Just because its hard for them to become legal is not an excuse. I was in a car accident with an illegal (it was in NO WAY my fault) now a year later I'm still dealing with neck,spine,hip problems (and then some) constant pain and can't live MY life. I'm 20 years old can't do what I've been in school since I was 17 to do. Can't get a job cuz of my injuries. And this guy who wasn't injured at all? Nothing. He doesn't have to pay for shit doesn't have any part of his life completly screwed like mine. Because he was illegal. So obviously that means he had no insurance. My medical alone has been close to a million dollars, no lie. Don't be ignorant. They shouldn't be here illegally. Period.

The injuries they mentioned could severely interfere with work. Sitting at a desk? Nope, could further injure their spine/neck unless you wear a highly uncomfortable brace for 8 hrs and sit straight as a pin. Anything to do with walking? A slight misstep could possibly screw up their hips.
And the constant pain? You either get meds, which would be pricey if you didn't have them covered prior, or deal with the pain. Even if they WERE covered by insurance, you still have to pay. My sister's medical-examination birth control pills that were covered still cost us $15, and that is some basic medication.

Ugh, I hate when people say "illegals" like illegal immigrants are less than people. Believe it or not, they are people, and want the same things as you (opportunites, healthy children, political freedom, etc.). They can't help it that they weren't as fortunate as you to be born in a country that provides all of that. Obviously, it would be better if all immigration happened legally, but the current system in place makes it nearly impossible to immigrate here legally without immediate family members as citizens. But I really don't see the huge deal about illegal imigration, when there are so much bigger issues at hand.

America doesn't have an "official" language but it is the most commonly spoken. Why should the majority of people living in the states have to learn a language for the minority instead of the minority learning the language of the place they're in so they can communicate with the majority?

If that is the case, then how are there so many legal immigrants here that can not speak English? I'm not talking only about Hispanics but Indians, Asians, Germans as well. True, you may have to take an English language test but surely it's just the basics like "hello" and "toilet". And I'm sure you have heard the term "America; the land of opportunity" Immigrants come to America for a better life than the one they had in their previous country. My parents came here for the exact same reason. Sure they were legal, but if they had been denied right to come then I am sure they would have hopped in a log and sailed over here without permission just to give my sisters and me a better life. Wouldn't your parents have done the same?

American citizen children don't have to pay anything either. It's the adults who pay for everything.

Obtaining citizenship is hard. Difficult. But not impossible. In fact, I believe it was harder in the 1800s and early 1900s to become a citizen. They had to learn the language then. The government was a no-catering government.
My ancestors, orphans soon after being let into the country and not even teens, spent countless hours learning the language so they could have a chance at becoming a citizen. Racial slurs, racist examiners, etc. They HAD to learn English, but with harder testing.
Now, it is still hard, but they don't have to learn the language, or pass medical exams, or have things thrown at them. The history tests are hard, but they do receive help [as far as I've heard from legal immigrants]. They need to stop being pansies. Everyone works hard. People strive to get good grades and activities so they can MAYBE afford college, since they actually follow the laws and came here legally, rather than hopping on a boat/plane, going to a college, and instantly getting cash.

@eldorito Most Americans couldn't pass that test.

If more money was spent on schooling rather than welfare, unemployment, and illegals, Americans COULD pass it. We have an awful school system.

I'm gonna leave the immigration issue alone, but on education:

The idea of public education is that education is a social right; that the government has a responsibility to provide it. To everyone. Those who earn enough to pay taxes pay into the systemconsiderably less, by the way, than they would pay if school weren't publicly fundedto make that possible. You don't just pay taxes so your kid can go to school, that's not how it works. You're making it possible for every child to get an education, including those who belong to families too poor to pay taxes.

So, just because someone doesn't pay taxes isn't a reason to deny them an education.

And if you want to say that that's borderline socialism (those who have contributing to provide for those who have not), guess what: IT IS. You also pay for everyone to have roads and bridges and a police force and any number of other public services. That's how civilized society works. Get over it.

This won't matter, be nice to the illegal immigrants from Mexico, soon we will be migrating over there with the way things are going with Obama presently

That's what I'm afraid of. Obama seems to want total control. His choice for Supreme Court, the Puerto Rican, was obviously a democrat and possibly a liberal. His choices seem to be making him more powerful, and he wants to make all illegals citizens without tests because it means he gets over 4 million more votes.
So I am currently learning Spanish in school, because I'll have to:
1) Move to Mexico.
or
2) The prominent language will be Spanish.

What, 10,000 years of white dominance isn't enough for you? Quit being so melodramatic. If you think Spanish will become the "official language of the US" (even though such a thing doesn't exist), you are a moron.

And what, Obama would put a republican on the bench? Yeah, the same way Bush's nominees were all democrats. Oh wait, no, presidents choose nominees who they think will make good decisions, and everyone's idea of a "good decision" is one that agrees with their viewpoint. It's the president's right to choose a nominee from their party.
