Perhaps this is just another weak excuse from the never ending list of weak excuses by illegal alien sympathizers which are used to prevent immigration laws from actually being enforced.

Btw, you may think my supposed "attempt" was weak, but you're not exactly helping to absolve charges of militant prejudice with remarks implying that just because there may be a large percentage of illegal immigrants in a certain area it's ok to treat all immigrants like they are criminals.

Hey, if you don't want to give stuff to people then stop giving stuff to people. People who take what you're giving away are not stealing, BTW.

Every single person arrested for something other than murder, robbery or rape should appeal on the grounds that we're wasting limited resources prosecuting them.

When you accept something under false pretenses or by using false information you are indeed stealing what you accept.

Not only that but it isn't "we" the people who want to give free stuff to illegal aliens. Our hands are tied by stupid laws that need changing and pandering politicans.

Jobs are a resource and it's a big problem for the millions of unemployed Americans that any foreigner can waltz on over and take jobs.

We have zero jobs being created yet people continue to pour over the border. How can we take in the world's millions or billions of uneducated impoverished people when our government has run out of money to pay for their health care needs and education needs and food stamps needs, and jobs are leaving the country?

Apply these charges all you want. I could not care less because these are just more weak tactics by illegal alien supporters to try to justify not enforcing immigration laws.

Plus there is a reason their own countries don't want them back.

If they were responsible, hard working, tax paying types, you'd know their own country would encourage them to return home but that's not the case.
