I think there is a crisis at the border. The problem is there is no one generally accepted idea for fixing it. Far right Republicans want the wall while Democrats want more judges to run nearly immediate asylum cases and then instantly kick them out if they don't have a legitimate claim. Sadly the right has gone too far right for its own good since 2008.

If you want a up to date idea what is going on Mexico's southern border watch this video. Sounds like Trump has got Mexico's attention. Be patient with the video as he had technical difficulties in a small segment of the show.

I made it 1/2 way through. Basically Trump has scared Mexico. They are shutting down travel and work visa stations, rounding people up and their version of ICE is deporting them.

Last month a huge number crossed the border. Whatever it says they are doing, itís not doing much.

And if a country has a problem with domestic abuse, I certainly don't want to let in any menfolk from that country. Why would we want to infect our culture with their misogynistic machismo culture?
That's just racist to Mexicans.

okay...

China is the largest exporter of opium to the world.
Also China's drug problem is worse than the U.S. border's.

There's much more in Mexico than drugs. You should make a thread about the good things about Mexico instead of fake Breitbart-Fox News junk.

This forum is about illegal immigration into our country not about Mexicans in Mexico. If there is a lot of good in Mexico then why do millions of their citizens flee to our country?

Maybe because of crime, jobs, etc. I get what you're saying, drug exporters from Mexico should be arrested/deported immediately, but a wall is not going to stop immigrants from going to our country. I'm sorry for my views, but I am a liberal and do not support Trump or the wall. In Mexico there are much more drugs than there are being exported from the border.

Also I think it is offensive to degrade immigrants so they are aliens. They are people guys!
