who woulda thought immigration would have been one of the top issues for voters?

america seems to be getting xenophobic.

Why would xenophobia after an attack from without be a surprise?

well, for one thing, most of the anger and hate seem to be focused on the mexicans.

i just think we gain alot more than we lose by letting people in

a few bad apples will slip thru, but its a price we have to pay.

Funny, it's not the conservative rednecks that like to abort black babies.

No, they insist they be allowed to be born.  Being able to eat after they're alive though, not a real concern.
Remember when I was at the picnic - the company picnic - and I hit the ball over the fence? You guys didn't think I'd catch it too but I did. I'm fast as s**t - 17 stolen bases in '72, 18 in '91.

They should experience anxiety if they are illegal.  If they aren't, but are worried for their friends who are--whose fault is it?  No one made them illegally come into the US.  I am tired of people crying when they finally have to pay the consequences for their actions.  Your choice, your problem.

No, those things could have caused a great incentive, but in and of themselves they did not make anyone come to the US illegally.

Yes.  And, by the way, Mexicans do not live in "insane" poverty. (I would reserve that title for the people living in war torn and famine ravaged parts of Africa). Rather, there is more money to make up here than down there.

Not judge, but make an educated opinion.  Either way, they weren't made or forced to come up here.

Gun or no gun-they were not forced.  If anything they are as guilty for the state of their economy as their government is.  They have done nothing to try and reclaim their civil rights or to demand an fair and accountable government.
