    I'm still waiting for our resident right wingers instead of repeatedly citing biased sources about the "cost" of immigrants to show a comparative stat for what they contribute to the economy.

    Repeatedly shrieking some bloated figure over and over about their "cost" without examining what they contribute is as worthless as pulling out a number of what gets spent on native borns for every service they use-- roads, schools, hospitals, food stamps, medicare, medicaid, etc., without talking about what they contribute.

    Sorry, but your left wing think tank organization has zero credibilty.

    Go ahead and send all 12 or 20 million illegals packing. Let's free up some jobs for Americans.

    What part of "they broke the law getting here" do you fail to comprehend?

    If a burglar broke into your house, would you feed and clothe him and take care of his family as well? I don't think so.

    The historical revisionism going on here is amazing. I'm sure a minority of all white people presently residing in the United States and born here have relatives who all came here with permission and proper paperwork.

    Here in the Land of Lincoln, a proposal to allow those doing business at the DMV to register to vote, AKA the "Motor Voter" plan - to make voting easier. Needless to say, Motor Voter lives, and the Republicons in Illinois can go eat some shit. (They do anyway).

    Bottom line: Republicons don't want anyone to vote if they have the audacity to vote Democratic. I'm confused. When we register to vote, we need to verify our citizenship. I don't understand the problem. Another strawman argument fabricated by the Republicons?

    Re: Ann Coulter Rips Marco Rubio Over Inmigration Reform.

    Robert Rector’s paper (Heritage Foundation) was published in 2006 and his analysis is limited to data from a single year (2003) of the Current Population Survey of the US Census Bureau. He shares a variety of percentages that associate poverty according to demographic classification, but fails to demonstrate a valid connection between poverty and what he considers to be its underlying causes.

    Though Mr. Rector presents himself as an expert on matters of poverty and welfare, it is reasonably obvious that he distorts and spins data to promote political objectives. After it came to light that his work was the source for Mitt Romney’s ads attacking welfare by claiming that Obama “gutted” the requirement in the 1996 welfare reform law that recipients look for work in exchange for government support, David Brock reported that Rector is “a man with a long history of minimizing the struggles of the poor and villainizing the very idea of government assistance for those who need it.” Last September the Bridge Project (associated with super-PAC American Bridge 21st Century) published a report detailing some of the controversy surrounding Mr. Rector’s work:

    The final word from me is..as an American, and I am assuming a law abiding citizen, how can anyone defend those that blatantly disregard our laws for whatever reason. It is sad that these people are leaving their native countries rife with corruption and without hope or a future. It really is. It isn't my problem though. It isn't any American's problem.

    I don't support any of the major parties, so your first point is irrelevant.

    As for what illegal immigrants go through—who cares? They're still breaking our laws and should be sent home.

    Almost assuredly your ancestors came under the exact same circumstances at some point and some Anglo who could trace his family directly to the Mayflower was saying the same thing about your family.

    Obviously, nearly everyone of European descent in America today is a criminal right? The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    Re: Ann Coulter Rips Marco Rubio Over Inmigration Reform.

    Grown ups who consciously cross the border illegally are criminals, in a way that MANY immigrants weren't and aren't. So to compare those with EVERYONE's ancestry is unfair.

    That said, children are innocent in this, and having grown up in the States, they should be given citizenship. It's no more their fault they were raised here than it is an unborn baby's for having been conceived in the US. If one gets an automatic citizenship, so should the other.

    In 2003, the Supreme Court struck down the sodomy laws of Texas in the case Lawrence v. Texas. At that time, there were more than a dozen states that had laws banning sodomy. You can't defend people, gay and straight, who violated those laws? Perhaps you violated those laws. What state were you living in before 2003?

    Well then, let a big boy do it.

    Next to Benvolio...who could be your twin given the stunning similarity of positions you both hold, you and the others frothing at them mouth over all of this are as xenophobic as they come, based on the words you all write or the rabid diatribes we hear being delivered on television.

    The joke is on you though.

    The GOP has realized that they will never, ever win if they don't court the Hispanic demographic and counting on hyper-religious, crotchety old ex-Cubans isn't going to do it any more.

    I don't necessarily disagree with you. The sticky wicket is how do you give citizenship to children without a package of benefits for the criminal parents. If that problem could be solved then so be it. My own personal take is that we should do like many countries do. If the child is the product of two foreign born parents, then yes the child is a citizen but doesn't have full rights and privileges until the age of 18. That means no freebies for the parents or cousins or grandmas or uncles.

    I know there is going to be a firestorm for me to prove that the freebies are the reason they come. I can google it all day long and find studies with one bent that says yes. You can google it all day long and find studies with yet another bent that say no. Objectivity is dead in this country. As far as proof of anything it is a shell game.

