But if you read right wing propaganda then facts will elude you.

The good people of the United States are sick and tired of having Texans just drive into America without travel visas or documents. Then these texans stay and take up resources, and fart in the restaurants.

They are generally good people and work harder and have better family values than the typical American. We will be stronger with them. It will take several generation for them to become the vacuous self absorbed weaklings that my coworkers and colleagues are. We should want them if we were smart, but we are not collectively. That’s why a dimwit like Trump is potentially going to be president and the likely president will be a fake liberal who will promote the old Reagan agenda. I don’t think the immigrants would be so dumb as to fall for what America falls for.

Looks like Mexico, smells like Mexico….. It’s Mexico.

Lock them up in private prisons and deport them, too?

Fiscal responsibility and economic planning are key secondary reasons — we need to know that those who come here requiring financial assistance are the most deserving of US taxpayer money and that those who come here provide the US with exactly the labor pool we need to give our economy a maximum boost. And lastly, this is a big planet — there are many other countries from which immigrants can come to America other than Mexico. We should establish iron control over our borders, liberalize our legal immigration process, then put in place rules which would not favor an immigrant from one country over an immigrant from any other country. If Mexican-Americans and other Hispanics don’t support that proposal, at least we’ll know with which country their loyalty truly lies.
