    No they don't. They know they are supposed to go through certain channels, they just chose not to just as people chose to break the law everyday. And if you believe that the freedom of man is a universal principle, then you certainly should not look to exclude people. What does the Declaration of Independence say:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    Another Civil War poll.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Wrong. I've seen several Hispanic spokesmen on Fox argue that the Declaration of Independence gives ALL people the NATURAL RIGHT to come to America, to stay in America, once here, no matter how they got here, and be American. These spokesmen made it very clear they were defending the millions of illegals who are already here. The Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution DO NOT apply to everyone under the sun.

    Our founding documents CAN be interpreted that way. Think about it........

    Not that what you are saying here addresses the point I made, but when and where did slavery ever die a "natural" death?

    Looking at the pole the South is taking a beating, as it should.

    Forgive me if I did not want to let my people suffer even 1 sec longer in bondage for it to suffer a "natural death." You mite as well say when the white man got tired of it and did not needs slaves anymore.

    The South got exactly what it deserved.

    Blacks suffered more after the war, than before it. In the South, free blacks had the right to vote. After the war, that right was stripped.
