Re: ICE Raids (ongoing immigration raids) (MERGED) Look check it out.... I am a US citizen by birth...my parents are naturalized...it was only by the slip of a condom that I was born in the US. My wife is also a first generation US citizen, her parents are naturalized...hell 2/3's of her family are naturalized. It's a process, you go through it and you are done. My best friend 'fast tracked' as he won some freaking lottery or some shit...and he got it done faster some how. My cousin Igor actually joined the US army and he got fast tracked, plus he was a citizen of Russia and Canada...so I think being a Canuck helped. Again all part of the process, we came here learned the language, most of my wife's family are doctors, lawyers and "productive" members of society. Me I'm sort of a dumb ass...but that's to be expected... Illegal immigration is nothing but slavery. It profits people who would make money off the backs of slaves. It is one of the most degrading forms of treatment one person can inflict on another...and sadly most that are trying to "help" don't get this. I have seen first hand what evil one man can perpetrate against another, perpetuating illegal immigration and trying to "help' makes things worse as it breeds a false hope. One of my wife's cousins is in a hospital in the Philippines dying of AIDS because some guy promised her that he could get her into the the US because he knew someone who would get her a green card...if you would like I have more examples of how gullible people in my and my wife's family were ripped off or injured due to the greed of men who promise, based on the misconception, that once you get here, you can stay, "no papers needed". The safest thing in the world is for the US to be ultra strict on immigration, it will deter countless people from risking their lives and the lives of their children for the promise of a "better life" in subjugation and misery.
