American taxpaying citizens are being totally screwed over by "our" government, as we now subsidize illegal immigration, in particulary citizens of Mexico. This includes housing, food, and health care . Not to mention housing illegal alien criminals. Once a foreign national gives birth on American soil they are entitled (through their child) to all the benefits of an American citizen. Our government looks the other way. There are now between 12 and 20+ million illegal aliens in our country with no end in sight. Fight back. www.numbersusa.com

Mexico was the United States' 3rd largest supplier of goods imports in 2009.
U.S. goods imports from Mexico totaled $176.5 billion in 2009, down 18.2%($39.4 billion) from 2008, but up 257% over the last 15 years. It is up 342% since 1993 (Pre-NAFTA). U.S. imports from Mexico accounted for 11.3% of overall U.S. imports in 2009, up from 7% in 1994.
The five largest import categories in 2009 were: Electrical Machinery ($46.0 billion), Vehicles (cars and parts)($26.8 billion), Mineral Fuel and Oil (crude)($25.2 billion), Machinery ($22.1 billion), and Optic and Medical Instruments ($7.3 billion).
U.S. imports of agricultural products from Mexico totaled $11.4 billion in 2009, the 2nd largest U.S. supplier. Leading categories include: fresh vegetables ($2.8 billion), fresh fruit (excluding bananas)($1.9 billion), wine and beer ($1.5 billion), and snack foods (including chocolate)($1.0 billion).
U.S. imports of private commercial services*(i.e., excluding military and government) from Mexico were $15.8 billion in 2008 (latest data available), up 2.7%($415 million) from 2007, and up 100% from 1994 levels. Travel accounted for most of U.S. services imports from Mexico in 2008. 
Don't you have a trucking company to run or some long hauls to deliver. Then get to it and stop spamming every forum on Topix. You're nothing but a brain dead troll spewing the same thing (that you've obviously copied from somewhere else) all over Topix. Have you ever had an original thought. No, I didn't think so.

You are lucky the American government turns a blind eye to people like you. What have you done for your home country.. nothing you ran away. Now you think you speak for Americans, your pathetic and those like you are pathetic. You are nothing but users who abandoned your own country to scam Americans, Americans whose generousity has been abused.

How does my family history justify illegal immigration ? I have no respect for people who use their children to stay in America, that is the scam I am talking about. Immigrate here legally and contribute to society then I will shake your hand and welcome you. I am tired of "my" government giving away my country when the system is full of fraud and abuse.

Contribute to society :
Taken and edited post from Alejandro 
Thanks Alejandro for the good job keep it up ! Keep posting
 Just think of this facts :
- How many immigrants work for you in each moment during the day ( restaurants, hotels, lunch, clean all places, agriculture, construction, meat processing ...)
- Few thousand dollars a year go unclaimed in the IRS and the Social Security office. That money is what helping us and may have your pension in 20 years, or help the thousands of disabled people who can not make money because they can not work. Is free money because the Illegal immigrants don't want received this money.
- The 70% of work force with low salaries (7-10 dollars) without benefits is immigrants. Can you support a family complete with this small check? The immigrant can do that.
- Ask your kids or any child of a school, if he cares or knows of any illegal student in his class. The new generation of Americans understands that diversity is also, to respect others by not having to pay thousands of dollars in legal documents for legal entry into the U.S. embassies. 
- Did you know that some northern states, illegal immigrants arent Latinos, are Canadians

Did you know that most soldiers in Vietnam and received medals of honor were heroes are Immigrants
So which South American country are you really from, poser

"The fence has pushed undocumented immigrants further into remote locations where water and shelter are not readily available, which results in more deaths, Wilson said."

So I guess he agrees that the fence does work.

Exactly! We defend politicians, military bases, embassies, FBI and CIA offices with deadly force. Why don't we defend American citizens from criminals crossing the border? Every year thousands of Americans are killed or injured by illegal aliens and in every case it was preventable if the borders were secure and if immigration laws were enforced.
