Chinese illegals paying $20,000 to cross border - KVOA News 4, Tucson, Arizona - (http://www.kvoa.com/global/story.asp?s=10800572 - broken link)

Quote:
Southern Arizona is seeing a surge in illegal border crossers, not from Mexico, but China.

According to Border Patrol, Chinese immigrants are willing to pay smugglers top dollar, tens of thousand of dollars a piece. International smugglers guide them from The Peoples Republic of China to Mexico and into Arizona.

I wonder if there is still people that think that these individuals could just get in the back of the line and paid their fees to immigrate here legally.

I don't know. But I do know there is one person who thinks that if there is not a way for them to come here legally, then they need to stay out. The US is not some sort of flophouse and we are not obligated to accept every unskilled, poorly educated individual who had wants to come here.

I do not think the United States should be put up for sale. Considering what happens in other regions of this planet, the value of a United States citizenship should be a priceless commodity. Alot of educated immigrants comming here do not want to assimilate culturally and I do not believe that is good for this country. I don't care how much money they have. Europe has sold itself to rich arabs and look at the direction their going in. They better be ready to kick their liberal aspirations out the window.
