What do you think?
Is this a serious question?
I think maybe the OP is missing something...call me crazy.
Who the f%$k are you?
Im inclined to believe that we should prohibit illegal immigrants from remaining in America. Yet, I understand the pro-illegal immigrant points. There is the humanitarian argument. If there is an anchor baby, then what is to become of it if we toss its parents out? What about the cheap labor that they provide (keeping produce cheap as a result). They do work for cheap compensation that Americans wont do. There are probably other points too. There is the time, trouble, and cost in shipping them back.
Would anyone play devils advocate and give some reasons why we should allow them to stay.
I am more worried about stopping more from coming than the ones here already. I would gladly give all the ones here Citizenship if we stopped the flow of new ones. From Everywhere. Not just Mexico.
No one really knows how many illegals there are here, but estimates run between 11 and 20 Million. I have no doubt, some can make very compelling arguments for amnesty based on reasonable fears of torture if they are deported, etc.
Well, so mebbe what we need is some sort of ginormous immigration judiciary to hear appeals. And I'd favor sending deportees wherever they want to go...some nations actively recruit immigrants, and mebbe they'll both end up happy.
But for 99% of the illegals, NO. Deport them. We do not reward criminals with citizenship.
Illegals should not be allowed to enter illegally nor should they be allowed to remain here.
If we would go after the people who hire 'em, there wouldn't be any to allow in.
Are you new to the message board?
