I heard one liberal said America is all immigrants and we should welcome anyone from around the world in and the borders should be wide open.

Someone said that we have all this land we should tear it down and build communities for illegal immigrants.

I happen to know that the poster wasn't being sarcastic. They were serious.

These are the type of people who will destroy our country if they gain any real power in our country. The U.S. is not all immigrants our native born citizens way out numbers our immigrant population. We do welcome 1 million legal immigrants a year but anyone with common sense knows there has to be limits and that's why we have them.

Not even sure what tearing down the land means. Illegal aliens don't have a lawful right to reside here so why would we build communities for them? I never cease to be amazed by the liberals and ethnocentrics who let their emotions rule their heads instead of their brains. Why would they want to do this to our country?

I agree...now it seems some in government are more concerned about the welfare of illegal aliens than they are about legal citizens.

So, does that mean you support new social programs to help the homeless?

How about that imaginary line surrounding the threshold of where you live? Once people who like your house get through your front door, they are free to live their lives in that space. By the way, you have to continue to pay your rent or mortgage, but now you must buy their food and attend to their medical needs. Remember, they are the noble travelers and deserve a comfortable life at your expense..

Pouring billions of dollars to help the homeless hasn't worked so why start anew?

Most homeless are either drug/alcohol addicted, mentally ill or have chosen homelessness as a way of life. Few actually want help. The others who do want help, there are numerous government and non government programs to assist to help them back into society. I would say at this time very few of the government programs has done much to eradicate homeless because the homeless camping on our city back streets has increased.
