CBS Frets Illegal Aliens 'No Longer Feel Welcome' -- and the Problem Is?

Most support Arizona’s impending immigration enforcement law and a solid 78 percent think the federal government should do more to keep illegal immigrants from getting into the U.S. Katie Couric noted in citing the new poll numbers, “hundreds of thousands of them now live in Arizona.” How did CBS take these hardly surprising findings? Couric fretted “many” of those illegals “no longer feel welcome.” Instead of seeing that as good news which will lessen the problem, CBS empathized with the plight of a reproductively profligate law-breaker.

  • “On a dusty block in Phoenix, 15 years of the Quintana family's possessions are for sale,” reporter Kelly Cobiella despaired over video of teddy bears before translating for the mother, Manuela, who managed to churn out ten kids who are now U.S. citizens, but hasn’t bothered to learn English.
    How appropriately said.. should we change the law that gives citizenship to anyone born here?

  • Omg, they SHOULDN'T feel welcome, they're here illegally, which means they are not supposed to be here and are not wanted here. That concept isn't rocket science!

  • Tucson doesn't support the law. The City Council is voting today to sue the State.

  • I don't know how we could make them feel much more welcome. Most of the products in stores now have Spanish on them right under the English words. Job after job can only be gotten if the applicant can speak Spanish, which sounds like discrimination. That is where a lawsuit needs to be, not suing Arizona. That is so ridiculous.

  • Illegal Aliens should never feel "Welcome" here. They aren't wanted here. I welcome immigrants only if they go through the proper procedures to gain entry. I am sick of bending over for the illegal ones. Though I do wish I knew how they manage to play the system. They get free schools, free healthcare, and other perks that I as a legal citizen cannot. Talk about screwed up. I hope they get found and shipped out. The problem is, how do we keep them from coming back?

    The problem is that the supporters don't want available jobs because it's easier to collect PA than clean a dirty toilet. Let the illegals do that.

    Good luck suing the state, since it's a Federal law. LOL!

  • If the illegals want to feel welcome here, then they need to learn to speak English and pay taxes like the rest of us. You can't live like a parasite and expect to feel welcome.
