Exhibit A on why we need a fence, there is no fear of consequences.
Nineth Castillo, a 26-year-old waitress from Guatemala who joined the Atlanta march, said she has lived in the United States for 11 years "without a scrap of paper." Asked whether she was afraid to parade her undocumented status in front of a massive police presence, she laughed and said: "Why? They kick us out, we're coming back tomorrow."
Exhibit B on why there needs to be a fence, parched desert is not enough of a deterrent. Plus note Senor Penate is quoting the meme of there is no legal means to immigrate, I will tackle this falsehood later.
"There's no way to come legally over here," said Penate, 25. "If there was, do you think people would like to be in the desert risking their lives?"

One of three people carrying signs saying illegal immigrants have no rights was

Someone who does not get it. There are legal channels for immigration. Go to the local US embassy or consulate, fill out the paperwork, and get in line.

For Senor Penate, the annual quota for El Salvador is 75,000.
We're hoping that employers stop to consider what this is all about," organizer Adriana Galvez said. "That if you need people here to do the work, to buy, then give them a legal channel to get here.
This quote makes me scratch my head. "The pilgrims had no green cards." Which pilgrims? The ones to the Holy Land during the Crusades? Of course they lacked green cards, they had Knights Templar or Knights Hospitaler instead. They worked much better than a green card.
I think this naturalized US citizen summed it up nicely.
"Go to jail!" shouted William Hazzard, 58, a retired school custodian from Harrisburg. "I'm from Germany and I had to give up my rights as a German citizen. I had to speak English."
