    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.

    I think this is true of most real first generation immigrants no matter where they came from. They worked to get here, establish a life and go through the citizenship process. They are invested.

    Fascinatingly, Scotland has something called 'The Right to Roam', and people are allowed to traverse or camp anywhere, so long as they are not breaking any other laws, nor causing damage to the property. In addition, if it is private property, if asked, they must leave -- but they can't be asked to leave if it's public property.

    Not really pertinent at all, but your comment made me think of this.

    Which, of course, is why we've discovered and closed all of the tunnels they've already built.

    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.
    No, just substandard wages.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Farming doesnt pay enough. And farms are so far away from the city where most people live, itd be pointless to work there. That's why Americans aren't taking those jobs.

    It pays more than not having a job.
