    You don't see educated people crossing the border, just the people that are too lazy to make it in Mexico.
    I must be looking at different Mexican immigrants. I was under the impression they worked their butts off.

Nope, no English anywhere, not on the bottom, not even in fine print. I think the growers have given up getting Americans to do field work, even in a time of high unemployment.

    We used to harvest our own crops. Our own citizens actually went into the fields, sweated and labored in the heat, and earned a few bucks. No more. Why is that?

    Are so many so fat and out of shape that they can't physically do hard work any more? Is it just easier to life off of the welfare state? Do we think farm work is somehow beneath us?

    Whatever it is, it does not bode well for this country.

    We don't have to use the U.S. military but we could use more of the technology that the military uses to prevent infiltration to stop and capture the illegal border crossers.

It worked well for Austria until they joined the Schengen area. I'm not just talking about building a taller wall but complete militarization of the border. It solves your illegal immigration issue for sure and will greatly reduce trafficking of all kinds across the border. What do you Americans think especially those who live near the border?

    I live in Mexico and have been living in Mexico for almost 14 years.

    These people are lazy people to an extreme.

    Mexicans think the streets of th US are paved in gold, some have told me that exact thing, and all they have to do is cross the border and money will be thrown at them.

    When they get there they find out the reality of the situation.

    Many are going back because there isn't the financial success they expected.

    Where did the idea come from originally that the Mexicans were crossing the border to better their life and just work an honest days work?

    If they put the same effort into working in Mexico that they do to cross the border and hide from the authorities, they could do very well.

    There are plenty of opportunites in Mexico for educated people, but since a loser will never get educated, he cross the border where his education means nothing.

    Please do not think a border crosser is anything to lok up to.

    Most of them abandon their families to go to the US and start another one with a woman from there.

    there are kids everywhere who haven't seen their fathers in years and it does affect them.

    My girlfriends father is one of those border crossers.

    My girlfriend doesn't even know how many half-brothers and sisters she has because this man has children from many different women in 2 countries, and he was never there for her or he sister, and they were the forst two he produced.

    we have plenty of mexican immigrants here. Not to sound too "racist" but they sure do work a lot harder than some of the other minorities in the area.
