A child being born to two illegal parents should not be a US citizen. It is high time we changed that law. It was originally meant to protect freed slaves, not illegal Mexicans.

Line, what line? Why are you deflecting. Our social service network was created for American Citizens. We need to modify the 14th so that the back door Citizenship path is slammed shut.

The same reasons that anyone moves anywhere. I have been to Mexico a few times and every Mexican I have met was perfectly happily where they were. You will always find people looking to move somewhere else looking for a better life including tons of Americans.

My wife and I actually were planning on moving to Mazatlan a couple of years ago. We had done a ton of research, starting making contacts, and everything. But, she decided to go to chiropractic school instead. I would have loved to move down there and still want to retire down to Mazatlan. That's a wonderful city and I try to visit whenever I can.

Thanks.

While I agree that there is a multitude of Americans bilking the system, at least they belong here. Illegal aliens dumping babies? Should not be entitled to anything but a trip back across the borders from which they came.
well they must come here for the warmth shown to them by american citizens or just to have all those kids to irritate all those taxpayers supporting them cause ya never see them doing those jobs most americans won't do do ya???

Short answer:

1 US dollar = 13 pesos (roughly I believe).

It's all economical imo, read up on Nafta aswell.
