Some of them cross the border and others overstayed their visa. What is your opinion about this?

Maybe the bribing officials part.
I don't like the idea of deportation. They do improve small business, because they work for so cheap, but they still should be forced to do it the right way. That's how I see it, you can check out my first comment, to see my opinion on the matter.
Tell that the farmers families and border patrol's families who have lost their lives to this epidemic of illegal aliens crossing the border with drugs. I'm sure they want to be contributing members of society. Oh wait, they already are, drugs.
And we need to deport fools and traitors right along with these illegals for being blind as bats. Illegals take advantage, they see something free and they go for it. I would rather focus on the 23 million unmeployed Americans and LEGAL residents.
Its not that they don't contribute, its the fact they have shown a complete disregard to our laws by coming over illegally. Also, a lot of them do not want citizenship, they just want to earn money so they can send it back home.
They aren't involved in as much criminal activity as you might think. The amount of illegal Mexican immigrants that there are in this country is almost unfathomable. You see them all the time working for landscapers, renovators, contractors, etc.
We just went through the greatest recession since the great depression and you want to deport your fellow Americans because they cannot find a job? What about disabled veterans who need all of these entitlements to live?
They seem to think that coming illegally is the fastest and easiest way to come over. We need to make it easier to become a citizen, and harder to come over illegally. No matter what action we take, we can't deport them all. It doesn't make sense.
Deport bigots and racist...Interesting thought, how will we measure that? Since 95% of Blacks voted for Obama, a far higher percentage than whites voting for Romney, shall we conclude racial predjudice was a factor? How easy it is to scream racism
It is very easy for people to vote for someone of their own race. What takes some character, is to do what a lot of the white people did, in voting for Obama. Sure, that might not have been a good decision, with what he has done in office.
The point is clearly that such suggestions of determing who is racist is arbitrary and facist like. I see such a voting skew as clearly racially biased with such a statistical skew. While he may not. Making his thought upsurd in a free nation.
I was being intentionally prickish to make the point that deporting human beings is just plain mean. I wouldn't deport anyone. As for violence, that's a separate issue: drugs. Could solve overnight with legalization.
Yes, you can solve a lot of the drug problem by being stricter on it. You can't deport people. Not only is it mean, but we're not a third world country, we're America, and supposed to be a role model for the world.
There is nothing mean about deporting people who intentionally violate the law. It is just simply not practical to do it. There will never be the man power to pull it off without instituting a total policed state.
In terms of morality and law-breaking, I'll take a person crossing the border to provide for their family over someone who smacks their spouse occasionally or drives while intoxicated. Even so, I see no reason to treat anyone like cattle.
I don't disagree...But without a border that is enforced we have only chaos and a lack of sovereignty. There is then no point to maintain a separate nation. Not to mention the potential for terrorist to use the lack of border security against us.
Deporting someone is not mean It a punishment for breaking the law. Just like throwing other criminals in jail is not mean, it a punishment. It doesn't make sense to use our money to provide for the illegals by putting them in jail, so we deport them
The problem is neither is economically feasible. We can secure the border to stop the unregulated influx in the future. But we can't round up millions of people. There just isn't the man power.
That's why my solution makes sense.
