It's absolutely absurd to build a fence to keep illegals out of the U.S. Why? It's not practical. Instead, allow for free flow of movement, but only allow American citizens access to federal & govt benefits: public schools, public healthcare, licenses, permits, retirement etc... Everyone else will just have to go elsewhere. Since non-U.S. citizens are not covered by local & federal laws, we can implement resources ousting them that would be illegal on everyday U.S. citizens.

Your thoughts.

If states keep passing anti illegal laws they will leave on their own. As they are doing.
If they go to the sanctuary states let them have em!
The Gravy Train is leaving and they aren't on it!

Fences make good neighbors. Mexico can get over it and the people who don't like it can get over it. The gravy train is slowing down now and hoipefully the parasites will leave the country because we do not want them here sucking the teet of the American taxpayer. They should go back to their own countries and fight for changes there and stop being cowardly and sneaking into a country where the majority of the citizens do not want you.

That's the issue. We need to make it absolutely impossible for non-U.S. citizens to suckle the teat.

Absolutely and I don't care how they go about it. I want it stopped. I am sick of my tax money pauying for non-citizens. I don't even like my tax money being used for legal immigrants because they should not be allowed into this country unless they can take care of themselves, an d that includes healthcare for themselves and not Medicaid or or any other freebie out there.

yeah I agree the Fence is a bad idea.. we need a big huge wall with a moat.. one the rivals the great wall of china.. we can call it the great wall of America.. and some mamby pamby Russian can come here in 40 years and demand we take down this wall.. would that not be irony?

We need a wall like in the movie Escape from LA.. if you have not seen this movie rent it.. it's entertaining.

Why not go all the way? Let's just annex all of Mexico and build the fence/wall/moat at the narrowest point down there towards Guatamala and Belize somewhere on that isthumus btwn the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific.

Mexico has oil too ya' know.

You got that right. I remember applying for my ex's green card and we had to prove assets in excess of $100,000 to prove he would not become a public charge.

You must one of the very few that have to prove that because we have tons of legal immigrants in this country who get SSI and all kinds of other crap that they should have no right to at all. We won't even get into what the government gives the damn illegals.
