Scootertrash61 is the only one here who makes any sense.

It is real simple they come here for a better life, like many of your ancestors did and the only thing that will really work is if the US backs off of keeping Mexico down and we prosecute employers who bring them here. Why prosecute the poor slobs who come here to feed their kids and their Mom's?

Most of our ancestors came in compliance with U.S. immigration laws at the time. There is your difference! No, both the employers and the illegal employees are equally guilty! They were feeding their kids already in their homelands. Most were not starving so rid yourself of that stupid propaganda. They just come here because our jobs pay more but that doesn't give them the right to violate our immigration laws.

Try again.

Mexico is not poor. Its per capita income is ca. $14K a year.

Yes; there is a huge gulf between the rich and poor but; it is the responsibility of the (mostly) 'brown' Mexican people to step up and demand their rights from the (mostly) White elite SoB.

Besides; obesity is a problem in Mexico these days---------not starvation.

Is that why Mexico is officially listed as a developing nation? Because it's not poor? Is that why it still has a large starvation problem, more so than here? Because it's not poor? You have funny def. of rich...

Mexico is upper middle income, meaning it's not Sudan...but it's not Switzerland either. It has pockets of extreme poverty and pockets of extreme wealth. 14k per-capita is nearly 3 times less than ours...

Yeah Creepy, Some peoples ancestors we Allowed in using "legal" immigration.

When America need workers, they Allowed Black Folk in. And in the `1800's when American need help to build the Cities and Railroads "Westren Expansion", They let in immigrants from Asia in the West, Europeans from the East and Hispanics from the south...

So Creepy, Those folks came "Legally".

Allowed? Try again. The ancestors of most American Blacks were were brought here against their will. However: illegal aliens came here voluntarily. There is a difference.
