Have you guys heard about that new movie, which is about some guys life crossing the border or something. This is going to be so bad because everyone is going to feel so bad for these INNOCENT illegals. I have heard that this movie is already getting recommended for oscars and other awards.

I get so sick of the endless sob stories. I won’t watch this movie, and don’t know anyone who will. Rather than trying to tug at our heartstrings with illegal aliens, they should make a movie showing U.S. citizens losing jobs and homes due to illegal immigration. But, that wouldn’t support their amnesty agenda.

It's pretty awesome how like virtually every study that says they are a net benefit is bias but afaik the only ones that show net drains are FAIR and CIS studies, and both groups are funded by white nationalists, both started by the same person with many white nationalist ties and yet there is no question of their agenda and their accuracy is never in question once lol.

Probably not the same movie, but you could watch "Crossing Over":



I liked it...

In this case the new movie is called "A Better Life":



Looks good...

I don't care WHO did any study, illegal aliens are invading MY country and there is no sweet writing person who can justify it.

It is wrong, it is illegal, it is immoral.

Illegal aliens can whine and tell the most heart wrenching stories, it's like water off a ducks back..... Talk to the hand......

These people should stand up to their own government(s) who are treating them like dogs and do something about it in their own country to fix the social injustices.

A lot of smart people will also feel that way. Amazing that even "dumb" people can recognize human rights abuses.

How is illegal immigration a “human rights” issue? What moral obligation do we have to grant yet another amnesty to untold millions of illegal aliens? Why aren’t you and other pro-illegals accusing Mexico and other countries of human rights violations? After all, they have refused to improve conditions for their citizens, preferring to dump them on the taxpayers of this country, while they reap the benefits of billions of U.S. dollars received on a monthly basis.

We legalized 3 million in 1986, and it resulted in 12-30+ million twenty years later. Why on earth would we even contemplate making the same mistake again? No, we need to stringently enforce our laws, and send a message to every person in this country illegally, that we will not tolerate this invasion.

They need to return home and fight for the human rights. We owe them nothing.

I'd like to know the same thing. Why is a foreigner here illegally a human rights issue for us? Why isn't it a human rights issue for the country that they fled from? What about the human rights of Americans who are being negatively impacted by this invasion?
