Without the rule of law, there is anarchy. It is not appropriate in any lawful society to allow one group of people to disregard sovereign law while expecting the rest of the population to abide by the same.

There are countries in which poverty is abject. People die by the thousands every day, many of them children. Mexico is NOT one of those countries and it's proximity to our southern border does not give its citizens the right to flagrant disobey our laws in order to "support their families."

Why don't its citizens grow some cajones and fix their own country.
Because it's easier to steal someone elses bread then it is to bake your own.
