    Regardless of the merits of many immigrants coming from Mexico and other countries into the US, the basic duty of the government is to control this flow of people and have the ability to decide which individuals should be allowed into the country and which should not. The argument that the market for labor will control the flow of immigrants is flawed, since it assumes no minimum standard of living, meaning that millions of Americans could be forced out of their jobs to accomidate immigrants who are willing to live just a little better than they did in Mexico or whereever. The argument in the US is not about whether there should be immigration, but whether it should continue as now, with no control over the number of people who come into the country. There is another aspect also. Why should Mexicans have first priority to enter the country simply because of their proximity to the US? Many poor people in other parts of the world would like an equal chance to enter and work in the US.
