Do you think illegal immigrants from Mexico should be deported?
Should illegal immigrants be deported?
More than just Mexicans
There were 11.3 million illegal immigrants in the United States in 2014
There were 1.2 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. from Asia
There were 5.6 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. from Mexico
So if Donald Trump and the others say they are going to build a wall to keep out the Mexicans that come across the border illegally, what about the other 5 million? Do we give the other illegal immigrants that are not Mexicans a pass or do we build a wall around the entire U.S?
Just to make it clear, we all know that it is virtually impossible to build a wall completely across the border to keep the Mexicans out and it is even more improbable to maintain such a wall if it was to get built? right?
Why do we have a problem with Mexicans in this country?
With the ever growing number of immigrants coming into the country illegally, what should the U.S do?
