It’s often said that illegal aliens are “just looking for a better opportunity.” Well, so would I be if I snuck into a department store at night and took items that I wanted.
Illegal aliens are stealing what does not belong to them and which they had no part in making.
But we do have a process for those who wish to enter the country legally, to benefit from the fruits of a system that they had no part in making. This is a recognized function of a civilized country (as opposed to uncivilized countries such as North Korea). But “just because I want to” has never been a legitimate reason to break the law.
On another subject, I’m going to have to cut down for the moment on posting in the Prose/Poetry section. The workload of running this site is becoming too much for one. I need to ask that only original poetry or prose be submitted for that section. Thanks for your understanding.
If one wants to do an extended essay on some beloved poem, then have at it. All such creative works will be honored. I have someone who may in the future be volunteering as a sort of assistant editor. If that happens then I can “liberalize” this policy.
