Kele - as usual, you have jumped right to the correct point.

Thinking back on it: I had a classmate back east in the early 1970's with the surname Hernandez-----------despite his light olive skin tone he claimed German heritage, not Hispanic. Which was quite possible...........quite a few 'full blood' ethnic German people can pass for light Mestizo.

U know it seems funny that people are mad at immigrants esp when then country was founded by immigrants which is the typical double standardness of this country. Oh and by the way if u are going to close the borders, then make sure u close the northern one too as no one ever says anything about canada even though it was proven that only 23 miles of that border was patrolled unlike the southern one which received way more attention

First off why are you bringing back a topic that is 3 years old? Second, who is mad at "immigrants"? In case you didn't know it this is the illegal immigration forum, not the "immigrant" forum. Are you claiming that we have no right to immigration laws and quotas today? Is that just for this country or is only ok for other countries to have them?

No one is suggesting we close the borders just that foreigners come here through the legal ports of entry.

If your engine is the problem do you also replace the transmission just to do both?
Our Northern Border is not the source of the massive wave of illegals crossing into our country. Yes if it becomes a problem we should grant it equal attention. But to do so now would be a gross waste of resourses and man power. It has nothing to do with race or ethnic background and everything to do with reality.
The fact is the southern border is the problem.

Of course, building a wall on the southern border would ALSO be a huge waste of resources.

If actually were a wise use of resources, private individuals and companies would already be spending their own money to build it. But they're not.

I have seen where Arizona is looking for private investors to take that on as we speak. I guess we'll see.
