The irony is that the Promised Land to which they are coming will perhaps no longer be one if they continue to come. Their [illegal] immigration brings with it an individual promise, but also the seeds of a collective calamity. The absorbing country - the slow, convoluted, bureaucratic giant - is not capable of dealing with the stunning flood.

Which is why we have immigration laws in the first place.

Perhaps they [Americans] should simply accept the reality: The Mexicans will come, America will change. This is the way of the world.

Thanks, but no thanks.

One problem I see is that the infrastructure of a community cannot take unfettered immigration. we need only to look at Lewiston, Maine as an example.

As this country does change, a forced change the citizens did not want, I hope the "people" who get hit hardest, and I hope it is ruthless and without any mercy, are the businessmen, farmers and managers who were the main force pushing this nonsense. I hope that if Democrats get in charge, that this group of "people" are hit harder than ever before by punitive, painful taxes. It would be justice well served. I am done with the "free" market wing of the GOP, their dominance of the GOP long term cost is far too high.
