  •  Your Statement Justifies Illegal Immigration (1+ / 0-)

    From the south because "we share a long border with Central America" i.e. with the south. My point is, we have a long border with the north too.

    I'm not even sure why this debate over anything having to do with "they are all from central america"

    It's not a debate, the facts are what they are, there is no 'argument'.

    •  Where does justify ever come into this? (3+ / 0-)

      Math is math.

      Longer transactional borders will equal more opportunities for immigration in comparison to oceanic nations.  That's a fact.  You through out a statistic saying most of our immigrants came from Mexico and Central America.   I observed that as a matter of math,  this would be more likely to happen then say, independent boat people from Cuba or the British Virgin Islands.

      The contrary point that it doesn't happen from Canada as much is also not a valid viewpoint, as you combined Mexico and Central America, which combined is more then 250M in population VS Canada's 34M.  

      Math isn't about justification, it's about statistical possibilities.
