All we need to do is take Mexico's immigration laws pass them thru in English, put the Army on the border like they have. You'll hear them screaming in Chicago. No one has a sense of entitlement like Mexico...I don't know why.

Sorry about all the spelling mistakes this old one finger does a lot of paper work each day, does not land on he right key. You all take care.

It just occurred to me that the NCO, my former supervisor, a Texan, lives real close to the Resaca de la Palma battlefield site. When the Rio Grande is low, the Mexicans come over and steal his stuff.

The Charge of Captain Charles A. May. No wonder he has such a sense of humor. It's all crazy! Don't you just love America too! When the word goes viral, mainstream news has to be approved internally, and won't get it right anyway.

I think they could load up a train full each day here in Fort Worth. When I worked with Tarrant County Sheriffs Confinement we always had a bunch at our Green Bay
lock up waiting for the INS. Let mexico get mad, we need to send more back. I don't know how many we have here, but they all need to work the immigration the correct way. Not just the mexicans, but also the boat loads coming from
the Islands.
Steve I am like you I use the net, still have to throw out a lot of trask to get the truth. I spend about 8-9 hours on the net each day in this old wheel chair.

Steve-O, bingo. ALSO Mexico is angry because we are sending Mexican CRIMINALS back to them and now they are committing crimes over there, not over here ! They want us to keep them ! FAT CHANCE, amigo.

Your right Wayne, i get the majority of my news over the Internet now. Usually by the time it gets to a Newspaper it happened 2 to 3 days ago unless it's a disaster. And I still get my Sunday Comics,only now on Yahoo!
You get so much more info over the Net,not just what the media wants you to see.Example Mexico,who complains abpout OUR Immigration Laws,is building a WALL TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM GUATEMALA! You don't think THAT would be on your Nightly News.
