If denied oh well thats how it goes. I may be denied a loan but that does not give me a right to rob the bank.
Tinman, you are preaching to the choir. I don't question why there are criteria to getting into the US legally. I actually wish our government did a better job adhering to them.

My post was merely an explanation as to WHY people flock to the US illegally. I don't think any single person has the right to take matters into their own hands if they are not wanted here. Unfortunately, the floodgates are open and little has been done to curtail the presence of/growing population of illegals in this country.

For the record, TB, that is resistant and non-resistant strains, have been rising sans immigrants.

Check the public health records.

None of the politicians are talking about this issue. It's almost as if it doesn't exist. And i'm so sick of the polls which put "illegal immigration" low on the list of what is important to Americans during this election.

And it should be here too, we should be testing every single one of the criminals, if they have any disease whatsoever put them on a plance right away and deport them.

Heck, deport them all because they are all disease ridden and here to rape, kill and steal from us.

Even the Atlanta base center for disease control is saying childhood diseases we thought we had gotten rid of are coming back quickly, why? Because the Mexicans are bringing their diseases with them because Mexico doesnt require them to get any shots or be tested for anything.

Heck, yes DEPORT THEM ALL

But you see it is not JUST Mexicans we are dealing with, there are many other Nationalities crossing into our country bringing diseases and crime with them. I don't know if there is a break-down in numbers (who came from what country) but I do know singling out Mexicans is the main reason for most of the discord in this forum. It is ALL ALIENS we are having problems with. But it is true most come through our Southern Border, probably the reason many of us use the word Mexican when we should not. Just a thought.
