I can't seem to locate my bleeding heart after watching this crap. I think of all the people I know right here in our community that are losing their homes and have already lost their jobs. I think of the tent cities that house so many of our people that have no family to fall back on. Why the heck should we feel so obligated to feed Mexico when they hate us no matter what we hand them? It is never enough.

Geez, his employer demanded to see his papers, him and his family being illegal aliens decided to go home.

What a heart lifting story, another group of illegal aliens back across the border where they belong.

Man I could watch these videos all day long

They got problems living back where they belong?

And that is any problem/concern of mine?

Do these illegal "migrants" think they hold a monopoly on hardship? My son's father-in-law will be out of work in September because the factory he has worked at for 18 years in the UK is closing down all of its operations. His wife, an experienced professinal baker, can't find work in her field and is now working independently cleaning other people's homes. My friend who lives in Uganda was chased by government police a few weeks ago. They wanted to arrest him for WALKING to university instead of taking the bus. The bus companies quadrupled their prices, becoming too expensive to use, which caused a strike against the company. Those who refused to continue using the buses and chose to walk were being arrested and then were told that if they didn't take the buses they would be banned from attending the university. How's that for misery and unfairness? These illegal Mexicans need to stop with the ridiculous sob stories.

Read this and try to cry for them:

Desempleo en México | El Economista
Moderator cut: English only, please
For those who didn't learn their Spanish yet as you've been instructed to do -- those are unemployment figures for Mexico.

The first is comparing a 5.2% unemployment rate for the first quarter of 2011 with last year's first quarter unemployment of 5.3%. The second is regarding Mexico's falling unemployment rate. 4.61% in March compared with 5.38% in February.

Americans would envy the low unemployment rates that Mexico has. These sob stories are almost a joke, but the sad thing is that high unemployment rates are not lowering the immigration rates, immigration rates went up in 2010.

I don't feel bad for those people. They're illegals, that means they're criminals. There are 3.5 million homeless people in the U.S., 1.35 million of those are children.

National Coalition for the Homeless

Homelessness matters more than people who are deported because they broke the law. There are also mexicans whom migrated here legally. This wouldn't have happened to this family and others like them if they had actually come here through legal channels.
