Something has to be done: ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL

Someone posted this as an answer to a question - I thought it was so true I had to repost it:

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??

Why is it OK to look the other way when illegal immigrants disobey the law, but it's OK to nail little old ladies for making minor mistakes on their taxes?? If you are knowingly breaking the law shouldn't there be consequences?? Why can’t they be required to obey our laws just like everyone else – why are they above the law??

  • Agree! This is the point we have been trying to make. People just keep on talking about this being a nation of immigrants. Who cares? We have these little things called LAWS. If the citizens have to follow them or pay the consequences, so must the law breakers. We have proper channels to follow now and if you don't follow them, you're breaking the laws. They know when they cross that border that they are breaking our laws.

  • Maybe if it were easier for them to become legal then we wouldn't even have the problem.

  • This is not some "silly" law. There isn't a country out there who doesn't have a similar law(they enforce it too) do believe Obama and this administration for the most part love that this law is being broken. I think it's just not something they really want to deal with and they would love to somehow get all of those people to be voting Americans. This law will go into effect and the police will be allowed to ask for the papers of those arrested as always. The part she blocked says police MUST ask for document if deemed necessary. So they are not going to be required to ask but they can still ask just as the federal law says they can.

  • btw - Arizona's got it right... they just want to do what the Federal government is refusing to do... enforce the laws.

  • I could go on for DAYS, and no one can sway me with their boohoo PC BS. Illegals are of no benefit to this country...they drain our economy, raise crime statistics, and burden our society. Let American citizens do all that nonsense...@ some point they've @ least paid taxes!
    -Ok, I'm done.
