Support the legal law-abiding immigrant

Average Americans break the law they get punished. Illegals break the law they get food stamps, housing, drivers licenses, schooling, etc. All they have to do is say they are trying to feed their family.

Politicians who ignore the law and the oath they swore to uphold get reelected.

What's wrong with this picture?

Does this mean if an American gets caught breaking into a home, all they have to say is they're trying to feed their family and they will not be punished?

We bend over backward to reunite the illegal criminal with their family yet imprison the American and separate them from their family.

What's wrong with this picture?

Wake up America.

We are either a county of laws or not. There are thousands of honest, law-abiding immigrants waiting to come to America legally, yet we protect the criminal element that chooses to disrespect our laws.

We can start to do the right thing by voting out the politician who ignores the law they took an oath to enforce and supports the criminal element.

A pig with lipstick is still a pig. An illegal is still a criminal.

Let's do the right thing and start supporting the legal law-abiding immigrant.
