happen if Americans told Mexico or any other country which laws we will or won't obey?
More pointedly, how much shorter would the Americans' lifespans be if we pulled the same shit in another country--including Mexico--that illegals do here?

PS, noone is GUARANTEED citizenship. It's like applying for a job. Unless you saved your employer's life or the lives of his children or he owes you in some way, your application depends on your skills, and often whether or not the interviewer likes you. If you are rejected, you can't FORCE them to hire you, right? Why is it OK for a Corporation to reject someone, but not a whole NATION?
Moreover, you apply some form of discrimination in your dating life, you would fight strenuously if...

They come from (largely) third world kleptocracies and are in favor of the sorts of economic policies that have kept Mexico (a VERY resource rich country) in ruins and have ruined most central and south American countries, have ruined the economies of Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece and are chipping away at the rest of Europe (they didn't ruin Russia and the former republics as most of them were basket cases anyway, but they really didn't help).

Most of those marchers were socialists and communists (that's what May Day IS).

That said, I'm all in favor of *legal* immigration. My grandparents came here from Albania, which was a marginal country before the asshole communists took it over and made it a complete shithole, and I'm INCREDIBLY greatful. I think anyone who wants to come here, work hard and be a part of the kind of country the US was designed to be should be able to come here. I also thing "democratic socialists" and assorted fellow travelers should move back to central and south America, Europe or Asia where there's already a plethora of countries with a variety of social and economic systems to their taste.
