Why's the title wrong? Well, this is the Redlands Daily Facts we're talking about. With them, equal chance the article is wrong and the title is right. Or most likely both wrong.  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #2)

Humans have roamed the earth for millenia trying to better their situation. People will always move toward where things are better and away from where it's worse. It's as simple as that. Hating illegal immigrants for doing something you yourself would do if you were in their situation is wasted energy at best, hypocrisy at worst. If you were born in the US, you basically won the lottery. You benefit from all the good this country spent hundreds of years building through no extra effort of your own. And now you want to close the door now that you're in. Border fences and deportations can never stop it. It's like water. It will always flow where gravity and pressure push it. The only solution to illegal immigration from country X is when the ability to survive and thrive in country X is better than in the US. As for immigrants, reality check for you. An unlimited open door and blanket amnesty for anyone who enters will obviously and quickly destroy what we have here. In order to maintain this society, immigration must be open yet controlled. If you want to be an American, come here and become one. Contribute to and become part of this great country. But get in line and do it right like I did (from The Netherlands). If you don't then you've shown that you care more about yourself than you do about America. In which case you cannot expect those who follow the rules to want you here. But like Adam said above, you can use powerful words like "haters" and "persecute " to make yourself feel better about doing something you know is wrong. Criminals can always make themselves feel better by making themselves believe they are the victim.  (Nov 15, 2009 | post #4)
