Great point, NativeDallasite!

More CRIMINAL, UNETHICAL and DISGUSTING than the Illegals are the Employers of Illegals.

How racist. If we need more immigrants and it's questionable how many we need with the jobs leaving the country the way they are, we need a variety of immigrants from a variety of backgrounds. It's absurd to get them all from one country. At least if we're going to have massive uncontrolled immigration, we need diversity -- not raza racism.

not so. many people that cross at san ysidro have warrents already on them from other mexican states. everybody that crosses is "good people" not so.
my government wants illegal immigration. when the law breaks the law there is no law.
a union movement right about now would be wonderful.

When you give an undocumented Mexican a job, he works really hard and shows up the native born American.

America is a land of immigrants and our native born population is dying off and retiring. It is time to open up America to a large influx of new workers. I support allowing most of these people to come from Latin America because of the huge existing Hispanic influence already in America. It will make it easier for them to assimilate than someone from Africa or Asia who speaks a language few understand.

If there are so few of us, then how did we stop the last 2 Amnesty Blls?

BTW Immigrants and "ILLEGAL" Immigrants are 2 different things.

And that alone admits that Mexicans are not assimilating into America, they are assimilating into Mexico in America.

In fact - Asians and Africans seem to have no trouble learning English -- so lets bring in more of them.

Without illegal immigrants, I think there would be a huge job recession.
Dude, what are you smoking? The majority of people do not have college educations. Your arguments are not valid and have no basis in fact. I'm curious as to what the other 70%+ do for a living? I guess there's no way they're in competition w/illegals for employment. Here is a quote from US Census press release that actually backs up what I've just said:

In 2006, 86 percent of all adults 25 and older reported they had completed at least high school. More than one-quarter (28 percent) of adults 25 and older had attained at least a bachelor's degree.

Sort of like Physicians and violent muggers. Each one can "cut you open with a knife", but one has your permission, while the other does not....
