You too have a very good heart. However, the person who goes by the name AMERICAN said it best in comment #99 above:My grandparents emigrated from Canada to the USA (they were originally from the Ukraine & Poland) two weeks before the U.S. immigration laws changed and would have stopped them from coming to America. Those who cry foul when an honest, hard-working family illegally enters our country to better their lives need to ask themselves:(1) Are they Native American? If not, their people were illegal immigrants, too. Just ask the Indians.(2) Do they welcome illegal immigrants when farmers need farm workers, restaurants need busboys, hotels need maids, nursing homes need care-givers, businesses need engineers, etc.?(3) Do they judge others on their merits (honesty, integrity, work ethic) instead of stereotypes?(4) Do they know how dangerous these countries of origin have become thanks, in large part, to our policies and wars?(5) Do they know we are a nation of immigrants and that is why America is called "the great melting pot?" (6)(7) Do they understand that immigrants enrich our cultural heritage?(8) Do they have any compassion in their hearts? I support anyone who comes to this country with a desire to create a better life for himself and his family. Those who wish to commit crimes, whether they're illegal immigrants or U.S. citizens, are the true danger to our society. I don't care if they commit their crimes using a gun or a fountain pen. They are the true rot within our country. Leave the good people of all ethnicities, backgrounds and citizen status alone. It's the right thing to do and who knows? One of these illegal immigrants just might find the cure for cancer.
P.S. A similar post I wrote disappeared. Please forgive me for being redundant if it mysteriously reappears.
“A country with no borders and no laws...is no longer a country.....”
Bottom line: If the US is to survive, we need to shut down the borders. The only entries to this country are to be legal ones.
