The Borders

Sometimes we forget.

Latinos who vote have thoughts

like any others.


Jobs, safety, taxes:

Do we want security?

We might pay the most.


Illegals cost us.

They reflect poorly on us.

They take our scarce jobs.


We came legally.

Some were granted amnesty.

When does it all stop?


Latinos in America are comprised of citizens, legals, and illegals.

America's Latinos, citizens and legal residents, seem the forgotten voices crying for greater border security in 2016. You need to listen to their voices, if you are a politician and you want their votes!

When illegals cross America's still imperfect southern border with Mexico, who is hurt the most?

American Latinos, and Latinos within the United State who may not be citizens but who are legal residents, are among those who feel the direct negative impacts of illegal immigration from south of the U. S. border with Mexico.

Illegal immigrants, mostly from Mexico and South America not only compete for jobs with some Latino citizens and legal residents, those same law abiding Latinos are usually the first to feel the effects of the South American drug cartels, the Mexican Mafia, and Hispanic street gangs,

American Latinos in some cases suffer by being type cast with the character of so many of the illegal immigrant population now in the United States, even being stopped on the street and adversely questioned in job interviews. at their work sites, and at their businesses.

In protests about the still failing border security, Latino citizens and legal residents are among the active protesters calling for tighter borders and for no amnesty for the illegal immigrants.

If politicians really want to court Latino votes in 2016, they would be well-advised to listen to these Latino voices and stand behind efforts to have effective and comprehensive immigration reform and effective border security.

Questions for presidential candidates to consider answering might include "What would be the effect. if America was to close southern entry points one or more days a week to protest Mexico's own lax border controls, and the Mexican governmnt's failure to control and punish their professional smugglers?"

Sorry, Mr. Trump, I suspect that is a question you have already considered and have an answer for, especially now when Mexico's oil revenues are already holding back their economy.

Periodic, random closing of those entry points might also encourage American manufacturers who depend on their factories in Mexico and cheap Mexican labor to reconsider bringing such work back to the United State of America, but I imagine you may have thought of that, too.

Not every mile of America's southern border is desert or river.

      Who is checking to see if illegal Latinos are voting? NO one.

      bradmasterOCal - I am confused. Surely, if it is happening, someone should be checking and expose it. But I am not clear on why you bring it up here in relation to Latino citizens and Latino's who are legal residents?

      Because there are 11 million illegal Latinos in the US, mostly in the West, and we can't tell them from your Legal Latinos. What is a Legal Resident mean in relation to being able to vote.

      NO one is allowed to verify whether the voters are citizens and have the right to vote, at least not here in CA. So, the answer is no one is checking to see who votes in our elections.

      The democrats have shunted every effort to check on who is voting, and should they be voting.

      Dear Brad, I am a poll worker in local, state, and federal elections and the voters must be legally registered to vote. If the voter rolls in your part of California (Orange County?) are bogus, work with the League of Women Voters to bring some action.

      That is a good question, and I sure hope that these folks are allowed to vote and not sent away.

      aviannovice - Legal citizen Latinos, if registered, are entitled to vote, and I too hope they will all vote their conscience and study the candidates.
