I don't have a problem with people wanting to immigrate here. As was said previously, there have been many who have done the same in the past. The difference with immigrants of the past and these particular immigrants is that they want to maintain their culture, their language, and their life-style which is unfortunately not good for us at all. These immigrants are hard workers, but they work for next to nothing and do not have the will power to pursue anything more. They are content to work in low paying positions, live in squatter, and collect government money. This tradition is unfortunately one that is passed on to their children. This is not like immigrants before. True, most started poor, but then the pushed forward and became contributing , English speaking members of our society.

Legal immigrants or illegal alien losers who are failures back in Mexico, etc.?

The former are welcome here whereas the latter are criminals and need to be dealt with accordingly.

In a country where 98% of the wealth is controlled buy only 1% of the population like mexico there is little the vast majority can do to create more jobs and the job market drys up. I understand the crisis faced by the mexicans and others who have to pick between coming here illegal and staying there while their families starve. As this country becomes one where 1 or 2% control 98% of the wealth we are now seeing the same thing here.What is the solution? The only one is to change our system. Call it socialism if you want to but the needs of 98% must out weigh those of the VERY VERY RICH, 2%, We are facing FUEDALISM if something isnt done both here and in Mexico. I blame our government for the problem more than the poor mexicans. And I also blame the Mexican government which is also controlled buy the upper 1%. Fuedalism is 100 times worse than socialism .
