    I think it is a good thing that we are getting better at keeping people from infiltrating our country illegally.

    I thought it was because there were more jobs in Mexico now, but have it your way. I don't think of desperate, hard-working people as being "infiltrators."

    It's all part of their secret plan to come into America and engage in difficult, painful, unwanted jobs for low pay and no benefits, while being exposed to danger and abuse at every turn.

    Sneaky devils!

    My mom’s grandpa came illegally from Germany in the 1800’s because he was starving in the German army, had no shoes even though it was winter, etc. People get desperate. For once I totally agree with Bae!

    Breaking the law because youíre desperate is still breaking the law, and should attract the attention of law enforcement.

    Even if you feel really really bad about it.

    People living under threats to life and limb, imminent starvation, oppression, etc. need to weigh the rewards against the risks, of course.

    Funny how many Americans pick and choose which laws to obey--railing against unlawful immigration (a federal misdemeanor) while looking the other way when people commit tax fraud, flaut environmental and labor laws...It's almost like there's a tacit double standard.

    You totally disagree that the law should be enforced equally for everybody?

    Forgery and fraud arenít misdemeanors. Living and working illegally in this country for extended periods would usually require some of both.

    I donít remember railing against illegal immigration. Iím against a lot of things I donít rail about. Nor can I recall approving the other crimes you mention. For the record, Iím against breaking those laws too.

    I totally disagree that law enforcement needs to be involved for someone here illegally. I would not turn someone in.
