Are you sure you are not discussingHaiti here? Mexico is not a poor nation since it has a per capita income of about $14K a year.

How does how things were done in the past justify illegal immigration today? They are coming here for a better life while downgrading ours. Is that ok? I don't think so.

This has nothing to do with being human. "Humans" are still supposed to follow laws because they are in place to protect the majority.

What is pathetic is U.S. citizens advocating for immigration laws breakers especially since they are negatively affecting the citizens of this country.
