lol, the bundles of marijuana is probably part of how the mexican army funds itself. Just another way for them to capitalize on lackluster american border policies. Fortunately i live in east texas and dont have to bother to much with worrying about illeagal aliens.

Well, to retort:
Montana is also a huge state my friend, so why the beef with Mexico? Cant terrorists just as easily sneak in through Canada? Or bank robbers, child molestors, crackheads, etc...
On the second note...
The taxes they dont pay is such a small chunk of money compared to what US companies drain from their countries, so we can call it square. How many Kelloggs or Ralston plants reinvest into the communities they employ? We have done nothing but rape all of South Americas resources, be it man-power, or minerals, or agriculture. All so another rich white CEO can drive a new Benz. The tax arguement is silly and only pales to the amount of money your own companies steal from us by building their factories across the border.
As for the social impact...We could all use a little culture bud. Learn Spanish. Most other countries learn English. You do realize we dont have a national language right? And why in the hell would a Mexican flag offend you? They fly the Mexican flag because they are proud of their heritage. Are you?
The US has done nothing for them. Thats why they have to sneak here illegally to earn a decent living. US imperialism has destroyed their economies. Their leaders are puppets to US interests. Most South American nations are led by the US's lap dogs. Thats why they give em maps to get here and find jobs paying peanuts. Its all a boost to our economy, and appears to be one for theirs...but isnt.

I'm kidding, I'm kidding. On a serious note, what are armed military personnel doing on American soil? Has any official explanation ever been given?
