This is one of the most "thoughtful" responses I have ever had to one of my questions. Not mentioned is Mexico's responsibility for their porous border and the resulting smuggling of people and drugs, something not unrelated to America's expenses.
Right, there is no reciprocal with Mexico as far as emigration goes. A Mexican friend, now a U.S. citizen, told me that if we want to legally live in Mexico, we must have $25,000 in a bank account to prove we won't be a burden on that country.
Lisa, if you just bump this up a notch you make the perfect case for the electoral college. Let states decide for themselves and get the heck off of national popularity. Federalism or not? Outside a city (rural) enforced. City not? Boundaries?
Nah, the Electoral College is BS. Why should a vote in Nebraska have more weight than one in California? Why does some random group of electors decide who becomes President? To me, that's the exact opposite of what I'm saying.
What is the difference between cities deciding what is best for them and states deciding what is best for them. National popularity should determine what is best for Texas? EC makes it a state choice? What makes it a city choice?
I think I understand you but maybe not. Someone who commits a felony of illegal border crossing is not a criminal?
It's a lot more complicated than a yes/no answer. All I can do is give you a link to all the different ways but I can't find it. Something about Mexi Gal stays if say US husband beats her up. (take 10 years the normal way)
Ptosis, I don't understand. The blog you linked seems to refute your answer and make the opposite point.
