Why do liberals side with people that don't respect our immigration laws?

    Because they conflate and confuse the ideas of helping a single individual that's in need with the idea that helping a whole country in need is somehow the same thing.

    A single individual that needs a dollar, five bucks, or a temporary roof over their head till they can find and get their own is not the same as millions of people fleeing their home countries and attempting to cross into the U.S illegally.

    Our heartstrings might be tugged on some when we hear and see what these people's situation is, but that doesn't change the fact that the U.S government and authorities as a whole have to be equipped and prepared to deal with such an unusually large number of people. As well as our legal and financial systems be able to help and/or deal with these people when certain situations come up.

    In terms of the liberals who don't know any better, they believe the false narrative that these illegals are being mistreated. You are not going to respect a law that you falsely believe is causing people harm. In term of the liberals who do know better, there are a variety of reasons they don't want the immigration laws followed. Cheap labor is one, a grab for power is another, but there are more reasons.

    Many of your immigration laws were passed by liberals. Most liberals agree that immigration laws need to be enforced - but in a fair, consistent, and decent manner! Where the person supposedly in charge is grandstanding, racist, and siding with hate groups you are hardly going to have a fair system!

      You just built a straw man. The POTUS isn't racist, grandstanding or siding with hate groups.

    Liberals are authoritarians or totalitarians

    All they do is oppress and dominate and

    Think like Stalin or Mao or Castro on how

    To rule over everyone like a dictator with

    Two rules of law. They get away with everything

    ( no rule of law ) and everyone else gets

    Beaten to death with absolute oppressive

    Rule of iron fisted rule of ( communist law ).

    Do what they say or else. They do not respect

    Our laws and the mafia like Washington

    Establishment is keeping Hillary out of jail.

    Until that stops liberals will continue to break

    The law and attack trump.

    Law says they can request asylum and get a hearing. No disrespect here.

    Easy. We don't want anyone, legal or illegal, mistreated by our government. And the immigrants coming in through Mexico are being mistreated.

    Because each of those people represents another vote to be had in their favor.

    To all demonrats who think liberals actually give a sh*t about illegals, consider this....

    IMMEDIATELY upon Trump stating that he'll be relocating illegal immigrants into the democrat's own self-created sanctuary cities, those same democrats started a fire on Twitter condemning it. Depraved lib CHER even took it a step further on Twitter claiming "We have plenty of homeless of our own we don't need more"

    So in other words - WE'RE ALL ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!....unless you actually want them to be anywhere near us, then we're anti-illegal immigrant.

    F*CK THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

    I'm so tired of their horse sh*t, their blatant lies, their hypocrisy, their terrorism.

    Because our immigration laws have needed an overhaul for years, and the situation does not improve by asinine Trump actions. We live in a real world and need to deal with it. Laws are changeable and controlled by government.

      Immigration court backlog. Scooping up people to hold them up to 6 months before release again is silly and expensive. The issue is really skew of wealth. Immigration issues are a diversion.

    Demanding that our government treat people with humanity doesn't mean that we're "siding with them." Yes, our immigration laws need to be enforced but it is possible to do it in a way that is humane and doesn't rip families apart.

      Kids never stay with adults who are in jail for committing crimes. It's crass for adults to involve kids in their crimes. You've been conned.
