You do not have the right to trample into this country and then tell US how it should be run.

The COST of treating half dead border crossers in our emergency departments and ICU's (because our government is nice and decides that is the right thing to do) in AZ, TX, CA and NM far outweights any positive economic impact these people contribute to the economy. And who pays for this nonesense? The AMERICAN TAXPAYERS. Never mind how much we have to spend on maintaining a border patrol. And how much money we lose yearly because of the drug traffic from Mexico.
Wow Zero IMPACT. You sure, I thought they had to reroute traffic. Causing the cabbies to get higher fares. LOL Well that and the hospitals had better service for the non tax burden ppl.

Hence the Illegal status. They take alot from the goverment. Free healthcare. We don't even get that. And they use our tax dollars when they go to jail.And they cost us money to ship them back home.

Right, and the list goes on....we can't build enough schools for the our citizens (and I am including the legal immigrants) and yet we have to school the ILLEGALS
It would be cheaper in the long run if we COULD ship all the ILLEGALS back, if they would only stay there!

Hi,
What about this idea?

If illegal migrants are needed in the US and the money they send home is needed in Mexico, why not let them stay? Make it a commercial transaction. Spend the money on a system where the US bills Mexico for its services. Tally the cost of educating, policing and treating every one of their citizens, and direct debit it from Mexico's current accounts in the States.

Even if you couldn't track undocumented migrants, you sure could come up with a pretty good estimate. And can you imagine what Mexico would do once they see the bill?! The Federales would be rushed out to build their side of the border fence.

Not if they want to stay in office and regain the Presidency in 2008. We have to keep on them. Keep writing to them. Make them listen.

We would eat just fine...

I am all for having a guest migrant worker program where people can sign up for the growing season, come and work and then go home.

Maybe some of our fat lazy teens should do some of the work around in this country too - would not hurt! Did you read the article that said 1 in 3 teens was overweight and now these kids are getting hardened arteries?

I am not for people from Brazil, Mexico, Cuba pouring across our borders to come in here unannounced. It is wrong. It negatively affects our national security that people can slip across our borders.

These people have no loyality to the US.. What is to stop the bad guys from coming across this way - or worse - pay some Mexican to come over here with a bomb??? Or god forbid - anthrax or a dirty bomb?

I`ve often wondered why we can`t have prisoners out there doing all the undesirable jobs. It would make things cheaper because farmers/government could pay a lot less than the illegals make (they can pay with time, supplies, etc). It would give prisoners a chance to earn work credit, and would not encourage illegals to come over and work. If they tried, maybe they`d go to jail and end up working anyway, but not making any money.
