Why return? His plan is not working here so he needs more support across the border?

Hah, biting satire their, BigD.

It's bi-national issue, you certainly need the Mexican governments help no matter what your outlook is on immigration policy. Mexico could, if it so wanted, refuse to retake people the United States tries to deport. Improving aid for their poorest through social services might make them stick around than try to come here. And of course, this is unlikely but they could build a fence on their side, though if we can't do it, heh, I don't think they'll be able to either.

"His plan ..."? You don't know much about current events in the USA, nor about the legislative process ... given your remarks.

His top priority since being elected was immigration reform.

Seems like you don't know much about current events.

He wants reform, but so do a lot of others. I can count on one hand the national figures who say out and out no reform at all. Most of the people I hear have disagreements over what should be in the reform, but not about reform itself.

That would be interesting - a country refusing admittance to its own citizens.

Yea it tickled my fancy too but I've heard criticism in immigration debates where some Republican says "get tough on countries that delay or decline to take back their citizens." That implies some countries don't take em back, so their citizens just rot in our immigration jails.

And of course, the Guantanamo detainees are in a similar problem, but on terrorism grounds, their countries don't take them back when the US has cleared them or refused to charge them.
