Illegal immigration

The United States is now $18 trillion in debt. How are we supposed to accommodate even more who are not able to contribute anything but will be dependents of our social programs in some cases for their entire lives?

I think if I had immigrated here legally, I’d be looking for an attorney to file a class-action suit against this government.

Why should those who comply with our laws do so when we allow thousands to just walk in?

And why are these illegals being given attorneys? Immigration is a civil matter and no American defendant in a civil case is given a free attorney.

And if all these illegals just want a piece of the American Dream as claimed by their supporters, I think you might want to ask why every phone call requires you to “press one for English”.
