Exactly!
That is money Our country could use within its borders.. When a country puts out brochures on how to sneak into a country and what to do when you get there alone speaks volumes!

He needs to concern himself with the reasons why his citizens are fleeing his own country before criticizing ours.

It appears much of the drugs in Mexico are being used by Felipe because his brain would have to be fried to make such a moronic statement with a straight face!
no kidding. Ask this guy what Mexican police can do if they see a person that they think is not a Mexican citizen.

Just 0.5 percent
The foreign-born make up just 0.5 percent of Mexico’s 105 million people, compared with about 13 percent in the United States, which has a total population of 299 million. Mexico grants citizenship to about 3,000 people a year, compared to the U.S. average of almost a half million.

“There is a need for a little more openness, both at the policy level and in business affairs,” said David Kim, president of the Mexico-Korea Association, which represents the estimated 20,000 South Koreans in Mexico, many of them naturalized citizens.
“The immigration laws are very difficult ... and they put obstacles in the way that make it more difficult to compete,” Kim said, although most foreigners don’t come to Mexico seeking government posts.
J. Michael Waller, of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, was more blunt. “If American policy-makers are looking for legalmodels on which to base new laws restricting immigration and expelling foreign lawbreakers, they have a handy guide: the Mexican constitution,” he said in a recent article on immigration

Uh huh, well, 50% or better of our economy does not depend on people jumping the fence or swimming the river from here to Mexico, milking the Mexican system and wiring the dough back here. Mexico is not giving US citizens, in Mexico illegally, free medical care, welfare benefits,and allowing them to vote in the Mexican political system and sway thing to benefit the US. US citizens, in Mexico illegally, are not forming violent street gangs, and killing Mexican citizens for kicks and giggles, and flooding Mexican communities with drugs. US citizens are not flooding into Mexico by the thousands daily, demanding that Mexican citizens and businesses speak English, and conform to accommodate an English speaking culture. (Tourism does NOT count ) I have plenty more examples like this, but I think I made my point.

Swastikas and jack boots aye? Is it OK for left wingers to use this comparison when they find something distasteful? It's only when conservatives get bent about our right to bear arms being taken that this anology becomes moronic then? Catch a clue man. It seems that the posts on here that are bashing this new law in AZ the most , are people who do not live in areas that illegals are a problem, or, support harboring illegals for whatever reason. "Sanctuary city types,who have never been out to actually see the damage illegals do, let alone lived with it. It is absolulely pathetic to read some of these posts. Wa wa wahhhhhh, the poor illegals. Coming from someone who does not even come close to understanding how bad these 'people' hurt us, it is absolutely infuriating!!!

It's very true. On any given weekend you see them lined up at the customer service desk in the supermarkets wiring money somewhere..I can only assume here that it is Mexico. The Western Union line is easily 10 deep and they pay with cash.
