Yes, this nation was built on immigrants. And how we treat them reflects on America's image throughout the world.

No,we should worry more about the crimes illegal aliens commit against US.

I still say they're lucky if THAT happens to them. They get mugged and killed all the time down here.

If those committing the crimes against the illegals are US citizens they should be subject to the full recourse of the law.

I just don't know where I stand on this. On one hand, it's awful to think people are harming illegal immigrants - either by physically hurting them or taking advantage of them. But at the same time, American citizens are having crimes committed against them as well, and I just feel that's where our resources should be focused. If they aren't supposed to be here in the first place and are committing a crime by coming, should we really worry about crimes committed against them? As human beings we worry about it, because most of us have a heart. But should the government legislate morality? Hmm ... anyway the reason I'm here is there is a new article about a program set up to help illegal immigrants in Kansas City. Kind of interesting, here's the link

Of course! They're still people..and on they're on American soil.

Yes, everyone deserves protection against crimes

Yes, although not with more focus than on other crimes. The person committing the act is still violating law.

If they are legal aliens then yes. Why should the US take care of a citizen of another country?

Crime is crime--the government should take steps to address all issues involving criminal acts...

yes i sure do

I agree completely. The phrase "ILLEGAL" seems to stand out. They shouldn't even be here. The government imo needs to get off their asses and get them OUT.

16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/22/05 - 12:20:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.

Of course illegal aliens are still people. Arapist or child molester will rape a legal citizen just as well as an illegal one. Just because they fled the injustice of their country, doesn't mean they should meet the same fate everywhere they go.

This whole anti-illigals thing is the new breed of the KKK.

Yeah, and luckily they do. I'd be pretty unhappy if the cops around here ignored someone being attacked just because he doesn't have a green card.

Listen to her, people, you're saying that if someone robs and illigal alien, it isn't the same thing as if someone robbed a "legal".

A U.S. citizen does not have the right to commit a crime against anyone, regardless of whether the victim is American or not. So, yes, the U.S. government should pay attention to crimes committed against illegal aliens. Murder, assault, rape, robbery or any other crime will never justified by the law.

illegal immigrants-no
legal immigrants-yes

I saw a statistic that suggested there were at least as many illegal Canadians in the States as illegal Mexicans. But Mexico is proving to be a better friend to the USA than Canada is.

Since they are illegal, they don't belong here in the first place.
