Jesse, you're following the law by coming in through the checkpoint. Just do what the illegals do and you won't have those problems. Maybe if we start making Mexico financially responsible for the illegals that come through there, they may be more apt to take charge of the situation from their side. We can not enter into Mexico illegally without being thrown in jail. But they want it to be OK here. That doesn't make sense to me.

I don't think a wall will do any good really. Just enforce existing immigration laws, stop the jobs and freebies and anchor babies and we won't have such huge problems.

Appreciate the honesty. See my post for the snake-head analogy. The people seeking a better life aren't to blame. The people hiring them are. It's the issue no one wants to talk about when dealing with this.

Mexico isnt the problem as much as we are. And i dont mean that in some ridiculous neo-liberal way. I mean our policies of immigration enforcement (lack of) and prohibition are literally the problem.
