Story Showcases Self-Entitled Illegal Aliens

“If immigration officials catch him some day and he is deported, Angel Estrada, 48, already knows whom he will call, and at what hotel in Mexico he will meet his family before attempting to rebuild his life in his hometown of Cuernavaca. Estrada’s daughter, Karla, 24, who like her father is in the country illegally, has no plans to leave so easily — or quietly,” the LA Times writes.

  1. We’re Full

    That sums up my demography report on the environment…is supporting the environment and endangered species Racist? To the open border heretics it is.

    They went out to the midwestern states and helped settle those areas when they were little more than wilderness.
    But you very conveniently went right past my point. I said that immigrants get various welfare programs at rates higher than native born Americans. That’s nothing but a drain on taxpayers. My ancestors raised their families on their own because none of those programs existed. Pretty simple to grasp, but not for you I guess.

      you still did not answer my questions………how did they contribute?………just surviving?…paying taxes do not count….the indians already figured out how to survived in the wilderness areas……..did they fund the American Revolution, did they contribute towards science, businesses, etc…….so they did what anybody else did… what?……tell e numbers, version of jobs wealth…….nothing>?……

      That is completely wrong….the biggest demographics by FAR are our own i Welfare………..and they learned it from us……

    Actually very few Americans know the huge number of immigrants we take in a year, both through legal immigrants admitted as legal residents and those who arrive on work visas and never leave. And illegals on top of that. Nor do they know that it is immigration that is causing at least 3/4 of our population growth of 25 to 30 million per decade. They don’t know it because the media doesn’t report it.

    Nor do they know how many immigrants end up on some kind of welfare program, far more than their share of the population, because the media doesn’t report it. They just keep repeating a lot of nebulous rhetoric about the “contributions” of immigrants, And anyone who does point out the actual figures is called a racist and nativist.

    We don’t need any more people. Automation is going to further reduce the job market, and not just at the lower skilled and entry jobs. The only people benefiting are the 1% and they are the ones who keep supporting the mass immigration candidates.

      So to make your point…..can you tell me what contributions your immigrant grandfathers or great gave to this country?…taxes do not count…

      Potential immigrants watch our immigration news closely, waiting for the best time to enter legally or illegally. Here, in so much of California, many, maybe most Americans are ignorant of immigration facts and figures. Not only that, but some get angry when a person tries to enlighten them. They’re really really sold on the idea of poor unfortunate immigrants victimized by supposedly mean-spirited Americans.

      It’s no surprise as the media pumps out pathetic images of illegal immigrants. The media ignores facts like greedy third-world elites who want their poor here for freebies and to send home money that their families there put back into those economies, or greedy American employers who employ them as cheaply as possible.

      A big thing that rarely gets attention is that many greedy American companies also want immigrants as CUSTOMERS FOR their products/services. That spills over from ads to “news” and other TV and internet programs – drama, comedy, etc. – i.e. immigrants being shown as delightful people and anyone against mass immigration as supposedly a racist. Net effect: working-class Americans getting crushed, and if daring to speak out, labeled racists.
