I agree. We need a rational policy, not the "fences and machine guns" sort of stuff pushed by some.

Texas (and other states) need those foreign laborers. Companies and individuals should be free to hire whoever they want to get the job done.

Americans are:

Fat
Lazy
Rather be on Welfare than work
Do Not Want to Work
Do Not Want to Work certain laborous jobs
Biggest Drug consumer country in the World - so they don't work.

But you know what? When these mexicans become legal citizens, they'll be fat, lazy, druggies, criminals just like the rest of Americans.

As long as people come to this country legally and contribute useful skills and pay taxes then all is fine. Illegal aliens do not come here legally and most are consumers of tax dollars and deserve nothing more than to be punished for their criminal acts.

Odd you call it liberation when the land was sold to America by Mexico at full asking price. Land did not belong to Mexico anyway, belonged to Spain, who like in most of the Americas took it from the native indians. Since Mexicans and most Centeral and South Americans are all inbred with white Europeans and Black Africans they all need to give their land back to what few natives still exist.

If you believe the land belonged to "Spain" then by your twisted (non) logic the USA belongs to Britain.

Are you advocating a return of the USA to Britain?

Let us know, traitor...

Oh, wait, by your (non) logic, Britain belongs to the Romans.

How far back to we go this silly game?

I'll help you get your head around this. The USA does not belong to Britain, because we kicked their asses. Mexico does not belong to Spain because the Mexicans tossed the Spanish out (much as we tossed the Brits out).

After they idenify themselves, get a job within a reasonable length of time, say 120 days, pay a fine, and back taxes if they are, learn english understnd the merican Constitution, and swear allegance to it, then they can become citizens. Buy you and I know they will do none of that, so ship them home. In the case of Mexico, they are not here on student visas. The government has sent us their poor, and pitiful, and their criminal element. Our own government is violating the Constitution they swore to uphold. Time to send them home as well.

Buffoon, it is your twisted logic.
The land belongs to the original inhabitants, near as we can tell it is what the Europeans called Indians.
A simple history lesson for you is that the 13 colonies is what Britain settled with their undesirables, mostly criminals. Yes, the colonies were largely a penal colony for Britain with some others setteling here as well but basically it was a penal colony. Australia became their new penal colony after the colonists here rebelled and tossed their masters out.

The natives were stupid and sold their land for a few shiny trinkets, fools gold (because they are fools), and traded for disease infested blankets. If the natives were stupid enough to fall for this that's their fault. And if it wasn't the white man that bought the land some other group of people would have taken it. Let's face it, the natives are just plain dumb! They natives would rather smoke peyote (and see visions) and get drunk than improve their lot in life.

Hey if these protesters want to protest something worth while in Austin. Why not legalize marijuana instead of a bunch of lawbreakers. What the hell is wrong with this country anymore. They praise and give to lawbreakers and punish the hard working legals?
