We need to stop illegal immigration. Swine flu is just one of the many diseases that are flooding over from Mexico. I have family who are nurses and it is a fact that they perpetually see cases of tuberculosis coming from people who can't speak english and are obviously illegal immigrants from Mexico. Obama was confronted with the question if he's going to close the borders, and he said it would be akin to closing the barn doors when the horses already escaped. WRONG! A few horses have escaped. We must close the door before the rest do. Mexico is on the verge of cataclysmic state and economic failure, all due to their own fault, not ours. If our borders stay open, they will flood over, drug cartels, diseases and all, as has already been happening. I know that sounds 2-dimensional and even cruel, but unfortunately it's the truth. I'm sorry. There's a reason most first world countries are advising against travel to Mexico. We can not fix the Mexicans burdens by wasting our money and taking on third-world diseases.
