LOL, wasn't Obama just there like a month ago talking about this?

By "there" I mean "in Texas, close to the border"

What's kind of amazing -- the open borders proponents and La Raza don't want borders closed even though so far it's THEIR people getting killed by the cartels in the USA, not our people. No Americans so far - but a number of Mexicans have been taken out by the cartels.

Like the one in Phoenix whose head got sawed off - but La Raza has nothing to say about that.

I doubt even that will make a difference. Illegal aliens have raped, maimed, and killed thousands on U.S. soil, yet our borders remain open. The cartels are just a more barbaric segment of the illegal alien population.

That's the whole problem with open borders and illegals coming as they please. ANYONE can be an illegal.

If there were better control and enforcement of the immigration laws, the employers would have to make some little attempt to hire Americans first - who really sees the problem in that?

And the employers would have to pay legal wages and benefits. Again - who can really see a big problem in that?

More work visas would be available - again - where's the problem? And immigrants coming on work visas have a legal job, can come in a safer manner, they don't have to be smuggled in by cartel smugglers, or hike through a searing hot desert. Why do the open borders proponents find all that so horrendous?
