Tell me again why it is wrong for the government to go from house to house every few years and ask for proof of citizenship?
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
Its not. There is no law that states that the government cannot do this.
The census workers will not ask questions about citizenship or immigration status.
Is that what you were referring to?
Why don't they do it? If they hit the town I live by the population would drop 5000 and the population sign on the edge of town wouldn't change.
I ain't sure what I am referring to, just Aggrivated
they need a warrant

Get some bad food at Taco Bell?
They like cheap labor?
Ewww ... no! I Drives me nuts when I see 12-18 year old children interpreting for a parent and the child speaks perfect English, translate.... been here long enough to be able to get around I get aggrivated when I hear a Walmart clerk say she did 50 money orders that day to Mexico and our economy is hurting but she is confirming that the money is leaving the country to buy goods and services out side the country.
speaking spanish, or being brown is not PC.
c'mon, man, this is the constitution
There's the 4th.
There's civil liberties.
Why doesn't the Government drug test every person once a week and throw everyone that fails in prison?
Then there's the point that most people understand that is we and our economy are much better off with the people that you are talking about being here.
I know, but they drive nice cars too, and I see them using W.I.C. cards and in Section 8 housing... Old Sammy is paying for them to be here.
You don't have rights if you are here illegally.
this is all the fruits of freedom.
we are free to spend the money we have earned in any manner we choose.
would you rather have them sending the money back to take care of their families or would you rather have their families here?
Build the wall need moats though. I feel ya. Went to a showing the other day and friend that died had a little sister that was married to an illegal. I'm pretty confident she couldn't understand her own husband. Asked her if she spoke any Spanish and the answer was no. Told her that has to suck when they're all speaking Spanish 247 and she has no fuking idea what they're talking about.
this is not true
Kill em all
The easier fix for that would be to make it easier for those that want to work and be a productive member of our society to come here legally.
You have to have $50,000 in the bank just to get a temporary visa to travel here if you are Mexican. Think about how tough that is. We don't grant citizenship to the people that need to come here. That's the problem.
If their families could get here, the money wouldn't leave.

You are correct.
The great thing about our Constitution is that is extended to everyone walking on our soil.
I guess yes, yes I am
ha ha ha...
certainly the honesty hurt, huh
Maybe they should check for drugs too while they are there.
Call me a bleeding heart, but where did the compassion for people go in our country.
It wasn't that long ago that Reagan did the right thing and let those that proved they were here to work stay to become productive member of our country.
i say we do an exchange....
we send all the people that refuse to work, and do not look for a job, and do nothing, and exchange them for all the mexicans that wanna come up here and work...
i could care less where you come from or who hatched you...
i could care less if you get government assistance because you are the working poor, and are climbing up as best you can...
but you refuse to work and just basically say fffk errywone?
yeah, an exchange sounds good... i like the idear
This is somewhat the practice that is in place to an extent. The government does need to follow through and make sure that anyone here illegally is being sent back if they are found guilty of any crimes, that's for sure, but I welcome those that are willing to come here and sacrifice themselves for the next generation of their family. That is all any of our ancestors did at one point.
The cheap labor is a plus, for sure. Most people want people out of the country for their own racist agendas, but would be terrified to see what would happen to the economy if we were forced to attempt to fill a lot of these jobs with Americans. They use taxes, insurance, and the such as an excuse, but don't realize, most immigrant workers are paying taxes and are trying to stay and support the new country in which they live. It is a small minority of them that are just here to send money back to their native countries.
