Everybody deserves the right to a better life ? Where does it say that?

All this rhetoric is an attempt to distract U.S Citizens away from the issue of Illegal Immigration and boarder inforceement.

This whole problem has been weighing heavy on my mind. On the one hand, I have compassion for and want to help others in need, but on the other hand, I do not want to risk our own security in the process. I have no problem with honest, hard working people coming here legally and trying to make a better life for themselves. I applaud them for it. There is a legal process for entering this country and for obtaining work visas. Enforcing the laws already in place is the only way to realistically even begin to sort out this mess. How much of the world can we support on our backs before the weight of it crushes us? Our life raft is overflowing now, and more people are clammoring to get on board. The prosperity they seek will soon vanish under the deluge. We will become a third world country (many parts of the U.S. already are). I fear the direction we're headed, and that fear is reinforced with every politician who capitulates to mob rule because they regard the almighty vote as more valuable than preserving this great Nation. 4

Whew. We are, in fact, obliged? And what are the constitutional boundaries of this obligation? Allow all oppressed to enter our borders permanently, even those breaking the law (our law) to get in? Are we also obliged to feed them? Clothe them? Educate them? Employ them? I just don't think we're quite that close to utopia yet. How will we pay for it? Just sit down and print more money? And the basis for this is (drum roll): "because of our foreign policy. " The one Bush is continuing? The one Clinton continued, and Bush before that, and Reaqan, and Carter, and Ford, and Nixon. How far back do we go to establish how much we need to punish the evil foreign policy of the United States? Or were all the democrats the good guys, and all the evil republicans the bad guys?5

You know, I understand the statement. I simply disagree with it. We ARE in fact obliged, because many people are here because of our foreign policy.2
