    One thing for sure: we have too many illegals already.
    And you won't be able to get rid of them, at the point

    That's correct.

    But, as I said, maybe we can make things better.

    Inflicting misery upon other people never makes things better, my friend, sorry.

    No way to improve things without ruffling a few feathers.

    They should come here legally.

    Legal immigrants are ALWAYS welcome...
    Thanks from The Man

    I don't disagree.

    But, when you have some countries substantially better off, economically, than others, whether it be the US, Canada, Europe; even Russia vs. the -stans in Central Asia; you will always have folks from the poorer countries trying to get into the wealthier ones, any way they can. That's just the way of humanity...

    Hell, Central Asia...

    There is now apparently a Nigerian, visiting for the World Cup, who is requesting political asylum in Russia: Nigerian Fan Requests Asylum in Russia

    There is no solution other than accepting every soul who has been here for a significant period of time, who has committed no crime other than illegal entry, and has made a good-faith effort to comply with all societal and legal expectations other than those which would involve outing themselves for deportation.

    Talking about future illegals without coming to grips with this is a waste of time.
    Thanks from The Man

    Indeed. But, that takes kindness and compassion. Someone who supports a guy like Trump ain't gonna have much of those qualities...
