it always seemed to me the easiest and cheapest way to solve the issue is to make the economic climate unfavorable to attract undocumented workers.
make hiring them a capital crime?
Bro, I'm not going to lie to you... it would be hard. We got a lot of Mexicans around here, most of them are decent hardworking family types, and I know some of them have to be illegal.
But if we're just going to ignore the law, we're not a nation of laws are we? If we're not going to enforce citizenship and border issues, why bother having a border? Well we wouldn't have a country long for one thing...
I'd hate to be the one to do it, but yeah I'd do it if I had to. I think it is necessary. I don't think a sovereign nation survives long by allowing anybody and everybody to cross their border, stay as long as they want, use stolen or fake ID and SSN's to masquerade as a citizen or card holder, breaking the law for their own purposes, when there IS a legal avenue for doing these things.
