lol @ sally…yes and some people are so quick to fight for their point of view they don’t realize that they might be fighting their own side.
I swear, five year olds are more willing to listen and observe (if their parents don’t hype them up with sugar crack).
“The cartoon would be funnier if the subject werent so serious.”
wow, the world is such a serious place these days! but yet, it seems that the people who aren’t so uptight are readier to provide holistic solutions than ones who take the matters very gravely, as if there is no way but down.

At least if you get caught, there’s revenue. Revenue is used up with illegals. This cartoon doesn’t even make a good point. Boooooo!

When there are no jobs for the American people and the illegals then there will be mass killings, people will kill one another for food and/or housing, then illegals and legals will be in the same boat, will then our government put us in the poor house, or the work house, or will just let us eat grass?
Sounds just like what the English did do the Irish, there was food but the food was imported to England, after all the English had to pay their rent and taxes, so what if some of the Irish had to starve to death, or end their life trying to get to America on the infamous coffin ships.

Sally, I agree with what you are saying. But, you missed it again by mispelling my name! Could you be Satty instead of Sally?

Hey Allen, you are correct; I did miss the fuzz-buster, but the sentiment is still the same. I will change my comment just enough to say that you don’t have to be an ignorant bumpkin to PRETEND to follow the law and then expect others to obey the law. The fact is that our President and his cohorts obey only the laws that benefit them, and then work tirelessly to create and pass laws that fit their agendas. The cartoon would be funnier if the subject weren’t so serious.

Some people just don’t get it. The man is driving over 100 mph with a illegal fuzz buster, yet he says you have to obey the law.

If I’m understanding this cartoon, one has to be ignorant to follow the law??? Call me naive and without compassion, but there are reasons for our immigration laws and, it’s true, I am no Einstein, but even I know that it’s big business that has exploited the illegal worker. I certainly bear them (the illegal worker) no ill will, especially given the fact that they have been exploited by business, just as the rest of us have been losing our means of making a living, because illegal workers will work here for less and often take their wages back home where their money goes much further. I realize that corporate outsoursing is a huge part of the problem, as well, and corporate greed is driving both. The ignorant song and dance that claims that “the undocumented worker will do work that Americans won’t do,” is just wrong. There is always an American citizen that will do any job if they are paid a LIVING WAGE, so that they can afford to live in this country. The problem of illegal immigration lies absolutely on the doorstep of business and corporate America and their friends in Congress, the White House, and various business organization.
If I have read this cartoon correctly, I am offended by the observation that I am ignorant because I believe that we should follow the laws we have, to protect the interest of citizens first. Legal immigrants have to follow the existing immigration laws, and those who do not should not come before them and those of us who are legal citizens. Let us heavily fine the owners or businesses who hire illegals and see how this problem will shrink. Make them accountable. If there are no job opportunities for illegal workers, they will stop coming; then more jobs will be available for citizens and at a living wage.

The word “Compassion” should just be taken out of the dictionary, because no one has any in this country.

The business people looking for cheap labor in lieu of “overpaid” U.S. workers are very compassionate. lol

What’s wrong with this picture? The redneck-conservative driver must have married a liberal. She’s reading a newspaper! Good cartoon.
