....A good case can be made that enticing a person to break a law is one way we participate in their wrongdoing. Incentivizing people to violate our borders by rewarding them and their children with a big package of material payoffs, is certainly enticing a person to sin.
Wha's stoping people from going BACK to the country where they are still legal citizens, and then coming here again legally? And what's wrong with insisting that they come here the right way, the same as all other immigrants?

The first requirement of love is justice. Some may say "Love is a whole lot more than justice"; but very often the 'love' we see is a whole lot less.
It doesn't benefit anyone, citizen, sojourner, legal or illegal, to live in a country where trespass is encouraged, fraud is condoned, poor men are systematically enticed into lawbreaking with the promise of material gain, the politicians, police, and courts don't enforce the law efficiently and evenhandedly, and essential institutions are approaching breakdown and bankruptcy.
Liberty under law is the foundation of public justice. And Justice is the way a political community expresses love.
