At the end of the day, the blame for this disaster lies squarely on the shoulders of the illegals who sneak into the US knowing they are in violation of US immigration law and not caring.
Kudos to you for doing the right, patriotic thing... too bad your efforts don´t seem to do any difference. Back to who is to blame, I think is childish to blame the illegals themselves. If no one gaves them a job, housing, healthcare etc. you can be sure no illegal be there today.

I sincerely hope your country do the right thing regarding illegal immigration, but again... stop using derogative remarks against Mexico and its people... stop acting like all Mexico is Tijuana or Cd. Juarez.

Not all Mexicans are illegals, not all illegals are Mexicans.

Certainly not....and I might add:

"Not all racists are anti-illegal.....and not all anti-illegals are racist"...

We could do more of these, if you have time...
