Perhaos we need to open the borders with mexico and stop trying to clamp down on illegal immigration. For one, it would result in a huge economc boom having million of more consuemrs enter the country. We talk about the consuemr being tapped out, but with million of immigrants buying stuff that will help the problem. In additon, illegals could use credit cards, banks, and spend money like legal consumers do. Americans need to abondon this narrow minded 'keem em out' approcach and consider the huge economic benefits of allowing open borders with mexico. More consumer spending, rising stock market, less unemplyment, more revenues and profits. With regards to national security that isnt a big issue. There are over 12 million illegals and there hasn't been one terrorist attack stemming from them. Also, bush, FBI and CIA have been doing a good job cracking down on terror.
