@inc4t When a guy steals a car or robs a bank and is sent to jail, no one worries about whether or not he has a family. He made a bad choice. He broke the law. He got caught.
What's the difference when an alien illegally crosses the border and gets deported? He made a bad choice. He broke the law. He got caught. Breaking the law has its consequences.
@inc4t I wouldn't have a problem with it. I don't believe
its humane for them to live in the shadows in the US where they are
no better off than slaves.
If they are here illegally, they are criminals. They made a
bad decision. They broke the law. They got caught.
They should face the consequences of their actions. I don't see
it any different than a bank robber or a carjacker. The only
difference is in how we prioritize the crimes. Solving violent
crimes should be our highest priority. Deporting criminal
aliens should be a priority. Deporting illegals who are guilty
of no other crime should be a low priority. When, and indeed
if, we ever stem the flow of illegals coming from our southern
border, only then can we consider a different approach.
The real problem is that Hispanics are not assimilating, they are
creating a borderland (like the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, the
Balkans) in our southern states. Borderlands are never good things.
Right now, people of Mexican origin make up 40% or more of the
population in about ¼ of the territory Mexico lost in the
Mexican-American War. If this is allowed to continue,
Mexican-backed candidates will make up an increasingly powerful
political bloc in the south-western states. These politicians will
have divided loyalties between the US, whose interests they are
supposed to represent, and Mexico, who helped bring them to power.
At the rate things are going, in 50 to 100 years, California,
Arazona, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas… will be more Mexican than
