I think you're pretty much spot on...

So, you are suggesting that it would behoove us to emulate Cuba, China, North Korea, Iran, etc. in our border policy. I take it that you are a big fan of those wonderful nations. Yes?

P.S. - Is there anything quite like the ALL CAPS BOLD to tell you that someone copied and pasted from a mass-mailing from one of their religious Right contacts? My aunt on the lunatic fringe of the Catholic Church (think Opus Dei) sends me this stuff all of the time - all bold, all caps, all the time. Never fails. That makes your arguments stronger, don't you know?

Looks like a chain letter to me.

We don't need to emulate those other countries, but we shouldn't be giving illegals all of the benefits that many American citizens can't get either. What they should be getting is an all-expenses paid trip back home, and I ain't talking about some ranch hand's land in Texas or New Mexico either. If they want to be Americans, do it legally.

Bottom line is our borders are too open, and it's time to start playing hardball.

I certainly don't think it would be right to follow in those nations border policies at all...but there has to be some kind of limit to what illegal immigrants can do here.

I'm all for people from other countries coming here and wanting to make a new and better life for themselves...even if that means sending home money to their families in other countries. I just want them to do it legally and have to pay taxes like the rest of us. I don't think it's right that many illegals are coming here and getting a free ride. It's a slap in the face to immigrants who have gone through the proper steps to become Americans and are hardworking taxpayers and it's a slap in the face to the rest of us who have been here all our lives and have to pay taxes for them. There has to be some sort of middle ground between shooting them at the border and giving them a free ride.

Add a free lawyer and the American Constitution rights to that list.

Its hard to secure the borders . If you do , you will be considered Anti-Latino . If that happens , you lose all your Spanish votes.

Yep, our border policy is an absolute joke. I say you show up to the emergency room and aren't a citizen, you get treated and ICE or the INS escorts you out of the hospital. Like SteelCityMom said, I am all for you coming here, LEGALLY, if you are here illegally, you get a one way ticket home (we might even land the airplane for you to let you out - just kidding). Before you can become a citizen, you must be able to hold a basic understanding of English. It is absolutely ridiculous the amounts of illegals in this country, and it needs to stop. I would love to know how many tax dollars are wasted yearly on giving these criminals social services.

I know, I have heard the argument before, we are all immigrants. Yes we are, and my ancestors came through Ellis Island and became citizens legally.

PS: I THINK CAPS AND BOLD ARE NEAT

Not necessarily. Think about all the red tape and expense you have to go through to immigrate legally. How do you think people who did it the right way (and pay taxes) feel about someone cutting corners, taking cash under the table, getting free stuff, etc?

You also have to remember that Hispanics aren't a monolith. There are a lot of different ethnicities that fall under that category and they don't all like each other.
