Why do people who are pro illegal immigration always try to blur the distinction with legal immigration?

There are plenty of hardworking people who came to this country and contributed to it without asking for handouts. Alexander Grahm Bell, the German scientists that developed rockets for NASA, etc. Many legal immigrants fill high tech and engineering jobs that we can't fill with our own population because we have an overabundance of liberal arts and business degrees and not enough engineering and technology degrees. However, Illegal aliens are the bottom of the barrel from their country. Many of them were criminals back home, and have no skills. Entering our country without going through a border crossing and trying to apply for a Visa is their original sin. It is their first crime, and not a good way to start off. My question is, why try to blur the distinction and cast doubt on all of the good immigrants that make positive contributions and pay taxes, and aren't a drain on our hospitals and schools?

I agree, illegals hurt all legal immigrants and cause many problems. There is no comparison. Legal immigrants assimilate and respect laws. Illegals do not. That is why I like to see groups like youdontspeakforme join in the fight also.

I certainly never do, in most immigration posts I'm anti-illegal immigration, while praising my legal immigrant grandmother, my grandmother who works her butt off (and still does in her late 60s) is also anti-illegal immigrant, she worked hard to get here.

To lock them all into the same category fits the pro-illegal ideal, that anyone who wants to come here should be able to. Every other country respects it's borders though, why shouldn't we? And also, logic is not on the pro-illegal side, any more than on the pro-life side; it's all based on emotion.

Because that is the only way that they know how to justify illegals in this country. They like to confuse the issue with legal immigration and call anyone who opposes it xenophobes and racists. They also confuse it with "multicultural diversity" which is just a nice way of sugar coating illegals having the right to... More

That is how they do things. They know they have no valid argument for people willingly breaking the law and putting themselves first. Anyone who truly knows how much illegals hurt tax payers knows to ignore that and simply continue the fight. In the end, it is not against those types of people it is against our own... More

Most people in the United States do not understand our immigration laws. Some of them are very complex. There are alot of immigrants here who have tried very hard to immigrate legally; but have fallen threw the cracks of our laws. For instance some children came over under their parents green card papers. Then when... More

"Always" hummm, could you provide some credible links or sources to your claim? I don't see anyone doing that, although I have no idea what a "pro illegal is".

There is no positive to illegal immigration. To make illegal immigration seem positive they must combine facts for legal & i****************s. They also combine facts for legal hispanics with illegal hispanics to make it seem that they contribute more to our economy than they really do.

Because they know their so called arguments are bogus so they throw out anything they can. They also like to throw around racism, the Native Americans, citizens on welfare etc. They like to try to blur many things, it's just what they do.
