I totally agree. Think about it. If the Mexicans crossing the border had opportunities that would improve their living standard, they would stay in Mexico in with families. Desperate people do desperate things and traveling to the US is a dangerous and desperate choice to make.
Exactly. There are no opportunities in Mexico, and crossing that border is not very difficult at all. Here in America, our children all have a wonderful and prosperous future!:)

yeah, but what most of you stereotypical people think about mexicans is wrong.
im a mexican and live here.
Its fine, were no poor people in little towns, we are'nt bad economically and our goverment does help us. The people who cross the border come from cartel towns or cities, or simply move because Mexico is expensive. plus we dont rob jobs or taxes, and its not fair that everyone thinks a mexican is some tan dude thats fat and wears a hat. We are just like US citizens, we dress normally and have big vities.

Ah, the proverbial sob story. These yarns are spun to invoke guilt.
On one hand the United States is a paradise. But, according to some groups the U S stole all of its SW territories from Mexico.
So which is it?

I see that the proven liar known as LA2YA as returned under a new name.

Let's remind everyone of your attitude concerning the truth. This was your response to a request that you provide a single racist quote by myself to back up your charge of racism:

"N O P E, I don't have to produce any statments for YOU ratsa** NOTHING, 0. Zero. Who are YOU to "dictate" to anyone to produce this or that ? Not to me. So run along, and hide under your rock reptile. Orale racist cracker-butt."

You're still a low-life, lying sack of shit.

Many Mexicans come from rural areas, living in shacks with no electricity, running water or even sewers. Crossing that border is like coming into paradise! Does that answer your dumb question?
some of the "illegal immigrants" had gotten permission from the american government to come here then when they try to come here their govenrment tells them they can't, from some of the people i know that i talked to they were not allowed because of reasons that if the american government used there would be protest and a lot of news coverage the reasons wouldn't be tollerated but because they are in a less liberal country they have to take it. We as americans have it very good and it seems that most don't realize how crule the world is outside our doors. If you had the choices of being poor and scraping for food your whole life, or breaking the law, how long would your family starve before you do something that isn't legal.

The filthy, disease carrying illegals do not belong in America. Let them apply legally and enter through the front door....like the hard working and industrious immigrants from Europe did last century. The USA doesn't need any more criminals and welfare cases. The Army should set mines along the Mexican border and patrol with attack helicopters. All immigration should be halted. The borders should be sealed. America does not owe every dirty beggar in this world a free lunch.
