There was some lame movie I caught a portion of awhile back (Anaconda maybe)... Anyway, they had this automatic machine gun thing that they used to protect their camp. It was hooked up to motion sensors and the like and just fired at anything that moved. We should line our borders with those. ;-D

The fact that people want to live in our country yet break our countries laws to do it shows that they have no respect for our laws and think they are a joke. Then a small number come here and continue that disrespect through crime.

I'm all for immigration, if its legal

Couldn't you just keep throwing rocks until the gun ran out of ammo and then make a run for it?

We are not going to start executing people for a misdemeanor, happily.

Does anyone actually have a real suggestion for how to stop the illegal immigration?

The main problem is that we have the world's richest country sharing an enormous border with a 3rd world country. Of course people are going to do whatever they have to do to get in. If the choices are between my kids starving to death and breaking a law, I'll break the law every time. Call me a scofflaw, if you must.

How to fix the problem (which I don't think is as imminent a threat as some of you, but still):

1. Punish businesses that employ illegal labor. Severely. Both with jail time and by fines.
2. Increase the number of people who can enter our country legally. Set up an Ellis Island type thing on the Mexican border.
3. For those who don't wait, make an agreement with Mexico to institute stricter punishments.

Maybe someone else has some better ideas. But a wall will be climbed and we're not going to shoot them, so let's stop kidding around.

Shhh, quit giving them ideas. :-o

I guess you could, I never thought of that... !+)

Ok, maybe set it up with a thermal detector or something. Or maybe it auto-reloads and never runs out of ammo.

So I haven't worked out all the kinks yet, ok? O:-) :-b

On a side note... HOLY CRAP I ACTUALLY AGREE WITH AA ON SOMETHING! :-b

Speak for yourself, I've signed up to be a Minuteman, and I'm going hunting for illegals this weekend. O:-)

Yeah the snakes (or whatever they were protecting themselves from) weren't that smart. !+)

Maybe you don't have the motion sensors, but every 30 seconds there's just a burst and the area is sweeped. No one would have time to run through. There, crack that one. :-D
