I have no problem with immigrants coming to this country LEGALLY. They need to learn the language, and legally become a U.S. citizen. But most come illegally, some (not all) will do whatever it takes to get a job, including steeling someone's identity & lie about everything on their applications for employment. Unfortunately the companies here, in order to get cheap labor, knowingly hire illegals and don't care. That is part of the reason we have such a problem with illegals. Why wouldn't they want to come. They can get free medical care, foodstamps, cheap if not free housing, when the regular poor legal citizen cannot. They do not pay in anything into the system, why should they take all of our benefits that we are paying for, and that we probably will never receive. I know there homeland may be a place they cannot prosper, but with so many illegals coming here, our land cannot supply for so many people, when only part of us pay into the government. I know we have enough crime caused by legal citizens, but with immigrants comes crime also. I have personally seen a case where 2 illegals caused harm and serious damage, and just walked away with no liability for what they did, just because the police knew it would be too hard to follow up on who the people really were, and they knew they were probably illegals. So when that video says they are commiting no crimes when they come here for a better life, it is a lie. They steal (some of them) identities, lie about their status here, and draw benefits that they should not be able to draw. Those are all crimes as far as I am concerned. So , I have no pitty when they are rounded up like they were. They knew being here was illegal and they knew working was illegal. So they were well aware of what would happen when they were caught. I hope more people will come into the country the legal way, and enjoy living here, but not at the expense of other people.
My grandfather came here LEGALLY. He came here by way of Canada from Japan.
By the time he had a wife, and 4 kids, had paid for his small farm in Washington State, the US changed the rules of what LEGAL IMMIGRATION was for his RACE.. THEY DID THIS LEGALLY. His wife, american born, all of his children, american born, were forced into a INTERNMENT CAMP, where his wife died from lack of medicine delivering his 5th child. By the time he was released for his CRIMES, his land had been re-organized, to the LEGAL residents, and so he lost that too. LEGAL entry is a crock of bull as much as ILLEGAL entry. We might as well face it, AMERICA is a great country BECAUSE OF IMMIGRANTS. I believe that we need to examine the IRISH, ENGLISH, SCANDANAVIAN, SCOTTISH, WELSH, FRENCH, GERMAN races to see if their heritage and relatives had LEGAL entry into this country. IF NOT, Have these Latino's make room on the bus.
