    A survey was recently done in MX which asked If you could legally immigrate to the USA today would you go? The answer? 80% of Mexicans say they would leave MX and come to the USA. What does that say about the country of MX when most every citizen would rather leave for America than stay???

      And as long as we keep incenting them to come here and making it easy, they will. It's easier to move here than to fix their own country. Time to close the door. Then they will be forced to take on the corrupt government, drug gangs, etc...

    What part of "ILLEGAL" do they not understand! ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL! I don't care WHERE they are from, if they are here ILLEGALLY, SEND THEM BACK!

    illegals would not be here in the first place if they had no business being here, but Americans hand them low paying jobs that many Americans refuse to do.............Its the American way....doesnt mean these illegals should be granted citizenship....Not all Mexicans want citizenship........they would like to remain Mexicans but earn enough money to give their children to be successful. Its the American way.

      Americans don't "refuse" to do those jobs. That's a myth. How about we take all those on welfare and have them do these jobs. TWO problems solved.

    Hey Mexico. My mom's parents, brothers and sisters been living in Mexico for 35+ years. Isn't time to make them citizens. Oh no that's right, let the mob kidnap a cousin, hold them for ransom, not to mention not to help catch these gangs but at the same time not give my grandparents aunts and uncle their citizenship. Why they live there beats me. So my cousins who were born there yes they are citizens but not my aunts and uncles? How about you just mind your own buisness and leave the Unites States for us LEGAL Americans. Keep your filth that want to come here ilegally on your side of the border.

      Go ahead, as long as YOU provide for them and stop expecting the government (i.e. those of us who pay taxes) to support them. Otherwise, you're just a thief.

    Are you kidding me? The Mexican government NEEDS to be more concerned with the crime, killings and fleeing of its own citizens THAN meddle with the USA

    The problem – The US is supporting the low income people of Mexico. Most of the $$ they earn goes back to Mexico. The US is supporting the low income, guess what, the Mexican gevernment doesn't have too, we do.
    The Solution – No jobs for LEGAL immigrants and fine anyone who provides them jobs. NO JOBS...NO REASON TO COME HERE, NO REASON TO STAY...

    Throw that Mexican junk of a brief in the trash, where it belongs. Mexico is a country in and unto itself. It has absolutely no say or jurisdiction in United States sovereign law making and that includes the State of Arizona. Throw the infidels out.
