    Should we treat illegals the same way Mexico does?

    Seeing how the president of Mexico blasted Arizona for its illegal immigration law I have to wonder if we should copy Mexico's immigration and anti-illegal immigration laws, in other words should we treat illegals the same way Mexico does?


    Yes the same exact thing
    Only some of their laws
    We should not treat illegals the same way Mexico does

    FOXNews.com - Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law During White House Visit

    President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon joined hands Wednesday in blasting Arizona's controversial immigration law, with Obama calling the legislation a "misdirected effort" after Calderon slammed it as discriminatory.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Too bad none of the reporters asked Calderon if his blasting Arizona for their anti-illegal immigration means that Mexico will repeal their anti-illegal immigration laws.

    Re: Should we treat illegals the same way Mexico does?

    I say we used a more humanitarian approach to the illegal immigration issue. Accept that most illegal immigrants are here to be productive and to make a living. Create an accessible avenue for them to become tax-paying citizens. If they do not wish to become citizens, then they should be able to get permanent or temporary residence or a worker visa.

    Why should these people be jailed just because they are trying to find a job?
    Why should these people be considered criminals just because they are trying to escape the war-zone that is Mexico?
    Why should these people be looked down upon for only trying to make a better life for themselves and their families?

    Lets not let emotions cloud our judgment. These people are human beings too.

    I think they should be treated more harshly than they are now, but I wouldn't go that far. However, I do think that they should not be allowed any sort of public services.

    because they are knowingly breaking the laws of a sovereign nation
    Why should these people be considered criminals just because they are trying to escape the war-zone that is Mexico?
    if mexico is such a warzone, they should apply as refugees, not cross the border illegaly
    Why should these people be looked down upon for only trying to make a better life for themselves and their families?
    you're right, and if a man snatches a purse off a little old lady because he's poor, we should just let him go, why should the rule of law apply to those at a disadvantage

    they also knowingly break the law, they're human criminals, just like any other.

    I didn't see anything in the cited article specifying what Mexican policies towards illegal immigration is. I'd have to know that before answering this poll.
