    Wouldn't it be cheaper for them to get their votes the way Al Franken did it?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

Only some kind of education reform (maybe) can fix that issue, and not so much a lame "amnesty" bill.
    Not all of them are totally uneducated, just like not all of them are intellectuals. The ditch diggers will dig ditches, truck drivers will drive trucks, equipment operators will operate equipment and engineers will design structures.

    To believe it's a bad idea to create jobs because not everyone will want it, or qualify for it is plumb crazy.

    Probably so, but they have to make some attempt at looking legit.
