When was the last time you went to a border state? Go into any public hosptial (the ones that can't turn you away) and look into the emergency or maternity wards. I pay over $300 a month for medical insurance and a $25 co-pay for general treatment and every perscription (as long as they can find generics). They are literally bankrupting the healthcare system at a time when American seniors need it the most.
The thing that pisses me off the most is that everyone says that they are willing to do jobs that American wont. What a bunch of crap that is. So what if a bunch of rich bastards don't get their lawns cut or if it costs me an extra $5 for some furniture. If I knew that $5 was the premium because it was going to paying a living wage for Americans...you're damn straight I'd pay it.
Also, the mexicans are all up in arms about our policies...why is it a 2 year felony to illegally cross into mexico (they want to keep the central americans out so they have monopoly on the $$$ from our country) and why does their military patrol the border? They want their illegals to come here because they send all the money back to their country. With that money coming in they don't have to address all the corruption in their own country.
Please tell me one thing that anyone from mexico has done to better society, help mankind, or anything other than having some oil, beaches, or some tequila. I'm not talking about mexican art (I think it stinks), poetry, or literature. I'm talking about something real that has made a difference in people's lives....science, healthcare, mathmatics, production....
