The Mexican government could provide them aid and then send them home to Mexico. Why the hell should American taxpayers have to pay for those here illegally again and again?


How many American consulates are in Mexico-does anyone know?
Its disturbing that it bothers you so much that Mexico has consulates here.

Like you, I feel sympathy for these folks. Unlike you, though, I DO care if they're legal or not. The sympathy I feel does not negate the fact that these folks are not supposed to be here.

Don't try to be cute and say things I never said. Where did I say that? I never said I am bothered that Mexico has consulates here and you know that. I said that I felt there are too many here and I have serious reservations as to why so many are needed. There is a big difference as to what I said and what you try to say I did. Stop trying to cause trouble and don't post false information about me.

Its not just you, many of you appear to be very alarmed at the presence of Mexican consulates.

I care because I see it as yet another attempt to meddle and snoop in US affairs. I also think the main purpose of having 47 consulates here is to keep as many illegal alien Mexicans in the US as possible.

God only know what they are doing. Most likely plotting ways to bring more of their impoverished, poorly educated people here so they don't have to take care of them.

Can you name another country that interferes with our immigration policies? Is another country publishing pamphlets to assist illegal entry into this country? Has another leader stated "where there is a ________ there is _______?"
