You don't torment or harrass people, either.

What you SHOULD do, though, is stop them from ever getting into such predicaments. (It involves the "F word"....which I know is pretty controversial on this forum). You have a border enforcement program that's more than just a sorry joke, and you enforce it....(remember, we put a man on the moon)...But you don't take advantage of people in distress. Period.
Very much agreed.

That is the level of stupid cruelty America is heading.

Why can't we work with the Mexican government to fix this issue? We can spend billions attacking and "fixing" the Middle-East but we cannot work with our own neighbor to resolve this and stop showing the ugly side of both of these countries.

My guess is that the MinuteMen will be behind this.
My guess is that they aren't. The Minutemen are really the boogey man for you folks, aren't they? You see them behind every tree.

While I certainly don’t condone puncturing water supplies, I also don’t condone aiding illegal entry into this country. They should not have water tanks or anything else to facilitate crossing the desert. The last time I checked, it was “illegal” to aid and abet illegal immigration. Of course, that law isn’t being enforced either, as evidenced by our sanctuary cities.

I'd go further and **** in the tanks. I'm a heartless bastard, sue me.

Hey, you can survive off the nutrients provided from urine, so why not? I'm just doing my part.

I don't care if the tanks are being drained. Finally someone is brave enough to be the "bad guy". We need more "bad guys". Why are they there in the first place? Why does America have to take care of every single person, whether they are doing right or wrong. We have to help everyone, we have to feed everyone, we need to worry about what everyone is thinking about us. To hell with doing what is politically correct. When do we care about the people that are here starving and not having enough water. It's a freakin' desert, there is no water in the desert, I think you learn that in 1st grade and if they don't know that, that is their problem!

Funny how you see it only as one-sided arguments... no, not really, actually I expected it from you... Acts of vandalism? The water tanks were used as resources for criminals... personally, I don't think they should exist at all, I rather we station ICE people at every one of them and deport everyone that comes that way... would that make you feel better? No? I didn't think so...

I can just picture them trying to justify it.
"We're just trying to stop them from coming! After the first few die, then the others will get the lesson!"
I suppose high oil prices or high milk prices are also attempted murder, lets bring those oil CEOs and farmers in and convict them... some people have real "loose" definitions of attempted murder...

√ Vandalism OK
And there wouldn't be any laws to break if we actually enforced our laws... huh... doesn't that beat all, if it takes vandalism for people to start enforcing the laws then DO IT...

I'm guessing you speak from personal experience, or at least from studying on the subject.

For all of those who say being against immigration doesn't mean youre racist or hateful should pay attention to these posts.
How far are we from ending up with this kind of attitude towards immigration?

Thin line, very thin line.
