Two questions:
What is your best estimation of the number of illegal immigrants that are intent on killing, raping, robbing, maiming, and torturing Americans as a percentage?

Do you feel mutilation/death that a landmine would cause is an appropriate punishment for a person attempting to enter this country illegally?

This didn't answer either of my questions.

Why is that so important when we are being invaded in other ways?

Actually the Korean War isn't over, and merely in truce at the moment...

You are asking a group that can't even decide a consistent total, which a percentage would depend on...

Not really, I'm sure she has some idea of how many would fit that criteria if she was given a line-up of 10-20 illegal immigrants

Let's assume that it's unwanted (obviously the fact that enough employers want them that states have had to make it illegal to do so disputes that fact, but we can ignore that discussion for now).

Perhaps the term "invasion" would be more functional when the definition being used is being applied consistently. Obviously by your definition, we are being invaded by just about everyone, since illegal immigrants come in some number from nearly every country. Now, do you think that is the kind of "invasion" that South Korea may or may not have to contend with from North Korea? Or would that kind of comparison be embarrassing to the person making it such that they have no place in the conversation at all?

They were not invited here by the U.S. government therefore it is an invasion. The majority of Americans don't want them here either. Only the greedy employers, bleeding hearts and ethnocentrics want them here.

I couldn't care less about South or North Korea and their immigration problems. They can clean up their own mess. My concern is for my own country and its citizens.

"They were not invited here by the U.S. government therefore it is an invasion."

I can only defer to my last post, since you have said nothing new.
