I don't believe in paying taxes either - so since that isn't like murder, can I just go without paying them and expect no consequences? I'd really like to stop paying every kind of tax. I'd rather do tax evasion than rob banks or shoplift so how about we live in a world where the laws I don't like are not enforced?

If you think those laws are actually bad for the world, then obviously you WOULD want to live in a world where they are not enforced. How is this even a question?

Honestly, I don't really care if you want to write everything off as "oh he's hispanic, what did you expect him to think" but can you stop with the sob story when people notice the pattern?

PS: I am not illegal, I don't employ any illegals, and I have no ethnic connection to illegals. Well, there are probably some white canadians in the country illegally, but I don't know of any particular ones.

Should we not enforce car theft because a group of people feel it's not fair that some have cars while other have to walk or take the bus?
By the fact they are in the United States illegally they have no civil rights, they are equivlant to a bag of rice.
Also they break a large amount of laws.

You're still wrong about the US. It doesn't really matter what they will do in China.

Do you think the US should be more like China?
