Another sob story about illegals.
They put themselves in that position. Don't make us feel sorry for your plight. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

You come here illegal you should get deported.

Illegals are a threat to American jobs, increased taxes, our culture, natural resources, increased crime rates, our national security, uncontrolled population growth, overcrowded conditions in our schools, jails and hospitals. It isn't just a Republican claim but a fact for all to acknowledge. As for unflattering things being said about illegals what do they expect when they don't respect our borders, violate our immigration laws and contribute to all of the above?

A "better life" almost always means Medicaid and food stamps for those children.

In Mexico someone can have a better life but it requires some self-responsibility, discipline, self-control.

Even with it's problems, Mexico has a growing middle class. It has free public schools, some very fine universities. However in Mexico to have that better life, one must stay in school, obtain some job skills and a job, and delay the start of a family until that point, and limit family size to what the couple can afford.

Here the better life doesn't include any of that. Almost no illegal bothers buying health insurance, or thinks about waiting to have a job and an education before starting a family. We're attracting Mexico's would-be welfare class, because here they can expect to be given their "American dream" of food stamps, WIC coupons, housing assistance, free meals at the free schools, no responsibility needed.

The unemployment rate of the USA is far higher than that of Mexico -- so it's clear that sky high unemployment isn't influencing what they intend for a better life.
