Actually, it is a combination of the above factors along with others that cause illegal immigration.

It boils down to supply and demand. For years our econonmy was booming. There was a demand for labor that exceeded what our country had (or was willing to do) If there was no work here, no illegals would come...

The loose borders don't help, either. But if theres a will theres a way. People will find a way to get in. You have to realize that.

Once they are here its hard to get them out. Its not just mexicans...chinese and african illegal immigration is in every major metroplitan area in the US

<quoted text> You are right about some of this. But you need to understand the DIFFERENCE between LEGAL Mexican(Any Immigrants)Immigrants and the 10-20 MILLION or MORE ILLEGALS who are in the country. Few people actually "Hate" Mexicans as you put it. But if you live in a Border City, hell most any city, we get tired of MILLIONS of our dollars in tax money, being given to support them. They get benefits that not even people who are born in the U.S. can get. And yes, whether they are Mexican, French whatever, when, if they come to OUR country LEGALLY and make a life for their families and themselves, then WE, most Americans don't have a problem with that. We just do not want to give OUR money to support them for life and all they really do is complain, because WE never give enough. It's always just more, more, more. So yes, we need NO tolerance laws, policies towards ILLEGALS. Enforcement needs to be increased everywhere and businesses that hire ILLEGALS need to be fined, arrested , put out of business if necessary. So if more of the ILLEGAL ones are going back to Mexico, it's about damn time.
Yes well said and no one here dislikes the Mexicans who stay in their own country and try to make something of it. We admire them.

It's those coming who demand everything be provided in Spanish for them, who have no desire to abide by our laws.

Maybe, at best, one out of a 100 might go back to their country of origin. The rest will stay and
wait for the "Messiah", & Pelosi, & Reid, to provide them with amnesty, driver licenses, citizenship, more free services, benefits,(inc. healthcare/colledge tuition, etc., etc..
Illegals will simply wait it out so they can belly up to the rewards counter and order their family sized "rewards" meal. And in turn, the democrats will have millions of new voters to support them in upcoming elections.

If you're a "change" voter and happen to wonder about just "who" it is that's going to be paying for these "rewards" meals, just look in your mirror.

I am all for illegals going home. But I wonder how many of you will start digging ditches, building homes, paving roads?

Agreed, just check what country is the fattest in the world, not just for eating wrong but beacause of lazyness.

I also guess "The Wall" construction will be slowed, Obama also wants to build 1000s of miles of roads, bugdet for those projects should triple if they hire legal workers, so the recession will be increased...

The Secretary for Homeland Security, America's chief immigration enforcement officer, Michael Chertoff, lost the illegal aliens working inside his home. Maybe we are really starting to make progress.

If anything it will rid this country of people who don't want to be here in the first place. To them Estados Unitas is just a paycheck and for some of them an opportunity to get on the take with the social benefits programs. What we need is Work permit program for the things Americans won't do like pick crops or other manual labor. This way they come for 6 months then leave and a new group can come in and keep rotating. The other 25 million will go back home to Mexico.
Jaded, I think your brain is jaded. Lesson 1: Mexicans DO want to live here. Lesson 2: Middle Eastern (mostly Iranians) hate this country and are the ones talking bad about this country, neverthless don't leave.

Hello? Are you aware of huge rising unemployment in the USA? Do you realize that housing bubble has busted? The cheap labor brought in by the truckloads to build McMansions that sold with sub-prime loans is no longer needed.

Maybe the Mexicans ought to go home and pave their own roads, build their own houses, dig their own ditches. That country is one huge mess.

Kind of funny to use the argument that we need to bring in millions of third world types from a country with no roads to come and build some for us.

Lot,
I think you've spent too much time in the Sun and crouched over your foofy cocktail. Mexicans who want to live in this country apply for legal status they don't sit here as an illegal for years on end using the social services of this country and flouting it's laws all the while depressing wages for American citizens. Any White or Black male who tried to get a framing job in this country would be hard pressed to do so since the Mexicans have cornered the labor market and suppressed wages to the point that it's impossible to make a living.
Middle easterners are a mix of cultures and have a litany of grievances and arguments but at the end of the day they are Americans who will fight in their homelands for our side. Another thing don't mistake their cultural trait of whining and arguing about everything to be a symbol of hatred towards the United states

I think there's three possible reasons for this:

The US economy is getting worse (I think most likely)
The Mexican economy is getting better
The US is full of nationalists

Ahh to be scolded by the brits is like being potty trained by a puppy.

The economy of the entire world is in a bit of free fall
The Pakistanis who used to do your dirty work aren't going back no matter how much they hate the Brits and love Jihad
The Brits are still crying over their lack of influence in the world these days. It's rare that you don't meet an egotistical limey who thinks he knows best yet knows nothing at all

As I read this article, I noticed that it spoke of "Mexican Nationals", not specifically "illegal immigrants." In fact, one of the individuals is leaving the United States so as NOT to be illegal. Kudos to Mr. Espinosa.

"Nationally, 1,809 Mexican immigrants filed for the exemption between January and August" -- I suspect that some readers believe that "Mexican" + "immigrant" = "Illegal immigrant" Not so. Our country is made up of many legal immigrants from many countries, including Mexico.

We have a ways to go before we are a nation that is free of prejudice in its many forms.
