Close our border with Mexico


You always say that you are open to solutions from regular people. I am getting sick and tired of going to a restaurant and its run by Hispanics and they hire them also which is cutting out hard working Americans that need a job to support their families. In Calif my daughter can't get a job at the local McDonald's because its run by Mexicans and they seem to only hire their own race. My son in law fought in Iraq and was severely injured by an IED in Mosul. He did this because he is a proud American and now he sees the illegal Mexicans coming across our border and is disgusted with our country.
I agree with the militias but my solution is a bit hard core which I think is needed. Instead of spending money in countries that we have no right getting involved in, use that money to build a 100 foot high brick wall with a 30 foot deep footing. Place razor wire across the top from Cali to Texas. You could also put huge spot lights along the top to turn the mexican side into day light. This way the only way to cross the border is legally and would cut down human and drug smuggling.
Also, hire another 10,000 Customs and Border Protection agents and put them on atv's, horseback and in 4x4 trucks continously driving the border, This would make a big difference because the spotters would see non stop patrols 24/7 thus making them stop coming. Our border protection is a joke and thats on a good day.
I hate to say that if it wasn't for my parents being in poor health, I would be in Canada where they don't have the problems we have here. If when my parents pass away, I have to take my grandkids to Canada where they will be safe and have a chance at a bright future, I will

A 100 Ft. Wall? I am a Texan and I disagree, our border does not need to be closed. we need to help make mexico a better place and let them drill for the oil they have and help them build a better finical state. if mexico wasn't such a poor and drug run country this wouldn't be a issue, but because we told them not to drill their oil, they had to turn to the cartel's. if we can make a open trade border, and a easy'er way to get a work visa, we'd have a lot less problems with illegally entering Mexicans. now i believe that they should learn the language of the country they are in and not have our country learn their language to talk to them.
