Yes, because these countries don't have the same healthcare as the United States... why do you think they want to live here?? Maybe this is a good argument for providing them with care, once they arrive - dont'cha think?? Obviously we can't check them at the border when they sneak across, but most will eventually end up at a clinic or doctor. This is actually why we have "mobile health units" (free or low-cost), like one that visits my community... some might not agree with that on principle, but it's better than the alternative! I'd rather not be exposed to disease, and this is one logical solution for now.

How about keep them from coming in!!! The Irish yes they did have it easier, but they were checked!!!! Why should I have to pay for people that are commiting a crime coming here and do not belong here, and have to pay for my own families healthcare?!!! I am so tried of the excuses, they should be sent back over the border along with those that help them. (SO I guess that would be most of the government as well!)

I really don't care if they are legal or not. A trooper was killed and to use rdbeard5 phrase they should be "drawn and quartered"! Period.

Are you suggesting that legal citizens don't participate in drug rings?

There's a little more behind the scenes here than what's been reported in the news. No I'm not suggesting that we don't have a problem with legal citizens and drugs at all, but where do these drugs come from? The answer is they are imported. The drug cartels have found an easy access for drug smuggling since it's so easy to enter this country thru Mexico.


We have a very large number of U.S. citizens involved in drug rings, mainly because they are worthless and useless as human beings and will not work an honest job for a living. We certainly don't need the illegals here adding to the problem and increasing crime. We have far too many police officers killed already, it's really sad and total disgusting to say the least that our sorry government allows scum from other countries to come here and commit crimes such as this. The bottom line is, if they weren't here they couldn't commit the crime.

Maybe I read your post wrong...I don't know. I thought you may be giving these two murders the benefit of the doubt.

Also in Nashville a young pregnant woman was shot five times by illegals who thought they had hit her in a traffic accident.
Two words: lethal injection!

And; ironically enough, 'racism' works in the favor of most illegal Irish here today------as one lady stated, I am a blonde haired and blue eyed English speaker------ICE does not even give me a second glance.

Besides: Ireland today so bloody wealthy ($43K per capita); why even bother living in the USA except for maybe the weather in our Sunbelt?

The Emerald Isle is gorgeous from what I have heard
