I hope President Romney will protect the american people by protecting their sovereighnty and our borders better than either Bush or Obama.
Here is the way we should view illegals and our borders IMO - an analogy.
Two guys straight out of college decide to share an apartment for a year. (We'll call them John and Jim.) Both at first split all the expenses and responsibilities and both share all the costs for furniture, food, etc. After six months of a one year lease, John decides on his own that a friend, Jerry, should move in. Jerry hasn't got any money or job and will not assume any of the bills or responsibilites of the other two. Jim doesn't like the new "arrangement", but is powerless to do anything. As time passes, Jim wants the "moocher" to leave (he's loud at night, is drunk all the time and cusses like a sailor), but is constantly overruled by John. So, what should Jim do? Should he break the lease and leave. Should he "settle" for the arrangement and give in. Or should he try to forcibly remove Jerry for being the squatter he is. What would you do?
People have the right to give up their sovereighnty if they wish - knock themselves out so to speak. But they DO NOT have the right to deny soverieghnty to someone else. In other words, Jims sovereingty must "trump" Johns because they both live together and had a mutual agreement to begin with that John decided on his own to break. Soverieghnty is a right of a free people to protect themselves against outside intrusion. It is by necessity a human citizen's right that should not be infringed. Its why nations have borders in the first place.
