How about the USA imposes a moratorium on ALL visas from Mexico until such time as the border with Mexico is secured.

Think that may "raise the consciousness" of legal Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans regarding the illegal immigration issue?

Think that might get their attention?

For the pro-illegals who will probably hiss racist and you're JUST against Mexicans - it's the border with MEXICO that's the main issue AND 70% of illegals are FROM Mexico - so suck it up.

if you think that will raise Mexican consciousness you are sadly mistaken. Try this instead:

- Not close but seal the border

- Automatic death sentence to anyone caught smuggling drugs across the border

- Automatic death sentence to anyone caught smuggling people across the border

- American companies caught employing illegal aliens, minimum fine is the CEO's salary times 20 for each illegal employee. Fines collected are to be divided amongst the American families who have had a loved one killed by an illegal alien. Also all illegal aliens shipped back to Mexico.

- Illegal aliens caught trying to cross the border are put to work cleaning up the trash the previous 13 million illegals left on the ground. The collected trash and illegal aliens are dumped back in Mexico.

- The illegal aliens working here now get offered a chance, go back to Mexico and we will contact you when an opening occurs for you to apply for citizenship. If you don't want to go back voluntarily you will be forcefully returned to Mexico and never allowed back in.

- Three strikes rule, if caught a third time for attempting to gain illegal entry to the US they are deported to whatever country the illegal decides, payed for by the Mexican government.

How about we impose a moratorium on all visas until the U.S. unemployment rate is 0%?

Sure we do. People from Asia first travel to Canada on some sort of visa, then cross the border into the U.S.

Don't derail. We can have commerce between Countries and a secure border if we actually cared to have it. Or should I say, if our Govt cared to listen to the majority of it's tax payers.

That would just increase illegal immigration. What good would it do to punish the people who follow the rules anyway? How about we put a moratorium on all alcohol in the United States until people stop getting killed by drunk drivers too while we're at it...

My GF is from the Philippines & came directly to the US on a working visa 2 years ago. She is about to be granted immigrant status. Why would she need to go to Canada first to sneak into the US?

Your statement doesn't make any sense.

Mexico is the BIG problem & you know it.
