After the waters subside, how about digging a 100ft deep trench along the border to keep criminal illegal mexicans out and to help drain storm runoff.

Can't you just read the article for what it is. Why do you have to insert your small-minded opinion?

Did you trip over yourself in your haste to rush over here and post your hate? What a sad, pathetic person you are.

Why would that be racist? I find it quite patriotic. It says nothing about legal American citizens, and performs the same function as a fence.

Or are you one of the simple minded people that equates law with racism? That seems very racist to me that you would feel enforcing a federal law would only affect one race. Very racist. I'm ashamed of you.

Go relax and have a taco or something. I am just against illegal criminal scumbags invading our nation. Scumbag Illegals kill 2,000 people per year and cost good, tax paying Americans billions to support.
They need to be rounded up like animals.

Cause idiot repubs have us spending 5 billion dollars month protecting Iraq borders as we baby sit the Shia and Sunni Muslims they demanded we liberate.

How big of fence would one month of Shia Muslims liberation build? Oh I know, about 50ft and it would stretch from Cali to Texas...with cool motion detectors, and 20,000 for border agents to support it.

What a freakin waste.

You would cut off your nose to spite your face.
Refuse to get tough on illegals because you are mad at a former president, as if they relate to each other in any way.

You have a form of mental illness.

The Arizona bill targets Mexicans only. And other states are proposing similar bills. So it does affect only one race. Hence, the proposed bill in Arizona is racist. But not to worry. The DOJ is suing Arizona. LOL!

Oh reeeeally? And how does the bill target Mexicans specifically?

Should be interesting to hear the court case. The feds suing a state for doing the feds' job.

When all is said and done, the real "criminal" is the one who harbors hate and ill will towards others. By dehumanizing certain people and seeing them as animals, you justify your hatred, but it is still wrong. We all will have to answer to a higher authority.

You need to be rounded up and hung by the cahones! You have no place discrediting a race of people who are having hard times right now with the flooding. You need to get your trout boat and help them across...

Why should the U.S. be the only country that allows illegal aliens in without consequence?
Just try that in another country ... say Mexico.

Who says legal American citizens think they are the only "ones" in the world? Only you cook fringe radicals!

Sorry skippy but the real criminal is the one that breaks the law.
It is illegal for a scumbag mexican to come into this country illegaly and whats worse is so many of these scumbag mexicans commit crimes. Theft, rape, and these Illegals kill over 2,000 per year. Every year!

How can you support these scumbags?
