immigration is a hot topic at this point in time. Especially with all of the upcoming election. What are your thoughts? Are you an immigrant? Are your parents immigrants? Or perhaps your significant other?
Immigration has made the US what it is today and is great for the country.
Supporting millions of people "squatting" in the country illegally, not so much.
Absolutely agreed wilderness. As an immigrant here I worked extremely hard to adapt culture and reach success. It was far from the free ride and I absolutely resent anyone who comes here with intentions of living off of this country's citizens and resources
I agree with your statement...except for the "resent" part.
I don't hold on to indignation because I do not want to be bitter.
For me, there are many more beneficial ways to choose to feel.
I am all for immigration if it is done legally. We wouldn't be the country we are without the diversity that immigration brings to the table.

Because one have to constantly worry about being discovered in deported. I've unfortunately seen many who were reported and
After decades were deported without their children. Not a good situation

I cannot find a group that supports illegal immigration. Yet we cannot stop it. Now that is pathetic. So we must conclude that without saying it, some - many in America support it and do what they can to stop control of it. It would seem that this should be a target for midterm elections. Who does...

I heard a recent NPR, (National Public Radio), news story today that was presented in their own special Politically Correct way.I know that some folks think the term "illegal immigrant" is too mean for those poor folks just trying to find a better life for themselves, (and possibly...
