    Wouldnt be feasible , besides if they did , they would have to use the military to root out the druggies and corrupt politicians.

    Or should we do that before we give them citizenship.

    It cant be done, period , to late for that.

    Who said anything about citizenship... well at least for a while (like 10 years)... More like they are a territory (without the benefit of most of the bureaucracy from DC). NOW do you see the economic potential...

    I see the potential but.
    Historically Americans do not have the patience or will for such a thing, unless it could happen in two consecutive terms it could never happen.
    Even then the conflict would tear the nation apart.

    Every Mexican would be looked upon as a potential enemy.

    Cant happen, the logistics wont fly right or left.

    Think with me for a while:

    NO EPA, NO OSHA, NO Dept/LABOR, etc...

    Since the country is a territory and we are in control... then we have a VALID reason to send ALL non-citizens back to their territory... as they can get a good job there. TIGHT border security (gotta use those drones somewhere after be bring them home from Iraq/Afgan).

    And we could even build our nuc and coal fired elec plants down there... no EPA... <grin>

    Seriously... any time there is potential for cheap labor... economic activity will happen. The China boom is a clear example.

    Perhaps 1/5 of the Mexican population is in the USA illegally [@20 million] . When you look at it that way, i figure we are entitled to some land mass in a fair exchange. That would be 20%. Start picking mexican states. Even at a low-ball 10%% figure,.. Ithink they have about 30 states. We should get 3 at a minimum.

    20 million ?

    Yea right , more like 200 million.

    Several years ago the whites used to be the majority , blacks second , indian , asians , etc ...

    Now its white majority , illegals second , blacks falling behind , and whites are next.

    I'd venture to say 20 more years illegal population will be friggin Huge. Not only are they crossing the border in thousands a day , the women are popping out babies like popcorn.

    I feel sorry for my kids , they are going to have alot of crap to deal with.

    The entire population of mexico is 100 million. Illegals estimates vary a lot, nobody really knows. estimates from mexice are pretty safe @ 10 million, may be twice that. Many illegals are not from mexico.

    Okay. We should consider some other nations to annex too.

    Keep in mind the US population is only about 300 million, so we do not to get over ambitious.

    Build a 20' wall with multiple layers.

    A 200' mine field.

    Put snipers every 500yds in towers.

    Problem solved.

    Before you say it would be too costly how about you go google how much is spent on just the war on drugs every year, including the cost of law enforcement, prisons, and inmates and post it for all to see.

    annexing Mexico would be a huge mistake, it would instantly put 90 million Mexicans on welfare.

    Keep them south of the Rio Grand, and everything will be peachy
