Sorry, I was NEVER an immigrant! I was BORN here and my family has been here for GENERATIONS. My dad and brothers, even my husband fought in the military for this country, I promise you that no ILLEGAL EVER served our country in war time! Illegals should be shipped home or made to serve our country in the military for at least 8 years. If you want to be American then there is no better way to prove you are sincere. Our country has fought for our freedoms and many have lost their lives so how many illegals are willing to put their lives on the line for this country? Remember, freedom is never free, it comes with a price.Liss,I’m quite surprised by the tone of this thread. First, many of us immigrants do in fact pay taxes here, understand the language, and probably know more about
UShistory than many citizens. Under your proposed regime, would you hold citizens to the same standards as immigrants? Would all citizens have to prove that they can read, write and speak English fluently? Should they be able to show that they understand UShistory and
government and have a good moral character? There are tons of citizens who don’t hold up to that standard.And take a moment to remember that you were ALL immigrants once.Budget101_@yahoogroups.com [mailto:
