DEPORT THE UNLAWFUL, TROUBLE MAKING ALIENS!!!! What are they so proud off? their illegal status? They should be wanting to legalize themselves instead of causing so much havoc! Just keep rearresting them for longer periods each time until officials DEPORT THEM FOR GOOD!!! This is no way to get forced support? their forceful ways will only get Americans more anti-illegal sentiments than they bargained for. They are proud? of what? They aren't even trying to legalize themselves!!!! they blew it, because they won't qualify NOW....AFTER ALL THE HAVOC they're causing. Hope they all KILL THEMSELVES IN THEIR STUPID JOURNEY.

We don't care about your culture nor what is best for your illegal alien families. It's not your country, it wasn't built upon your corrupt culture, and we don't want you here. Leave.

More la ratza crapola from juan I see. So now we know how juan really makes his cash...posting la ratza crapola. You're a failure even at that juan. Take your families and corrupt culture back to mexihole and try to make it a place worth working and living you coward.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been profiling the undocumented worker for years, that is against the law. Latinos are no different than any other immigrant, we want to maintain our culture and our history.

Latinos or any other ethnic or racial group that LEGALLY come to America are welcome. Illegal aliens are not welcome, are nothing more than common criminals.

If you really are an American, you desperately need to return to school and take remedial ESL classes. It's obvious that English is not you're native language. Or, better yet, you should go back to where ever you swam here from and try bettering the living conditions in your home land.

When 48% of the population is Hispanic and 360,000 of them are illegals and 14% of the states inmates are illegal Mexicans, it isn't racial profiling.

It's statistics.

The riders plan to be a thorn in the side of the Democratic Party, which they blame along with the Republicans for the lack of progress on immigration reform.

There ya go! Good job, BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YA!!!

Great to have a major illegal alien disruption at the DNC!!! I would crack up! Here these people have all but cracked their a$$es for illegal aliens, and this is the thanks they will get.

Didn't anyone tell the dems that with illegal aliens, it it NEVER enough!!!

feels like you don't have much to do. do you have a GED? It saddens me to see and hear people like you wasting time hating on other people that were here before you.(1868 santana's law) Don't you know life is too short to waste it on hate and regret? people like you are usually uneducated, poor and shortsighted. look back at the history of this great nation and you will realize that we are a great nation because of the diversity. Wait!!!! you must be "native american" (in my opinion they are the only one's that have the right to talk about this topic) you ignorant peace of trash.

WOW! another ignorant and below average human being with too much time on his hands... You probably keep complaining about the things you couldn't get or the things you think you deserve and will never have. I'm Hispanic with a mortgage, a six figure income and a great life. and I only have it because of people like you... belly aching on your couch, wondering when things are going to get better!!! Get up! quit your sad and ignorant life and be somebody, Juan, Pedro and Paco are not the problem, you are!. Even after they are gone, you will remain a loser and a hater with no future! have a nice day.

If you want what's best for your family, then why not apply to become a legal citizen? Become a citizen of the country you come to live in and expect to take care of you and your family. I don't think people would have such a problem if immigrants would become tax paying citizens and paid into the welfare system and the public school systems etc... All of us tax payers are footing the bill for the undocumented workers and their families to live a better life, but in the meantime it means less food on our tables, because we pay higher taxes, and a poorer education for our own children because the country is overextended taking care of yours!! Look at it from our perspective. If you want to live here, do it legally!!!
