They make at least 2.5x more here factoring in cost of living expenses.

Hmm by having a handful of American babies!

Duh.

There are no jobs here. Even Americans are finding it very hard to find jobs. The housing bubble popped a while back.

So you're advocating breaking the law? Nice. But I'm sure it's only laws that you disagree with?

I am living proof. Jobs are very hard to find...especially here in Mass.

Unless you are bilingual English / Spanish.

I'm not advocating anyone do it. If I didn't have a job and needed to provide for my family and across a line there were not only jobs, but jobs paying 2.5 or more than I would make IF I found a job here, I'd provide for my family without hesitation. My family trumps American pride in a heartbeat.

American pride? How about morals?

There is obviously a fundamental disagreement here about how "immoral" violating this particular law is. I don't think it's immoral in the least.

Apparently the 30+ million illegal aliens in this country agree with you... and the outcome couldn't have been better huh?

Since I've been here the number tossed around has gone from 12-20 to 12-30 and now 30 PLUS million. Impressive.

And naturally the outcome would've been better if more of them were granted residency.
