    Lets see, there are around 7 Billion people in the world. Somewhere around a Billion, maybe a billion and a half, don't live in abject poverty. So, about 5.5 Billion or more live in conditions that would make what the poor and welfare recipients in the US live in look like a middle to upper middle class life style. Sorry, but we cannot take in all 5.5 Billion of them, where would we put them?

    This is Unconstitutional! What part of "shall not be infringed" do you not understand?

Shooting unarmed guys in the back of a pick up truck is just poor form. There is a bit of a difference.
    That's all nice to say, but that's not what happened here -

    A Texas state trooper who fired on a pickup truck from a helicopter and killed two illegal immigrants during a chase through the desert was trying to disable the vehicle and suspected it was being used to smuggle drugs, authorities said Friday.

    The disclosure came a day after the incident that left two Guatemalan nationals dead on an isolated gravel road near the town of La Joya, just north of the Mexico border.

    State game wardens were the first to encounter the truck Thursday. After the driver refused to stop, they radioed for help and state police responded, according to Parks and Wildlife Department spokesman Mike Cox.

    When the helicopter with a sharpshooter arrived, officers concluded that the truck appeared to be carrying a "typical covered drug load" on its bed and was travelling at reckless speeds, police said.

    After the shots were fired and the truck's tires blown out, the driver lost control and crashed into a ditch. State police said a preliminary investigation revealed that the shots fired from the helicopter struck the vehicle's occupants.

    Eight people who were in the truck were arrested. At least seven of them were also from Guatemala. No drugs were found.
    The police weren't shooting at the people for one. Another thing, that truck could have been carrying anything from drugs to arms that makes these smugglers dangerous people.

    The truth too much for you sport?
    That would be truther conspiracy theories, sport.
    There's nothing theoretical about the picture presented in the preview above. Did you even look at it? Answers.com has a good explanation of the types of jobs illegal immigrants take and why as well:
    US Illegal Immigration Explained - Profits and Poverty, Social Security and Starvation

    Also, in case you'd like to see a documentary instead of a fictional narrative based on truths, speaking of the brutal conditions illegal immigrants must face just to become an illegal immigrant, I recommend you watch the following video of a man who actually decided to weather it all with 4 immigrants making the crossing:

    Reported, that's clearly a Rule 18 violation.
