Wow OKS... now you're generalizing.. I'll rephrase your statement... "As are murderers, rapists, drug dealers and pedophiles..."
There are different degrees of laws in this country.
Then there are felonies... This includes murder, rape, incest, tax evasion, fraud, grand theft auto, possession with the intent to distribute and yes entering the country illegally..
They are here illegally. Plain and simple.
No different then the guy that robs someone for an income.
All other cultures have learned and speak our language except for many of the spanish speaking people. We are in many cases forced to speak 'their' language.
Because the illegals have driven those wages down to the point that Americans cannot afford to do those jobs.
They are the aftermath of Criminal activity.
Just because they had no choice when their parents crossed over ILLEGALLY, does not mean they are free to stay here. If they are here ILLEGALLY, then they are here ILLEGALLY.
The sad part is.. my comparison was closer as they along with illegal immigration are all felony offenses.
Fill out the forms, send in the application, get approved and come live in our great nation
That's free market capitalism for you.
Go find me the law that says it is a felony...you won't find it...because it isn't there.
Each year the Border Patrol is making more than a million apprehensions of people who flagrantly violate our nation's laws by unlawfully crossing U.S. borders to work and to receive publicly-funded services, often with the aid of fraudulent documents. Such entry is a misdemeanor and, if repeated, becomes punishable as a felony.
Outkast, Answer me this one simple question. Do you think you can illegally enter another country and work and that they will have no problem with it? Do you think that our laws are stricter than most countries regarding immigration? Answer honestly and I have not even done any research on this subject.

I travel all over the world, and there are very few Americans traveling. WE HAVE NO TIME OFF. The word on the streets in other countries of why there are no traveling Americans is this:
"Americans are home working."
No I have never broken a US Law! I have never been arrested! But you know as well as I that just because everyone is doing it, doesn't make it right.
Giving illegals free passes that no other country in their right mind would do.
In the middle east they chop off your hands if you take an apple from a fruit cart. I much prefer that system of punishment.
If they are coming here to feed their families and not bringing their families here. They are not contributing to the US economy. They are stealing! Another crime!
I would say risking your life to cross a desert, risking deportation at anytime, living in sub-par conditions, getting paid less than others doing the same job are all examples of "earning" it.

It's quite sad that many members on here want the U.S. to adopt the same barbaric policies of 3rd world countries.
