As a foreigner who came here legally, it drives me up the wall when I hear idiots label illegal aliens, which is what they are, undocumented immigrants.

How about I perform open heart surgery on one of these idiots and then when it goes wrong, I get to claim I am simply an undocumented surgeon. I meant well, but I just did not have the appropriate papers stating I am qualified to place a bandage let alone carry out surgery.

I also cannot believe people actually advocate opening up the borders and letting everyone into the country.

One of the biggest problems I have with illegal aliens is that they circumvent the immigration system, which is there to monitor and allow an equitable and diverse range of people from around the world to migrate the country. Why should Latin Americans dominate the immigration system, by basically strong-arming their way into the country?

This very reason is why no other civilized country has any sort of amnesty idiocy, let alone allows illegal aliens to establish themselves in their sovereign country. Also why most of these countries coincidentally also offer a higher standard of living than America; which is actually dropping and approaching 2nd world levels. Why should the United States be strong-armed into paying for Latin America's poor?

It's all part of Obamas instructions to be carried out

promoting open borders, mass immigration, and a watering down of current immigration laws

promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens

I see your point, so the following could be:

Drug dealers - Undocumented Pharmacists,
Pimps - Undocumented Dating Consultants,
Thieves - Undocumented Redistribution Specialists,
Rapists - Undocumented Sex Therapy Technicians,
Murderers - Undocumented Population Control Providers,

I do not know who is responsible but it is ruining the country.

Over the six years on and off I've been here, I've heard it many many times before.

In essence, is not amnesty open borders?

Well, it amazes me how the government can pack up all manner of weapons, and soldiers to send to a foreign land, and kill thousands of people, occupy permanent bases with such skill, and yet, arresting, and deporting millions of illegal parasites is "not practical".
