    Who cares, they're all dirty illegals that hate America. Even if they're not illegal, they're still brown, and I don't like them.

    I have no problem with legal immigrants, but ILLEGAL immigrants have no right to be in the United States and the only rights they DO have is to be humanely deported back to the country of their origin.

    Actaully some are tan, beige, yellow, and redish something. But your parody is good we should hate them all and they alll need to go back to where they came from. We don't need no immigrants here just send us good Americans after all America is for Americans.

    People with jobs generally don't have time to protest all the problems caused by illegals or the federal government's less than stellar handling of such problems

    It's generally true that people with jobs do not have time to protest period. That is why in the sixties and early seventies the anti-war moement was filled with 'students'.

    BTW - Where are the Tea Party leaders getting all of the TeasCups to protest ? Are they all laid off Lipton employees ?

    They have human rights that were given to them by the Geneva convention.
