    I think we are all pretty much on the same page. At least it seems that way.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If you are entering a country illegally, it is safe to say you are leaving yours illegally. Historical examples show us that mass migrations from one country to another usually happen because the conditions one lives in are not that great. East Germany, North Korea, El Salvador, Haiti, Puerto Rico etc.

    With that said, If my daughter was hungry and I worked like a slave but at the end of the day had no money to feed her properly while next door there were people who refused to get jobs because they didn't pay $15 an hour? Yes - it would more than o.k. to enter a country illegally.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Legal options? Like get one of the very few work visas they give hispanics after waiting forever and having to pay money you don't have? All while trying to figure out how to feed your family in the meantime? That's why I don't mind them coming over. I would too.

    No it's not okay. - Illegally - is the defining word.

    That would be true if legal and moral had any real relationship. But since they don't.....

    Of course this so-called "illegal entry" is OK, IF its done for the warfare of ones family.
    I note that, as usual, I am in the minority.
    Do we need immigration reform ?
    Yes, even the Party of NO agrees here..
    Something should have been done 50 years ago...
    Now, there is no practical recourse other than granting citizenship to at least 90 to 99% of the "illegals".

    It is not OK. It is also not Ok to sneak into the Movies, or under the Circus tent. People need to get in line at the gate, and do things by the numbers. It serves no one, if people cut in line, or sneak over the back fence. Just shows general disrespect, and bad form.

    Because those are stealing. Duh. If people are crossing the border to steal then I oppose it.

    So you are saying that the illegal immigrants here would die if they had not come here? You can show some proof of this claim?

    It's never okay.

    I would only do it if my life was in jeopardy and I had no other option. But I would seek to rectify the "illegal" part immediately. Especially since the US has asylum provisions.
