Mom Confessions Mom Confessions
Ok so I posted earlier about illegals and the new law in Illinois that was passed to give them a right to have a license. People did not understand what I was trying to say, so I'm trying again :). With that said, I had earlier read a post about the same topic, and it surprised me to see how many woman are so ignorant and racist. Woman complaining about how all of the illegals should be deported, and how the illegals should not be able to have a license. My issue is, illegals really aren't an issue here. They come to have a better life, because life here is painted so beautiful for them, people come with high expectations because they think there is work, money and everything their own country doesn't offer. Illegals work the jobs that nobody wants, for the very min. Wage, they work 2 or more jobs to help feed the families they much of the time leave behind. A lot of times kids are brought at a young age and have no choice. So why not give certain people the chance to make it easier for them to live? I do agree some people should be deported, some people truly have no right to be here, but not only illegals are bad. How often do you hear of an illegal going a killing spree at movie theaters, schools, malls, or anything like that? Yes we hear of the Mexican cartels and how bad it's getting, but is that really fair to assume all illegals are like the cartels? It would be like saying ALL white people are crazy killers. Illegals should not be looked at as a burden, or anything less. They work at whatever they can find, no matter how dirty, gross or hard, so I say give them a chance to get a license, so they can keep their pay checks instead of always having to give it to the gov. There are far worst things happening with our country than Illinois allowing illegals to obtain a license.

All of them should be deported. End of story.



Come here the right way or not at all. And don't give me some BS excuse of how its so expensive blah blah blah. If they can pay a coyote to bring them across and drop them in the middle of nowhere to survive or die, they can afford to start the citizenship process. And they certainly shouldn't be rewarded with privileges or rights citizens here have, such as driver licenses.

Quick question, why is it us "americans" seem to think were better then others? All of us came from other countries if you really stop and think about it. Just sad how people can still be so closed minded. But im sure if some of these people who live so comfortably had to live a hard life where surviving was actually hard, they'd want to make a better life for themself and there families. But when its other people who are trying to do that its frowned upon. But ignorance and racism has been around forever and probably always will be ...

Its not just Americans. Research other countries immigration laws. The laws here in the US are some of the most lenient.

who says they dont pay taxes ? people should do there research before talking about things they dont know. and lol im not illegal but i dont have insurance so you'd be pretty pissed off at me too !! LMAOOOO!

Quoting Anonymous:

If they are illegal, how are they legally obligated to have a state license and pay car insurance? If they are'nt applying for legal citizenship and paying taxes, SS, and etc....how do they get this benefit of a drivers lisence? I'm genuinely concerned and curious? I don't want them driving anywhere near me!!! Rame their crappy ass car into mine so my insurance has to fix their car and hospital bills because they don't have insurance!!! No way. That all sucks!!! Sorry, not trying to offend anyone, just that really chaps my ass.

Some of my ancestors came here over the bearing land bridge thousands of years ago, others came here in the late 1600's before any immigration laws, and the rest of them came here with visa's in hand and entered through Ellis Island, i even have documentation of it.

My husbands mother came here from Nazi Germany, with a Swiss Visa, through Canada into the U.S.

Well considering I'm part native, my ancestors have been here for over a century. The ones who immigrated here did so legally, nearly a century ago. It doesn't matter why.
