You think you have the right to call out anyone for having different opinions than you? How delusional and arrogant.

Hey, apparently you just recently broke in, because everyone knows that the vast majority of illegals in the Us are illegal Mexicans. In fact, over 10% of the population of Mexico is here in the US illegally. So, illegal Mexicans by their sheer numbers and criminal behavior are the illegals that are ruining the US. Other nationalities of illegals are but a small problem compared to the hordes of illegal Mexicans in the US.

Not only is Roguer correct, but many illegal aliens from other countries enter our country illegally via Mexico. Thus, the OP is appropriate. If they entered through Mexico, we should send them back to Mexico. They can find their way home from there.

Authorities say in the last two years they have seen a dramatic rise in the number of Cubans entering the U.S. through the Southwest border, particularly between Laredo and Brownsville, Texas.

In fiscal year 2007, CBP officials said, more than 11,000 Cubans immigrants were cleared into the U.S. through Texas alone, much more than in any other state, including Florida.

LA JOYA, Texas – Local police are accustomed to dealing with illegal border crossings, but they were astounded by the video of 15 Chinese immigrants unfolding themselves from the back of a red Suburban near this small border town.

Two more Chinese immigrants would be picked up nearby later that day and another group of nine was caught near the border about 50 miles away a few days later.

HIDALGO - U.S. Border Patrol agents Sunday detained 18 people from the horn of Africa - an uncommon but not unheard of origin for illegal migrants to the United States, officials said.

The east African immigrants - 13 from Eritrea and five from Ethiopia - were walking along a road in Hidalgo on Sunday when they were spotted, said local Border Patrol spokesman Daniel Doty.

Agents peacefully took the illegal immigrants into custody, Doty said. None of them was carrying drugs or firearms

The thousands who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexican border every day are not just from Mexico and Latin America, but from as far as Eastern Europe, India and China.

The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service announced today that a two-week international antismuggling operation had caught nearly 8,000 would-be immigrants on their way to the United States, from 39 different countries. More than half were stopped at the Mexican border.

Last year, Mexico deported 152,000 people who had entered the country illegally trying to get to the United States. This year, figures are up by 35 percent, Mexican officials say.

Well, deport them all

It is going to be very costly to deport over 20 million people back to their homelands. Undocumented people could be from anywhere in the world (Mexico, Europe, Asia, Middle East, other countries in the Americas, etc). The undocumented population is similar to the total population of Australia (21 million people). It is going to be extremely costly for us to do such thing, and the productivity hours lost (over 20 million laborers) will contribute to the worsening of our economy.

I looking at this issue from an economic point of view

In my opinion, we should find a way to make them pay taxes; an Amnesty is the most logical option (economical and viable). If you have an idea feel free to share it.


Well, deportation is an option.. but as I wrote before... is it $$ viable?

I Have 2 ways we can solve all illegal immigration for little to next to nothing . 1. issue them cards @ the boarder, just like credit cards, only these are for people who hire them have to issue their pay to their card and all appropriate taxes will be removed automatically at that time. Then you gotta put harsh penalties in place for anyone who pays cash trying to get by cheap, but why would the illegals risk arrest and deportation when it would be easy not to. Also got to show your card when applying for any services so your status can be determined. EASY. Or, we could just send 50,000 troops to Mexico and walk in and take over. EASY too!!!

It would be even more costly to grant them amnesty. Not only would 20+ million receive citizenship, but they would then bring millions of their relatives in. We wouldn’t need to spend a penny on deportation, if we would simply enforce ALL of our laws. If they couldn’t work here, and couldn’t receive ANY benefits, they would leave. Also, the 14th Amendment should be rescinded. All of the descendants of African slaves have already been granted citizenship.
