Immigrants should enter legally

Our country is a country of immigrants. We're known as the "melting pot" for a reason. Recently immigration has been a big deal and it is getting out of hand, because it's being done illegally. States like Arizona are having stricter laws regarding illegal immigration. It's not fair to the honest immigrants who are doing the right thing by getting the correct documentation to become legal citizens.

I support legal immigration. I feel that we have to be stricter in securing our borders. If someone were to break into McDonald's because they were hungry, they'd be charged with breaking and entering. So why don't the same rules apply for our country?

I'm aware of them wanting to come to this country to better themselves, but I only ask that they do it the right way.
