They've figured out that once they birth an anchor baby, said baby is eligible for all sorts of welfare programs, which benefit the entire family, such as Section 8 housing. To add insult to injury, they send their kids to school not knowing a word of English plus the Spanish they do know is atrocious. For example, they don't know colors and can't tell red from blue. Teachers will tell you that these kids never fully catch up.

Yet, you seem to have no problem with all of the above^^^^. Why is that?

To sum up, I don't care where in the world an illegal alien is from. Nor do I care if they got here by sneaking across a border or overstaying a visa. They all have one thing in common, and that is this --- they have no business being here and need to leave.

So, please, don't pull the race card. It doesn't work anymore.
Well you are pushing toward racist in the above. For instance less than 13% might be functionally illiterate. And half are a high school graduate or better. And the waiting line for Section 8 housing is well past 19 years in most places of interest. And half speak English well or better.

And the practical problem continues regardless of the desirability of the illegals. There simply is no way to deport 11 million people.

The 11 million will self deport if we criminally prosecute anyone who hires them, suburban housewives included. Cut off access to our schools and hospitals and any entitlement they're tapping into and they'll self deport rather quickly as well.

You are out of line with your accusation, but then, I am not surprised. My husband is legally from Mexico and got a laugh out of the comment. He doesn't like illegals, either, because they are breaking the law. Using this accusation is insulting and typical when one has nothing of substance to add to the conversation.

How would a border wall help? These people aren't trying to sneak in, they are walking right up to the border crossing and asking to be apprehended so they can apply for asylum. A border wall would do nothing (in fact the Tijuana crossing area already has a wall). What we need is to change the laws governing how people can apply for asylum.

Absolutely. I would prefer to use the Wall money for Surveillance and more Border Patrol agents.

Default BREAKING: Over 500 ‘Migrant Caravaners’ Arrested With Suicide Vests

According to Eduardo El Guapo Cardinal, his troops went tent by tent, waking the occupant when something fishy was found:

“What we found were more than 500 ISIS soldiers posing as ‘immigrants’ fast asleep with their suicide belts right next to them. We’re lucky nobody was blown up in the raid.”


BREAKING: Over 500

You might have point there. I am not sure I would stop the Swedish Bikini team types from illegally crossing the border.

What change do you have in mind? Anyone can apply. Problem is what happens AFTER they apply. Looks like they get to stay. In fact, during the Obama years, they were given bus tickets and spending money to go where they please.

Sure there is. Money solves all problems. The "not enough money" excuse has been used for decades, and in each case the cost, at that time, was a paltry amount compared to the long term costs were of letting them stay. In addition, inflation has always worked to reduce the cost in the historical long view. In other words, we could well justify spending the money and they would be successfully deported.

True.
