When I read this kind of claptrap, it reminds me of some of the contestants on "America's Got Talent", who think they should win a talent contest because they "want it soooo bad...", whined through teary eyes. And almost all of them do it, or have some sad tale about their childhood, or no parents, or homeless...just some sob story to try and sway the judges.
But it's a talent contest, not a session of democrat congress.
It has always been the democrats thing - victimhood trumps all...they think.
Jesse Jackson railed about how the sharks still swim the same route - to this day - where all the slaves were thrown overboard on their way to America. The Indians have their "trail of tears"...and now those poor mexicans - who brave a frickin' desert - die in pursuit of a better life (you know, free housing, free welfare, free education, free healthcare).
No one ever mentions the people who founded the USA; they also died on boats on the way over, they died from diseases, harsh winters, wild animals, indians, starvation, etc....oh...but most were white, I guess that doesn't count.
Almost any endeavor pursued by mankind has dangers...driving to work probably claims more victims everyday than crossing that desert; accidents at work (even illegals at work) probably claims more lives than crossing the desert to come here illegally in the first place.
Right now, America is really not in the mood to give a $h!+ that these invaders didn't succeed in their CRIME of entering our country illegally. Most would prefer we guard our borders with pill boxes, some even say land mines.
It's a bad time to try and draw a tear from most Americans - well, maybe the obamabots...but they're only crying because they lost a potential (but illegal) vote. But don't worry libs...another one will take his ID off his dead body, and VOTE TWICE.
It's always amazing that most Americans have to PAY TO VOTE (Taxes), while the illegal aliens get PAID TO VOTE (welfare, healthcare, etc). If my Father were to be reincarnated today his first question would be "What country IS this?".

Ah, you're remembering the speech delivered in the well of the House by the deranged moonbat former Congressman Major Owens of NY. His son played Bill Cosby's goofy son-in-law, Elvin, on "The Cosby Show."

I suspect that you are right. The Obama amnesty plan will make voting citizens out of Mexican criminals before the next election.

Other people brave the horror of our immigration service in pursuit of a better life. But that is much less likely to result in death, and makes you a LEGAL immigrant.
