If an illegal alien woman in the late stages of pregnancy enters the US, delivers a 'child which will be used to anchor his/her illegal parents in the US' and walks off without paying the $5000 bill, that is also theft. It is theft of services.
Amen! Theft is theft. Should we absolve a shoplifter if the amount is less than what would be classified as a felony?

Thanks for the backup. I owe you one.

How sad, though, that my question should even REACH the point point that it's considered 'sarcasm'. "What's the difference between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants" might SEEM sarcastic....but it shouldn't. Nor should it sound 'smart-aleck', 'mean', nor 'racist'.

The fact that it DOES is not your fault, though. Just had to make that observation.

How true! It's sad that 'legal' no longer has relevance. I guess it's simply a byproduct of our "anything goes" society. Ethics is considered taboo; only the ‘meanies’ subscribe to it.

Pretty judgemental of you, Benicar.....I'm surprised. How many 'meanies' do you know? How can you make such a blanket statement like that? Meanies are people, just like you and I.....they're just a little 'meaner', that's all...(If you catch my meaning....)..

We'll be talking to each other again....meanwhile, think about what I said.....

I just hate it when I'm 'called out' on something. For your information, I personally know quite a few 'meanies' and have even been accused on numerous occasions of being one; thank you very much.

Grow up----------both of you!

ID theft is indeed stealing along with working and not paying taxes------of which most illegal aliens age 18 up are guilty of. Both crimes are Felonies as well.

Besides: English is the language of City Data as per Yac.

Most illegal aliens? Is that for sure?
Are you counting the number of illegal aliens who didn't sneak into their country, who actually are here illegally because their visas have expired?
Or those who just make up a number for a job that doesn't really care too much about their identity?

Does it matter? They are thieves in the night. They cost us money in everything they do. Deport them. They are all criminals.

It does matter when accusing people of identity theft when they may not be committing it.
