I'm tired of self-righteous American citizens who disparage illegal immigrants because they have broken the law. Many have done so because their lives were threatened by gangs, drug dealers, corrupt police...their lives a living hell of destitution, of hunger, of illness, of inadequate healthcare. The vast majority of illegal immigrants risk crossing into the US to work hard, frequently to do work that Americans will not do. Their reasons for breaking immigration law are most of the time substantial...the need to survive and flourish...the need for economic and physical sanctuary/security. These are honorable motivations. They are motivations that have driven people to migrate throughout the span of history.
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..."
On the other hand, Americans break our laws regularly for self-indulgent selfish reasons. Driving under the influence being highway "terrorists", cheating on their taxes, speeding on our roads without the slightest consideration of the speed limits, not obeying traffic control devices and many more ways.
So I believe that individuals who risk breaking immigration laws to better their lives, the lives of their children and the lives of their families are of greater moral character then those who claim to respect the rule of law but egotistically, self-servingly break it.
The American Eagle is sick!
