Question So, with all of this illegal immigration stuff going on

do you feel that the USA has finally reached a tipping point on this issue?

I read on drudge where the mexicans are organizing rallies in 70 cities. Bloomberg says the new law is the US committing suicide. In phoenix mexican restaurants are without customers. Mexican cabs refuse to give rides to white people. On drudge yesterday there was a developing item saying that people were organizing a boycott of mexican businesses (it disappeared a short time later). A lot of texans want a similar law to arizona's. And so on. A lot of strong feelings out there.

It seems that a lot of people are tired of the status quo and are ready to do something about it (on both sides).

What do you see happening in the near future? An economic war? Political battles? More progress on a southern wall?

I say in response to San Fransisco's boycott, that Arizona tells all the illegal about the benefits of living in San Fransisco the harbor city, and issue them a 1 way bus ticket to San Fransisco and let the city of San Fransisco figure out what to do with the millions of them.

Don't know but I see it getting worse before it gets better. But if things are done right we should come out stronger on the other side.

Our country is under attack... the Mexicans are taking over and without ever firing a shot... Our politicians won't do anything about it for fear of alienating a future voting block that could keep them in office.

If we stopped all illegal imigration tomorrow, we'd still be twenty years too late.

Yeah, we're pretty much screwed.

Simply, I think citizens will continue to grow more vocal, as local governments follow their concerns and the illegals and federal government will fight the masses and force their agenda. It will lead to a head and violence will follow.

The majority of Americans want a common sense policy and enforcement of immigration.

Why this is so hard for the federal government to figure out is a testament to its ineptitude...

Obama and the democrats want to give out amnesty before the November Election. They realize that they are going to get their ass handed to them unless they can bribe a large amount of people to vote for them. By giving Amnesty, Obama and Pelosi think that they can get a super majority in the house and senate again and keep the tea party members out and the republican party.

Mexican nationals that have an issue with American immigration policy should look at what happens to Guatemalans caught illegally in Mexico....

Yep, its OK for Mexico to do illegal "round ups", but its evil here in the US....

It took a long time for us to get into this mess and it has caused alot of heartache. It will take a long time to fix it and it will be painful before it gets better.

We have to start somewhere though, and this sure seems like a good place to me.

I'm just real tired of hearing about freeloaders who don't want to participate in our society. I'm all for anyone coming here who wants to but they should be required to play by the same shitty rules that I am forced to play by.

What pisses me off the most about this whole situation, is our country has bent over backwards for this people that wouldn't piss on america if it was on fire. They sure dont mind raising the mexican flag, well you love mexico so much go back. American has gone to shit, and we all know that. Any country that will recognize spanish as a second language is in trouble. I would love to see this country rally and kick them out, but honestly I doubt it will happen in my life time. It sickens me how when you fill out a job app, you read bi lingual is a plus. I applaud the cities, and states that are trying to make a stand.

And just yesterday, he was chastising Arizona for kicking out illegals. Ah, the irony. From Punisher's quote, send 'em to NYC, too.

They are slowly choking that city as well. When we went up there at thanks giving, they were all over.

How in the hell does religion get involved with this? The below quote is from a reverend that plans on marching in downtown dallas to protest.

"We are not here as politicians," said the Rev. Eric Folkerth, senior pastor of Northaven United Methodist Church of Dallas. "We are here to speak to what we believe to be God's commandments."

I think it will get worse before it gets better. right now neither party has put forward a decent plan to reform immigration. but I think this will hurt the republicans more, because all of a sudden the people and the media have forgotten about the healthcare issue, and now immigration is the fiery issue.

There's nothing more to discuss about healthcare until the up and coming elections. The healthcare bill was passed, there's nothing more to debate.

What the fuck are you saying? Everyone know those are jobs that Americans will not do, and therefor illegals are needed o do them.

No way. There's no way lazy Americans will do those jobs. At least that's what the messicans would have you believe to justify them being here.

well I think a lot of republicans were hoping to ride that anger over the healthcare law into the elections, and that was probably the issue that would best sway independent voters. now it looks as if immigration might be the anger issue

It's just like that in Minnesota too, if you replace "white" with "mexican".

There was one guy that was a housekeeper where I worked that was from Belize, all the mexican guys called him "Apocolypto". lol

I think things usually have to get worse before they get better. And I mean better for everyone. Getting things in order will make the people in Mexico and in the US better off in the long run. I don't believe the overall majority of people want to get rid of illegals just because they're Mexican or whatever. People are finally figuring out that un-documented illegal workers just have such a huge negative long term effect on everyone involved including the illegals themselves. The answer is simple on paper. Plug up the borders, get a better system to document legit folks coming here for a better life, and enforce the laws/penalties for not paying into the system while they're here. That's pretty much it IMO.
