"The federal government continues to tell us that there are 12 million illegal aliens currently living in the United States. However, the actual number in undoubtedly four to five times higher"

"Using the Border Patrolís own data and considering the relative ease with which drug smugglers and illegal aliens make multiple crossings into this country, the more realistic number is much closer to 60-70 million."

Drug abuse is bad, but the drug war is worse.

G-
No other issue gets me more pissed than this. Wish I knew the answer or better yet i wish our elected officials had the answer. The un-controled mexican migration into this country will in my opinion be one of the biggest threats to our country. IMO,they have NO desire to be part of American way of life but rather just get what they can I send it back to Mexico. I look at things rather simplistic but if you think of scenario where the SHTF, who do you think will stick around and defend our great country. I would guess most of the mexican immigrants would head south. Others could flame me for this opinion but...DONT really care, it really does piss me off. We have all seen on the news the young Mexican kids at the high schools raising the Mexican flag over the American flag. Just a sign of things to come.

That is messed up ^^^^^^ I think we should all put stickers of the state that we are from on are back windows drape the U.S flag over the hood of are trucks and all parade threw the main streets of Mexico city. but that would be racist. wonder how they would take it if 200 million U.S flag wearin Americans did this in Mexico bet there not as nice as we are to them.

Illegal aliens wouldn't be a problem in our country if it were impossible to find work. Stop putting all of our efforts into boarder patrol. Change their role to finding and prosecuting american businesses who hire illegals.

This sounds good in theory but i think that it is almost as unattainable as stopping them from coming in.

IMO what needs to happen is the laws need to change so that the lure of coming here is very low. Make SURE they are paying into the system, if everyone is paying in, then the issue of hiring illegals becomes significantly muted.

I'm sorry, but unemployed illegal aliens are worse than those with jobs. IMO drugs and crime then become high paying jobs with very little downside. Get popped? No biggie, make bail and head south.

I don't know the numbers, but there are a s#itload (about 10million IIRC) of illegal aliens incarcerated in Texas.

You do not recall correctly. There are "only" about 8 million people who are currently incarcerated in the entire country.
