This article divides people. Yes, 99% of us descend from immigrants, this is a melting pot, we should embrace different cultures, blah blah blah. No one is arguing that. But why can’t people just come here LEGALLY? The word “illegal immigrant” means you are an immigrant who came here illegally. Why shouldn’t that crime be punished the same way I get punished for speeding? Or battery? Or possession? Why is being undocumented being heralded as this brave thing? It’s still illegal, we shouldn’t celebrate it. They should become citizens, like so many other immigrants do.
