re: your signature....
Yes, of course... Someone (who had as little to do with where they were born as you or I) fleeing a bleak and dangerous live in search of opportunity is ethically comparable to someone who profits from selling poison to people. Yes. ..A great comparison

...or just when you read something you don't understand?
Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a
drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'
my comment may have come quickly, but it was hardly knee-jerk in the sense that I missed the mark.
It seems to me that you're saying "undocumented immigrant" and "unlicensed pharmacist" are equal euphemisms for illegal alien and drug-dealer. Am I wrong?
Although why you call street drugs "poison" is a question, when you have mainstream pharma companies killing 50,000 people annually with their patented potions (followed by the inevitable class-action suits).
So the few bad-acting Pharma companies notwithstanding, are you saying that the drugs dispensed by licensed pharmacists are no better than the crack cocaine, heroin, crystal meth, etc.. being sold by drug dealers?
Keep that in mind the next time you, or a loved one, needs to pick up insulin, blood pressure meds, antibiotics, blood thinners, birth control, anti seizure meds.... etc...
I'm not sure the pharma guys are 'bad' in the sense of 'evil'. The FDA and they are partners in this drug scheme. People love drugs to 'fix' things. Look how many diet pills are out there when all you need do is control food intake in the right way. (metabolic exceptions exist, of course)
Everytime I see a drug add on TV, they list 'Side Effects', which sometimes are 10 items long. They are low probability, to be sure, but it all adds up. For someone 50lb+ overweight with high BP and going on Diabetes, what can you expect?
I've recently lost 35lb with another 30 to go...and maybe more, later, and right now my BP has straightened out considerably and my blood chemistry is 'normal'. Other things are better, too, from feet to hats.
Too much is never enough
Why even bother? As if a figure like 50,000 means a thing without being placed in the proper context.
