We need harsher laws for these people who drive drunk, get their licenses revoked and then drive drunk over and over without a license. These are the people who kill innocent victims

If we did that then the civil civic organization will cry how unfair it is that we deport illegals because they like to drink. You must realize that illegals have more rights then us the tax payer.... it is so horrible im thinking about becoming illegal.. no taxes no insurances....free everything... yes... I want to become illegal.

And we wonder why our government is suffering financially . We have millions of illegals who work but don't pay any taxes, are the cause of our financial woes. They use our roads, schools , hospitals and programs set up for OUR needy. The government needs to enforce the laws regarding the employment of illegals, fine the employers who hire them, and tax the money they are wiring out of our country unless they can prove that employment taxes were paid. These policies once enforced could bring millions, if not billions of dollars back to the government, which could solve a lot of our financial problems. It would also bring jobs back to Americans who are in need of employment. We also need to completely cut off any welfare, and health assistance to anyone who is not in this country thru the legal channels. The longer we wait, the worse things will get. Eventually tax paying Americans will become the minority, and the structure of our government will fail. If you don't believe me , view the documentary " They come to America" by Dennis Lynch. One of our boarder patrol guards states that if we don't act fast, the USA will become a third world country in as little as 10 years.

Really???? FACT. Illegals have LESS rights. Most do PAY TAXES and use whatever SS# they can and cannot claim a refund if one were due. They PAY rent to LANDLORDS who can now charge higher rents. THE RENT $$$$$ pays the mortgage and peoperty TAXES. Which PAYS FOR STATE schools, police ECT. The Hatred is deplorable. Look to the upperclass RICH who don't want to pay your WHITE ASS FAIR WAGE. These poeple are <EXPLOITED> Your the one who pays. GO on with your self, your thinking exactly what the CORPERATE GREED MONGERS wants you to think. HATE to least of these while their toilets are scrubbed clean for nothing.
