Would you create a version of the minute men in your country to stop the inflow of illegal chinese immigrants??
no I wouldn't I got better things to do, you do realize that illegal immigrants do more good than damage to your economy don't you?

It's been awhile since I've taken geography, but I don't remember them sharing a border.

COME ON... Start making comparable analogies.

Mofo. Listen I like you. Your a Brother I just want our laws to be respected as you would want yours. I know your government as our is doing a really shitty job. Both our governments need to come up with a solution to fix this.
yes, but I'm not defending my government, you are defending the minutemen as "courageous and willing to to the job your government or mine for that matter won't do" that's my problem with you statements

and do you honestly think I got a solution?

There was a lot of protest from the Mexican government when your congres approved the wall, but the general opinion in the population (including myself) is that Americans can do whatever they want with your land, if building a wall will make you feel safer fine, the criticism went against my goverment for instead of focusing on improving our economy they are whining about the building of the wall

but i can sure tell you the minutemen are not part of the solution, I think you just see them as "illegal immigrants" and tend to forget they are human beings

I know there Human beings. I have friends who are here illegally but I would not report them. We helped a mother and daughter seek asylum from Columbia.

Just to clarify with facts, take a look at these charts:

Yes but I would help them become legal if they were living here already. I do not agree with sending them back. We need to change policies and the way things are done.

I think this one is just a little clearer, the other I though was somewhat clustered.

They shouldn't have acted like that. They violated the guy's freedom of speech rights. They don't have to like what he said. We have a controversy over illegal immigration in Birmingham. About a year ago a "multicultural" center in the Birmingham suburbs was shut down because it was being used by illegal immigrants to get rides to work. The local Catholic diocese cried foul. The dispute fueled quite a bit of talk.
