Because illegal aliens are criminals and their mere presence is a slap in the face of legal immigrants who played by the rules.

Speaking for illegals from Mexico/Central America (about 85% hail from there); their 'culture' does not believe in the rule of law so, why do we need to stoop down to their level?

Accept the fact that prejudice is growing against illegals: either they leave of their own volition or, things will become very ugly as in seizure of their assets, being held in camps prior to their deportation..........or worse (for them).

Not even a relevant analogy... Actually, that's the worst analogy that I've read on this forum.

Doesn't answer any questions. However it shows your wrong views of culture (ignorant views really). Also, why detention camps? Wait, you're kidding...this is a joke. Aha...you pretend to be ignorant and just a talking head just to galvanize people into thinking up better solutions.

All Americans are catering to them via the United States Government. Our tax dollars take care of them. Did that slip your mind?

Ignorant?

Tell that to Australia---------that nation seizes illegal aliens and keeps 'em in camps prior to their deportation.

Also; Singapore flogs illegal aliens (males only I believe) caught in their nation.

And the way that Mexico treats Guatemalans is a disgrace (rape, beatings, theft, etc).

Yes, and those things are NOT okay. The Taliban denies education for women, should we also start doing that too? Just becasue one country may have questionable methods of handling a situation doesn't mean we have to follow the same path.

So I take it this you are not "pretending", that you are not somehow like Colbert. At one point I thought "wow, this is a great idea" but now I realize that it's not the case...

Let me guess: in your eyes; cancelling birthright citizenship (if both parents were here illegally) would also be wrong i.e. violating human rights---------------never mind that most First World nations have already rescinded it?
