No, I am not saying that at all. The question was raised why would people go to such extremes, I answered it.

It's because they don't have a border with the U.S-- or they too would come by droves. Why do you think our wars have been fought off American soil?

Well you're basically saying they have their "reasons" for coming and testing my "sympathy" meter.

Does that equate with me saying it isn't illegal?

So explaining something = justifying it. I love the way your brain works.

I have a LOT more sympathy for those Chinese than I do for most Mexicans. With that said I STILL would want them deported when caught, just like ANY OTHER ILLEGAL ALIEN. Stop looking for discrimination when there is none, you two are starting to sound like Al and Jesse.

If we shared a border with china, I have no doubt chinas population problem would have been solved shortly after the start of the cultural revolution
If we shared a border with darfur, I also have no doubt there would be so many people running in that it would make the mexican numbers look small by comparison.
I also know that Mexico is not china nor is it darfur and there really is no reason for this mass exodus of mexican nationals except it saves the mexican government from having to actually solve its poverty and classist problems. And that ain't right.

Illegal is illegal is illegal, but it is true that some illegals are fleeing genocide and repression while others just want free health care. And that also ain't right by anyones book.
