That was my answer to Val and his wry observation.
I don't "suggest" that you get "serious crime" with illegal immigration, Fed/State LEO's/Organizations have already established that you do.
No, that is not what I'm saying at all---your mixing 2 different answers/examples to 2 different questions....or perhaps I didn't state one answer strongly enough.
You seem to be consfusing that although any given single person may or may not be a direct danger...ie the guy squatting in your hourse for example----if you expand the numbers to millions
of people your are, by dent of sheer statistical probability, going to get larger numbers of dangerous people.
Its not a question of "disproprtionate threat" that is again, single issue frameing---there are many
problems with unchecked illegal immigration.
Nope, I'm not missing the point at all.......I can both
feel compassion for exploited and abused illegals and still
think they should not be here.
Its really not
an "either/or" position as far as I'm concerned.
I can feel for a persons plight and not want them exploited or abused and still (regretfully) think that they should be deported.
If I may go back to prior example, the same general way that you might want an illegal squatter removed from your home......but you presumably would want them removed as gently as circumstances allow.
You both want them gone and resonably well treated at the same time.
Lets not forget that there are huge numbers of just as needy people that are following the rules and getting here legally.
I'm all ears, the first step would be to get a real handle on just how many illegals we really are dealing with.
