Virtually all illegals are frauds, tax evaders and exist by breaking a number of our laws. Illegal apologists like to compare illegal immigration to crimes such as jay walking , speeding or gasp, rolling a stop sign.
The reality is Illegal immigration is a crime that leads to many more crimes.
Jay walking doesn't force the person to speed, drive without a license, commit fraud or tax evasion. A jaywalker may be all the above but the crime of jay walking doesn't require additional criminal activity.
I travel a lot and have never had to violate laws because I entered another country legally. In fact I make it a point not to knowingly break their laws.
Illegals it is all premeditated acts.

These threads will keep getting closed, because despite what some of you apparently think, this is not an illegal immigration issue. Rapes, as horrible as they are, happen regardless of legality or immigration status.
Let's say you live in Nevada. Would a separate thread every time someone from Nevada raped someone be ok ? "Man from Nevada rapes (..)". Like it's somehow a Nevada issue ? It's not. What would you think of someone who constantly posted about Nevada citizens raping ? Opinionated ? To put it lightly.
I realize you are angry and to a large extent I can understand that. But that's not a good reason to somehow demonize whole populations/groups.
I'm a fan of the law, and that includes legal immigration. I'm not a fan of manipulating others by using emotions into a frenzy, and that's what I can often observe here.
