I agree with the OP!

I don't even think the concept of securing the borders needs to be that complicated. We don't even need any new laws or regulations regarding illegal immigrants.

All we need to do is enforce the laws already on the books.

The border patrol can't and hasn't for many years for a variety of reasons.

We should be calling in the national guard if need be because technically we should be doing everything in our power to enforce the laws we already have in place. We just don't see that happening.

It's like so many people don't want to charge illegal immigrants with anything other than deportation because they consider illegal immigrants innocent people just looking for a better life... It's as if Americans are worried that enforcing the law will upset Mexico or Mexican people somehow.

WHO GIVES A ****!? The laws are in place for a good reason. There are ways for the Mexican people to live a better life without flooding into the United States illegally. Maybe if all those illegal immigrants weren't so concerned with fleeing their own country they might actually be able to work together and change things for the better in their own country.

This whole issue is so ridiculous and our leaders never take it seriously enough to deal with the issue head-on. Presidents always talk about what they'll do and how their ideas will work but nothing ever gets done to resolve the problem. The american leadership has waltzed around this issue for decades like a kid on a circus carousel.. In the meantime, things have continued to worsen. If our leaders continue to do nothing, dissent will grow. Desparate times call for desparate measures. This is why we're seeing states starting to take matters into their own hands.

If the government won't enforce the laws already on the books, the states have to do it themselves in an effort to stem the tide of illegal immigrants. What else are they supposed to do? Desparate times call for desparate measures.

This isn't just about illegal immigrants either. It's about human trafficking, it's about drug smuggling, it's about Mexican gangs and drug cartels, it's about cutting this stuff off from our own country before it gets to public schools and city street corners.

Right on the money Bro....

Lots of the replies on this thread are nothing short of uneducated racism.
People seem to forget that immigration problems in ANY country are the doing of that countries Governments and it suits their political agenda to have such social problems.

All Americans - Ask yourself: Why is it that Bush/Obama does/did nothing about the southern borders?

Is it possible that it keeps the population moaning about the influx of mexicans and the loss of jobs can be easily blamed on this section of society?
Classic political deflection tactics takes attention away from the REAL criminals and it also creates a problem which thy can promise to address on future election campaign trails.... BINGO

Wake up people of the USA..... You are being PLAYED by your Governments and you suckers are playing right into their hands. how predictable you are, the PTB must be all sitting around a big table pissing themselves laughing at how this ploy works so easily throughout history, time and time again.

Remember hitler.....the jews, poles, gypsies - it was all their fault
Saddam - the Kurds - it was all their fault
Bosnia - The serb muslims - it was all their fault

the list goes on and on

Stop blaming the Mexicans and blame your President/Government.
Instead of setting up HATE threads on internet sites, get out on the streets and demonstrate. Lobby your politicians, You are responsible for your own life..
You want Change? Get out there and make a difference.

WELL, WELL, WELL Ladies & Gentlemen! I am simply AMAZED that on this web-site I see so much outright ignorance, dis-information, and well, such OBVIOUSLY EASILY INFLUENCED human beings
It seems pretty obvious, but just to a very select few, that THE POWERS THAT BE have PROVEN once again, just how EASILY the masses of minions are divided and conquered and reduced to spewing HATRED & HYPOCRISY & FINGER-POINTING...literally FROTHING at the mouth with blame toward their FELLOW HUMAN brothers & sisters.
It works so well, and it is so easy...when all of US should be banding together to focus on some REAL problems, we are here squabbling over the latest SCAPEGOAT, now that things aren't so ROSY in the GOD BLESS-ED U.S. of A...well, we really need someone or something to blame.
If THEY didn't WANT you, right where you are RIGHT NOW...ON ONE SIDE OF A LINE DRAWN IN THE SAND OR THE OTHER...Well, then they would have done something about ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION a LONG LONG time ago...
IT'S A GRAND VERSION OF THE SHELL GAME FOLKS...and so MANY of US seem to think we got it all figured out. HAH! Stop paying attention to the stupid GAME...what's really happening is NOT under anyone of those shells....SUCKERS!

I am BROKEN HEARTED...AMERICA is heading into the ABYSS...and it's CLEAR to some Americans, but much clearer to those from other places that watch America (PLACES WHERE THERE IS STILL A SPIRIT)...PAYBACK IS A FEMALE DOG...I hope we've enjoyed the "GOOD 'OL DAYS" here in the USA cause there forking over...and you can blame black brown yellow white or whatever...but its green the one to blame...and green, BLACKENS the heart.
Didn't anyone ever go to Kindergarten...did you ever share anything?

