not only latinos are illegal immigrants, where is the undercover story of the Burmese? the people in the middle eastern? Why focus so much on the latino population when there are not the only illegal immigrants in the united states?

If you can find our illegal immigrants, why can't our officials? You are aiding in breaking the law, and your news should be protected!

I'm Married to a FORMER illegal immigrant. We just were in Ciudad Juarez in April/May and got my husband's permenant recendency. For those fortunate enough to have a relative to sponsor them getting papers can be done.

A lot of the illegal immigrants work very hard to stay here and not cause trouble ; i know a lot of them and they love to work hard to reach the American dream - to give their kids a better life.

It is not true that illegals can get food stamps or any type of help from the government. it they do not have a issued social security numbers. so stop lying about that people!!

My best friend is an illegal student and she works very hard to keep her grades up and she will not be allowed to go to a good college because she is not legal. I really think this is not fair. She has done nothin wrong...

Where is all the money that the undocumented people pay out of their checks going? Where is all the tax money that with their low paying jobs and they still manage to make the effort to pay at? without getting money back for taxes?

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US KNOW WHAT GOES ON IN THEIR LIVES!! I REALLY HAD NO CLUE THAT THEY WORKED SO HARD TO FOLLOW THEIR DREAM!! =]

i think that immigrants came here for a better life for their families and they just wanna work to accomplish their dreams like we all have.We do any kind of job where they dont pay much and citizens are not willing to work in places where we work...

The best thing Our government should do is. Allow the inmigrants to live here legally, they'd be able to drive with a valid driver's license, buy car insurance, homes, furniture, Vehicles, The money will be spent here and not sent to their countries
