Is someone who is illegally living in the US in violation of laws?

Why is it ok for them to break laws to come over here, but not ok for me to take a gallon of milk and bread from the local 7-11 because my kids are starving?

Aren't both situations examples of criminal behavior done out of desperation?

  • I dont think they all caome out of sesperation, but because they know they probably won't get caught and the living conditions are better and they can essentially get a free ride off the gov't.

  • if your kids are starving we have something called public assistance which you could apply for unless you are unable to be accepted because you are to wealthy and really you are blowing all of you money on dope and that would be the need for you to steal milk and bread from the 7/11.

  • They think they won't get caught...and if they do, it won't be right away. So they will live off the gov't as long as they can. I've known people who do this and I've even known a few to get deported (thankfully). I was so glad too.

  • Quit having kids you can't afford! Birth control is free if you are poor in this country. It is not in places like Mexico and South America (which most illegals come from).

  • LOL! Birth control is always free! It is called keeping your drawers on!

    LMAO... You haven't traveled much I presume. In male dominant societies, it's a wifely duty, there is no such thing as "keep your drawers on."

    stealing bread and milk is illegal.
    Both are illegal acts.
