    What is your belief or theory about illegal immigration?

    If you are in favor of having people come into the country illegal, or believe they should be made citizens etc. Give me your point of view. What should they be entitled to?  How do we solve the problem?

    If you are against illegal immigrants, tell me why, and what you think should happen to them or a solution to the problem.

    I always ask who doesn't know what illegal means? In the US we are out billions on them and not only do they get much more than citizens, I have just recently learned the legal ones are going in and holding their hand out for the freebies because they can. No one can ask them any questions. So stupid, at one time citizens needed at least two if not three ID's. Illegals also carry in third world diseases since they do not get screened as ones who come in legally. They do not have to have car insurance..these things are crazy! Free housing, food stamps, a check, getting on SS, it is ridiculous! It is going to be the fall of our nation and anyone who can't see that is very ignorant. They leave the door open to them and it is to let them in of course but it is also open to terrorists and drug mafia. Americans have let this go on just way to long and it doesn't look to stop. Now if Perry gets elected he loves them and gives them free education which I think they get all over the country anyway so it is a never ending drain on us. There can be no good ending.

    How do we solve the problem? Many Americans are complaining bitterly about undocumented immigrants and their complaints can be found everywhere.  However, it is much harder to find balanced commentaries that also focus on the benetifs that these visitors bring to our economy. The entire debate is so heated because the burdens of illegal immigration are not being shared with the people and institution enjoying the many benefits. Balance the cost-benefit scales and we may discover there is no problem after all. Q.

    Being raised in Illinois, I never had a problem with illegal immigrants; there weren't any around. However, I now live in a border state and the problem is HUGE. In New Mexico, we give them driver's licenses and allow them to get on welfare while working for cash under the table. The wages here are abymally low because of illegal labor. The recent drug cartel activity in Mexico has spilled over and innocent Americans are dying. Thank you ATF. At the very least, every border state should have a policy similar to the latest proposition offered in Arizona. There is no reason you should come here and not attempt to gain citizenship. A good friend of mine's father just obtained his citizenship and is fully in favor of locking down the border. I served with several immigrants in the Marines who used their service to expedite their citizenship papers. I commend them.

    I grew up in central Texas and have been living in San Diego since '96. 

    There are a number of things to consider here.  I see a number of different aspects to this issue, particularly living in a border town.

    I don't know that there are any "right" or "wrong" answers here.  But, after living here over 16 years, there are a number of things that I feel the majority of Americans would not realize, unless living for a number of years in a bordering state or city.

    Personally, I'm one of these people who really enjoys the Mexican culture.  One of the main reasons that I moved to San Diego was because I love Mexican food, Mexican and Spanish architecture, and find the people to be very friendly, warm, and peaceful (for the most part).

    There are a great many blessings to living this close to Mexico... but I can also see that there are a number of problems.

    I haven't really formulated an answer, so I don't think that I can just "throw something out there" that would fit what I am feeling on this topic.  It is so broad and so extensive that I feel it would require a great deal of thought and a lot of research.

    I care about my response, I don't want to make a statement either way on this.  I just hope that there is a lot of care and compassion with people when decisions are made on this topic.  People's lives and families are at stake.  I pray that any decisions will be made with the highest level of compassion.

    -----------

    I've been covering the topic of chemtrails -- and noticed that the city of San Diego had a huge surge of chemtrails shortly after the census was taken.  I'm afraid that they are using these partially as a "de-population" type solution.  This is really awkward to say, but all of the research seems to lead in this direction.

    Bring the troops back, give them a rest, invade Mexico, eliminate its bad elements, and make it a US State. Then make all the illegals who have taken advantage of our hospitality pay every penny of it back.
