Empathy is a good thing.
You’re insinuating that I am not an empathic person. Your assumption is incorrect.
I happen to agree with those who stated that Human is more important than Money.
straw man. Stealing is stealing, these people are
If you were an illegal immigrant I think you'd take advantage of these loopholes too,
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.
or would you pass up on the free education for your children?
I’d educate my children myself. I would never send them to a school.
You'd deny them an education here and send them back to your country of origin to go to school there?
nope, I’d teach them myself.
Or do you suggest that illegal immigrants can afford to pay property taxes that pay for schools?
I’m suggesting that most are not
interested in paying property taxes ever, regardless as to whether or not they could afford them.
Again, put yourself in their shoes, if you were an illegal would you see any incentive for getting legal status?
I would never go to
the United States in the first place.
Saying that none of them want to become legal citizens is a bit of a stereotype isn't it?
I never said that none of them want to be
citizens. I said most of them.
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...
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.
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
A solution to someone stealing from you?
Lots of things come to mind.
Sorry, but no one has the right to steal.
Your logic is flawed.
If they were being treated fairly they’d all be in prison, like I would be if I didn’t pay my taxes.
Being able to relate with someone, feel sympathy and understand them doesn’t mean you excuse them of wrong doing. Accusing me of not being empathic
for telling you how it is, is laughable.
