I think you may be placing your own negative view of me ahead of the situation. I actually tried to avoid that conversation when it was initially posted, which you can note by looking back. Focus on it by others doesn't mean my responding to it should be also taken negatively.<quoted text>
Although you and I may agree on that one example of someone finding out that they are here unlawfully, doing the right thing by going to the authorities, your continued remarks lead me to believe you truly believe that illegals should be allowed exception to our laws or procedures.
Just your last posting regarding the concept that England and other nations thought the people coming here were criminals is very telling. Personally, I couldn't care less what the people in England or any other nation thinks about Americans, and they would do better to focus on their own countries and problems.
Your absurd statement that our laws advocate "gunning down" people is just another example of the ridiculous viewpoint you continue to hold regarding our laws.
I have no belief that people should be allowed exemption purely on the fact that they are illegal. In fact, I would vote against it if such a poll came to bare; However, people's circumstances should be evaluated and their corresponding action against or for a current ruling should be taken into consideration IMO.
If it is ruled that those minors should be exiled and banned forever, then it doesn't make it right and those individuals should still be listened to if they manage to return.
This includes people that come who are not minors.
It will most likely be found in most cases, that their reasons are not just and merit further punishment.
However, the law possibly being in error should never be ignored;
we should consider the choices of peoples as we remember that our forefathers founded America on this principle.
