why don't we just open up the border and say "come on in and screw up our country like you did with yours"?

Funny thing when coming back from Calif to AZ along the border. We were stopped by BP and he checked all of us pretty well and asked if we were US citizens. We were not insulted nor were we angry that he stopped a car full of people the color of pasta. We were grateful that they were doing their job.

For some reason Illegals think there is some unwritten law that says if they make it across the border they are home free and able to use social services at will and drive without a license/registration or insurance.

It's an "Obama Nation" and will only get worse unless something changes.

Sad but true. Since enforcing our laws may offend some of the Hispanic voting block in the US, our two main pollitical parties have no desire to do so. Our border patrol agents are poorly equiped and hardly given the needed support by the federal government to do their job. This isn't an accident.

Frankly (with all due respect to those Latinos who are true Americans); I could not care less what the 'La Raza' crowd thinks----------they are a small minority (14%) of the US population.

Obviously you don't care about these nutwings, but the problem is that lobbiests in Washington DC do, and want your leaders to care too! Ignoring the opposition is no longer a viable option. We, the citizens need to find a way to put our government on notice!
