Only the top 5 newspapers? Out here in the safest suburb of Juarez they did'nt run that poll,maybe because we are the sixth largest city in Texas, or that we are roughly 90% mexican heritage. Maybe Texas does'nt want us counted.I'm just curious why it was'nt run here.

I would be curious to see if people's loyalty has more to do with their country or their race.

My bet is the numbers in El Paso would be lower, with many of its fine citizens choosing to be loyal to the country from which they fled.

our resources are being drained by people that are not American, what is so hard to see about that? If you are illegal you should be doing something along the lines of trying to get papers and quit expecting American to be your savior. If you were born in Mexico you should be there NOW trying to HELP your country dig itself out, not trying to bury ours.

the way i see it, just tighten the border to avoid spillage and give the people here amnesty, especially kids.

Most people that complain just do it to complain. Like the lady that states illegal immigrants arent taking her job but feels they are taking someone's job. That mentallity needs to change.

The same reason the national media isn't talking about all the killings in Juarez Mexico........the news is controlled and they only let you see what they want you to see.

If the rest of America knew what was going on down in El Paso/Juarez Mexico, it would make the people more anti-illegal immigrant and the news doesn't want that. Just like we don't hear ANYTHING that is going on at the border of Laredo, TX and Nuevo Laredo, MX......but I guarantee the local people know....just like we do here.

The news is controlled by the Democrats/Liberals. In El Paso, they have no choice but to publish what is going on, but they don't talk about the horrid ways people are being killed. That's the same reason that most of the national news media is dying and Fox News is killing the competition. People are leaving the fake news and going to real news.....and Fox isn't as good as it could be, but it's the best thing going.

Old excuses and nonsense. This country is being drained by your very own and you are too blind to see this happening. The affluent have taken us to our knees and have also made us believe that it is the illegals that are the greatest issue. Be careful how you speak of Mexico and its corrupt government because you will find yourself in those very shoes soon looking to flee elswhere so that you can feed your family. WAKE UP!

Thank you! Why don't people see that having these illegal immigrants here is just another burden on the taxpayers of this country? We work hard to contribute to the qualities that make this country great and all these freeloaders do is come over and get as much as they can for doing absolutely nothing! Now our resources are strained and we are in a recession. I say kick them all back to Mexico and let them be a burden on their government!

You are uninformed about how much illegal aliens are costing U.S. taxpayers.
Look at California alone.
$10.5 BILLION per year on illegal aliens.

Now what do you think?
Need more proof?
I wonder who pays for this in Texas?

Believe me, I don't want any Mexicans in my house or watching my kids! I cook and clean for my family in addition to attending school and working full time. If we all made a little bit of effort, we could take care of ourselves and not have to rely on Mexicans or anyone else.

You live in Arizona and you don't think illegal aliens are a burden on U.S. taxpayers?
OMG, you must either be a Democrat politician or you are an illegal alien yourself. Jajajajajajaja.
You have GOT to be kidding me right?

Most of the people KNOW that illegals are a burden on U.S. taxpayers, but the people that are pro illegal immigrant are either stupid beyond belief, an illegal alien or relative of an illegal alien.
And a Democrat.

My bet is that people would be loyal to their families. We have family in Mexico, and if you had any you would understand. Remember White Americans were the first immigrants to come to our beautiful land. Don't forget that! We only want what is best for our family, and if you would leave yours behind, then there is something wrong with you. Be a human being first and then judge. This law would only be against Mexicans, I can't see the police stopping an African American, a Canadian, or even the group of people who we are at war with. Then it would be politically incorrect!

If you are worried about money, what you should do is tell your former president that you don't go and bomb another country and then waste billions of dollars to help them repair. What the country spends on keeping illegals out is nothing compared to what our country spends for war and rebuilding other country. Why don't you go and find us proof of that?
ok wtf

i can see how they do burden taxpayers since illegals do not pay any taxes at all, and then you have those who come to have their kids here and go back and leave us to pay the bill. i am against that, but stop saying illegals take away jobs. no they do not. how many american citizens would actually sit down and pick cotton fields for 12 or more hour days? cmon now.. all the hard/dirty jobs are done by them because they're OPEN.. no american citizen would do it.

No, what we should do is hold the current president accountable for the 780 plus BILLION dollars he and is liberal Democrats have squandered in the name of “saving jobs”.
