    Who supports illegal immigration?

    Please note we are not talking about asylum seekers, refugees, victims of human trafficking or regular or investment or skilled immigration seekers. We are not talking students or visitors.

    Just: Who supports illegal immigrants. (also we are not talking support like charitable humanitarian aid) Strictly who supports breaking the law for people to get into a country. Anyone?

    Who does that?  I do not know anyone who would want to break the law.  In the early 20th century, America didn't relate to immigration as illegal, the economy was growing because of mass production, jobs were plenteous, town and cities form republics.  Many different nationalities came to America for a new way of living and many were quite successful.  Back then from reading about history, I never heard this as illegal immigration, just immigration.  If illegal immigrants are coming into this country it is probably family already here, poverty in their own country with a chance to do better in the U.S, or a promise that if crossing the border and succeeding, there is some compensation.  Only an opinion.

    I live near the border and of course don't support illegal immigration.

    With that said, if my family were starving and I knew there was work available in Mexico I would be on my way.  This is not a simple question by any means.

    Sadly, Mexico is not doing anything at all to make life better for their own citizens.  The abject poverty in that country is horrible to see.

    Not all citizens of Mexico and Central America are Cartel members or gang members, they just want to work.

    I would guess to answer your question I would have to say our own Government supports illegal immigration.  Regardless of what they tell us, their lack of action speaks louder.  The Border Patrol is doing the best they can but are getting no help.

    Perhaps this flood of illegals will stop while Washington is on their 5 week vacation?

    People who are looking for someone to labor around their house.
    If there was not jobs for immigrants, they would not be there.

      This question could also be "Who supports Colombian drug cartels?" Who allows them to have millions of dollars to break laws so flagrantly?

      Many of the illegals looking for work in this country have something that is sadly lacking in many of today's youth.  They still believe in a fair days work for a fair days pay.  They will take jobs most of our youth would not even consider.

    I think the most important word in this question to be "illegal." I do not think anyone supports illegal immigration. I support that of giving those a hand up who need charity. Saying that.. there must be a safe way to introduce them into the country. Such as diseases they may carry, drugs, and so on.

    What a world we live in where a man is told where he can go, & told where he can't go etc..The last i heard nobody owns planet earth, but there are some insane people that think they do..I was born into some ridiculous game/system where apparently i have to slave my guts out for 40 years, to buy a piece of land back just before i pop my clogs!lol..I have to build their yachts & palaces & spaceships battleships etc, while they laugh at us from their castles & palaces..It's governments & their insane passion for war games & space games, & the brainwashed masses that play along with them as pieces to push about..That makes illegal immigrants do what they have to do, which is leave everything behind..There but for the grace of circumstances go you or i, so if they've got the get up & go to go for it I say good luck to them. :-)

      Wouldn't it be an interesting world if there were no borders?  One could just follow the sun or pick the climate they liked and move with the change of seasons.  Everyone alive would just be from planet Earth.

      Dave--An interesting thought. I am sure that you will no longer lock your doors and  windows and allow all   who would enter to enter and not call the police when your house is broken into. .

      Dave--Well said from the perspective of a non-achiever. It is always good to have what one has not earned. It is a foundation to build upon. Let others earn  and you get the benefits?

      Well there's only a few things that "have" to be earned in life, & that's things like integrity honour pride morals/standards etc..No amount of money can buy them, & only the individual know's if they really have them or not..Poolman gets it.

    It would seem that the president of The United States supports illegal immigration and many others in government. It would also seem that our government has, essentially, dismissed the Constitution and adopted the United Nations Charter and the Dec on Human Rights as the law of the land. This document is an international treaty and, as has been said, supersedes the Constitution. Illegal immigration is not illegal if you honor another set of rules that says it is legal. It is interesting that this document also redefines marriage and that you have a right to health care, education, unions and that every one has a right to public services and that would include every one.
    I would suggest a  thorough reading if you wish to understand where we are going, as a nation and under what rules we will be living under.By the way all this about volunteering is here, '(1) Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible
    and that you no longer have a right to dissent here." (3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations
    The below link is from the Secretary General of the United Nations speaking to international legal migration.
    http://www.un.org/esa/population/migrat … ay-sge.pdf

    Article 13
    (1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.
    (2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
    Article 14.
    (1) Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.
    (2) This right may not be invoked in the case of prosecutions genuinely arising from non-political crimes or from acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.
    That the Constitution has been destroyed and replaced with a global treaty that embraces a Marxist Socialist agenda and that this was accomplished without a democratic vote only speaks to the totalitarianism of the document. It also speaks to the truth in the quote, "Democracy is the only road to socialism." As it also speaks to the greed of people to have something that they have not earned.
