    I think that all those people (?) should be sent back to wherever they came from. They are not supposed to be here if they are illegal. Send their sorry butts back. Get rid of all of them.

    Unhappy Ignorance abounds!

      I SAY JUST KILL ALL THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. 

      THEY'RE CALLED "ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS" FOR A REASON. 

       

      They should wait in line just like everybody else to enter the USA. 

      Disapprove

        I think that is the saddest thing I have ever heard of.  The "illegal aliens" are getting the shaft from every direction.  Kind of reminds me  of the struggle that blacks had to gain equal status..this country is so damn racist..!!!!

        No legal aliens are getting the shaft. They pay thousands of dollars and go through many hardships only to be told basically they were idiots for spending a dime and should have come here illegally instead by morons supporting people breaking immigration laws. Not all Mexicans are here illegally but when 1+ million a year break the law to get here it's a big problem. The biggest problem is the gutting of the blue collar class in the US and depression of wages illegal immigration causes.

         I think a lot of the anger going on now is from a government that refuses to enforce the law. I have been in traffic court a few times and each time witness illegals whom have no car insurance and no driving licence get out of paying for damages they caused. People are just getting sick of the total lack of accoutability. The best way to stop it is to have prison terms for any who hire illegal immigrants. Since such employers aren't paying SS or medicare/medicaid tax not to mention income tax withholdings the IRS could do this now.

        On the lottery I think they should be able to collect and then get kicked out for 10 years as the law states.

          I live in an area where the largest population growth has been the hispanic community. I have worked as a computer programmer, mechanical engineer and a draftsman. I have lost my position to outsourcing to foreign countries 5 times. Each time I was unemployed, I depended on a lower paying job until I could find something new.  Now, there are very few jobs available and the pay is terrible for those that exist. Without jobs and constant outsourcing the middle class position is precarious.

          We can't prevent illegal immigration and it would be foolish to try.  I'm afraid we must adjust to a 2 class society. Therefore, it is discrimination to not give away lottery money to a foreigner; be they British, French, Chinese, Hispanic, etc.

            It's only a two class system if we vote for people who put us there.

              absolutely no comparison between the two.

                I have a solution to the illegal alien issue, but it freaks people out.  When we catch one, we put a computer chip in them and return them to Mexico.  If they are caught again, we put them on a work gang building a 20-foot high wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  We can track those chips by satellite.  If they want a job, I'll give them one. 

                We have a right to protect U.S. territory.  How we bought it or stole it is not the issue.  It is our nation and we are obligated to protect it.  If you don't like this or think protecting our nation is racist, go back to Mexico with your new amigos. 

                This is not ignorance.  Refusing to defend American territory when it is invaded by people who don't want to be Americans is ignorance.  Wait!  That isn't really ignorance, it is treason . . .

                  What is bad is that they will not widely advertise that fact that illegal immigrants cannot collect the huge lottery prizes should they win. That fact is hidden away in the fine line that nobody cares to read leave alone a non english speaking immigrant, but you know what "jah shall come so real and right" as the group "Israel vibrations" sang in their song "real and right." Jah cannot be defeated with voilence, Jah will protect his children

                    SmashI didn't say it was ignorance to protect our borders and our country.  I said it was ignorance to say kill them, and all the other ignorances uttered against a group of people that you know nothing about. 

                    Regardless of what the problems are, they are still human beings and don't deserve the ugly things people say about them.  And everybody who speak Spanish aren't  Mexicans.  How ignorant is that?

                    Ya'll act like you would like to hang them from the nearest tree.  I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of people won't just do that.  I'm sure our elected officials will attempt to do what is necessary to solve the problems.

                    If you want to hate somebody, direct it at the government for being slack and greedy employers and all of the other people who profit from it.  Yes I agree, prosecute the employers, but if you did that you would have to prosecute some elected officials as well.

                    But cut out the hatred, it borders on bigotry.

                      A illegal alien ran into my house with a car about 2 years ago, no drivers license, no insurance, the cop let him walk away with no fine! My home insurance would not pay for it because of the uninsured motorist was responsible for damages, it cost me about $12,000.00 (out of my pocket) to have everything fixed, I had just been unemployed 2 months before because my shop closed and moved over sea's. About 1 month after he hit my home he was on the run from police for shooting someone in the leg.

                      Do I think they should be able to collect a prize - H#ll no!!!!!! I do not have a problem with anyone coming to America, just come legally, obey the laws, pay twice the amount of taxes the rest of do, and if you win, send your check to me to pay for the damage your inbreed brother did to my house!!!!

                          The problem would take care of itself if our so called government would make it a serious crime to hire, house, employ, school, etc. illegal aliens (without causing discrimation for legal immigrants) and stop the nonsense where children born here to illegal alien parents automatically become U.S. citizens, even Canada ended that policy.  Oh, and give one time free transportation to back home.

                          Lottery tickets are bearer instruments, anyone should be able to cash one if they have a winning ticket.  Taxes and how much you get can vary, but even criminals should be able to collect what's left after making restitution.

                            Tenaj, bless your liberal pea-pickin heart.  You do mean well.  So did Nevile Chamberlain at the Munich conference in 1938. I don't hate Mexicans as people.  I just want them on their side of the Rio Grande where they can speak Spanish and mess up their country to their heart's content.  That isn't racist.  That is good common sense.  You are free to visit your new amigos any time you want.  On the south side of the Rio Grande.

                              I'm friendly with my Mexican neighbors who work hard and have close family ties. I think they are all here legally, but as long as they take care of their own business, I mind mine. My main complaint is that many people here don't speak any English.  Often ads for employment state "prefer bilingual" which is frustrating. I also find it offensive that foreign flags were waved on Monday while our troops were dying in Iraq. Some people in defense have compared it to the Irish flag being displayed on Saint Patrick's Day, but that's entirely different since that wasn't in protest, it was in celebration the same way on Cinco de Mayo nobody has a problem seeing the Mexican flag waved in good fun.

                              Regarding the lottery, I don't know why being legal or illegal has anything to do with it as long as the maximum tax is deducted.
