That will work out well.

Or, we can protect our boarders, maybe even pull all of our troops out of the middle east, put a bunch of them by Mexico and throw a wrench threw the drug cartels operation crossing boarders with drugs. Then maybe, just maybe the Mexicans would have a chance to recover a bit with a weakened criminal organization, and then they would rebuild instead of having to flee their country...
While are at it, we can actually end the war on drugs and instead focus on who is going in and out of our country. Then the drug cartels would really get hit because legal businessmen would take their money and it would be much harder to cross the boarder. But that would actually help Mexico, so it wont happen. The problem isn't what to do with illegals, the question that we need to ask ourselves is why are they fleeing their country in the first place and how to fix that problem.
Makes too much sense to ever happen. This is Amerika, if we can wreck our nation and screw other nations over with short term strategies while completely ignoring long term solutions, we will do it full force.

From your response, it doesn't seem that your problem lies in immigration/open borders but rather with how the problem the US handles people within its borders.
I am saying we need as near to open borders as we can safely have (from a security/safety standpoint) because of our history, our attempted moral high ground, our basis of existence as a country. Do we need to fix domestic policy at the same time? YES absolutely. However the more people we bring in, the more possible solutions to our problems, the more possible chance we have of becoming the almost unquestioned #1 country again, and the more likely our country enters a "golden age". We can't ethically or with integrity defend our right to free speech, our right to bear arms, or any of our rights, while turning away people from our country for non-criminal reasons.
^I love how immigrants commonly say that they have they right to protect their country's boarder but the US doesn't because we Americans were once immigrants. They happened to forget that every country including their own nation has been established, then re-established, and then again re-established by migrations. Oh the hypocrisies.
Want a history lesson on Mexico buddy? Or any other country for that matter? No country is any more righteous on this issue than another.
Because they don't want to end the War on Drugs. It's another money maker. Again, it doesn't matter who the President is. It's never happened, it isn't happening now and it won't happen in the future. Not even if YOU were president
It is simply not sustainable. That is the bottom line. We all want to live in a perfect utopia but that is not going to happen, or at least not until be make some sort epic scientific discoveries that change humanity. You can not have the cake and eat it. Best that we can do is stop screwing the world over financially (and oh we are), promote trade and non-interventionist policy, lead by example, and most importantly: take care of ourselves. If we can not take care of ourselves, we can not take care of the entire world.
