Why are so many people sympathetic towards illegal aliens?

I don't get it. Do you feel sympathetic towards people who commit other crimes? Do you feel sorry for drug users/dealers, thieves, murderers, drunk drivers,people who commit fraud, harass others, etc.? If not, then why do you have no problem with people breaking the law by coming into our country illegally? Please don't give the excuse of how it isn't a "violent crime" bc many illegal aliens DO commit violent crimes. Also, there are many crimes that aren't necessarily "violent" that everyone has a problem with. It has nothing to do with racism either, it has to do with the LAW and how it's being broken.

  • No we shouldn't be like anyone else; we should be ourselves. What we should do is secure our country and that includes our economy. We are the only place that has give amnesty as many times as we have. We're the only place that keeps saying 'oh well we know you came here illegally but well we'll cut you a break'. We don't incarcerate illegal immigrants we deport them. Other countries; MX and Netherlands for example; want you incarcerated for up to 2 years!! But our system is just too harsh!

    What reality do you live in; because it doesn't sound like the one the rest of us do.

  • I dont feel sorry for them at all!! I didnt even think there were people who do. They come here illegaly commit, other crimes while they are here, take jobs that americans should have, ect. They should be kicked out of this country. I would say like anyone else who breaks the law they should go to jail but then we would be feeding them, so no they need to go back to where ever the hell they came from. And just a side note... IT REALLY PISSES ME OFF THAT I HAVE TO PRESS 1 FOR ENGLISH! THIS IS AMERICA WE SPEAK ENGLISH IF YOU DONT KNWO HOW TO SPEAK IT GET THE HELL OUT!

  • i think it is a race issue because all they have to do is apply for a visa and then they can come over here legally if they want to...so whats the big deal?

    I've seen it so often! Even a lot of my friends on Facebook are talking about how sad it is that they have to be deported, and so on and so on.
