Just poor logic. Not all Mexican s are criminals. Your "facts" don't prove what you imply. You have no clue how many of those 200 will wind up criminals.
Oh yeah, and you're racist, but you already knew that.

According to the clear guidelines published on the Internet and updated by the Obama administration in mid-June, there's an easier way to cross to gain entrance to the United States: simply step right up to a border crossing and tell the officials that you have a "crediblee fear" of persecution or torture. Use that exact phrasing and you may be able to enter the USA while you await a hearing before an immigration judge…a process that could take years.
"We are being overwhelmed."
Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, "This will swamp the system."
"To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the past," he adds. "There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don't want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail."
"There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in."

Mexicans, Chinese or Martians. It doesn't matter to me. If they've crossed the border illegally in the past or are here now that way? They are felons by definition and only Obama's 'gracious forgiveness' can or will change the outright criminal status.
Walking up to the border and asking for asylum does not involve crossing the border legally or illegally. If asylum is granted then they cross the border legally so, what is the problem?
A sudden influx of illegal immigrants from Mexico requesting asylum is overwhelming immigration agents in San Diego, forcing agencies to rent hotel rooms for some undocumented families and release others to cities around the U.S.
Documents obtained exclusively by Fox News show Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been paying for hotel rooms for dozens of recently arrived families to relieve overcrowding inside the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa, Calif., processing centers. Some ICE employees are working overtime and others have been asked to volunteer to work weekend shifts. “Duties include intake, placements, transports and release of family groups and unaccompanied minors,” according to a memo obtained by Fox News.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Requests for asylum in the United States have nearly quadrupled in the last five years, mostly due to claims by immigrants coming from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, according to internal figures from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services obtained by The Associated Press.
According draft testimony for USCIS Associate Director Joseph Langlois that was to be submitted for a congressional hearing on asylum requests last month, USCIS received more than 19,119 asylum requests through the end of May. The agency anticipates receiving more than 28,600 by the end of the fiscal year.
According to the testimony, during the 2009 budget year the agency received just 5,369 such requests.
