Dishonesty is illegal immigrants' original act as they enter over our borders. All those illegal immigrants who have attempted to plunder the benefits and opportunities of U.S. citizens are actually thieves and robbers.

Honest aliens are entering our country the legal way -- the way of the law. The illegals begging for the rights and opportunities of our nation lust for other benefits regarding our schools, hospitals, workplaces, with no feelings of guilt. Those pursuing legal immigration have honest motivations.

All the illegals should leave our country voluntarily. Nothing based on dishonesty ever prospers, especially when they impose on others who are innocent.

The drug runners and criminals should be returned to their countries and incarcerated there, not burdening our taxpayers.

Heavily guarded borders would not be necessary if the citizens of other countries and our own would show mutual respect for their respective laws.