Yeah WHATEVER DUDE! My grandfather was part of the LA GAngster squad in the 1940's... you think that these are NEW problems...HAHAHAHAHA!!!
This has been going on for at least since he was born, and really looking back, since this country began.
Drug smuggling? Through Mexico? Was rampant in the 1940's. Gangs? Hahaha...
What a joke. Things are just the way they like them...and always have. WHO, in the end, do you think really profits from ALL OF THIS??? Follow the money. I guarantee, Pablo Escobar was easy to bring down compared to who really PROFITED from his work..."DRUG LORD" what a joke...
A completely SKEWED perspective of what's really going comes from focusing constantly on the symptoms, and not the real NATURE of the problem. That is exactly HOW we have been trained as SHEEP in America...follow the ball under the shell, place your bets...

The "trouble" with arguments like yours is that regardless of whatever divisive "tactic" is being employed, without one helluva fight (& then, maybe in spite of it), this invasion of America, this drain on the Treasury and out of our pockets will continue until we are bled dry and this country bears no remote resemblance to what it was 10, 20, 30 years ago. Parts of the city where I live bear no resemblance- NONE, to the city I grew up in. It is utterly foreign- even in a different language.
This is not some idle threat- some ploy. It is borne out in the healthcare/ PhRma bailout- to provide insurance coverage for people who are not even US citizens while some US citizens go without. The CNN story for which SpaceCadet has a thread is another example- where an illegal living in this country for 14 YEARS obtained financial aid *that US citizens cannot get because their place was taken by an illegal alien..

This isn't a game. It is very real. It has been at our peril that we didn't pay attention & take action on it long, long ago. The outcry against amnesty in 06 or 07 was a result of our experience with Ronald Reagan's amnesty. NOT. AGAIN.

All the wheedling, cajoling, shaming & rationalizing is never going to convince people away from what they know is right and best for their families. The people who are tearing this country apart are the ones who promote illegal immigration and the illegals who are invading & demanding more.

Regardless of the dressing of this post, and the OPs stated intent - the reality is that this is racism, pure and simple.

The nazis managed to convince a nation to consent to GENOCIDE off the back of similar BS, and I'm honestly amazed every time I see an article like this getting stars. There must be a lot of racist hicks in the US, and before anyone mentions it, we do have an immigration 'problem' here in the UK too. However, the majority of rational people can see that in comparison to where they come from, the UK has a much higher standard of living - you can't blame them for trying to improve their lot.

Every case on its merits; stop stereotyping, and above all, stop being so damn pedantic about what is 'yours', when in reality you had ZERO control over where you were born. If the world was suddenly reversed and Americans needed to seek a 'better life' in Columbia, or Mexico, or Afghanistan, or wherever, you can be damn sure they would be doing so.

I'm getting sick of all these self-avowed geniuses who keep spouting the whole 'the elite are playing you all like pawns' bit.

No kidding. We all know the elite/PTB want it like this, and want us fighting over things to keep us soo occupied to make their agendas easier. That does not negate the FACT that the issues we are fighting over are REAL PROBLEMS.

If a criminal breaks into your home to steal all your valuables and on the way out starts your home on fire, is the fire any less important since it is not the root of the problem?!

I am beginning to believe that people who think like this are all part of the elite plan as well. These people often think that since the elite want us to be concerned over it, we shouldn't. Well to not address the problem only makes the situation worse. Its a WIN-WIN for the elite.

We must face them on any front they present.

Great idea. It worked real well in Germany when they were trying round up all those Jews. Reward neighbours for spying on and turning each other in. I imagine it would catch on quick in the USA.

Make your case then, this is how people like you want things.

So in my dream all the illegal immigration proponents and illegal alien sympathizers along with the politically correct crowd make and pass laws in congress. Their are a few we call logical thinkers. They really have no say they are few in numbers but are vocal.

So the illegal immigrant issue finally comes up. Lt = logical thinker.

Sympathizer Bob:

Ya know these are good people just trying to make a life for their familys. So their are 15-20 million illegal immigrants here. I say we give them all amnesty !!!

LT Chris:

You know thats really not fair for the people who came before them who utilized the right channels to become legal citizens.

Sympathizer Antonio:

I agree with Bob, those who did it legally will just have to bite their tongue. We should give the illegals amnesty.

(and so it passes, current illegals are now citizens YAY!!!)

6 months later...........

Sympathizer Antonio:

Hey guys they love us and what we did 1 million more have crossed the border!!! What should we do?

LT Sarah:

We have to secure our borders and control immigration for security and population reasons.

Sympathizer Mike:

Can it Sarah! How is that fair to them? We gave the last couple million amnesty so these hard working poor mexican immigrants should get it too!

Sympathizer John:

I agree Mike it just wouldnt be right!! I vote giving them amnesty as well.

(and so the next 1 million get amnesty)

8 months pass.................................

Sympathizer Antonio:

Wow they just keep coming another million have crossed!!! What to do?

