It's a different topic, but I'm reminded of Father Corapi's comments about how socialism lowers the lowest common denominator.    "The common error is to think that socialism helps the poor and disenfranchised. As Pope Leo XIII pointed out as long ago as 1891 in his Encyclical “Rerum Novarum”, socialism does not help the poor. Rather, it reduces everyone to the same lowest common denominator of poverty and misery..., while at the same time drying up the very sources of capital."

I'm not equating socialism with illegal immigration, but I think the consequences are similar.

There is a point where the abuse of illegal immigration becomes unsustainable to the country that they wanted to come to in the first place.
