[SIZE=2]

According to the Border Patrol the public is being mislead as to WHO is
coming into the US from Mexico. These two videos are reports by WSBTV
in Atlanta.

Immigration laws and borders exist in just about every country in the world - including Mexico - for very good reason.

We have zero enforcement of immigration law and zero enforcement of the border so that means anyone can come over the border for any reason at all. Many that cross over are working for the drug cartels, many come for the easy life of welfare handouts - to the land of plenty handouts. Some come to work because working here is easy and pays more. Some come for other crimes - auto theft is a big one.

Gotta make sure they profile people from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and parts of Eastern Europe, otherwise the terrorists might slip through the cracks. Problem is that many of the people from these countries don't look Mexican, so I can see cops letting them slip through the cracks as they focus on other groups. Logistically this is a nightmare, that's a hell of a lot of groups to look out for.

No one no matter how they look should be coming over that or any border illegally. Stop them all.

Exactly. It has been reported that many come to mexico, learn the language to pass as mexican because eyes are turned AWAY from them as they cross into the US border illegally.

It's not practical to question or pull everyone over, ask any law enforcement agent. You have to profile, If they profile all those groups, it will take a lot of time.

Do you have peer-reviewed empirical research that you can recommend for us? Every study I've seen confirms the premise that illegal and undocumented immigrants have higher employment and lower crime rates than the "native"-born population, aside from issues directly stemming from unlawful status...but those wouldn't be a strong case against legalization, would they?

No one "looks Mexican," as Mexicans are a multi-racial national group. You could just as easily ask if someone "looks Canadian."
