    Stop calling illegal aliens “human resources” they are illegals. Why didn’t they operate their business in their own country?

    - So are all the US citizens who have committed crimes whether the crimes are traffic violations or criminal violations also called illegals. They’ve done something illegal, so we should call them illegals. Correct?
    - Anyone who is a human is a human resource. Some are just more resourceful than others. We need more resourceful people in our country. We need more entrepreneurs. It’s going to take resourceful people and entrepreneurs to get us out of this economic slump. Therefore, I will gladly welcome more resourceful people to this country, because it’s the smart thing to do. I choose to see the big picture; people with small minds choose to see only the small picture.
    - Do we need immigration reform? Yes. We need the DREAM Act, and we also need more immigration reform. We need more resourceful, hard working people in this country, and we need to allow them to come here legally. It, however, can’t take several years to get them here.

    If you went to another country illegally would they send you home and let the kids stay? NO they go with their parents

    So you want to use our limited tax dollars to gather them all up and transport them out of the country. You realize that there are millions of them. Correct? What do you think that that would cost? How would you go about doing it? Who would do it? Many of you say to send them back “home,” but someone has to do it and it will come at a cost—a huge cost. How will this silly idea be financed?

    Could you please stop typing the same thing over and over? You don’t have to gather these people up and send them home. You enforce the laws such as workplace enforcement, e-verify, birthright citizenship and the BS amnesty laws and they’ll leave all on their own.

    - So are all the US citizens who have committed crimes whether the crimes are traffic violations or criminal violations also called illegals. They’ve done something illegal, so we should call them illegals. Correct?

    Please step away from the keyboard, you’re becoming irrational and look foolish.

    - Oh, so in these tough economic times you invade businesses one-by-one, and you hit the employer with a big fine or you incarcerate him/her. Is that a good idea in bad or good economic times? Of course, during good economic times few citizens are worried about this topic. They’re too busy spending money that they don’t have which eventually results in the next economic crisis, but not to worry, they can just blame someone else for the crisis—can’t blame blacks or women anymore so let’s blame the immigrants.
    - They aren’t going to just leave on their own. There are more opportunities here than elsewhere. I, for one, can’t blame them for being ambitious and resourceful and hardworking. Those are traits that I share with them; I admire those traits. I wish the more citizens shared those traits.
    - As an employer I’m going to hire the best, most productive person for the job. I’m going to go out on a limb here, but I think that the majority of employers think like me.

    And how did you do it, BenjaWiz? What was the process that you followed to become what you call legal?

    I have a question for anyone who can answer. Who will pay for this 4 year education for the illegal immigrants child IF the DREAM act passes?
    Should an illegal immigrants child get a free 4 year education? What about a citizens child? Where is their free 4 year education?

  • Comm_reply

    -With the DREAM Act only 2 (not 4) years of college is required, but I would expect that many will continue and will get a BS or BA degree. Like other students they will be eligible to get loans. If they have good grades, perform well on the ACT or SAT test, and meet scholarship criteria, they can apply for scholarships. I would be interested in sponsoring the college education of these highly motivated, bilingual students. I see them as an asset to our country. If they are exceptionally talented, then I want them to stay here and not take their talents elsewhere. Our nation needs them. The US is no longer number one. Too many countries now have children that are surpassing the abilities of US children. Maybe US children are growing too spoiled.
    -Unless a student has earned exceptionally good grades and has demonstrated a desire to learn, I don’t think that any student deserves a “free” college education regardless of whether or not she or he has the proper papers. .

    I’m assuming you’re a democrat exercise. we’re those bankers and politicians who gave out loans that sold our countries future for the next 20 years (hopefully only 20 years) being “resourceful” and “productive”.

    What’s the next law we can break? If it’s OK to break our federal immigration laws under the guise of trying to get ahead in life and looking for a better life what can I get away with? Ponzi schemes? Dealing drugs? Selling government secrets?

    I just want a better life for my family! Damn the rules and all the people who obeyed the laws!

