IMHO: Regan gave amnesty to 4 million, and we get 12 million more. What part of "If you forget history, you're doomed to repeat it..." do they not get????

If the percent of increase holds, we'll have 36 million illegals demanding amnesty in 2026.

It's all BS. Americans can see through it. American flags today ... Reconquista tomorrow !

The President should think of the Law of Unintended consequences. If he continues to support citizenship for people who have violated our immigration laws he will surely lose the support of his base and risk the progress made in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Democrats will smell blood and will do everything possible to unravel the War on Islamic Terror just to gain political power.

This rally affects my family personally. They kept us from getting to church this morning. The police warned us not to park on the street for fear of vandalism and we realized we be stuck in traffic for hours if we went down there.

Their first amendment right to assemble and speak interfered with my first amendment right to practice my religion.

Wait a minute . . . they don't HAVE first amendment rights because they are illegal.

Like I said many times about the illegal situation; It is too little too late. I hate to agree with someone like RINO Mike Bloomberg, but like he said, to deport 12 million illegals would not only be impossible, it would absolutely devastate the economy if you could do it. Here in NYC, the amount of businesses that run on illegals is mindblowing, it would just blow a major hole in the economy.

To me the only answer is to annex Mexico, make it something on the level of Puerto Rico, a commonwealth. I mean we are not talking about a country that produces cheese eating pond scum like France, this is a country that produces hardworking people of faith. I would not be against that in the least. Plus if we did, the border would then be reduced to a 3rd of the size to that of Guatemala. To me it just seems like the only solution and a better deal for everyone involved. I mean for shiets sake, DC is a commonwealth and look what that produces? Re-elected crack smoking Mayors and multiple homocides that the media ignores. Who needs it? Put a fence around DC instead, move the White House to Texas.

My formerly Catholic, legal-Irish-immigrant husband says that's true. But we Baptists are still downtown and we're growing.

To the contrary, it would be a major benefit to the economy as real Americans would get higher wages that would stay in America. This would translate into more economic growth for America. We would increase those in middle class. And, we would end the waiting line of American citizens at emergeny rooms in hospitals while illegal aliens get free medical care at taxpayer expense.

The only real loser would be those business that benefit from cheap illegal labor. Deportation of 12 million illegals would be difficult but far from impossible. And, if we only get half of them out of the country it would be a wonderful achhievment.

Just saw something on Fox with video. The talking head made the comment that there were American flags flying at the rally rather than the Mexican flags we saw before. And the first video they showed did snow American flags. however, as they continued to pan and show video, guess what? Mexican flags again. Interestingly the Fox newsgirl said nothing about those.

Someone on another border suggested a solution that seems to me like it might work.

Just as in the War on Drugs, local police confiscate assets (vehicles, property, cash) of drug dealers, why couldn't local law enforcement confiscate assets of illegals? Surely very shortly, we wouldn't have to deport them, they would leave to avoid having their assets taken.

I'm cure there must be a hundred reasons why this wouldn't work but I can't think of one.

Oh sure they have rights. I just heard the pretty-head teleprompter reader on Fox News tell me that this was the largest "civil rights" protest ever. So now I guess demanding to be able to break the law in a foreign country is a civil right.

Bush's Nephew Rips Armed Border Guards (Pepperball guns) Duluth Superior ^ | 8/21/2004 | Mark Stevenson

Posted on 08/21/2004 5:08:47 PM PDT by 4.1O dana super trac pak

MEXICO CITY - President Bush's nephew, campaigning for overseas votes in Mexico on Saturday, called the federal policy of arming U.S. Border Patrol agents with plastic pellet guns "reprehensible."

Speaking in a mix of English and sometimes-halting Spanish, George P. Bush said his uncle was not to blame for the gun policy, which has angered Mexicans. He instead blamed it on "some local INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) guy who's trying to be tough, act macho."

"If there has been American approval for this policy, that is reprehensible," Bush said of the guns, essentially paintball projectiles filled with chile powder. "It's kind of barbarous."

What do you mean, to annex it? Don`t know, I have no idea about how that works financially. Hey, I just drive a taxi lol! It seems to me though we have no choice, I let`s look at this seriously, are we going to expel 12 million people? I can`t see how that can be done. The democrats would have a field day comparing Bush to Hitler expelling the Jews.

I got no problem at all with Mexicans, I`ve worked with them and you won`t find better people, but it seems this illegal problem has been allowed to happen for too long, it is too late.

The only reason they seem to go the illegal route is because they can`t afford the money it takes to go legal, I really don`t think it is the learning the English part that prevents them. Most Mexicans I meet can speak English, it is the $1000 required to go legal that makes them go illegal. I just think an annex of Mexico is the best route, expanding US territory/interests hasn`t hurt in the past, but like I said I have no idea how that works. Look at Alaska, what the hell are we doing with that? Yes OK, to protect against Russians and we get oil, but right now that`s about as far away from mainland US as you can get, Mexico is right next to us plus we get all that Gulf of Mexico oil.

Exactly:

a) stronger border enforcement (a fence)

b)ban wire transfers to Mexico (they have to carry cash back in)

c)if they are caught here, civil forfeiture and deportation

d)civil forfeiture for employers of illegal aliens

Wages for meat packers will double the instant Tysons has a whole factory confiscated for employing illegals.

Freggin` a-holes like that totally destroy any argument for illegals or any solution for all this. They come across as nothing more than invaders..These people aren`t Mexicans, they are pond scum. If I was Mexican I`d kick their arses from here to Oaxaca.

We don't have to expell them. Take away the incentives to come here (jobs, free medical care, any social services, no possibility of EVER getting a green card later if caught illegall in the US) and many will tale themselves home, just like they brought themselves here. Anyone who says it is not possible either doesn't want it done, or isn't very imaginative.
Oh, and having lived most of my life in the southwest, I can say that Mexicans are like everyone else. You have good and you have bad. I find it interesting that almost everyone who posts on the subject says they are the best people there are. That simply is not true. They are like everyone else, some good, some bad.

If we annex it, fix it (using their resources), and then turn it back over, that's one thing. Not one tax payer dime should be used. Let Tommy Franks run things until economic reforms are instituted, and the corrupt are all rooted out.

As far as deporting the 20 million, here. The europeans and canada are deporting some thousands a month of their illegals. No one is suggesting all at once.

I don't know about you but I'm not big on political family dynasties. I think 2 Bushes in the WH and one as Governor is plenty enough. Dynasty families get more pathetic as the generations go on (Kennedy).

Yes I see what you are saying, that`s another thing, Mexico is corrupt as all hell. I was talking to one Mexican a few months ago who was telling me if you want the cops down there to do anything you have to pay/bribe them. Can you imagine? You just got robbed and call the cops and they all got their hands out. Plus there is this sicko sex stuff going on down there, all the sickos from all over the world go down there, all the pedophiles, the rapists, the serial killers because they know they can get their rocks off without being hassled. I can just imagine the costs of getting that country to get its sheit together, everyone wants to be paid off. Damn man, f- it... Build the fence lol!
