Do you think that Real America (big businesses, big corporations, service industries, giant franchises, high middle class, industry) is against Illegal Immigration?

During the XIXth Century, poor "Natives" hated to death the waves of Italians, Irish, Poles, Jews, etc, many illegals, many were lynched and killed. Immigrants were treated like scum and sent packing to the Civil War as soon as they arrived. Many considered Italians and Irish below American blacks.

Did this hatred stopped Immigration (legal and ilegal)?

Of course not.

Are Illegal Immigrants really illegal?

Are embezzlers really thieves?

As long as the murders, rapes, kidnappings, ID theft, and credit fraud is happening to everyone EXCEPT our elected local/state/federal officials, their family members, and close friends -- illegal Entry into the U.S.A. is officially NOT A PROBLEM.

Some embezzlers are thieves, other are heroes.
Some embezzlers are Presidents, CEO, etc.

When you cross a border without going through an official port of entry with a passport or visa, you have illegally entered that country.

So subjective, really...
If Illegals do it, it's because they can.
Don't tell me that the US can't stop them...
The Americans invaded those lands because they could do it.
Locals have this tendency, you invade their country but they are always swarming around.
Spain invaded that country some 500 years around..and now Mexico is packed with Mexicans!!!!
How suprising!!! They are stubborn!!
