    If we can't solve our own problems WRT education, health care, social services ... you name it ... how could we ever hope to take on all those additional numbers of people & expect to be in a better position to solve any of the above problems, rather than just make it a larger task.

    They say it costs too much to build a fence, but how much is it costing NOT to have the fence?

    So ironic that there is so much rancor over AZ making Mexico angry enough to sue AZ ... yet what other country really had to build a wall to keep anyone OUT. Ancient China and Rome come to mind ... to protect from outsiders wanting to grab some (or all) of their wealth and power.

    Mexico would rather not have anyone immigrate to their country, it appears

    the legislation, signed April 23 by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, is similar to Reglamento de la Ley General de Poblacion — the General Law on Population enacted in Mexico in April 2000, which mandates that federal, local and municipal police cooperate with federal immigration authorities in that country in the arrests of illegal immigrants.

    Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

    The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to "economic or national interests," violate Mexican law, are not "physically or mentally healthy" or lack the "necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents.

    "This sounds like the kind of law that a rational nation would have to protect itself against illegal immigrants — that would stop and punish the very people who are violating the law," said Rep. Steve King of Iowa, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration, citizenship, refugees, border security and international law.

    "Why would Mr. Calderon have any objections to an Arizona law that is less draconian than his own, one he has pledged to enforce?" Mr. King said.
    It would appear that Mexico doesn't have a very big problem with illegal immigration ... either because of their very strong immigration law ... or because nobody really wants to go there to look for a job anyhow.
