I consider the theft of billions in tax dollars from legal US citizens, forcing the closure of 70+ ER's and hospitals, overcrowding of schools with a resultant drop in quality of education for US students, a deterioration of neighborhoods due to flagrant violation of housing codes and generally ignoring the concessions that Americans make to each other to live reasonably peacefully to be 'criminal behavior'.
It is a free country and you can celebrate them as heroes if you wish. However, since you are a real estate agent let me ask you this: how many neighborhoods that experience an influx of large numbers of illegals have a) property values increase or at least remain stable and b) have an increased quality of life for the long term residents, people who lived there prior to the illegals?

be happy, smile, enjoy your stay on earth, and try to take the most from it, God bless you

travelling fella...if everyone believed the same thing, dont you think the world would be boring?
the fact is, not everyone has the same ideals, and though you feel so strongly about your faith, some others may not have the same beliefs.
maybe the movie really fades to black, and thats all there is...
while i share your sentiment, i should remind you, even in bibical times there were borders, and though people were encouraged to love one another, mans law was respected...or else.

people cant just pick and choose the laws they want you follow.

peace be with you

I respect everyone's beliefs vivski, that's one of the reasons I love to exchange ideas here.

I do dream of a free world it is true, I know right now it is not possible but i'd love to see it one day, but for it to happen everybody would have to agree so if it never happens I respect that too

btw surprise is almost ready, I think it'll be ready today, it is something that was inspired by all the dialogues we've had here, specially the ones with you and your family, honestly I admire you it takes soul strenght to endure what you have endured and not harbor hate in your heart, all of you are always in my heart and prayers, everybody else here too and I mean it, everyone

You are a great American I'm happy I got to meet you

Peace, Love, Light and Harmony
