    and what would secure the border? giant concrete fortresses like this one?

    The will of the people would be expressed through a vote by the House, as it was through the Senate.

    No it doesn't. No matter what it says, border security will remain unchanged because the idiot liberals in power won't allow it to be funded, any more than they have the last couple of times border security has been mandated. Maybe we don't want to reward criminal aliens within our borders, did you ever think of that? Back in the 80s, we gave amnesty and said never again. Now we're doing ti again for 3x as many criminal illegal aliens?

    Screw that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It would help if we'd just ENFORCE THEM!

    We could hire illegal immigrants to keep the cost down.

    The kind of country that doesn't have an illegal immigration problem.
