That is not funny-------and, I agree with your analogy as well.

Actually it is kinda funny, if it wasn't us living it, but we are, so is really tragic, especially down the road a few years. Those with any vision or foresight will be looking for a place to bunker down. I am thinking of relocating back to Wyoming within the next few years. And just wondering how long it will take for the invasion to hit the outback there....

IMHO - concern over a disfunctional immigration system is not rhetoric any more than concern by citizens over violence and crime. your post characterizes americans as nothing more than a bunch of cranks. respect is the issue isn't it? (asi es la cuestion, falta de respecto no?)

(es la verdad) That is the truth, and it goes both ways.

Whose rhetoric will the next president tone down? Certainly not mine. Does anyone here feel that the next commander in chief will tone down his or her rhetoric for them? Are we talking about limiting free speech? Will the next president kidnap Lou Dobbs?

What a biased, code-word laced, poor excuse for journalism article that was. Thanks blacknight, but we already know how dishonest the pro-illegal argument can be.

Why, so that it can be "redistributed" among Mexico's elite as is the rest of the financial aid they receive from the U.S.? I don't think so.

Mexico is a country rich in natural resources. The Japanese have remarked that if they owned the land in Mexico, they would be the richest nation on earth. Why is that? Because the government in Japan is not one based in greed and corruption as is Mexico's. Mexico's government is its people's own worst enemy and until they grow some bullocks and begin to hold their government accountable for its actions, nothing will ever change, no matter how many American tax dollars are pumped into its economy.

Mexico's Government is guilty of Economic Apartheid. Time to dismantle it.

That is one of the sole reasons why I've been visiting the same place in Mexico for 17 years and little to nothing has changed.
