What is the big deal about immigration?

Will the people of the USA ever realize that at some point they came from somewhere else. Why was it OK for their ancestor's to come and now there is a problem when new people apply for citizenship. All the more reason you guys need a better educational system!!!! Learn your HISTORY!

John Smiths kid is dead (one of over 10,000+ deaths caused by illegal aliens in the US) and his wife's legs had to be amputated (one of 836,000+ injuries caused by i****************s in the US) and he has to pay for these people being here! What is the big deal? Ask John Smith! I do see something wrong!

You should care because if you are a tax paying citizen, you are paying for i****************s to collect welfare, foodstamps and abuse other government agencies.
