How is opposition to illegal immigration "racist?"

Apparently it's the illegal immigrant's God-given right to wade across the Rio Grande and snag a job that home-grown Americans don't want to do. Like any job that pays less than the prevailing and pathetic minimum wage.

All those Social Justice Warriors keen on bumping the legal min wage to $15 don't have a clue what to do with those neighbours wading across the Rio Grande to get away from their own ninety cents per hour min wage.

Don't get me wrong; I'm 100% for the $15 is fair campaign. Problem is it's probably more fair in the Dakotas and Maine than it is in NYC and Philly and LA. Not to mention that this is a moot discussion unless the southern border is managed properly.

It's a concept fundamental to the Christian faith that we will be judged by how we treat the most vulnerable among us. From what I see, we don't treat them very well.

While I suspect that Trump is mostly blowing smoke with his "border wall" proclamations, why is it considered offensive when a presidential candidate promises to restore the integrity of America's borders? Every other nation state on the planet works hard to maintain the integrity of its borders, so why not the most "exceptional" nation state?
