    When are the Homeland Security folks gonna cut ties with Mexico. Mexico will not let in immigrants from any other countries at her borders. Straite hypocracy to anyone who sides with them on this issue. What do the Unions want more cheap labor. They could not handle what they have had a manopoly on for years. They should mend the fences of the American people they have exploited for so many years and mind their own business. Mexico has a way of dealing with their people so ship them back and forget about this I D Crap. Why in the world is everyone so paranoid about Illigals rights when that is totally an oxymoron. They dont have any rights. Hello what does the word illigal mean hello. Drop out of college because you are not getting smarter just wierder. I dont believe some of the things that come out of some peoples mouths. These Union folks should get real jobs and work for a living then we wouldnt need the illigals here to do their work for them. Folks spend 10s of thousands of dollars on college and will write an article that is absolutaly well whatever.
