I watch the actions of illegals screaming they want our immigration laws ignored so they can become legal.
In the first place, this shows me they don't respect our laws as long as they get whatever they want, while waving a foreign flag in our faces at the same time. This should disgust all Americans and legal immigrants who now live in the U.S. Waving their own flag is what those who occupy another country do to show they have taken over.
I don't have anything against legal immigration. After all, this is how our country was built. But no country in the world can absorb a tsunami of uncontrolled immigrants without negative effects. There has to be some kind of control.
We need to control our borders, and for those who are already here illegally, why don't you do the following: first, don't break our laws. If you are illegal, break our laws and get arrested, tough luck. Back to your own country you go. Second, learning English! It's our language. No American should have it a requirement to speak a foreign language to get a job in America. No public documents in a foreign language either. English is the language spoken in America. Learn it! Third, you will get no public assistance until you become a legal citizen of this country which you have adopted. No free medical care, public assistance, food stamps...nothing!
