Illegals abandoing wives, children - even very young children, their elderly and their people is what's cruel.

Look what becomes of the lives of little children whose own mothers have abandoned them for the big easy money and government handouts, the cruelty of towns and villages filled with very elderly raising tiny children, children whose parents loved the big money more than they loved their children.

Also the cruelty to the neighbors who don't have a remittance relative sending US dollars back who cannot keep up with the raising inflation.

As an American, I'm ashamed of this. As we all should be.
Say you came across an accident, people who might be seriously injured and obviously in need of help. Does your Christian self just go on past, because hey, they look Hispanic?
Yes, I do have a brain and this entire thread offends me.
What the hell has happened to Americans?

Are you denying that Jim Crow policies were the law? Did the blacks who opposed them lack respect for our laws? Were the protesters who broke those laws not criminals?

FWIW, blacks were not "owned property" during Jim Crow. They chose to break those laws, did they not? As they should have, since they were unjust laws meant to artificially create a caste structure. Just like immigration laws.

I wouldn't equate rapists, murderers, and burglars with protesters who broke Jim Crow laws, no. Mostly because when Rosa Parks sits in the front of the bus she's not harming anyone, not in the legal sense of causing damages the way a murderer or rapist or burglar is. Likewise, when I hire someone who happens to have been born over on the wrong side of an imaginary line, I'm not harming anyone else. Nobody else owns that job.

I agree, they don't have a right to it. Neither does anyone else. Everyone has a right to compete for it, even though some people would like to use violence to exclude large numbers of people from that competition.

The sort of work most illegals do is usually something so low that we spoiled Americans wouldn't stand for it.
