ICE is a Bush sham! They arrest illegals at plants then congress have these arrested workers replaced by workers brought in from overseas who will soon become illegals all over again. Our government is destroying America with thier greed. WHAT HAS YOUR ELECTED OFFICAL DONE TO HELP OUR COUNTRY OR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? God please step in and help our country. Please give americans the wisdom to wake up before its to late. I love my country and it hurts every day to see how our president and congress is destroying our way of life with thier greed. I WILL VOTE FOR RALPH NADAR THIS YEAR AND PRAY MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WILL JOIN ME. I know the illegals won't they love those running now.

"In another year, we could be at the end of the era of illegal migration because of all the fear," Ruiz said.
Hallelujah!

This whole mess started thanks to a LACK of fear of being prosecuted, jailed and deported.

Here's hoping a little fear will go a long way.

You Bush-Haters will blame him for everything, from global warming to the bug in your soup. Get over it. ICE is doing the same thing that INS was doing long before Bush. This just shows me the intelligence level of Nader supporters. You probably should have said Obama or McCain had your vote.

Oil is at $117 a barrel, and Mexico just under Canada is America's biggest supplier of oil. What the American people and our government,and the Mexican people need to do is get the corrupt Mexican government to share its wealth with its people.

"If there is no work there," said Perez, whose sons have stopped sending money from Reno, "then what can we do here?".....

How about going back to Mexico and protest on your own soil the way you protested on American soil? DEMAND your Government give you what you need. DEMAND your Government pay for your children. DEMAND your Government school your children. DEMAND your Government give you health care. DEMAND your Government give you housing. Yea, that's what you should do. Whatever you do, just get out of the United States.

To enter this Country is a PRIVILEGE. It is NOT a RIGHT! No ILLEGAL ALIEN has a right to be here. Clear enough?

You're so very, very right!

It is painfully obvious that the Mexican "government" has has more than the required funds to develop state sponsered infrastructure initatives, which would not only create a large number of jobs across the country, but would also get money into the hands of residents in those locations, who in turn would spend it in local markets, bolstering the local economy. Economics 101.

The opportunities and resources are all right there, but the profits are stolen instead of invested in the country.

Maybe we should have asked the Jewish people to relocate Israel to a portion of Mexico after WWII. Mexico would be a wealthy, prosperous nation and the Mexican people would be much better off. And Israel wouldn't be locked in this eternal conflict.

There! I just solved the Middle East, illegal immigration to the U.S. and boosted the American economy! I deserve a cookie.

Well said Delware Bob, the only thing I would add the Mexican people will need help from us Americans in this matter. And what I mean by that they do have a clue how to fight a corrupt government like theirs, where as by the hard work and sacrifice of the American people, we have made this country of ours the greatest on God's green earth.

I suggest you have ur women start taking birth control so you won't overwhelm and run out of resources. That is what you have done to yourselves. And btw; you people need to take responsibility for straightening out the corruption of your own government. Running away from your problems should make you all look cowardly. And we don't need any cowards here in America.

Here is the difference: H-1B visa holders ARE NOT ILLEGALS. I do agree that we do not need them. Write your Congressmen, Senators, Bill Gates, who is pushing for more visa holders to take our jobs away. Don't buy Microsoft products. Don't buy imported goods. Don't shop.

Homeless and jobless? This is NOT their home and these are NOT their jobs.

P.S. I was jobless, I did not, however, resort to breaking any laws.
