    How do you know this guy was here illegally? Prestage Foods hires a lot of green card employees. Maybe he was one of those. Of course that doesn’t fit your narrative, so naturally you will come back with a snarky comment.

    I’m fine with immigrants as long as they aren’t illegal. Illegal immigrants should fvcking go back to their country. I hate illegals. If you want to enter this country, do it legally, there’s no point in ruining the economy. They get free healthcare, free food, free housing, all from taxpayer’s pockets. I’m fine with deporting unless they are gravely sick or injured. Illegals are at the same level as thieves in my eyes. A crime is a crime, and entering this country illegally is no better than entering somebody’s home illegal. I have the right to my opinion, and I’m sorry if you don’t agree with it, but it’s what I believe. There are ways to enter this country legally. The thing is, illegal immigrants do ruin the economy. Who pays for their healthcare and their housing systems? It’s not the government, because they’re trillions of dollars in debt. And then there’s the fact that they are treated better than homeless veterans, that’s what gets me angry. People who serve our country wind up on the streets, where people who enter our country illegally are getting free meals. I’m perfectly fine with immigrants, just not the illegal ones. A crime is a crime, and they deserve to be punished! Illegal immigrants have no place in my heart…
