If they come here legally with eather a work visa, or becoming a citizen i don't really care so much.Why ? because they went threw the trouble of doing it the proper way thus have the right to work/live here or where ever they want to be.
Plus another thing, Illegal Immigrants don't pay taxes or any thing else for that matter.Which means all there doing is taking and not contributing back to the land they want to live in.If they want to be here so bad come here legally and contribute back not screw up another economy/work because there suck and they don't want to fix it.
....Player Killer....??* "There is nothing to fear but F.E.A.R. it self -(F.E.A.R) " ??*
i think that immigrants have the right to be here anyway but i also think they are taking advantage of that situation and i think that is wrong but they come here to try to survive and i dont find anything wrong wit that but some people do.
I have said it once and I will say it again. I am from Southern California so I hear and deal with this sort of thing all the time and the impact of what illegal immigrants have on society.
I apparently didn’t make my self clear when I said the reason why they are coming here was because the Mexican Gov. is corrupted. Some one said "Well if they tried to make their own Gov. Better then we wouldn’t be having this problem." The problem is, is that those that are busting butt and trying to better their country and their people are being killed off by those in power. They are literally being killed off, as in shot, assassinated, and poisoned kidnapped and never seen again.
Now a few other people said "Well they don’t speak English, how can they sign something that they don’t understand..." If you come out here you will see that just about every sign, every paper document is in English AND Spanish. So they can to understand it and they know what to do, where to go where to sign and blah blah blah.
For people who say that they should be here and that we should let them in and stuff and what ever excuse, then I can tell you that I have seen a nice housing area go to hell in a heart beat because of illegals. As some one said before, they don’t pay taxes, so there is no up keep on the property which then drives the tax up more where the people who work have to pay more on their property until they no longer can and are forced to move out, which then more illegal come in and it becomes a slum because they don’t pay tax, so there is no money for the county to maintain the area and it just falls apart.
And for those who have said that if we lose our illegal work force we will suffer economic problems well guess again. Ever sense the law here that was passed dictating that no business are allowed to higher illegal workers, and those business who have illegal works must let their illegal work force go or they will have to pay a penalty fee of X amount of money depending on how many illegal workers have been higher by said business. So when the majority of the business’s here laid off their illegal work force, people who were struggling to find jobs, those that came here legally, and those who were naturally born citizens almost instantly got jobs. There were no economic crises what so ever. Our economy here in Southern Cal didn’t get worse, it didn’t even stay the same, it got better. Places that use to be a slum are now slowly coming back. New housing developments, regular maintenances that have been neglected for so long because there just wasn’t any money for are now being repaired. It’s a slow process to be sure but now the counties here in Cali have money to build and maintain where as before they didn’t.
I am not going to lie, it sucks that these people who want to come here and better their life have it very tuff, and that would probably be an understatment, but we cant help them and just hand them everything because they are still not bettering them selves, they are in the same pridicoment as they were before, and now they are hurting us just by them being here because we are spending resorces in keeping them alive and handing them everything but are getting nothing back in reaturn. They have to better them selves, its up to them. But not all will, a lot will take the easy way out and expect a free meal and then expect others to clean up the mess for them. But for those who do want to better them selves there is always a way to do so legally. It may very well involve in doing things they dont like. A good example of this is not having a HUGE family of five kids with out a way to support them.
I made no assumption. You replied to an argument made previously in a direct reference:
That would seem to imply you're saying the forms are available in multiple languages and thus remove language from the equation.Now a few other people said "Well they don’t speak English, how can they sign something that they don’t understand..." If you come out here you will see that just about every sign, every paper document is in English AND Spanish. So they can to understand it and they know what to do, where to go where to sign and blah blah blah.
US Citizenship Application Process
It will note that Form N-400 is required to apply. That form ishere
Note that it (and all informational pages linking to it) are entirely in English.
"The USCIS will send you an interview notice in the mail that will tell you the date, time and place of your interview. If you fail to bring the necessary documents, your case may be delayed or denied. During the interview, your ability to read, write and speak English will be tested. You will also have answer a set of civics questions to test your knowledge and understanding of the U.S. History and Government. "
Furthermore, the availability of Spanish-language signage and material in your area doesn't help someone from India, Pakistan, China, Japan, Yugoslavia or Norway a bit...
If you wanted only to share your remarkable experience of living in the Southwest, hooray... but this is the debate and discuss forum.. and frankly, as an argument ~ your experience holds no water.
Oh and while I am here....
Which brings us right back to Scourge's extremely valid point.
