Immigration bill to further militarize US-Mexico border

On Monday, the Senate approved its most expensive plan to beef up security on the US-Mexico border. The 67-27 vote will add 20,000 more border patrol agents and add an additional 350 miles of fencing. On top of that, 12 more drones are expected to patrol the the skies in the region. RT’s Ramon Galindo joins us to discuss how this plan will affect America’s security.

Wait I thought the USA was founded by FOREIGNERS ?? Apparently were all wrong … They were really "FOREFINGERS " … How could we have been so wrong !, that is according to JAMES HOFFMAN .

More anti-American hypocrisy. What does Mexico do to illegal immigrants? America has some of the most lax immigration laws in the world. All we ask is that HONEST people who truly wish to integrate and become part of America follow our laws. Yes, we are a nation of immigrants and we want people who will respect those who came before them to be a part of this melting pot experiment. Most illegals hate America and have no respect for our culture/laws so do not deserve to be here. Seal the border.

That is ridiculous. If they hated America they wouldn't be so eager to live here. The illegal immigrants aren't the huge drain on the U.S. economy that some would have you believe either. They actually are a net benefit. They contribute $15 Billion annually in tax revenue for social services while only costing $1 Billion. Illegal immigrants have been essential to social services keeping them solvent over the recent years. Also, between 50% and 75% do pay income taxes. There are downsides though.

I think we should have a better border control, not for immigrants,but for the cartels, Mexico is in chaos right now because of organized crime. kidnapping, drug smuggling,and murder are everyday events in border towns.

Would like to know where you get your stats from? If you quote a government agency, those numbers are as worthless as Obama's promises. There is no upside to "illegal" immigration, whether it be financial, social, or moral.

And why would we you want to invite a stranger into your house and you life that was disrespectful to you, you family, and all the values you believe in(live up to them of not), someone that didn't live by fair and just principles but instead we're here only for what they could get? If your thinking of "social justice", that is nothing more than the tyranny of a rioting mob, a blind beast of hate that shits on and destroys the good and the bad out of self-righteous malice.

listen america created the current boarder we see today so america needs to deal with the consequences and stop wining.

Not really, It's that our government instead of helping our neighbors to the south solve their problems so they can all be prosperous in their own homeland instead would rather spend all our money and send our people fighting unjustified-wars in the middle east. If anything the American government has done things that have caused problems in Mexico, the politicians want things just as they are, the people do not, here and there. Wouldn't you agree?

i have no choice but to agree with you since you just typed all my believes down. i have no argument really

Hey guys it's not just people coming across, there's also drugs coming into the US. We need to close the border and do it now.

Well John McCain, I'd like to ask you what about the drugs coming in from Mexico? Is this new border security going to stop that? I'll bet 5 years from now we still will have the same problems with drugs coming in from Mexico as we do today.
