Mexico would be broke in a heartbeat if we completely closed the borders.
We should go ahead and get it over with (shock them into true capitalism)
But we might have a bunch of starving mexicans scrambling up here

What is the big deal- illegals only take the jobs that legal Mexicans don't want. (sarcasm off)
Mexico is run by drug money as every one knows.

I don't think the President cares about the situation.

Don't hold your breath waiting for Bush to do anything about the border problems. You will turn blue and drop dead first. He ain't gonna do a thang.

This is the single biggest disappointment of the Bush administration. No one in the White House has been able to articulate a coherent border/immigration policy. And the RATs are just as bad....this is a political opening you could drive a 747 through and they're so blinded by hatred of conservatives that they can't even see it. I salute the Minutemen and encourage them to persevere.

FROM THE ARTICLE..."They behaved admirably, with compassion for those they prevented from entering our nation illegally. This type of citizen action can help tremendously. It must be encouraged by the Bush administration however. The response President Bush gave to the Minutemen was hardly encouraging or supportive. He in fact managed to call them vigilantes. This was hardly an accurate way to describe their volunteer efforts to make America safer."
IMHO...The Minutemen project has brought the priorities of this administration re immigration into focus.
The project was an unqualified success. Citizens taking action to provide increased security and extra eyes and ears for undermanned BP agents fits right in with the volunteer mentality that Bush and HSA have stressed in the aftermath of 9-11, and also in his government / citizen social initiatives. So Bush misjudged this effort..okay...lets give him that. So now what does the admin do?
I judge as significant not only what a politician SAYS, but what he DOESNT SAY.
Since the Minutemen project initial phase has been completed...with Bush and others proved wrong in their assessment of 'vigilantism'...there has been no mention of it by Bush or anyone else in his admin.
Nor has there been any attempt to address the very serious charges that were raised recently regarding Border agents in the affected county being given orders to stand down from enforcement..in an attempt to 'make the numbers look good'...ie...diminish the perceived success of the Minutemen project. This is a serious charge...and deserves a thorough investigation.
The silence of this admin is deafening to me.
It equates to a stone cold political calculation...this bothers me alot.

This article says almost "Exactly" what I say about this issue. There are so many edges to this sword of illegal immigration. Like the writer says, it is inconceivable that the Bush administration has and continues to ignore this problem. All the great successes that GW has acheived will be negated when our next massive attack on US soil occurs. Note I said when and not "if". The Islamofacists have already shown us that they are both cunning and patient. Even the dumbest of enemies would exploit our borders to achieve their goals. I am not for a second hoping to get struck again, but am convinced that our terrorist enemies have already infiltrated and that it is only a matter of time before it happens. Needless to say if 20,000,000 illegal immigrants can cross our borders unimpeded, 1,000 or 2,000 terrorists could do the same thing.
All of GW's fine accomplishments will be negated and our WOT will almost seem fruitless if this scenario occurs.

He (President Bush) must now show the same willingness to spend whatever it takes to increase the Border Patrols manpower. This is a no-brainer Mr. President. To reduce the number of illegal aliens we need to step up and increase our presence on the border.

"This goal is not simply a matter of pouring more money into the Border Patrol either."
"Recently a group of patriotic Americans got together and formed a group called the Minutemen. These people took border security in their own hands. The Minutemen volunteered to stand guard at well-known border jumping spots on the Arizona border. They were effective. There is no doubt that fewer illegal aliens crossed into America."
This idiot does not live in San Diego County, California.
They all came through here after the border patrol pulled off their agents to cover Cochise County--where the Minutemen were patrolling (and setting off the alarms on the border).
"They helped; the border patrol agents welcomed their help."
Yeah, the BP loved the extra per diem they got.
You want border security?
Open your wallets, people.
I just sent this letter to Vicente Fox and to La Opinion in L.A.:
Querido Señor Fox,
No nos diga cómo conducir nuestro propio país, Vicente. Los Estados Unidos de América nos pertenece a nosotros, no pertenece a Ud. ni a los Mexicanos pobres que manda aquí.
Ellos no son "trabajadores sin documentos." Son ILEGALES. Son invasores. Han violado nuestra frontera sin permiso, y están viviendo y trabajando aquí ILEGALMENTE. Si quieren vivir y trabajar aquí, deben solicitar permiso por medio del proceso LEGAL de inmigración. Somos una nación de leyes, y los ilegales no respetan a nuestras leyes. No merecen quedarse aquí.
¿Qué me pasaría si yo entrara a México sin permiso, y si yo tomo un trabajo que "no hará ningún mejicano"? Claro. Me echarán en la cárcel.
Vicente, Ud. es un sin vergüenza y un enemigo de los Estados Unidos de América. Estamos viviendo en una época de guerra. ¿Cómo se atreve decir Ud. que no tenemos el derecho, como un país soberano, de defender nuestra frontera? Arregle a su propio país y economía, en vez de mandar acá a sus necesitados.
Los CIUDADANOS de los Estados Unidos de America
Dear Mr. Fox,
Don't tell us how to run our country, Vince. The US of A belongs to us, not to you or to the poor Mexicans you send here.
They are not "undocumented workers." They are ILLEGALS. They are invaders. They have violated our borders without permission, and are living and working here ILLEGALLY. If they want to live and work here, they must request permission through the LEGAL process of immigration. We are a country of laws, and the illegals do not respect our laws. They do not deserve to stay here.
What would happen to me if I entered Mexico without permission, and I took a job that "no Mexican would do"? Of course. I'd be thrown in jail.
Vincent, you are a shameless enemy of the United States of America. We are living in a time of war, and you dare to say that as a soverign nation we do not have the right to defend our borders? Fix your own country and economy, instead of sending us your poor and needy.
The CITIZENS of the United States of America
