Do you think illegal immigrants from Mexico should be deported?

Updated on September 3, 2016

Should illegal immigrants be deported?

See results

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?

By the Numbers

In the first part of 2013 over 70,000 illegal immigrants were deported.

Illegal immigrants make up roughly 5.4% of the nation's labors force.

84% of illegal immigrants have a child under the age of 18 born in the U.S.

16% of illegal immigrants have a child under the age of 18 not born in the U.S.

In 2014 there were over 675,000 apprehensions of illegal immigrants by U.S. customs and border protection.

In 2014 there were over 575,000 illegal immigrants that were deported from the United States.

      One problem that we have is that there is another almost 5 million illegals that come from other countries not named Mexico. But if we look at it another way then we might understand what they are going through. You can get kidnapped in broad daylight and killed, you ever hear about the school kids that disappeared a few years back and were found burned and buried? Maybe if we came together as people instead of white, black mexican and other maybe then we can have actual dialog about the immigration issue. As of now everyone has their own agendas and are bias. I am from Georgia where illegals stand on the corner and certain people pick them up to work and help build houses because it is cheaper for the contractors.

      We should only deport those committing criminal acts. No need to deport everyone. Anyone promoting that is ridiculous. This problem is sort of taking care of itself. The net amount of those coming over the border has declined slightly.

      I hope the government of Mexico will start to fundamentally change (from a regulatory perspective). They recently opened up their oil industry, which is helping to lower prices. It would be great to see the same for all of their natural resources industries. Nabisco and other American food companies have huge operations down there now. That will raise incomes.

      Great topic. I'm sharing everywhere.
