ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Illegal aliens are not immigrants at all. They are in reality just thieves, and they should always be thought of as such.

Some might ask, “What have they stolen?” They have stolen the privilege of being able to live in the United States. They have stolen an intangible thing, but this intangible thing is of far more value than the $2,000 “fine” for stealing it included in the Senate “immigration-reform” bill passed last year.

Allowing illegal aliens to pay a $2,000 fine and remain in the United States is like letting someone keep $100,000 that they have stolen, but making them pay a $2,000 fine. Such an action is idiotic, and we should tell the politicians pushing this as much.
