Problem solved!

McCain-Kennedy Immigration Reform Bill vs. Mexico's Immigration Law - HUMAN EVENTS

It’s noteworthy that nobody has argued that the U.S. look at how Mexico deals with immigration and what it might teach us about how best to solve

our illegal immigration problem. Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:
• in the country legally;
• have the means to sustain themselves economically;
• not destined to be burdens on society;
• of economic and social benefit to society;
• of good character and have no criminal records; and
• contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

The law also ensures that:
• immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
• foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
• foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
• foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
• foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
• those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

Who could disagree with such a law? It makes perfect sense. The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens -- and the denial of many fundamental rights to non-citizens, illegal and illegal. Under the constitution, the Ley General de Población, or General Law on Population, spells out specifically the country's immigration policy.

I went to London, England in 1987 around Thanksgiving and on my Passport it said I could not work for 6 months. With that said I did it legally, how is it we are to know who climbs the walls or comes in a U-Haul truck??? I have no problem with people coming here legally.

Most Americans don't. We are a nation of immigrants after all. But we are made up of immigrants who came here legally and wanted to be American, wanted to assimilate into the US culture. The illegal aliens don't want to be American or assimilate, they just want a free lunch, free medical care, free education, and to send all their US tax-free money back "home to Mexico", all at the expense of American taxpayers.

How anybody can defend illegals is a mystery, but I think liberalism is a proven mental illness.

I don't remember saying I am for illegal immmigrants...HECK NO If I insinuated that I am sorry.....I believe that if they want to come here they should do it legally. Otherwise face the consequences of thier personal decision.

Most of us applaud legal immigration. When we had our mass european entrants to the US they did not immediately go to the social security office, get food stamps or apply for free medical etc. There was no welfare. Those immigrants are the backbone of this country. Why we insist on importing impoverished, uneducated sickly people is beyond me.

Write a love letter to your local congressman about it, tell me how it works out!

You silly goose, during the ERA of Ellis Island was long before we had the Great Depression and the signing of Franklin Delano Roosevelt 'NEW DEAL' which began an era of Socialism in America.

Had their been a social security office, food stamps or free medical services during the ERA of Ellis Island, you can bet your lucky stars that those European immigrants would have lined up in droves for those services.

So you don't believe me?

Then why in raw numbers not per capita are their more European decent Americans on welfare than any other group of Americans?
