I see your point, illegals=drugs -again, generalizing- but history has proven that when things go bad in Mexico you get more inmigrants, so if you wish us the worst you know what to expect then. Masoquism on you part?

This is Barakoeconomics. Give our money to rich CEO's, government officials, banks, foreign governments, etc... There is not one person with any intelligence that thinks this money will make any difference and in the meantime destroy the financial status of the future of this country.

Ignore the problem just like we ignored the middle east and then their problems blew up in our faces. Now were bailing out Iraq at the cost of "BILLIONS" of dollars every year. When are you going to stop thinking small and look at the bigger problem down the road. For years we fought to defeat communism on the other side of the world, and now it's breathing in our own back yard. Keep ignoring it and soon the tab will be a lot more. You want to help? Then start keeping an eye out on your own children and your neighbor's children who take drugs and take responsibility.

You are truly an insulting person, i have not left my country, work an honest job and have my children attending school and doing what i can with the money i get working hard, please do not generalize,there are bad people everywhere, i wish your city never experiences first hand what my city has gone trough last year in terms of violence (1600 death, including children and women) my president told last year at a conference that in this vicious circle :"...the United States is contributing with it's own millions of drug addicts that keep the demand high, and Mexico with the deaths ..."

Turn in drug dealers. No second chance, unless they go to war against drug selling countries for 3 yrs tours.

We cannot even diminish to use of drugs here in the USA, what makes the government believe all this money is going to solve anything in Mexico. If we can't physically control our own southern border, money certainly isn' going to do it for us.

If we did what the Chinees did in the past, we may even save tax payers money in other areas. Every year the government would gather all the murders, rapest, repeat offenders, and drug dealers, and execute them in the public square. We would save money in the prison system, rehab, security system, Housing, medical feild, boarder area (anyone with drugs coming accross would know), and probably a whole lot of areas in the government we can't even think of. Unemployment would go down. School system may even turnout better students. Children will be able to play because fags would be on the once a year execution list. There is a silver lining to this method.

The only thing that stopped the corruption and violence of alcohol prohibition was to end prohibition. 85 percent of the "illegal" drug market today is marijuana sales. End marijuana prohibition and end today's corruption and violence.- Your great grandparents would tell you it's the ONLY way.

There will not be a spillover.This war will be just about over by the end of February.The rift raft is getting wiped off the face of the earth as we speak.....The New Linea and the Cartels are working together to clean this mess up .The new war will be against the Crooked Politicians in Mexico DF,.They will be prosecuted for corruption or wiped out.They must not stand in the way of deprivatization of OIL..OIL would create all the jobs and refineries needed to bring most of the illegals back to Mexico for those jobs,not to mention food and factories to produce Goods for the people in those jobs...It will be DONE
