Why is a person who scams their way into the United States, falsifies documents and/or steals identities in order to live and work here unlawfully entitled to the rights of citizens?

This is an honest question to all people advocating for the rights of "undocumented immigrants". Why do you think they are a righteous cause?
Who are these people who think illegal immigration is right?

Why do people think holding the position that 'human beings should be treated with at least a bare minimum of decency regardless of their immigration status" is the same is "illegal immigration is a right"?

They are not.

Why are we not just shooting people dead as they try to cross the border? Why are we not gassing the people held in detention facilities? I mean, apparently illegal immigrants are subhuman monsters and democrats are literal demons so why isn't Trump calling for every one of them to be dragged into the streets by their hair and their throats cut and their bodies burned in the public square as a warning to all?

Apparently there IS a limit somewhere, or we'd be doing that or calling for it. So is acknowledging that there is a moral limit somewhere equate to no limits at all?

If you don't think all democrats and illegal immigrants should be executed, does it make you an evil commie ******* sympathizer who is just as bad and should die too?

Those people who set up sanctuary cities, and tell criminal illegal immigrants/ MS13 to run/hide ignore the law.

We all know who that group is.

Yes, we can say that but:
In general this migration became a trend. Conditions in some central and South American nations have been terrible for centuries but the instant migration to US didn’t exist. Why weren’t they heading north in the 1950s? On top of that recent US policies are very tough (like separations between parents and their children) yet they are still flowing north. Would you move to a country that treats people in such ways? I wouldn’t and most people won’t. Something is pushing these poor souls to migrate (it may be politically motivated).

Why dont you describe their actual treatment and not launch into an absurd tirade?
