What does illegal mean?
If an american does something illegal they get in trouble or go to jail. Why do illegal aliens get benefits and have people fighting to keep them here. Their very name "illegal aliens," says they broke the law. Why are they not prosecuted like real Americans are?
Just asking and not trying to hurt anyone, wondering if I am the only one this bothers.
I agree that this is frustrating.
If a citizen engages in ID theft, they are punished when caught. An illegal alien does it, it is written off. If you're an American who had your ID stolen by one, the IRS won't even help you.
They work under the table in mass, and their children use public healthcare and schools the parents and the children on average will never pay enough in taxes to pay back. So they use more services than average AND are guilty of income tax evasion in most cases. Those working under fake SSN numbers are only committing fraud, while those using someone else's SSN are doing identity theft and tax fraud.
I'd forgive it more if I could ignore tax law when they ignore both tax law and immigration law. But if I did a fraction of that, I'd be in jail.
The illegal aliens and even many legal Mexican immigrants who have wracked up multiple DUIs get off on allegations of ignorance, even after they've killed people in drunk driving accidents. An American has repeated such offenses, they lose their driver's license for life.
If someone has proven they already don't give a flip about immigration laws, they are much more likely to ignore all the others, too. Then you get the illegal immigrants who commit crimes, get deported, come back, and because they aren't arrested for their repeated illegal acts, they commit more crimes than many people who are citizens.
Why aren't they prosecuted? Because big business that funds both parties like the cheap labor that is pliant because of its illegal status. And Democrats support it because these are potential future Democrat voters. After all, if they were going to vote Republican, you know Democrats would slam the border shut.
So....I know a lot of people who work with social services and the police. I also live near an area with a pretty high Hispanic population. So I've heard tell quite a bit about what happens when 'illegal immigrants' try to get social services....they don't. They often get turned away, because you need a ridiculous amount of paperwork and proof of U.S. identity/social security #, etc. A lot of them are trying to apply for citizenship (because that process is actually really easy and cheap), but they get shuffled around between Social Services and the civil court systems because no one wants to deal with 'em.
Cops are especially cruel to immigrant populations - there are more Hispanic/Latino and Black men or women in prison than any other ethnic group. And they often end up there for non-violent crimes that a white person would merely be fined for.
When it comes to who is an illegal alien - I could say that EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING that came to America before the 1900's was an illegal alien because this nation already belonged to the Native Americans and no one seems to care at all that we just swiped that land our from under them after a nasty bout of genocide.

My opinion is no, we should not.The problems of failed or "third world" countries have resulted in millions of people fleeing those countries to steal the better life the people of other non third world countries have. The United States is one of those countries. We have allowed these...

I cannot find a group that supports illegal immigration. Yet we cannot stop it. Now that is pathetic. So we must conclude that without saying it, some - many in America support it and do what they can to stop control of it. It would seem that this should be a target for midterm elections. Who does...
