I got a great idea. Let me write up a brand new immigration bill to deal with the border burglars.
Trust me. It will be great. The only thing is you will have to pass the bill to see whats in it. Sound familiar?

Since Mexico has broken their side of the treaty, we should reinforce the border with 2 divisions plus support. Any cartels get vaporized and job seekers get referred to the border patrol for green card applications.

Better stay inside LA Joedog or your fantasies may be broken, like your teeth.

They(you) couldn't possibly work so hard, they are way too busy breeding for USD.

Oh yeah, Mexico's biggest export is her babies. Gotta love those Familia values. They abondon their kids in Mexihell and by the droves here in this land. They are so wound around their so called family values, they are so racist, yet with their kids, anyone can care for them. Long as it lets them off the hook.

Oh, and don't forgt to call all AMericans gringo and Craker racists as we pick up your peices and support your offsrping and breeding habits. No doubt your Country would do the same for us, eh?

Bite the hands that care for yours in your greed for what will never be yours.

It is obvious you are grand Takers. Makers and givers, not so much. ALl about how many uncared for kids you can make to dump on all other races. You are known across the Globe, hell, the Galaxy for these abominable acts of desertion and abandonment. Times get rough and the first thing you dump are your children.
Probaly JoeDogs story. He was dumped here and too stupid to hold his parents accountable, so hate on the Charitable Americans. While boasting of some takeover from the SOuth.
If arms are taken up, who will flee first to the SOuth? Or attempt to flee North, but won't find themselves so welcome.

What a foolish comment...they are doing the jobs Americans once worked and would work again. They are working harder at depleting our free social services systems...I'll give you that.

Taco Bell is nasty, besides I thought Taco Bell was the Mexican phone company. Did you used to run wires and sweep floors there too before you illegally came to America?
