Crazy! Group Demands a Bill of Rights for Illegal Immigrants!

A group calling itself United We Stay has produced its own Bill of Rights for“undocumented Americans.”

On its website it writes:

“Since Congress refuses to act, it’s time we take matters into our own hands. Our Undocumented Americans’ Bill of Rights is a good start. Instead of making impregnable border security the beginning and end of all immigration discussions, let’s find a real roadmap forward.”


Perhaps illegal immigrants who enter the United States should consider the policies towards illegal immigrants from one of the countries they are escaping from: Mexico. Here are some of the laws and current practices in Mexico governing illegal entry into their country:

  • An illegal immigrant who sneaks into the country, or fails to file his papers, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
  • An illegal immigrant who forges his documents, or falsifies them by lying when he fills them out, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
  • An illegal immigrant who takes a job faces fines, up to six years in prison, and deportation.
  • All immigrants must provide proof of their legal status if the authorities demand it.  Failure to do so will result, once more, in fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.

Why does America not have the same policy? And why should Americans even consider such an outrageous demand by non-citizens?
