    No matter how tall or how thick we build our Southern wall they will always find another way to get to the "promise land." It is high time our Fed Government takes a good hard look at why we are facing an invasion from the South! We seem to have no problem interfering with a country's internal affairs half a world away so why haven't we stepped in down there? It is a war down in Mexico and the Mexican Government is losing. These Cartels are now using the same urban tactics that "terrorists" were/are using in places we call waz zones!
    We have finally pulled troops out of a country with a budding democracy to let them walk on their own, it's time we help our neighbor before their Democratic way of life topples! I am done bitching and moaning about those that are running from certain death and a failed economy. If Mexico falls to the Cartels how long before we do as well? Not long at all if our Fed Government continues to ignore the problem...

    We should help Mexico fight the cartels but not because of Immigrants. We should also seal our borders. Illegals are just that illegal. Exactly how do you justify to my Brother in law and my sister in law both in the Philippines that they must wait YEARS to get an immigration visa with us WILLING and ABLE to support them to prevent them from being a drain on the Government, BUT we can let MILLIONS of illegal Mexicans in , Amnesty them and let them be a HUGE drain on our schools, hospitals and local Governments?

    Plus only recently have the cartels interfered with illegals.

    There's no way in hell I'd support a blanket amnesty for the illegals here. What I'm commenting on is attacking the reason they're here in the first place. Whether it be a corrupt government, after NAFTA took place the Mexican Government promised to invest billions in infrastructure repairs to entice businesses to build "border factories" but they didn't and instead of NAFTA helping the Mexican economy it destroyed the Peso. Or it could be the war between the Cartels and the ineffective Mexican military, this drug war going on down there is killing people by the 1000s and is slowly making its way to our border towns!!

    So as long as our economy's bad there will be less illegals... Do we plan on staying in an economical slump or was this the plan on how to combat this invasion all along by our Fed Government? Once our economy rebounds do you think those numbers will continue to stay low?

    None of this will stop until the USA becomes another third world country. It's well on its way thanks to the good for nothing federal government who does NOTHING and does not allow the states to do anything either! We can kiss this country good-bye in the next 2/5 yrs. - maybe sooner.

    I say no immigration deals until Mexico becomes as diverse as the United States. They must start accepting immigrants from around the world which they will take care of. If they want to prosper, they must end their stupid LA RAZA racism.
