Okay, then what if the burgalr is actually a parent who is trying to get enough money to support his/her family? Watch Fun With Dick and Jane, or the sand guy from Spiderman 3. Same goes for the immigration. Why not let in immigrants to come here for refuge from their country? YOu have Afgahnistans, Muslims and all sorts form the Middle East. But all they want to do is live in peace. There are many countries that are under plenty of bad stuff like war and poverty, and where do they have to go? Canada and USA are good countries to escape the terror. But NOOOOO. All we do is kick them out and tell them to go back over a few legal issues.

Try again.

Mexico is not a poor nation---------let the peons fight for their rights there.

As for the rest of the world; we cannot take in all of it----------unless the rest of the world is willing to submit to US control.

If you do not want the rest of the world to be controlled by us Americans; I suggest that the rest of the world keep its 'undesirable' people instead of foisting them off on us. We have enough homegrown riffraff without importing more.

Mexico: hint, hint, hint.

Ah, you got me there. But let's not forget, there's touble practically everywhere, so there's no escaping it. Unless you went to the Himalayas with the bald people wearing orange robes. Or in the canadian tundra.

What do you think about 500 million poor Africans and Asians setting up shop in your home town? We let millions of poor Mexicans and S Americans walk across. Where is the compassion for poor Africans and Asians? Surely you can afford 20 or 30 yourself?

You have to say no at some level Who is going to pay for their well being after they are here?

It's countries like America who made the illegal immigrants' countries like that. Think about it. Where do you think all the wealth is? While all the money is over there, there's barely anything to keep countries like Mexico alive. You may think that it's all hotels and swimming pools, but the communities are devastating. I don't think you should call them scum if they're just trying to find a decent meal to eat.

Hah illegal crossing down. I def needed a laugh. What they mean is "number of illegals CAUGHT at the border is down" definition- illegals know where not to go now and found other parts of the border to get accrossed.

Kind of hard to have compassion for someone that steals from you. There are millions of unemployed American citizens because they cant find jobs. Why cant they find jobs? Scum bag business men that love cheap labor. There are millions that are homeless, THEY are in desperate need of a meal of any kind and millions of children that are homeless too. Why are they homeless? Cant find jobs the illegals and temp visas that work for cheap have the jobs and therefor they have the houses. Not to mention its hard for us to get welfare and assistance for our own citizens because the government is too busy making sure the illegals are taken care of first!!!

I can too call them scum because they stole their way into our country, stole our jobs, our homes and had millions of Americans thrown out in the street in goal of taking care of themselves, their family back home in another country. Compassion?!?! Why the he** should we have compassion for someone who doesnt have it for us?

You want a better life for yourself and family? Fine apply for a LEGAL status here in the US and go about it that way but do not steal into this country, steal our jobs and our homes, have millions of Americans thrown out of their homes to make room for you. Do not demand we cater to your needs, insult us by waving your flag in OUR country. Do not rape our citizens, molest our children, steal from our homes or our cars, murder our neighbors and families. What people dont seem to grasp, is that America is all about compassion, helping those in need. What the American citizens are about, is helping those that ARE realy in need that wont lie cheat and steal to get it. We open our arms to anyone who needs it. Right now Haiti needs it more than any of the illegals already here and we cant help them because all the illegals that stole into this country sucked up eveerything we had "just so they can feed themselves".

You want to know why we the American citizens are pi**ed off at the illegals AND our government? Because the illegals see the power they possess with our government and how they find favor in their eyes before the American citizens that are rightfully in this country does. They work together screw everyone else.

Try again.

Hint: it is not the USA holding a gun to the men in Third World countries forcing them to have more children than they can feed/raise.

As for Mexico proper: its per capita income is above $14K a year-----------some towns right here in the USA are half that. What Mexico needs is a 'Martin Luther King' to lead its dark skinned citizens in them demanding their rights from the (mostly) White elite.
