  • a lot of the illegals work here so that they can send the money back home to get their family members up here.

  • they sneak over here to work, its not that much money actually. and they come here to work because the american dollar SURPRISINGLY is more than peso's. So they come here and work and send the money back because they can get MORE of something with our american dollar. if oyu go to mexico, they dont want you to pay in pesos, they want american money!

  • i know it can cost them $ 5 to $1500 just to get across the border and they pay guides to help them, they pay drivers to get them here, they pay for social security cards and fake id and birth certifacate so i know there is a cost to get here....where do they get that money in the first place and if they can make that kind of money in mexico then why the need to sneak in?

  • no, they can come from other countries too im from arizona, so when anyone talks about illegals thats what they are usually talking about.. theyre everywhere here.

  • My baby's father is illegal and im a citizen. my son is a citizen as well. My boyfriend didnt have to pay anything to get over here, His uncle brought him and his mother over here.
    they wanna come here for a better life, why do you care?

  • im all for people having a better life, but they should do it LEGALLY.. its ILLEGAL to come here and LIVE when you arent a citizen. my boyfriends mother came here from mexico but she did it the RIGHT way.. people that come here illegally are felons!

  • Wtf they are not felons. My mom came here illegally and she got married to my dad and applied to be a citizen and they didn't tell her " oh why didn't you come here the right way?! your a felon!"
    she is now a citizen and working hard for her money.
    It doesn't matter if they came here illegally, as long as there not killing people or doing anything bad then why the fuck should you ever care.

  • YEAH THEY ARE when you are ILLEGAL.. come on the name ILLEGAL says it all! its a felony to come to another country and live there ILLEGALLY. your mom is a citizen now because she GOT MARRIED.....which makes her a citizen. and they ARE coming here and killing people not ALL but majority YES... so i do care!

  • My boyfriend's mom brought him and his two younger siblings here in 2001. He didn't have a choice at the time and it is VERY expensive (like thousands of dollars) to apply for citizenship.
