Illegals Are Not Just Hispanics -- But the Problem is In Mexico

Will someone do something about our borders!! How many more people have to die for our politicians to do something? And don't write me emails tell me about how racist I am about Hispanics--I am a Hispanic born of immigrants! This is so much more than just a Hispanic issue. This is more than racial tensions or hang-ups. This is about security for our citizens. This is about ensuring we, the citizens and tax payers of this country, are not paying the costs of third-world country's corruption-born social and economic ills. What are we--a global Welfare center?

Read the NY Times article that got me steaming!

Brazilians Streaming Into U.S. Through Mexican Border
By LARRY ROHTER

BRAÚNAS, Brazil - For years, Jaider de Andrade, a 35-year-old farm worker, talked about going to the United States to look for work, and early in March he finally agreed to a trafficker's offer to fly him to Mexico and have him guided across the border there. By month's end, though, he was back home here again, in a coffin.

Those waiting one afternoon did not want to talk with a reporter about their travel plans, but the Federal Police delegate for the region, Rui Antônio da Silva, estimated that 90 percent were headed for the United States via the Mexican route. "We believe that just in this region there are about 30 gangs that offer this service to people," he said. "It's a very lucrative business, and a lot of people are involved."
