We will clean it up and Mexico will eventually have to take responsibility for her people. Yes we have slacked in the past , but now more then ever we see what is not working and what needs to be done.
Whenever you put a superpower next to a third world country, you will get illegal migration just like Europe gets it from north Africa.
.
It is us who needs to change our desire to hire cheap labor, stop consuming drugs, and change our laws to restrict subsidies to the children of legal and citizens! Why is this so difficult to do? Sealing one of the border and not the other shows we are hyppocrites that the world will use against us! Canada is becoming an open valve for both the good and bad.

If you are so by the law then why you endorse your government invading other countries, overthrowing other governments, killing 200,000 people, contaminating the environment with nuclear waste from your submarines, dumpling depleted uranium in Vieques, allowing a nonNPT member acquire nuclear weapons (Israel), conduct arm trafficking against the laws of other nations (Contras in 1980's and Mexico today), encourage child slavery in other countries for the sake of profits, etc.
.
And even here, you got states overstepping the Federal in matters of international issues.
.
So are you selective about which laws are you obedient and others you turn your face the other way? First learn about yourself before judging, critiquing, and defammating without including everything!

On a sociological level, it will change the entire demographic equation from a dominant European cultureóto that of an entrenched and intractable poverty for tens of millions that arrive from cultures mired in poverty and illiteracy. It means degraded education, endless welfare, disenfranchisement and crime. It will destroy Americaís middle class as wages and jobs degrade to the lowest wages because of so many millions of people willing to work for so much less.

We will see more cities like Detroit fail as Americans flee further into the middle of the country and further north.

What word best describes third world countries like Haiti, Mexico, India, Bangladesh, Indochina and others? Why canít those countries rise out of their poverty? Why canít they succeed? Answer: illiteracy. Today, Detroit, Michigan, suffers from endless immigration while Americans flee. Detroit sports a 76 percent dropout/flunkout rate in Detroit public schools.(Source: Brian Williams NBC News, June, 2010) CNN reported that 7,000 students drop out of Americaís high schools every single day of the nine month school year; one every 26 seconds; total of 1.2 million annually. Folks, that stands as a monumental number of illiterate people. That number illustrates our devolvement into a third world country.

I have young kids and the USA was a definite know for school.
Europe is only slightly better.

You may possibly be part Native American Indian if your Father is or was one. But Native Americans have no blood lines with Mexicans at all. They are Asian. And have the same blood lines as Eskimo`s. Indians from Mexico are not in any way related. Many from South of the border try to use that claim to further their cause. But that is all it is. A pathetic attempt to advance La Raza or Reconquista Agenda. So Knock off the BullSh!t. Azzw!pe.

This will only further more generations of illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is bad for America and even to illegals in general.

Every "Dreamer" has cost the U.S. taxpayer $10,000.00 for every year they attended public school. The money they are paying for "deferred deportation" does not even cover the cost of the paper work.
