    More reason to make immigration reform happen. More reason to make it harder to be here illegally, to work here... to save their lives.
    Dying in the heat - coming here illegally or legally shouldn't be a death sentence.

    I think they should offer aid of some type - not *to* illegals - but *to* anyone who isn't handling the heat, residency unquestioned. A shelter with some type of AC, water. . .something like that.

    Our laws and all that aren't actually worth dying for or against.

    Because they get their money from the very industries that rely on illegal workers..

    Yes, that EGZAKLY my point. This is not a Right Wing problem. It's a Congress thing. And you hit one of the nails right on the head. Thank you.

    There are other nails, in my opinion. They want the voter base; they want a new influx of workers to help fix the Social Security problem; others I can't fathom right now.

    Its a shame that these deaths do not discourage others from breaking tha law by invading a sovereign nation. Oh well at least they won't end up on the welfare dole.

    @ Sgt Rock -- There is no way to stop these people at the border. They will keep coming, risking life and limb, until we stop giving them a reason for coming. It is our own fault. Or, I should say, the fault of the legislators that are sworn to protect this country. And, I guess, by DEfault, that's us 'cause we put 'em there.

    There is a way to stop the criminal immigrants from invading our country. A dual fence with a land mine enforced no mans land in between the fences. Guard towers with NATIONAL GUARD (novel concept, NG that is) with orders to shoot to kill anyone who makes it through the mine fields. Stepped up Coastguard patrols. This should discourage most would be illegals with criminal intent from attempting to invade our country.

    I know you think this sounds like the Iron Curtain but there is a big difference. The commies were attempting to keep thier own people in we are trying to keep invaders out.

    You could also stop them at the border by making it immpossible to get social services, not allowing their children to attend school, refusing medical care (except for emergencies), jail time and huge fines for companies and their MANAGEMENT for hiring illegals, jail time for being here illegally, fines for renting to illegals and I think that would be a big STOP sighn to many. Why risk your life for such?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You cant afford that. It will cost many many billions of dollars not only to make, but to maintain.

    Now come up with something our country would actually do. Someone on this thread likened the illegals to people invading your home and said we should shoot them as well. It's not anything like invading your home. If you want to make that comparison at all, it's about walking into your backyard. Twenty-to-life, anyone?

    @ Mr. Vicchio -- I agree with you on all counts and again ask, "Why isn't this being done?" There's something in this mix we don't understand.

    The illegals are not invaders. Industry here in the good ole' USA rolled out the red carpet for them by hiring them, which is against the law. I see plenty of outrage against the illegals, but where in the hell is the outrage against the employers who are breaking the law, which is allowing the illegals to come here in the first place?
