Its very complicated and has to do with culture and land,etc . Its different here and different rules.

Don't be embarrassed. It took me a while to 'get it', too. Now that you and I are beginning to 'see the light', though, this could change EVERYTHING !!

Maybe George Bush isn't so dumb after all..HE 'got it' years ago....we just didn't believe him.

One thing that caused Mexico to lose what is now our Southwest was their inability to subdue Kele's ancestors-----------the Apache.

BTW: Apache were indigenous to New Mexico-----------not Aztecs, etc. till the Hispanics AKA Spaniards came along.

Your arguments are no more than a punching bag, very little substance.

It IS?....hmmmm...that confuses me. So you're saying it's alright to violate American law, show massive disrespect for America, and feel Americans have no right to object....but we can't treat Mexico that way, because the Mexicans might not "like" it? That's an interesting way of looking at things.

How much do you know about the US? Are you sure that "we" like being treated that way, anymore than Mexico does? Or do you just assume that?

You're right...it IS very complicated.

I'm afraid that the deliciousness of your irony is lost on this one Mac.

That wooshing sound you hear is that of your post whizzing completely over his head.....

Maybe so....but take heart. It's a virtual certainty that we'll get SOME feedback. It may not be relevant, or even on the same subject.....but we'll get SOMETHING.....

I would love for you to provide a quote of me advocating for open borders!

I know you and other posters will ignore my challenge because you won't be able to find one.
