    I say take over mexico. Though we are in a lot of debt, and that would cost A LOT.

    How come Bush never sent additional troops to the border? Last I checked, we had illegal immigrants crossing prior to 2010. :mrgreen:

    Hahahaha. I guess I'm just wondering why this is such a hot issue all of a sudden. Illegal immigration has been a problem for a long time. No president in the recent past has attempted to tackle this issue. So why are people only noticing now? Why all of a sudden is this an issue that the Obama administration has to tackle? It's not like the illegals are all of a sudden doing something different. They didn't all turn into zombies in 2010 or something, imperiling all of our lives...

    it think this usually happened when the economy is shit and people need something to blame...so who is the best scape goat? illegals of course...so othr presidents probably did do this in past, my guess is when times were tough.

    Yeah but the illegals had nothing to do with the recession. Illegals have always been here, they didn't cause the recession. It's just weird that people are all of a sudden so angry and so rabid about illegal immigration.

    This has been a hot issue many times in the past you just need to look back in history. Although the history books have a way of dulling it down a little less than what it is right here and now.

    Since when has anyone blamed the recession on illegal aliens? Everyone knows the government caused the recession. Duh.

    I've lived in Arizona for 10 years. In all that time, I don't think I remember it ever being this fervent. I know that's not A LONG TIME, but people weren't making an issue about it during the 8 years of the Bush administration.

    The recession has added to the problem. People believe that the illegals are actually taking the jobs from them. Illegal aliens in no ways made the recession however they are going be targeted as a way to minimize the recessions effects.

    I've lived in Arizona since 1980 and I will have to agree with Biff. Although it's been an issue for Arizona since I can remember it seems now it's more nationally known.

    They do take many many jobs here in AZ, they simply will do the job for less money then most will.

    It is getting better since the Gov starting slapping a heavy fine on company's for having illegals on the payroll.

    I like the idea and say it's about frickin time. I want MY STATE BACK!!!!

    It's an issue now because most Republicans want to shine the light on Obama anything to throw mud, plus these wild west people from Arizona want to claim thier land back or something....easy now, only kidding, well, I think all the staes on the Mexican border should shoot anyone that is illegal, that might make them think twice. We have a lot of illegals around here, my father cringes watching all the kids go to the schools. I like to call the cops when my neighbor hires all the guys from the train station to do his landscaping, lol, they all run into the woods when the cops come.