LT Josh:

Secure our borders please!

Sympathizer Bob:

I got a idea lets do away with the border, they are all hard workers and just want to get out of that cess pool. Do away with the border all together let them all come as they please.

Sympathizer Jane:

Great idea but we gotta be fair we gave all those others legal status so once we remove that imaginary line do we give all that come over legal status?

Sympathizer Mike:

Yes amnesty for all!!!!!!!!!

LT Josh:

But guys!!!! You're making a big mis...

Sympathizer Jane:

Oh hush Josh your just a racist stop spewing your hate!!

(and so it passes 63,000,000 of Mexicos 107,550,697 population decide to come to America and become legal citizens!!!! YAY!!!)

(3 months later..)

Sympathizer Antonio:

Guys we have been getting mail and pleads from all over the world!! Zimbabwe, Cuba, Liberia, Somalia, Ethiopia, Timor-Leste etc etc a billion + people wanna come they are asking to be americans!! What should we do?

Sympathizer Jane:

Wow some of those countrys are in way worse shape than mexico how can we deny them poor starving people entry? I mean at least the mexicans could get food some of these guys cant! But do we have room and resources?

LT Sarah:

No way!! The unemployment rate is higher than ever, crime is higher, weve already let to many

Sympathizer Mike:

Shhhhh why yes we let them in they are humans and remember we are not racists let them all come!!! In fact since they do not border us and the mexicans had a unfair advantage lets send ships, all our aircraft carriers to go pick them all up.

Sympathizer Antonio:

Yes the mexicans are no better than them are they? I myself would never be a racist lets go get them.

LT Josh:

People resources!! We cant save all the people in the world!! Its impossible. Land space and foo

Sympathizer Jane:

Hush Josh stop being racist. Do you expect us to say the mexicans can come over and give them amnesty and be unfair to these people and tell them tough luck?

(after almost 2 years of escorting all these people to america the US now has 1.6 billion people)

(20 years later america has 2.5 billion people and is on the verge of being a third world country. Food is in short supply. Not enough jobs. SSI is gone. 4 different languages are being spoken!)


As ridiculous as this scenario was it images the thought pattern of some of you pro illegalers. Ohh poor mexicans. How about the millions of others who live in places that make mexico look like Beverly Hills? Just cause mexico borders us that gives them the right to come over illegally while poor Wendimu is 6000 miles away and eating dirt?

The US cant allow everyone who is poor and hungry to come over! Its impossible we dont have the resources. So who gets to choose who is coming over and being legalized if we open borders?

The only way to help Jose or Wendimu and be fair about it is to stop fighting wars and use the money to help FIX their countrys problems and remove the corruptness.

So stop calling logical people racists who know its not feasible to save everyone by allowing them in. And also knows it would be unfair to the ones who didnt get in if we just allow a bunch of certain people in cause they are bordered with us. Its not racism its realism!

If you give the people who broke the law amnesty you must give it to all who want to come or your own favorite word racist applys to you according to your definition!!!!!!!!!

[edit on 15-5-2010 by mryanbrown]

If you are interested in founding out what criminal offenses ALL ILLEGALS are guilty of, just look it up.
If a person is in this country ILLEGALLY, by default, they are a criminal. Thus the term ILLEGAL.

You know i find it funny when i was last on here yesterday and there was only 6 pages, and now i believe we are now up to 14. Every freaking page is almost the same. If your for getting illegals out of here your a "racist" or a "disgusting human being" or "uneducated". When you move to a new country you are expected to conform to said country's way of living and to contribute, thats just common sense if you know how to think logically.

How would you like it if i was to show up at your front door and tell you, you need to start learning how to speak my language, that i don't like the music you play and that i want you to start playing music i like. Chances are if i showed up to your front door making these requests and statements, you would probably greet me with whatever your weapon of choice is and tell me to get the hell off your property.

You don't come to someone else's country to try and make it like the one you so very much wanted to get away from! You don't come here to reap the benefits that my family and many other families have died for without making some kind of contribution to my country, you have not earned the right if you are an illegal! Your stealing from me and many other Americans, and i promise it won't last!

Unless you live in or near a border state you really need to keep your mouth shut, because chances are you have no freaking clue as to what you are spewing out of your little pie hole. Born and raised here in Texas, i know whats going on and i have been watching it going on for years. To say that no one cares about this issue until the economy starts going sour is plain B.S. people here have been talking about this issue for years.

During the good and bad times of the economy, so that argument is not valid. The problem is no one has been listening to voice of the people here until recently. I can only hope and pray that Texas follows Arizona. And before you start flaming me and calling me a "racist" please know that my best friend is Hispanic and me and him have discussed this issue many times and we have always seen eye to eye, also i'm half German and half Jew. And yes to answer your question i'm always conflicting with myself, lol.
