I didn't say you were. I was simply establishing a baseline of property rights and borders. But yes, there is a difference between your home and a couple thousand in a country of millions. And if that is all it was, I would agree. However, a more full and accurate telling of the situation would be that even the Pew Research Center estimated nearly 4% of the entire population of the US was here illegally as of 2014. https://cdn.factcheck.org/UploadedFiles/Census-Bureau-Population-Estimates-2014.pdf The caravan, which estimates vary, but nearly all agree is several thousands on its own would not be a big deal if evenly diffused across the 330 million as you've suggested. That's not going to happen though, some border town - far from you so you don't have to worry about it and can be sanctimonious about it - will take the brunt of it. Not only that but let's be honest and admit that if the caravan is allowed to be successful, it will open the floodgates across all of South and Central America for copycat caravans. If given the choice, I suspect a majority of people living in South & Central America, as well as the Carribean, would choose to emigrate to America. That's around 640 million people, so if even just 5% crossed our borders illegally, we're talking about 32 million or about 10% of the current population including the 4% already here illegally.
