    This section seems to be transfixed on the negative impact that illegal Mexican border hoppers have on the American welfare system/economy.

    So, would you be as resentful if America saw an influx in immigrants from more prosperous nations such as the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Scandinavia, Australia and New Zealand, on the condition that they swore allegiance to the United States (it's not an unreasonable demand)? I know for a fact that there are plenty who want to come, but would they be welcome?

    I know it's a loaded question as the potential arrivals would already be largely self-sufficient and have a good grasp of English (the majority of Europeans from the west of the continent speak good English). But, although their numbers may present some hurdles, they wouldn't come anywhere close to the burden Hispanic border hoppers put on the American ecomony.

    Yay or nay, America?

    When we get immigrants from countries like England, Germany and Australia they usually come here with an education and job skills and follow the proper immigrations channels for the most part, alot of the illegals we get here have never even tried to apply for the green cards and believe they are entitled to things like welfare, housing, education etc when they are not trying to get straightened out legally, thats what alot of peoples problems with them seem to be, Mexicans that come from money are of course a different matter.

    Actually the US sends back people all the time who go through the proper legal channels. Thats why the illegals don't want to go through them, getting into the States is not easy if you want to do it legit.

    Most of those nationalities are here now; illegally.

    They ALL come here the legal way or no way at all.

    This is a particularly poignant and timely question. The Chinese, Russian and Irish immigrants are present and I wonder if they are any more legal than a Mexican. Nobody seems to care, it's interesting.

    I know first hand that Chinese sponsor their "nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law", which means the immigrants journey is paid and then enslavement ensues in the corner restaurant whereby these immigrants are paid below legal salary wages until their passage is paid up.

    Maybe its because Mexicans are brown.
