There are no pros to this issue. They are here illegally. They broke the law by entering this country. They are all criminals. Bush is right. Build the fence to keep them out and no, I'm not racist. Other legalized people will take their jobs. We can and have lived without them in our country. Why are they here? Their... More

send them all on a raft back to cuba or a bus back to mexico. That would make sense.

I think the goverment should ship them all back and on the way back the bus run over a cliff then they could never sneak back in America :)

I've said it many times...we need to keep the "good" illegal immigrants who are contributing to our economy. the bad ones...criminals, thieves, gang members should be deported.

I think it is really kind of simple. You take all the ILLEGAL immigrants and send them home and severely fine the businesses that are hiring them. This will force them to hire American Citizens at a fair wage. Then the number of unemployed Americans will suddenly drop lower than it has been it several years.

Answered By: AV8OR - 5/22/2006
I wonder how many people who answer these questions by saying, "they're all illegal! send them home!" have any experience with illegal immigrants. How many of them have actually been to border communities. My family has been here longer than most European families, and I was born and raised 10 miles from the Mexican... More

I' let them stay to do the crappy jobs that no one wants, like migrant farms, but the other jobs, if they get caught, My first option is to deport them. My second option is to force them to join the military and have them earn their way to citizenship by helping support America's wars by being in the army.

Let's quit confusing these people with immigrants.They are illegal ALIENS!They don't want or intend to be U.S. citizens.Their intention is for us to become Mexican citizens.WAKE UP AMERICA!

I agree most everyone who is saying to send them back have no personal experience with the border towns. Get off your high horse and go check out how poor these people really are and how much hospitality they will offer you, although they don't have very much money they will still offer you food. You should all be... More

There should be government programs that are required for illegal immegrants to be required to be if they are in this country. Not because of some racism, but because we have laws here and if they're going to be here they must be required to obey them. Any caught not obeying them should be sent back immediately... More
