Factor in the population growth in all races in the Southwestern states.. If we don't establish a better immigration system, we're going down the drain. Mexicans will continue to kill our quality of life. Why? Because their growth is too fast to mandate their assimilation.

We're stopping Asian and Indians with high skills from becoming doctors, lawyers, and computer geniuses... And we're letting Mexicans run in for free. As racist as it sounds, ..Put a limit on Mexicans. Whuduya think?!

I dont know. I think the US needs to chill on immigration altogether. Prices are sky rocketing out of control in larger cities. Even in smaller cities low income people and middle class are being priced out of affordable housing. Healthcare is poor overall for the type of country this is. There are a ton of illegals who dont want to assimilate and would rather start their own fractured countries within ours. Adding more boundaries and barriers much like special interests groups. There are to many polarizing issues on both the liberal and republican side. Theres to much unnatural growth and agendas going around. Everyones selling something. Preaching acceptance and tolerance, while trampling other peoples views. Pushing some special interest. Just to many issues that shouldnt be issues. They need to be adressed and squashed.

Illegal immigration? Let the country decide. Make a think tank. Put it to a televised debate until a resolution people feel satisfied with voting in is on the table. Make it straight forward and to the point. Its obvious this administration might be to busy to come up with a good idea of their own. The are other people that have needs and other issues. Theres just to many issues in this country and its polarizing the nation. That can lead to bad descision making.

I think you need to take a trip to Monterey Park. Just travel across the San Gabriel Valley to the 605 freeway via Valley Blvd. and try to spot the Ameriican businesses like Ralph's and Vons. Get out and try to ask some of the people questions. Go into some of the grocery stores and try to find the Campbell's soups and the Hershey's chocolate.

You can get back to me later and tell me how many people were able to understand your questions or anything else you had to say for that matter.

Then you can tell me again: We need HOW MANY Asians?

They also stopped a truck about a 100 miles north of the border near Falfurrias,TX with 40 illegals from Brazil. We need B52's back in the air and stop the invasion...lol..

Asians come by boat and plane too.

Here's Wikipedia's list of where illegal immigrants come from as of January 2006:

Mexico 6,840,000 57%
Latin & Central Amer. 3,000,000 25%
Asia 1,080,000 9%
Europe + Canada 720,000 6%
Rest of World 480,000 4%

So, out of every 100 illegals that you meet, 57 will be from Mexico, 25 will be from Central or Latin America, 9 will be from Asia, 6 will be from Europe or Canada and 4 will be from some other place. (This adds up to 101 but it's Wiki math!)

More information from Wikipedia:

Stricter enforcement of the border has failed to significantly curb illegal immigration, instead pushing the flow into more remote regions, slightly reducing the rate of apprehensions and increasing the cost to taxpayers of each arrest from $300 in 1992 to $1700 in 2002.

The tightening of border enforcement has disrupted the "traditional" circular movement of migrant workers from Mexico by increasing the costs and risks of crossing the border, thereby reducing their rate of return migration to Mexico. The difficulty of the journey has prompted many migrant workers to stay in the United States longer or indefinitely.

Half of Vietnam is already here, little Siagons are all over.

I just looked at another study that basically said: For every 4 illegal Mexicans in this country, there is one illegal Asian. Aside from the West Coast and New York, most of the country hasn't seen many Asians.

If they dislike Spanish, just wait until they get to deal with languages that don't even have letters like our languages! At least with Spanish, you can learn that Mercado is store. Try doing that with Chinese!!
