    The Police

    One world is enough
    For all of us
    One world is enough
    For all of us

    It’s a subject we rarely mention
    But when we do we have this little invention
    By pretending they’re a different world from me
    I show my responsibility

    One world is enough
    For all of us
    One world is enough
    For all of us

    The third world breathes our air tomorrow
    We live on the time we borrow
    In our world there’s no time for sorrow
    In their world there is no tomorrow

    One world is enough
    For all of us
    One world is enough
    For all of us

    Lines are drawn upon the world
    Before we get our flags unfurled
    Whichever one we pick
    It’s just a self deluding trick

    One world is enough
    For all of us
    One world is enough
    For all of us

    I don’t want to bring a sour note
    Remember this before you vote
    We can all sink or we all float
    ’cos we’re all in the same big boat

    One world is enough
    For all of us

    It may seem a million miles away
    But it gets a little closer everyday

    One world...

    I think it is. However, I think they should either agree to learn the common language and productively integrate into society within a certain time frame or go back. It sucks for them to come from that situation but they also cannot be allowed to negatively affect their new host country.

    If their new home is gracious enough to allow them in, they should honor that by being good members of that society.

    I cannot find moral fault with someone who must enter illegally in order to feed himself and his family. I would do the same. And provided he is not violating the life, liberty or property of innocent people I take no issue with him being here regardless of legal status. Although he is technically a criminal per the law, I don't personally view it that way.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    I don't fault people for wanting a better life, especially seeking political refuge. However it still isn't exactly okay to violate the sanctity of another country's borders. Understandable? Yes. Forgivable under certain circumstances? Sure. Right?........no.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It is a matter of priorities. I hold my personal and familial survival to be more important than a country's laws.

    Most people do. To an extent that isn't a problem, but when you get an influx of everyone doing that it becomes a strain on another country's resources and political systems and becomes a problem, so it isn't exactly right, although it is understandable.

    I agree. But if the circumstance is so dire that a person has to become a refugee, than there already is a problem.

    That is not the case with the vast, vast majority of people who immigrate illegally. Most of those in that situation do have legal options, but they are not as quick or easy. I would guess that 99 + % of those in this country illegally are here for convenience over necessity for life.

    I believe that is a poor reason to immigrate illegally.
