A friend who is a die hard Dem and who also left California told me this last time we talked. He said the problem is not illegal aliens coming across the border it is the asians that over stay their visas and groups like the vietnamese that smuggle in their own.
He also added that the asian gangs are far more brutal than the mexican ones but they tend to butcher each other.

Illegal immigration is a major problem in the US and it needs to be brought under control.

Like I said in a previous post. If we talk about illegals,we talk about all of them. The ones coming across the border, as well as the ones overstaying their visas and the smugglers.

" Asians, not Mexicans, are now highest number of undocumented immigrants. "

They need to be deported immediately, no excuses.

Here is the problem:

Quote:
China is refusing to take back an estimated 39,000 citizens that have been denied immigration to the United States, clogging detention centers on the taxpayer's bill, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Tuesday.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Chertoff said that China last year readmitted 800 Chinese nationals. But that made only a small dent in what he described as a backlog of thousands of Chinese who are being held by the U.S.

Deport illegals, all of them, regardless of ethnicity. I'm for the removal of ILLEGALS. My issue is with the people who want to use "illegal" to mean specifically Mexicans. And this is part of what makes Trump so incendiary. He should of said "I'm against illegals" instead of bringing ethnicity into this.

The only reason that Mexican illegals get more attention is because they are here by far in the largest number illegally. They and other Latinos make up 80% of the illegals here. No matter how many times this is pointed out but also denoted that we want all illegals gone it seems to fall on deaf ears.


It is Mexico and other Latino countries that are "sending" their poor citizens here illegally and many of them are criminals. Trump pointing that out was just a fact.

Mexican illegals get more attention because we have seen the images and it is easy to imagine them walking across the border. It is not so easy to depict or imagine a person who overstays their visa.

Illegal aliens of any nationality is a problem and a burden on society.

Trump is right that we are not getting the best and brightest strolling across our Southern border.

Perhaps we should be looking at that.

I haven't read it all yet, but skimmed it and saw the article doesn't end? They never show the countries rank. Odd.

People who don't respect our immigration laws need to get out. I don't care who they are or where they come from.
