Empathy is a good thing.
straw man. Stealing is stealing, these people are stealing.
I happen to agree with those who stated that Human is more important than Money.
Um, I would never be dumb enough to immigrate to this country for starters. But if I did illegally come here, yes I’d take advantage of the loopholes.
If you were an illegal immigrant I think you'd take advantage of these loopholes too,
or would you pass up on the free education for your children?
nope, I’d teach them myself.
You'd deny them an education here and send them back to your country of origin to go to school there?
I’m suggesting that most are not interested in paying property taxes ever, regardless as to whether or not they could afford them.
Or do you suggest that illegal immigrants can afford to pay property taxes that pay for schools?
I would never go to the United States in the first place.
Again, put yourself in their shoes, if you were an illegal would you see any incentive for getting legal status?
I never said that none of them want to be citizens. I said most of them.
Saying that none of them want to become legal citizens is a bit of a stereotype isn't it?
I just told you that my family offered to sponsor illegal immigrants and they all denied our sponsorship because they wanted to remain illegal. That is not the extent of my experience with these illegal immigrants. Don’t get me started.
I'm aware that some of them would rather stay illegal but I doubt you've spoken to every single illegal immigrant and asked them all...
Yes it is illegal... and no they shouldn't all be allowed to stick around sapping off the system but we can't go about dealing with them like they are nothing but a financial issue.
These are people we're dealing with, and any solution to be found needs to think of both them and us. Just because they aren't citizens here doesn't mean they don't have inalienable human rights or shouldn't be treated fairly. Once again, empathy

Oh and an illegal alien is not just some race other than white or native American, that term means an illegal entry into the US without following the rules and it doesnt matter where in the hell you were born. Follow the rules and you are welcome to come to America.
