With 30 million or so illegal aliens sending tens of billions upon tens of billions of U.S. Dollars out of our economy and into Mexico -- an activity highly encouraged by the Mexican government, incidentally -- of course Mexico is now doing better than the U.S., and the U.S. is foundering.

Thirty million illegal aliens? What is your credible source for that number?

So now we do business with criminals and those who have little respect for law and are really just opportunists? Is it that the end justifies the means....even if that means breaking the law to get what you want (living in the US, not necessarily becoming a legal citizen)?

We might as well do business with the Palestinians or the Iranians or the North Koreans, too, while we're at it.

They pay the bulk of the taxes. Are your taxes going up when theres go down. In any case we all pay for higher taxes in the form of higher prices and lower wages. So rippin on them hurts us all.

Wrong is wrong, legal is legal- If I break the law, I can expect punishment. By inaction or amnesty, our government discriminates against its own citizens then sues them when they wish to enforce the law themselves. If we had one murderer, would we treat that one differently than we would a million murderers? or vice versa?
