When I was a kid I often heard the saying, “Crime doesn’t pay.” And back then, such was usually the case. Though there were most certainly exceptions, in general, it seemed to me as though most criminals eventually paid for their crimes. And back then, it also seemed to me that most people believed that’s the way it should be. Boy, how things have changed.

Nowadays, there appears to be a growing number of people who believe criminals should not have to pay for certain crimes. By justifying these crimes in their own minds, they dismiss the impact the crimes have on society at large and, in time, come to view the crime as no crime at all. The most obvious modern example of such a crime is illegal immigration.

It absolutely is a crime that pays, granted the individual safely crosses the border. That's why I can't blame anyone who does it.

So let me get this straight, if I accidently leave my front door unlocked and a stranger makes it safely into my house you don't blame them for stealing my stuff?

This is such a good post, you have written. Ironically even now, there are some, that don't hold illegal's responsible for their crimes. I clearly understand the points in which you also have made. Good Post.

I absoutely would, unclocked doors is no excuse, for any one walking into your home, and clearing it out. I would positively blame them.

it pays for some but not for others.
american labor aka american taxpayers pay dearly. they should have fought illegal immigration for the last 30 years with trade unions, as has france.
but they didn't. how come? bek american labor is anti labor.

No, not stupid at all. You said:

You said you didn't blame them if they made it safely across the border and that crime does indeed pay by doing so. I see no difference in my analogy.
