I'm pretty sure that there is a BIG difference between slavery and ILLEGAL immigration. Illegal immigration is where people want a better life for themselves and their families and for whatever reason(Good or bad) they decide not to wait and go about the process legally, but instead sneak into the United States. Yeah, it's against the law, I don't advocate it BUT...I can't say that I would NEVER do it depending on my circumstances. But no matter, its STILL illegal!!! Slavery on the other hand, was where past Americans, invaded another continent and FORCED people AGAINST their will into our country and then were treated like animals...cattle...sold...beat...raped to concieve more slaves...all human dignity being stripped away from them...uh yeah...I'm PRETTY sure there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between that and the new immigration law. We all take risks in life...I honestly, really don't care if people are here illegally(As long as they are nice people)...but you have to understand the consequences of the choice you made..if its against the law you can't say THE government is RACIST for catching you!!! I can understand WHY people might not like the law...but it's NOT racist and DON'T EVEN COMPARE IT TO SLAVERY!!!!
