When a species no longer has any resources in one place it migrates to another. This is how mankind has survived for millions of years. If anyone is naive enough to think that "government" is going to halt millions of years of evolution, they re mistaken. As long as there are resources available here people are going to migrate here by any means that will work, illegally or legally. It's survival.

You can count a revolution out. A revolution would be a revolt against the government by its citizens, which is something that will never happen given the circumstances that the people is our government.

No, when a species is invade by foreigners that pillage and plunder its social systems, wealth, and way of life then you have war!
I don't care how messed up Mexico is, that is not my nor the USA’s problem.
Let the people of Mexico fix their own country instad of screwing ours.
They don't have some god given right to Illegally waltz in here because their poor excuse for a country just so happens to be next to ours. If they want to come in here then they should get in line behind the millions of others who are waiting to legally enter the US.
The U S of A. In all those years, NOT ONE MEXICAN HAS BEEN ARRESTED FOR AN ACT OF TERRORISM.
IF we wanted to STOP the influx of low cost labor, we could do it in a day! Impose a $25,000 a day fine on EMPLOYERS of undocumented workers. Grant amnesty to any illegal worker who turns himself in to the ICE. Divide the fines with the workers. In one day, no more illegal workers. BUT we Americans would find ourselves in DEEP trouble. Food costs would rise 15%-20% at once. Other low skilled jobs would go unfilled. Lawn work, car washes, other so-called menial labor.
Sorry, folks, we have PAINTED ourselves into a corner. We can’t live with them, we can’t live without them. Let’s give them a Green Card and MOVE ON.

Most of my ancestors colonized this country BEFORE it was a country--they came to Connecticut and Virginia.
Some more of my ancestors came here from Germany to New York in the early 18th century, and some went on to Canada after the revolution because they were loyalists (on Grandpa's side...on Grandma's side they were on the American side).
I supposedly have Cherokee ancestors. So my roots run deep here.
On my birth father's side, I had a set of great-grandparents who came here LEGALLY, from Russia and Poland.
Before 1965 or thereabouts there was a limit as to how many people from what country could come here.
This is our country, and we have every right to limit who enters! Fox doesn't have any kind of say as to what kind of fence we put up along the border, and illegals sure don't have a legitimate say, because they're not Americans.
I live in Ohio and I'm sick of having to select a language at the ATM. One time I hit the wrong button...good thing I knew enough Spanish to complete my transaction!

If legal immigrants are ok but "illegal" immigrants are not why not just simplify matters and get rid of the laws that make them illegal in the first place?
I'm sorry but I can not take the claims of the anti-immigrant groups seriously simply for the fact that its the same old song and dance thats been repeated ad nauseum since day one. The same things people say about Mexicans now were said about Italians when they first came over. Literally the same exact things, everything from they don't assimilate to they drive the crime rate up. Its a load of BS in my opinion. A fad thats come in and out of popularity depending on the political mood of the country.

By the way our country is very far from being full last time I checked there were huge swathes of underpopulated land running all throughout the middle of this huge country I am proud to call home.
