And yet the kind, caring, compassionate democrats in this country keep encouraging families to send their children here. Really? Why is that making their situation better?

Since Obama said we are not a nation building people. Just isolationists. The only option for democrats to try and encourage people to come here. Why not help those nations? Destroy the drug lords, kill the terrorists, give the tools to the good people to rise up against evil?

Instead, we're told to close our eyes and accept a welfare nanny state and the so called elected officials will keep the best interest of everyone in mind.

That's the biggest joke of all! There is a reason why we need informed voters. That don't elect based on race or gender. But, rather vote on strict principles that made this country great in the first place.

liberal Ted. What right do we have to interfere in the affairs of Mexico. We have no authority to go into their country and kill terrorists and drug lords. People vilify and demonize illegals. Illegals are portrayed as lazy and just looking for a government handouts. Then I read about terrible conditions, poverty, violence, government corruption in Mexico and central America. Then we act all shocked when desperate people cross the border. I do not support illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is more of an economic problem than criminal. I fail to understand how fences and deporting everybody will ever solve the problem. The root of the problem is economic inequality between the U.S. and neighbors to the south. How do we solve the problems that plague our neighbors. One partial solution would be to solve the drug problem in the U.S. Supply and demand. The drug cartels would not prosper if stopped the demand for their products in the U.S. We are part of the problem.

You make the most important point of all and one that I get very frustrated in not hearing more about with regard to the whole border issue. DRUGS. This trafficking of people for money is petty cash to the real issue. Smuggling drugs into the U.S. I'm sure that while the Border Patrol have been relegated to running day care centers at the checkpoints, the drug mules have been crossing without detection in massive numbers and we likely now have more drugs in America on their way to a school near you, me and anywhere else. One can sympathize with the human tragedy of living in those corrupt 3rd world countries and wanting to leave. However, as long as people can come in undetected, so can drugs. That is the main reason to do whatever is necessary to secure the southern border. When people can be stopped, so can drugs. And to be VERY judgemental, I say anyone who uses illegal drugs in America is a traitor to the country, and is funding evil regimes south of our border who get rich by looking the other way while pretending to want to stop drug smuggling.
