    Not sure where we're not communicating.
    Of course we can add tariffs

    And of course we would have to add them to ALL imports

    It would make USA products more competitive, but it would also raise prices accross the board

    But it also means other countries can add tariffs to our products....and that hurts our exporters, especially farmers

    The question is do we want to piss off our trade partners?

    And they offshored for cheap labor, the regulation and tax thing simply doesn't measure up to 32 semi skilled laborers for 14-16 hrs/day out the door for what one burger flipper gets here for eight (plus labor burden). A whole factory's worth of labor for what they pay one here.

    They did it the second it became technologically feasible.
    it doesn't matter why they come here the fact is we have laws that say they are not allowed to be here. we do not have laws that say companies can't go where they want to go.

    Why is immigration so hard to figure out. Secure the border but relax some of the legal means of entry.

    you asked...
    but it is not an American company
    it is a international company


    what you are proposing is to initiate a trade war with countries which host frms manufacturing/processing goods that may have the USA as one of its market destinations

    the next response, from china, et al, is to add similar tariffs to goods processed in the USA with ultimate sale in their nations


    is this really yours and what if's solution to our illegal immigration problem?

    No...the solution to the immigration problem is even easier. Fine the hell out of employers that hire undocumented illegal immigrants, imprison for second offense. Deport all the criminal scumbag types. Truly secure the borders. And this may shock you, but I am for creating some sort of pathway to citizenship for those already here.

    As for 'trade wars'...nah...no trade wars. I'd say we should implement and follow to the letter fair trade agreements with foreign countries. They should have as much fair access to our markets as our manufacturers are allowed their markets. Countries like South Korea for example would not be allowed to import a single Kia or Hyundai until their markets are opened fairly to US auto manufacturers.

    Try to keep up DD. The conversation is way past your comprehension at this point. Relevancy is a not an unusual requirement for posters who want to be taken seriously. I guess some don't.

    Seems like your "comprehension" is in another realm somewhere. Seriously....."Thanks Obama".....do you think Obama is responsible for all of the "illegal immigration" that preceded him....or do you honestly believe there was no problem? I'm trying to understand the psychology of what goes on in the brains of people who actually buy into this stuff.

    No, what we're witnessing is a unprecedented level of hypocrisy, as Bush haters selectively ignore the last 8 years under a Republican president who was called every name in the book.

    Would it kill you to be honest ?

    I never said that there weren't other interests that want open borders ocean! However, Big business is the BIGGEST factor between us having secured vs unsecured borders.
