Can we please see some reputable source of your theories/proposals? I can post page after page of source material. In fact, I have. Please do a search of my previous posts.

You are correct. It's impossible to have a reasonable debate when only confronted with circular reasoning and rhetorical questions that are only followed by more of the same. Kinda makes ya dizzy....

immigration laws need to work with real world situations. prohibition of alcohol in the united states resulted in more criminals, because the people wouldn't stop drinking. so we repealed the law, but still enforce reasonable laws concerning alcohol (no driving, no purchasing by minors, etc.). if we used the same logic with immigration, we would understand that people are becoming criminals because they wont stop immigrating. that is not solving any problems. what we need to do is allow people to immigrate, and work with them. enforce reasonable laws, but banning people who cant afford (or afford to wait) is not reasonable. this is proven by the consistent influx of immigrants, regardless of the laws.

A little more of this drivel and I'll close the thread.

If you want to get back to the original question, fine.

Here's one link. The most recent I could find. Look it up yourself though, there's dozens of links.
thanks for the source. although i dont know how the fbi can come up with those numbers. if you dont catch them, that doesnt mean theyre not coming.

you can not debate logic? i guess that means your solution isnt rational. you should exercise a different perspective and see if that steers you into a rational solution.

We've met my criteria. Bickering similar issues in multiple threads is getting a bit repetitious and boring.
