Illegals are getting free benefits such as education and health care yet law-abiding Americans do not, and they're paying it through OUR tax dollars. Illegals are simnply taking advantage of our awful immigration system, and bringing crime and murders into the country. It is getting out of hand. I ask that Varrack not accept this debate, as I could message you separately about it.

yes this may be true but are you thinking about the children running from wars and terrorist attacks to come somewhere safe are you really that heartless i mean the reason we are a country is because we wanted to be free and get away from a bad government that's what these people are doing. they are not bringing crime and murder here it was already happening .its not a disease its choice any human being can commit a crime. if you are upset about this why don't you leave to where they came from and then you will see why they are coming here and why hey have to come illegally . i understand your anger with them getting free treatment but maybe you should stop and realize that they are human and they are struggling after awhile they should not get any more help it should be required that they get a job and have income after awhile or else they will not be taken care of and no longer have our support. but still i think its a bit ridiculous that they are even considered illegal this is a free country and everyone should be welcome because we do not own the earth and people can come and go as they please.

You said children run from terrorist attacks and wars in other countries. I believe they can come here if their country is in a dangerous situation temporarily. However, after their situation is figured out, then should go back to the their home country. They are actually bringing crime and murder here and I could give you several examples of people getting killed by illegals. Regardless of what the rate of crime is, it is one they should not have committed in the first place because they knowingly crossed the border illegally. We should provide any help to illegal immigrants. If they want to have a better life in America then they should come through the right way. Actually, people can not come and go as the please. Of course we do not rule the earth. The United States is a country of laws, and Illegals taking jobs away from Americans is part of the reason we have the law. Every other country in the world has a wall, and they are a country of laws as well. That does not mean anybody can come and go as they please and does not mean they rule the earth. If someone wants to go in a country, they should do it the right way.

what i was meaning to say is if they're homes wee destroyed by terrorists this is the only place they have to go Immigration to the United States on a temporary or permanent basis is generally limited to three different routes: employment, family reunification, or humanitarian protection. While the U.S. immigration system is generous, each of these possibilities is highly regulated and subject to numerical limitations and eligibility requirements. Most unauthorized immigrants do not have the necessary family or employment relationships and often cannot access humanitarian protection, such as refugee or asylum status.

OK, can you give me any statistical percentage of illegals that are in that situation? Also, since this is most likely a very small percentage, talk about the main portion of illegals who come here because they want a better life or overstay their VISA's purposely. This is what I was arguing for in the first place, but you sidetracked the conversation.
