Something makes me want to say "shut up you idiot" but I'm not gonna do that
wasn't 9/11 done by people that had come legally?
Oh so they GOT here legally. Yeah the expired visas are a problem for sure. But really once somebody has been admitted (or has illegally entered) you will either have to put an ankle monitor on them (that cant be removed) or only allow them to exist in a fenced compound.
I suspect that the bulk of illegals are trying to make a decent living and provide for families. That is the way the US was built.
Now I dont have a problem with increased border security either. Bring them home from the desert and let them guard the borders. Mexico wont like it, tough. They are in many cases a pass through for other countries' citizens.
Another option might be to help the other countries to build their economies so that traveling and leaving family and friends isnt a great option.
You could make the argument that more financial damage is done by the illegals interms of uncollected social security taxes, income taxes, and utilization of services than 9/11 or the boston marathon bombing.
Of course the loss of life and limb has no real financial equation.
But if you want to worry about a current real and present danger, more people die from gang related violence (with and without illegally possessed firearms)
I still say the risk, although admittedly real, is pales in comparison to the crime related deaths that occur within the borders by those that are here legally.
us was founded by immigration without permission by many people from the original nomads to all the european conquerors. so how does one stop something they founded? the us could stop offering free services to those that don't pay into the system maybe, but not much else without being hypocrites
Did the first Americans even have an immigration policy?
It does not matter if they had the policy or not as well a how much time has passed. The point still stands: how hypocritical would it be for that to be done? Now, illegal immigrants break the law, but there is no nee to get rid of legal ones.
how far back do we go to find the first immigrants? some native americans came from far north and some came up from the south so migration in america has been going on since the dinosaurs as they migrated here too.
what makes sense today? let's have everything outsourced so that we are not able to be self sufficient. how about we worry about really important stuff that can actually ruin the country, we can use all the people willing to support rebuilding our manufacturers and getting the "made in USA" tags back. illegal immigration is just democraps and republican'ts diverting your attention from what's really necessary
I doubt those immigrants want to destroy a country where they can make money to send to their families.
What did 9/11 terrorists want to do? You can't equate them to immigrants. That's also a lie. We don't just let them in. They sneak in ILLEGALY, most to try and get a better life. How are they leeching us dry? I do agree that they shouldn't get services that citizens get but if it's life or death.....I also don't agree that the children born here on purpose should be Americans if at least one parent isn't American, but plenty have good intentions. .....How would you feel if someone called you a cracker? Don't use slurs on those people. Hmmm.....now I get what you're saying, but those who orchestrated 9/11 came through LEGALLY. It wasn't that difficult for them to get through. We shouldn't judge every foreigner or person that looks like one with ill intent though. People like you make me safe, honestly. I understand loving your country and not wanting people to abuse it, but radical means will not help.
Why stop? Imprisoning people is a good business.
Your grammar sux. You shouldn't worry about it you'll die of old age before it happens you bitter berry.
Mexican 911? what kind of tragedy are you envisioning?
It was a question, not a statement. If your going to evade a reasonable question try to be intelligent about it. And what other border does the US share that has an immigration issue? And can you tell me what kind of disaster your imagining? Or do you just prefer vaguely inflammatory rhetoric to detail? Do you prefer insult to discussion?
