The rest of your post isn't even rational in the least bit.
Yes, if a mountain lion attacked them that would be bad, but not the lions fault.
What's malicious is wishing the lions would kill the immigrants to begin with.
Are you Native American?
My stance on the illegal issue is to send the national guard down there to protect our borders.
I also believe we should make it easier for them to become legal citizens so they can have the same opportunities we were born with.
Nope, only in the evenings; i only have so much viable lung tissue to spend.
Aren't the border crossers willing participants in a highly risky and illegal misadventure? Now, if they are being kidnapped & force-marched across this dangerous section of the border, I would be against watching them lose a fight with mother nature. Otherwise, it is quite similar to an extreme bloopers episode of "man vs. wild". As far as "wishing death upon" people trying to "better themselves," that is perfectly natural; many times in human history different groups of people have competed for limited resources with the winning side celebrating the failure of the losers. The illegals would be unsuccessful/failures if they were severely mauled or eaten by naturally occuring predators. I guess watching them suffer would make someone a "bad winner" in the contest for American jobs & adequate social services.
Yes, I am a "native" to this country; i was born here, to parents born here, who were also born to parents born here. The beginning of my family line in this country started by LEGAL immigration in the latter 1800's, btw (previously Irish & Scott stock).
My stance on the issue is that the illegals should be stopped by whatever reasonable means are needed to stop them, up to and including the use of deadly force. They, including any illegal family members dragged along, should be denied any social services paid for by my tax dollars. If they want to be Americans, they should start by asking for the priviledge, not trying to slip it up Lady Liberty's pooper while she's napping.
Would i support sniper towers with paid admission? If they were placed and managed in such a way as to prevent any legal citizens or innocent bystanders being injured and the occupants were armed with pepper spray or beanbag ammo, absolutely. That would be a way to cheer some economically depressed people up: "shoot the jerks coming for your jobs & healthcare opportunities".
edit* I guess i should explain that my views have gotten much more ANTI-illegal immigrant since a recent ICE raid on a manufacturer in a small town in my home county. I had always heard that bit about "illegals wouldn't have jobs if it was a job an American wanted to work", but after that raid, there were people lined up for those couple hundred jobs that were suddenly vacated by the exiting illegals, American people. I knew/know some of those who lined up to replace the illegals; the people i know needed work & were glad to get a chance at it.
