I also have a 2nd solution that is not bad. have the federal government make a east to west coast canal from the pacific ocean to the gulf of mexico. make it a mile wide, 800 feet deep and with walls 500 feet high, plus put a 40 foot high steel fence at the top of the walls.

You're kidding, right?

That type of wall was erected on a portion of our San Diego border and it cut illegal immigration down to a trickle.

Congress needs to call an emergency session to rescind the law that Bush put into place several years ago considering the extent of this latest incursion by so-called unaccompanied minors.
I totally agree, it would help immensely!!! It won't be full proof, but it will definately be a big help. Then station border gun patrols high up....with lights all along the border.....

I've heard it's already been done in California and parts of Arizona? Don't know if that is true?

They have also got to put in effect, strict and effective immigration laws, along with deportation....

We waste so much money on other nations and silly stuff, it's time to take care of our own house and get it in order.

Pelosi, under the urging of the Hispanic caucus, now says that 2008 law needs to apply to Mexican children as well.

well, she can say all she wants, however, it is not in that law, therefore, it is not....she is as stupid as Cokie Roberts, honestly....how did they both get as far as they did?

All these illegals coming into this country for how long now? I remember being at the Jersey Shore, with neighbors, and coming back aross the bridge, we were rear ended by illegals from Mexico, who had no insurance, therefore, I remember how angry my neighbor was, and I was 15 years old? I remember him saying, "why isn't something being done about this". Back then it was Hollywood, who actually started hiring these people as house maids, lawn care, baby sitters, etc.

Then I heard about how both the republican and democratic parties would go down to the boarder and hand out flyers, while saying, "Welcome to America, Vote for me!"

Then I hear about how Police officers are not allowed to ask them, when they stop people if they are citizens of the U.S. and do you have any idea, how many of them drive without license, or car insurance, all of which are against the law.

Then, my aunt, who lived in California, while still alive, oh, say, 9 - 10 years ago, tells me, they cannot go out at night time, to a movie or to a mall, b/c it is way to dangerous, b/c of all the illegal gangs and she said, "It is not simply all Mexican gangs, it is horrendously about all gangs from other countries, Russian and so forth....

She also explains to me, that b/c all these illegals are going to the emergency rooms, and not paying their bills, hospitals are being forced to close down. So, now she and everyone else are forced to go to public clinics....?

But I wrote about this on here many years ago, and was called a lier?

So, then I hear from a girlfriend whose son sat on Homeland Security, about all the terrorists that are here in this country due to the borders being open. He got so mad, he stormed out of 3 meetings and finally quit. Then, he was blackballed, and I am unable to go into any kind of description, however,

Doesn't any one else here think about all these things and wonder just how far and how deep this corruption goes? I mean think about it....no one seems to be enforcing the law, WHY? WHY and yet, both sides (Republicans & Democrates) are constantly tearing each other apart to the public????

I mean, just for one moment, if you will, consider the whole of this lawlessness?

This is huge, huge....? Why? And then taking it a bit further, if this is happening in this country, what the heck else is going on?

Adding insult to injury, I cannot help but ponder, are they trying to bankrupt our country, close our systems down?

I mean seriously folks, what is happening here, and please think about his, the ripple effect of all this. I've heard now, the churches have opened up to these illegal children?

to me, this is not only mind botteling but scary? Why are they doing this to our country?

Does anyone else ever ponder this? And if so, what are your perspectives....
Way to start with a premise and the support it with a bunch of anecdotes by people who clearly don't know what they're talking about. Illegal immigration is indeed a complicated issue, but hardly for the reasons you (and so many other people here) enjoy pushing.

This constant flow of illegals is simply not sustainable.
Why do conspiracy theories and racism/xenophobia/rabid nationalism, etc. always seem to go hand-in-hand?

This entire subforum, and many others across the internet and beyond, is proof that no god exists. How could a supposedly perfect being create a species that is, in so many documented ways, unimaginably awful.

Not sure if there is any kind of agenda but the end result will be the same. We can't absorb the entire population that wants to come here The numbers will at least double every year.

The numbers are growing exponentially now.
And don't forget that the border patrol only catches a fraction of illegals..10-20%.

And they have reported 290,000 since last October.

Do the math....
