If you wish to become a Mexican, all I can say is be careful what you wish for.
..but until you get IT, here are a few more tips:

* Another requirement would be for you to have about 10 kids.
* Should you decide to take your family to WalMart or Target, your youngest son must learn to cry and wail like a siren for at least 15 minutes.

Well, first we need to establish what Mexico does to illegals crossing from Guatamala and points south. You can also google the Mexican stance on illegals, and what happens to those caught.
Mexican government whines and blusters about how we feed, give medical treatment, and transport back illegals caught, but have no aversion to shooting those crossing their southern border, and imprisoning without food or representation those caught inside.
If you still want to become a citizen of Mexico, you need to relax your attitude about honest bribery, and realize that even after you bribe your way through the process and receive your citizenship, about 1/2 the rights and benefits of born Mexicans will be withheld from you interlopers by law.
Mexico does have an excellent process for employing the poor and removing the dregs----they send them north.
I do have several well educated Mexican immigrant friends who went through the long and arduous process of becoming U.S. citizens legally.
You should talk to one of them and ask how they feel about those who enter illegally and get benefits that they, as citizens now, are unable to qualify for.
I can assure you that those who went through the process legally have a MUCH stronger stance on illegals than the common citizen.

The best of both worlds can be had by keeping your U.S. citizenship, and "buying" a retiree status in Mexico. The bribes are reasonable, the process short and sweet, and the benefits are good. You only have to prove a couple grand a month income per couple (deposited in a Mexican bank) and meet the age requirements ( 50 or 55, I don't remember offhand) and a blue collar retiree with a minimum income can retire in comfort in any of hundreds of expatriate communities throughout the country.
Outside the resort communities, a single person can retire like a noble on 3 grand a month with housekeepers, gardeners and a cook.
That is my intention, but if you wish to try, I highly suggest a few months holiday to see if you can shed your northern way of thinking----wanting things NOW, aversion to shelling out a few shekels to the local police, flushing TP down the toilet (it goes in the trash basket), drinking water out of the tap, and the unattainable attitude of sanitation in anything.
Clean? Mostly, but sanitary, not. If you can give up your attitude about Montezuma's revenge and hepatitis, and learn to take siestas you may enjoy it.

With all due respect, I understand each and every point you made in your post.

The unfortunate fact is that THEY don't.

A big "thank you" to all the idiots in here for being SO predictable. Throughout time, whenever things get hard economically, people blame immigrants for their woes. I'm sure it happened to your ancestors even. Of course people will risk their necks to get to this country. Wouldn't you, if you were them? Someone in your family was once in the same boat (literally, in your case) at one time, so you wouldn't even be an American today if they never decided to pack up and leave their poor old countries. Americas a land of wealth and opportunity and as long as that continues we will ALWAYS have the less fortunate coming from all around to seek a better life. The real villains in this story have walked off with billions of dollars (stolen from you, the tax payer), even going as far as receiving bonuses and severance packages that would set us normal folk up for life. all while sending the country into an economic tailspin. We don't see them though, there all probably on some island somewhere, sippin on a pina colada, so why don't we just blame Juan and Pedro standing over there in front of Home Depot?

Living in Mexico is actually very nice in some ways..

As for the OP, your point would have been better received by someone (me) if you hadn't grouped "Hispanics" all into the same group with illegals. I also hate it when other nationalities are left out when talking about the 'illegals' subject.

I agree with where you were going, but you failed to win me over with how you got there.

nice guys do finish last indeed.... lets all become mexicans haha, wouldnt it be funny if mexico couldnt keep americans from going to mexico and actually staying there.

As an American of Mexican descent I have to state the following.

The sooner we all become Mexican, the sooner we would all be able to migrate to Canada.

Wow, this is a pretty offensive line of thinking, eh?

You're absolutely right, illegal aliens have it the best. There's nothing better than waiting in the ER for 12 hours because your kid has a cold. That's definitely worth not having a monthly insurance payment. And then there's the automobile credits! I hear they're giving all those defunct GM cars to illegals now too.

They sit outside Home Depot looking for work because Americans know to find them there, and are happy to pay very little money so that these illegals can feed their families either here in the states or back in Mexico.

I'm not saying we should be light on illegal aliens, I think they should be sent back to their countries of origins when they're located. But thinking they've got it easy is extremely naive. Thumbs DOWN for you!

I live in Arizona, so obviously I hear a LOT about illegal immigration, etc. I do know some Mexicans who aren't legal, and sure, they are pretty good people, hard-working, take care of their families, BUT, it does bother me that they, in a way, have more luxuries than I do- a LEGAL US Resident from Canada. My family works just as hard- hell, my mom is an elementary school teacher.. my friends' families who were born in America? They struggled more than we I do find it unfair and unethical that illegals have better benefits than legal US CITIZENS.

