The Mexican government has funded staging area's for Mezicans attamepting to cross into the USA illegaly. Not suprising when 40% of Mexicans said they want to move to the USA.


"The Mexican staging area for illegal aliens that New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson demanded this week be bulldozed is among hundreds of similar sites along the border sponsored and maintained by the Mexican government.

Many of the sites are marked with blue flags and pennants to signal that water is available. Others, such as the Las Chepas site that Mr. Richardson denounced, are a collection of old, mostly abandoned buildings or ranch houses where illegals gather for water and other supplies -- sometimes bartering with smugglers, or "coyotes," for passage north.

Las Chepas, law-enforcement authorities said, also is a center for drug smugglers looking to move marijuana and coc aine into the United States.

Rafael Laveaga, spokesman for the Mexican Embassy in Washington, yesterday said his government "has a duty and obligation by law to protect Mexican citizens at home and abroad."

Build a very large wall, put some automated guns on it, patrol above with drones. Randomly shoot 5 illegals attampting to cross per day. Sends a pretty clear message if you ask me. Solve the issue nicely.
