Questions Immigration Reformists Either Won't Or Can't Answer About US Illegal Immigration

In response:

Questions Immigration Reformists Either Won't Or Can't Answer About US Illegal Immigration

What is the major cause of Mexican citizens (and other countries' citizens) leaving their home countries and crossing illegally into the US? 

Is poverty in their home countries that cause? If yes, is home-country poverty addressed in Washington's current immigration reform attempt?  If not,  why not?

Would those same undocumented people either come to or stay in the US if they could have similar opportunities for prosperity at home that they find here?

If passed into law would this current US immigration reform stop Mexicans (and other people) from crossing our Southern border illegally?

Why have other attempts by Washington ( Reagan's 1986 Amnesty, Clinton's 1994 NAFTA and Bush's 2003 creation of DHS) failed to stop illegal immigration as promised?

Why do we seldom if ever hear US politicians criticize the corrupt Mexican government for part it plays in pushing Mexican illegal immigration into the US?

How has NAFTA and the 2006 Mexican drug war affected illegal Mexican immigration?

Why is the Mexican poverty rate at 50% when the US and Mexico share 1.25 billion dollars a day in cross border trade?

How many people are employed and how much money is made by US government contracted border security industries?

Are US corporations ( for example agriculture/construction/hotel-motel/meat packing) dependent upon undocumented laborers?

How much money does the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) charge US taxpayers for the annual detention of undocumented people?

How much has the CCA grown in the last ten years? 

Is immigration reform by US political parties an attempt to sway the American Latino vote?
