Many people discussing the immigration issue come from the perspective that
Mexican immigrants have no claim to this land and the they, i. e. American
citizens have clear title. Therein lies the root fallacy in the anti immigration
We won the war, and the spoils of war was the land. Plus we paid for it.
That's another manufactured excuse for breaking our laws.
Secure a border that stretches from CA to Texas? At what cost? Never will be
able to secure a border so porous. The solution to illegal immigration is
south of the border. End corruption, poverty, and violence in Mexico and
Mexicans will stay in Mexico or come legally. I would likely leave a country
controlled by drug cartels and take my chances in the United States.
