Do you want our government to engage in a mass deportation? That won't happen at least until Mexico's oil wells dry up.
If the government would simply enforce our laws, most illegals would self-deport. We have to make it unbearable for illegals to live in this country.

Mexico is ticking us off. They would cry if there remitiance money was cut off.

Gas prices are going up fast now. Whats some more pain. It would hurt Mexico much more.

The exodus of people out is not good policy no matter how much the Mexican government believes it is. The big billions of dollars pouring in in the form of remittances might seem like the best get-rich-quick scheme going for a country, not only does the large impoverished and illiterate class leave the country for good, many of them send large amounts of American money back. Sounds like a win-win. However all these people running are often leaving behind young children, their elderly, they aren't building any infrastructure, paying taxes to build schools and hospitals, or creating jobs.

The children they abandon grow up with problems, often grow up on the streets and in gangs. The families might get remittances for a while but there are no guarantees they'll keep getting them. When the remittances stop - then what? They're worse off than ever.

Juarez is a good example of that. No one has any long-term committment to that city, and now many thousands of them are up and abandoning their city. They dump their servants, close up shops and restaurants and stores, leaving their employees and servants to figure out what to do next without the paychecks and jobs. Many houses sit empty - in fact entire neighborhoods are mostly empty, the abandoned houses make great places for gang types to party and hang out in.

Google Earth already shows many of the effects of the great out-migration. A city quickly dying.

In answering the student, Calderon said the DREAM Act, which he referred to as “tough comprehensive immigration reform” would have been a good step in the right direction of dealing with illegal immigration in the U.S.
Sure.....the DREAMact would have worked great....for you and your illegals. But it would have done nothing in reguards to the "interest of the people" of THIS country!!!!!!

We're the enemy? Then why are they so eager to come and live here? I don't see many refusing US government handouts or refugee status and aid.

Haven't you heard they have come to take AMERICA back without firing a "Shot'...............................
Finally Communism has found the way how to conquer and transform America without firing a bullet!

Here the recipe for destruction..........................
1) Erase our borders
2) Let millions of desperate illegal aliens come in without control and without love for our Constitution
3) Give them driver’s licenses
4) Let them continue speak another language different from English...no assimilation, no integration, silent invasion!
5) Let them vote, legally or illegally, they already are voting or they will vote very soon.

This is exacatly whats happening!!
