Illegal is illegal. It really is that simple. Nothing more need be said or is needed.

What happens when you steal a car, and then return it?

What happens when you smoke pot in Colorado in 2007 vs in 2017? What about the fact that it is still illegal under federal law?

What about the financial burden put on myself and my family due to illegal aliens? I don't want to assist a low income needy illegal person. I want to keep the money I worked for to spend on myself and my family. It's not hard to understand.

"Yeah I guess I don't really think it's fair to compare someone's documentation and status in a country with breaking and entering."

They "BROKE" the law and entered ILLEGALLY

"Especially when half of them actually entered legally and then overstayed their visas"

Which makes them ILLEGAL ALIENS

Sorry if you can't see it.

Then I'd expect the same amount of outrage for the following laws each time they are broken:
-connecting to unsecure wi-fi
-singing happy birthday in public
-playing poker at home with your friends for money
-speeding
-driving without a seatbelt on
-using your cell phone while driving
-underage drinking
-smoking pot
-peeing outside
-opening someone else's mail
-failing to update a driver's license after moving
-not getting a dog license
-jaywalking

And if anyone who is caught breaking those laws, they will face the consequences.

BTW, there is no law against singing "happy birthday" in public. That song is now in the public domain:

"Happy Birthday" song officially recognized in public domain - CBS News

It always amazes me how invasion cheerleaders try to claim that illegal immigration is okay by talking about other laws that get broken

Smoking pot is a victimless crime.

Grand theft auto, just like illegal immigration is theft, and cost US taxpayers $113 BILLION a year.

Not to mention identity theft and the theft of employment from legal Americans.

Oh and lets not forget tax fraud.

I have not once said that this is my goal, just pointing out the pervasive hypocrisy taking place here.
