Skip to comments.[Vanity] - Why is Illegal Immigration Wrong?

I live in San Francisco, and I think you all know what that implies. I am a dyed-in-the-wool liberal and nearly everyone I interact with daily is as well. I read Free Republic most days to try to understand why Obamacare is so hated, and why the Ground Zero Mosque is taking such flak. And to be honest, I understand most of the viewpoints here. I don't agree, but I understand. The only one I don't understand is the very, very strong opposition to illegal immigration. Is it strictly a legal opposition? Workers that flaunt our laws at the border are likely to flaunt others? Or are there other reasons? I promise not to post again... so the zotting is a foregone response. I am just very interested in exactly why you feel that illegal immigration is so wrong.
In before whatever ....
Gee, I don’t know. Do you like uninvited people walking into your home all hours of the day and night stealing your money, eating your food, and telling you how you need to accommodate them and make them permanent members of your household?
BTW in before the zot..
What part of ILLEGAL is so difficult for you, dear?
What makes them workers as opposed to drug mules, prostitutes and people looking for foodstamps?
If you actually read FR you would know why. See ya!
Cue the kitties!
HOW the heck can anyone need this explained to them?
Breaking the law I suppose.
It is against the law..we are a nationof laws...
Illegal immigrants depress wages. For instance, meat packing and chicken processing used to be done for good wages by union labor. Not no more. Across the country construction work, yard maintenance, pool cleaning, hotels/hospitality, office cleaning, restaurant work, fast food and on and on is now done for artificially low wages by illegal aliens. The Americans who used to do those jobs no longer do so. Indeed, in some instances, they don’t dare.
If you honestly want to know, enter Mexico illegally; demand benefits. The authorities there will explain it graphic detail.
You are running out of water in California. Did you ever ask yourself why?
Why can’t I walk into Mexico and demand all sorts of rights, demand that they print everything in English, demand that they give me food stamps and subsidized housing and free medical care? They would shoot me, that’s why.
Illegal aliens consume public services. They qualify for all manner of free stuff at our expense. WIC, Section 8 housing, food stamps, all manner of government benefits that WE have to pay for.
Well you made a start by aknowledging it is illegal.But you are really just interested in gettin some good juicy backfeed.Maybe some other troll will provide that??
