Look. This is just bitching for the sake of bitching. You want a stimulus for the people? OK. Here's a stimulus. But to turn around and bitch about the stimulus by saying, "Wait, wait, wait... some illegals that pay taxes are going to get this stimulus too!!!"

Everyone acknowledges that illegal immigration is a problem for the US. But, I'm sorry, but I feel our current economic situation is a much larger and more pressing problem.


I agree, which is why I don't understand why we're using a lot of this money in ways that won't get the economy back up on its feet. When it is on its feet, THEN worry about your pork projects. Now, however, is not the time.

dont apologize. who cares if they're paying taxes. theyre ILLEGAL...not supposed to be here. they shouldnt be in the position to where they have the opportunity to pay taxes in the first place. whats the purpose of having laws if they mean nothing?


heh that's kinda funny. People shouldn't have access to my bank account, it's illegal, but if they want to deposit money to it I think I'll look the other way.

Guess what, at least as many Republicans hire illegals as Dems. In fact, probably more. Illegals are a fact of life for everyone, and your whining will not change it.

The prudent solution is to make a path for citizenship, and make them pay taxes - both are goals generally supported by Democrats.

Right. Because it's a Democrat-sponsored bill. Say no more. Don't you dare cross that aisle

both parties are to blame, yes. however, i question how you came up with the conclusion that republicans are more to blame. the government as a whole is to blame for allowing this to happen in the first place.

No, private companies hiring illegals are "to blame". The laws are pretty clear. You can say that the government does not do enough to enforce the law, but the people who hire illegals are breaking the law.

It's academic now. They are a vital part of our society, and we are to a certain extent dependent on each other.

The reason I say "probably more" Republicans are hiring them is that more business owners seem to identify themselves as Republicans. It's an obervation, not a statement of fact.

But it is good to know that you favor bigger government when it comes to things important to you.

Back it up .... link?

Also, what, exactly, would that "path for citizenship" look like?

uh ok? its absurd because no one deserves a free handout. period. its absurd because the bill rewards individuals who do not pay taxes, at the expense of taxpayers. how is that fair? ive been against every stimulous/bailout that has come into play thus far.

Where are you getting this from? Again, the illegals that you're talking about DO in fact pay taxes, they're just illegal immigrants. Keep your arguments straight
