I am glad these individuals were able to use the situtation here in the United States to help themselves, and find a job to support their families back in Mexico. They decided to have a create a family, some of whom were born here in the United States.

They are now asking that because they were hard-working individuals, they be granted citizenship. They broke the law when they crossed our borders, and entered the US illegally. They broke the law when they used false papers (some American's name and Social Security number to get a job). They broke the law when they filled out a driver's licence form, if they didn't just drive without a licence, or insurance. Were their children using fake names and identification papers to go to school, that's another crime the parents committed.

Most states take away the right to vote from American citizens who commit serious crimes. A felony conviction will result in the loss of the right to own or use a firearm. There is more than one price to pay for the commission of a crime in the United States.

But with this issue, many are willing to turn a blind eye to the transgressions of these illegals, who in order to stay here and work, have broken on average a dozen laws, and rush to grant them citizenship.

What is really going on here? What is the real agenda behind those individuals here in the US that are pushing this policy so hard? Americans who commit a crime are punished. Illegals who commit a crime are rewarded. The inmates are really running this asylum.
