Now; if we are going to play your game: how about the raging drug wars, growing obesity problem, extreme financial gap between the rich and poor, racism against non White people, etc?? Yes: I am talking about Mexico.
When did anything I stated become attributed to Aliens...if you want them to leave so bad...have you tried asking nicely?...

Who asking for your sympathy...you have no reason for guilt.

He's no different than any other migrant over the last 1000years that struck out over harsh terrain to look for a better life...

its been done by all cultures and all races throughout the History of Man...

Wagon trains of Westward bound immigrants parished in the High Sierras on their way west looking for a better life.

There are Frozen examples of early man traveling on his own to see whats on the other side of the Horizen...

An immaginary line in space is supposed to stop mans urge to travel and see his world.

I dont mourn that man...I salute him. Man made laws dont trump His Godgiven right to control his life. And to hell with Kings, Despots, and Governments.

It's really not that simple.
Anyway you spin it: if dealing with breeders outside of the USA..........they are not our problem. We owe them nothing.

FYI: an inordinate number of the 'fatties' here in the USA are either Black or Mestizo Hispanic out of the total US population. And I will hazard a guess that per capita; more Anchor Babies are obese vs. children of parents here legally.

WRONG! The Rule of Law does supercede individual choice when the rights of the many (citizens of the USA) outweigh the rights of the few (illegal aliens).

The higher level of obesity among sons of immigrants cut across socioeconomic levels and was most pronounced among those whose parents do not speak English, the study found.
It was most prevalent among newly arrived Hispanic immigrants and non-Hispanic white immigrants. Black children of immigrants do not face a higher rate of obesity than their native counterparts, and the problem does not show up among Asian children of new arrivals, although it does appear among children of Asian immigrants who have been in the United States for 15 or 20 years, said Jennifer Van Hook of Pennsylvania State University, the report's lead author.

In today's world every country has immigration laws. It matters not how it was done hundreds of years ago. There is no imaginary line. Countries have distinct borders today. These illegals aren't traveling to see "his" world. They are violating our borders to stay and work here against our laws. They aren't tourists or explorers.

No, it is not their God given right to violate man's laws. "Render on to God what is God's but render onto to Caesar.......and obey the laws of the land."

God's laws also say "do not covet thy neighbor and thou shalt not steal."

Sons of Immigrants to U.S. Have High Obesity Levels, Report Finds - washingtonpost.com
Obesity has much to do with one's cultural foods consumed, an individual's metalobic rate, and heredity. Asians usually stay slim because of their large consumption of rice, fish and other non-fatty foods. As stated though many of them who migrate to the U.S. acquire a taste for American and other cultural foods and come obese also. Hispanics eat a lot of lard laden beans and torillas which was the cultural food of many of their native indian ancestors. Americans are addicted to cheeseburgers, lol. We all need to watch our weight by being careful what foods we consume. Boy, have we gotten off topic? Sorry, had to add my two cents worth.
