Sister Linda, very few people care how many Hispanics, Italians, Japanese, Whites or African-Americans are here in the US. LEGAL immigration is what we want. ILLEGAL immigration goes against "fairness" and the rule of law that the rest of us have to follow.
Compassion...? What about all the millions of families that have applied to come to the US (LEGALLY) that are being held up because of all the ILLEGAL immigrants that cut in line and filled the immigration requirements.