    Logic would dictate that there would have to be some driving reason to leave your native country besides that of possible employment in a crappy job. That is even taking into consideration that many of these people come from places where their homes are tin shacks with dirt floors and they shit in a hole in the middle of the street.

    You are attempting to to equate the private behavior of presumably consenting adults with the very public, dangerous, and illegal crossing of our borders. The situations are not analagous.

    Despite the hysterical bleating to the contrary by some of the louder fools in this forum, illegals do bring a cost to the taxpayers.
    If a very pregnant Mexican peasant makes it across the border and gives birth to her lottery baby, who pays for it?
    If she goes to a hospital, the taxpayers do.
    When either that child or one born elsewhere that she brought along gets sick, she uses the ER of the nearest hospital as an outpatient clinic. Again, the taxpayers pay.
    Then there's a dozen years of schooling, paid for by local property owners. Ad valorem taxes provide most of the money for schools.
    I wonder how many illegals own property and pay real estate taxes?

    I agree with your first paragraph. But you are as wrong about this as only an American can be. Believe me, US "freebies" are pathetic compared to other countries. The basic LIVING STANDARD is what makes it so desirable a location for illegal immigrants. Because the sad truth is that many come from places where whatever living they can do legally pales in comparison to washing dishes in Chinatown in Chicago for example. Where crime is so ridiculously high as to make living in a US ghetto a vast improvement.

    People don't come here for your - frankly insultingly small - social support network. They come because life in this country is better even for its poorest than in many countries across the globe.

    Mexican "peasant"? What if she's an educated woman from the capital? Would that make a difference for your douchbag elitism?

    And what about all the CONTRIBUTION to the economy? What about all the work they do? That somehow gets swept under the rug...

    Their so-called 'contribution' to the economy is the demonstrable fact that they take jobs away from Americans. And don't hand me that tired 'jobs Americans won't do' nonsense. If the illegals didn't take them, someone would step forward, especially if they were hungry. There are still places, mostly rural, in this country where the work ethic is still strong.

    Illegals contribute nothing but problems.

    I've heard the argument before about how fabulous benefits are elsewhere. There are two points I'd like to make concerning that. The first point is immigration laws in those countries are draconian compared to ours and are actually enforced. This is why these countries have an immigration population under 15% of the overall population in the countries with the largest immigration population. Which, too, I have to restate the populations of these countries are much smaller than that of the U.S. The second being the U.S. underwrites a large portion of the E.U.'s debt. So they too are spending the American taxpayer's money for their fabulous programs.

    I think what GiancarloC and I spent a page trying to point out to you and HenryReardon was that while it may be easier to get into the U.S. than into Canada or Sweden or countries with much more substantial social support systems in place, the U.S. economy is also far more dependant on the labor provided by immigrants as well. Any attempt to attack immigration by throwing around a figure about how much they 'cost' in terms of social services will be useless when it doesn't also examine their contribution to the economy and the level to which the jobs they perform realistically are not jobs native born Americans will consent to fill (not without tripling the wage at least) nor jobs native born Americans are realistically competing for. I'm sorry but I simply don't know anyone, ever, who was mad over losing an under the table 70 hour a week job in the kitchen of a restaurant with no overtime or benefits.

    Like I said in a previous post, doing what has been done so far in this thread, just throwing out the 'cost' of immigrants in a vaccuum, could be done just as much about native born Americans where, if you similarly do not examine their contribution to the economy, I'm sure the cost THEY incur in the form of social services absolutely dwarfs hispanic immigrant costs. Yet no one is here screaming that we should throw out every native born American because of the 'cost' they incur to society.

    It is every hard to have a conversion with an ideologue. Ideologues operate solely on belief. A good analogy would be those on the ghost hunter programs. They invite "debate" or "discovery". When the results are a definitive no, they still say that they "believe" the place is haunted.

    It is a belief system and not one based on facts or law or anything other than a emotional belief in some abstract social paradigm.

    You fall back on this refrain everytime we actually respond to you with a very reasonable counterpoint.

    You aren't being screamed down by ideologues. I presented a very real, very logical problem with your position on why immigration is bad. And you fall back, yet again, and you do this sometimes 3 or 4 times within a single thread, to bemoaning how it's impossible to talk to us left wing think tank ideologues.

    It is not the fault of anyone else that you can't support your positions. If you can't then the problem is with your positions and how you come to them.

    The slur for Italians is wops... it came from "w/o papers." Many Europeans (not just Italians) literally just showed up on a boat. This grandstanding about legal from people who very likely come from these same forebears is a little dishonest.

