As an American it is obvious that there is some that just want to destroy our country and do whatever they want. Just like they do in there former countries. They like the freedoms but not the laws and they do not understand that the laws are what make the freedoms. They come here under false pretenses and illegally to destroy us from the inside out.

Despite reported decreases in white heroin production in most source countries, increased production in Afghanistan has resulted in an overall increase in worldwide white heroin production. However, U.S. drug markets will most likely not be significantly affected by the increase in Afghanistan-produced heroin in the near term.

Nobody is really on the right rack with this post. I have no problem with people fleeing their homelands in search of a better life, because you know and I know that, if we lived with the same conditions as people in other less fortunate countries, we would ALL do the same thing. Especially if we had families to keep safe. All this border protection # and flag waving and "America, # yeah!" # is making me sick. How about being human? It's NOT illegal immigrants that are the problem. It's the governments of the world. The only way to true peace and harmony is to destroy all forms of government. # will happen. People will die. But if we live our lives fearing the "what ifs", how is anyone gunna ever think straight? We can't put trust in faceless entities to keep us safe from "what ifs". It's an individual's responsibility to care for themselves and their family. We're all humans, and we can't discriminate, especially not about something as trivial as what border someone should be behind. God, that's stupid. Listen to yourselves. You all sound like children.

Its his weak border policy that lets the criminals just walk into the U.S and rob, kill and rape.

Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn.
NASCO has received $2.5 million in Congressional funding from the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) for the development of a technology and tracking project. The project will have a team approach, using members of NASCO as the primary participants in the project, to the extent possible. NASCO believes the deployment of a modern information system will reduce the cost, improve the efficiency, reduce trade-related congestion, and enhance security of cross-border and corridor information, trade and traffic.
One of PP is also right, why don't we hear much about the Mexican Gov. Why is the Mexican governmetn so eager to offload it's own people.
On February 13, miners went to their job sites in the vast pit, to hold them against the threat of possible replacements. Meanwhile, four convoys of Mexican soldiers began moving toward the town. Over 300 heavily-armed members of the state Judicial police took over the streets.
With violent confrontation in the air, local union president Manuel Romero, Cananea mayor Francisco García and police and army officers, entered the mine. They walked from installation to installation, appealing to the miners to leave. Fearing the prospect of armed battle, the workers finally gave up their occupation and ended the strike.
In the days that followed, however, over 120 strike leaders were turned away at the mine gates, as they tried to report back to their old jobs. Hundreds more were permanently laid off and their jobs eliminated.
Something else Time pointed out is how this is causing the breakdown of the used to be tight Mexican family...They thought they could be very Mexican American. I am sure that the orginal generations are not happy how their kids here are turning out. And they are not the first ones. But you can't get away from it!
I think they can see it beginnig to happen. Which is why they have now become so vocal that we need to create a Mexican nation for them. It is scarey and they don't want the bad parts, only the good parts. They have found the American dream isn't so dreamy afterall, it comes with a high price. I think that is the reason for the sudden outrcy.That is why some are going back. Better to be poor as a family instead of rich and not. Money is not enjoyable if you are alone.
Time even mentioned that some families are getting so estranged that the spouses on each side of the border are picking up lovers. That the workers here joke around how they have to buy shoes for their wive's boyfriends.
Is this what the Mexican community really wants??? I imagine it has a very military feel to it.
Like I said, I am not unsympathetic, but it is starting to affect my way of living. If I am going to change my way of living for a hard struck country, it is going to be a country that is not just poor and oppressed, but where real travesty is going on. Like Darfur, the Sudan, the Congo. Where people really need are help. Instead of rescuing Iraq, we should be in those torn places.

En el avance de su informe anual, presentado ayer en la ciudad europea de Bruselas, la Federación Internacional de Periodistas (FIP) calificó a México como el país latinoamericano más peligroso para los comunicadores que profesionalmente abordan los temas de crimen y corrupción y precisó que en el plano internacional para los trabajadores de los medios de información 2006 fue "un año de brutalidad sin precedentes".

Has anyone considered the bigger picture, like maybe the governments are trying to move populations around, say the US would be the area for the surfs and then they'll (Government and elite) all move down to Mexico ( in paradise) whilst we are in a slave state? And yes it doesn't really matter what race you are in their eye's, youre just labor.
