You can’t reason with people who have a vested interest in the legalization of Mexican illegals. Common sense dictates the U.S. cannot, nor should we, be a safety valve for Mexico or any other country. If the citizens of Mexico are too cowardly to fight for change, so be it. Our citizens were willing to fight and die to make this country great; and I’ll be damned if I will sit idly by and allow scofflaws to destroy it.

Yeah, well I'm sorry to say that when your only solution to the problem is for these people to fight to change their government and economy that you're being completely unreasonable. What a joke.

Yeah how silly. Clearly they should fight to change America's government instead. Because nothing says realistic like demands that Americans allow every single Mexican with a sixth grade education, no skills, not a word of English and five children to come here and get subsidized education, housing and meals.

That'll work.

I reiterate: Americans are not responsible for making sure that Mexicans have an ideal country. That problem is Mexico's not ours. No rational human beings can possibly expect otherwise. Mexicans need to fix up their own country instead of attempting to screw the American taxpayer to suit their own highly selfish needs.

Who are you responding to? I know I certainly didn't make any of these arguments. Where is all of this coming from?

You'd be surpised at the number of Americans that I have encountered on the internet that are married to either a latino that was at one time here illegally or is of the latino culture in general that have become illlegal alien sympathizers. Do they get brainwashed by their mates? Many of them admitted that before they became involved with a latino personally their views were quite different. What are they being fed? Do they become victims of the body snatchers or what?

But that IS the only sensible, long term solution for these people, their country and ours.

It's what's known as having a "vested interest" which trumps any concerns about legality.

Sneaking into another Country and sponging off their tax based, social services is not a solution. That would be called theft and fraud. If not for the twisted meaning of the 14th the list of criminal activity would be even longer.

Yet it's okay for them to fight to change the laws of THIS country? Gotcha.
