I wonder if...

... all of these pro-illegal immigration advocates would mind if the illegals they are championing were to come and live in their living rooms. Eating their food, drinking their water, using their utilities, all the rest. No rent, no explanation, maybe chip in the occasional $20 (while sending anything they actually earn back to their families in whichever country they came from)...

They'd be okay with that, right? No choice in the matter, and someone to call them "racist" when they so much as sighed in frustration.

That's what they are demanding of the rest of us, after all.

No one I have ever spoken with on the matter has EVER been for "no immigration at all". Our country was founded on the concept of "Give us your huddled masses, yearning to breath free", and there is room enough for everyone who wants to share in the dream of creating a better future for their kids. But that does not mean we don't have the right - not to mention the duty and responsibility - to make sure we know who is visiting, and who is planning on staying. And the bias of the government MUST be towards those who are living within the rules, with increasing levels of disincentive for those who choose to violate them as a condition of entering.

Just sign the damned guest book on the way in the front door, instead of breaking in through the basement window and leeching off the rest of us. And learn the damned language, just as I would have to do if I were to move to whichever shithole you are deserting.

Calling an illegal immigrant an "undocumented resident" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".
