Why is our government concealing the truth about illegal immigrants?
One has to be totally dumb or inane to believe only 12 to 15 million illegals are in this country. Illegals started coming in groves in the late 70's. For decades, they were uncontested. Illegal awareness took hold in the last ten years. Under the Clinton Administration, he allowed millions to become citizens without completing the proper paperwork. Each year, we are told that over four million come into the country. We are further told that 3.5 enter between California and Arizona. Do the math! Do you really think 35 years of heavy immigration equals to 12 million illegals? It is a cover up, for societies are often deceived by their governments. We pride ourselves on being an Intelligent nation, but we are just as gullible. The math does not add up! Fifteen million have entered in the last five years. Keep in mind, our own government gives us the yearly statistic. If so, why do they assume that we should buy into the lie? This new lie about illegal immigration being on the down low due to our wavering economy, is also a lie!!! NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT WHAT PART OF TAKING CARE OF 50 MILLION ILLEGALS HAVE PROPELLED US INTO A RECESSION. I might sound far off, but welfare, SSDI, SSI, and the cost of Food Stamps have depleted us. Our govenment does not want to talk about this, for it is not politically correct for McCain and Obama. Also, it will offend the hispanic groups. Think about it, if the USA was not paying trillions of dollars to illegals would we be as bad off as we are? We would still have problems but not insurmountable ones.

we can't deport them all, but lets give it the ol college try and see what happens. 1 less illegal is one less criminal.

1. The government only estimates these numbers.
2. The government just like in every other country does not always tell you the truth because that's not the interest of the politicians.
I would not blame the illegals for this recession and I very much believe it would have happened without illegals also. You know capitalism is not a perfect system either. The Great Depression did happen and there were no illegals at that time. You need to calm down because you are talking like a dictator. The government has made many mistakes also but putting the blame on everybody does not help.

if it particularly is so, all welfare courses must be terminated and perchance we will not have each and every of the cry babies on unemployment the two suitable? i'm effective any american citizen at present is keen to soak up their neighbor's family contributors for a whilst or help somebody in choose of tips. yeah suitable, no longer gonna ensue! no longer until eventually the U. S. human beings as a rustic and society awaken & scent the espresso and make it themselves 4 that reason. individuals r lazy, spoiled and unwilling to grimy their palms in person-friendly commercial labor jobs, that r being shipped to third worldwide worldwide places. supply up believing each and every thing u r advised and that i DARE u to pass refer to somebody who's an immigrant- criminal/unlawful- then come decrease back and submit something effective because of the fact suitable now u r being hateful, ignorant and uneducated(study the data).

Ha Ha, now the Undocumented are responsible for the recession.
Not Bush doubling of the National Debt in 8 years.
Not Bush starting two wars, giving a tax cut to the wealthy,failing to cut spending, or raising taxes, to pay the billions we spend on the wars each month..
Not Bush borrowing $2 billion a day from foreign countries for 3 years now.
Not CEO John Thain, Merill Lynch,pay package of $83.1million in 2008 or CEO Larry Ellison, Oracle Group, $84.6 million pay package for the same year. Just two examples of the hundred if not thousands, fleecing the American Investors on wall street.

Well if our government actually had paid some decent attention to Mexico's economy, immigrants wouldn't be coming over here by the millions. If we put a slight fraction of the money going into the war into re-building Mexico's economy, they wouldn't have to cross the border to support their families. Iraq is half-way around the world, and we put full energy into that project, yet we don't pay attention to our neighboring countries? Of course people are going to want to cross over! Like you said, this has been going on for YEARS, and that wasn't an obvious enough hint for them that we need to do something about it? And I'm not talking about new restricting immigration laws. Those haven't changed anything, and a lot of Mexican's have died trying to cross. Maybe if we had given them financial assistance in the first place, our economy wouldn't be plummeting as far as it is right now...

How come we don't help Mexico's economy. That's why they are all coming over here. INSTEAD, we are over in the Middle East giving BILLIONS of dollars to terrorists that Ruined this country.
Does anyone remember 9/11???

Yes, of course you are right. When the heated debate began, the immoral business people who wanted them here proudly say: "We inVITED them here!" How DARE they?!!! They didn't consult the rest of us, but then they had already decided not to play the democratic game and pay people living wages....they whined....'oh, but we'll go broke.....it's for the good of the country!" Liars, liars, pants on fire. Our infrastructure is crumbling and they are sending blue-collar, middle-class jobs out of the country and giving what few dirt jobs to the illegals while they deny OUR OWN PEOPLE THE BENEFITS AND HELP THAT THEY NEED IN ILLNESS, DISCRIMINATION, and THEIR ECONOMIC BACKSTABBING THEY DID TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. And the middle-class is about the only people left paying taxes. They seem to be hell-bent to put these senators out of jobs too. Their lobbyists give them enough bribes to keep them blind to what's going on while they set it up to stab them AND us in the back. Just wait, they will come after the rest it's just a matter of time. They want to destroy all but the very outline of the gov. They don't plan on saving ANYTHING about the gov. that doesn't benefit them.
You see I know because workforce told me years ago when I was job hunting that the buisness people planned on getting rid of our workers, in fact they hoped to replace them with machines and robots. Too expensive they found out. Cheaper to exploit illegal people and blame it on GOD, and boy is he MAD! They will get what they got coming to them, and I couldn't be more happy about it. Cigar?

You pro illegals must really buy what mainstream is selling.... This guy had a few valid points and in return he gets racist,ignorant , and canned responses... The truth is ,in large part the illegals are resposnible for the recession...
In a normal economic climate, cost of living increases have been comparable to inflation...However, with 20 million plus illegals here that are undercutting wages,cost of living has not increased on track with inflation.. Bush is just as much to blame.. Between exporting of jobs and an ever increasing US debt, the inflation rate has grown much faster than projected..Medic likes to brag that they infuse the economy with money that they spend as consumers... Well that is just simply a supply and demand equation that once again hits on inflation. With 20 million plus illegals utilizing services the cost for said services and goods go up( this is high school economics here)...This is a direct rebuttal to the claim that illegals leaving would cause the US to go into recession. Why? Well if you removed these consumers, your supply would increase, demand would decrease and prices would fall. Excess food could then be exported instead of imported..OKAY up there well he was on earlier asking how to hire an illegal and now he is defending one. Well OKAY.. I hope that money you save employing these criminals will be worth your sense of patriotism.. Anyway- you are right to feel slighted by the government.....

Not Ilegals! not criminals, they are human beings for god's sake! what is going on with america, and all this hatred towards others. These people are undocumented, and not all of them com from mexico! They come from every part of the world, stop discriminating. They are willing to pay fines and do proper paperwork in order to fix their situation, stop blaming them. IN GOD WE TRUST?
