Can We Have a Reasoned Debate Over Immigration Reform?

I am always amazed by the harsh anti-immigrant comments posted on virtually any story discussing immigration on the web.  Here are a few select ones following a May 11 L.A. Times story "L.A. County officials worried about costs of immigration overhaul."  And, no, I did not make them up (and the spelling and grammer errors are in the originals.  My personal favorite:  "These people will never assimulate."  And a close runner-up:  "We are supposed to feel lucky for having a multi culteral society."

"Immigrant rights advocates said that because applicants for legal status will pay taxes, they should be entitled to a safety net."

Article [IV] The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

ISN'T THE COST FOR BREASTFEEDING MEXICAN ILLEGALS AN UNREASONABLE SEIZURE OF US TAXPAYER'S MONEY? The cost of housing MEXICO'S ARMY inside the US is the burden of Mexico.

Take a look at pictures of Van Nuys Blvd., near the civic center, in 1965 and compare them to today. Welcome to TJ, people!!!!!!

You mean ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE BLEEDING AMERICAN TAXPAYERS the way an invading army would?

The same way HITLER'S NAZIS bled Europe?

What have REAL AMERICANS been telling you OBABBLERS for years?????

For years Illegals lovers kept on telling that ILLEGALS pay more than their share. So where is teh problem. Ask Tony Valor, Golina and other Bankrupters (pro-illegals) of LA?

Many Mexicans in Mexico will communicate to each other, "Go north. USA is giving free services. You can get Drivers' license, heath and education. No lie. You can will even be allowed to vote in USA elections. They're proposing new immigrants to vote in elections. [LOL]. We can really mess things up in USA. [LOL}.

Liberals don't even want a border, most Democrats would rather give California back to Mexico.

Yet another perfect example of how these parasites that are here ILLEGALLY are far more of a burden on the taxpayers than what little if anything that these cockroaches contribute.

We are supposed to feel lucky for having a multi culteral society. Push #1 for English and #2 for Spanish. These people will never assimulate.