    Those bankers and politicians were US citizens, and they are being rewarded for their bad behavior. Those bankers were provided lots of taxpayer dollars to get their banks back in the black, and most kept their high paying jobs and received taxpayer paid bonuses.
    -Immigrants are almost twice as likely as native-born Americans to start a business.
    -Immigrants founded more than half of the high-tech companies in Silicon Valley.
    -Immigrants are more likely to earn an advanced degree, invent something, and be awarded a U.S. patent.
    These sentences were taken word-for-word from IMMIGRANT, INC. If I were a banker, I’d be seeking out immigrant entrepreneurs and giving them business loans; I’d quit giving home loans to those who don’t have the money to buy houses.
    bluezook, I think that you are angry, but you’re directing your anger at the wrong people. You are actually probably angry at the same group that I am and they are US citizens.

    But exercise, those bankers were just trying to better their lives! Maybe on a different level than someone who sneaked across boarder and ignored a sovereign countries immigration laws.

    They were just working the scheme bro!

    Just like these illegals are doing and when you make different shades of gray under the guise of “the rules don’t apply to me” is where you make loopholes in the future for more fraud.

    These illegals are no better than the bankers or wall street corporate thieves you despise. Both are “working the system”. Make the rules apply to every or just throw them in garbage can.

    “working the system” – seems so innocent when it’s something you want, no?

    It’s not necessarily a matter of wanting; it’s a matter of needing. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, we need immigrants. I know that it is difficult for us to admit, but immigrants have more self-discipline and work harder than most home grown Americans. Somewhere along the way home grown Americans lost their way. Yes, we need immigrants to start businesses for us and to create jobs for us especially now.

    Keep in mind that these kids haven’t broken any laws.

    Those bankers were simply greedy. Greed is not based on needs; it’s based on wants.

    Speaking of “the rules don’t apply to me,” do you remember former President Richard Nixon? He was a republican, correct?

    I don’t know how a bunch of male illegal aliens standing outside of a 7-Eleven staring at, ogling and discussing females going in and out of the store while waiting for work shows they are more disciplined/harder working than home-grown Americans.

    By the way exercise, over 4 MILLION immigrants managed to make it through the USA’s immigration system LEGALLY last year.

    What this NIGHTMARE ACT and YOU are promoting is making the rules apply when it’s convenient. So there’s FOUR MILLION immigrants this year to who can fill those roles you’re touting LEGALLY.

    Their no better than anyone else tying to circumvent the system. The rules apply to everyone or no one in a lawful society.

    Illegal Aliens should have and get nothing, first of all. We don’t need their “dirty” money mixed in with the hard working U.S. Citizens’ money and Legal Residents’ money of this country. We cannot afford more immigrants for so many reasons. I recommend Center for Immigration Studies’ website for info.

    Re: College education – they qualify for minority status and the benefits afforded them.

    Re: Starting businesses – they qualify for minority status and the benefits afforded them, as well as help from the SBA.

    Truthfully, exercise 3, it is YOU who seems angry to me.

  • exercise3 12/13/2010 5:48am

    Then let’s change the laws. That’s what this is all about, isn’t it? —changing the existing laws and making new laws? Our current laws are antiquated. Let’s allow more immigrants into this country legally. Our country is in need of risk-takers who think smart and dream big. Support the DREAM Act.

  • Comm_reply
    bluezook 12/13/2010 7:12am

    We had FOUR MILLION LEGAL IMMIGRANTS in 2010 alone exercise. Almost the population of Colorado. Our country has risk takers, both LEGAL immigrants and American Citizens who are struggling to make ends meet that play by the rules and follow the laws at hand.

    - The USA accepts more LEGAL immigrants than any other nation on earth (look it up), please stop making it sound like we’re not doing our share with immigration already – while all the while ILLEGALS sneak through our borders thumbing their nose at our immigration laws then expect to be rewarded with a backdoor amnesty such as the NIGHTMARE ACT while there’s millions more playing by the rules to try and become a citizen of the US legally

    There’s nothing the matter with our immigration laws except for the illegals who for some un-Godly reason feel that they’re above those laws.


