How do you stop the drugs when Bush's atty's put in jail by using false info the very border guards that stopped the drug dealer?

Maybe we should pay the Mexican gov't to use Mexican workers to build the border fence. That would bring jobs to Mexico and secure our border at the same time. Our position should be "we are not fencing them out but we are fencing us in".

What the hell part of "illegal" don't they understand? ICE did a raid in this city last week, and now we have politicians decrying the raids, saying that children were left stranded. What crap! So what? We're being sold out. There is absolutely nothing wrong with preserving America! Period. NO AMNESTY! DEPORT! You broke the friggin' law, so out you go. No argument! How do we raise our children to know right from wrong, when our own elected officials decide what laws that will or wont enforce for the sake of political agrondizement? NO MORE ILLEGALS!

Curious. Every time other countries have problems, it's always the fault of the US because we didn't solve the problems for them.

If South American countries are going left....let them. Stop the foreign aide, close the borders and let them fend for themselves. They will still blame us, but who cares.

....so they can't come and go as they please. Unfortunately, the "fence" is meaningless. We don't enforce anything on the borders...because that's what the border patrol is told to do. All they will do is destroy a fence. By the way....the company building the fence is Southern California is loaded with illegal immagrants!

I think we Mexicans do not need any fence at all,we will find the way to enter the US anyway to get a job. What we really need,is good and well paid jobs in our own country, and a really change of government who really cares about its people.

Bush sold us out. He makes promises to the Mexican Gov't and Mexican people? How about a promise to the American people to stop illegal immigration? Now they are going to let mexican trucking companies drive all over the US. I'm sure they won't be bringing in illegals and drugs.......You can kiss American culture and our way of life goodbye because we have no politicians with any balls. I'd like to see Americans protest in the streets. Maybe a few HUNDRED MILLION people protesting illegal immigration "might" get someones attention.

the fence is a smoke screen..to satisfy a few americans who are tricked so easy...any mexican who wants to come to usa and has a clean record...just applies for a visitors visa..flys to america..picked up at airport by friends or employer...then forgets to go home..stays and keeps working..hundreds of guys stacking quarry rock came that way..

PUNISH THE EMPLLOYERS WHO KNOWING HIRE WORKERS WHO CAME TO THE USA ILLEGALLY. PUT MONEY INTO THE DMV AND SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICES TO EXAMINE THE PAPERS/DOCUMENTS THESE ILLEGALS PRESENT TO GET LICENSES, SOCIAL SERVICES VIA THEIR CHILDREN. LASTLY, CENSURE THE BANKS/CHECK CASHING/REMITTING SERVICES THAT ALLOW ILLEGALS TO WIRE THEIR EARNINGS BACK HOME, ACQUIRE ACCOUNTS/CREDIT CARDS, ETC. DON'T LET THEM VOTE IN ANY ELECTION IN THIS COUNTRY!

Give me a break - this guy blames the US for his people leaving? Where is his blame? Maybe if they had jobs they would stay. I'm tired of this country being the whipping boy for every other countries problems. Damned if we do, damned if we don't.

It is true that the solution to world poverty is creating jobs where people live and building hope within community's. The millions of immigrants that did come into this country are sending money home to there family's, many of them that I know personally are having new houses built. I know a young lady that will be returning to her country shortly and she is going to try and start a business there. If it doesn't work out she said she will have to come back to the USA to make more money again. I think the solution is to increase money to sponsorship organizations not to trust the government to solve the problem.

in a ironic way we are to blame--or at least the enablers of illegal aliens

stop the exploiters and enablers from using and hiring illegal aliens and they will stop coming

But Bush the Wuss along with Kennedy the Left wing Lush

have their backs with the Chamber of Commerce hands going up them

I have a question for you and I hope you are able to answer it. If child sponsorship agencies were enhanced to help with this problem; plus if they were kept tract of to see which ones help stem illegal immigration. Also if sponsors were able to easily access this information before choosing an agency to sponsor through. Do you feel this would help? If Americans were encouraged to sponsor more children judged on the information that I just mentioned would this be one effective way to not only stem illegal immigration, but also go to the root of the problem in Central American Countries.

Good idea, Taita. It's called REVOLUTION. Your government has kept the people of Mexico in chains for almost 100 years. You will not have a chance to live with the freedoms we have in the United States until you OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT and enforce the RULE OF LAW.

Do you want to continue with no dreams, no wealth? Your country has more natural resources but the majority of the money goes to few in the power. When are you going to stop it?

Mexico or America should secure the borders. My feeling is neither will perform. Leaving the only choice to you and I.

To Gino: Here is the reason Calderon doesn't want the fence built. 30 BILLION dollars. Thats what his compatriots send back home annually. They won't pay their medical bills and force hospital closures, but their first allegiance is to Mexico. If I go to the Doctor, I'm expected to pay. Mexicans? Gratis. Think I'm happy paying almost six hundred dollars a month for health coverage when they get it for free? These people see the US as a convenience, and don't give one damn about us. Breeding like Rats, not paying their bills, and WE end up making up the difference. Calderon, get BENT! sTOP blaming the US for your woes, and intill some responsibility in your own people! We're fed up!
