You pass the North Korean border illegally you get 12 yrs. hard labor, you pass the Afghan border illegally you get shot, you go into Venezuela illegally, they kicked you out with no mercy, you pass the American border illegally you get a job, driverís license, allowance for a place to live, health care, education, billions of dollars spent so you can read a document. We
carry passports in other countries or face jail time.

WHY ARE WE WARRANT THE PEOPLE WHO BROKE THE LAW WITH GOODS? I might as well declare to be an illegal immigrant.

Because some people think that laws are those things that apply to other people.

It's because OTHER nations are not steeped in unbridled greed like the US which is a nation that cannot let go of free and cheap labor. The US who depended on slave labor for most of her history is not about to let go of that tradition now because Americans LOVE money.

Other nations are not so hung up in making a buck that they will accept bribes and allow cheap labor in. Illegal immigration will stop when greedy businesses stop hiring them. No demand no supply. Simple as that.

I hope you aren't lumping all of us Americans together as being greedy. These crooked employers have nothing to do with most Americans who put rule of law above greed.

But American society including politics is CONTROLLED by greedy capitalists and always has been. It has always been about big business in this country. Slavery was only outlawed when it was no longer a profitable enterprise for the country. If it was it would still be going on today.

People can say what they will about filmaker Michael Moore but he does make a lot of informative movies about capitalism in America and how greed and profit controls pretty much everything in the US. He even showed a film clip in which a big businessman was standing next to President Nixon giving him orders on what to say so who was really running the country?

Illegal immigration will never go away as long as big business is being satisfied. I predict big business will start backlashing against states like Arizona that try to reform illegal immigration. I am waiting for the fallout. I am quite sure that Sheriff Joe is in their crosshairs as I speak. There is no way that big business is going to lose their profits from illegal immigration just like the giant pharmaceuticals are going to backlash "healthcare reform".

Slavery is still going on today, more so then ever before.

Slavery is still widespread in Africa (some countries only outlawing it recently do to external pressure) like it was before Europeans arrived.

And still is widespread in Asia and the Middle East as well.

Well don't tell Wal-Mart or any of the other greedy American businesses that. Illegal immigration will be over for sure and slave ships will be sailing once again for those African shores to take advantage of the free labor.
