We all have heard from the political parties the pros and cons of immigration reform. We even have observed recent demonstrations across the country protesting the fact Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration. Some critics are angry the United States of America might protect its own border and even might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, stay indefinitely.
Take it from this prospective: Let's say I break into your house and when you discover me, you insist I leave. But I'll say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes, did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house)."
According to the protesters, you are required to let me remain in your house, add me to your family's insurance plan, educate my children and provide other benefits for me and my family.
If you try to call the police and force me out, I'll call my friends to picket your house with signs proclaiming my right to be there.
It's only fair, after all, because you live in a nicer home than I do and I'm just trying to better myself.
I'll live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of being a cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced and bigoted person.
Oh yeah, I demand you learn my language so you can communicate with me.
Give me a break. Why can't the people see how ridiculous this is?
