    Yes or no?
    I don't see how we can do that. ONE thing that we can do, is put Mexico's feet to the fire about there being just SO MUCH corruption and allowing the cartels to pretty much run wild. I've a friend from central America: he says, as to this immigration wave, that the cartels are telling everybody down there that the US is going to close the border, whipping hysteria, and then charging $6,000 a head to bring'em across.

    Our border with Mexico should be like Las Vegas: crawling with money and tourism. The illegals that come here, ship American money home and the Mexican economy loves that.

    No jobs for illegals would be a good place to start.

    No. What a weird notion. A government is not responsible for the actions of private citizens abroad or the laws they may be breaking as a result of those actions.

    I did. And since you did not post on how we should hold a whole country responsible for some residents illegally entering another country I said no.

    If LA was partially responsible for the crime committed in Texas? Of course.
    If the US allowed active encouragement in it's nation to break the other counties laws? Of course.

    I do not have to suggest ways they could be held responsible to ascertain if folks think in general whether they should or should not be.

    The voice of reason, very nice... but it'll piss off all the Republicans that want cheap labor to cut the grass, clean the house, and keep up with the kids. (Think the Texas idea floating around a few years back.)
