Many of them seem to be arguing it is racist or xenophobic to enforce our borders, and to send illegal immigrants back home to their own countries.
I usually just hear name calling and personal attacks from those who support illegal immigration. Lots of accusations of bigotry, racism, xenophobia, small mindedness, nazi-ism, you get the drift.

The idea of expanding the US to include mexico has been thrown around before I remember seeing somewhere (sorry can't remember the source) that the US would like to move the southern border down to Gutemala. This has a practical side because it would be a much smaller border to patrol.
How about making the border the Panama Canal? It would be like a giant moat. Yeah, thats the ticket.

When there are almost as many Mexicans in the US as Mexico than a border with Mexico makes little sense. Right now there may be 60 million Mexicans/Americans in the USA with 105 million in Mexico.
In your opinion, could this be the reason the US administration
has been so lax about its border with Mexico -- has been reluctant to impede the flow of Mexicans into the US -- and has sweetened the pot for them via medical, education, housing, etc ?

I pose a question to you. If I cut my hand, what color is my blood? If you cut your hand, what color is yours? Our DNA is remarkably similar. We're members of the same species.

And yet the same people that cry about constitutional rights are turning a blind eye to this law's violations. Things have gotten so bad for these constututionistas that they are willing to sacrifice their principles to keep out illegal immigrants.
