Wouldn't the moral thing to do would be to invite the homeless into your home and feed them? Maybe you'd like to but you don't have the resources to do it because of the limited amount of space in your home and/or maybe you don't have enough money to feed everyone.
If you had insight into the homeless that you're thinking about bringing into your home, wouldn’t you want to screen out felons because you might be putting your family at risk?
Wouldn't it make more sense to only invite the number of homeless into your home that you could afford to help this way you could sustain helping people for years to come?
What about the rights of Americans to pursue prosperity for themselves and their families yet their wages are being held back because of cheap foreign labor? Should the rights of the U.S. citizens for the pursuit of their happiness be trumped by illegal immigrants?
Is it okay to have laws and then everyone can pick and choose which ones they'll follow? The fact is, we wouldn't have to pass any new laws regarding immigration if we'd enforce those already on the books.
I'd have way more than this to debate that particular Liberal about but I'll leave it at this. The bottom line is doing what's best for Americans first can lead to good things for those who want to immigrate here legally but the reverse isn't true. It's really this simple.
