Legal, vs illegal? Are we the only ones that have a crisis of conscience over it?
If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.
If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot.
If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed.
If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again.
If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.
If you cross the Mexican borders illegaly you will jailed for two years.
If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political prison to rot.
Just to name a few...

stacymomof2 the question was how do other countries deal with immigration.... I was answering that... no where did I say we should emulate them.
But, we do have to do something. Personally I have no problems with immigrants.... it's when they are ILLEGAL I have an issue. Why do we, legal citizens, have to obey all the laws but ILLEGAL immigrants don't have to follow immigration laws?? Wouldn't it be nice if we could pick an choose the laws we want to obey as well.

Probably, Do we want to be other countries?
Aren't we supposed to be that "beacon"?
It was my understanding that we were leaders...

Also, in my criminal justice class we were learning about some other countries' laws. In Singapore, you can be fined up to $1000 if you do not flush a public bathroom. You will be executed if you bring drugs into their country. I was curious about their illegal immigration so I looked it up and here is what I found- If convicted, they can be jailed up to 6 months, liable to caning, or fined up to $6,000.

No, we are not. When I lived in Germany from 2002-2005, there was a big influx of immigrants from Turkey. A lot of them caused crime in the cities late at night. Most were on some sort of student visas but because of the problems that they were having, Germany was considering tightening the requirements for the visas. Not sure if they did do anything or not, but since many other countries citizen's can stay/live in Germany for 90 days it is hard to deal with the ones that were there "illegally"- meaning that they had been there fore more than 30 days.
