I canít believe that it costs $12,000.00+ to kick a Mexican back into Mexico.
Are we taking all of the illegalís cash on hand? These people carry cash, so we should fine them out of their cash before we kick them out.
Then we should do an acid tattoo that marks them as illegal so that they can never get a job in this country again.
As for our cheap labor needs; I would allow registered Mexicans to travel and work but they could never become a citizen nor would their kids be citizens.

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
A good idea if you ask me. They come for the work, they can be forced to leave because of the work
As for enforcing immigration laws against employers, if Obama has raised the number of employers caught and punished hiring illegals, more power to him. Making it too painful for employees to hire illegals is the foundation of solving the illegal immigrant problem.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
Bottom line, we need to crack down on employers. The government has an internet website where any SS/green card number can be verified in mere seconds. The ONLY reason we have this massive illegal problem is that greedy employers think they can get away with exploiting illegals with pittance pay and crap working conditions. The sad part is that they are right, because our government doesn't spend the resources necessary to find them.
As for those evil greedy employers, again I'm speaking only of the construction industry, that just isn't the case. In fact ...if you look at how most businesses are run, it would be considered losing money. Case in point, lets say the job I'm doing has been sold for 25million, the company's profit is a percentage of that, now if that same job had to be sold for 30million, because of labor costs being higher, and they maintained the same profit percentage, they would make more by it costing 30million then the 25 million.
One thing that needs changing in this nation of ours, is the thinking that business is evil, and profits are a bad thing, the only reason I can see for going into business, is to make a profit, and that profit has to create a better living for you then working for someone else, if it doesn't then why go into business, and live with the headaches of owning a business.
When was the last time anyone here worried about making a $15,000 a week payroll? When was the last time you went down and took a 30 day loan out to meet payroll because someone who owed you money was late in paying, you don't have the option of telling your employee's that they are going to have to wait because you don't have their money, at least not if you are going to stay in business for long. To those that keep harping on those evil business men, try starting and running one, I think your tune would quickly change
