There is no wall between the US and Mexico.
the US is our (Canada) best friend and biggest trade partner. And Canada is the US's biggest trade partner.
These things that depicts Canadians thinking they are better then Americans are done by people who are neither.

I thought it was more showing the whole butthurt Harper thing over the Keystone pipeline. Harper and Obama don't get along that well.

Also, we're slowly getting closer to China than we are to the States, although that's a federal imperative as Canadians still flock over for some good ol' crossborder shopping.

It made no sense for that pipeline to be built anyways, all it would have done was make it easier for Canada to sell to China, once the pipeline was finished the jobs that pipe made leave too.

At least if Canada wants to **** us they can pay drivers to get the oil to refineries.

As for the China drift, personally I think any closer relations with China and Russia is a huge mistake, but as always nobody wants to listen until **** hits the fan.

There is a wall in some places of the US-Mexico border, some other areas just have a chain link fence, in others there is an "electronic fence" (a network of sensors and drones), and some other places on the boarder have nothing.

as a texan...i can confirm we do indeed have a wall on the mexico border....
the hypocrisy here is kinda silly....alot of people around where i live are against illegal mexican immigrants....but when they need a pool built, fence put up, etc they know exactly where the day laborers hang out and do not hesitate to go hire them.

You know as someone of Mexican descent who actually knows people here living illegally, while I can appreciate the suffering one goes through and the economics at play.... I really wish some of my peers would respect the law a little more once they're actually in the country. :/

It's like yeah I know you need money and work, but when you start selling shady goods at the flea markets or ignore building codes, you make us all look bad. Just crack open a book and make at least the effort you know?

Maybe you don't ask for a city permit to build the room, yet.... but at least check to see if the building placement itself is legal so they don't have to tear it down later.

i completely understand that point. a few bad apples really do spoil the bunch in this case. i have the utmost respect for someone who wants to come here to make a better life for themselves or their family.
it really grinds my gears when people gripe purely because someone speaks spanish too. once my father was at a self checkout and started griping because he had to select english.....i then reminded him of how in quebec, canada we walked straight into a womens restroom because it was the only one without english under the french....his face turned beet red remembering this little faux pas

Personally I hope Americans get around to learning new languages, not so much because English shouldn't be the language of business but because it still isn't in some places and knowing foreign languages could be a way to be more competitive. I actually know plenty of Whites near border states who speak Spanish and this is good and of course in Mexico they have English classes offered in practically every street corner, but there's a significant amount of Koreans, Chinese and Arabs doing so as well, in fact a lot of those guys know 4 languages.

But as for my original point, it had very little to do with learning English, seeing as this country is generous enough to print most of its print/online resources into dozens of languages. :/ Then again that's California, I don't know if that's the case in TX.

i was just expanding on my first point with the whole language thing. although i certainly hope it does become more of the norm in the US to at least learn some of the language of our neighbors. i personally cant speak fluent spanish, but i know just enough "spanglish" to communicate what i need to.
luckily, like you said with online resources and the like i do feel like language is becoming much less of an issue. especially with translator apps on smartphones as well. except for the stereotypical texan that is too stubborn to even try to learn another language.....and sadly they exist in large numbers. it is the extremes on both sides that make the whole immigration issue even well....an issue

I wish we (in Canada) had day laborers that I could hire for $50 a day.

Everyone has so many rights and safety rules... labor is expensive here. Construction workers are actually paid pretty well. This kinda sucks cause' it makes it so expensive to build anything.

eh I have family in Canada and live in NY. It is a guarded border but it is a very friendly one. Sometimes you get an unfriendly border guy on either side but they are just doing their job. Sometimes people try to get across illegally or with drugs so you damn well better allow them to check your car. I knew a guy who didnt have a passport and went across in a trunk. My dad once got stopped by the canadians and they made him dump all his american worms for fishing on the american side of the border. Its not at all messed up it's just life and trying to stop the horrible pieces of **** that traffic humans or drugs. Not to mention criminals escaping the law on either side

Crossing the border into Canada land they look at your passport and ask why you're there and then tell you to have a nice day. The American side after showing your American passport ask a **** ton of questions and sometimes search your car for no real reason. If anyone were to build the wall it'd be the Americans to do it.

As someone who has crossed between Canada and the US many, many, many times, it really varies. Sometimes going into the US is really simple, sometimes going into Canada is a bitch. Sometimes it's the other way around. It all depends on who's working the border whenever you cross.

No Nintendo? But in all seriousness its horrible being illegal. I was born in mexico and was brought here at a very young age, was brought up as an american. But everyday Im reminded that since I wasn't born here I can't do some certain things. I need to get to school and can't get a driver license, next year when I go for my bachelor degree Ima have to pay triple, because I'm out of state, event though Ive been here all my life.

Is that why instead of giving me US citizenship I was giving a work permit? Explain that one to me. People always tell me well you can do this or that, They can't deport cause of this but when it comes to illegals the law won't matter to them we are not US Citizen so we don't get any rights.
