Is it just a coincidence that Mexico has brown people in it and Canada is mostly white?
Could you see the logic of people thinking this is racist/ethnically biased?
Do you want to know why? Canadians are not protesting against us, draining our systems and trying to make us live the way they do. I dont care what color a person is, this is about protecting America and it's citizens, not about keeping people of color out. Come legally as my families did and they way so many waiting are trying to do. Illegals are no better than the people waiting to do it legally so why do they act like they are and deserve more?

terrorists come in both ways, and as soon as they realize how easy it is either way, we are done.

It is worse on the southern border because they are as much of a threat to us as the terroists are. And their numbers far out weigh the terrorists. If we want to stop terrorists and illegals, we have to close both borders.

I don't like the wall being built either. It is uncivil and headed in the wrong direction.

You do realize that Mexico is trying to reform those old immigration laws right? So actually they are headed in the right direction....humanity.

I do think Mexico needs to take some of the people patrolling the Southern Border and Patrol the North for their own national security.
September 5, 2007
Dobbs: Mexican president's blatant hypocrisy:
NEW YORK (CNN) -- Mexican President Felipe Calderon Sunday demanded the United States surrender its sovereignty, abandon the rule of law and accede to Mexico's inherent supremacy.

"I have said that Mexico does not stop at its border, that wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico. And, for this reason, the government action on behalf of our countrymen is guided by principles, for the defense and protection of their rights."

Calderon protested the U.S. government's increased raids on illegal employers of illegal alien employees and work site enforcement. In what is little more than a faint nod

Calderon told the Washington Post more than a year ago that he believes laws are not a relative concept, nor subject to a personal concept of justice.

Show me a source.

Or are you saying that illegals are terrorists? Because if so, this argument serves no purpose if you actually believe that an ally and trade partner are sending mexican terrorists to the US. Based on what Miborn keeps on posting, it almost seems like he believes that the Mexican president is a terrorist.

I think you are getting a bit delusional in your patriotism, sorry to say.

Show me something solid, not just speculation.
There are plenty of solid reports of Canada having terrorists though, but let's spend the billions on keeping that latin invasion out...

America does care about that border.. The Canadian gov is doing a great job to do their part in stopping illegals from entering both ways.

Canada is a multicultural, multi-ethnic society that welcomes immigrants from across the globe.
Not surprisingly, people from the south-Asian countries, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh have also migrated to different parts of the country.

Among the top ten countries where immigrants to Canada originated include China, India, the Philippines, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Iran, S. Korea, Poland and Russia.

I hope that this helps.

2 questions:

We are at war with terrorists right?

Terrorists were found by the US Government to be in Cananda:
Jihad Watch: U.S.: Canada is terrorist haven
Quote:
Canada has been branded a "favoured destination for terrorists and international criminals" by the research arm of the U.S. Congress.
If terrorist were found in Canada, why are we securing the border with Mexico?

My answer is: Political scapegoat for losing the war on Terrorism.

I'm sorry, but.... I didn't realize tens of thousands of Canadians were streaming across the border illegally everyday through well defined smuggling routes and systems like they are SOUTH of the border!

Terrorists...not Canadians.

It sounds like everyone here no longer cares about the real terrorists and Mexicans are now the terrorists. Keep believing what you are fed by politicians and the news, and continue to blame Mexicans for the problems of this country.

Again Mexicans have been coming into this country for decades, this isn't new.
