Muhnay what did the US say when the East Germans built the Berlin Wall. We said we would never ever do anything like that and "Tear down those walls" Bush has made us the laughing stock of the world and we seem like the biggest hypocrites.

Then how do you propose the flood of illegal aliens (my people...my raza!!) from entering and taking advantage of the many many loopholes in our immigration policies? They live here and they do not pay taxes, they use our infracstructure, they commit crime, they get sick and go to Thomason for free....do I need to go on?

My parents did it right. They came, applied, they waited, they became legalized citizens, they payed taxes, and they sacrificed their lives to provide for me and my brothers.

Meanwhile my lazy a$$ cousins, uncles, and aunts come over and ask for a handout. They hate me but they try to use me. The other day I picked up three "day laborer" mexican workers up at Home Depot. I hired them to do a brick patio for 10 bucks an hour. They were elated to do it. Then they started taking their time and doing a half ass job. But they were happy one of their own was gonna pay them big bucks for that day. After 6 hours and not even half way done they were surprised when I fired them and took them back to Home Depot. I told them they were slacking off and getting the wrong impression that I was gonna pay them for ****ty work. Boy where they surprised and astonished. They cussed me out and called me a traitor and a wanna be white boy.

What they dont understand is that I dont pay for laziness.....especially coming from mexicans!! I worked my butt off to get where I am today. I went to college and got a degree from UTEP.

So how do you propose to handle the flood of illegal aliens?

The Berlin wall was built to keep people IN, not out. Bad analogy.

WOA.. they built a wall.. we're building a fence.

They built a wall to keep people in.

We're building a fence to keep people out.

They did it to oppress a people under fascism.

We're building a fence to insure the freedoms we enjoy.

Right - we are building the fence to keep people IN Mexico - The principle -and it obviously has escaped you -is to prevent people from going where they want.

Muhnay umm Fascism was Italy - Did you mean communism? Hey don't let the facts ever get in your way.

The wall needs to go up.

I'm all for letting the illegals that are here stay here as legal citizens but no more. We need the walls.

The communist East Germans built the wall after WWII to keep there people imprisoned. Reagan uttered the now famous "tear down this wall" speech. I think this needs to be done but if it is not reinforced with the manpower to observe and maintain it building the fence will be a waste of the taxpayer's money.

To keep people from going where they want? You need to read up on the world and how it operates ocean. We don't live in utopia.

Nobody is able to travel freely about this world without proper documentation. Countries have borders, sovereignty, and every right to protect those borders..

Try marching into Mexico sometime and you'll be provided with a useful example of that fact.
