I have no problem with foreigners coming here..but learn my f'n language!
Now..this is from my uneducated POV. I just don't have the effort to research everything about it when I won't ever have to make decisions with it.

In my case I have nothing - absolutely nothing - against those that are here legally. But I have no tolerance whatsoever for illegals. And people can call them "undocumented workers" or any other name they want, but they are exactly what they are - illegal aliens.
And quite frankly, it turns my stomach that BOTH parties, Republican and Democratic, are caving in to immigration reform just to buy votes - it is disgusting. At least the Republicans want our borders protected first, but the Democrats don't even want that. Illegal aliens are invaders and criminals and should be treated as such.
Personally, I think almost ALL immigration should be stopped except for marriages and job transfers to the US, and professions in which we have a critical shortage, until we get back on our feet economically. Let's get real here...how stupid is it to allow immigration when we are sitting here with 12.3 million people unemployed? Pretty dang stupid...sort of like having a family of 4 and you only have 3 hamburgers and 2 potatoes to cook, but you invite 6 other people to dinner...duh.
If we don't crash and burn first, someday we need to start putting the interests of the country above some distorted and unrealistic view of what is politically correct....there have been and will be times when the nation needs immigrants, and there have been and will be times when we don't. Immigration to the US is not some entitlement that every person on Earth is born with...
