#1 Clearly not our best. Must be abjectly useless if even Mehico doesn't want 'em.

#4 Don't understand how when Trump insults illegals as hard as he can they still come. Some people have no pride I guess. And why the hell are Indians coming up thru Mejico?

#5 They're desperate. I don't begrudge them for trying; if I were to put myself in their shoes I can see the Jean Valjean-style logic of trying to feed one's family by pushing on a baker's open door. But that doesn't mean we should leave the door open and tolerate theft. Ultimately this policy is a disaster for everyone, including - maybe especially - for the illegals who live in the shadows with no protection against rape of all sorts, figurative and literal.

Better: They like my ancestors and everyone I work with must enter this country through the front door-- legally.

If you have an asylum claim, take it to your nearest US embassy or consulate. If not, apply for a visa and get in line.

#6 When I taught a class in Inda 15 years ago, many of the students said their main goal was to get to America. I jokingly told them to go to Mexico, because the US seemed to be letting in anyone from Mexico.
On the other hand, in the IT department at my company, there are sections where I wonder if I'm back in Bangalore.

#7 Remember. Allowing those on less than average wages to immigrate harms the economy, by lowering average wages which puts pressure on wages for the poor & raises their rents .

#8 I have nothing against value additions to a foreign country's human resource/intelligentsia, or legitimate emigration . But most of these samples, trust me you don't want them.

If the first step into a country is an illegal one, it's a promise of behavior to come. Indians by nature are sheep, they'll abide by most laws, jump through every hoop, ever hopeful and thankful just to be there. But don't underestimate the shitkickery some of us can get up to when in the wrong company. Besides, the ones who get through the H1B programs or have investments are generally harmless hindus or christians. The ones who have to sneak in are those once denied entry. Muslims and the like.

#9 The ones who have to sneak in are those once denied entry. Muslims and the like.

Or just those who don’t want to wait their turn for approval, with the possibility they might not be approved.

#10 Some of them may just be tricked into it by the intercontinental smuggler networks. They probably are the sort who think this is the only way to come to America. Our own governments are to blame for their plight. The Long Thin arm of the law just doesn't mean much to these cartels. It's sad is what it is.

But most of them would be people escaping/avoiding something, but with enough money to pay coyotes.

#11 Hindus might seem harmless, but they can be just as oppressive towards their neighbors as anybody else when they have a firm majority (although they haven't seem as keen to turn the nations they emigrate to into garbage, like Muslim refugees). Any group can. Observe the oppressive religious regulations effecting diet and dress in Hindu states in India, the Hindus who keep Muslims or atheists or anybody else from keeping and slaughtering cattle. And on a totally different note, India's own corruption no doubt makes this seem like a more logical step. If you HAVE to pay to avoid the bureaucrats back home, why not assume it will be the same anywhere? Why think that anybody will actually give a crap about the law once you have a chance to grease their palms when you haven't ever been given a reason to? I mean, most US politicians and deep state officials don't actually care about the law either, so they're not even very wrong in that assumption.

#12 I worked closely with a pair of Indian guys back in the late 90s (work with a ton of them now but different stories). The two guys (back in the 90s) made a lot of business trips to Silicon valley to work with my company. One of the guys really wanted to emigrate to the US, the other after a week wanted to go back home. It takes all kinds.

Left the company before I learned if the one guy ever managed to emigrate.

#13 They're desperate.

Excuse me? Did you read the article? Any Indian capable of paying that much cash per head to be smuggled into the USA isn’t desperate. If they have that much money, they can live quite comfortably in many places in India. Put a bandage on your bleeding heart.
