If so, how is it possible? How do you feel about "anchor" babies?

    Not completely, at least. The problem here isn't that Mexicans don't respect or appreciate the law, it's that conditions in Mexico for some of them are so awful it's worth the risk. I say we invade Mexico.

    Okay, "invade Mexico" was intentional hyperbole. I don't really think we should do it.

    Though it's fun to think about.

    P C would have to be thrown out and borders completely sealed and it might seem harsh at first but all illegals need to be rounded up and tossed out...end of story. If they want to be citizens learn english and apply....

    post a bunch of white supremacists at the border and tell them the more they stop from crossing, the more beer they can have when their shift was over, and people will stop trying, after the first few thousand.
    Other than that, in any humane way, no, they haven't been able to stop illegal drug and gun trafficking, why would they be able to stop illegal immigration?

    First you have to start by rounding up the illegals in this country now and deport them. Men,women, and children outta here. Then you gotta build a huge fence all along the border. make that an electrical fence with enough juice to zap a human like a bug, dust, nothing but shoes left. Have a few big gates along this fence. At each gate have immigration besides patrol. Anyone that wants to come in needs to show a high school diploma and proof that they have some sort of trade. They need to speak the American language. If they meet whatever criteria there is then you send them off to a hospital via government truck or whatever, to have a tracking device inserted into them. This device will allow tracking of them so it can be seen that they are a productive part of this countries society. They are not allowed any form of benifits until they have proven themselves to be an advantage to society. Anchor babies will no longer be allowed. Just because your child was born here doesn't make that child an automatic citizen as well as the mother. The child was born here then you either get out and take the child or the child satys but the mother is leaving no matter what.

    Put an end to "benefits" for illegals. Fine employers. Secure the border. Establish the intent of the 14th Amendment (citizenship for slaves and their children born in the US). As my friend says, "if the children of foreign diplomats born in the United States are not citizens, then why would the children of illegal aliens born in the US be citizens? What logic establishes a different citizenship for children and their parents?"

    Yes, it can. But only if the public pressures the government to do so. The present administration has no interest in doing it because Obama needs the illegal votes if he has any hope of winning in November. He has shown he has a total disregard for The Constitution, so naturally he would try to win the election by whatever means he can.

    The problem is that Florida has began taking illegals off their voter registration and because Eric Holder tried to order them to"Cease and desist" and expected them to follow that unlawful demand, which they fervently say they will not, forces Obama to make his lapdog drop it or take it to the Supreme Court to fight. He doesn't want to do that, it will be thrown out and the Justices will even get a laugh out of the stupidity of even bringing it to the. Well, Justice Kagan will not laugh much since she will either have to vote for The Constitution or show who has her leash by voting to make Florida stop taking illegals off the resgistration.

    The anchor baby debate is not a meaningless taking point, it is a tool to impose amnesty.

    I am not a "statist", and the libertarians who make this claim are usually those making a load of money off of illegal labor. FYII: I'm sick of the crime and welfare dependency, and depressed wages brought about by illegal immigration.

    We have to get rid of Obama first, since he's pro illegal immigrants now, for their vote.

    The government needs to back the southern states, like Arizona, New Mexico, & Texas, & give them more power to enforce the laws, instead of the stupid government trying to sue Sheriff Joe.

    Totally stop the Welfare & other handouts to illegal immigrants. What sense does it make to be "enabling" the illegals? That's like the government giving heroin to heroin addicts! (Yes I know about the Methadone clinics-but they charge alot of money, to people with incomes)

    Yes, our country was founded by NON illegal immigrants. We have been letting people come here for over 200 yrs. I'd like to know how many immigrants have been let in, in the last 10 yrs. or 20 yrs? It's got to be a staggering amount, & why?

    At some point, this country has to have a red light to the thousands upon thousands of immigrants-especially the illegals, or the ship will sink. It's on overload already, don't you think?
    People can't find jobs. All the immigrants can get grants for free money to start businesses-yet American's can hardly ever get the same thing.

    No more Anchor babies.

    Businesses should get fined for hiring illegals.
    Illegals should get fined, & thrown in jail for awhile, instead of no repercussions for illegall...

    I tell you something, the Bush wars so far cost more than the illegal immigrants. more than $ trillion, that's more than $ 1000 million, for what? At least these "immigrants" do the work Americans do not like, very cheap labor and they also would not pay much taxes. Guard our borders with our soldiers. We do not need to have our soldiers in foreign countries. A vote against Obama is a vote against your self. Mitt Romney lives in a different world then you and does not connect with you!

    Are you kidding? Obama's economic policies are a FAILURE! Additionally, he is not a 'natural born citizen' so is ineligible for the presidency. His worldwide apology tour testifies to the wisdom of that requirement.

    Bush wars my eye. Obama in 3.5 yrs has got us $5 trillion more in debt. Bush in 8 yrs, total, did what?

    The illegal immigrants are costing us money-if there wern't illegals jumping our border all the time, we wouldn't have to spend the money on them.

    That's a really old fable about the illegals doing the cheap labor we don't want to do. Bull.

    Americans can't find jobs. We don't need illegals taking them.

    Obama is a crock. Romney is a better choice at every level.

    I so wanted to click on YES, but unfortunately many Americans don't have the stomach or the heart to do what it takes to stop the flow of illegal aliens (of all races and colors, not just Mexicans), also these countries where the illegals are coming from will not do anything to make their countries a better place for their people to live...

    How can we stop this if our own federal government continues fighting the individual states that are trying to stop the flood of illegal immigrants? In most other countries, getting caught illegally entering will land you in jail, or they will just shoot you, end of conversation, they don't give you free housing, free medical, foodstamps, free welfare, they give you a prison sentence and/or death.

    There should be NO anchor babies, period.

    Everyone should be forced to do it illegally. There should be no "anchor babies". They should be the nationality of the parent. No "gimmes".
    No state should be able to give drivers licenses to illegals. Any business that hires illegals should have their business shut down and fined.

    They don't want to stop it. Each side hopes it brings them more power. Anchor babies should be returned to the country of their parents, not granted citizenship for their parents breaking into our country to give birth.
