    (To repeat myself – here is the problem)

    Boston, Newtown, Aurora, Tucson, 9/11, all make it clear that our current lenient policies have failed.

    We have to face the truth about our situation, and act!

    All of these acts have one thing in common! They were committed by MALES!

    MALES are our greatest danger!

    All males must be registered!
    All males must be monitored

    If necessary we must make sure that they cannot reproduce!

    (Please note tongue in cheek

    Obama has done wonders for self deporting. Of course it is because there are no jobs for Americans let alone illegals.

    For essential safety, I think your net should widen to include “humans”.

    When Reagan pushed the first amnesty program for those in the country illegally, there were provisions to prevent people here illegally from being able to to find gainful employment. Legislators in states and DC were influenced by agriculture in particular and other industries in general to soften those laws, especially those that would punish the people HIRING the illegals.
    We are now aware of several elected officials who had illegals in their employ but that is just a the tip on the top of a very deep iceberg.
    Unless Congress is willing to severely punish/fine those who hire illegal aliens there will be no real solution.

    I have stated it here many times. Sour the milk and the illegals will go home. If we treated illegal works just half as strict as the do in Mexico we would have maybe 1/3 the problem.
    But Nooooooo we have the Mexican GOVERNMENT, encouraging their people to come here and work. Why they even have the money sent home worked into the budget!

    This is from 2011 so the President HAS been cracking down on employers for a while.

    And R Troll. Amnesty was done in 1949. Then again in 1978. Each time was to end the problem and start over with proper immigration protection. Anybody notice a pattern here?

    Scott, every department in the US gov’t is having to cut back man power because of sequestration, in addition, the US Coast Guard is talking about putting some of their ships and other resources into their home ports because of cutbacks to their budget. States and localities are also cutting back on police and if we use places that have cut police pay to the bone as an example, the temptation to supplement incomes illegally increases as pay decreases. What good are police if they turn a blind eye to crime?
    I agree that our borders are porous, but where is the money to pay for “beefed up security” supposed to come from? How will we afford the construction and maintenance of the Great Wall of America? And how do you prevent people from coming in by sailboats and kayaks if the Coast Guard and Police boat units aren’t in place?
    Walls aren’t the answer. Access to pay, healthcare, credit cards, and other vital services are AN answer. When I go to the hospital or a specialists office, I have to show an i.d. and my insurance card so they know I’m the person requesting service and will have help paying the bill. States and/or the federal gov’t should give a free i.d. card to residents and people who are in the country legally. For residents, this card should be sufficient to those seeking a driver’s license, permit for hunting, fishing, applying to college, work, and for voting. If I’m driving without my license, I don’t go to jail, but I do go to court. Happened once to me and once to my wife. With computers nowadays, a police officer could go to his car’s computer or cell phone and a picture of me could be sent to him from the DMV’s data bank.
    But as long as people are able to get jobs and money, they will find a way to live in the shadows. And as long as employers feel they are immune to punishment, they will use illegal labor in order to save money and increase profits at the cost of our nation’s security and rate of employment.
    I remember the amnesty program debate in ‘78. The need to find a way to make illegals from Mexico WANT to stay in Mexico was one of the arguments for NAFTA. The congress took that apart as well and created an opportunity for businesses to open factories in Mexico that could then ’export’ to the USA. It did NOT raise significantly raise the quality of life in Mexico the way it was supposed to and it DID lower the quality of life in industrial cities all over the USA, and still does.
    Beef up border security so that jobs stay IN the USA and illegals have NO opportunity of finding any legal pay or future in the USA and you bring jobs back to Americans and make employers afraid to hire anyone who is in the USA illegally.
    Walls aren’t the answer, regulation, supervision, and inspection are.

    You are correct Mr. Bane, however, under Mr. Obama, Mexican truck drivers are now legally allowed to drive cargo all across the nation. Their vehicles and drivers do not have to pass the same stringent tests of US semi drivers and quite frankly, there’s no telling what is in the containers being carried in those trucks without inspectors. We don’t have enough inspectors, but there are lots of trucks putting American drivers out of work and according to the truck driver’s unions, endangering American drivers on roads all over the country.
    However, that change in the law had plenty of Republican backing as well as Mr. Obama’s.

    I like the e mail(s) I’ve received listing all of the mass shooting perps as “Registered Democrats” and they should be monitored.

    Self-deportation was Romney’s idea of solving the illegal alien problem, not President Obama’s.

    Have any of you guys ever been into Mexico and seen how so many of the people live? Of course they want to come here to work and live.

    If true, then what do you propose we do about this , Harley ??

  14. Adrian Snare

    A wall or a fence is a stupid conservative idea.

    Me, I’d have nothing .
    Surely, no more than we have at the Canadian line.
    If I were Mexican, I’d feel highly insulted by all this crap.

    Not one penny spent to halt the tide of immigrants.
    But, they must find work and work hard – which I have witnessed.
    So, what is the problem ?
    I am in PA, NOT NM.

    @Respectful Troll

    This should have ANY law maker up in arms ..
    Fair ply ?
    Equality ?
    Are the Mexicans better than us ?
    And, IF we need more inspectors, why does this problem exist ?
    I rather doubt that this is a Demo or GOP problem..
