You didn't link your pictures. Are they pictures of the wives and children abandoned by illegal males in search of their better life of no family responsibilities? Are they pictures of millions of unemployed Americans? Or the maternity wards filled with new welfare mothers?

When will any of these people ever decide to do something for their own country so they aren't always trying to flee it?

Illegals could have a better life in their own country if they would learn self-control and responsibility, stop having children they cannot afford, finish school.

Unemployment rates in Mexico are far far below those in the USA.

A link to the page is in my post. As other photographs, these are copyrighted works. If each one is "worth a thousand words", we effectively have a book.

No, you'll need to find those pictures, and the sources of that detail, on your own...

Most of the pictures are of Central Americans traveling through Mexico...

I still don't see any link.

It doesn't matter --- no picture is going to give any convincing reason why the USA should be the only nation in the world that has no immigration laws and no borders. You have still not made any case for why every foreigner who chooses to break our laws should be rewarded with citizenship. Or why we must take in all the impoverished of the world and their sky high birth rates and feed them, house them, provide them free health care the rest of their lives.

I would like to see you do it! I bet you wouldn't last 5 mins.

Too bad ILLEGAL aliens do last 5 minutes because it'd be a good thing those crooks got the message and went back HOME. Me and BigDGeek WON'T cross the border illegally and def WON'T try to live in another country without asking 1st.

What other crimes can be justified with pathetic pictures of those committing the crimes? How about bank robbery? Or shoplifting? Or embezzlement?

Again, most of the pictures cover Central Americans trekking through Mexico, when we've heard "shoot on sight" fiction on this forum before that awaits those migrants...

The point is that they like any criminal assumes the risk for their illegal endeavors. I don't feel any sympathy for criminals when misfortune happens to them while they violate the law.
I feel sympathy for the victims of crime. The victims of ID theft. The victims of uninsured drivers. The victims of violent crimes. I feel sympathy for construction workers forced from their trades by low balling illegals.
I feel sympathy for people waiting to enter this country legally. The ones who have paid their fees and jumped through the hoops.
For the cheats, the liars, the illegals? They deserve no sympathy, no free pass and certainly no special consideration.
5 min.? I would wager most can last a day. I would wager I could last the entire trip. Every year the guys from my former team and I get together and do the desert survival challenge, or jungle survival. Depends who is hosting. 3 years ago we did Thailand jungles. None of us have any desire to do arctic challenge LOL. We are all too old and to wise to call that fun.

Yet again, you missed the point.
