    Toronto has pockets of these all over the city with an Asian influx being the most recent trend. The various cultures is part of what makes my city great.

    As long as people coming from different lands don't bring their crime or the political problems of their homeland with them, I welcome all of them here in Canada.

    It shouldn't bother you given your moderate stance and all.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Are you going to take some into your own home or did you mean you were more interested in having others pay for your demanded humanitarian aid?

    As I understand it, and there's been some talk about NAFTA, these are not Mexicans making their way north because NAFTA has actually benefited Mexico and helped retain workers in that country. The problem is with non-NAFTA or free trade countries in Central America, south of Mexico, with no economy and no hope and the Mexican authorities seem to shuffle these people right through Mexico and on to America.

    As a result, it may be of benefit to America to start pumping more foreign relief money and economic benefit into these poor Central American countries and spend less in areas like the Middle East and South East Asia, if only as a means to stem the invasion from the south.

    You too ignoring the posted documentation on the ill effects of NAFTA on the Mexican worker.

    This popped up on FB.

    The current illegal immigration crisis has posed a number of serious problems for the state of Texas.

    Ranchers have been attacked, their homes broken into, and their lives threatened. Emergency shelters are being packed tightly as thousands cross over into America and have no place to go, taking up valuable resources.

    Is that a helicopter patrolling the border? Fancy that.

    Americanwoman provided a dubious report from McClatchy from over 3 years ago that blamed NAFTA for corn imports that caused millions of illegal alien farmers to enter the US. That's absurd. I live in Southern California, I'm not seeing former corn farmers among the millions of illegal aliens living across the region.

    So, since your finger pointing while not finger pointing, what's the plan?
    You have no idea what the illegal immigrants coming into your neighbourhoods did in Mexico. And if NAFTA had been the boom for the Mexican worker as promised, then they wouldn't be leaving for America. And the fair and balanced finger pointing is directed at both parties that have failed for 60 years to secure our borders. Blaming this all on Obama, or just the Democratic Party is immature.

    Ah, yes. Easy to see. You are part of the problem.
