    Correct. It is the fact that they are breaking the law. If an immigrant has become a citizen or has a green card or temp visa I have no problem with that.

    By the way Israel is spelled wrong in your siggy.

    I guess alot of you don't realize that the Mexican population is higher than the black population here in America. We employ these guys and are actually higher paid than most americans that work for us.... because they are willing to work and learn about our company more than others are.

    Thats the whole issue if they all paid taxes,and spent the money here instead of sending it to Mexico. It would help our economy, but thats not going to happen

    Call, fax or email to support the strongest house bill. Don't let our Senate put out some milk toast compromise legislation:angry: . If they do, vote the bums out whether GOP or DEMS.

    The U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation last December that has drawn widespread protests. It focuses on border security and enforcement. It makes undocumented presence in the country a felony and calls for construction of a fence along parts of the U.S. border with Mexico. It also would require employers to check the status of employees. It includes no temporary program favored by Bush.
