Liberals just love to dance around touchy subjects with politically correct terms. If you are within our borders you are obligated to abide by our laws. The very fact the government is unaware of an individuals presence and therefore their identity makes them a potential threat economically or criminally.

Yes my grandparents came the same way. Surely you are aware that when our grandparents came the US did not have the same immigration laws as we do now? All you pretty nuch had to do back then was show up. immigration today is much more difficult, and these Hispanic workers don't have a legal avenue to immigrate here. Believe me, if they did they would take it, the risk the take to come here is tremendous.
Hey understand that I am not in favor of illegal immigration, and I love America just as much as you do. I appreciate your service. I was never in the military, but my dad was. I'm just very tired of hearing all of the false, unfair arguements against the illegals. I happen to have close relationships with numerous illeglas and they are good, family people.
We can reform the system so we could keep the labor pool and and have these folks pay for their own schooling, medical care, ect. Most politicans and economists are very aware of this. The problem is that it's political suicide to back this kind of reform because there are so many patriotic Americans like yourself that don't really understand the issue and want to blame the illegals for all of our problems. Clinton, Bush, McCain, Ted Kennedy, Obama...they were all in favor of reform, but they all took a political beating over it and had to drop it. McCain did a complete 180 on his policy during the 2008 election b/c he knew that the voters were against it, and he even admitted this publicly during his campaign.