  • Meeha 12/13/2010 7:38am

    This bill is a slap in the face to those of us who followed the rules of the immigration standards of the United States of America and will do nothing more than provide incentive for more illegals to cross the borders with their children waiting for the next amnesty.

    Yes, this is amnesty for a lot of people who do not deserve. If you think only children who were brought here will benefit from this your either blind or posturing. Every illegal who crossed the border will apply for the dream act and be given 10 YEARS AMNESTY for simply applying.


    My proud new country has plenty of immigrants that are struggling to find work and feed their family, don’t believe the lies that that this bill proposes or reward people for breaking the law.

  • KillaFlav 12/13/2010 8:13am

    As I read over this thread, it seems to be full of opinions. While everyone has the right to one, it’s not a solid means to base a law on. Everyone should be looking into the facts regarding this issue. If you hate drinking milk it doesn’t mean we should pass a law against the production of milk. If you have a valid argument against the Dream Act, and you can back it up with a legitimate source then contribute that to the discussion. But coming on here and spewing your hate speech just makes you look ignorant. Get out of the closed minded bubble you’re in and stop reading partisan blogs that just back up your opinions. They’re not FACTS. You’re not contributing to this discussion and in all likelihood, you’re probably not contributing much to society either.

    FACT: Illegal immigrants tried to circumvent the laws of the United States of America in order to gain citizenship for themselves and their children.

    Care to refute?

  • Comm_reply
    exercise3 12/13/2010 1:12pm

    Yes, I do care to refute. None of the immigrants that I know or have known came to the US to gain citizenship for themselves and/or their children. Each that I know or have known came here to build a better life for his/her family, and if I were in their shoes, I would proudly say that I would do the same. I wouldn’t do it because I wanted to break any laws or because I wanted to gain citizenship; I would want more opportunities for my children. I, of course, would teach my children the value of a good education and the value of working hard. Wouldn’t nearly all of us want and do this for our children?

    OK. They broke the law. What is a fair and reasonable punishment? Is deportation fair and reasonable in this case? That is the point of disagreement, not whether it’s a crime.

    The police don’t impound your car the first time you’re caught 10 MPH over the speed limit, and may not give you a ticket at all if you can give a good reason why you were speeding (i.e. on the way to the emergency room).

  • bluezook 12/13/2010 2:34pm

    (Yes, I do care to refute. None of the immigrants that I know or have known came to the US to gain citizenship for themselves and/or their children)

    Then how do you explain all those pictures of illegals holding up signs and marching in DC for their “right” to become a citizen. Do a Google search on “dream act” and look up the images. Are you serious? Do you believe what you write on this page?

    (Wouldn’t nearly all of us want and do this for our children?)

    Once again, the point that you never addressed; where does it end? What laws are OK to break in the name of ‘just wanting a better life’?

    You’re like debating with a 12 year old.

    Your bullying doesn’t faze me. Why do you fear these people so much? What scares you about them—their abilities, their work ethic, their self-discipline? Have you ever spoken to immigrants? They don’t come here with the intent to become citizens. They come for opportunities. Once here they work hard and persevere for years, and then, yes, they find that to achieve the American dream they need documents. They need documents to start businesses, to get loans, to register and insure vehicles, to get health insurance, to go to college, to pay taxes. Those things push them toward documentation. Those of us who admire their work ethic and survival skills empathize with them, as many of us have experienced similar things through the years. When women were oppressed women broke laws that were on the books, and now those laws have changed. Unfortunately there are still people and countries that oppress others. There’s still much educating to be done.

    “Where does it end?” Slippery slope fallacy, as you’ve not given a reason why one would result from the other.

    It’s very common for people who have committed crimes to be given leniency if there are mitigating circumstances. I think the fact that they had no choice in the matter and consider this country their home constitutes some.

    I know, it’s typical. They come here illegally, break the law, then demand things as their “rights.” They all need to be deported.
