New Covenant: Elvira Arellano: Kirsten Powers gets it completely wrong

…I have sympathy for anybody who is trying to come from another country and looking for a better life.

…I believe that it’s a basic human right, and that people should be able to come here.

No, Kirsten, it is not a basic human right to enter this country illegally. And, for your information, people are already able to come here – through legal means. What Arellano is doing is nothing more than a defiant stunt, no different than what a child does to determine whether or not his parent will stand by the rules that have been set down. If she’s let off the hook, then our immigration laws are meaningless.
