I believe they use side dikes to chop thru the chain link right now...

I mean a real wall. 4' ditch.......30 yard gap....Concertina wire...another 30 yard gap.......16' chain link fence with razor wire......another 30 yard gap.......then a Cinder block wall 18' high with out posts and check points. Now THAT would be a wall.....

I figured up a rough shot estimate on this a few months back, just in raw materials I believe it would be about 7.5 billion. Plus look at all the jobs it would created. Stimulus, border control, increase safety, less illegals. What a deal!

And your point being?

If we kept out 95% of those illegal alien criminals; which the wall would accomplish (remember the Berlin Wall?)-----------that would be huge.

In all fairness: that 30-40 million number is probably bogus.

7-10 million illegals still here is my best guess. Remember that many Mexican nationals have returned back to Mx due to our bad economy.

Now: if counting Anchor Babies as being here 'illegally' despite them technically being US citizens.......ca. 20 million is indeed plausible.

The problem with the poll is this.....not all illegal aliens are Mexican. There are stories and situations...each with their own merit. The only deal should be that as long as someone is in this position they shouldn't be allowed to work or get welfare services.

Hmm, why do you associate "Illegal Alien" with only Mexicans? Illegal immigrants are coming from many countries, even European countries. So many of the ones who are against illegal immigration only mention Mexicans which leads people to believe that they are racists. Which it sure does seem like they are.

Sure most of the current illegal immigration is from Mexico but I don't see you guys protesting at European embassies saying "Germans go home! British go home! French go home! Etc. Etc.," I don't see the same people who are against illegal immigration complaining about the Canadian border. Thankfully this is just an example of where the minority (racist anti immigration) are being so vocal they are drowning the voices of those that support anti-illegal immigration and those that support open borders out.

If someone is against illegal immigration they should not only be complaining about the Mexican-U.S. border they should also be complaining about the Canadian border. They should be in front of foreign embassies peacfully protesting. I do believe most are worried about whites becoming a minority in the United States. Unfortunately, this will make racists be more vocal as you can see with the kkk and other hate groups growing in numbers.
