If we legalize these criminals, it will be similar to the story of the snake: A snake was trapped under a rock, and begged a man to rescue him from certain death. Against his better judgment, the man rescued the snake, and the venomous snake immediately bit him. Shocked and dying from the bite, the man asked the snake why he would do such a horrible thing in return for his kindness. The snake responded, "What did you expect? Duh, I'm a snake."
Sadly, from those who come here and give birth to anchors as a source of income to those who can slit the throat of another human being with no remorse, life is not precious and holds little if any value. Even more tragic is that it's a culturally embedded mindset.

I normally agree with you but I don't think killing someone is a culturally embedded mindset of all or even many Mexican/Latino illegals. They obviously have no respect for our borders and will lie and cheat to remain here but "purposely" killing another human being would only be reserved for a minority of them.

Too large a minority however. Check out the homicide rates in countries like Honduras and El Salvador, Guatemala. Those countries have homicide rates signifantly higher than ours. Life is cheap there.

It's very easy for someone to kill and head on over the USA border to escape justice.

You could be right. I really don't keep up on the homicide rates of Latino illegals. I know many of them drink and drive without licenses and insurance and get into accidents which takes lives. I read about the other homicide cases in here all the time. Anyway as many have said in here one American life taken by an illegal is one too many. I just like to stick to arguing from a rule of law standpoint in my objection to illegal immigration and the negative impacts such as American jobs they take, our increases in taxes, uncontrolled population growth, and the dilution of our culture and language. Of course the more vile things like murder and rape are certainly among the best arguments also.

Murder rates in Central America highest in the world, UN study shows - New York Daily News

Honduras and El Salvador have the highest homicide rates in the world as killings reach a crisis point in Central America, a United Nations report said Thursday.

But they'll work for peanuts!!
