[quote=nativeDallasite;2185448]Money.



Because they think they can make more money in America. It's greed...and a bit of laziness...since instead of trying to change their own country through a social revolution, they're just coming to ours and stealing from us. Gracias, amigos.[/quote]

Since when has supporting your family become greedy? They know they can't support their family well in Mexico. Mostly everything in Mexico is priced to the dollar and people don't make dollars. Lazy? Oh spare me. Again, it is not the peoples fault the country's economy is as it is, it is the Governments. And even that is changing for the better.

Gee, I dunno... if you're so desperately poor that you either a) need to leave your wife and kids behind to go work in the Great White North, or b) need to send your sons to Amerikkka to find work to support you, maybe having "no" kids or "less" kids could be the easiest route to "not being poor?"

LOL . . . TriMT7

LOGIC IS NEVER PART OF THE MASTER PLAN!

If a man cannot afford to feed TWO kids . . . have a few more for kicks and look around for sympathy?

You know where I stand on this, I want the problem fixed, but I respectfully disagree and think our politicians and corporations are by far the biggest part of this problem.
*shrug* If the illegals weren't streaming across the border voluntarily, this problem wouldn't exist.

But do you agree that it's OUR responsibility to change our country for the better? If changing America for the better is OUR responsibility, why shouldn't changing Mexico for the better be THEIR responsibility? That's intellectually lazy and just another excuse to try to tear down my position. It's pretty weak if you want my honest opinion.

Why should ILLEGAL immigrants get any kind of benefits that are paid for by LEGAL Americans? These ILLEGALS are law breakers and have proved that by sneaking into our country. Giving them aid and support and benefits is like rewarding radical Muslims who kill innocent civilians . they should all be rounded up, jailed, fined and deported with criminal records to wherever they came from and let their own countries pay for their sad existence.

Try not to fill your mind and heart with evil wishes and thoughts, it'll only make you feel bad and attract bad things.

Something should be done yes, but don't wish it with a bad intention
