    Fine looking group of people.
    They only run over and kill people Americans won’t
    How long are you going to stand for this?
    Our politicians are obviously not going to fix it.
    “They are only trying to make a better life for themeselves”
    Yup but the problem is they are destroying everybody elses in the process!
    What do Illegal Immigrants and bank robbers have in common?
    They are both trying to better their lifestyle and they are both comitting a crime!
    Oh yeah, I almost forgot,
    They are doing it at your expense.

      Keep an open mind, these people may not be immigrants. Just because there hispanic does not mean they’re illegal.
