There are a lot of things in this world that are unethical...but guess what ILLEGAL IS still illegal. If they follow the law I have no problem helping in what ever way I can...but still ILLEGAL is wrong. When someone sneaks in without the benefit of green cards, they pay no taxes except consumption tax, they have no insurance, this hits you in the pocket, taking aways from every hard working American. If you haven't noticed we are almost bankrupt...we can not afford to continue to pay for individuals that don't pull their own.@mugsy --hiding slaves, teaching them to read, etc was illegal also. That law was changed. Some laws are just plain wrong and need to be changed to reflect better who we are as good, decent Americans.
When the law is wrong it takes people with backbone to say so and to choose to disobey. I can tell you right now that I WILL help people get medical help. I WILL help people who need food, I WILL help people get an education. My conscience would not let me do otherwise.
And I believe that there are a lot of good people in the U.S. who will do the right thing --maybe not the legal thing.
If you did studies on who was coming over the border you too would be worried. This is how terroist get into this coutry. But that's a whole other thread.
Since you want to bring up laws that are unethical would you like to debate gay marriage...after all it's unethical to withhold a right of any other American to legally wed their partner. Ethically this is a right that anyone should have. But wait that's not the "Christian" thing to do is it. Pick and choose your ethics.
