the birthrate in mexico is low. lower than mexicans in the US.

look up the facts before you regurtitate false information (or present a weak attempt to theorize about what you obvioulsy know nothing about).

there is a difference between immigrants(illegal and other) and those that stay in the home country.

Fair post.
It must be stated that its ok to be anti-illegal and the arguments can be made without altering facts, or exaggerating facts.

Note that not all of Latin America is just Mexico. Guatemala has a higher birthrate (3.5 kids per woman) and word has it that most Guats trying to sneak into the USA via Mexico try to pass themselves off as 'Mexican'.

Very good point Arizonabear, as well it could be added that the overpopulation referred to would be due to a birthrate reflecting a birthrate relative to the general populations age. Logically. Therefore a contemporary statistic on birthrate in above discourse is illogical and an aggressive attempt to appear smartsy.
What he could have said is that latin ammerica appear to have more mouths to feed than they can handle but that again is relative. So, why did I suggest ?
Because , ultimately I agree with the momentum of the statement and if a People
create a world of havic in overextending the population over a " fair period of time
and locations" it is then very true and scencible to be somewhat worried and very concerned when the same People start to illegally , unlawfully enter your country
in pursuit of taking and consumming your ancestors reserves.
Shame on those who try to "trip up and embarass" the hard working people who want to join in the war against an out of control , way past the breaking point
potential Continent Destroying Seed of disorder. Much shame indeed !

North Carolina's boom attracted a whole mess of illegals to construction jobs along with driver's licenses. My father just moved to the Charlotte area (grew up outside Wilmington) and I bet it's kind of shocking after being in Hampton Roads (one of the few places, shockingly, that hasn't seen a massive boom in illegals) for 5 years prior.

North Carolina is a great place but the illegal immigrant factor is a big one in deciding on whether there, Louisville, KY (short-term plan), or Hampton Roads, VA will be my permanent home.

I don't know much about this (I don't like asking mexicans about that stuff)
but from what I know =
good paying jobs, less immigration enforcement officers, cheaper cost of living.

E-Verify would take care of a lot of that criminal activity.

Perhaps this is true, because in Mexico they would have to actually support their children; whereas here, they can rely on their children to receive welfare, subsidized housing, and other benefits. Here, the more children they have, the more money they receive from the government. Also, their US-born children lessen their chances for deportation. After all, we certainly donít want to separate families.

Mexico is 103, the us is 153. Now if we look at the rate of young woman coming here illegally from Mexico and giving birth (though the loophole makes them American) the numbers would be EXTREMELY futher apart. Another 40% as those numbers should actually be Mexican. (whatever the % is of Illegals that give birth here).

I'll wager Mexico would be possibly in the top 50 while the US would fall deep.
