    We are the U.S.A. If we really wanted to do it? Of course we could! Duh

    No.....The real problem is that rich businesses & individuals employ them as cheap labor. (including Mitt Romney as gardeners on his Massachusetts mansion) Romney fires landscaper after Globe inquiry cites illegal immigrants - The Boston Globe

    (Isn't Romney one of the front runners for the GOP Presidential nomination in 2012?.....Oh yeah........The GOP really wants to stop illegal aliens from coming into this country alright!!)

    Re: Is It Possible To Seal Our Borders?

    We seem to be split right down the middle on this question.





    Let me add a new wrinkle here:

    Considering the standard thinking is that the Dems like illegal aliens because....... they are just poor people looking to improve their lives & a potential source of votes

    & the Repubs like them... because they are a source of cheap labor to work in their factories, mow their lawns & great whipping boys for jingoistic "Yelling Points"....


    Which Party is really more interested in ending illegal immigration in this country??

    (or are both major parties just paying "lip service" to this problem while snickering at us taxpayers?)

    Making immigration requirements much easier would help greatly. Millions are going to come whether we want them or not. Immigration can be very beneficial to an economy, especially one with a declining birth rate. However, it's best not to keep them all underground where they can only work for low wages and depend on and drain our entitlements and welfare.

    The fact that Mexico is where they are must be a major embarrassment.
    I wonder how the politicians there explain this to their people..
    This would be most interesting..
    The truth about Mexico would be even more so..

    Of course it's possible. Not with this Congress, but it's definitely possible. I don't understand how somebody can say it isn't possible.

    Of course it's possible, but the real question is, "Is it practical, and will it create numerous unwelcome side effects?"

    Well....At this hour exactly 1/2 of your fellow poll responders are saying exactly that........That it isn't possible.
    How do you explain that fact?

    It's not practical to perfectly seal the border. But the numbers can be reduced significantly by erecting barriers, use monitoring combined comand and control capeabelities to target areas of illegal entry. Use intelligence, that is, send spies to find out ahead of time when and where illegals will attempt to cross.
