Perhaps we should follow suit and place crosses at the Mexican border to commemorate the lives of U.S. citizens murdered by Mexican illegals. Unfortunately, those deaths are simply considered collateral damage.

TIJUANA, Mexico ó Rights activists in the northern Mexican border city of Tijuana have hung 5,100 small white crosses on the fence straddling the U.S. frontier to commemorate migrants who have died trying to cross.

The Mexican government estimates about 350,000 of its citizens migrate to the U.S. annually.

Not a bad idea, it would be more effective than griping all the time on the internet. Of course you'd probably need to hire some Mexicans to do the work...as it looks laborious, probably too much work for Americans. Plus the crosses would probably need to be made in Mexico anyways...

Clearly, the lives of U.S. citizens are insignificant to some. How sad.

Hey YOU proposed the idea, I simply added that ACTION might be better than sitting on the computer.

No, it was a snide remark, and an affront to thousands of victims.

Normal people do not hang their stuff all over a fence built and paid for by their neighbor, but this does not surprise me in the least.

What a great idea. We could get a bunch of Pro-Illegal computer jockeys to put up crosses.It's the least the Pro-Illegals can do, they are already out there under-mining the BP aiding and abetting by setting up food and water stations for the criminal horde.


Wait, that's another great idea. If someone has been caught more than once part of their sentence would be putting up crosses for all the Americans killed by the illegal horde.


BTW it will probably be stamped with made it China but delivered via Mexico.

The fact remains that many more thousands of US citizens have fallen victim to illegals than people killed on 911 or in the war on terror.
That is the point Benicar was making.
Illegals are a victim of their own crimes and decision making. Not unlike a common criminal who is taken advantage of by a tougher common criminal that they associate with.
Oh, he knew exactly what I meant. He didnít want to debate the issue, because that clearly wasnít the agenda.

I am so sick of being bombarded with sob stories involving illegals. As you stated, those who die trying to illegally enter this country, do so because they CHOSE to disregard our laws. That is simply the risk they take. Whose fault is it if I choose to rob a bank, and during the commission of my crime, I am shot in the head by a guard? Should the bank erect a memorial in my honor? Please.

The pro-illegals donít want to discuss the U.S. victims of illegal immigration. If Al Qaeda or the Taliban had entered this country and killed thousands of citizens and raped 1 million women, girls, and boys Ė including infants and toddlers, it would be plastered over every news media in this country, and citizens would DEMAND action. No one would try to justify these heinous acts by comparing them to crimes committed by citizens; and there would be no accusations of racism or xenophobia launched against citizens for expressing disdain.

No, ALL illegals are not murderers and rapists; nor are ALL citizens. However, we expect citizen criminals to be apprehended and punished. Yet, we are expected to ignore this scum simply because they represent the minority of illegals. Give me a break.

Effective how?????? This is the problem with Mexican activists. They'll cry and whine about the people fleeing their country to break the laws of another but they will not actually do anything to improve conditions for them back home.

And where are all the crosses for the over 2000 murdered just this year so far in Juarez? or the 1800 murdered the year before there or the hundreds of murdered and mutiliated women of that town? Why do Mexican activists simply make some symbolic gesture especially when it comes to breaking USA laws but fail to do anything of any importance for their country?

Hispanic culture is a White man's culture despite the laughable denials of the la raza types.
True and the country of Mexico did not exist until the Spaniards came and staked out their claim on that territory.

The Aztecs ruled only over a 35 mile radius near current day Mexico City but Mexico did not exist as any kind of nation until after Cortes.