    Ok I will say this again. The facts, statistics, figures provided are from sources with an agenda. When someone has an agenda driving the compiling of the data, then said compilation is free of objectivity. It is tantamount to asking the individual committing a crime if he is a bad person.

    I am not calling anyone names. I am just saying from the information on this forum and the way things are posted many on here could be determined to be ideologues.

    The reason we have such issue with this topic is there are those that come from a completely different concept. If you excuse criminal behavior without going through the proper channels then amnesty and the mass granting of citizenship if perfectly acceptable. There is the perceived political gain as well.

    You want studies, figures and charts. I am still searching for unbiased information. I as to date haven't found any. When you follow the money on the groups publishing data you then know the agenda. Agenda equals subjectivity.

    I am using simple critical thinking as to my stance. When you have millions of people which are low or no skill workers; all are significantly below the U.S. poverty rate thus having no disposable income; most are uneducated; many are in poor health; it is naive to believe there isn't a substantial outflow of taxpayer monies in the care and maintenance of these people.

    Pursuant to a statement made earlier, it doesn't make any difference how much money is supposedly poured into the U.S. economy by these people. They broke the law. Allowing a special circumstance for them sets a precedent.

    No one is saying to punish children. Most Americans would take exception to reconfiguring law to accommodate these people setting a precedent which will have a disastrous effect in the future.

    Very true. If we adopted the same rules for Mexicans coming in illegally as Mexico has, they'd scream we were being barbaric.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Durango, still searching for objective sources is fair enough. I don't think anyone would attack you for that.

    In the meanwhile though, can we agree that talking about the 'cost' to society of a given subset of people in terms of social service dollars they use, is not informative at all if it's not examined within the context of what they put into the economy? When it's applied only in the case of hispanic immigrants then the question is logically begged, why is no one screaming about the amount of social service dollars used by Asians in America, or whites in America for that matter?

    According to Randy Capps, a senior research fellow at the Urban Institute, “Undocumented immigrants pay the same real estate taxes-whether they own homes or taxes are passed through to rents-and the same sales and other consumption taxes as everyone else. The majority of state and local costs of schooling and other services are funded by these taxes.” The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a nonpartisan think tank, has corroborated this point by declaring that, “Property taxes are hard to avoid, and unauthorized immigrants are assumed to pay the same property taxes as others with the same income level.” [Link]

    The only statement that I would contest is the opinion poll. I would say it's pretty split that Americans favor kicking ILLEGAL immigrants out of the country.

    I will say, nearly every illegal I know rooms with a legal US citizen which is what makes the situation tricky.

    Re: Ann Coulter Rips Marco Rubio Over Inmigration Reform.

    I stated my position on the issue. The OP was about Marco Rubio and his buying into this debacle of immigration "reform".

    Obviously I am not trying to change any minds here. I'm sure most everyone is strident in their beliefs.

    We do need immigration reform. That is certain. It doesn't need to be directed solely at one group of people.

    There are a lot of people on this forum that "will argue with a fencepost" as my grandmother used to say. It does become tiresome, though.

    As are your snide remarks that you use to cover for lack of arguments. And buzzer is right - you do it literally every time when you have nothing to further your stance.

    Your opinion has little value to anyone here, because you fail at supporting it. If we're just going to be snotty at each other and tell each other how much we don't care for each other's opinion, we might as well not post at all. You are engaging in an argument, so it falls to you to support your opinions. When you fail to do it and try to mask it behind a "you're all idiots anyway" attitude, it makes you appear stupid and helpless. I am fairly confident that is NOT the desired effect, so maybe you should consider some different strategy for posting here.

    Do we? Really? There are any number of laws already on the books, many of which have been there for a very long time.
    Why don't we do something radical, like rigorously enforcing the laws we already have. If that doesn't work, then, and only then, should we try another approach.

    I will reiterate what I said before: my problem was the basis upon which you were justifying your opinion. If you stated only the raw figure of "social service dollars used" with no examination of economic contribution of *any* group in the U.S. besides hispanics, you could equally make just as valid a case that they're a drain and should be kicked out.

    That was my problem with your opinion.

    The economic contribution, if any, is irrelevant to the subject at hand. The fact remains that they are a drain on local resouces everywhere. More to the point, the fact that they are here illegally trumps any other consideration.

    Even if that were true, and it arguably is not, (BTW, you've provided absolutely no reliable proof to the contrary)the fact remains that the illegals have broken our laws in coming here. Nothing else matters. Nothing. Send them back where they came from,and if they really want to come to this country, let them attempt to do so through channels. No other argument matters. Not one.
