    I don't think he meant shut our borders, he meant control our borders, or enforce our borders, which is what every other country in the world does.

      I completely agree with you. We have to show some common sense with this issue. We cannot have open borders.

        And that means re-negotiating NAFTA and CAFTA to better serve the interests of poor common folk south of the border. I mean, come on. Do YOU want to risk your life to work thousands of miles away from your family? Of course not. Nobody does.
        Supporting beter labor and environmental standards as well as protections for small farmers south of the border as a way, the ONLY way to curb immigration is a deft way to square the immigration circle, and take what is arguably the GOP's strongest issue away from them.
        All we need is the political courage to stand up to the big corporations that benefit from these unfair pacts.

      Because that's right out of the Minuteman playbook.
