True. Those 11 million illegals will also become "anchor babies", which means they'll all have the right to bring in at least one more Mexican. So really we are talking about 22 million Mexicans, otherwise known as Democrat voters. That's 1/5th of Mexico! They'll then vote to open the floodgate, completing our "civil union" with Mexico.

It might be cheaper just to set up social service offices all over Mexico, providing them with food stamps, welfare checks and ObamaCare. That way when we go totally bankrupt, they won't have to take the bus back home.

This is total insanity. Why don't we all just send our savings, ready cash, jewelry and valuable personal goods to them and save them the trip up here as well?

it will not be secure until not one illegal aliens can get in,something those who support illegal aliens will never agree to. face it they cannot get elected without illegal aliens voting for them.

The border will be secure when NONE of them can get jobs (because the government fully enforces employer documentation laws)

No jobs; no money.

There should also be a documentation requirement to obtain housing.

Should some HORRIFIC event happen within the US and people NEED to run south to cross the border (say, some asteroid or something), do we REALLY want our escape route SEALED?? <just saying>

Hey, how about this:

Let them all in, and you can go to Mexico (since it'll be empty), set up government and create a world class economy. Then they'll want to go back. Then you come back, and on, and on, and on. LOL

Too much trouble. I'm just going to quit work and get in line for my free stuff along with everyone else. That's the way it has always done.

This has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. Mexicans seem like fine folks to me. But our system now is basically socialism and that has never worked. Unlike past immigrants, they're being offered free stuff they can't get in their own country. Who can turn that down?(I wouldn't! Would you?) That's OUR fault, not theirs.

The problem is we're already nearly bankrupt and we can't afford it anymore. Now we'll just go broke all that much faster and with some catchy Latin music to dance to while we collapse! It's bad enough that the liberals are ruining us financially, but now they want to hurry it along by importing millions of poor people.

As I said, it's pure insanity.

It would be GREAT if they would secure the border. Then we could quit giving out Welfare, Foodstamps,Medicaid to the Mexican Illegals. But it won't happen,Obama will continue to lie about closing it, cause he needs the Mexican vote.

You sound like an intelligent person unlike many that post their psychotic blather here. Couple comments:

1. While "they" may be coming here for "free stuff", I think the effect of the American demand for illegal drugs, and subsequent flow of billions of dollars south has done much to de-stabilize Central and South American countries. So much so that the average Juan has no real choice but to try his luck north of the border. In effect, the drug cartels have created a state of war, especially in Mexico, and thus your average Juan and his family have become, in effect, war refugees, and any "free stuff" they get is icing on the cake.

2. While Democrats (Liberals) may not being doing enough to expel those already here, I think it's actually the Republican party that's trying to bring even more into the country. Consider that in the latest Immigration Reform discussion, the 4 Republicans were trying to get a provision whereby up to 400,000 additional "guest worker" visas granted. At the behest of the American Chamber of Commerce who wants access to cheap labor. The Democrats and Unions, to their credit, wanted no additional visas issued as part of the proposed bill. They eventually compromised at up to 200,000.

No doubt about it. The Dems want voters and some Republicans want cheap workers. It's the everyday middle class in America who will get screwed.

McCain is a clueless RINO and I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him. He's being fooled by Obama, who has absolutely NO intention of closing the border. He'll just use executive orders to torpedo whatever is agreed upon anyway.

As for Mexico, it's an oligarchy, run by a small elite. They've discovered that the infantile & naive liberals who run our country are willing to take in millions of their ignorant peasants (I don't mean "ignorant" as pejorative), so they're going to send them to us. It's like a pressure-relief valve so they can continue to squat on their fellow countrymen like a fat toad while avoiding any real reforms.

Why pay for structural reform or improvement in Mexico when the stupid gringos will take your poor and feed, clothe and house them? It's a no-brainer! You certainly can't blame the poor peasants coming in from Mexico. They're just being used by all sides.

If I was them, I'd be heading for the border pronto - and believe me they will be too. That just shows they can see the writing on the wall. Ignorant & uneducated they may be, but that most certainly does not mean stupid or lacking in motivation!

It's kind of too bad we can't afford this. But, alas, once here the Dems will use them to vote in even more free stuff and we'll fall apart at the seams. It's inevitable.

Secure the borders.
Shoot to kill ANYONE attempting to cross it,
regardless of age or gender.
Let God sort 'em out.

democRATS actually want the borders open.
They need the votes form the illegal Mexicans.

Furthermore, democRATS don't care if illegal Mexicans murder 20,000 American citizens every year, as long as they can put them on welfare and get their votes in return.

20,000 murders a year committed by undocumented Mexican killers. That is an amazing statistic.

Especially when you stop to consider that there are only a total of 14,000 murders per year in the US.

No point on commenting on anything else in your post since you just make stuff up.

The majority of undocumented workers have no problem finding jobs. We do not need the protection of a union. We work hard and provide for our families both here and in Mexico.
