You're probably right but is it worth deserting their children that way? Who knows for sure what could happen to the and how long they will be separated from them?

Here is an article from a Guatemalan newspaper website:

Thanks Obama and company.

Don't worry. All of the illegal alien butt-kissers will soon get their wish. We will soon be a Third-World nation overrun by the ignorant poor who will then proceed to add millions more.

We can kiss a once-great nation goodbye.
Yes Cathy, and that's why I was very careful to say I wasn't talking about one particular poster. I jumped off of your post because that was when it occurred to me that, even though I agree 100% that we have a huge problem, it seemed to me that some people were seeing these other people as things (animals?) and not human. That scares me. It scares me in this instance, it scares me in war. Maybe it's just the Christian in me.

I'm sorry but I never saw any posts that implied that illegal aliens are animals or that they aren't human. All lawbreakers are human but that has nothing to do with their actions.

So what do you suggest that we do? These desperate people are only interested in coming to a First-World nation (at the present time) to get the handouts and welfare.

They'll push out one welfare recipient after another as anchor babies. If we want to protect this country--and remain a First World wealthy nation, we cannot afford for the Third World's slum poor illiterates to suck us dry--and that's exactly what they are doing--and will continue to do. They have absolutely NOTHING to offer this country at all.

They could care less about the details of our government and how it is run.

All they care about is that they won't be deported, their kids can get benefits and they can make money to send home.

There is not a damn thing we can do about it except to stand on the sidelines and watch it happen.

An assumption on my part reading that people felt they would be able to shoot them on sight, and I don't think posters here could actually do that even if given the opportunity, I think it's a lot of talk. Psychology teaches that it's easier to harm another person if you see them as less than human. It's something to think about. Bowing out of the discussion because I don't think I belong here and it obviously upsets me.

Most anti-illegal immigration folks aren't for shooting them on sight. Only a few radicals are making those statements. That still doesn't equate to calling them animals or not being human though. It's not only migrant workers that are coming through our southern border but those who seek to harm us. As I said, I am not for using violence at the border but if it actually came down to the Border Patrol having the authority to do that I know they would be instructed to warn them first. What is upsetting to me is the number of terrorists and criminals that are coming through our border. They certainly don't care about our citizens being humans.
