Oh yea, and since you want that so much you can give up %75 of your pay check to pay for that . If our immigration policies were good, there wouldn't be a use for all that garbage.

We pay for over 100,000 of our troops to be stationed in Iraq. I would rather see them back on our soil, defending our nation against a problem that is costing every single American taxpayer a small fortune.

And there is no reason for us to pay 100,000 to the soldiers in Iraq if they shouldn't be there in the first place. You can thank our president for that.

I fully contend that a handful of illegals being shot as they cross into the US would prove to be quite a deterrent to such criminal behavior.
While I agree that we should do EVERYTHING in our power to stop illegal immigration, I don't think shooting people is something that should be done. Putting up a deterrent and policing the border with a sufficient number of qualified personnel and technology will do nicely.

Yes, IMO, he has screwed up about everything he touches. I voted for the guy the first time and I'll be glad when he's no longer President.

The Fence, currently under construction, is but one component of securing our borders IMO.

The border states, Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas, are very supportive of the "actual" fence and the "virtural" fence.

This fence will not be completed overnight. But, in areas where it is completed, there have been reductions is crossings -

How about instead of investing in the fence we invest into education so our children will not have to worry about losing their jobs to illegal immigrants? How does that sound?

How about stopping the flow of illegal immigrants to preserve the jobs we have now for our lawful residents and our children in the future?

How does that sound?

Which jobs are you inquiring about? If we all are properly educated we wouldn't have to worry about getting minimum wage jobs.

The point is - there are no jobs that legal residents of the United States won't do.
