    Suggest you look at the actual demographic statistics underlying illegal immigration.  There's a whole lot of "Germans" (i.e. Europeans) wholescale violating the immigration laws too.  Folks like you don't care about them, though - since the immigration law allows forgiveness for all of those violations pretty readily if you are just able to enter the country legally, even as a 90-day visitor.

    Unfortunately, as even those of us who are deeply troubled by the question of illegal immigration know, our country's immigration law is deeply racist when it comes to who is permitted to visit here, legally.  Including in the fact that it is only those haling from places where it is extremely difficult to get a visitor's or other visa (for reasons having nothing to do with them, but their country -- correlated strongly with non-European) who are harshly punished for violating the immigration law when they enter anyway.
