"Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if
you disagree with someone"s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don"t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate."
- Rick Warren
We can stick to our convictions by restricting the border to only allow Legal Immigration, and yet be compassionate to them by sending some aid with those sent back to _______ home country, and by assimilating those immigrants already in the US by necessitating their acquisition of US Citizenship.

Foreign children who have traveled miles and miles: to plead for their chance at a new life in America, with opportunities and privileges that are only available here... just to be turned down by armed guards. I believe that The Obama administration should embrace immigrants- instead of turning them away. We have no choice for our place of birth. Whether it is in a protected neighborhood where we can freely express ourselves, and have a bounty of choices in life, or a run-down village where we have no options other than to continue the impoverished lives of our parents- America should encourage the children attempting to change their future and aspire to achieve greatness. In 2012, 41 million immigrants resided in the U.S! 41 million people who took the leap and moved to America: to live out the American Dream.

I completely agree.
The United States of America is the land of the free and we should welcome anyone who wants to live with a higher quality of life and follow the american dream.

BUT, the debate is not about what America stands for, or what the living conditions of foreigners are, or how far they traveled to get here. It's about whether or not we should do anything about ILLEGAL immigration.
I think that we should beef up border security in order to catch immigrants with criminal intentions and to help those who wish to be americans, to do so legally.

If we simply allow them to enter the country without gaining citizenship, then they are not paying taxes to support the country that protects them, and they do not have the right to vote.
We need to fix this issue for their sake as well as ours.
