I had the misfortune to be an illegal immigrant in the past.
Some people don't like people coming to their country to claim welfare, some people don't like people coming to do badly paid jobs.
I suppose to some minds if you're unlucky enough to be born somewhere with limited economic opportunities you deserve everything you get?
Fair play to the protesters.

Whatever happened to "bring us your huddled masses"? Why are there so many illegal immigrants? Is the processing of applications too slow? Are the rules unnecessarily complex and burdensome?

Sorry if these questions should get another thread....

It takes years to get into the States, and lots of savings. It doesn't help that we have our hand in Latin American soil all the time, backing dictators and military juntas if a country decides to stop paying for our corporations.

I heard a little about what the conditions were for these illegals in those plants. 13 year olds working 17 hour shifts? And people call pro immigration law supporters non compassionate? Supporting illegal immigration is akin to being a slaver. Had these people been legal they would have had all the rights of a regular worker with full excess to labor laws.

This "problem" is as old as the nation itself. It used to be the Irish, now it's the Mexicans.

Somehow, we not only survived, but thrived.

But is was much harder for the Irish to come here illegally. They had the Atlantic to cross. The Mexicans have a large frontier border to deal with, even with the desert problems or the Rio Grande.

Most Irish had to come legally. They did not have much of a choice. The hispanics on the other hand have "overcontinental overload". This is also not about bigotry against immigration. It is about illegal immigration. Mexico is exporting its scumbags that commit crime along with the impoverished who are otherwise peaceful. Immigration needs to be changed to allow the otherwise peaceful people to come, but kick the ***** out and keep out the criminal element as much as possible.

We agree, so far.

I also think we need to look at the effect our trade policies have in fostering this problem.
