We are constantly reminded that we are a nation of immigrants. I think we all get that.
What’s happening now is a different matter. Thousands cross the border every day. The U.S. Border Patrol estimates that two or three illegal aliens make it in for each one detained.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates there were more than 13 million illegal aliens in the U.S. in 2007. Immigration officials believe that number grows by approximately 500,000 per year.
This migration isn’t exactly discouraged by the Mexican government. In January, 2005, the Mexican Foreign Ministry published The Guide for the Mexican Migrant, a 32-page comic book containing a mixture of Boy Scout-like training (what to do when lost) and motherly advice (never swim the Rio Grande alone).
Once here, a ready supply of counterfeit identification allows illegal aliens to work. Forget all that “undocumented workers” stuff. They’ve got documents. It’s just that the documents, like the workers, are illegal.

Don't forget the important parts of those books! Live off of the US taxpayers and send the money back! What a host/parasite combination.

I should at least be able to name one tax payer dependant and keep track of it like a chia pet!

Anybody with a teaspoon full of brains and an ounce of dignity would tuck their tail and run back home. Yet they don't even have enough sense to be embarrassed. Beyond pathetic aren't they?

Yet still capable of churning out children they can't feed. It reminds me of that old I love lucy rerun where they try to stop the pies on the conveyor belt........... but the conveyor (breeders) won't stop.

Hopefully the Republican sentiment that's present there will help fuel some much needed deportation programs.

In my opinion these are important and relavent points in the Original Posters (OP) article. One's ignored by our politicians. It seems if the taxpayers don't do something about illegal aliens nothing will be done and our politicians will legalize them, making the problem worse by 10 fold. Americans have to start yelling at their politicians or learn Spanish to get along in their "New Country", the USA of Mexico.

"Many working here illegally are paid off the books, enabling companies to avoid paying fair wages, unemployment and medical insurance, and retirement. Bear Stearns, a global asset management company, estimated the taxes evaded at $35 billion annually.

Matricular consular cards, handed out freely by Mexican consulates, allow workers to open bank accounts and buy homes. Remittances are easily funneled back home through a clearinghouse set up by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta in amounts approaching $20 billion a year.

The Bank of America even lets Hispanic users in most states send money to Mexico for free"
