    Not if we reform NAFTA and end farm subsidies along with some other common sense reforms. Remember most who come here would much prefer to stay home. They don't want to come to a hatefilled country that passes laws against them and persecutes them at every turn. They don't want to endure the danger of comming here only to be hunted down and deported. They love their countries and have deep roots there.

    America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity

      would still want to come. All these things are true now and smth like 10% of population of Mexico is in US right now. We may not be able to do much with NAFTA as it will require agreement of Canada and Mexico. And there is probably no chance that agricultural subsidies will be gone. Eventually migration may slow down but it's there to stay for a long time.
