“The elephant in the room for the politicians and the leading media correspondents are the questions they choose not to ask the individual illegal population that are willing to step in front of a camera. They need to ask if they are law abiding citizens from their own countries why they believe they are entitled to circumvent the laws within their newly adopted country? If they are willing to ask that question then they need to follow with if given the opportunity to earn citizenship through some form of immigration reform, should they be entitled to remain in the US while others who wish to migrate to the US are not given the same advantage?
While we have illegal immigrants from many different countries it is important that we differentiate between someone who is coming from an impoverished and oppressed nation and those coming from Mexico. The disingenuous nature of the Mexican government is one that can’t be tolerated. We cannot allow a government that knowingly supports the mass exodus of its citizens and is grateful for the millions of US dollars that are transmitted back into the country as family aid. While they have an even more strict version of the Arizona law for illegals in their country, they are willing to fight any enforcement of US laws that controls the migration north with political pressure and millions of dollars through legal defense funds.”

“You forgot to mention that Mexico is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with a GDP higher than CANADA's. Or that it's home to the world's richest man, who creates fewer jobs in Mexico than Walmart does. Or that Mexico is one of our top five trading partners. "Poor Mexico" is really "poor mouth Mexico", a wealthy country trying to stick us with the check for providing services it doesn't want to to the citizens it doesn't care about.”
