Why not just open the borders, fire all the border patrol and send them to the Middle East? Hell, after all the Mexicans are here, we can just pack up
and all move to Mexico. And if they don't want to let us buy their land, no problem: we just sick Bush on em with his own personal agenda military.
Then we can close the border, leave the Mexicans stranded in the USA, and let them have at it all they want. Well my bet is Americans would make
something of that place. There'd be just about everything we have here eventually, and when they start crossing the border illegally back into Mexico
again, just move right back up here. :shk:
The issue is with their system, which is not working, or is corrupt to the point of economic disaster. The issue is with their people who have lost
faith in the government because of its inordinate inability to police itself, crime, and stimulate the economy. It's lack of social programs that
work, even though half the ones in the US don't work well either.

Back on topic, ahem, umm.... Really, I was hoping for some sociological insight as to why these people that I have talked to in the original post have
taken that position of the title thread. Any ideas, anyone? Unfortunately, we digress into the topic of immigration as a whole again, of which there
are many threads already.
I think BH has really tried to understand and repond to where I'm coming from on this. She pointed out that this thread title position has NOTHING to
do with the discussion of legality. Mexicans in particular have abandoned their county, desperate for jobs and food to the point of risking death in
the desert to get out of there. That directly points to their government, but it also points to them. Hey Bush, how bout putting Mexico on your FixIt
The issue is, our country has an immigration policy, just like every other country. Border security is being abused, not enforced well enough, and it
is time to do something. The Fence.
Mexicans have got to start understanding that they
have worn out their ILLEGAL welcome. Not their legal one though, by any means. So if I am a racist for stating that, then erase me. To the border.
edit: replace one word.
