Comments on: A costly U.S.-Mexico border wall, in both dollars and deaths http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2009/10/02/borderwallcosts/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: lynnejaj http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2009/10/02/borderwallcosts/comment-page-1/#comment-18354 Mon, 05 Jul 2010 20:26:36 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/?p=6014#comment-18354 What’s wrong with demanding Mexico pay all cost to keep ‘their’ people out of ‘our’ land?

Mexico seems to have the easy part.

Why don’t the Mexicans fight for their rights like the good ol’ U.S.ofA. fore fathers and mothers did?
Well, I guess since we make it easy for them to come over to the U.S., why waste their time fighting when they can cross a boarder and enjoy what’s already been done.

Illigals have more rights the the ‘born here’ people.

Oh, I forgot, the also cross the boarder to pop out their kids………that way they will be ‘born here’.

Today, on the anniversary of the Berlin Wall, mark my words: This wall too shall come down. And then all of you radical xenophobes will ponder what could’ve been done with all that wasted money.

You aren’t any different than the mexicans… You just got lucky you were born a couple of miles apart.

That country is and has always been a disaster. Hell, 90% of the people there live in poverty, are uneducated and do not have the backbone to stand up to the top 10% and force them to get out, and make their country better. It is a hell of a note that Mexico is over what 1000 years old and the US is 300 and something, but Mexico is and always has been a total wreck. Well, get off out backs and take care of your own country, and get out of ours. WE DO NOT WANT YOU HERE.

If you are not wanted somewhere you should stay home and out of other peoples homes, countries or whatever. Unwanted people need to stay OUT. This is also a war of sovereignty people. These are criminals, breaking our laws, coming into our country and homes, robbing from us and stealing what DOES NOT BELONG TO THEM. I believe they should be arrested, prosecutes and put into prison, and then after release, photographed, fingerprinted, DNA taken and all put into a national database, and then deported, so that if they come back to this country, they will be immediately arrested and reprisoned, this time for life. These people can be and are dangerou. Look how many illegal Mexican aliens have committed, horrible, brutal, disgusting crimes in this this. They are a menacious and blight on this country, and they breed like rats. Hispanics need to discover birth control. They can barely afford to have one child, but do they stop there. NO! They have 4,5,6,7,78,9 and never stop. And please do not start with their religion, because it is a bigger sin to have children you can not take care of, than it is to have no children.

Open the border!Make Mexico a new state. Teach social responsibility in the national school system. Teach people how they can work together to make democracy work. It’s about time the U.S. took responsibility for it’s actions and it’s also time for Mexicans to become responsible citizens.

That would be the most effective use of our military. Besides, all the Mexicans are coming here anyway, so why not just take over?

If their country wasn’t in such a mess then less Mexican’s would want to come here. I can’t blame the decent people of Mexico who want to get out from under the cartels and poverty in Mexico. I think Jason makes a good point. Legalize all drugs. It would shut the cartels down almost immediately. And it’s not like the drugs aren’t already here. Ask any police officer or DEA man. Mexican drugs can be bought anywhere in America right now. Education, clinics to help the drug users and strict drug testing by employers will shut the drugs down. Particularly when there is no longer a lucrative drug market for the criminals. More than half the people in this country are incarcerated because of drugs. Making drugs illegal is causing substantially more damage than legalization ever will. Prohibition didn’t work either. Make drugs legal, tax them and shut down the criminal enterprises.
