    I would like to pose a question to those who think that we should just bend over backwards for those entering the country illegally. Let suppost that you come home from work and find someone who has broken into your house illegally. They announce that they are going to live there, eat and sleep there and you are to pay for it. They want the big bedroom upstairs..

    This is not difference than breaking into our country. I bet that you would throw them out, call the police and scream bloody murder till they were gone. It is the same thing only it is personal.

    What do you think?

    Your analogy don't wash. What really happens is that a segment of America INVITES the foreigner into America. Then, once here, the people WILLINGLY buy, sell and otherwise do business with the foreigner.

    Since we do not have a Guest Worker program for the workers in non-agricultural capacities, there is no proper "in," therefore; many people come here without papers. It's impossible to make a case that the practice is illegal since it is not. The law calls it improper entry, but the bottom line is: for many purposes, there is no "proper" way to enter this country for the fact situation most foreigners find themselves in.

    Since Americans are inviting people here with offers of jobs, homes and available credit, it is wholly dishonest to liken immigration to a thief being in your house. It's more like some of the tenants in your home are inviting others to come in. There is nothing you can do about it... logically. Any step you take against the foreigner will be used against you tenfold.

    That is nonsense. Lots of people immigrate to the US legally every year. And those who immigrate illegally were not "invited".

    Stop giving them jobs and stop their ability to make money and they will leave.

    Its not the same thing. No one is forcing you to share your home with an immigrant.

    "He that answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him." (Proverbs 18 : 13

    While it is true that a lot of people emigrate to the United States properly (it is not a legal v. illegal issue), we do not have a Guest Worker status and the visa system simply does not anticipate the valid reasons that Guest Workers come to the United States.

    There are visas for students, white collar workers, family visas, agricultural workers, etc. we simply do not have a credible visa for temporary Guest Workers.

    If you want to talk nonsense, the standard anti - immigrant line is that foreigners are stealing (sic) American jobs while somehow waiting in welfare lines all day and allegedly getting "free" medical care at night by hanging out in emergency rooms at hospitals. It's quite a feat for these people to be in two places at the same time (a welfare line AND on a "stolen" job), but what is really nonsensical is that those same anti - immigrants only see citizenship as a way to enter the United States.

    If those people do only HALF of what the anti - immigrant alleges, why in the Hell would you want them as citizens?
