Comments: Bro. Paratrooper,
I think you have it all wrong, you may not, but that is what I think.
There is nothing cirminal in trying to provide a better life for your family. They are working HARD for what little they get. Granted, there are some that are criminals because they break more serious civil laws like stealing, and things of that sort. I agree, these ones should be punished, but that applies for both legal or non.
Some of us that were lucky enough to be born to a family on this side of the border think that we own this place, but we don't. It really belongs to Heavenly Father, he has set it apart since long, long time ago for His purpose. If He guides and permits anybody to this great land, who are we to dispute that? Who are we to argue with Heavenly Father if he needs one of them to serve a mission? serve as a Bishop? . . .
How would you feel if you were one of them? Honestly. Would you have seeked the US for a better lifestyle for your family? or would you just sit there? I'd be here in a heartbeat. You see, . . . Sometimes one has to break a lesser rule to comply with a higher one, remember Adam and Eve?
I disagree with your comment about them taking our jobs away. Do you dig with a shovel every day at a temperature of 20F, 115F? I don't. Most of them do, for a minimum wage.
They support our economy, not free riders of our system. Some don't pay income tax, because we don't give them a SS#, some even pay them anyway. When they can afford it, one of the first things they do is to get their legal status. Can't do it before because they can't afford it, remember? that's the reason they come here, to better themselves.
Nothing against your person, just expressing a different opinion than yours.
