There is a difference between right and wrong.
OTRA VEZ!

We're not talking about what's acceptable or what's right. We're talking about needs. If they have REASON to come here.

Before you post, review the thread and see if anyone else has said anything like what you are planning on saying, and then check if anyone has responded.
Otherwise, it just gets repetitive.

REASON has nothing to do with it. Illegal is illegal.

Don't hurt yourself, man. I guess what I'm talking about what a little too abstract a thought.

Anti it goes without saying that we have it better than they do. It also goes without saying that americans should not have to sacrifice anything to elevate the standards SOB. Those people regardless of cause, need or desire have intruded themselves upon us. Just as if a family moved into your garage uninvited and insist that you accept them. I myself will never accept illegals or the demands they place upon us. WE have a valid system in place. I already posted a link that shows that only 36% of applicants are denied. I don't agree with many laws. But I still obey them. I love Thailand but don't agree with many of their laws. But when I go there I obey them. Thats called respect. Illegals lack respect for our laws and for US citizens. That is the reason for the animosity towards them.... Its not about race, gender or ethnic background.

Bravo, well stated. Nobody likes or should be forced to accept the unacceptable. They would better serve themselves by cramming acceptance of themselves down the throats of their own government and oligarchies, in their own country.

Apparently, their own country doesn't want them. We don't want or need them either, what's so hard to understand about that reality? Nobody drug them here and we shouldn't be forced live like we are in mexico or any other foreign country. Nor should we be forced to pay for their well being, their offspring, livelihood or transport back to their countries of origin for that matter.
