Shouldn't we focus our energy in combating obesity first and undocumented immigration later?

    The solution is to keep the OBESE Illegal Immigrants out of our country. That way you are tackling both problems at once.

    Just keep all the Fat Mexicans out of our country.

    First of all the government should be worried about immigration. They have to ask themselves why do these people want to immigrate here. Not just Mexicans Cubans risk their lives to make a good living for their families. They make rickety boats to cross the ocean and then they have to be deported. Now ask yourself this question "why is the government worried about FAT people when they should be worried about how some people are living in other countries," some people don't have enough to eat. Immigration is the governments problem, if they can invade Afghanistan to give them freedom then why can't they do that to other countries??? Plus it's not the governments fault that Americans want to stuff their mouths with Big Mac's they have bigger problems than that.

    Well, if we don't stop illegal immigration now, there may not be a country for us to combat obesity in. Also, we are trying to combat obesity too. In South Carolina a new law was passed that says by 2009 there won't be any soft drinks in elementary and middle schools and very few in high schools. So, people are working on both.

    Nice attempt at throwing in a red herring. No, we can look at solutions for both, thank you very much. No, obesity is not "more important."

    But, why should I take the time to answer you when there is a AIDS problem in South Africa?

    Do both. Get out there with the minutemen and start walking. You'll be helping america and watching the border and getting healthy at the same time! LOL

    How about we get some exercise by erecting a wall on the southernmost part of America. That should take care of both of your concerns.

    Why? do you mean we should encourage illegals to go on a diet so they can climb the fence quicker,all they have to do is to cut down on the burritos

    Maybe if we multi-task, and get our fat asses busy building a fence, the obesity problem will go away.

    Immigration is the more urgent problem. It is your personal choice to become fat or not.
