    They should be afforded no rights. Oh, we shouldn't treat them cruelly, but there should be no rights attached to their illegal endeavor. Our rights to preserve our nation against invasion should be paramount.

    I have not thought about this before. Should citizenship or legal immigration be like common law marriage? after so long...

    The right to vote with ones feet is sacrosanct. Nothing supersedes this.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.

    They can have basic rights of privacy and representation but not a right to work for pay, own property, avail themselves of public services or remain in the country.

    That's entirely untrue. If it were the case there would have been no Civil War and there would be a CSA today.

    By law they do, so I dont see the point of the poll.

    Can you specify which rights? Right to be treated fairly as per the Constitution if accused of a crime? Right to receive public aid if otherwise not committing a crime? It's unfair to ask such a vague question then watch everybody twist in the wind trying to guess what you meant.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Everyone has a right to own property in the US, even non-residents. The US is the worlds premier asset haven, so foreigners from all over buy property. As far as work goes, seems like you'd be violating a citizens right to free association. What gives you the right to tell business owners who they can hire, or landlords who they can rent to?

    So when the BOR refers to "the people", it means "the people of the world"?
