I personally do not mind spilling the blood of foreign invaders just like we are spilling the blood of Arabs every day.
well it looks like the moderators are united
is that they are sympathizers of the illegal foreign invaders or they are trying to protect their website from litigation or censure
moderators? please help?
you wont be able to convince people it is a problem until its too late
It is the R&Fs that hire illegals. The Rich and Famous. Most R&Fs are Republicans.
This mass immigration into the states (if made legal) is going to completely destroy our job opportunities as the middle class (and majority) of america.
You could tag every illegal caught and shipped back!
. If the borders are open for anyone to walk across easily, someone wanting to attack the United States will use that to their advantage someday.
Hiring the illegal aliens for sub-minimum wage is wrong and should not be legalized with an immigrant work program.

That's an important difference.

An Immigrant Writes - Keep the doors of this country open
Already we hear so much talk about so many false choices. We are told that in a free society it's not possible to have border security. We are advised that in order to secure the borders, we must deport 12 million people. Never mind that we don't know who they are or where they are, and that it could cost up to $230 billion to do it.

Cost of Illegal Immigration May Be Less Than Meets the Eye
But before concluding that immigrants are undercutting the wages of the least fortunate Americans, perhaps one should consider Ohio. Unlike California, Ohio remains mostly free of illegal immigrants. And what happened to the wages of Ohio's high school dropouts from 1980 to 2004? They fell 31 percent.
It is sensible to expect that, because they were willing to work for low wages, they would undercut the position in the labor market of American high school dropouts.
This common sense, however, ignores half the picture. Over the last quarter-century, the number of people without any college education, including high school dropouts, has fallen sharply. This has reduced the pool of workers who are most vulnerable to competition from illegal immigrants.
In addition, as businesses and other economic agents have adjusted to immigration, they have made changes that have muted much of immigration's impact on American workers.
For instance, the availability of foreign workers at low wages in the Nebraska poultry industry made companies realize that they had the personnel to expand. So they invested in new equipment, generating jobs that would not otherwise be there. In California's strawberry patches, illegal immigrants are not competing against native workers; they are competing against pickers in Michoacán, Mexico. If the immigrant pickers did not come north across the border, the strawberries would.

Sure they used machine guns and land mines. But they served more as a deterrent than a practical barrier. These are times in which we must secure more brutal and inhumane options if we are to survive politically, economically, and most of all culturally. The time is now.

How does your wall deal with tunnels?
If you have an answer for the tunnel problem, the Israelis would surely love to know.

“. . If the borders are open for anyone to walk across easily, someone wanting to attack the United States will use that to their advantage someday.
The problem with this thought is that a terrorist group can always evade any kind of reasonable security at the borders, and that the only people that have ever tried to commit acts of terrorism came across the Canadian border or just entered the country through the airports . . we'd have to build a shell around the whole country to keep [determined] terrorists out.

Anyone that wants to come to America should be allowed to, but they should be do it the right way, legally.

It will take a few thousands bodies, but after that, the floww would slow down to a trickle of what it is today.
Also we need to make the law, illegals are illegal, even if they have kids born in us, they are illegals and get deported back with their parents.
what percent of illegals , now, are from mexico (in california, texas) as opposed to other countries?
we take all aid money going to mexico and use it to beef up our border with Mexico

Accourding to the Washington based Pew Hispanic Center, half of all Mexicans surveryed said they want to come to the US. With a country of about 50,000,000 that means that if they get their way, we will accept 25,000,000 more illegal aliens than are already here. In our country of about 280,000,000 and our cities already inundated with legitimate immigrants an citizens it does not make sense that we allow our present border security apparatus, which let 500,000 in last year alone, to continue to operate as is.
From 1961 to 1989 the post war icon known as the Berlin Wall was the most efficient border security device ever constructed. Before 1961, 2.5 million people fled from East Germany to West Germany unchecked. After construction ONLY 5,000 people snuck across in 28 years. Folks thats only 178 per year compared to half a mil. Sure they used machine guns and land mines. But they served more as a deterrent than a practical barrier. These are times in which we must secure more brutal and inhumane options if we are to survive politically, economically, and most of all culturally. The time is now.
