All countries have borders and laws against crossing them for the saftey of their people, not just America.
Yes, people all over the world are willing to trade freedom for security. Everybody doing it doesn't change what it is.
We have people coming through the proper channels and it is a slap in the face to them for us to cater to illegals while they have been waiting
Maybe to some but, there are those who realize that for some a legal route is not available. Why take offense for something which isn't affecting
your place in line?
First let me just say that I wish that everyone, no matter who they are or where they are from deserve a decent life. People come here for a better
life, but we have poor and hungry American citizens right here who do not have the quality of life that they should. There are millions of jobless
citizens who desperately need to care for their families and need jobs, while illegals are working in many areas of the workforce. Can you understand
that and my position against illegal immigration?
As for open borders, If you allow just anyone to come in, you have to realize that it includes murderers, pedophiles, gangs, thieves etc. How could
anyone want that? We have enough criminals we certaintly don't need any more. To invite such people into our country is insane.
Have you ever had a child raped by an illegal? Have you ever lost a wife, husband or loved one because of an illegal? Many, many people have and it
was because of an illegal. Sometimes these illegals already had previous arrests and deportations and came right back to do more damage. I just don't
get how you can't understand this.
You saked, "Why take offense for something which isn't affecting your place in line?" There are those who are waiting in line to come here, work
here and live here. Illegals skipped to the head of the line and are already here working and living. Of course they would take offense to that. Some
have wives and children who have been waiting to come here to be with their Husband/father. These people have been very patient.
As for those who cannot afford to come here legally. keep in mind how many poor citizens can't even afford to move out of dangerous neighborhoods in
their own country. It is sad and frustrating for sure. There are people from all over the world wishing for a better life. Sadly, we cannot save them
