Illegal Immigration

Grrr... This is really annoying me.. While I click away at work, I listen to talk radio from Houston (www.ktrh.com) and it seems like everyday, they are always talking about this topic. These people who are in our country illegally need to get over themselves and realize that they are breaking the law and are not allowed to be here. If they want to become American citizens so badly, they should do it the correct and legal way.... It is disrespectful to our laws and also disrespectful to those permanent residents who have become citizens. That is total crap....

AND..Undocumented students, or those here illegally, can get in-state tuition if they sign a piece of paper agreeing that they would take the proper steps to become documented.. This is one example that shows that these people get enough rights and privileges as it is.. If they want anything additonal, then they need to take the proper steps to become a legal citizen.

Yesterday I was driving down Dallas Drive and there was this big group of...well, lets just call them low-income employees, standing on the side of the road with poster board signs saying, "We are not criminals!" and crap like that. they were waving american flags and were like, "Dios bless american!" I thought it was funny. Like, half the signs were in spanish. ha ha

I would agree that it is disrespectful for illegal immigrants to think they should be granted automatic amnesty, or that they should flux their economic muscle to "show us who's boss."

However, I also think the U.S. House bill is crap. Building a wall and making 11 million immigrants felons are not solutions to the problem; rather, they add to it and risk costing illegal immigrants their lives, fortunes and established families.

Best to follow Sen. John McCain's example, in my opinion. Hopefully the U.S. Senate will devise a program for conditional amnesty and pave the way for these folks to become citizens, subject to taxation with representation.
