May is closely approaching, Maybe the US can Tell Mexico to through the biggest Cinco de Mayo (5th of May) celebration with free tamales and Cervesa...I bet lots will go to that. We have to think out side the box...

Hey folks, In a nutshell, The people in the U.S. are finding; jobs that used to pay $70,000 are now paying $50,000, Most of us will be forced to take lower paying jobs, whatever they are. The rich are getting richer, the middle class is shrinking, and the poor will become more poorer.

Cinco De Mayo is pretty much an American thing. It is not celebrated much in Mexico.

It is somewhat amusing how many Americans think it is Mexico's Independence day.

By the way, your post was a stereotype.

You took the bait.

Threads like these really aren't helping the side opposed to illegal immigration (which I am). Just over half of the illegals in this country are from Mexico - the others are from everywhere else. The scenario described would not only be effective on illegals who are from Mexico, but would have a similar impact on other nationals as well. Is it any wonder that pro-illegals accuse us of having ulterior motives when discussing illegal immigration?

total fail!

i thought this whole argument was about illegals? apparently its only abou the MX ones. so you want the mexican ones gone, but you are ok with the central american ones? the filipino ones? the haitian ones?

you completely fail here.

especially with the whole "gov't should do this..." i think we have agreed on the fact that its the employers who share a bit of the blame for the situation we are in. you forgot that part...

For example, if you go outside and put bird seeds on your grass, some birds will show up. If you keep putting seeds out, eventually a whole bunch of birds will be on the grass everywhere. If you stop giving them seeds, they fly away.

It's the same with Mexicans.

The title of this thread is: "I know how to make illegal Mexicans go back to Mexico"

so you are basically sticking a finger in one whole at the bottom of the boat while ignoring the others?
coordinated efforts work better. this is nothing of that. what services that illegals get are you going to cut anyways?

there is no substance to it. its a joke. not thought out. more emotional reactionism.

My answer was to your claim that the OP segregated her view and she was "caught". Her thread was specific, she was not "caught" at anything. I hadn't commented on the thread so your assumption is unfounded.
