Immigration, Man

As so many people have summed up - most Americans are against illegal immigration. They are not against imigrants or imigration in general.

Imigrants come here legally, work hard, and willingly assimilate into our society.

Using fancy language to make people who are here in violation of law is intentionally misleading.

It does not matter what the motives are. It does not matter who benefits and who doesn't or how. This is about following the rules, and coming here because you want to be one of us. Imagine this argument in a murder trial: "But I was only looking for opportunity! I'm the real victim." (Sadly, we're getting close to the point where that argument might work.)

I have no problem with immigrants. Congress & the President and other politicians need to find their cajones and deal with it.
