If nothing else we can start cleaning our country up by locking up felons fleeing from justice. Once the word gets out our felons will end up staying in Mexico since they won't be able to get back in. Maybe it's a fair trade for all the illegals coming our way.
They say 13 yrs to get citzenship? Hell any mexican willing to learn English, jump through hoops for 13 yrs, stay out of trouble, pay back tax deserves to be an American IMO lol. I think many Mexicans working here don't really want it that bad and may just go back to mexico. Which IMO would be good because they need all the help they can get building economy. Until mexico develops its own economy instead of the leach like relationship they have with America they can't reach full potential. Which IMO is great they have everything you need. Population, land, natural resources, access to the sea on both sides of country. Hell Mexico should be a world power not a 3rd world country.