I appreciate the OP's comments and found it REALLY funny... very creative lol

This video is for all those who cry racist when someone tries to show the other side, for all those who speak of the poor coming over the borders. No one wants to see another human being suffer in any way. Fact! This video shows the homeless and hungry of our own legal citizens. These are the faces of different races, ages and backgrounds. These are American citizens.

Coming out of our tax money. We can't afford to look after legal citziens, but we are paying this out to "illegals"? And this makes sense?

I haven't read this thread (because it strikes me as incredibly ridiculous) but I will say this: if you want to become Mexican then find a local identity black market. Trade identities with somebody else. You take their Mexican identity; they get your American identity.

This is the most common way to go about it. Hope you have enough cash to support yourself in Mexico, though, because I hear that life as an illegal immigrant is not as fun as some people seem to envision it.

Now you all know how to do it. There's plenty of identities for you; and plenty of Mexican's aspiring to be American who would love to swap identities. Put up or shut up. You were "semi-serious," right? And if you weren't being serious, then any point you were trying to make is completely invalidated, as per the basic axioms of logic (unless you make a fallacious logical leap).

welcome to the wonderful world of Earth, where humans take advantage of what they see. If you don't like it, you're going to have to close that loop hole, and with it, illegal aliens. Until then, it makes sense to erase your existence here, go to Mexico, make up a new identity, get a citizenship, and come here new and with better care. If you don't like it, close it.

hah this reminded me of how my boyfriend's sister is a model, and she has a very hispanic look even though shes native american, and i guess a bunch of people want to hire hispanic "ethnic" girls, so she said her last name is "Hernandez" and they actually believe her...

I mean im sorry but how effing ignorant and dumb are modeling agencies?

the funny thing to me is that America was built on the principle of immigration. give me your tired, your hungry, your poor.. sure, these people should go through the proper channels to enter our country legally, but i seriously doubt that crying about it on the internet is going to fix anything. maybe we should look for a better approach.

I suggest a move down here to South Texas to begin with?

I would also suggest that any/all who have NOT experienced the "reverse discrimination" that living in a predominately Hispanic area can cause to do likewise before they offer up liberal opinions regarding rights and expectations?

On Monday: minding my own biz,returning home to my ranch...piece of chit truck in other on-coming lane blows a tire and spins out,landing DIRECTLY in front of me in my lane.
I do a Jamie Bond and manage to fast steer my truck around the offending vehicle while damaging one of my own tires in the process (I had to go up on two...we rodeo often down here,LOL!)

Unhurt but rattled,I pull over to the side to haul on my asthma-inhaler and catch my breath.The NEXT thing I know,a middle aged Hispanic guy is POUNDING on my window yelling at me in Spanish "not to call the police..."
He keeps pounding,I lock the door and ignore him planning to simply drive off asap, I am annoyed and refuse to have a screaming match in Spanish with an obvious idiot at this point,plus,I can't breathe all that well.

I had no intention of doing so as we were not technically involved in an accident and I could already SMELL the potential drama but as he didn't SPEAK ENGLISH,had an UN-REGISTERED and UN-LISCENSED vehicle,and NO DRIVERS LISCENSE (two other young Hispanic guys saw the whole show and stopped to check up on me,they talked to him and told him in a not so nice way to go about his biz and leave me alone)

Guess WHOSE fine ass would have been no doubt had been on the line if I HAD dialed the phone???

I am required to carry insurance and have a liscense/ be responsible,it apparently is his God-given RIGHT to drive an un-safe vehicle at the same time on the same road without any accountability.

The good thing about all this is if God freakin' FORBID I were not an exceptional driver and HAD hit his vehicle smack dab in front of me,he would no doubt have become my new "BFF Forever" in the health and welfare department financially was well....

So...y'all come on down here and live a spell before you start in with the "poor people don't have any rights" and how someone must be ignorant if you DARE to tell it like it is BS"
Please? Live it for a while and then we will chat again.

Trust me: I could go on for an hour but this just happened so it's fresh in my mind,LOL!

But we ("WE") have made it soooo easy for the latin's...

When was the last time you picked up something at the grocery store and instructions were in Dutch? Are you asked to press 1 for Polish? Can you watch 15 TV channels in Russian?

WHY have we (again the WE) made Spanish the Official Second Language of the USA?

Why arn't the Spanish Speaking - um - 'immagrunts' - forced to Learn and Speak English - like the German, French, Italian, Romanian.....folks that want to move here?

Geesh - Why not move here and get health care, money for doing nothing etc when you don't even have to put out ANY effort?

Sure...I say go for it..but then you have to fill the other requirements as well..

Become a minimum wage laborer...

you know ...
stand in front of home depot and loko for jobs such as...

load wheelbarrows...
pick strawberries...
any back breaking work us regular Americans dont want to do...

then there are the other requirements...

sleep in the bed of your cousins pickup truck...
and of course share that pickup truck with ten of your siblingswhereever you go...

I would like to see us "regular" Americans do these things...riiiight..

Im going to assume this thread is more about closing the border...

I completely agree...
