Right. Families should NOT be separated.

They should STAY in their own country OR get the entire family in line for LEGAL entry.

So let me ask you this joe how can that be if the parents come from two different countries example mom from Mexico and dad from Guatemala
Guess THEY should have considered the CONSEQUENCES of their illicit sexual encounters.

Maybe the 'dad' should marry the woman and make her a citizen of HIS country.

Why would they marry here in a country to which they do not belong?

The man from Guatamala should help the Mexican mother of his children become his wife IN his country of origin and become a legal citizen of HIS country.

Or IN Mexico. But NOT here.

And you don't know about the hardship they imposed on American workers and their families, when they were undercut out of a job by an illegal. Help them do what????? Undercut more Americans out of work and force them to go to the unemployment line? What is wrong with you? Nobody is questioning whethere they are human or not, but we do question their disregard for the people they hurt when they steal their documents and then their jobs. How human is that???

Maybe the illegal alien should not depend on a man who sleeps around marrying her, and making her a citizen. And maybe the street woman delibertly chose some poor man to take advantage of him, thinking marrying an American would make her a citizen. It won't. Go home now.

There are no valid excuses for foreigners to come to this country illegally, and expect to get the same rights our people have fought, and died for for over 200 years.

It isn't about the reality of love and hardship.

It's about the reality of legal versus illegal.

If ILLEGAL ALIENS didn't think only of themselves they wouldn't sneak into another country to steal jobs and identities.

Immigration laws are for the COUNTRY and NOT for the people who think they need 'special treatment' because they managed to SNEAK INTO the country and reproduce before getting caught!

As a citizen of the United States, I am prohibitted from harboring a fugitive from the law.

Anyone who harbors a fugitive is as guilty as the one who broke the law and can also be incarcerated.

If you want to take that risk, go ahead.

You pro ILLEGAL ALIEN advocates are all the same. Try to get the concept that it isn't about judging and hating. It's about obeying the laws of this country.

Do you think a poor person ought to be able to rob a bank and keep the money just because s/he is poor?

Do you think a homeless person should be allowed to move into your house and stay there just because s/he is homeless?

Why do you think an entire nation should change their laws to accomodate millions of lawbreakers just because they want you to?

You are a joke!

I agree.

When the agriculture industry started letting Americans go to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS (at below legal wages) the price of fruits and vegetables didn't drop.

So who made a profit?

It was the growers of course.
