A cliché used to excuse those who break the immigration laws is that violators simply want "to make a better life for themselves." But this argument is the same argument that applies to all crime.
Thieves don't have enough money so they steal to make a better life for themselves.
Should we stop enforcing all our criminal statutes simply because the criminals want to make a better life for themselves? We should stop trying to rationalize criminal behavior and start enforcing our immigration laws.
