Will Securing Our Borders Solve the Problem?

There is lots of controversy about how to solve our Immigration problems. Many of those who want to tighten up on immigration say that we should start with securing our borders.

Is start the key word here? Or can we secure our borders and then drop the issue?

To bring some perspective we can take a look at the Immigration Problems in Europe at the article linked to in this post.

What might solve the problem would be to make it less attractive for people to sneak into the country to steal our resources. Health clinics that served our countries poor, Senior citizen's on fixed incomes are now closing due to the cost of being forced to provide free health care to illegals. Drugs are a big issue. I don't think immigrants should be entitled to recieve General relief, food stamps, housing, and such. Many use multiple illegal ID's to milk the system. When Mexico tried to expand an airport (possibly helping tourism their, and creating jobs) the people rioted and won't allow it. They didn't want to get business licenses to sell flowers either. So they cross the borders, and sell without following the law~amazing the police don't bother them.

My father was an immigrant, so I'm not opposed to immigration. I don't think I should be forced to become Latino, because they want me to be. I didn't choose to cross the border, they did. In doing so, they should respect our country, not divide it with their hatred of "Americano's".
