It would be great to close our borders to those who may want to blow up our buildings -- but to do that, the mexican border would have to be sealed and the mexican government itself doesn't want that.
As far as jobs being taken? Do a little research of the effect 'scabs labor' has on unions, and non union jobs. That is the problem with illegal immigration. And illegal immigration is not confined to mexicans alone, although due to proximity and their own governments encouragement, they are the majority.

There would be a benefit to them entering legally. No?

Why don't they enter legally? No papers? No identity? No health check?

They pay 2,000 dollars to a coyote to smuggle them into the USA when they could use that money to get proper documentation to enter the USA. They're not very bright.

I'm so glad you support the elimination of workers rights and desire for the U.S. to go back to allowing 16 hour work weeks with no overtime. Can I get you to sign a petition to allow child labor in sweat shops?

I am not playing your game: close/lock at least our southern border and start mass deportations............we are a sovereign nation and have the right and duty secure it.

Can't argue with your point. I can see NO reason we shouldn't do what you say, except that it wouldn't be 'compassionate' to do so...however, we have (conservatively) 20 million illegals in this country. It may be 'compassonate' if we had 4 million, or 5 million....having 20 million, though, isn't 'compassionate',...... it's INSANE...

200-300K illegals may qualify as compassionate.............

What about the illegal immigrants who use our hospitals, leave and never pay the bills causing bankruptcies as a result?

What about those illegal and pregnant female Mexican migrants who cross the border only to deliver their children here in the US so that they can receive free government benefits, use their children as an means of gaining citizenship or as political weapons should they face deportation?

What about those illegal immigrants who murder about 4,000+ Americans annually or those who commit identity fraud, rapes, assaults or other crimes? What about those illegal immigrants who are forming criminal gangs that are sprouting all over the US and now into Canada?

Did you ever care to think about the effects that those illegal immigrants have on our society? I didn't think so.

FYI:

One of the ironies is that people who do live longer are much more likely to die of Alzheimer's, etc.

The stark reality is that obese/smoking people tend to die quickly and younger whereas a dementia sufferer can linger for many years costing more $$$ in the long run

For the record: I do not smoke and am working on my weight.
