Mexico is a 3rd World nation. It absolutely is a poor nation for most of its citizens. You really have no idea what you're talking about. I've lived there, have you? There is no comparison to Haiti, but then again it's one of the poorest nations in the entire world, so there's little to compare it to.

You just said they were returning due to the economy... then claim it's about enforcing laws. If coming across the border to begin with wasn't a deterrant, why would more laws be so? This seems like a classic case where, "It's the economy, stupid!"

I'm curious, guys. In 1999-2000, employment was at one of it's lowest points ever nationwide (below 4%) and the economy was booming. If illegals are truly taking so many jobs, how was that possible? We had tons of illegals cross the border in the 1990s and early 2000s, so how was that accomplished if there just weren't enough jobs to go around? I'm baffled by this idea that Americans have lost more jobs due to illegals than to a very sh*tty economy in which companies across the board are not in the mood to keep or hire more employees. So I'd love for one of you to explain to me how low employment is possible at all given the illegal situation.

Granted, jbcmh . . . Mexico is poor, however, considering their natural resources, there is absolutely NO justification for their poverty other than corrupt and greedy leaders who, by the way, are extremely rich and live like royalty.

Don't we already donate billions to the starving children and families across the world? It makes more sense to help them in their own countries rather than to import them all here.

Who's talking about importing people? It's not like I'm flying a plane over to Africa and loading it up with non-white people and bringing them here to destroy your white majority culture. We're talking about people bring themselves. This isn't just some semantical nitpick, there's something fundamentally wrong with how you're thinking about this issue.

Exactly! Many of the people of Mexico are poor because of their Spanish elite government that doesn't give a damn about them. It isn't about a lack of resources or that their government can't create jobs for them. Of course many of those that are poor won't put off childbearing at a young age and get an education instead so they are partly to blame for their own demise.

At any rate it isn't our responsibility to allow them to come here and take our citizen's jobs and benefits because of all of the above.

We're not talking about saving the world. I'm giving you a scenario that matches up pretty much exactly to what we're talking about. Is it morally right to send children back to situations that will probably result in starvation, poverty, even death?

There is no excuse for poverty in America either, and yet we have it. And most of Mexico is actually middle class, but by our standards would be in poverty. And of course there is an element of extreme poverty that nothing in America can match.
