Wouldn't you think that with the economy the going bad they would try harder to stop illegal immigration?
Being that so many americans are out of work. Wouldn't it be better if we kicked out a million illegals to give legal workers jobs? Well unicorno they also send most of their money over to other countries.

I disagree with you, La Mojada. Illegal immigration has hurt this economy. How? schools have to hire more teachers, pay for ESL programs, and more money for free / reduced lunches. Hospitals have to write off millions of dollars due to illegal immigrants not having money to pay for health care. Government paying money... More

You would think so. But most of our elected officials are idiots, and will not come down hard on illegals. In fact, read up on the Dream Act. That's a winner :-(

You realize how many illegals have LEFT due to lack of work? This is the least of our worries.

I would have thought that 9/11 would have done that. Now with the swine flu being brought into this country (via people returning home from Mexico and continued to be allowed across the border from Mexico) they would do more about anyone coming into the country from south of the border. And adamantly checking at all... More

Why the "illegals" didn't cause the bad economy; the greedy "native Americans' did. Yes, we send money to our families, so what and I am legal! I can spend my money anyway I want!

No politician is going to spend a dime on anything until forced to do so. Give a government department a million dollars and more than half will go to feathering their own nests with overseas junkets and flash chauffeur driven limos.All this means is there is less money to hire front line police to guard the borders.

Yes, deport the illegals and this would be a much better country all the way around.

You would think! But then again when you get answers like "As a matter of fact, contrary to popular belief, illegal immigrants receive NO form of "help" from the government such as food stamps or welfare. That is illegal." It makes you wonder how some people think! If something being illegal stops people from doing it... More
