Go after the businesses. Start fining them. Start throwing some CEOs in jail.

Do that, and the "flood" of illegal aliens will slow to a trickle, because businesses will stop hiring them. A trickle we can control. A flood? Well, you might as well try to stop the tide from coming in.
Less than 1% come to commit crime? Wrong. The majority of drugs smugglers are Mexicans. Check the stats for incarcerated Mexican foreign nationals in the U.S. Outrageous.

Coming to find work? Wrong. Check the stats of the recipients for welfare and TANF. Dude, it's people like you who propogate the myth of the hard-working Mexican just-coming-to-work-what's-so-wrong-with-that attitude that turns the public sentiment against mass deportations. They're not hard-working, they're criminals.

Stop blaming Americans for the criminal acts of Mexicans. ICE can only fine so many businesses--they only have roughly 1200 Special Agents for the entire friggin' country! When the public stops aiding and abetting the presence of illegals, change will happen. When Americans get sick and tired of being called racists because they don't want to speak Spanish, change will happen.

You won't find his name linked to any company that you can look up on your computer, the link above may explain why. It's long but a good read.

I have it on good authority that he owns (1) Real Estate Company (2) Construction Company (3) Yacht Sales Company.

Who is pushing this on us and how do we benefit?

i have no problem with hispanics, but it is the ones who are poor and uneducated AND are willing to commit a crime. YES a crime, coming here illegally. I have immigrants in my family but legal ones. and they assimilated by learning english asap and opening themselves up to american culture while still respecting their own.

I think it is economic threat and fear of change. The U.S. is an empire that is now under attack and in decline. Historically, empires have a 100% failure rate.

I do not think the U.S. will be an exception.

If we keep taking in millions from 3rd world nations, soon we'll be a 3rd world nation ourself.

The flood must be stopped.

The majority of the illegals seem to think that they can do whatever they want, wave the flags of foreign countries as a protest, they can boo US teams when Mexico comes to play, boo Miss USA, never have to get driver's licenses or insurance or buy fraudulent documents and/or steal IDs and SS#s, operate in a cash economy and break IRS laws, speak Spanish so you don't know what they are saying (even when they know some English), they don't have to get vaccinations, they have too many kids when they are already burdening the systems, throw trash out car windows, walk down the middle of the street, block people's driveways, party in the street, play loud music, don't wave but stare at you, refuse to stand or recite the pledge of allegiance etc. I could go on and on.

They just don't appear to be at all grateful or even scared of breaking the law.

If there were a few thousand I think we would be irritated but not really care that much. But there are millions and millions doing this.
