    Does not. Not in this country. For an illegal it does, but for a citizen, you'd be better off working at McDonald's and getting all the subsidies.

    Working at McDonalds is having a low paying job.
    Picking fruit is having a low paying job.

    How does one get subsidies, and the other not?

    You know, "them" people get free stuff is a favorite right wing meme. If they are illegal all they get is to work for low pay and pay taxes they never benefit from.

    Which is why we look the other war as they make their way across the border. There has been no serious attempt to control the border since the 1950s.

    Re: Would You Support Militarizing The Border With Mexico?

    I would certainly support militarizing the boarder. The Mexican War down there with the Cartel seeps into America everyday and we don't react in anyway. They traffic humans whether for immigration status or for sex slavery, they cart tons of drugs over that are illegal in the first place, and they destabilize entire regions of southern America with gangs and other groups that support the cartel. It is time America says enough and stops allowing itself to be used and abused by the Mexican cartel. Militarize the border and let them wage their war in their nation and if that stops the cartel's activity in America...all the better. I see this as creating jobs and supporting the military and I think it would be a step in the right direction.

    Slight error in my logic there. There's also the factor that one would have to travel several miles to get to a farm everyday. Mcdonalds is usually right down the street.

    I would not support militarizing anything. The military is for sustaining and developing national defense capacity, period. It is a full-time job.

    (Not that I believe we really have much of an "issue", but that would be a separate topic).

It worked well for Austria until they joined the Schengen area. I'm not just talking about building a taller wall but complete militarization of the border. It solves your illegal immigration issue for sure and will greatly reduce trafficking of all kinds across the border. What do you Americans think especially those who live near the border?
    Why not just do like Mexico and mine our southern border?
