Fresh footprints, sightings on residents streets, if you look close enough, the signs are everywhere.

= 7000+ million people.
USA is 320 million people = less than 5% of world population.

Accept only high skilled or wealthy who will not be a burden. Stop this BS of accepting relatives and illegals. Obummer & Bush-43 have put us on a track to become 3rd world.
I can picture it now; Role reversal; when the mouse chases the cat. The Border Patrol Agents are running, running,and the Teenage illegals and chasing, chasing, in hot pursuit the Border Patrol Agents. “Here I Am! Border Man, I am here! I demand you arrest me now, and start all the paperwork, I am tired of chasing you in this desert. Estoy tan muy cansado! Parase Tocando. Stop playing!
We definitely need comprehensive immigration reform, but not what 0-bastard has in mind.
If they hurt themselves, guess what -- free medical care.
I remember those from over 20 years ago in San Diego.
Shoot Mexicans crossing the United States border.
If Huffington-Post hears about this little game, I guaran-Damn-tee you a bunch of heads will explode!!
Aim low. Lead slow.
Aim low. Lead slow.
If someone else hadn’t, I was going to post one of those.
Why is this news?
CALTRANS, the California Division of Highways, have had special hwy signs marking these illegal crossings for decades.
What's new about the practice now?
Nothing new, but the activity has increased as of late.
